Do any other healers not like healing 25 man?

I can't stand healing 25's because of how spammy and disconnected it feels. In 10s, when health bars are rising, I know I'm the cause.

In 25's, I just mash my buttons and things get healed by someone, somehow, somewhere.

Nope, I enjoy healing 25s very much.

I like 25m for a variety of reasons but the main 2 would be:

1) It's more chaotic, just a lot more going on-- a lot more people to keep watch of
2) I get to be close to a lot of healers, not just 1 or 2 others. We have our own chat channel and even those who are sitting talk in it. It's enjoyably social. I get more perspective on healing classes I don't play

I did a lot of heroic 10man raiding on alts and offnights in Cata and felt nothing but zzzzz the entire time. It was mega boring with the exception of Heroic Cho'gall to the point where I couldn't figure out why anyone found 10mans challenging in the slightest. I never got a "greater sense of responsibility" from raiding 10man, in fact I felt pretty useless because I played with competent players who didn't stand in bad !@#$ and thus the need to heal dropped drastically. I probably DPS'd more than I healed in a lot of those runs.

10mans are just one giant snoozefest for the most part.

On the other hand, this expansion has brought back severe underhealing of 25man content. First tier had a lot of fights that we 3 healed, and this tier has had a few of those as well. 3-4 healing heroic 25man content is the most fun I've had in this game since probably Black Temple. It requires a lot of work, concentration, and you feel amazing when you successfully accomplish it. I never got that experience in 10.

Its called solo healing the content, which is rather fun tbh.

I personally greatly prefer 10s. To me, it feels more tight knit and personal. It feels like you're contributing more and have a greater impact. I also just plain don't like having that many people around.


this. i switched to 10 man raiding in late wrath and i have been pretty happy with it since then.

i like healing in 25 mans but i no longer have the patience for wrangling with and listening to that many people. the more people there are, the more chance there is for people i don't like. :P

YEah but it's not often that one can do that. With a 25m people are more willing to sit out, swap to dps. In 10m the roster is more tight-nit and short. Telling not only 1, but 2 healers to sit for the night really blows for those other people.

It's a lot easier to ask 2 of your 5 healers to bring a geared alt or go DPS/Tank.

That being said, I also really enjoy 10m.

I just like healing tbh.

Heresy!

Yeah, each size has its own characteristics, and I can enjoy both!

Dunno how people stay awake healing 25m ;(

So boring.... I'd have to stay awake though so I could call out the list of 40,000 raid-wide cooldowns we have in order so people don't blow them at the wrong moments. Give me 2 ele shaman, a warrior or 2, some pallies, some priests.... man I'd have more fun prepping for raid doing the math on the fights to call out cooldowns than actually healing it... lol

Iron Juggernaut must be the most hilarious fight for 25m, just use like 14 raid cooldowns during the siege mode all back to back...

I definitely prefer 10m.

Differences that make me favor 10m or 25:
In 10m, you can balance your proactive and reactive based on your mana and the encounter. In 25m, it's really easy to fall into the trap of feeling like you have to do everything proactively and snipe to make it look like you're doing your job.

10m, you can get a better sense of what your cohealer(s) will do, because there's only 1-2 of them, and you learn to heal around each other. In 25, you can still kind of get a feel for how strong each of your cohealers is and how they're going to impact the healing you can do, but most of the time, that doesn't seem to impact my own healing strategy.

I prefer 10m social interactions, too.

But in 25m, you get to make Mist cry sweet, sweet mistweaver tears.
That makes it all worth it, doesn't it?

It's funny, cuz you tested that with us and you know damn well that doesn't work. :)

I mean unless we stacked Shaman or something.

As someone whose AoE is tied to groups, 25 mans are exceptionally harder than 10 mans for this reason. I can understand other classes might feel different, however.

I don't like 25m. At all. I think my biggest issue, is more healers - more sniping eachother - more people healing the same target. I feel responsible for EVERYONE in the raid, and I just run myself OOM. In 10m I can rejuv everyone without mana issues, and now with genesis that's so fun. But in 25m? I'm hopeless lol....

No, I don't like 25m at all. I like the control I have in 10m and the feeling that I'm making a difference. A healer can drop and I can pick up the slack for at least a while because I GOT this /flex

Then you're overhealing your 25 man.

Losing a healer while underhealing is a serious issue. I feel like I'm making a difference every time I save someone (and I save people regularly).

I wish we cut healers more often, but I also don't want to see people get sat :/

WTB more offspec dpsers.

I get what you're saying OP. I personally just prefer 10M myself. Less people, which gives you more room to chat and get to know people, also LFR has left a bitter taste in my mouth as far as 25M is concerned.
