What's the best class for healing

#1Obl1TeRaTEPosted 2/9/2013 3:16:58 AM
And any recommendations on a good unit for that class?

I promoted Lissa to the War Cleric class. When paired with her husband her defense is high enough that that she can take quite a few hits. And when equipped with a killer axe she has a chance to one hit kill enemies.

SAGE.
War Cleric is a gag.
Healing Heart stacks with Tomefaire (And Valflame) so it's hands down Sage, unless you need Mov, in which Valkyrie.

Having a healer who can take multiple hits from enemies and one hit kill them as well is no gag. She's paired with Frederick, so she already has MOV.

But I do agree that Sage is great as well, the higher MAG means longer range for Physic.

Also, if you can find a Bolt Axe to take advantage of her high Magic stat, you'be be good to go.

Yeah but most of the people with access to War Cleric make better Sages or Valkyries than War Clerics (they have - Str and +Mag , though there's a few exceptions).

Looking at Lissa,
HP STR MAG SKL SPD LCK DEF RES
80 28 48 42 42 47 30 41 (Sage)
80 38 42 37 41 47 37 44 (War Cleric)

So we gain 10 STR, 7 DEF, and 3 RES and lose 6 MAG, 5 SKL, 1 SPD.
Alright... but wait, Tomefaire and Valflame! Their Magic Buffs add to the range (of 1-[MAG/2]) and effect staves-- so really Sage has 16 Magic over the War Cleric.
Oh, Durability.
Alright, War Cleric could equip Helswath, so that's 12 Defense over the Sage.... then again, outside of a couple chapters, Healers shouldn't be getting targeted anyways-- especially not with the availability of the Physic staff.
