Blog Azeroth shared topic: When should Healer let folks die in the fire?
Ha! All the time. First mistake is free, the next one the dps should burn. Let’em use bandages.
The context I’m imagining is a random PUG five man normal or heroic at any level, but feel free to answer in any way that moves you
I think the content of a 5 man should be so well known, and so over geared by most folks that standing in the fire is not an issue. That is to say, the content can be done even with the idiot standing there, so no real issue; not at all that the person should stand there without feeling like a fool though.
Applying a rule that everyone gets one chance to be a moron; the first mistake is ok and totally forgiven. But the second time they should at the very least apologise for the mistake, and not keep doing it.
Third time I’d be happy for a Hunter or Rogue to MD to them constantly so they quit the group.
An example – In AN “pound” by the last boss is something that used to kill Tanks. Now a tank can pretty much be healed through it, but it still kills dps. This is ok and the way it should be.
If the Tank didn’t move because they were doing something else, then that is ok too, but generally the Tank should know better and should have moved. The Damn dps who do that deserve all they get, and should not be a priority in healing. Period.
Have a great raid, and I’ll leave you with some inspiring words: Give a man fire and he’s warm for a day, set a man on fire and he’s warm for the rest of his life.
When I’m healing sometimes I don’t mind if the dps are tanking. It gives me something to do.
I prefer melee tanking as at least then the adds aren’t running around all over the place.
If, however, it’s an instance that the group don’t massively outgear (HoR maybe) then it can be a pain in the butt.
I hadn’t really thought about it like this, but I tend to act in terms of three strikes as well. I just don’t care enough to heal someone who is deliberately making the same mistakes over and over. Thanks for responding!
