Whats funny is that barely a day goes by where there isn't a 15 page thread asking "how come nobody heals in battlegrounds?"Given that PvP is being rebalanced entirely around killing healers, I wonder why nobody wants to heal in PvP?

I can say as a frequent BG healer that the job often sucks in no small part because people don't always look out for you. Not everyone has the option on the default UI enabled to see who's healing them and may genuinely be unaware of who's doing it, but there's really nothing worse than being under attack as a healer while the people you've kept alive run to finish off a low-health enemy for another KB.On the other hand, a player who wades through a mass of enemies to kill someone who's trying to kill me is going get healed for the rest of the battleground, period. They don't die unless I do. Problem is, with more MS effects in the game and the upcoming nerf to drinking, BG healing isn't getting any more attractive.

Seriously. I actually enjoy healing in BGs (not interested in Arenas at all). Blizzard seems hellbent on making my role more and more unenjoyable and frustrating. Are people not dieing enough in BGs? Being a priest and a clothie, that certainly doesn't seem to be a problem with me. What's this newfound urge for them to reduce healing? I'm sure it has something to do with balancing issues in Arenas. I'm getting very fed up with this game.

I don't want to heal in AV in some areas, such as when people pick up two dozen NPC's right around the alliance base.....I land a few heals and suddenly they're all beating on me, and the aforementioned nobody looking out for healers goes into effect....yeah, i'll just heal pre-bridge, and on Vann, else look for me to be lolsmiting, psychic screaming, PoMing, with maybe the occasional flash on someone who's actually PvPing versus an ally.Stupid NPC's, nerf their location around the alliance base, OR, nerf the stupidness of many hordies.
