there's no incentive to do HoS heroic, and every reason not to do it. The timed event is REALLY lame since it has no timer telling you when it's over. I've died SEVERAL times on it, wipe, whatever. Released and not gotten credit because i had no idea how close we were to finishing it.

Yeah its actually quite hard to heal as well - and I'm comparing it to healing Ulduar (which honestly varies from boss to boss in how painful it is). I think there's something wrong with a heroic dungeon where you feel on the edge of being able to heal something wearing t7.5 epics and a bunch of Ulduar gear. To be fair though - there's only 3 heroics I really hate healing - Occulus, HOS and sometimes Lokken in HOL (as a mighty shaman - if you have like over 16k health I can just heal through his damage, but I doubt that's intended)I've gotten more comments from people I know and strangers that seeing what they've seen so far in wrath they'd hate to heal any of this stuff :(.BC was worse though - before they nerfed heroics and Karazhan actually took less time for more stuff/money.

Not sure why you would have such enormous difficulty healing the timed event in HoS, especially if you've got high-end raid gear.I healed that event just fine as a disco priest with only about 1200ish spellpower. Well, "just fine" is probably a bit of an overstatement, unless one defines "just fine" as "pushed to the very limit of my capacity" lol, but we lived to tell the tale.If I'd had equivalent gear to my druid I'm sure I would have managed much better (druid's at roughly 1770 SP), and disco's major weakness is lack of viable area healing. Still I managed to do it... :) HoS isn't so bad really, HoL is much worse, as is Occulus and UP.
Faar if you have high end raid gear why would you even be in HoS? It's long, it's hard, it doesn't have that many badges. Heroic Nexus would be a better choice for badges.Also high end raid gear is not necessarily good for heroics. My paladin is geared for LONG fights, he's got 30k mana and I had to sacrifice a lot of spell power to get it. He sucks at healing heroics and honestly if the party wipes more than 2 or 3 times the cost of repairs have far out stripped the value of the badges. I do Naxx 10/25 and Ulduar 10 almost every week as possible on him.My shaman is friggin ez-mode healing compared to the paladin. I'm doing Naxx 10/25 a couple times a month to get him geared and then I will stop doing heroics on him as well. The cost/reward just doesn't make sense.
