The point of this post is more about who I was healing though. The group itself was a pretty good group. We had a couple of 70's, and the druid tank was super easy to heal. Right outside the castle after saving Thrall, we even pulled two groups, but avoided a wipe. The thing that I found the most strange was that besides healing the druid, I had to heal the warlock a lot. This struck me so odd that I thought I better pay attention to exactly what he was doing. I knew he wasn't doing Hellfire... I believe that's the only warlock spell that inflicts damage on self in the course of doing damage. But what he was doing was life tapping... a lot... even in the middle of combat... when he still had over 50% of his
Now, I probably wouldn't have thought too much about it if he had life tapped out of combat or when he was out of mana. I would have gladly healed him for that. But if I'm much lower on mana, and I'm drinking... shouldn't he be drinking too? Besides which, I'm level 66, he's level 70, I'm sure he had a much larger mana pool that I do.
I was once told that stereotypically, warlocks are jerks. They're inconsiderate, and rude. I've had enough of my elementals banished up on Elemental Plateau to know that this is at least true for some warlocks. I don't know if I would use the word "jerk", but I would put this guy in "the group" for being inconsiderate.
As a whole, I don't believe the stereotype. We have a number of warlocks that are really nice guys. But I suppose there's always going to be exceptions. I'm just glad our warlocks aren't stupid like that.
Oh, and I let the warlock die a few times after I realized what was going on. If it was either heal the rogue who was trying to avoid damage or the warlock that was intentionally inflicting damage on himself. I choose the rogue every time. Ahhh.... revenge. heh.
