Who heals better in redeemers? Sylas/Staffie?
After balancing I saw they fixed Sylas party heal where randomly 3 players get chosen even if a player has full hp, now the skill prioritizes members with the lowest hp. But the skill has a long cooldown, so his more useful heal skill is IMO soul drain, activating every 30 seconds, giving 3 members 6 seconds of succubus fang kind of leeching effect. Is Staffie still superior in the matter of healing a redeemer party? Because I see people asking for Staffies to join in Balor parties even though they already have 1 or 2 Sylas.
I have the feeling Sylas might be better if he spam soul drain as often as possible for an aggressive party. But his soul drain works silently, so other players might not even notice their hp stays high despite being hit occasionally, unless they pay attention to the status bubble and know about Sylas' soul drain at all. But everyone knows about Staffies' heal skills because she's an older char, has visible corona even with turned off visual effect of other players and a loud prompting sound for regeneration.
I'm asking this because I've come to terms with Sylas' low-ish DPS in redeemers and think he is much better off as the last man standing, keeping party's health full kind of guy. I mean to solo 1 bar of Neam's HP, my capped 63 SPD + 2800 ADD LS Fifi needs average 5:20, but my also capped 84 SPD + 4200 ADD Sylas needs 6:20 (I'm fairly good on both chars). Come on, that's just insane DPS difference. (The same thing on some S3 raids too, like Regina, Lugh, Eochaid, Terminus, Aes...)
So I want to practice my Sylas heal timing to contribute more on the party's HP regeneration instead of trying to maybe increase 10% of my DPS with other SP skills. And the +1000 Att. impulse zone is very useful in Balor as well, because most people don't have their Att capped to 33500 without soup+kitty drink, so the timing of using it also needs improvement.
