Back in the days of Circle Muds. I played a healer, and I was *very* good at it, top guild, top of the food chain you name it, But in Everquest and again in WoW, playing a healer is a joke for me. I simply am not adept at it. EQ I was a tad better, but maybe WoW is so much more dynamic in the healing role, ability that I just can't wrap my head around it. I've tried. Disc priest is as close as I get to liking healing in WoW. I've tried making my druid into a healer and while my guild held my hand and supported me, it was laughable. If my husband hadn't been a beefed out raid tank, he would have died many times over. For me after reading your post, I have to say I like rotation and knowing what to do when. Yes healing is definitely more dynamic and reaction based. As for some folks being perfectionists, I can be quite. But healing doesn't satisfy that for me. At least in the visual based games vs MUDS of old. I took care of my dying parents so a healer "role" as far as taking care of people is not beyond me. I really would *love* to be able to heal as I can play almost any class semi well. Just not the healing side of any of them. I play a tank and dps regularly. But if your post held anything true for me it was people slip into what they are good at/know etc... I've played DPS my whole life. And its definitely preferential to do so.
So unless someone wants to brow beat and torture themselves through doing something out of their norm, I think people should stick to what they like and are good at :-)
Thanks for your indepth post!!!
Ps, sucking at healing won't stop me from trying a monk healer tho. I'm open to trying anything once!
