I'm convinced, and a few others have mentioned the same thing, that the people who need to know this just don't read.You'd be surprised how many pugs I've gone into where it's obvious that the players have no clue that this isn't Wrath anymore. How have they managed to go 1 1/2 years ignoring all the information on class changes (including their own), instance changes, and (for me the most frustrating), changes to healer mana pools?Every single pug, without fail, has had at least half of its members stand there between pulls while I'm drinking and eating to get my mana and health back. When I tell them to eat they respond that they don't carry food. They don't carry bandages. They don't have health pots. The warlock either doesn't put up a soul well or the players don't use them. They stand there, half health, and expect me to jump up and heal them.I actually had a tank tell me the other day, "I'm not healing myself between pulls, that's YOUR job." Tank, I don't even waste mana on myself between pulls. I carry food. I've actually started to use lifeblood on myself when things get too hairy. I'm even maxing my bandaging, so at least I can throw a bandage on people when my mana bar is empty and I'm praying for an OoC proc.But the people who need to know this seem to have spent the last year in la-la-land. All they know or care about Cata is the cool mounts and cool new achieves and showing off their huge ugly proto-drakes in the middle of Orgrimmar. It's no joke. I'm performing miracles, pulling mana out of nowhere, to keep the tank alive at least, only to have dps complain that I'm being stingy with their heals. Sigh. But you know what? I love healing. I will never play another role. I was born to be a druid healer, and I intend to be just as amazing at it with its new restrictions as I was before.
