I play a Warlock. I am brought to do top damage in a raid. Healers are brought to heal.

That doesn't negate the fact that you should assume some responsibility for your own well being. Sometimes it's simply impossible to keep every player up, and a life potion can mean the difference between the healer having that couple extra seconds of time time to save your ass - or not.

Healers are there to heal. Yep.Rule 13 of raiding -- do not stand in that.If you are so dim as to think that your own survival is someone elses responsibility (and you are not a tank) then you are expendable.You are there to DPS. Great! But I can find 15 guys Just like you who won't stand in the fire. Advantage --> Survival.

You are brought to be part of a raid. You are not there on your own, you are part of a group. Your group's success depends heavily on individuals. I raid as a balance druid, so I'm there to DPS. Which I do. But if a healer needs an innervate, we need to brez someone, I need to decurse, remove poison, or offheal momentarily, I will do it. I look out for the best interests of the raid to ensure we succeed as a group.

You are brought to do DPS? Great. DPS = Damage Per Second This means your DPS goes down while the fight is still going on if you aren't doing damage. That happens when you die before the boss does. To maximize your DPS, you have to stay alive and do damage the entire fight. So, if you do DPS, then you obviously do everything you can to stay alive the entire fight, like avoiding fire and being situationally aware, good job!

If the tank dies, it's the healers fault.If the Healer dies, it's the tanks fault. If the DPS dies, it's their own damned fault.
