I leveled a Resto Druid as my second 90 in MoP. I had started from 0 once all my reps were finished and there was really nothing much to do on my main toon (a Blood DK).
I leveled as Balance since I had never made a caster before and grew to love the gameplay of it; however, I knew that in the end I was not going to play a DPS druid. I wanted to heal. And so I did.
I reached 90 relatively quickly (well for me at least) and began healing heroics and LFRs. This was not my first time healing since I had done plenty of healing as I leveled through the LFM feature. I was already aware that Druid healing involved mastering HoTs and was much less dependent on direct heals than other classes. But it wasn't until I started to raid heal that I realized that this wasn't for everyone.
Not sure if any of you have abandoned your druid healer for this reason but I just couldn't take it anymore. I felt angry when I needed several large heals but just couldn't deliver them consistently. It bothered me to the point where I said "Forget this" and never played it again. I bought a full Mail BoA set and created a Shaman instead which I have leveled almost exclusively by healing dungeons. The change of gameplay was quite noticeable and I really love Shaman healing. Just looking at my Druid makes me cringe at this point.
I know there are people that love the idea of HoT management but I just couldn't deal with it. For those of you that still do Druid healing, would you prefer to see more direct heal capability?
