This very evening, I played in two heroics on my Druid.
We did Violet Hold, and Culling of Stratholme.
The healing in these two runs was simply awesome!
Oh, wait… you misunderstand.
*I* wasn’t healing.
No, it was Cassie on her level 80 Paladin. 🙂
Her first time ever as a healer, and she healed my bear butt through two heroics back to back, and the gauntlet of Culling of Stratholme went flawlessly.
One thing you have to admit, Healers have the most intense trial by fire of any class.
As a DPS, you’re learning your role as you level. As a tank, you can still DPS well enough to go full on tanking solo on multiple mobs and see how well you survive and manage them.
As a Healer, you pretty much have to grab some suckers and convince them to let you try and keep them alive and see how it goes.
First time you develop and fiddle with your Healing skills is with an audience… a very captive, attentive audience.
You did wonderful, dear. Congratulations on kicking ass!
Or healing butt, as the case may be.
