I have a minor guild crisis brewing, and I was hoping you could add light to the situation.
Certain persons in my guild, don't believe at all that geared pallies can compete in a raid healing capacity and after numerous attempts at diplomacy I have resorted to opening the discussion up to the public, the discussions are as follows.
1. Pallies have a a few crappy raid heals but they arn't supposed to be aoe healing.
My response: Well then why did i just out heal the entire raid?
2. Well you out healed a LFR but that still doesn't mean you should raid heal, focus on the tank.
My response: My healing the tank is pretty transparent unless there is spike damage where he needs a healing CD. Beacon of light alone ensures that the tanks getting a decent amount of healing.
3. The tanks Only getting 15% healing from a AOE.
My response: Thats 15% X How many I hit from radiance and dawn? Once i get 2 set bonus
Holy shock should hit for nearly 100% AND its an AOE in the right rotation.
4. Your not optimized for AOE healing.
My Response: if i just only healed the tank then you would complain about my Low numbers.
I don't need to JUST direct heal the tank because hes getting more healing done from mass AOE healing that i would just doing divine light.
With all of this being said, I'm not on bad terms with these guys, but it would be nice to get a out side opinion on the matter, since they don't trust I know what I'm doing.
If I'm wrong I will tone down the aoe healing and only throw out the occasional aoe heal.
If Im right, then please explain in detail why.
