Yesterday my guild started working on Animus in 25hc mode and i think i've finally reached a point where it was physically impossible to squeeze anything more from my class (like i did in every other encounter in the past) in order to make it viable. I'm usually pretty cool about my class being missed out on the blues and stuff but i guess the frustration gathering throughout the expansion just had to burst eventually. I am sick with blizzard telling me that my spec is "just fine" because it's clearly not when i'm working thrice as hard as other healers and i cannot even get anywhere near them. I didn't want to be considered a mana totem so i didn't go for full spirit and it worked quite well for half of the content. Restoration isn't okay. It's terrible, and i want to state it very clearly so im bolding the shit out of the next statement.
Restoration throughput is where it should be, however the healing toolkit is severely lacking spread healing tools.
My rage thread got banned from the official forums in less than half of an hour ;D. So to sum up: Healing rain is a terrible spell. It's like a chain with a ball. Chain heal is not quite as bad but it's crying with tears of blood for buffs to the jump range or an entire overhaul of the spell. Usually even if you manage to get 5-10 ppl standing it seems like the spell is doing fine. And i'd like to stress out the word "standing" because on primordius they simply walk out of the stupid circle. Hah but Primordius was an intersection between maegera and HELL. The real hell begins when you start healing animus. It's a fucking nightmare. You can't get more than 2-4 ppl in your healing rain. Even if you do they will probably move out in a mere moment. Chain heal - don't even bother it's terrible there. So to sum up: Our two, most powerful, core, healing spells are useless. Riptide has become somewhat obsolete since heart of fear. It's still useful as a instant healing spell so if you put the glyph on you get uhh something like a rejuvenation cast when your gear is broken? What makes up for 40 % of our healing is simply totems and cooldowns, whilst monk is just pressing uplift and spamming renewing mist (frustration LEVEL UP!)\
Help me out here, i like pouring champagne on motherfuckers from my guild it's just becoming so awkward, obsolete and useless. Don't bother with the "we bring utility and mana tide" cause i don't care anymore. I don't even find any other classes interesting enough to reroll so i might just as well quit.
Don't bother answering if you haven't read the ENTIRE post.
