If you win, thank the DPS. If you lose, blame the healer.

Maybe some healers are that way. There are always a few bad apples, but most healers enjoy the support role which implies team work. I find I get more 'tude from the Rambo go-it-alone types who never look behind their shoulder for their healers -- never mind giving peals -- who constantly break line of sight in the middle of heals, and replace what they lack in situational awareness with target fixation.

I'm sorry that healer was a dick. I play almost exclusively healer classes and if anything I kiss the floor my tank walks on. Tank is just as important as healers. I give my mvp to good tanks over good heals. Don't ever want them to stop rolling. xD

I'm in no way, shape, or form trying to justify the behavior, but it is sort of understandable to me. When I heal, it's not at all uncommon for me to get whispers after warzones, thanking me for the heals, telling me I did an incredible job, and so on. Not that I don't appreciate the flattery, but it's always struck me as weird; I don't get whispers like that when I tank or dps, just when I heal, and I think that's probably pretty common. Everyone apparently wants a pocket healer. Not hard to see why some people might develop a complex about it.

We have arrogant healers on my server too. (Like one who sees imaginary people when in reality they were killed solo ) Probably everywhere. That's why I play watchman, I don't like to rely on others to keep me alive. When I do have a good healer who wants to group with me though, I'll usually switch to one of the burstier specs.

In your case clearly the healer doesn't understand that a tanks job isn't to do damage, but keep the healer alive. Your healer had it in reverse. Especially if you were in full tank gear, there's no way your dps is going to be good. You throw taunts and annoy other players/peel. We have tanks on our server who like to think they are dps, and they lose matches for us. I'd rather have a player like you who knew his role.

I play a healer and Im never like at all Im sorry you encoutered a healer with such a bad attitude a WZ "TEAM" wins with a team effort tank heals and dps I wish I was able to heal as much as DPS was able to dish out as I was pre 1.2 but with 11% less boost to heals for an unknown reason (balanceing apparently) hmmph #*#!*! Im able to barely heal 5k max when I can be hit for 5-7k most of the time (is that balanced damage vs heals) And im fully WH geared Sawbones.

That is Because with out healers the other players would not get kills or most likely win the match at all but we still have to endure a 11% NERF with the expertise boost diference between damage vs heals I dont care about the damage reduction couldnt care less DAMAGE and HEALS deserve to be equal boosts or just delete expertise all together cause it isnt fair that a DPS can out damage heals bye as much as they are (full WH gear) 5k heals VS 5-7k damage

People who judge only off of healing and damage output are morons. If the player is using their CC or even cleansing for example, they're going to be dumping 1 of 5 globals (at least) doing things that don't even show up on the scoreboard. I wouldn't worry about it heh. Tanking is probably the most important and hardest thing in this game.

Healing is easy (in a sense that it has a low skill cap to be effective). Tanking has to multi target constantly for taunts and CC which is a nightmare with this targetting system, not to mention target their teammates to switch guard and intercede. A healer can stare at health bars, stand in the open with guard on, have no real awareness of what is going on and still pull high healing numbers.
