Really, this is just mind bogglingly stupid. I suggest everyone who has a healer call blizzard on their 1800 number and bitch at them until they get it through their thick skulls HEALING SUCKS AND IS NOT FUN. We do it because we are HELPING our friends we don't do it because we LIKE IT. We don't level healers because they are FUN. We level healers because they are NEEDED. IF YOU SCREW WITH US WE WILL STOP HEALING THEN THE GAME STOPS FOR EVERYONE. Healers are like the Mob. Everyone gets along fine until you cross the line. Blizzard crossed the line several patches ago now they are sprinting like an Olympic runner towards the cliff of stupidity.

Excuse me? A lot of us LOVE healing. Healing is awesome fun, much more so than dps and tanking.YOU do not like healing. Fine, then don't. But don't attempt to speak for the many of us who happen to think it is a bigger and more interesting challenge, with more thinking and more challenge and more adrenaline involved than trying to keep up some dps rotation.Blizzard keep screwing with us because they listen too much to non-healers telling them what THEY would like healing to be, and too little to what we who enjoy it actually enjoys. Hence the dumbing down of healing with phail-concepts such as "smart targeting" heals taking over, removal of downranking, talents that makes overhealing harmless and similar "simplifications", which leads to brainless boring one-button spam (I'm looking at you "smart" CoH).

Actually downranking was removed because of:1. Unintended use of low rank spells to proc spell effects2. It was taking the devs too long to balance all ranks of all spells, and they figured they had 'better things to do'.
