I can’t heal that sh*t

3 groups in 1 hour.  I  know it was an hour because I paid gold for  a spirit flask.

It seems if you die often enough when you leave group you do not get the deserter debuff.  I tortured myself and kept requeing.

Fooded, flasked, gemmed, chanted  as much to perfection and pride as possible.

It was all my fault.

Do you know how much of a blow to the self esteem it is to fail.  Anyone that cares about doing well no matter what it is  knows the cuts  to the ego the feeling of failing something your trying your damndest to do well at.

It was not only my bones littering several instance floors, but pieces f my pride.

I’m linking recount metres  to a friend,  damage taken,  what damage was taken – thinking I can’t heal that sh*t

I forgot damage done.  3 dps pulling 3k dps on Helix Gearbreaker in Deadmines.  We armoried one  – Pvp gear equipped

Oh.. maybe that one wasn’t my fault.

Nor was the 7 min Baron Asbury attempt in Heroic deadmines

and so on…

One group wanted me to MC and heal at the same time.  ( it is possible in Vortex Pinnacle on the  Temple Adepts,   but not in Halls on the first pull) I was the “BADDIE HEALER HAHAHAHAH” I should have told them to  go jump,  3 of them left anyway after the wipe.   It was just me  the healer, and a dps left, and I left, and took the debuff.

I got kicked from a group  in Grim Batol because I couldn’t heal their failures, even after I predicted that they would fail and prehealed, shielded and levitated them after they were thrown in the air.  ( should have life gripped)

I worked out the difference between the pug groups that fail, and the ones I run with friends, or even a deadmines tonight with guild ( post nerf)

It’s dps.

I can heal your mistakes,  as long as you don’t get too much time to stand in rockfalls, or green puddles.

If you’re pulling 3k dps   its going to take longer to kill things, more damage taken, harder to heal  – and the people I run with don’t do 3k dps

I did a Deadmines post nerf healing as disc tonight, and 3 guildy dps. The first wipe was in the nightmare because no one listened to me about jumping over the side straight away, and they were either too slow, or landed in the fire. While I was full health agroing the boss..  “HELLO… can I get a tank over here please?”  Our pug tank was good.  It helped alot,  but yeah we had a few more singular deaths in various places eg ” stop eating the bad food…” Or me on vent was ”  Blah..  your standing in bad shit..  move.. ”   but overall I felt rather confident.  Because it was nerfed they didn’t use CC. We had a hunter, mage, and Shadow priest as dps.   We had options. They cut out enough of the bad stuff and the trash packs so it was quicker and easier, I didn’t really need CC to help  my healing load.    Just  more a few more pauses to regain mana  for the times I had to ” Flash Flash Flash”

As much as I believe that Heroics are really  a slap in the face for the dps that don’t want to be team players,  don’t have a clue, I think they overnerfed it, Make things hit for less, rather than take them out,  it looks like they just removed the mobs that caused the most deaths.

This mob was responsible for *blah* deaths.

Sentence: Banished from deadmines for overzealous killing of players

    I know the feeling, albeit, I haven’t really heal in many many years (only recently started to level my gnome priest, and I have to heal to get into random dungeon). As a tank, I even have problem telling my guild dps to do certain things.

    BTW, Baron Ashbury is well rested in Heroic Shadowfang Keep.

    People need to get used to not standing in the fire or taking raid damage more seriously. In five mans there’s so much avoidable damage and it saves healers so much more mana when DPS actually play with their eyes open. As a fellow priest healer I can relate all too well to your situations. The first time I tried to heal Lost city the third boss kept owning us. I thought it was me the whole time until I realized people were standing in the wrong places at the wrong times.

    But of course, they blamed me.

    I am actually happy that it is being recognized that healers are the ones getting blamed for the deaths. Sure we have mana issues specially because half of our utility belt is exponentially more expensive now… I wish our cooldowns to regain mana did more than they do right now.

    In the end, heroics are healable with a good group, but damage sometimes in pretty inevitable.

    Take for example the first boss in BRC. There are plenty of ways to deal with him, but the one that I would prefer is impossible because there is no way a healer can keep me completely topped off right now… it makes it that you have to execute the fight the way it was designed rather than giving you alternatives.

    I have all but given up on pugs, or going in with the mindset that one boss is all I will be able to do. My guildies are getting geared and I think we should be able to just run on our own most of the time.

    Why do you blank out the names of the idiots?

      because of this thing called googleability, and its still an opinion, our there, there could be someone complaining about that stupid healer who didn’t meet their expectations at game play. I also don’t want more people to be afraid of playing with me 🙂

    I’ve been there. I attempted to heal once on my shammy back towards the end of wrath and low and behold I get HoR heroic I mean what the holy fuck :/. I failed miserably, we’d get to wave nine of those adds and wipe. Was it my fault? Possibly but I had our ten man healer with me at the time and she couldn’t heal us through it either.

    I think the problem is if you fail to down a boss people instantly look to the tank or the healer when in fact most of the time it is due the dps slacking. If you ain’t interrupting, ccing and doing more damage (around twice as much is fair I reckon) in general than you did in wrath heroics you’re doing it wrong.

    Beakers and tanks have it harder than ever and we as dps should be doing our best to ensure that we keep them wanting to play the roles we don’t.

    I am sad to say its not all ways the dps. Sure their are some horrible dps and equally horrible tanks but I have had a couple of runs where I have got so tired of repeated bad healers ,I have given up on getting my nub dps alt their random valor points for the day and just swapped to my main to heal it. If i finish a boss fight bored @ 80% mana we have been wiping 5-6 times on, Its not the group that suddenly got better, after all its the same group except for 1 pug dps who suddenly got a spot when I swapped to healer.

    If PUGs have taught me anything in this game, it’s that you can heal a lot of things, but you can’t heal stupid.

    whilst wipes generally used to be pretty much the tank or the healers fault pre-cata (from what I saw of it, having had quite a long break), the new instances seem to be a step change, rather than just being a gear check, you need to bring ability along with you too! The tank and healer are still important, and if you balls-up you’ll wipe prety quickly, but I’ve found the new mechanics mean DPS being thick very quickly equates to an OOM healer no mater how good their gear is.

    I summarised my ‘rules’ for Cata heroics a couple of weeks ago, I’m thinking of sticking them in a macro to spam before the first pull in PUGs…

    “don’t stand in the crap on the floor or you’ll die”
    “sometimes the crap on the floor will keep you alive, stand in it”
    “kill the adds please”
    “if you can’t kill it, kite it”
