JPN, you should thank the healer b/c its the healers that buff you 75% of the time, its the healers that make it so that you CAN kill the boss, and its the healers that top you off in instances after you kill said boss so you dont have to waste your food or bandages. Its the healers that waste gold on buff reagents, water, and food buffs/pots/elixers(flasks) so that you and the trigger happy tanks can go chain pull and aoe everything down.Its also FUN to kill the boss, to go pewpew on something and stroke your ego, telling yourself that you just killed that thing. Healing can be fun, but in a stressful, hold-your-breath-until-the-3-group-pull-is-over sort of way. DPS is fun b/c if you are half decent, you know the set rotation that you do and you can sit back and only pay half attention to what you are doing. If a healer does that, someone dies.Also, its not that much fun to play a healer with the whack-a-mole interface atm. I remember when I rerolled my warrior tank, going through the instances with my GF saying how cool the instances look, or how ugly the bosses were, or wow! I didn't know chain lightning looked like that! She was mystified that I had never seen some of these instances or bosses before until she played on my healer one afternoon. Healers never get to see anything but the changing health bars.In fact, b/c so few people play healers, they end up getting dragged through several instances in a row and get burned out. Thats what happened to me. Log in, instantly get summoned to an instance/raid, finish and move onto the next one. Rinse and repeat for 4-5 hours. I never got time to farm gold for epic flight, work on professions (hell, my guild at the time GAVE me all the mats for my tailoring so I could get the PMC and Whitemend sets), or anything fun until after I quit my priest.
