Sep 9th 2010 1:22PM Very strange article in contrast to your others which I have enjoyed...
First of all, to say that you only know two clickers has to be a misunderstanding or your cant know any amount of healers. Secondly, to say that the hardest role to pull off as a clicker is healing? How on earth did you reach that conclusion?
True that DPS and Tanking would be horrid as a clicker but as a healer? I play a paladin going between all three specs when I need to and while I tank with buttons, dps with buttons I heal with a single click.
I have played this game for a while, raided for just about the same amount of time and I know at least 50 healers (post and present) and 90% of them use the same setup. You move your mouse and click, once. Grid + Clique, nuff said!
Buttonmashing serves its purpose for cooldowns, judgements etc but I would not like to go to the length of actually selecting a target (means I can't target something else, like the boss), then pushing a button, to cast a heal.
