Well DPS vs Heals is very stupid discussion imo.
When I heard someone say "that guy is bad at DPS but very good at healing" I immediately always thought "this guy has no clue".
Healers in Age of Conan are DPSers aswell, of course especially in premades is important to have Blue and Green Heals rubning up properly on all group members that need, but you can't play to focus heals. You have to DPS and Heals, and you do not need much skills to be good at healing.. so this pretty much answer anything.

And about builds.. Iron Hide well used is an extremely useful tool to get kills.. many forget this.
