Thram,I didn't mention anywhere in the scenario that stopping the Incinerate would have prevented a death. Normally backlashed Incinerates don't cause instagibs.A general rule of thumb is that if your team is in a losing position, you should Counterspell enemy spell DPS instead of heals. I went over this in a previous article.However, the scenario you are presenting is debatable. I'd gladly trade one of my healers for an opposing healer if we have more caster DPS (and are just as skilled as the other team or more so). Especially on 4 DPS teams, trades are inevitable (however, healers on 4 DPS teams are rarely at danger).Sometimes making a sacrifice is the best thing to do for your team. Occasionally in 2v2 on a double DPS team, using your very low-health teammate as a sacrifice (bait for position) is the best way to win the game.C. Christian MooreContributing EditorWoW.com
