My Affliction lock will always be my mine but I've also been gearing up a Holy Paladin and I'm with you all the way.I've never encountered anything but Destro locks running random heroics and it's about a 50-50 split between people who know when to tap and how much, and the guy who taps five or six times to get his mana back to full and his health down to 2k right as the tank pulls the first pack on the ramp after Krick & Ick in POS HC. Please don't be that guy - if the tank is taking hits from four mobs at once and the rogue is standing in the AOE, they're going to get heals before you.That doesn't mean "the lock won't get healed because he annoys me", it just means priorities that need juggling by a single target healer (well, double with Beacon) and you should at least be very careful to not take aggro on anything while two or more players are taking damage.Sadly those life taps often lead to a rain of fire before the Prot Warrior has a chance to build up enough aggro, and the ensuing mess is the healer's fault.Most players who understand class mechanics understand that warlocks need to life tap to gain mana from health. You don't always need a full mana bar on every fight - better to tap once every 10-20 seconds than keep your mana topped up at the expense of your health and the healer's sanity.
