Would You Play a DK Healer?

I am sure we have all thought about this at some point or another no matter how far we may have actually gone into the thought process, but I personally have been iterating in my head for a long time now that if Blizz was to add a 4th spec to the game the first thing they would discuss to giving Death Knights a healer option. It wouldn't be as far fetched as people think because we already have skills that allow healing.

Let me know what you guys think by heading over to the MMO Champ forums and voting in the poll and also read for interesting skill ideas.

I'm a DK to be melee.

Also, maybe there would be some way to convert your B/F/U runes to necrotic runes that maybe could used to empower runes used by them?

A dk as a healer? No way its bred into you to kill and maim and mutilate..The thought of DK's healing sends shudders down me. Ok i am posting on a mage but i do have a dk lol

Dunno, I don't have much faith in Blizzard doing innovative things with specs and classes anymore.

I'd play one, if it weren't on mana. I hate mana.

I think it'd be interesting to play a sort of Dark Paladin at least, using corrupting power to pump stolen life back into an ally. There would have to be stacking debuffs the target would get when healed by a DK that would empower one aspect but nerf another.

Something like a clutch move that reduces the target's damage but increases healing received or saps health from yourself to heal.

Lore-wise, doesn't make any sense unless a Paladin retained some powers when risen to undeath.

Come on, if a 4th spec were added and it were a healer spec, half of the DK population would jump on it. Don't give me any of this "I play a DK to be a melee" BS, something new and innovative will always draw a huge portion of the population. Personally, I would definitely spec into it.

I don't play healers. Ever.

I just can't get behind the mindset of my job being keeping everyone alive rather than murdering something.

Befor and DK I said the two combos missing from the game were ranged tank and melee healer. Dk and monk filled those roles. I've never considered being a healer and actively avoid classes that can heal to avoid being asked to spec/gear for it.

No is my vote. Hell no. If I wanted to heal on a 2h swinging plate wearer id roll a paly.

Palys have the option, why not DKs? No one would be forcing you to spec healing. Are you so stuck up to think that the option shouldn't be there just because you don't want to use it?

Adding in this 4th spec would require a massive overhaul and rebalancing. Things would have to change and not all for the better, as far as what people are used to.

That's what people are "stuck up" about.

I updated the OP on the MMO thread with a link that explains the concept a little more.
