This would have been an interesting article to read if it wasn't for that terribly thought-out 'gosspy blonde' joke. Yes, as a healer I do tend to pay attention to a myriad of different aspects of the fight and yes I may point out issues when they arise.But I am not a gossipy blond just WAITING to be asked so I can dish out all the little problems I noticed, nor do I as a healer or reader appreciate the insinuation that this is what healers (or any class role for that matter) do.

I really don't know why it is that big of a deal that they used the gossipy blonde analogy. I know quite a few healers that ARE exactly like that. They will tell you all of the information as if they have been waiting for hours for you to ask the question. It is true.@RobJust because you aren't this way, and I am not this way, doesn't mean that the analogy doesn't hold true for most, which is what I am sure the article was intending to say. It really was a harmless analogy in my opinion.

It was just a joke. I play healers of all classes, healing is what I do in the game...I wasn't at all offended, I thought it was funny. I also am not waiting to blame others, in fact I'm usually prone to blaming myself for wipes to an almost irrational extent. However, healers do tend to have the best "group awareness" (that is, what's going on with everyone else in the group) than other raiders of other roles, in my experience, because the group is their responsibility by and large. Tyler made an amusing and mock-insulting analogy to express that. It spices things up a little, IMO.

The healer chat channel can be quiet, but if some dps decides he really feels like tanking on this fight, just because, that can stir up a serious hornet's nest. That's when the real "healer sniping" comes out.

I would hate to go to a comedy gig with you.
