I'm a Shadow Priest, and was asked to heal for an instance last night. I'd forgotten just how little fun it is. I am always up front with people and tell them that I am not a healer and I have zero points in Holy. The response I got last night was "well, can you heal decent?" Sure... if you can play decent.You are blamed for EVERYTHING, including a Mage who sheep-pulls and can't shake the agro, or a Warlock who you rez, and then they back into a mob and die again. I get tired of seeing people stop attacking, and take the time to type "HEAL!" because I'm certain no Priest has ever had time to stop casting Flash Heal and type "DPS!" and it's not a lot of fun to spend the money on a 25" widescreen display only to spend 2-3 hours looking at 5 little green bars in the upper-left hand corner.I can't out-heal your crappy gear, your inability to taunt effectively, and your pet is your baggage, not mine. I am not an excuse for people to play poorly, and I'm certainly not willing to put up with the blame for it. This article brings up a great point: a good healer is hard to find, and should be treated with respect. Until more people do that, they will always be in short supply, and I'll spec Shadow.
