Not too long ago, I got my second character to the level cap (40) in WAR.  It was a first for me in any MMO.  Now we have another first, my third character reached level 40.  This time it was my Rune Priest, Hurrik.  That's three Dwarf's, only one more for the set!

Hurrik is my healer.  Doing damage is fun and all, but sometimes I get the urge to keep my allies alive.  Also, it always seem like Order is short on healers.  Instead of complaining about it, I rolled one.  It always bothers me when a non-healer complains about no healers.  Unless they have one they need to do something about it.

So far, Hurrik is only Renown rank 42.  Since he is an alt, that's fine with me.  He may never reach the renown cap, but he can still participate in everything I want to do.  Currently, I have him decked out in full Annihilator.  He can use some Conqueror gear, but for now I am holding off.

I enjoy playing him but I'm not a big fan of the RP mastery trees.  We don't actually have a healing or damage tree since they are mixed together.  That means the RP is more of a hybrid than WP's and AM's as they can spec healing (or damage).

This setup has quite an effect on our gear.  There is no ideal set for any spec.  Sure you can get a healing spec, but that doesn't help the damage spells in our trees.  1.3.6 is going to try and remedy the situation by letting us convert damage stats into healing and vice versa.  Even if I never switch to DPS, it is still a buff to my healing. 

Even with the issues I still have fun when I play him.  It's nice to be able to help out my guild with another healer.  It also allows me to be more flexible.  If we need a tank, healer or dps I can help.  Next up will be my Slayer, he has quite a bit to go until 40 though.
