But Seriously it isn't that difficult. How do you think healers do it when they get attacked. Basically you are the healer if there is no healer (unless of course you don't like winning)
And If you do have a healer and hes getting trained, its your responsibility to help keep him alive. If a tank puts guard on you it's your responsibility to help keep him up.

You obviously have never played a madness Sorc against anyone with a whiff of skill. As a Sorc you tend to be target number one for most of the dps on the other team. Most of the time they assume you are a healer, but more importantly you are almost always the thing that falls to focus fire the fastest, at worst they will force you to retreat out of the fight. Madness has no bubble stun and suffers from lack of force very often if you are playing him right (i.e maximizing your damage) . We are deadly if ignored, I wont argue that. Our sustained damage is prefect for harassing healers or helping burst dps kill things faster. But having a class that is only great when ignored is rather unbalanced.

Using your weak bubble on anyone other than yourself is 99% of the time a waste of force, and a drop in your damage that is not outweighed by any minimal survivability it gives someone else. Are there times when I do use it to help someone? Yes. But this would be an exception not the rule. Madness sorc is more usefully killing than bubbling. A Lightning sorc is different because of bubble stun, but that is getting nerfed anyhow.

That's a 2.0 PTS LS spec video posted from another thread.

Full disclosure is always a good thing.

Personally looking forward to trying it out.
