"Nope, never!" I said.
"Never in a million years." I said.
"Too stressful and I'd be horrible." I said

It is stressful at times, but GOD!!!! This is so fun!

Why was I so hard headed before?

Enhance? Pfft

Resto is where it's at!

HEAL ME

WTF HEAL ME

Healer didn't heal me!

IDC if I was in fire, a healer's job is to heal.

... I was in TWO fires?
I actually went into raids as a healer the first time because I figured that would be the easiest thing to do.

Its like whack-a-mole. The dps are the ones that always have to switch targets and pay close attention to what ability they use when, avoid stuff, interrupt things, etc. The mechanics they have to deal with always appeared more stressful to me. With healing I could do whatever I wanted so long as I avoid the AoE that everybody is meant to avoid.

6 years later, I'm still healing on the same character (though there have been a race change, and a faction change prior), and I still find ret more stressful.

This is why Cata was clearly the better expansion. Staghelm had a fire cleave, best of both worlds!
you must be one of the many healers that don't appear in BGs.....

Just wait.

You will become a cold, hard, serial killer eventually.

We all do.

"The fire. You're standing in it. Oh, you want a rez? Sorry, gotta take a leak. Brb"
I love it too, but after years of playing heals I am finally DPS :)
I really enjoy my resto spec as well. the thing I don't like is how you hit a wall and, at least with ~430~ gear, there is minimal regen. (No, not the gear I have on right now, this is my balance set.)

We used to have this thing called "Buttcleave".

"What do you mean I got cleaved!? I was standing behind him!!"

Truth.

Screw BG healing. "Y no healz??" "I'm dead you moron" "HALP HEELZ" "Get this rogue off me and I'll heal you, you fool" *dead*.

Screw it.

I'm sure. Still has the new heal smell to it.

Give me time, I'll start yelling.

It only happens rarely, but sure as shooting you'll one day get "that group".

Every healer knows what I'm talking about.

When that day comes, just remember that it doesn't matter - and that you were told before that one day you'd get "that group"... and that it was inevitable. We used to call it "healer abuse", until we took a stand against it. Now healers have a rep for being perhaps a little picky and sensitive, but that's only because we took a stand.

I suck at PvP with any class I've ever played. I honestly can't do it. I've done a few BGs and I can honestly say, Rogues keep me out of it. I hate how they can stun me for 5 minutes until I die.

I'm sure there's tons of ways I could avoid it, but I just stay clear of PvP.

Yelling is an early stage. That happens long before you just start quietly letting them die. And that comes a little while before you start enjoying watching them die.
LMAO! Sounds sinister.
I said the same thing from Vanilla all the way up to Cata - then I leveled a Priest, discovered Disc, and just loved it! Next came my Shaman and Druid and I fell in love!

It is like DPSing your raid group, but without the monotony of a set rotation.
