    As far as I know they're the only one who can heal others.

    The other classes some of them have runes on skills that give life back.

    How does a heal make a class OP?

    Diablo pvp is so not about healing & potion spamming....
    An Apple fanboy called me a retard.
    In the real world that makes me a genius.

    Make sure you let go of the idea that healing is very important. Diablo III has more varied forms of healing, through runes or abilities, than it used to have in DII, but healing is not a core element of the game. Not dying is a core element of the game and this can also be achieved by just killing very rapidly, generally CCing things, kiting and nuking.

    There is no holy trintiy. There is no tank, albeit characters can choose to be a meatshield by being the closest target and there are no dedicated group healers.

    D3 is at it's bare basic stripped down to nothing form about.. survival. If you don't survive, it's game over. To survive you can

    a) Heal (Monk/choosing runes)
    b) Mitigate damage (Barbarian/defensive cooldowns)
    c) Avoid damage (Kiting/ranged)
    d) Zerg stuff so quick it doesn't get many hits off (potentially any class)

    Whilst the monk is the only class that can heal other people, plenty of runes add a life leeching ability - you can also get life leech on weapons returning health.

    For many, survival builds aren't the way to go anyway, zerg builds will be - if you kill stuff quick, you don't need to heal, and you get loot and exp more efficiently.

    Some people may not even choose the heal abilities on the monk, instead choosing to go for a higher DPS build.

    What is potion delay? I've popped a few potions in beta and haven't noticed a delay. Are you talking about the cooldown? I've messed around with monk and their Breath of heaven has a cooldown too. I agree with what's been said by others though on why healing spells don't make monks op. Every class has their perks, and they don't need healing spells to be balanced.
