Jul 23rd 2007 4:16PM If you're still in greens this far into BC, you don't really belong in a top-level raiding guild.
If you want to raid:
Go get some blues in instances and quest, and look for a guild more your level. There are always 'middle of the road' raiding guilds who will be more than happy to help an eager and attentive raider do what they want to do.
If you don't care much about raiding, and just want to hang out with your friend:
I hate to say it, but your friend dragged you into forever being a second-class citizen unless he's willing to go out on a limb for you and help you get geared up and up-to-speed.

If your goal is to get away from playing a healbot, in a game where healers are in high demand, do not roll a class that can heal.
It will save you and everyone you play with some frustration.
