Healers have been kind of laughing at blizzard for demon soul. A lot of healers feel like rather than fix the issues with a few classes which have had issues for all of cata, they simply changed encounter design this tier to make those issues a non issue -- with what the healer community is a strong hope they plan to fix it for the next expac/mists. The time to make fundamental changes to a class do seem to be around the time of a new expansion as players expect to have to relearn their classes with the launch of a new expac as apposed to each patch, or they fall victim to the paladin treatment, or the DK treatment during most of wrath where every new patch meant completely relearning your tool kit.I think many healers keenly feel the balancing issue, more than DPS classes do. I say this because there are less of us, so our sins/faults don't hide as well in the pack as others do. We're often called upon to cover for the mistakes of others to some degree. One model which blizzard seems to have moved towards against players wishes over the years is the idea of shaving a healer for heroic content, to bring more DPS. While this is a boon for the DPS player, or the healer who also happens to be really good at dps.. it feels like this is more rare than it should be.Although it doesn't work one way without another. As many classes screaming for buffs are no doubt not really in need of buffs persay so much as current content has exposed a weakness in their ability that someone else excels at. It just depends on if blizz wants all classes to be equal or roughly equal. They're really not the same thing.
