Even if you're not in healing gear, a hybrid can still help out in an emergency. You still have decent healing spells. The main reason most hybrids don't do it is that it's rather difficult to be concentrating on both the monster that you are DPS'ing AND the party's health bars. So most hybrids will miss it when the health bars start to dip drastically. You really have to make an effort to pay attention to both things at once.As an elemental shaman, I'm probably best equipped out of all hybrid specs to help heal. I have +dmg/heal gear, I stand back from the action so I can better see what's going on, and I'm only hitting like one button (lightning bolt) so that frees up my attention for the health bars.Other hybrids will have a more difficult time but it's still possible to backup heal (unless you're a druid who's bear tanking, switching out of bear form is likely a death sentence).
