In defense of the downvoted guy, he's complaining about getting picked to heal one dungeon specifically - Halls of Reflection on Heroic, the hardest 5-man in the game at the moment. Sure, you might be able to fly through them with your mains in raiding gear, but they are far harder than heroic UK or OK or HoL. This guy's resto gear might be good enough or even great for all the pre-3.2 Wrath heroics while still not being good enough for the four newest 5-mans, particularly the last and hardest of them.What this guy should do if he wants to use the LFD system is apologize and drop group if the system puts him in HHoR. Or maybe take one shot just to give the group a chance but drop group and apologize if they wipe. He has to wait 15 minutes to re-queue for a random, and they only have to wait for a better-geared healer to come along, and he still gets the stat bonus and ending award for using the LFD system when he does any other dungeon.HOWEVER, it's unfortunate at the very least, and arguably bad design on Blizzard's part, to put one really hard dungeon in randomly with all the rest. They could have done lots of things to prevent it. (Allow people to exclude dungeons from the random selection? Not putting people in the post-3.3 dungeons if they don't have pieces of T9 for their chosen role? Have a separate random selection that excludes the post-3.3 dungeons? Don't put HHoR in the random dungeon finder at all? Who knows. All options have problems, but there are options.) But as far as we can tell they have done nothing to address this issue, and the announced change to the vote-kick system would make it worse. That's not to say it's not worth doing overall, but still.All this is assuming that his healing gear is good enough for all other heroics except for HoR (let's say no greens, average ilvl 187+ at the very least). If it's not, then yeah, he is the problem and shouldn't be queueing to heal.
