My paladin isnt very high level, only about 67. I went holy/prot to level quicker and have full pve heirlooms in both specs.
i heal with holy shock, and word of glory mostly, as nothing much else is needed. my holy shock usually covers the tanks entire health bar, but i still dont let it get that far. no one is ever below 80% health and i can handle big pulls which tanks seem to like (and so do i) at this level.
unless im stunned, feared, or otherwise unable to control my character, we are fine. more than fine. fantastic even.
so the one time i get feared and a tank dies (not the whole group, just the tank and 1 dps) and this is the first time someone has died on my watch since level 30 when i first got the healing spec...
someone is telling me im an idiot for dpsing.
with my judgement (for selfless healer talent.
crusaders strike (for holy power to use word of glory if i need to. i usually just use this to keep holy power UP while holy shock is on cd)
and my white melee attacks (which has a chance to heal me when i use seal of insight)
Im only lvl 67....am i doing this right? im pretty sure i am. who else goes through this? it drives me nuts. raaaaaaar.
