    Healers Have To Die Addon Banned Please!!!

    Hello I am a healer from who enjoys the occasional battleground and Rated battleground but since this addon has been available it makes it even more difficult to enjoy pvp. Granted it really isn't hard to spot out the healers when you are in battlegrounds but do people really need the unfair advantage of a constant healing icon above healers? I just don't understand how blizzard can allow this addon. Although no it doesn't break any of the gaming rules, i think most healers would agree that it takes a lot of the joy out of casual pvp for them. I would love to get a blue's response on this topic since i have yet to see a response as to how they are allowing this addon to exist.

    Thanks

    Heck they should do the opposite. They should give everybody this addon. It's impossible to win a twin peaks with 2 holy paladins running around and no one hitting them. Also blue's won't respond on mmo-champion.

    Just use the addon to kill the opposing healers first, and you'll be fine. The addon will stay mate, since banning it, would probably mean banning all addons that interact with nameplates, and that's not gonna happen.

    This is a fansite, not the official WoW forums, so you ain't getting a blue response.
    Also, no it doesn't give a unfair advantage.

    Well blues don't exist on MMO-C so you might want to check the real bliz forums. Everyone dies in pvp also, IT'S THE FREAKING POINT!

    First time I've heard of this add on. Don't see how it'd be an issue if you have add ons like DBM auto marking what to kill on fights like Lei Shi (even if the targets they mark are less than ideal...).

    I doubt you'll be getting a blue response here!

    Why do you assume everyone targeting you is only doing so because of an addon? It's more than possible that they looked through your team roster before the game started, or simply have basic observational skills. I agree it's disgusting that this addon exists, but only because that means someone decided they needed a nameplate marker to notice healers. Unless you just stare at your action bars it's really obvious who's a healer. Someone that wouldn't have noticed me without a bullseye above my head has zero chance of killing me anyway.

    Welcome to World of Warcraft--where tanks are dps, dps are healers, and healers are tanks.

    You can't just turret like you're fighting a dragon. Keeping yourself alive or out of CC is most of what PvP healing is.

    do you realize the percentage of people that have targetted you because healers have to die? i promise you it is less then 1%. i use healers have to die, but in bgs its easier to just find the healer. if you are playing with me it helps you out because the only thing i find that addon useful for is when someone is targetting you.

    this addon is awfully close to those interacting addons that got banned in patch 3.3.5 in that they alter game play in a way that wrecks the game

    I like this addon, even when playing as a healer. It helps you improve your skills when tanking a bunch of bads. Also, bgtargets is a far superior addon to hhtd.

    I don't need addon to find a healer in bg. so, addon or not, you are my primary target. you whine because you are focused in BG, but this is not the addon fault! those who use it already want to jump on healer first. if not, I don't know why they would use it ....

    "I guess my main problem is that i signed up to heal not to tank in pvp's"

    so you want people to leave you alone while you heal in pvp? what's next? a blowjob and my HK on a silver plateau??

    lol ...... -_-'

    If this "wrecks the game" - Deadly boss mods destroys it.

    As dps, I check through the enemy roster before a bg starts and remember the name/class of the healer. They are always my main target even if its a suicide run!
    As a healer myself, I ask to be raid marked and /w to a couple of the geared dps that I can keep them all alive if they protect me. Mages using rof and warriors intervening usually keeps alot of pressure off me.

    Those are actually some great tips, haven't thought of marking myself tbh. thanks

    This addon is nothing like AVRE was... It doesn't draw shapes on the screen, just adds a marker above the healers heads, which identifies them through their current spec.

    Even without the addon, it's easy to tell who healers are by looking at the scoreboard.

    I know it's annoying as a healer to be constantly focused (I play a disc priest myself) but that is what pvp is about. Friendlies should help you and you can also take advantage of the addon. I use it to cc/dispel/pressure enemy healers.

    Honestly if you can't pick out a healer in a BG without this addon you need to stop playing. When I used to do group bg's the leader made everyone dl this addon, it's pointless if you know what you are doing. I deleted it after one BG because it's not needed and I hated both the sounds it made and the stupid icons it made.

    He's not asking for a "free pass" hes asking for people who cant manage to pay attentin to the healer insted of training the warrior dont get a big red cross telling them who to kill. He is right in the fact that it is a bit unfair to healers. I miss the days of being able to either stand right in the middle of the action and not get targeted and just heal while my team wrecked, or stand 10yards behind them and only have to worry about the occasional rogue, and if it wasnt for this addon I'd still be able to do just that without much of a worry.


    Also, do you not understand the point of pvp? This addon is for terrible midfield heros who cant manage to pay enough attention to whats going on around them to pick out the healers on their own.

    I always target healers in pvp anyway but ty for the info I will download this addon,sometimes you spend a ridiculous amount of time looking for that healer,clicking on stuff here and there...an icon would be serious help.
