Reasons why looking for tank/heal takes long

Typically;

  1. It's slower to level in either healing/tank spec or with healing/tank gear, so most capable classes are using DPS specs and gear.
  2. You need ~1 tank per 10 raiders at end game, which means tanks are always at a roughly 1 per 2 groups ratio, even at end game.
  3. Tanking carries a lot of responsibility. Many players dislike that. Healers get blamed for all wipes, many players dislike that. Those players choose DPS.
  4. Playing anything other than burst DPS in PvP takes co-ordination and a moderate amount of skill.
  5. DPS gets lots of big numbers, it's easy to see who is "the best" in a casual group where people only look at DPS meters, and is arguably the least responsibility and the most outright 'fun'.

Of the people who replied, unless the Druid was playing a Moonkin, he is about the only one easily able to adjust to the tank role.

Warrior tanks without a shield suck, warrior tanks without decent knowledge of what they are doing don't have the easy aoe threat of a Bear/Paladin, and Enhancement Shamans don't really have the mana pools to heal unless they have a secondary set. Most people DE/Vendor a secondary set as they level for mount gold.

I have no problem with dpsing or tanking, but healing instances is super stressful to me. Everyone blames you. I think open world pvp healing is much better because it's so chaotic.

As a healer, you can blame the tank. And hunters.

Are you saying wpvp healing is good because nobody can blame you because everyone assumes you're healing *someone* :P?

They just don't expect to be healed, unless I'm a designated healer in a party.

Yeah, in PvP healers are actually appreciated and you feel like an epic hero when you charge in and save someone. In PvE people only notice you if things go wrong. ¬¬

Oh damn, that reminded me how long it took to find a tank back on Nostalrius (even with that high pop)... screw that, I'm 100% rolling warrior. I hope I don't suck...

Back in the day this song made me return to my priest and heal BGs. I still think Penance is the best looking ability in the game. My music taste was extremely different (as my Youtube subscriber list :D ) back then but I still get the chills from this one. I'm sure the connected memories help that a lot.
