Higher armor means higher cost when hit, lower armor means lower cost when hit. Using a healer can help u use a lower lvl armor and more cost efective. 1 more very hard to calculate help is, it lowers your amo cost to kill monsters, since u do not have to stop and heal while a monster is atacking you, the monster regens less and so u use less shots to kill it. On the othere hand, if u kill a monster and dont have healer, u have to stop after it to heal yourself, so you are still paying for healing.... Becouse of it making hunting faster, a recomendation is to use a healer when participating in a event to kill a certain monster, like the bigest loot wins or so..... Becouse u are time limited and its logical the more monsters u kill the bigger chance you got to get also the biggest loot. I know its alot about luck, but it matters if u have 10 spins at a roulette or only 7. In the long run you will win more events, and those make more profit all at a very low cost. Becouse like i sed healing yourself costs to! And the difrence in costs, u beeing healed by some1 els or yourself is very very low. Have a wonderful day all, hope u like my post, and some of the hunters will think more about hiring a healer. I wanted to give a discription only of the economical part of healing for today. Tomorow i will add a reply whit the social part of healing that is also very important.
