I think a lot of people are missing the point on the namby pamby healer thing.What Zach meant was that even though the class was designed to be hit while in combat and is in no way squishy, we holy paladins are relegated to the back of the warfare making our hands all glowy:http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/community/comics/gallery.html#196As it is right now, paladin healers have no justification of wearing plate, considering we sit back with all the squishies instead of jumping into the battle head on. And I think namby pamby would apply to all the healing classes anyway.

Ok I was making this responce to Zach, but for some reason the reply function was missing. As you made the same comments I figured I'd respond to you.Zach asked me what gear I was talking about. Yes I wear plate, but each plate item has some form of combination of +intellect, +healing and +mana regained and I'm doing pretty good with the healing. Personally I agree with Zach's opinion on having seals that work with holy spells. It's the namby-pamby remark that I take a offence at. The idea that if you're Holy Spec you're limp wristed and (as someone else said) lazy as a healer. I get pretty annoyed at that because I work hard as a healer, not just with heals, but with keeping up blessings (it amazes me how many pally's I've come across who don't buff and maintain the group with blessings), cleasing, , etc, etc. Anyway Zach is entitled to his opinion and as I said, I agree, mostly. I just wish he had worded this article differently.
