Why healer's OOM so fast.

Because you jump into heroic's without first getting your rep up to afford gear's.
You go in expectnig to heal in greens, no enchants or gems.
Your group doesnt use CC.
Your tank is probably in greens.
You're mind is still stuck on recount meters.
There is nothing wrong with the new mechanics of healing.
I never OOM...ever, so long as my group have their head's screwed on.
At the end of each fight Ive got plenty mana left.
So please, do not fight until Blizzard cave in because we might aswell go back to WOTLK easy mode.

I agree. I do not understand the mentality. So you wipe a couple of time when you first start doing heroics? Once you obtain the gear and DPS learns how to use CC the heroics will be much easier.

For the record though, I never got rep with anyone until after I started doing heroics.

OP,

You're absolutely right. There are a myriad of things that make up GROUP performance and healers need to realize that that same GROUP PERFORMANCE will determine the GROUP success.

I know my mana regen is fine and since I start heroics by telling dps and tanks whats up as far as CC and taking stupid damage, they go just fine.

So you didnt quest anywhere to get to 85?
Questing will get you to at least honored in that zones faction.

Gaining rep for gear is one of many things you need to do to prepare yourself for heroics.
Do your homework.

Liked! And your not on a pally so people can't attack you with that. If people would stop being lazy, healing would be alot easier for most.

You cant just jump into heroics without the proper GS. i.e. doing regulars first, or rep gaining.

Assuming people are going into heroics with quest greens is just not the case. Your argument is valid, aside from this point.

Why do healers and tanks have a gear requirement but not dps?

Let me rephrase. I did not get exalted with any reputation until I started running heroics. I am now exalted with hyjal (got really far into revered from quests), and almost exalted with the people in Uldum.

They do, kind of, it's just that when they don't meet it and you wipe because the healer is OOM due to the length of the fight we are blamed and not the DPS.

So while it may seem like they don't have one, they do, we just carry them.

They should and they still do, but people are not acting on it. This is why you see boss fights wipe at 10% HP. But of course everybody know the easier way out is to blame the healer's mana and get Bliz to do something instead of group kicking those under-performing dpsers.

"Heal" sucks. sorry. it's a bad spell to cast. I will not use it. it's 900 some mana, casts over 2 seconds, and only heals for 6k. in 2 seconds, see how much a tank gets hit for in a heroic and then come back and tell me if this spell is useful at all.

For those of you who are being told to use this spell, please do not listen. You will wipe. Stick to your current mechanics of flash / greaters / prayer of mending / renew etc.

Also, throw bubble out as well if you're holy. What a joke.


Well if that works for you fine. You seem to have done a lot of heroics and know what you're talking about... Oh wait.

I am so tired of this holy pally hate. I heal fine on this toon, My Disc priest, and my resto druid. I can't speak for Shamans, but I can say, Priests and druids are fine as well. Every healing class has different mechanics, sure one is easier than the other, but it doesn't mean the other less easier healing classes are hard to heal with. people just need to learn to play their class correctly and efficiently then they won't have issues. The only common issue with healers right now that needs to be addressed is scaling.

But, to the op. I agree.

WRONG.... what is your arguement for people who actually know how to play, have all blues/gems/chants and are geared for heroics but still find it absolutly miserable?
