What should the difference be between the space marine apothecary and the ork painboy. Both of them are going to fill in the same roles for their respective factions and both are going to be healers. My main worry here is that the painboy becomes a reskinned apothercary. So in light of these worries I thought up ways they could both be different. Apothercary : as seen in the game footage the apthercary has a passive AoE heal over time and a direct burst heal. I like this method the devs are doing it fits in with lore well enough and works from a gameplay stand point. Painboy: I imagine the pain boy having a similar AoE passive but instead of a heal a damage reduction and a attack sped buff. The painboys direct ability would also be a direct heal seeing as that is the class' entire purpose. The reason I think it should be a damage reduction and attack speed is that I personally and somewhat to lore imagine that a painboy's fighting juice is a bit like a large dosage of C17H21NO4 ( aka cocaine ) for an example of a large dosage of the chemical look at the end of scar face. It induces a enraged state of i cohesive though where the person is practically frothing at the mouth.
