Alright, so by popular demand (or, because I saw two people on my Elementalist
post comment about one), I decided to make a Physician class. I imagine that they would be cloth wearers, but maybe leather could be an option? I can't say that I could see them wearing anything heavier than leather though. So many words!
To those who care, the Elementalist post (linked above) has been updated with its other two specs...but no one probably cares T_TTable of ContentsGeneralSpecsPetsTalentsSkip to Comments ->Race Distribution
- For Sure: Human, Gnome,
Orc, Undead, Troll, Goblin
- Maybe: Blood Elf, Dwarf, Worgen
- Probably Not: Pandaren, Night Elf, Draenei, Tauren, Orc
The Physician is all about healing with medicine and bandages (not like First Aid bandages mind you), and has little "magic" to aid in healing. As such, any race that has no access to Druid magic seems a natural candidate for this class (Gnomes
, Blood Elves
, and Goblins
). In the case of the Worgen
, well, they used to be human, so they likely have the skills preserved in some way.Trolls
have access to Druid magic, but I still feel like they could have the skills for this class. Night Elves
both seem to be races that wouldn't be very quick to accept this "unnatural" healing and rely on natural healing from Druidic magic or probably Holy Light. Pandaren
likely have their own way of healing in their unique culture (see Monks), while the Draenei have their heads too far up the Naaru's...crystal depositories to have anything to do with such a non-spiritual healing.Back to the top ->Weapons
Bow (primarily for Allergist and Pharmacist)
Gun (primarily for Allergist and Pharmacist)
Sword (1h, 2h)
Mace (1h, 2h)
The Medic is a melee healing class, with many heals requiring you to be close to your targets. Uses mana as a resource.Back to the top ->Leaps
Range: 10-40 yards.
Back to the medic ->Direct Heals
- Hippocratic Leap: You leap to the target, instantly healing them for x and decreasing their damage taken by 50% for 3 sec. The next heal the target receives within 10 sec is increased by 25%. Adds one stack of Fatigue to you. Fatigue lasts for 20 sec and stacks up to three times. One stack of Fatigue falls off every 20 sec, ie gaining another stack doesn't refresh the original stack(s) duration(s). When you reach 3 stacks of Fatigue, you gain the Worn Out debuff, preventing any leaps for 25 sec. While Worn Out, you gain the Panicked buff, increasing movement speed while in combat by 70% for the 25 sec and reducing your chance to be hit by 20%, but increases damage taken by 20%.
- Startling Leap: You leap in front of the target, removing any fear, sleep, or charm effects, and preventing them from occurring again for 5 sec. 30 sec cooldown. Adds one stack of Fatigue, but your next Hippocratic Leap ignores any Worn Out debuff you may have and does not add a stack of Fatigue. Can be cast on dead targets.
- Momentum Leap: You leap to the target, transferring 50% of your movement speed to them for 3 sec. Your next heal cast on them within 10 sec heals you for 50% of the healing. Adds one stack of Fatigue. Can be cast on dead targets.
- Smash Leap: You leap to the target, smashing into the ground. The impact stuns all targets within 8 yards for 2 sec and heals all targets within 20 yards for x, and an additional y damage over 10 sec. 1 min cooldown.
- Quickened Leap: You leap around for 7.5 sec, leaping to a new target every 1.5 sec, hitting a total of 6 targets. Each leap heals the target for x and reduces damage taken by 25% for 6 sec. Prioritizes lower health targets. If the lowest health target is the last target leaped to, you will not leap for the next tic, but instead bandage the target, instantly healing them for the same x amount, plus an additional 30% over 6 sec. Causes 3 stacks of Fatigue; only useable if you have 1 or fewer stacks of Fatigue. 1.5 min cooldown.
Range: 15 yards.
- Bandage: Fast, expensive heal. Channeled; mana cost and healing divided between 10 ticks for the cast time.
- Stitch: Slow, moderate heal. Channeled; mana cost and healing divided between 8 ticks for the cast time.
- Full Body Cast: Slow, massive heal. Channeled; mana cost and healing divided between 8 ticks for the cast time.
Range: 15 yards.
- Pain Pill: Reduces damage taken by 15% for 20 sec. Stacks up to two times. When at two stacks, the damage reduction is a total of 50%, but the target gains the Dizzy debuff, preventing them from being the target of Pain Pill or Morphine Shot for 40 sec.
- Morphine Shot: Administers pain medication directly into the blood stream, reducing damage by 10% and an additional 10% each second for 5 sec, staking up to 6 times (initial 10%, plus another 10% for the 5 sec channel time). Lasts 15 sec, causing Dizziness for 30 sec. 1.5 min cooldown.
Back to the medic ->Misc
- Thighs of Steel: Every Leap made by you has an x% chance to not cause Fatigue. Additionally, upon hitting 3 stacks of Fatigue, you are blessed with Final Leap, allowing the next Leap made within 25 sec to ignore being Worn Out. There is a .33*x% chance that this Leap will not consume Final Leap.
Range: 15 yards (unless otherwise specified).
- Caffeine Shot: Awakens Stunned targets. 45 sec cooldown.
- Anti-biotic: Removes one disease and one magic effect from the target.
- Surgeon's Warning: Reduces the damage and healing caused by the target by 60% for 5 sec, but reduces their threat level to 0 for 5 sec. No additional threat is caused for 5 sec, but when the 5 sec is over, the damage and healing reduction fades and all original threat is returned over 10 sec. 1.5 min cooldown. 40 yard range.
- Emergency Surgery: You perform surgery on the target, healing them for 100% of their health over 6 sec and an additional 50% over 25 sec. Cannot be cast on self. Channeled for 6 sec. While channeling, you and your target have 0 threat and cannot be targeted by attacks. When completed, you and your target instantly regain all threat, increased by 20%. The target's armor is reduced by 15% for 25 sec while your healing is reduced by 15% for 15 sec. 6 min cooldown.
- Defibrillate: Shocks the target, returning them to life at 15% health and mana. Healing cast on the target is increased by 50% for 10 sec and all threat caused by healing during this time is transferred to the target at a 100% increased rate. Castable while in combat.
- CPR: Resurrection.
- War Training: Meditation.
- Swift Healing: Increases your haste and healing by 30% of any movement speed increases you are under.
- Preparation: Every Leap gives you a stack of Preparation, reducing the channel time and mana cost of your next direct healing spell by 25%. Stacks up to 5 times.
- Low on Time: All direct heals can be cast while moving, but their channel times and mana costs are increased by 25% and their healing is decreased by 30% when moving. Standard times, costs, and healing when standing in place. Spells are interrupted when the Medic moves out of range of the target. Does not affect spells made instant by Preparation.
I was immediately swept away with this spec. Not only is this healing spec suited for on the run healing, but it's arguable that this spec EXCELS in it, doing its best when you are moving. It has a unique playstyle and could prove to be the best healing class in situations where it's dangerous for you to stand in one place. However, miscalculations can prove to be deadly if you waste your leaps and can't get to a player in time to heal them.Back to the medic ->Ranger
The Ranger is similar to the Feral Druid in the sense that there are two different specs within this spec: Pharmacist and Allergist. Pharmacists are a second healing spec while the Allergist is a dps spec. Both use mana as a resource.
I'd originally wanted to include the Pharmacist as a spec, but after making the Allergist, I decided that the allergist is too cool of a spec to allow a fourth spec to take its thunder. It is in the spoiler if you want to see what it would've been, but I don't care so much for it, so I nixed it.Pharmacist
The Pharmacists focuses on using instant-cast spells to prevent damage, as well as gases and poison spills to prevent enemies from causing as much damage. They can also cause powerful effects from casting certain combinations of pills, but are capable of casting effective bandages when the time calls for it.Back to the top ->Direct Heals
Same as the Medic, only they are actually cast rather than channeled and have a 40 yard range.
- Bandage: Fast, expensive heal.
- Stitch: Slow, moderate heal.
- Full Body Cast: Slow, massive heal.
Back to the pharmacist ->Supplements
- HCl Spill: Spills Acid around the targets area, reducing the speed of all enemies within it by 40% and causes x damage every sec while standing in the acid. Lasts 30 sec. 20 sec cooldown.
- Lead Exposure: All enemies within 10 yards of the target gain Lead Exposure, reducing attack speed by 20% and damage dealt by 10% for as long as the original target has the Lead Beacon buff. The Beacon buff itself simply spreads the exposure to nearby targets.
- Poison Coating: Coats the target with poison, causing melee attacks made against the target to cause x damage over 6 sec to the target and reducing damage caused by 15% for 6 sec. DoT aspect of the spell is stackable. Threat caused by this damage is transferred to the target with the coating (however, for all other intents and purposes, the damage is considered to have been done by you). Only one Poison Coating can be active per Pharmacist at a time. Poison Coating lasts 30 sec.
- Hallucinogenic Cloud: Creates a cloud of Hallucinogens around the target, causing all threat caused to other targets within 15 yards of the original target for 10 sec to be transferred to the original target. While hallucinating, attack and casting speed is reduced by 50%. Original target is unaffected. 1.5 min cooldown.
All supplements can be cast on enemies, but their effects are reduced by 50%.
- Testosterone Supplement: If cast on a male, attack and casting speed and damage caused is increased by 15%, but 1% of all damage caused is reflected back to the target. If cast on a female, she will become Oddly Masculine, reducing all threat caused by 50% and reducing casting and attack speed by 30% and reducing damage caused by 10%. Lasts 1 min. 15 sec cooldown. +S.
- Estrogen Supplement: If cast on a female, all threat caused is increased by 25% while chance to dodge is increased by 10% and damage received is decreased by 10%. If cast on a male, he will become Oddly Feminie (not that there's anything wrong with that), reducing damage caused by 20%, chance to hit by 5% and increasing chance to dodge and damage received by 15%. Lasts 1 min. 15 sec cooldown. -S.
- Potassium Supplement: Increases melee damage and casting time by 10%. While under the effect of this, the target is swarmed with mosquitoes, causing .2% damage every second for it's duration. Stacks up to 3 times. Lasts 1 min. +K.
- Sodium Supplement: Reduces casting time and melee damage by 10%. While under the effect of this, every sec, the target's blood pressure has a 1% chance to surge, interrupting spell casting for 1 sec. Interrupting in this way may only happen once every 5 sec. Stacks up to 3 times. Lasts 1 min. -K.
- Mercury Supplement: Decreases chance to hit by 5% but reduces spell damage taken by 10% for 20 sec. Stacks up to 3 times. Upon the third stack, the target is afflicted with Hydrargyria (mercury poisoning), increasing damage taken by 50% and causing 5% damage every sec for 15 sec. After 15 sec, the target returns to two stacks of Mercury Suppliment for it's full duration of 20 sec. +H.
- Selenium Supplement: Causes the target to become irritable, reducing damage taken by 10% and increasing damage caused by 5% for 20 sec. While irritable, the target receives 25% less healing and 5% of all damage caused is reflected back to the irritated target. Stacks up to 3 times. Upon the third stack, the target is afflicted with Pulmonary Edema, which reduces casting speed by 50% and each spell cast causes 6% damage to the caster. Lasts 15 sec. After 15 sec, the target returns to 2 stacks of Irritated at it's full duration of 20 sec. -H.

- Placebo: Increases max health by 3%, stacking up to 6 times. Lasts 10 sec. -1.
The Pharmacist has a lot of pills, but many of them are situational. The + or - number at the end of each applies on the target it was cast onto. Causing a target to have a number that is not 0 causes an imbalance. The number is visible as a red debuff on the target, but has no effect on the target other than helping you keep track of the target's combo number. The target has a max and min of 6 and -6 which is reached with pills. The supplements are each in pairs, and these pairs have their own unrelated debuff counters.
- Negative Combo (going negative 1-5 to 0): Instantly heals x, increased by the counter number returned from.
- Negative 6 Combo: Heals x instantly and .5*x over 6 sec.
- Positive Combo (going positive 1-5 to 0): Heals x over 20 sec, increased by the counter number returning from.
- Positive 6 Combo: Heals x over 20 sec, and .5*x instantly.

- S- Combo (going +S to 0 on females or -S to 0 on males): Reduces all threat caused by 50%, casting and attack speed by 30%, all damage caused by 20%, chance to hit by 5% and increases chance to dodge and damage received by 15%. Lasts 20 sec.
- K+ Combo (going +(1-3)K to 0): Increases melee damage caused by 15% per point returning from. Lasts 20 sec.
- K- Combo (going -(1-3)K to 0): Decreases casting speed by 15% per point returning from. Lasts 20 sec.

- H- Combo (going -(1-2)H to 0): Reduces damage taken by 15% and increases damage caused by 10% per point returning from. Lasts 20 sec.
- Deadly Combo (Causing Pulmonary Edema while under the affect of Hydrargyria, or vice versa): Heals all raid members within 20 yards of the target for 15% health. The target is cleared of all debuffs caused by pills and supplements.

- Dissolving Tablets: Your auto-attack can be cast on allies. When it is, you through dissolving tablets to them, healing them for 50% weapon damage each hit. Every Tablet has a 10% chance of granting you a pill.
Although I nixed this class, the idea was to give great buffs to the team and consume them with combos when healing is necessary (of course direct heals can always be used instead). In fact, if a raid doesn't need the dps or healing, a Pharmacist would fill a very unique role in that you would ONLY spread buffs to your most important party member that could actually prove to give a higher dps increase than it you were actually dpsing as an Allergist or Chiropractor anyway. Regardless, this is an unstable spec and would need balanced to prove to be effective.Back to the pharmacist ->Allergist
Allergists focus on DoT's to take down foes with their own immune systems.Back to the top ->DoT's
- Hay Fever: Causes Hay Fever on the target, dealing x damage every 2 sec over 16 sec. Hay Fever is contagious, causing all targets within 15 yards to have a 10% chance to catch it.

- Influenza: Infects the target with the Flu, dealing x damage every 2 sec over 12 sec. Each tic has a 10% chance of causing the target to vomit, stunning them for 1 sec and causing that tic to deal an additional 200% damage. Vomiting has a 9 sec cooldown. The Flu has a 30% contagion rate to all targets within 15 yards. Vomitting increases the contagion rate to 80% for 4 sec and refreshes the duration of the Flu on the vomiting target.
- Ebola: Causes the target to bleed x damage over 15 sec (1 tic every 3 sec) and increases the damage of all diseases on the target by 15% for its duration. Ebola has a 50% contagion rate for all targets within 15 yards. 2 sec cast.
- Common Cold: Gives the target a cold, giving the target a 5% chance per sec to sneeze, interrupting the current spell cast and causing a lockout of that school of magic for 3 sec. Sneezing has a 6 sec cooldown. Lasts 12 sec. The Cold has a 5% contagion rate to all enemies within 15 yards. Contagion rate increases to 80% for 1 sec when the target sneezes. Some restrictions apply.
- Black Plague: Causes the target suffer the plague, dealing x damage every 2 sec until the target dies. When the target dies, its corpse becomes a breeding ground for diseases, causing all enemies within 15 yards of the corpse to have an 80% chance to catch the diseases the corpse had when it died. The contagion rate is calculated separately for each disease for each target at a rate of once every 2 sec. All diseases spread this way have the full duration of the original disease. The contagion rate of the Black Plague is 10% while alive, but 50% when dead. 3 sec cast. 30 sec cooldown.

After 6 sec, the clots explode, dealing all the damage the wounds would have caused during that time instantly with a 50% increase. After exploding, the bleeding effects resume from where they had been paused. 30 sec cooldown.
- Jagged Needles: All shots cause the target to bleed over 15 sec for x*mastery damage. Additionally, all shots and abilities have an x% to cause an infected would, causing the target to take increased bleed and disease damage for 20 sec.

The Allergist is similar to the Warlock, only with less control as the contagion rate is spotty at best; however, with investment in Critical Rating, the rate increases, and in turn, it offers you more stable disease spreading and you can focus on dealing bleed and burst damage with your shots.Back to the allergist ->Chiropractor
The chiropractor is similar to the Windwalker Monk in the sense that their attacks and abilities do not use weapons. Most of your abilities focus around hitting pressure points and weakening the target's body. Uses rage and knowledge as resources.Back to the top ->Hits
Hits generate knowledge and generally do weak damage for debuffs. These debuffs are situational and do not have a particularly cohesive necessity to the spec's performance aside from generating knowledge. All hits generate .5 knowledge (1.5 when the damage crits) for a maximum of 5 knowledge. All excess knowledge enrages you, increasing your damage caused by 5% per point of overage, up to a 25% increase. These abilities cost rage.
- Rib Hit: Punches the user in the rib, causing x damage and increasing the user's cast time by 50% for 8 sec. Cast time reduction has a 30 sec cooldown.
- Concussive Hit: Smack the target's head, dealing x damage and causing a concussion that lasts for 20 sec. With a concussion, the target has a 5% reduction in hit chance, 10% in cast and attack speed, but a 10% increase in healing received. 30 sec cooldown.

Until the target receives a heal of some sort, their movement speed is reduced by 60% and they will continue receiving the periodic damage. All rooting spells made against the target while their knee is broken will have a 20% increase in duration.
- Spine Hit: Jabs the target's spine, dealing x damage and rupturing a disc, interrupting spell casting for 3 sec. 15 sec cooldown. Must be behind the target.

- Final Jab: Hit's the target's final chakra, dealing x damage and causing their spirit to split into five shards, each stabbing into a nearby enemy, dealing x damage. Over 3 sec, another x damage is dealt to all affected targets as the spirit rips out of their body back to the original target. Each shard deals x damage to the original target over 3 sec as they re-enter the body. For this 3 sec, the original target's damage is reduced by 30% and their damage taken is increased by 40%. Only usable within 3 sec of finishing Chakra Jab.

Conversely, all abilities that use knowledge have an x% change of causing the next knowledge using ability to cost 0 knowledge. Both effects are represented with different buffs and stack up to 3 times each. Insurance lasts for 1.5 min and is refreshed with all additional procs.

For the Chiropractor, you are given the opportunity to deal a lot of damage, a lot of which is through your passives; or, you could be a utilitarian, focusing on balancing knowledge and rage. Effective management of your resources and a long-sighted outlook are necessary to be effective at dealing massive damage in this spec.Back to the chiropractor ->Pets
Two words: Humanoid. Pets. Say you have a place like Moonglade, let's call it "Better Future Hospital", and this acts as the Moonglade of Physicians. In this hospital, which is a maze of halls and rooms with patients, there are hundreds of NPC's of all races that are rushing around giving care to the patients. Well, this is where the "pets" would come from. The reason I bring this up is because I'm sure a lot of people would be like "THAT'S SLAVERY AND IT'S WRONG AND I HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO THAN HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THIS!" But you see, they aren't slaves. They work for the hospital and travel between there and the Physician to do work wherever they are needed.
Now, from here, I figure there are two options: be able to "tame" pets (npc humanoids only) the way Hunters do, or have them be "summons" like the Warlock. For the prior, which of the four types of pets it becomes will be determined by the target's class and their actual race. Tamable humanoids would be any NPC of the same race as a playable Physician, Gnolls, Murlocs, Pygmies, Broken Ones, Ravens, and Kabolds (maybe more).Types of PetsBack to the top ->Nurse

Damage taken by the Psychotherapist is increased by 50-150% for 10 sec, starting with a 50% increase in damage taken then gradually increasing to 150%.

As far as the lore goes, it makes sense to have a healing class that doesn't focus purely on magic; I mean, not all human-er-oids are born with magical capabilities, and in times of war, It would be understandable that a Medic class would be needed so that they would have enough healing for those who are being injured. The physician would be the class that exploits this necessity to become a very effective healer.
