A post on the World of Warcraft

The Healer Tax

“True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.”
Kurt Vonnegut


Mass Resurrection: Gone!

Mass-resurrect your party with Failure Detection Pylon. In Legion, only healers can mass-resurrect.

As an Engineer, the Failure Detection Pylon will be a handy toy. A bit like the Monk tank who can put some kind of statue out in the hallway to reset the boss, it has it’s own unique flavor.

As a Healer, I am one very unhappy camper. If we wipe in a raid or dungeon, I will be the one trudging back. My old raid leader called it the Walk of Shame and made everyone walk back but you know and I know that in general, everyone will take a break while I have to run, run, run back to resurrect everyone.

It is as if, by extension, that it is the Healer’s fault that we wiped and has to pay the punishment fee by walking back. I am unhappy, I thought that we were all in this together.

I read a lot about WoW on many sites. No one has talked about how guilds are being ignored in Legion. It is fucked up and I don’t like it. I think the designers at Blizzard are making a mistake. Adding social media does not make an equal correlation to having a supported robust guild support system.

Go ahead and relax, I’ll run back to rez you. /dbm break 4

One thought on “The Healer Tax

  1. I wonder if the constriction of resurrection is due to the flavor of the classes. Why are hunters mass resurrecting anyway? Healers should be the ones who bring us back to life, it’s his or her special magic.

    I am with you on guilds… /sigh.
