    Default Why do some of you refuse to heal?

    Clerics, mages, and even rogue im looking at you.

    I get it. You rolled shaman because you liked the idea of a durable melee DPS class. I get it. You dont want your role to be a healer you want to blow stuff up on your pyromancer.

    And 99% of the time i have no argument with that and fully support you in playing whatever you want.

    BUT

    When there are 4 of us doing a minor rift and we have no healers, and that stage 5 elite boss comes out, why wont you switch to heals so we can just finish the damn rift and go home? Just switch to heals for FIFTEEN SECONDS and we win.

    I know. You hate icky healing. I get it. But guess what i hate? DYING NEEDLESSLY.

    FFS the versatility of the soul system is there to allow you to switch between EVERYTHING a given calling can do not just choose one aspect and stick to it no matter what.

    Nobody is asking you to switch to heals forever. Just press N, slick on role 2 where your healing spec is, click activate, heal for 15 seconds, then switch back and continue to mindlessly smash things with your mace.

    Why is that too much to ask?

    Healer is probably going for gold contribution to rifts, same as you.

    Lots of threads about contributions to rifts needing a change.

    Its because the healers gain more "contribution ranking" by spamming instant cast abilities

    I'm not a healer, but that IS why its happening. Theres a 15 page thread on it

    The only way you have the right to make this gripe, is if you yourself are making a healer to bring to Rifts. Otherwise, you're the soul of hypocrisy.

    For the record, I am a main healing cleric, so if I wanted, I could ***** about this. But luckily, when I tank role it, I have no issues.

    If you don't like it, roll a healer. Or maybe they are healing...just not you.

    Nope, they don't want to lose out on the good loot by healing. I can't say that I blame them. I am lucky enough to be able to do my role in a rift and still get gold on the meter. Healers can't say the same.

    As far as rogue (bard), I don't play cleric or mage, it is kind of hard not to heal if you are attacking anything. But, they aren't big individual heals, they are group, raid heals...lots of little points for lots of people.
