You think we will ever see a dual wielding healing class?I thought monks could have been like that since they stay in melee range for a lot of fights.Or would that be OP?

Shaman were a dual wielding healer for a while, then they nerf'd it so no caster weapon can be an offhand thus forever ending dual wield healing. Blizzard hates fun.

The issue is then they'd have to put spellpower on offhands as well. And probably nerf the spellpower on each weapon.

OR they'd have to make specific weapons specifically for that class that can't be used by another healer.

OR they'd have to make said dual wield healer scale incredibly badly with spellpower to counteract the fact that they double dip.

OR they'd have to just make spellpower on a weapon unique. (as in only get the bonus from the main hand)

Pretty much every way you go about it it's a lot of work for minimal benefit.

They can't. Blizz hotfixed it last expac so they can't gain spellpower from sources outside attack power.

They could balance any class around using 2 caster weapons, but then I'm sure you'd hate having to get them. :P
