Snotty's words have been kindly transcribed today by Koch.
So there's like this meme or whatever going round about healing and I can't believe nobody tagged me!!!! :( :( :( :( I guess everybody was too shy because I am such an awesome healer and I'd make them look bad.
What is the name, class, and spec of your primary healer?
Snottydin, Paladin and Girl IRL, of course!
What is your primary group healing environment? (i.e. raids, pvp, 5 mans)
LOL, I am so amazing I can heal anything. Of course I mainly raid with my guild in 25man hardmodes (hard, get it? LOL), but I heal anything for anyone.
What is your favorite healing spell for your class and why?
Flash of Light LOL. It's all that's really needed. When your spellpower is as high as mine, you'll be able to solo-heal almost anything with just flash of light.
What healing spell do you use least for your class and why?
Anything else, really. If you are as good as me, there is no need for anything but Flash of Light. Lololol.
What do you feel is the biggest strength of your healing class and why?
Mainly that it's my healing class. I mean .. with a healing godess like myself probably even a bandage rogue could be a great healer. But as a paladin – I can solo heal just about anything!
What do you feel is the biggest weakness of your healing class and why?
Due to the heavy plate I have to wear and other people misconceptions I occasionally have to have a second healer in the group. I mean.. I can solo-heal anything! But then they say „Paladins cannot heal raids“ … they have no idea that it's me. I usually have to whisper them and tell them how wrong they are then. Sometimes I even let slip that I am a girl in real life – because everyone knows girls are better at multitasking.
In a 25 man raiding environment, what do you feel, in general, is the best healing assignment for you?
Hello? It's me! Snottydin. I can heal anything. I'm usually best on maintank healing because then no one else tries to keep them up and compete with me. I can then always keep an eye on everyone elses castbars and run to cover them too.
What healing class do you enjoy healing with most and why?
I like healing with a new healer of any class. Then I can give them whispered tips throughout the instance and show them how to heal properly. Not that they will ever achieve my level of woot, but at least I can show them how to do it right! Sometimes I even get to flirt with them a little, when they find out I'm a girl IRL *blush*
What healing class do you enjoy healing with least and why?
Anyone who thinks they are required when I'm around – and other paladins are the worst. They keep insisting that I'm doing it rong – and then sometimes get really huffy when I tell them to shut up and listen to me. I mean.. I'm a girl IRL. I am just better than them!
What is your worst habit as a healer?
Flirting with the main tank during an important pull and letting slip that I'm a girl IRL. Sometimes they get so distracted that they die.
What is your biggest pet peeve in a group environment while healing?
I really don't like it when people shout for heals. I mean.. I see their health nice and clear – they are just not highest priority. The list is always me, then the nicest guy who knows I'm a girl IRL, then the rest. They really should know not to ask for heals. LOL
Do you feel that your class/spec is well balanced with other healers for PvE healing?
Not really. I think paladins are a little underpowered. We need more utility to cover for the glaring mistakes the developers made when designing our spells. At least some instant cast Flash of Light would be really good. Occasionally I get distracted when playing and then only look up and see someone is taking a lot of damage who does not deserve to die. And then I have to wait for the cast to finish. It sometimes even makes me curse a little *blush*.
What tools do you use to evaluate your own performance as a healer?
There is really no need to evaluate my performance. I know I am a healing godess. And a girl IRL.
What do you think is the biggest misconception people have about your healing class?
Oh they so always say paladins are good only for tank-healing. But if you are as good as me, there is nothing I cannot do. I mean... I could practically solo-heal any of this.
What do you feel is the most difficult thing for new healers of your class to learn?
I expect the amount of spells sometimes flusters new paladin healers. From experience I can tell them that it's really only flash of light they need to use. If you are as good as I am, that is enough LOL.
If someone were to try to evaluate your performance as a healer via recount, what sort of patterns would they see (i.e. lots of overhealing, low healing output, etc)?
I suppose they would see my flash of light being enough to heal anything. So perfectly, in fact, that I could probably solo-heal the raid we went to. And the other healers being really low on the meters.
Haste or Crit and why?
Doesn't matter. I'm a healing godess and I can solo-heal this with any gear.
What healing class do you feel you understand least?
There was this priest once, who seemed to do silly things. I tried to teach him how to heal properly (and may have told him I am a girl IRL as well *blush*) but he was still rather high on the meters. Funny that.
What add-ons or macros do you use, if any, to aid you in healing?
I use grid and xperl and decursive and smartdebuff. That's all I need, really.
Do you strive primarily for balance between your healing stats, or do you stack some much higher than others, and why?
I stack spellpower, of course. That's the only way to reach healing like a godess. No other way could I solo-heal this. Although that last sentence sounded almost a bit boastful *blush* and I'm not really used to boasting. I'm a girl IRL, see? LOL
