Small reply to your P.S the only class that quite honestly only option is to just heal and win the long game is the defiler. Cuz unless someone lets themselves be killed by blight defilers legit have basically 0 dps. Minstrels on the other hand in WS have ALOT of damage at their disposal. I have seen minstrels beat high ranked creeps 1v1 with no/minimal heals. There was a mini on my sever I 1v1ed, and by the time I did him 12k damage he'd already done me 16k because he got some nice crits and did a good job kiting/fearing. I would guess the spam healing creeps "cry about" is when they do a minstrel over 70k damage and he is at full while they have taken like 13k in the same period. Which has also happened to me several times. Minstrels definitely have the option to focus more on damage and less on heals. Spam healing is a definite choice not unavoidable for them. Same for warleaders vs most classes. I use my warleader for 1v1s alot and I limit my heals. sometimes I don't heal at all. with shield bash and some good crits warleader dps is not bad.. definitely not good, but not terrible like defiler is. So to disagree with you on that point.. 2 of the 3 healing classes you mentioned can do something other then just spam heal) now to disagree with your 2nd point. while I agree a good minstrel who spam heals losing to a creep is basically impossible. a defiler or warleader losing to a good freep dpser is not impossible and on my server actually quite common. especially Warleader, I have seen rks, burgs, champs, wardens, and loremasters just destroy them. And I seen rks, burgs, wardens and champs beat high ranked defilers too. though much less often then warleader.
