Healing is awesome. Anyone agree?
I don't know about you but I'm not blamed for wipes. The people who stood in the fire always take the blame and understand. Other people are helping with dispels to save my mana. Offheals from people.. everything.. I love all members of the party doing everything they can.
How anyone would want to go back to AoE tanking and AoE damage snoozefest is beyond me.
Since then, healing is a blast. Once you realize that all 5 people need to be involved in avoidance and/or damage reduction and can vocalize that, healing feels like something you've accomplished.
I healed a heroic GB last night with all guildies (that helps, too, btw). On the last boss, near the END of the fight, i had to drop a mana tide for the caster dps, not me. I was at 90% mana and everyone was at 80% or above hp. That's not tooting my own horn. That's a nod to all 5 of us doing things right.
good to be heals right now.
LFG can be painful sometimes. No CC much, standing in the fire, healer will just heal..you know wotlk mentality can be a serious pain.
Let them enjoy their 45 min queues, they will learn or quest...
There was a time when to be a healer and if people knew you were good, you would get sought out to heal heroics, guild invites whatever and Wrath killed that with healers being a dime a dozen and that many could achieve success because it was faceroll. It will be nice to be able to stand out in the crowd again for skill.
I have yet to be blamed for any wipe in the heroics I've done, people have actually put the blame on the right aspect: not following the mechanics of the fight, dps standing in stupid crap, not killing the boss fast enough, etc.
So as someone that has been a healer since BC launch, very happy with the healing model right now and I hope it doesn't get nerfed to all hell because people who just aren't made to be healers are pissing and moaning about it.
