Regarding healing meters, "and people’s obsession with them for performance."I hate this. Loathe even.And I've seen too many people who blog about healing emphasize this aspect of the game. I'm tired of seeing guides or articles that suggest players do this or do that to inflate their numbers. I'm equally tired of seeing articles that imply healing is a competition. But this is a problem that Blizzard has created.When they announced that they were changing the healing mechanics a lot of people complained because healing required more effort. So now nearing the end of the expansion we see that inflation has minimized Blizzard's intended goal, which they've had to give up because it was "too hard".I'm not a very good Resto Druid. Not by a long shot, so for the most part I don't. The thing is, there's no incentive to get better. I can do my job as a crappy Resto Druid because the numbers are so op. But improving myself as a Resto Druid wouldn't mean much.Playing other classes as a healer means you can actually see your improvement as you become more competent with the given mechanics. And that's not just meters. This just isn't the case with Druids and it's a little disheartening to be honest.
