Jan 21st 2012 10:05AM When starting out the best advice is to worry about just keeping people alive. I know the article goes against that but it's really for people who are beyond where you are at this point in your healing journey. Like Matt said earlier in the article for people that are new to raid healing just focus on keeping your target alive. In heroics do the same. Focus on getting to know your spells and when to use them. Once you get used to the tools you have and obtain better gear you'll find it easier to do and then you can focus on things like cooldown usage timings and the "cool" stuff. Shaman are easier in this respect because there aren't a host of cooldowns to learn but when it's all new it's still a bit intimidating. My advice would be to run heroics until you're comfortable and then move on to LFR.

Jan 23rd 2010 6:47PM I think some of you are underestimating how long it takes to hire someone for what is a corporate position. Even after applications are no longer accepted it can take MONTHS in some instances for the companies to hire someone. In the meantime the work still needs to get done so someone already working on the site is a no-brainer.
Instead of assuming they haven't hired anyone who has applied why don't we take a step back and chill. Last time there were new hires there was a post introducing them. I would think they would do the same thing this time but if I'm mistaken I'm sure someone will let me know. So, again, chill and don't always assume the worst.
