+1 for the Gilligans Island referenceJust sit right back and you'll hear tell a tale,
A tale of a gimpy crew
That started in Delera's Tomb
With a new wizard or two.
The wizard he was getting low
His spell points they were spent
He turned to say can you heal me?
We all knew what he meant.
The favored soul said g.t.f.o.
I've done all that I can do
My mana bar is really small
So tough, tough luck for you; tough, tough luck for you.
The gimps they started talking and some bad words were thrown about
With the wizard
Favored soul too
Some other pugs
In a room
Neither one could do his job
Here in Delera's Tomb!
As for the thread, weak drama = fail. Any favored soul can heal, use wands and scrolls and melee. No excuse for you not helping. There is also no excuse for the wizzie to not drink a pot.
Therefore, you're both wrong.
I made popcorn and everything and this is the "drama" that I get...

So what your really telling everyone is that your just an A$$.
You had the spell points and it would of been no skin off your back to toss a quick heal but instead you decided not to do it, which made the wizard wand whip and take up the most precious commodity there is in the game. TIME.
Im sure you've made a great name for yourself both on the forums and in-game with this sad little story.
I'm two ways on this. I generally think everyone should carry some form of self healing. Sure it would been team-ish to heal him after he hurt himself. But pretty selfish for the wizard to assume that other people should enable his play style, especially since wizards and *cough* sorcs love to brag about their kill counts without crediting any support characters.
And no, I don't join BYOH groups. If all that matters is healing, why would I need the rest of them? And as for bringing down the rest of the group - isn't that what grouping is supposed to compensate for? The whole being greater than the sum of the parts? I'm all for aggressive individualism but not when part of a team.
(I do heal as needed on my FvS, I just wish that same power had gone to more awesome use.)
Honestly, my only objection would be directed at the Wizard who presumed that he would be haled to full once he traded his hp for sp. Would it have killed the Wizzie to tell the group (and therefore the FvS) what he was going to do and for the FvS to toss a heal or three his way so that he would be ready to go for the end fight? Seems there was a Communication Breakdown here.
I'm pretty PO'd at the general negative response from the thread.
I've got 3 capped chars, 2 near cap, none healers. I rolled this fvs to "see the other side". My playstyle expects a certain lvl of self reliance. Even my wf barbarian carries a slew of pots which he keeps like an IV flowing at all times. Exceptions are raid and epics, where imo one cannot reasonably keep up with incoming dmg and still perform personal party role. I kind of expected this to be "common sense". But the jist I get from this thread, is that I was obligated to heal the wizard mentioned in OP, despite what I thought was a rude gesture and a sign of disrespect (I'm gonna manipulate your role as healer to steal some of ur blue bar).
I just can't get it through my thick head *** this guy (or some of you guys) are thinking. If it's and easy quest, I'd pike the last bit (sic). If it's a hard quest and resource intensive, I'd want the healer to save sp for the big encounter, when I really would need a heal. Finally, if I really did need that sp for w/e reason, I'd politely ask for a heal, and explain I came ill prepared (no pots or w/e). In 2/3 situations, I'd deal with the situation myself, and in the last instance, I would ask help from the party, not just covertly steal someone's blue. The logic here is "you're rich [in sp], I'm not, so give me some". It really gets under my skin that 80% of poster feel that the healer's sp bar is just an extension of the party's red bar, that everyone is entitled to moar heals, and that any form of self-preservation is beneath a non-healer's consideration.
I did invite a friendly discussion with the wizard about his tactics. I continue to invite a FRIENDLY discussion to understand the "other side's" perspective. I could have easily just ignored what he was doing (not bother look at the red/blue bars), solo the end fight, move on, write off him along with all other players of similar persuasion as r37ard5. I hope that puts some perspective on the situation, but maybe not. Forum troll is still troll.
The intent of the thread was to get a general view of the DDO populace about my role in the situation (not drama). I apologize for the topic heading "drama time" it was meant as a joke, not a mood setter. I understand there will always be trolls and neg reppers, so word to the peanut gallery, find your way out of my thread, head onto some Khyber sob story post, get a life, get a dog, get a gf/bf, or all of the above plz. I, for one, don't enjoy "wisecracks" whose intention and humor derives from being derogatory, degrading, insulting, inflammatory, etc...
