I never really healed in World or Warcraft,or any MMO after that…sure I flirted with it maybe healed for a few 5-mans on my pally in Wrath, or a few scenarios in WAR on my Zealot, but I never really seriously dedicated myself to the healing arts in these later games, and I’ll tell you why.
I’m sick of it, truth be told.
I played Dark Ages of Camelot for over 2 years, in that game I played a Cleric…I was everyone’s heal bitch. You think mages get alot of whispers for portals, that ain’t shit compared to the amount of rez tells I use to get in DAOC. Oh it wasn’t so in the beginning. I had an awesome Smite specced Cleric. Oh he rocked….then came a mighty nerf, and if you played Albion at all in DAOC in the beginning, I’m sure you heard of the almighty Smite Cleric Nerf.
*sigh* So be it, I’m a dedicated healer now. It was fun for a while…playing whack a mole with the green bars, then with my gear getting better, healing got easier. It got to the point where I could paint my nails while healing…not that I actually painted my nails…that was a metaphor…yeah a metaphor. Don’t get me wrong, it was nice being a Cleric, I was decent at what I did, and everybody liked me because I did my job, it just got well tedious.
The only real fun I had been in PvP, running around with the group. Watching the kill people, as I healed them, but then got tedious as well cause guess who was on the first to kill, or mezz list, yep me.
I was just tired of it….so when World of Warcraft came out in 2004, I decided to be a tank, and standing in the front lines this time and taking the hits.
Do I get the bug to heal, once in a while…tell you the truth, I still got the mad skillz at least in dungeons, raids I don’t know, but after a while it’s the same ole, same ole to me….an elaborate game of whack-a-mole with green bars.
