Some people have blogged about why Healing May Not Be For You, and while they may be correct, they're also missing something.
You see... I was once a healer. *gasp*
I'll just wait here for that shock to settle in.
Right, carrying on. Back in the day of Vanilla and early Burning Crusade I was a Restoration Shaman (it wasn't like there was anything but Restoration Shaman in Vanilla, but I digress) and I'd like to think I was a good one. However, because I'm a math geek at heart, there was only so far I could take Resto with math. The rest of it was subjective, situation and arty. "DPS is a science, Healing is an art" as they say, and I'm more of a scientist.
I didn't leave healing because I wasn't having fun, I left healing because DPS suited my temperament & play style slightly better, not to mention the niche I've filled in the Shaman World.
In short: I got to quantify shit better. If you're someone who has to top the meter and improve your own performance every time in quantifiable ways, maybe healing isn't for you.
