Worst Things About Playing a Healer Class in MMORPG Games

Rue
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

1 You are always the blame for any screw up, even though it's not even your fault

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

2 DPS think healers have the easiest role in the game

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

3 When players start taking off before you can buff them and wonder why they are taking hits from enemies harshly
4 When players are constantly dodging your heals
5 Tank players who don't know how to block or keep aggro onto them so healers don't get mobbed
6 Players who have no idea that a healer doesn't only heal but has to do other things

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

7 When there is no Tank and DPS players let you get mobbed by enemies
8 When you are in a town and people come up to you starting to demand you to buff them
9 Players bashing new healers instead of giving them tips/criticism to improve

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

10 Trolls

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
