Not counting the fact the first two tanks we had were kinda stupid (Everyone was raging at them after they failed to even attempt to keep aggro and/or stay alive more then a few times), we had this lovely little healer with us.
And I say that sentence after marinading it in sarcasm for a week or so.
Not that they were bad or anything. On the contrary, they were outstanding, pulling almost 40K HPS the whole run in mostly 397 Gear, a few 403's I believe too judging by their Mana. Not that it was really necessary considering everyone else was doing at least 20K HPS and the lowest was 17K, so we stayed alive fairly well. But after the first wipe on Ultrax people started voicing their doubt about the tanks (They were alternating getting 1-shot, practically. One would get Brez'd and then the other would die and vice-versa), that little buttercup of a healer said "We could use some better heals too . . .".
I have no idea what that was suppose to mean since, as before, everyone was pulling 20K HPS average at least, thats more then ample healing as long as the tanks use the damn button . . . which they were not, but they are not the focus here right now.
That was also after demanding a rez after everyone else runs back in. Quote:
"I dont run back."
Whatever . . .
We get new tanks after more derp ensues and they get kicked, new Tanks help us BAMF our way through Ultrax, Blackhorn and Spine, and things are going great with only a few DPS dying occasionally. That healer though usually has something to say after each boss about the healing being done (Reminder, lowest was like 17K HPS).
We get to Madness, and everything goes fine until the second-to-last platform when like 5 or so DPS eat it and we almost wipe. But we pull through and move on to wailing DW himself and the Raid's HP seems stable, if fluctuating a bit.
For some reason that lovely flower of a healer asks if it calls for a wipe and if we should do it, since we apparently cant recover from that . . . One of the other healers chimes in something along these lines:
Some healer: "Nah, this is hardly a wipe."
Lovely Healer: "Well, your hardly a healer either, so whats your point?"
Some Healer: "I never said anything about being a healer."
Lovely Healer: "You queue'd as a healer when your barely able to do it."
As I am wondering where in the hell that came from since it was brought out of nowhere, DW Dies and epic Lewtz were rolled. No wipe, no bad, just a regular run.
Forgot to mention, Heart of Unliving drops from Spine, and this is the first time I ever saw it. I Need on it (The only thing I myself could use fromt he whole run), since I could use it.
. . . Guess who's the only one who got a higher roll on it then me?
Immediately I am wondering why in the living !@#$ she would need on it. I inspect and see her amazing gear and slightly sub-par trinkets: A Core of Ripness (Or whatever that 359 one is called) And a Foul Gift Of the Demon Lord.
Yea, yea she could technically use it, but why? WHY? She could run freaking Heroic to get gear with what she was managing to do. But no, instead she ran a LFR and berated the other healers the entire time because she was pulling such insane HPS in comparison that she felt she was some god and that her judgement meant a damn thing to anyone else simply because of that. This is assuming that she even used the thing at all.
I know a lot of people express dismay at carrying others and they get annoyed when said carried players get all the gear. Yea, I can understand that if the carried people weren't even TRYING to do anything.
But more then a few people I've seen seem to assume that if you do anything less then complete and totally over-the-top OP DPS/Healing/Tanking pulls then you are some kind of failure, regardless of the instance or the intended ability range of it.
So when I go into a Raid and I try my hardest to keep even the derpiest DPS alive through the whole thing, and some 400+ ilvl player comes in and completely demolishes my numbers, it makes me a horrible player undeserving of anything at all and I am just a bane to the group if I am not matching them?
. . . Seriously?
I dont think I am a terribly great healer. I've been told I am such but I still sometimes wonder when I accidentally let someone die, or I miss a mechanic I needed to pay attention to, or I just plain space out with exhaustion and let someone's HP drop a little too far for comfort. But at least I'm not a totally disgusting piece of garbage when it comes to dealing with others who may not be as geared as me.
EDIT: I R Spell gudz. And clarification.
