Skootalloo's Steak Surprise - Healer OT

I'm having a hard time believing that his healing is so bad that he's getting booted from LFR. When I tried out Disc for a bit in LFR, I kind of fooled around and tried to get my hps as high as I could, and even though I burned my mana fairly quickly, I pulled huge numbers without much of an issue (Spirit Shell is OP). Even burning through my mana, I still lasted at least 75% of the way through the fight, and when I played more seriously, I easily lasted the whole fight. But even with that, I still managed to outlast a few of the other healers while doubling their hps. Yet I've NEVER seen a healer get kicked from LFR because of poor healing, because the content is so easy that the other healers can easily pick up a bad healer's slack. I've done LFR with a whole ton of awful healers and no one ever called them out or kicked them. You'd have to be phenomenally terrible to be kicked from LFR.

A couple things I find weird:

1. Disc assigned solely to tank healing
2. Disc going oom
3. Disc is still topping chart
4. Disc has overhealing (PoH spam for SS or DA?)

This makes me wonder if maybe the letter writer is a crappy healer and the disc is frantically trying to pick up their slack. :P

Grats!

Not sure how a Disc priest manages to Oom... I suppose there are some fights where it is helpful to have one healer more responsible for the tanks while the 2nd healer deals with a mechanic in 10 mans... but I dunno why you'd have a 'dedicated' tank healer o.O?

I OoM on Blade Lord. I'm pretty sure that's because I spam the raid with shields as we run down the hall. Also have some "trouble" on Will, but I think that's largely because I get really bored.

EDIT: Also, Penancing the tank prior to a pull makes sense for Disc, especially when they're focusing on Tank healing. Stacks Grace.


I was down to 100k when tornado phase started cus i was dpsing and refusing to take time away from it to rapture people. Also spamming shields on people with windstep just before the big hit when my spirit shell wasn't up in time ( came off cooldown literally 5 secs before unseen went out, like a person was already targetted so i couldn't SS.)

Dedicated tank healers are actually quite nice for a few fights, although it's less of a strict do it or else in 10 mans. In 25 mans you put a paladin or shaman on the tanks or risk wiping a LOT.

Also, disc can be a good tank healer. :( if they spec right and use lots and lots of haste instead of crit.

So someone from my guild went on the stream? any idea who it was? lol
Elegon is down! I know it's just a normal... but for the guild I am in.. it's a pretty big deal.

Thanks everyone who watched the streams, looked at logs, gave advice, and in general listened to me complain. I love you all! <3

I can't think of anything other than perhaps the milk I drank was out of date...but it tasted fine. I haven't thrown up this much since I used to drink alcohol, lol.

I forgot to take my meds this morning and something triggered me. I don't even know what. On my meds, I just get a little nervous, like normal people; off my meds, it turns into a physical thing that just takes control of me. I'm lucky I had the nice boss there today.
