The OP isn't a healer then .....My GF is our main priest in WoW, and though we're not burning down server/world firsts, we're no slouches either.... all she gets to look at are raid frames during an encounter....

And then have the focus away from what is actually happening to watch the far left edge of the screen?


Im guessing half the players who were willing to heal will bail on boring and broken healing quickly leaving the community needing healers badly.
So healing is broken because you have to look at bars the whole time? How is this different from any other MMO?

(recognize this is probably troll bait but... meh)

Another player who has become too dependent on mods to hand hold them through healing.

In EverQuest I sat, facing a wall, with my spellbook open, only casting one or two healing spells every now and again, for hours at a time.

THIS is not broken. THIS is a god send compared to that.

I haven't been able to check yet, but you used to be able to unlock the raid frames and move them. Won't solve all your problems, but won't have to stare at the left side of your screen.

Playing "How Low Can You Go" with the tank's health is fun too.

My wife used to raid heal in WoW. She never knew what was going on because all she did was watch health bars and occasionally move out of bad stuff. Comes with the role.
Who, me? I'm nobody.

As long as their spells restore health, true healers will find a way to keep the raid alive. Well... the members of the raid we like that is.

I guess you don't play with Nameplates on. That show people's health hovering over their character so you don't have to stare at party frames or operation frames.

Keep raging. One less incompetent healer I have to deal with when I am crazy enough to PUG.
