I was reading this fairly informative guide to the art of pulling and noticed this at the top:


Hmm... what's wrong with this picture?

Haha. It's especially apropos after a run through DM East last night which led to a rant from Kal re: healing classes who seem to forget they have that ability.

It's true, I hate when I PuG with a shadow priest or feral druid (or even retribution pally) who won't revert to healing form to backup the main healers. I'd like to think that mm (a pally) being a hybrid class, does a decent job at buffing/healing/moral supporting my team Razz. It's a delicate balance one can only achieve thru many years of wandering the earth perfecting the craft I guess...

Just come out of feral/shadow form and heal damnit!

I've recently noticed that people have a tendency to forget that I am a Druid which means I can HEAL. I've had to remind at least 2 groups of that fact.

however I do feel very overwhelmed when I am the sole healer in a group.

Yeah, funniest part of that picture is that it's a paladin begging for a heal... I've noticed that a lot with pallys in particular (not you Thal, you're an all-around good player, for truth), one actually had "heal" in his NAME and yet didn't heal a damn thing. (That said, I had a great experience with a pally in MC last night -- she actually ranked with Kal on the healing meter AND did her share of damage and off-tanking. It was weird. Heh.)

I understand druids who are busy tanking and don't have time to switch form and heal... I understand priests who can't survive solo without turning to shadow... hell, I understand anyone who doesn't *want* to stand around healing -- I just don't get why one would choose a healing class and not at least learn to take care of themselves.
