I can agree with that comment. Best tips for a tank: Your healer is your best friend. If you have a good healer you can make it through almost anything. Tanking isn't all that hard, you just have to keep threat on the kill target and make sure to not pull if your healer is at 20% mana. If your DPS pulls off you, they need to learn how to reduce their threat (iceblock/invis, feign, feint, talent points, etc). Take it easy and breathe :D We're all in this together.To new healers: The absolute biggest problem I had when I started healing was forgetting to heal myself. I would watch the left screen for my party and heal them when needed while completely forgetting about myself (I'm not silly enough to stand in the aoe fire am I? .........) The best advice given to me was to pull your party window out so you see it in the middle of the screen. This was really easy to do with raids. If you're not opposed to mods, I'd suggest Grid. It keeps a window for your parties health at all times and it's really small so you don't have to worry about it taking up your whole window. Now I just heal anyone on the little screen that needs a heal and Hey look! I just healed myself! Yay!! Remember to prioritize your healing (like someone else mentioned). Heal your tank, then yourself, then your DPS. You and a tank can make it through most encounters by yourself, then DPS just help you do it faster and make it easier. :D
