I have to admit I’m feeling a touch of resentment, and it’s no one’s fault. It’s the fault of the fight mechanics. I can be there for some fights, but others I have to sit out on, just because of my class/spec.
It’s almost as if in order to see all of the boss fights in Wrath I have to have all different kinds of healer characters. I’m not sure what has changed. I didn’t feel this way when raiding in BC.
The Priest class is versatile and perfect for 5 mans. When you get into anything bigger you might as well set your Priest aside. Disc Priests aren’t as effective at tank healing as Paladins. Holy Priests aren’t as effective at raid healing as Shamans or Druids.
This is a hard pill to swallow. I rolled a Priest because I wanted to heal, and I fell in love with healing. Now, I rather feel useless. Perhaps, I’m just not that good at it, but others have told me differently. I truly feel like the only reason I get to raid is because of Priest buffs. The Priest class was designed to be a healer. That’s what a Priest is. And still, I feel mediocre in comparison to the other classes.
This has been my primary motivation for leveling Vivacious. I need a different type of healer, so I can actually do something other than 5 mans.
Time to get serious about this alt, because I think it may end up being my main.
I’m almost hoping that I find I really enjoy either my rogue or my mage when Cata comes out. DPS just has to be good to get into a raid.
