Not sure what the best dps is.... possibly necromancer but I don't think they're done nerfing them yet lol.
Theres content that a designed for 4 person groups (dungeons) and content that's designed for 12 person groups (trials). Trials you probably do need dedicated healers, dungeons a lot of people don't worry about healers and just try and heal themselves.
Any magic class can heal ok. If you want to make a magic dk damage dealer you will still be able to heal most dungeons just by switching some skills around.
Templars are pretty fun and very good as both healers and damage dealers.
Self heals on all members, you can roll thru base/basic content all day. Vet content and 12mans, often almost require a full time healer, or everyone rocking a self heal.. Or just 1 person off-heals ontop of people aoe buff heals etc can work.
So if your rocking the game with a friend, your set... to be fair. With swap weapons, A templer can run full dps, drop heals from back bar and be fine. Or just keep one heal on main bar.
Other classes can do same if your just playing with one friend, Some can cheese it abit better.
Most classes have a heal of some sorts,
You can go flashy with Sorc, and have enough magic and spell power buffed up, heals will do good even from back bar useage. (not mention you get pet heal to)
