Worst Things About Playing a Healer Class in MMORPG GamesRue I was having some thoughts about when I played MMORPGs in the past. It was dreadful.
This is mostly referring to my issues with being a Priest in TERA, but can apply to other MMORPGs.
The Top Ten
I can't tell you how many times I came across stupid DPS players who would purposely lose a lot of HP and not try to survive and then complain that I didn't get there fast enough. Just because there's a healer in the party, doesn't mean they make sure you survive. You need to do your best to survive on your own as much as possible to help out your healer. - Rue
Um no, it's not easy. It's hard to be a healer because you are always running around supporting and healing your party mates to the point it gets chaotic. Especially when the DPS don't try to dodge and keep themselves from losing HP and you have to make sure their dumb asses don't die. - Rue
If you play a priest (or Mystic) in TERA, you don't only heal, you have to constantly buff your allies and debuff the enemies in order to make fights quicker. It's hard to do that when people are not trying to stay alive in order to reduce time healing and get more things done. Of course, you can't always prevent being healed, but you dodge/block attacks for a reason. - Rue
Healing classes are not simple to learn. If you are new to it, chances it takes a while to get the hang of it. Expecting them to be pro in early dungeons is rather unfair. We all suck at some point. - Rue
Those players who purposely die and don't do anything. To be honest, I let them lay dead until they disconnect but the fact that we have to deal with them is annoying. - Rue
