I’m becoming an angry healer :(
I came to this realization last night, after snarling through an “alt run” of OS10 (on my main, of course; both healers were on mains, although one was an off-spec retadin).
The main tank was the warrior alt of our holy-turned-shadow priest. He is a damned good healer … and a god-awful tank. Still, it wasn’t his tanking that had me all riled up (“on the warpath,” as one slightly wary-of-me hunter put it; they really aren’t used to seeing me rage in /guild chat!). No, it was the fact that the entire group — 100% melee, by the way, and 40% Death Knight — would stand around at half health after each trash pull.
Just standing there, waiting none-too-patiently for me to heal them up to full.
So the healadin and I would look at each other and /sigh, and top them off … and EVERY SINGLE TIME, without fail, the main tank would charge ahead to the next pull (or drake!) when we were still at half mana from healing the entire 10-man raid while out of combat.
You’d think that someone who raided on a healer throughout the entire Burning Crusade and much of the current expansion would know how utterly impolite (and foolish) this is … but, no. Even when the paladin and I /afk’d the readycheck before Sartharion (we were healing! and drinking!), the warrior didn’t take the hint.
“Why aren’t you ready? Come on.”
So I’m becoming an angry healer. You know, the kind who hates tanks. And hates DPS. And writes scathing blogposts to vent her frustrations after “alt runs” she should never have joined in the first place.
Is there a support group for this?
