Flexing the Healer Epeen?
Okie, I am a healer, and I admit to checking my Skada and the WoL meters occasionally, but really the numbers seem to mean little in the long run:
- I am the only Resto Shaman in our 25man. Who am I going to compare myself to? The Priests? The Pallies? And please do not compare me to Juv! 😉
- Is not the healer philosophy “As long as everyone is alive, the healing team is doing there job”?
So I will be the first to admit, this makes zero sense to me: Effraeti’s Epeen
Are lower numbers better?
If those “DPS” numbers are really my HPS numbers, then I suppose it makes some sense, but those numbers sure seem low compared to what I usually see…
I understand I am lower than I would like to be on Heroic Yor’sahj, because I usually only have myself and two others to heal (the tank healer and the random fifth person in the tank group).
I understand I am lower than I would like to be on Heroic Hagara because the raid is spread way out most of the fight. Hard to get a good Chain Heal or Healing Rain on enough people to make it worthwhile. Frost phases are about all that save me in that fight. heh
I understand I am lower than I would like to be on Heroic Morchok, because I only have half the raid to work with, and they are usually spread out for a fight I thought was about stacking. I am usually rubbing elbows with our bear tank, Ariano that whole fight.
Now Heroic Ultraxion is one of the fights I can really shine on. (Ironic that it is the one I am usually asked to DPS.) Everyone is stacked, so all my abilities are utilized to their fullest. And of course, there is the awesome Ysera buff that only I seem to like. Everyone else can bicker over the other buffs. heh
I think my numbers are good… Does anyone else know how to read this thing??
