Respec to Holy & and then back


We had a Kara run organised Sunday night – but the team had lost the leader of that raid from the guild – and I was asked to repec to Holy – Guild would pay for the respec,

I said I would do it – I have 1200 + healing gear on me at all times,  but Ive never had to repec. So 25 gold later – I was holy with a couple of new spells toolbarred, geared, and with  some fishsticks and my Brilliant mana oil,  I had decent healing.

We had cleared up to Prince last run,  so the RL decided to try Illhoof first. 2 x wipes and then we try Netherspite x2 wipes. I had no complaints as to my healing – but i found the whole respec rather unfair. Ive chosen to be a shadow priest, I can be flexible,  but asking me for a respec is like giving someone an Ebay account and expecting to know the toon. You don’t.  I’ve had no practise being a main healer on a lower boss ( If a healer has died – Ive stepped up,  but on an unfamiler big fight with a mainly guild pug/and some real pugs – and an ‘uncomfortable’ spec. I didn’t feel I had performed my best.   As I said there were no complaints about my healing  – but I still felt that it was unfair to me. We all appriciate a good healer,  but its not something I chose, and I object to respecing for such an unimportant goal. After the wipes we gave up. I went back to shadow, and the officer who made me respec said the guild will pay bothways,  I refused – figuring I did well for Epics in the orginal to Prince run, so a loss of gold was not a concern. ( esp since Ive been farming Shad and Water Primals)   but what I did say to the leader that its a concern that you are relying on respecs to fill numbers.

Respecing is not something that should be done casually – especially when the intention is change back.  If you have unlimited funds, and you enjoy it, then thats your choice,  but specs are there for a reason. If they are not useful find another

This whole guildless thing is starting to appeal  I understand the need for flexibility – but This was not my character – not my toolbar, and not what I was familar playing.
