Click the Lightwell...

Just saying...

If you think it's above you to heal yourself after you f**k up, then please reverse the roles.

So many random groups that are too busy staring at the metres, mashing every button they have with their eyes inches away from recount which is plastered into 80% of their screen.

No more kicking the healer because you fail.

Just saying...

In a random normal the other day the following situation occurred:

Rogue stands in fire from 100% of hp to about 10% hp.
Priest healer lifegrips rogue to safety (conveniently right beside lightwell)
Rogue runs directly back into the fire without clicking on the lightwell.
Rogue is now at about 5% hp so I drop shadow form and pull rogue out of fire again. (Conveniently beside lightwell)
Rogue runs to fire and dies.
Boss dies.

Party chat from rogue "Why are you such a terrible healer you scrub?"
Chat from tank (who didn't pop a cooldown or anything to help keep himself alive) "l2p priest"
party chat from priest healer "Sorry, tried to save you rogue but the tank was dying and I was almost oom, next time if you could hit the lightwell and stay out of the fire you will probably live."
Rogue replies "Screw you scrubs. l2p. Don't pull me off the boss."
Vote kick goes up for the healer. Reason: Priest.
I voted no but the kick worked.
I was kicked immediately after that.

Sometimes you just can't win.

Maybe you should consider everything that a dps has to keep up with during a heroic boss encounter these days. We might be a little too busy trying to maximize dps while avoiding obstacles to even notice that you have put a lightwell down.

#showtooltip
/cast lightwell
/y LIGHTWELL DOWN
/p LIGHTWELL DOWN
/s LIGHTWELL DOWN

Have fun not getting your dps to click it with that macro.

Lightwell is amazing. And it doesn't matter how good or responsible you are, everyone takes damage. Use it.

Holy priests aren't balanced around the use of lightwell.


Would it help? Sure. But you walked into a random with high expectations, so you are the one to blame here.

I'd kick a healer that was looking for an easy ride too.

When its down and I need a heal.....

I just have never grouped with you thats prolly why you think I don't.

(P.S. Lightwell, even though I use it, is still a terrible spell imo)

Lightwell is actually a pretty cool spell and amazingly effective atm.

tl;dr for the ADD-kiddies: Don't stand in fire and don't expect to be at 100% HP all the time, do everything you can to keep yourself alive, including using Pots and Bandages and Lightwells.

I play DPS classes, and Healers and Tanks, and by no means am I here to bash, but something about this post just caught me wrong:
Holy priests aren't balanced around the use of lightwell.

I'd kick DPS that refuse to take responsibility for their own actions, like standing in fire, and %!!!%ing about a Healer letting them die.

I'd kick DPS that ignore fight mechanics because they want to get off that one last cast while standing in fire, and if they die because they stood in fire waiting for a cast bar to finish, then it was pointless anyways.

I'd kick DPS that don't follow CC order and kill order.

I'd kick DPS that don't know what CC abilities they have and refuse to use them.

I'd kick DPS that don't use Healing resources available to them like Pots and Bandages and a Lightwell.

From all the posts I've read here, with DPSers lecturing anyone who isn't DPS that comes in here that you don't need to be taught your class, I agree. Every non-baddie WoW player SHOULD know their own class, but from DPS posts in the Tanking and Healing forums, it seems that DPS expect the Tanks and Healers to not only know their own class but EVERY other class and the dungeons as well.

It's not too much for Tanks and Healers to expect DPS to know their own class. I KNOW everyone here does, but is it SO unrealistic to expect other DPS to know what CCs are available to their own class?

No one expects an easy run until they over-gear the instances and if DPS won't do anything to help keep themselves alive to keep doing DPS, then that's not my problem. If the Healer tried to save your ass, he's doing his job. It doesn't hurt you to take a little care in not running through the same stuff he just pulled you out of.

I dunno, maybe as a Healer I expect people to actually do what they're supposed to, like know your class? When I ask a Mage to Polymorph something and have to wait 3 minutes while he "puts it on my action bar" that's a fail on the DPSers part (and I bet no one here is that fail). The excuse that "we've seen the content, we don't need to CC, they're too easy" with the new healing paradigm just doesn't fly anymore. Healing is more about efficiency and to %!!!% at a healer because you're not at 100% ALL the time is unrealistic. Healing requires Triage now, and if you're not a priority target, you're not going to be full up, but the expectation on the Healer's part is that you're not going to do dumb #%*# like stand in a fire to get that last spell off even if it kills you, and it most likely will.

So instead of renew, you expect us to go out and farm mats for those rai-- oh wait. They're heroics or normal dungeons. If you can't heal a heroic then you need to keep doing dungeons or get some addons to help you be more effecient / tell the tank "I'M OOM NOW!!".

Yes, it's not entirely unrealisitic for us to use our self-healing abilities. If you don't know how to CC, then you need to relearn your class.
