    Pets are low priority, and pet classes can use abilities to heal them, but if you aren't doing it out of laziness then there's a problem. Healing your pet is a DPS loss for any class that uses a pet.

    Hunters have it the easiest with Mend Pet.
    Warlocks have to channel a spell, and have defensive cooldowns that drain 50% of their pet's health, Health Funnel is a big DPS loss.
    Frost Mages have to cast frost bolt at their pet to heal it.
    Death Knights can summon a new one so frequently it doesn't matter as much.

    There's so much aoe damage this tier in 25 man, I can't even managing using a heal on any of the pets in my raid. I don't even bother having them on my bars, I would rather atonement the boss over spending a heal on a pet.

    Of course it is. That pet is just as much part of the raid as you are! Healers who don't heal pets are just plain a) bad or b) lazy or c) both!

    Back this up with anything but your personal opinion and I'll offer a proper rebuttal, as I promise I have a few in mind.

    Are you fucking serious? If you want to do your best to keep the raid strong, you use your class-given abilities to keep your own pet alive. If you want to whine about whose job it is, you have no right in a raid.


    See how that works?

    I will heal specific pet only if his owner asks for it. Because I don't have any place for pets on my bars, and anyway pets are just fine with all that AE heals.
    Focus healing of pet is totally possible ONLY if pet is doing something specific connected with our boss kill tactics.
    Bullshit about 1% boss and wipe is bullshit. Even if your healer was focus healing somebody's pet, he wouldn't heal real person instead and you'll end up wiping at much more than 1%.

    I see how u think it works, but i still heal the pets that need healing because it helps the raid, so no, i guess i dont see how "that" works.

    If my aoe heals are not enough to keep the pet up then it dies. I will not heal a pet unless that pet is the tank for that event. If a person is upset about that, who cares.

    As a warlock, I expect healers to heal my pet. Keeping a pet alive is as much a healers job as the owners. Other players are prioritized over pets, but when no one is in need of healing and I see pets dying, the healers ain't doing their job.
    The last time a healer in my guild refused not to heal pets, I gave him the option to either not raid with us, or to come and also heal pets. His decision was quickly made, hehe.

    Hunter pets, yeah. Not Warlock pets because I believe they can summon one rather quickly. Hunters would have to stop to res.

    Well Warlocks sacrifice their demons 90% of the time and don't hunter pets have a -90% AoE damage passive? And don't pet classes have a heal for them? And in case they die, they can instantly revive them on a CD? Should be enough.

    A healer shouldn't have to. Sure, he can if he has time/mana, but it shouldn't be required.

    I don't even have pet bars displayed in my UI.

    "That" in my statement was used to point out how the wording of your extremely forward statement does nothing but distract you from the fact that its your opinion.

    See, if I'm a rogue and I feel as though its the tank's job to keep the mob still, I can't just sit there going "Dude, you moved. My dot fell off!!" No, it's my job to be aware enough to move with him and reapply the dots when necessary.

    If a hunter/lock/whatever notices his pet's health is low, it's also his job to sacrifice a little DPS to keep the pet up for the greater good. The healer's mana is limited and should always be reserved for the people who can't keep themselves alive, even if mana is a non-issue. The pets, however HAVE the ability to be kept alive by the very classes that control them, making it a class mechanic.

    Use your class mechanics and do your job.

    If I roll a healer, is it my job to make sure everone is alive? Yes
    If I roll a DPS, is it my job to make sure I DPS down everyting? Yes
    If I roll a Tank, is it my job to make sure I grab aggro of everyone? Yes

    OP - Yes. Let's even pretend healing pets is a hard job with the 90% aoe dmg reduction..

    If I roll a pet class, is it my job to manage and maintain that pet as a priority to upkeep my classes performance? Yes.

    I play holy paladin. The only time I heal pets is when I happen to notice them almost dead the healing will bounce to the tank anyway. But even then im more likely to denounce, lol

    My decision would have been not raiding with you. I heal, I don't make up for the laziness of other people.

    If they want to bring pets - fine... just don't expect my mana to go their way.
    Well then expect to lose a good darn 5% crit, mastery or w/e the pet has to offer because you couldn't waste 1% mana throughout the whole raid encounter to keep him up. Basically you just made your group lose loads of DPS.

    No, every class that has a pet has tools to manage their health. When I'm healing I might throw out a heal to a pet here or there if there is absolutely no one else to heal.
