Just curious if anyone out there has been able to do this yet, I consider myself a pretty decent healer and can't get pass wave 5, Not sure if it's over tuned or what, Thanks!

I can't wait to try it. I'm at work so I cant. Tediz, what is your issue at wave 5? are you going oom or are you not able to heal fast enough?

I did it first try without dropping below 70% mana and very little use of cooldowns, I honestly thought it was severely under tuned.

Doing the DPS this is actually challenging! So far I've gotten to wave 6 Endless... Dayum this is gonna suck up a lot of my time.

Dunno about heals though, good luck.

Was pretty easy for me. Though I did have trouble with the DoT mechanic as at first I didn't know you could heal them to full and get rid of it. Wasted a lot of mana.

Some healers have reached 85 or so on the ptr. Gear is scaled back but sockets are not. Gem wisely my friend.

The time for healers doesn't matter, you're done when the mobs are all dead.

You can also get to them by talking to your class trainer.

The achievement will not show up till you re-log. I have the gold in dps and it is not listed. Please do not say others are trolling cuz you do not understand how the system works.

The armory hasn't been updated which is why players appear to have empty gear slots (for instance my hands, which are tier 16). I do have the achievement however the achievement doesn't exist on the armory.

I did Gold but couldn't get past wave 7 or so on endless. My mana can't keep up.

I didn't (and probably won't) change my gear just for proving grounds, but I'm hoping I can pull off wave 10 eventually.

Does anyone know if there are other difficulties than 'Basic'? Because everything is labeled as Basic.

I think it's probably a little easier for less-geared players. For example, at higher gear levels, as a disc priest, I gear away from mastery/spirit and into haste. With the ilevel scaling, this doesn't bode well for my mana. I have made some initial changes, but I need to do a little more to get gold. 8/10 waves down, though.
