Hey quick question for you healers that I couldnt find a current topic on. Do you guys get these satchels for first heroics of the day or is that just tanks?

Those things rarely show up for healers and when they do you usually have to put in some effort to make sure to queue right when you see it, or else the reward will be gone in a second.

I don't know why the thing is so hard to get. As far as I'm concerned, if dps (or even healers) are having to wait in queues for more than a few minutes, then the satchel should show up, at least the tanking one.

Yeah the tank one actually does show up pretty much all the time for me, thanks for answering the question (just to be sure, it can show up if I'm quick?)

No, first you have to be lucky about when you're looking to queue. Then, if it does show up, you need to make sure that when the queue pops that the reward is listed, otherwise it means you were too late on hitting queue. And it goes away really fast every time I've seen it.

What? So you have to decline the queue and reque until you get the bag to remain until you hit accept?

There are addons that will automatically queue you when a satchel is available.

If you requeue when the satchel isn't up, you don't get the reward. If you don't want to use an addon, you have to be speedy.

I see, mind giving me a name of one? I don't really know how I would go about searching for one.

I haven't seen a satchel in ages. But I don't believe that is true. If you see it in the list and hit queue, it often pops without showing the reward (most of the time it doesn't) but you still get it if you completed the dungeon.

I've tried twice. See the satchel, queue while its there (and its within a second or so, I don't wait), queue pops, complete dungeon, don't get satchel.

I'll probably just get that addon. I need excuses to farm JP for all those heirlooms anyways.

It has been true recently. I see the healer satchel listed about once a week, and if it isn't shown when the queue pops, I never get it. If it does show, I always get it, even if people drop in the middle of the dungeon and we have to requeue for a replacement.

It seems like the satchel is more likely to be available earlier in the reset.

This has been happening to my DK tank as well.

I've gotten two or three Satchels since I started healing at the start of MoP.

During Cata, when I'd tank, I'd easily get half a dozen Satchels in a day of playing. Every queue would be a satchel.

Ive had maybe a dozen since MoP hit, and Ive found that if the satchel isn't listed when queue pops that your not going to get it and its better to just decline and wait a few minutes to see if its offered again.

Hm maybe they changed it then. You use to still get it even if it didn't show up.

It's not very common, but not very rare. There's an addon to alert you to the satchel when it's available for healers too. I rarely go more than a day or two without one and I don't use the addon or do 5 mans often.

CTA hawk, satchelscanner and CTA watch will all let you know if the healer bribe is up.
