Re: Heal "Sniping"Part of what makes a great healer is knowing when they can spare a GCD and some mana to help out on other targets that aren't assigned.It's not the same as DoT-ing up Nefarian's adds just to pad meters. Any healing that's done is damage that has been taken and needs to be healed.If you're "sniping" heals from another healer, then either you're going to run out of mana using all those flash heals and cause people to die later on, or you're not going to run out of mana and then know that next time you can do with fewer healers. There should be no drama about "He's stealing my heals!" (If someone wants to come in and snipe my car payments, I'm not going to fuss about it.)A raid-healing resto druid that isn't keeping up Lifebloom isn't a very good resto druid. No matter what a resto shaman is doing during the Baleroc fight, they better have Earth Shield on the tank. When you have a coordinated healing group, knowing that healers are there to intelligently snipe each others' heals is part of understanding how best to collectively keep a raid group alive through silly amounts of damage.A healer running out of mana before the end of a fight is a problem. Nobody ever got healed to death, though.
