I've got a tank (prot-war), healer (holy-priest) and my main is an Affliction Lock. Out of a boss fight with lots of AE, but all means please don't waste mana healing me. I drove a friend crazy while we were doing Isle one day without knowing it. At the end of the quests, she asked if I didn't have bandages or something, since she wasn't spec'd healer."Oh, I didn't know you were trying to heal me, I keep myself around 60% health to keep benefit from Siphon Life, Drain Life, Haunt et cetera."If you're partied with an affliction lock, be aware that in combat they are self-healing, sometimes a LOT. It's a design feature for us, and keeping me topped off is a waste of mana.(Ignoring of course the times when Area heals are used.)Out of combat, sometimes I will lifetap just because it's pointless to have one bar full and the other empty. Both can regen at the same time. With Fel Armor now, I also have accelerated healing. If I notice a healer healing me, I'll let them know it's not needed.(The flip side of this, if someone wants to say Lock's are OP, is that in lots of groups, my DPS isn't fully realized simply because mobs die before DoT's have run their full course. For this reason I usually use my lock when soloing.)
