"What's that blue circle?"

I hit 83 yesterday on my Resto Shaman and hit up the LFD with a tank friend of mine, looking for gear. Healing Rain might just be the funniest thing ever. Some people panicked and tried to run away. Others asked if it was part of the boss mechanic (this despite the fact that I had been casting it since the beginning of the instance to field test it). I had a DK that would jump to just outside the graphic as though it were Infest. My friend and I nearly died laughing.

Lol, I love when people run from the green circle. Scaring people is a highlight in dungeons.

I'll join that club.

PoH chakra holy word looks the same but is white and don't even get me started on lightwell. Though, it could be an omen of good change that DPS are starting to realize their surroundings and to get out of anything that wasn't there before. Maybe they're thinking "no matter what it is, if it pops near me and wasn't there when we started the encounter it's better to just get out of it." Which is why I say "If it's black and hurts get out of it. If it's white, it's mine and stand in it." Seems to be working... somewhat.

In the Vortex Pinnacle, tank and melee dps does their best to kite the trash dragon out of the green circle of it's own healing rain, that's fine.. And then they kited the dragon out of -my- healing rain... on every single trash dragon that does this.. even after I pointed out "that's mine, you just moved out of your heals" every single time.

I'm guessing they're colourblind ?

Well they've been trained in the art of not standing in stuff on the floor. Now we want the to step in only certain stuff on the floor. This is just too confusing blizzard, my years of training have taught me not to love the blue stuff.

To the contrary, the first time I ran it, I had a party fighting high prophet barim in lost city who thought Hallowed Ground was a friendly spell and sat in it the entire time. I would have yelled at them to move if I wasn't busy trying to keep the tank from dying. I was oom halfway through and somehow managed to delay deaths long enough with HL, HS, and WoG that we downed the boss...with the last living person (dps) at 10% health 0.o

Next time I did it, it was a dungeon in progress and they'd wiped on that boss. Turns out they'd wiped because they did the same thing and blamed the healer. I told them to stay the heck out of it pre-fight and things went fine. I seriously don't think dps and tanks know the difference between green numbers and red numbers.

..was tanking Stonecore for the first time yesterday. I thought Healing Rain was a mob ability and moved out of it, and continued to do so. I wasn't corrected at all. I even asked "is the blue stuff something I need to be worried about?" The only response was "Nope."

Great! I didn't figure out what it was until the shaman started talking about how cool he thought it was.
