Alrighty Blizzard, time for some real talk. I hope I'm allowed to put blizz in the header, if not let me know and I'll remove it, just thought it might get your attention
Now I have a disc priest at lvl 85 and my guild now has 3 cata raid bosses down after 1 day of trying. We will most likely down more after maintenance.
From reading these forums youd no doubt get the idea that healing is hard for druids and disc priests. This is true. Healing is difficult for all classes, you made it this way AND I THANK YOU.
How to heal a heroic:
Have DPS CC at every possible occasion. Have a geared tank who knows how to use cooldown and move . Keep everyone as low as you can without putting them in jeopardy, I have found this to be 60-70% so if they are cleaved or take spike damage I can hit em for a 5-10k heal or two and get them back to this level.
I had a resto druid complaining in my guild that resto druids couldnt heal so I said ill go shadow and you come heal a random heroic. You know what he did? Tried to top us off, spammed heals when we were topped off, didnt rotate cooldowns and even with a group of competent DPS and tank he wiped us a few times until I woke him up and taught him how to heal. Once I did, we didn't wipe again.
You see Blizzard, druids and fellow disc priests are complaining here because they DONT KNOW HOW TO HEAL. You know, from your alpha/beta testers that healing is possible. They are making it sound like it's impossible but don't forget your testers did it, I can do it, the druid in my guild can do it.
So my request is to PLEASE not change these classes or healing in general. Raids are a joke, we have downed first 3 bosses in heroic gear but some ppl in less than 333 gear. If you were to nerf content or buff healing it would make it EVEN MORE TRIVIAL.
So let heroics remain hard. Dont cave in to these people who just a year ago were complaining that you were too stupid to design challenging content, that they could pull an entire heroic dungeon and smite individual mobs to death while healing themselves. LET HEROICS REMAIN HARD. Raids and regulars whatever they are fine but leave heroics as something that is 'heroic'. In a few months everyone will outgear them terribly anyway .
HEALING IS WORKING AS INTENDED AND DRUIDS AND DISC PRIESTS ARE ABSOLUTELY FINE
Don't Change a Thing :)
tl;dr: Raiding healing is already too easy, dont buff healing to suit heroic dungeons where people are undergeared and generally don't know how to heal. If anything nerf heroic dungeons a little bit until the general gear level is higher and the baddies on these forums can once again faceroll.
