She typically does better than what's in those logs, but she's not a chart topper. Between me and another holy pally we had, we were the strongest healers. Once Fenixdown joined it bumped her down further because he's also a very strong healer. Activity on that fight was low, she was not having a good night and not in the best of moods. You are correct there is more going on than what was presented.Well, obviously, there was more going on here. You said she typically does better than these last couple/few encounters. From reading people's comments on the parses, it just seems like her activity itself was low -- just not doing as much as she used to.
When she joined the raid team it was on her priest. At the start of MoP she wasn't happy with how priest healing was and requested to main switch to her shaman. This was before the recent priest buff that has improved their throughput. She is a good player, just not performing as well as she could on the shaman.If she was good enough to be part of your team up until this point, I'm sure she's well aware of how to play her spec. I mean, it's over with now (or at least actions have occurred, which may or may not be reversible) ... but maybe she was frustrated with some of the newer healers that have been brought on (assuming some were newer than her). Maybe she just got heal sniped a ton in a given night and she just felt ineffective, which led to frustration, which led to poor performance.
I didn't want her to leave nor did I have any intentions of replacing her. She rage quit in the middle of the fight after an argument with the GM over the healing.Maybe it's just because I, as the GM of the last 25-player guild on our shrinking server, don't have the luxury of being able to toss people out and replace them over one bad night/week, but I'd rather fix issues than step over them. But even beyond that, you say this person is a friend -- it's a bit shocking to me that you'd consider this person a friend but would be somewhat tone deaf with regard to seeing where she fits into all this as a person and not just a resto shaman.
As far as embarrassment that wasn't the case. We WERE a 10 man guild, and made the switch to 25 man approximately 3 weeks ago. She felt lost in the shuffle after the switch and wasn't really enjoying 25 man as much as 10 man. That's REALLY what is going on here. In turn it's affected the performance. However, this thread was more about the argument and settling that than her performance. I wanted to learn what she was talking about with regards to shaman mastery and the issues with overhealing.
