Another said that logs are the important part - uptime, efficiency etc.
Okay. I get it. But the numbers are important.
Healing Done is the easiest and most obvious metric we have of healer performance (essentially how much of the raid's damage was healed by you). Blizzard actually changed Absorbs specifically for this reason (they weren't showing up on the meters) which was quite a job - but they thought it was important enough.
Disregarding discussions of who is OP/UP currently - I do think that Blizzard needs to pay closer attention to the healing numbers that are all most players will see. Of course, it's not as important as dps - but some parity is a good thing. 'Utility' is very, very hard to quantify.
So - am I totally off the mark? Does Healing Done/HPS/Effective healing really not matter at all? Is it acceptable for a class to be 50% behind the others due to some nebulous 'utility'?
