I wonder if Blizz is ignoring us, it's been a problem since release. They are usually pretty time efficient with at least some replies.
I have adapted and adjusted, but I am not enjoying being forced to chose between spamming Chakra/Heal most of the time or going oom. Tedious and frustrating.
My greatest concern atm is not that Blizzard is ignoring us. I am 100% positive that these forums are read and what is being said here is being noted. My real fear is that they cannot "fix' healing without screwing up the other mechanics of the game as it stands now.
If they improved healing the way most of us would prefer, it could potentially trivialize dungeon/raid encounters.
They have not hidden the fact that stats were getting ridiculous and they made a decision to rebalance the game on the backs of healers. It was a conscious decision on their part. Not a screw-up and not an accident. Just imagine if they had gone a different route by rebalancing the game on the backs of the dpsers.
Lower effective mob health and mob damage, have damage per second go up a trivial amount between 80 and 85 and make those damaging spells/attacks cost twice or three times what they cost dps now.
If people think healers are QQing, the complaints of dpsers on the forums would probably have crashed the server by now.
So now the only thing left is for each individual to make the decision to keep playing a healer, level a dps toon or to stop playing at all.
Sorry, I can`t understand that modification.
You have Flash heals that cure almost as Greater Heal and costs more and you have heal that dosen`t cure a milimeter of health bar. I was a healer ever, and I sow myself really frustated by healing since Cataclysm and now I just want to play as SP or change chars.
I can even run a normal instance without beeing OOM or letting someone die, even in trash mobs. I need to drink every 2 pulls or single pull if larger than normal. This is so frustating for me and the others as well. As a SP I never run OOM, even on heroic mode. You have dispersion.
I tried many different ways to heal, and all lead to frustation. With Renew, Serenity and heal, you can`t keep a party alive, you just can sustain the tank damage and if you use Flash heals, you`re doomed. You need to antecipate every move, predict who is going to receive damage.
Bllizard made WOTLK so easy, and now we pay for those kind of players: tank spank lovers, stack everything and AoE, if i die i`ll quit group guys, I`ll not quit DPSing the boss while i`m in the green oose, and more of that kind.
Guys, too late to put the hardcore mode back on wow.
I did not used to think I was a bad healer but then I hit lvl 85 and it's what I cast 5 heals and I'm OOM .... So either I really am a bad healer or I'm just doing it all wrong now.
You shouldn't go oom after casting only 5 spells, but your spec is not great for mana. Also be sure to keep Replenishment up at all times and use Clearcast for Healing Touch as much as possible.
