2 heal most time is enough.
3 heal only if the 2 healers REALLY impossible to heal up the raid.
3 heal = less 1 dps, mean need more time to kill the boss and need more healing.


I prefer doing it in whatever way that guarantees higher success rates. Why 2 heal stuff when you are way under the enrage timer? it makes no sense if people are dying sporadically due to lack of heals.

Use many healers in a fight cannot train good healers. If can solo heal, we should solo heal.


Healers are challenged whenever a group member dies to damage. So unless if the entire tier is cleared, healers will become better players as long as there's things to heal.


If a fight can really be run by 2 heal, but it run 3 heal, then it just make the fight longer, and make the healing not challenging.


Only applies to farm mode but then healers won't be challenged regardless.

Do we REALLY need 0.5 healer in normal (NOT heroic) raid?
I don think so.

The MW who run fully fistweave in normal mode, I am sure if he go dps spec, the raid can end faster without wipe.


I prefer to 3 heal everything.

Likewise, though I think of it more as 2.5 healing with how much Atonement spam I do.

I don't really understand the point of this thread. It feels like a "duh" kinda thing...

Even most heroic modes at this point are 2 healed, with a rare few being 3 healed. It's just common sense to 2 heal instead of 3 heal except when absolutely necessary.

Pointless thread is pointless.

To me,

This thread doesn't seem to be a troll, but rather it sounds like a Mistweaver Monk who wants to dps, and has their raid leader telling them, "No, we need your healing even if you are dpsing the whole fight!" So he's trying to get proof that fights can be two healed from the healing community.

Personally, I find their writing incredibly hard to understand/ read as their sentences are jumbled and they aren't writing properly in most instances.

Either way, YES, fights can be two healed. And yes, fights can be three healed. If you think you should be 2 healing a fight, and you are 3 healing it instead, talk to your raid leader. Don't just ask them to go down to 2 heals, ask them why they feel they need 3. A lot of times, you will find that the raid leader isn't comfortable with the other healers to allow you to dps. This happened in my old guild quite frequently.

And if you are wanting to dps so badly, and your raid leader is not allowing it, then find a new home. Don't stick around in a situation where you are not going to be happy. We all pay (in some way or another) to play this game. Don't waste your money on things that aren't making you happy.

This is the oddest post I've seen in a long, long time. Boils down to ...

"Try two healing. If that doesn't work, try three healing."

Great?

We go about it the other way: 3-heal until we find it's necessary (or just more fun) to 2-heal due to enrages or mechanics (yo, Sha).

I think it helps on progression. When the fight's still new, people are going to make mistakes, and having an extra healer helps to mitigate those, making fights last longer so people get a better feel for it. At least that's been my experience.

Weirdest thread ever, especially when the OP copy pasted it from a answer they had in a different thread.

I don't think the OPs group's issue is if that 10th player is healing or DPSing. It's probably entirely mechanics based.

I agree, three heal all the way if you have the dps for it.

Hell, lets move on to 4 healing.

I hear you can do that for Megeara!

Is 4 healing like 8 healing something in a 25 man? Cuz we do that on Horridon of the Non-Existent Trinket.

We 3 heal everything with Disc/Disc/Druid, which is better than any 6 DPS setup.
