So I ran my first Northrend dungeon today on my priest, as shadow DPS this time. Since I wasn't 70 yet and I didn't have the latest level 70 skills, I didn't want to risk making a mess of healing. Besides, DPS is so much more leisurely...
After a very long wait of about 30 minutes, I finally found myself in Utgarde Keep. We had a paladin tank and a shaman healer.
A couple of minutes into the run it became apparent that the healer was having trouble keeping the tank alive, even when fighting small groups of trash. This wasn't gonna be good. In between DPS-ing I would pop a Power Word: Shield on the tank when her health dipped really low.
The healer was also constantly running out of mana and at one point told us to slow down so she could drink. That's when the tank said "You wouldn't run out of mana so often if you'd use your mana totem". At that point it dawned on me that the healer wasn't using a single totem. I was like, WTF.
From there on, she started using the mana totem. In the words of the tank (with whom I was having a private conversation about the healer), "facepalm".
After our first wipe I decided to switch specs to holy and heal the tank myself so we were pretty much dual-healing during the rest of the run. We tried initiating a kick vote but apparently the other members weren't aware how much she sucked so they declined to kick her.
Eventually we finished the dungeon though we almost wiped at the last boss thanks to those pillars which kept the tank out of line of sight.
There's no purpose to this post except to vent a little bit and wonder how the hell is it possible for some people to be so clueless at bloody level 70. At least, that healer is now on my ignore list so I won't have to suffer her incompetence from now on.
