Burn out?

I don’t know how to describe it. I still like WoW and raiding, but maybe I am getting healing burn out?

Disc Healing

Ok dmg incoming…heal, heal, bubble, bubble. Heal, heal, bubble, bubble.

Holy Paladin Healing

/flails about. Holy Paladin feels awkward and not as satisfying anymore. /huddles in the corner and laments the loss of the “old” Holy Light.

Every fight in ICC (with exception of LK) is predictible and healing them are not “challenging” anymore (heroic modes are another matter, and no Lootship does not count). The feeling of danger and OMFG moments are not there anymore. (I guess that is the price of outgearing content). I still enjoy healing a lot, but the thrill is gone.

I find myself liking DPS more and more. Maybe i will get a ret spec again for my pally. What I really want is a rogue or a ranged DPS…hmmm maybe it is time to lvl one or two.

    I think you need to also make sure you have checked out the new healing style for holy pallys.

    I have this feeling that you are still going with the mindset of the previous style and things just don’t work that way.

    I just can’t see them leaving holy pallys that messed up. There has to be something that we are missing.

    What is the blogosphere say on this? I have been behind on my reading.

      Healadins are kinda gimped right now. We get some new toys in Cata once we can level again, but until then, we’re not the powerhouses we once were. We’re a lot better at healing on the run than we were before, but still well below anything a druid can put out. Light of Dawn is fun but situational. It’s all a huge adjustment from the old style. I know several pallies that have either retired their toon completely or gone prot or ret. I think if you give it a chance though, and just stick with it until the new Cata-style boss fights are out where the tanks won’t be getting 2-shotted, it will all fall into place.

        The throughput of a holy paladin now seems very limited at this point. HL is pretty much useless. Divine Light takes too long to cast. Flash of Light is way mana intensive for longer fights. Holy Shock’s is ok. I like my pally and will try to stick it out, but healing with them is kinda frustrating at this point.

    Get a mage. Then you can trick people into going to Stonard.
