"Why can't they just HoT and be done with it? They don't think my heal is coming? All I'm doing is healing the tank.""I'm all for FoL spamming, and on fights where the tank only takes moderate damage and I'll I have to do is FoL spam, then with the short heal time, meters actually show the pally doing something useful.""Since dropping the hardcore guild (due to personal commitments) and going with newbies and pugs a lot more, heal-stomping has become a massive problem for my pally, esp. with the lack of HoTs."Expecting strict adherence to healing assignments might be a little too much to ask from your average PUG. As a healer I've often needed to adapt my style to mesh with the group I raid with, either in-guild or PUGged. If the tank can stay up with an assigned MT healer dropping big heals on them, that's fine. If the tank can stay up with all of the healers splitting their quicker heals between the tank and the rest of the raid, that's also fine. Typically the less organized the raid is, the more likely you'll see the latter situation with the healers.It shouldn't be that much of a problem, really. The newbs are usually too busy gloating over their damage meters to look at the healing ones. And even if they do, you still shouldn't be hearing any complaints. If they aren't dead, they have no reason to complain. If they are dead, they have no ability to complain. :)
