Yeah this. Healers are integral to MMOs (assuming it has the holy trinity), in high demand, and generally respected. From the perspective of a MMO player, healing is not inferior to DPSing and honestly, probably more important since you generally don't do a lot of damage if dead. Assuming the game is properly balanced, which Asian MMOs are often not known for. Lastly, healing is often challenging.
