Healing in the arena

#1golDroger88Posted 11/19/2012 5:15:22 PM
The first time I duelled in the arena I realized what HUGE mistake I made...not having highed my faith to just 12 so that I could have used heal.
Now I have another character, have heal and just started to duel in the Arena.
The point of the post is: as I said I started using heal in the arena and it works very well indeed but...I feel like a douchbag. I think From should just have disabled ALL healing possibilities in the Arena.

Why? You put the points in, you're carrying a talisman, and you're using an attunement slot for it. Seems fair to me.

Why? Because **** you is why.

I always get the same image when I see people heal in the arena - Desperation.

I guess it's harsh but I could never see myself healing in the arena. I think of it as sudden death kinda thing, see how far you can without dying. It's more exciting that way.

Of course this is all IN MY OPINION... but I feel that others should also consider this.

And to end this off!

HEALING IS FOR LOSERS, BECAUSE WHY ELSE WOULD YOU HEAL

Hm... it seems that we are at a disagreement here zee zee. This will surely put our e-friendship at risk. I propose an e-get together to make things up. I'll bring the vodka and you can bring the beer.

It's called Red Tearstone ring.

I can't heal, I equip this when I'm low on hp after a arena fight I just won. INSTANT GRATIFICATION!

Also my secret weapon.

Dumb question: it's been a long time since I played, but I never remembered an arena mode... is this added via a patch or is it related to the "prepare to die edition". But I thought the ptde was PC only... man I've been away longer than I thought...

Isn't it the same thing?
I have a lvl 100 dex-vit build with 12 points in faith just to heal myself in the arena but it feels sooo cheap to use it...
This is my opinion, and still I think I will use heal cause the Arena is filled with players that aren't even going to attack you with a weapon, infinitely casting (invisible) spells, healing, running away from you when winning, absurdly lagging, only looking for bs...
Maybe I'm just a bad player, after all.

If your opponent gives you enough time to use a healing miracle, then all the power to ya'. It's your opponent's fault for giving up that golden opportunity.

I will acquiesce to your good feelins aneed...I don't condone any healing in PvP anyways.
