I play an SK. Recently, I've been duoing with a friend who is also an SK. Neither of us are raid-equiped, and have been doing the nest. My friend has a second account, and we were wondering what the best class to make and level to heal us would be. I've heard both defiler and fury, but I don't really know.

<p>I would go with an Inquisitor or Defiler (2nd choice but have great poison/disease debuffs)</p>

SKs heal pretty well themselves and can bounce aggro between them, so just throw more dps on there. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

I routinely play the Fury half of an SK / Fury duo.  It's a seriously killer combination. Solo and group emergency heals for when that lifetap isn't *quite* enough, quick heals and heals over time, highest DPS of all the healer classes for when the lifetaps are enough, and, as another poster pointed out, good group and single-target buffs and group invis after 45. If you're an SK / SK / Fury trio, one SK can gear up entirely for INT (the SK I play with will go so far as to put on cloth when he does this) and the other can go full defensive, and with the Fury... well, should be lots of fun. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

I have a level 70 wizard and he has a level 70 sk and we duo alot.

<p>dont mean to bump old topics but as far as the Defiler/SK goes hows the killing? is it fast or will it take forever.</p><p>reason i ask is because when my cousin and I duoed an inquisitor/guardian killing things was SO slow. so now that my fiance wants to play we are looking at a SK/Defiler ... i just hope its not as slow.</p>

SK/INQUIS I 2box these up to 63 with great success. The problem with the defiler is the Wards, they fall quick cause the plate gets hit alot. I also 2box a Defiler/Bruiser with great sucess as well.

<p>My vote is in SK/Fury, as i have mentioned many times, my trio of choice, (which i play on a regular basis) is SK, Trouby, Fury (fiance plays the fury, i play the SK and trouby)</p><p>I have to say the SK/Trouby/fury leveld faster than any of my other 70s i have (Conji and Templar as well) and as far as survivability is concerned, we have no issues whatsoever so far</p>

One issue with the SK is they need to get hit for full taunt effect and full dps effect. Defiler wards (and Coercer stuns...*grin* ) are counter-productive when it comes to the SK tanking and keeping aggro. Inquisitor yea, Warden as well.

Mine hits 556 INT with full xegonite devout armor with moonstone jewelry, INT drink (Bosprite's Wine, which has a 5h3m duration), and the Sombon Grubstake quested item from Loping Plains (Treasured with 30 INT and 110 Power...and...IT GLOWS!!!). Use one SK to tank, one to DPS, and a healer to heal.

It's *very* nice. . . .  Can't wait to start upgrading gear beyond Mastercrafted.

You have 2 Shadowknights, pick a third, can't go wrong with that. Yeah I'm biased. Jokes aside, if you can manage handling it, pick a necro and use his mage pet and his heals, you'll kill a lot faster.

Seems kinda dumb to gear out a tank for dps when there are already classes that do it much better...

While my brother's Sk is geared up well (which means depending on loot/quest rewards, things could get hairy sometimes say towards the end of a tier), we could take down white/yellow Heroics in rather good time. SK doing the damage, Defiler warding and debuffing. Defiler also adds a quite a bit of HPS, as well as some Mit and power, which helps the power hungry SKs. </p><p>The Defiler should go down the Str AA line as soon as possible I believe, and get the buff that goes on the pet that procs a deaggro buff for the Defiler. That helps a lot.</p>

<p>Inquisitor is a far better healer to have with a plate tank then a Fury imho.  However, the Fury will buff your SK's INT by quite a bit.</p><p>As a SK you need INT.  </p><p>Personally I'd go with the Fury, not based on the healing capability but on the buffs that come with it.</p>
