I did have a healer once who thought he was a dps and I mean really thought he was a dps. He was a sage as and a self proclaimed "great" healer. Yet, he would start the pulls and run into the fray healing himself as he went. He also would speed ahead to scout areas, sound familiar?
Thats awesome, Im a healer and wonder what would be said in a group if I only healed myself LOL I think I shall try it one day!
