    I dont see the issue, if you wipe and they refuse to respec back then kick but why force all to be in heal spec just because they signed as it? Personaly I find 6 healers overkill even with 6 shitty ones on most fights. DPS signing as healer usually mean lower queue time for all and faster boss kills.

    Personaly I love when the 2nd tank goes dps so I can solo tank LFR as it bloody boring to tank switch when there is absolutely no need on majority of fights..

    I'd suggest next time calling them out in public if you don't feel like solo-healing. Or putting out a warning to everyone that if people die it's because Notrealhealz, InohealU, etc. change speced to dps and if you catch it before the start of the fight perhaps the group will be smart enough to pressure those into changing back to healing spec, but that's assuming it's w/ an intelligent crowd...nm, LFR.

    only if people do the fight right. There are plenty of derp healers in LFR, and lots of people who don't follow encounter mechanics, especially in the pre-ToT LFR wings. My 474 healer busts her ass through half of the raid not standing in the bubbles for Vizier, nobody knowing the dance on Will, Garalon crushing every 15 sec or so, an empty sunbeam on Tsulong, etc. And my co-healers include a druid that seems to tranq when there isn't any damage coming out, a pally with mostly ret gear, and someone who is DPS and wanted a fast queue.

    Although LFR Sha of Fear is really freaking dull.

    Durumu on looking for raid is so boring as a healer since there is ZERO dmg to heal with 2 tanks and 6 healers, and now your crying that you acutally get to heal as a healer?...

    Do you like to get carried through normal modes too, doing as little as possible so everyone else picks up the slack, or are you just an asshole in LFR?
    No. I care about my raids. I only care about what will get me through LFR in the least amount of time possible. Generally that's by me DPSing if I'm on my priest, because DPS in LFR is shit, since the players are mostly shit.

    Then as far as I'm concerned, you can queue as DPS and then DPS.

    Raids are never in danger of "not meeting enrage timer." They are, however, in danger of having the tanks drop flat, or healers going OOM and having people get raid damaged down, or having a team of weak healers and being one short of surviving. It's happened before, and I'm sure it'll continue happening into the future.

    You queue as a heals for the shorter times and then DPS because the game lets you? I'll kick you from LFR for doing that, because the game lets me.

    I hate it when I queue for DPS, wait for 30+ minutes for my LFR and then I have to go heals because the healers are so bad, even after we have kicked and gotten a few new ones, just so we can finish the stupid raid.

    and how are you going to do that with priest healers? or dps who have 2 dps spec? i'm sick of people saying aah blizzar should just do this to fix it.

    but did you even bother to think about it more then the ten seconds about it?

    its not as easy as you make out of it. like they have said many times alot of sugestions are great but they are not beable to add them to the game.

    if you think you can. then head over to there job section. if not just shut up.

    Stop making these posts about wanting to slack u get faster to the finish line by having some more dps. Hate the whine post about ppl have to do something in lfr. If u dont want to do anything play a none mmo please.

    btw Durumu is just waste of time being healer spec on, there is absolutely nothing to heal. Blizz should set the healers required in lfr 4 or 5, instead of 6 cause there is no boss u can 2 man heal with som decent healers tbh.

    I was healing LFR the other day and we wiped on Primordius, to the enrage timer. I kid you not. It wasn't even a case of too many dead, there were 25 alive when he went mental on us. I didn't believe it was possible until I saw it happen myself. After checking Skada, the top dps was about 70k or so, with only 3 or 4 more above 50k.

    I don't know what my point is. I just want some sympathy really

    When I heal LFR, which is seldom because it is so incredibly boring (healing is great, just not LFR or even normal modes), I'm very pleased if other healers respec, afk, or are otherwise useless healing-wise, because that means I get something to do. If the healers do great dps (which is never the case in LFR, another reason I never heal, so I can actually carry the DPS to complete the raid fast and not hit the enrage on shit (I have seen enrages hit on practically every boss in ToT now)), then that's further bonus to get the LFR over with ASAP.

    OP, healing with 6 others in LFR means doing nothing at all. Suddenly you had to do something like the rest of the people in LFR, and the sky comes falling down. Come on, of all things to be annoyed about..? Chill and enjoy that you finally got to press more than one random button every minute.

    I have seen enrages hit on a couple of bosses, most often on Primordius, Durumu and Animus, as well as the "soft" enrage on Jin'rokh (NOWHERE TO GOOoooooo...).
