My two cents on “Harming others for being fair” I’m sorry Tamarind got kicked from a group for sticking up for principles. If I had been in that group, then I probably wouldn’t have been so fervent in the principles of making them run back, I would have rezed them. Because it was POS and I want that trinket, so yes I would sell my principles for 5 min, BUT! any other instances – I really have nothing to lose so I can stick to my guns as much as I like. ( I stand by leaving an instance cause a scrub dps made himself more scrub by wearing a santa hat and refused to take it off)
I disagree that rezing one person because they were lazy can be more time efficient, sure arguing with them is counterproductive, but here are some numbers for you to consider from a priest healers perspective.
It Costs me 5.5k ish mana to rez on person you if you die in a dungeon -
2317 – Resurrection
1197 – Shadow Protection
1004 Divine Spirit
So after a wipe add an extra add an extra 3k mana if I’m applying group buffs. Which I can’t do untill the person needing rezing pops up, and
yes I have to rebuff everything or people get upset.
When I rezed into the instance I had around half my mana pool of 23.6 k mana available, so 11.8 k mana
To rez that one person, heal them to full , top up the rest of the group that didn’t sit down and eat ( usually the non mana party members) I am down at least 9-10k mana – so all the while my mana regen is ticking, I still need to inner fire myself, and sit down and drink myself back up to full mana.
Then the tank pulls because he is ready, and so is the rest of the party – its just that stupid slow healer that is holding you up.
So the pull starts with me on 2- 3k mana.
Silly – if it’s an easy pull – we survive, but who wipes on the easy pulls in POS – So if its one with flamebearers, and diseases that need cleansing, dispels that need dispelling, group damage. 3k mana just doesn’t cut it.
I am then expected to blow a cool down – a mana pot, use my fiend, to make sure I have enough mana to heal you because I don’t want to die.
Cool downs aka oh sh*t buttons should not be used due to impatience.
(working on the assumption in this senario the tank doesn’t wait – doesn’t have raid frames and is impatient – which is about 50% if the pug tanks I heal. )
So the harm.. yes the harm is you might just wipe again….
I found out an interesting thing on Krick and Ick the other day – a tank made a terrible pull while there were too many adds up in the local area – the dps all blew up because they didn’t run out and no healer can heal through that.. so when Krick was running at me – the last party member alive. Ground shaking – his eyes ablaze. I Shadow melded.
Meh – the only thing your failure cost me on that was the silver for the buff reagents. I can live with that.
