Yeah, long title… but what I was told
The title story this week is from my own server. Names have been eliminated out of respect for my server.
On the disc priest – VoA10 – NOT cross server. I’m asked to come in and heal by a guildie. Sure, I can use the frost badges. I get in there and see one of the people from our last guild split… we don’t get along, but eh, I figure we can do an instance together – I don’t mind all that much and it’s not like VoA takes long or anything. We get to Toravon, and I’m dumping heals on the [undergeared] OT, as is the other healer – plus trying to keep the main tank up [my focus] and the other healer is trying to throw some raid heals in addition to helping with the OT. I literally have no time to do anymore more than throw a power word shield on myself so the raid healer [a druid] can heal me back up so I can keep the tanks up. Hunter from the other guild ends up dying – and starts snarking in raid chat about “great heals on the hunters lol”. My druid counterpart commented that hunters were not top priority and she was doing her best, and I added that I sorta had my hands full keeping the tanks up. “I’m outie then.” You heard it here first – Hunters have priority on heals over tanks! And should be healed through standing in stuff – by the TANK healer!
ETA: Apparently me not focusing on the dps as a tank healer has greatly offended several people. I still have yet to fathom why nor am I going to waste any more time listening to QQ about it. I throw raid heals when I can as a tank healer. I did my level best on that run and I have nothing to be sorry for.
I got into an H-ToC on my disc priest. Tank has 30k health… eh, no big… so they need a little gear. Until they start taking massive craptons of damage. Half asleep, I don’t bother to check the guy on armory till the last fight – Nuus of Akama had 469 defense. And I healed him through H-ToC with only 2 wipes. I mentally kicked myself for not being as aware as usual – because I should have known there was a problem when I couldn’t even spare a bubble for the dps, and the tank always stayed at a sliver of health [except for the times he shot down so quick and we wiped]. He cussed me out when I told him never to come back till he was def capped.
Trowalicious – Eitrigg; Lightsblade – Aegwynn; Painsmygame – Gundrak – biggest fail run in a while – The two uber dps couldn’t watch their threat – or wouldn’t. The pally healer couldn’t heal worth crap. Vote kicked hubby for not holding threat [he just started gearing up his dk to tank – and ICC25 geared dps blasting offtargets was not helpful], so I refused to requeue – made them vote kick me. All the hunter could say was “u suck” and couldn’t be bothered to spell it right – though he spelled it about 10 wrong ways… always entertaining lol.
