I've played a healing priest as my main toon since Molten Core, and I'm having my hardest time ever right now:- there's new spells and a new theoretical gameplay to learn and master- there's new fights to learn- there's an unprecedented amount of damage on the raid, especially with DPSers that still haven't gotten that minimizing incoming damage in now one of their duties- I'm taking more damage than ever, and must move more than ever (which is hard as a healer in general since we're not looking at our own toon all the time, and as a priest specifically, since priest suck at healing on the move)When I compare that game experience to my DPS toons (hunt, warlock , rogue) or even my healing druid, it's significantly harder, even stressful to the point of being no fun.Trying to think of things to make it better for me:- Make Chakra a permanent aura that I just set once and for all, and that doesn't drop at the worst time, and take 2-3 GCDs to re-set.- Gimme a bit more mobile healing, maybe by changing Inner Focus to a "mobile healing" cooldown. 15s every 2 mins ?- Make healers in general take less damage than DPSers. Hunters' pets take only 10% of AOE damage because it's sooooo hard to manage ONE pet... Why are healers expected to handle 10/25 raiders, and be as aware of what's going on as DPSers ?
