Topic Healer Class Balance
So far healing has been very challenging, but I am enjoying it. I have healed all but one of the heroic dungeons and have started on some raid bosses. I like how challenging healing is, I enjoy using all my cooldowns and tricks to make it through the fight. I love how a 5 man dungeon feels like a mini raid.
What I don't like is the prejudice against some healer classes, mostly priests, in favor of other healing classes. I think blizzard put a lot of work into the cata healing model, and I think it has paid off in all but one area. Why is that when blizzard decided to make mana extremely tight, they gave paladins mana free heals? I am very upset by this. It goes against everything that blizzard has been preaching about concerning the new healing model.
I am working very hard, I have made it through many of the encountersm but at the end of the day, a random groups is still disappointed to see a priest as their healer! There have been posts about trade advertisements saying they are looking for a healer and priests need not bother applying. I have also seen posts from paladins saying that they are making it through the dungeons mostly be relying on their mana free heals. How is this ok?
I have worked very hard to make it through the cata content, I enjoy it! Please, please don't nerf the healing model all together, just look at the balance a bit. If we are all going to be mana tight, then please make sure it is actually ALL of us, and not just some of us. Cata is amazing so far, the dungeons are beautiful and I want to be able to keep enjoying them (as well as the new raids) and not be pushed aside by another class.
