    Default PvP: Insults you have to endure...

    I play Rift since beta and have always been a pvp healer, but since patch 1.8 I am often insulted by other players in the chat if it's not going well. I'm really sorry that I can no longer balance the stupidity (sorry again but that is the right word) of many players with healing.
    The point is that no matter what role you play, if it is not going well is it's always the cleric's fault.

    So... last time I joined as a shaman. With 15 to 2 kills something went wrong on our side. While waiting for resurrection:

    Chloro: Oh I love this DD clerics, dealing damage instead of healing.
    Warrior: They are so useless.
    Same Warrior: We would have won if you had healed stupid cleric!


    By the way, I killed one of the focus targets alone - one of two kills
    I usually build up a simple tent, make myself comfortable at spawn point and wait how they react on that


    What do you get to read in pvp chats if it's not going well and how do you react when they say it's your fault?

    Given the PuG nature of WF's it tends to bring out the selfish side of me so i do whatever i'm in the mood for on the day. Mostly that will be DPS and mostly I do very well. So of course I receive my fair share of abuse.

    When this happens the first I always do is look at thier gear, and this will usually lead to me replying that they are not worth healing anyway - ie not full pvp gear/sigil/weapons/bad spec. Because lets face it, in 1.8 damage inc is so high now, that unless your properly geared and specced you will explode and the time I waste on healing you i can explode one of them.

    If the guy is actually properly geared and is still an *****hole (very rare to see this) I'll genuinely apologise.

    Happens, I get grief sometimes when I tank too but yeah.

    I think the best is when i've put on "no reserve" tier 2 raid rifts and people that don't even know as much as me start getting lippy.

    As a cleric here, and after many years as a Priest in "that other game", I don't pay any attention to this anymore. If you don't heal, they complain. If you do heal, they complain. If they are terrible, it's not their fault. If they don't know the rules of the match, it's not their fault.

    News flash: people can be really awful and ignorant. Especially on the internet, with the anonymity it brings, people can be quite unpleasant. It has always been this way; you just have to ignore them. Don't let these kinds of people ruin your enjoyment.

    I get a lot of heal you "blankety", hole or I'll merc and smash your "blankety" face in. If you think that "blankety" fairy (miss spelt bad rift grammar) is gonna heal this raid you'd better get "blank!" out of here!

    Almost every wf and every time from a different warrior, hey one's even rage shouted at me for him dieing because of my epic stall war.

    What I do first is I simply show that my faerie has already outhealed the rest of the raid because she could actually be bothered.

    Then threaten to never heal them again.

    Then stop healing and let em die.

    If worst comes to worst I just duel em and show them the damage that I inflict and just how powerful dps clerics are!

    Usually it's just a case of ignoring them, then making a list and crossing them off when I kill em.

    Most of them are the ones that are naked warriors with big axes, mmmm look at that pain running through that mathosian man!

    Its just the nature of pug warfronts in this game. I find it funny when they complain about one thing...like oh our damage is terrible (usually a healer complaining) and sort by damage and we have the top 5 spots in damage or oh our healing is terrible (usually DPSer complaining) and sort by healing and we have top 2-3 spots in healing and hardly any kills. Its funny stuff!

    I usually don't respond to this as I just have a laugh to myself and keep going...all I PvP now for is the daily xp bonus so its not worth getting into it with some random guy who knows jack about the game.

    I have a macro where I say

    please do not flame me for having the best KDR, I am not responsible for how YOU play.

    it seems to infuriate people who always go out and go 10-10 then debate with me how they would some how be 26-1 if I pocket healed them and only them.
    i think im on ignore from half my shard because of my macros.

    I don't get a lot of it for some reason. Then again I'm usually the one complaining, "5 of you couldn't take 1 guy out in the time it took for their entire group to respawn and get back? Going DPS. or WTB DPS that can peel off the healer! Going DPS." It's gotta be annoying.

    If you want a healer so bad why don't you roll one up?

    It's been a long while since anyone has whined at me on my cleric. Last time was some @@@@ in pve gear whining about no healers with two icars and two chloro's in codex with 9 people on either side. Dude spent the whole time typing trash instead of playing. Usually it's the mouthbreathers whining, experienced players know that trash talking not only gaurantees no heals this WF, but none from that healer ever again.
    Kinda shocking when I'm on my mage and have switched to chloro because of no heals and ask for assistance... I get told to heal it myself by other mages and clerics. So, bit of ignorance both ways there.

    if I pulled down normal scores like 5-5 or 8-8 then you have every right to get on me about healing...
    but when you see ANYONE pulling down 20-1 and 55-4 type scores.... how do you have the NERVE to complain to them about healing!??!!?
    i honestly dont know whats gotten into people in this game.

    I'm usually inquisicar if we need healing, so I don't get the + next to my name.

    Baddies don't realize how much you can heal in a support spec.

    Baddies don't get heals.

    I usually just tell them that they're not worth healing and that I'll get more KBs and damage in my support heal spec. And I do.

    ya, my inquisicar spec, could lead in heals as its more built to tank and heal than it is to deal damage. but I have gotten flamed for not healing and then wound up toping all the opponents healers... only to be jeered "your just spamming aoe hots thats not real healing"
    while this is correct, im still healing more than those who are complaining.


    If you can get tripple my kill to death ratio.. and then say you need more healing... only then will i change roles to heal you. you have to TRIPPLE my KRD, not tripple my kills, my KDR and without a heal bot..
    I have a macro for that too, and yes I have changed roles to heal bot the FEW people who have done this.

    My normal response is: " Considering I don't even heal in raids what makes you think I am going to heal your sorry @ss?"
    I kill more players than anyone! Just ask the last raid that asked me to heal!!!!!

    I must be lucky, I haven't gotten thins problem before personally but have seen others get reamed for their healing. I normally heal in pvp, though sometimes I will dps since I also heal in pve and sometimes its nice to blow something up. I will say this, if you have a healer and they are genuinely trying, even if they suck for whatever reason why be rude? give them some tips and be grateful you have any healing at all imo.
