I finished the last 3 bosses of the first LFR tier in MoP, and I got some nice thingies to show.
But sadly, healing in LFR is really not fun. I’m the kind of healer that really hates over healing, so I tend to not spam a lot of AOE heals as a result. Only during several AOE heavy damage phases I go bananas and pewpew my Circle of Healing, Prayer of Healing and Cascade.
So there I was, doing my mana efficient thing, when I notice another Priest healer doing 56k HPS … wow … what the fuck? Healing like I always do made me go up to 25-27k, and I was keeping melee DPS alive like a pro, so what was wrong?
So I inspected the other healer, and noticed he was similar geared and Holy specced as well. So I payed some attention to his style … which was … spam. Spam spam spam. Did I mention he also ran out of mana a lot?
A good friend of mine recently got into a casual raiding guild, and they did their first normal the other week. He was top DPS (he’s a very good DPS btw) and he said he really enjoyed raiding for real.
I wish I had the time and didn’t have a severe case of alt-ti-ni-tis to try out real raiding. I dabbled a bit with real raiding in Cataclysm on my Death Knight, because a friendly guild of ours was having problems getting their DPS roster filled. I enjoyed the fights and all, but all the downtime in between wipes was a real killer for me.
And being stuck in a healing role is bleh. That’s also one of the changes I don’t like about the new loot system in LFR. The fact you always get healing gear as a healer. I wish we could choose a drop based on a spec we prefer.
