@ElaI respect your position and applaud the pride with which you approach your role.However, by healing DPS who pull groups, you are reinforcing their negative behaviour. Firstly, they don't die from their mistake because you are healing them, and secondly, you are pulling aggro by healing, which takes aggro away from the offending DPS.As a tank, I detest DPS that pull for me. Once a group of mobs breaks formation, it is several times more difficult to get them all under control than if they aggro on me to begin with.Also, I am not a slow tank. If a DPS gets the opportunity to pull it is because there is either lag, a momentary RL distraction, or I am waiting for the healer to get mana. In none of those situations is a pull going to end very well.Healing DPS, when they pull before the tank is ready, encourages them to pull whenever the tank pauses. Keep in mind that the tank may be pausing for your mana, and that you may be encouraging the DPS to pull when you have no mana.
