I just came back from the game after a hiatus. I've been playing my low level artificer. I have found that some groups expect me to be the main healer. Is this common?
My level 9 artificer was in a pug waiting for the group to fill up for an elite Delera's run. After it filled, I notice that me and the ranger are the only ones with a spell point bar. I figure no big deal, everyone probably can take care of themselves somehow.
So we get into part 1, and the leader says, "you got the heals, right?"
I say, "I can keep the rogue up no problem." (he was the only wf in the group)
He says, "what about everyone else?"
I say, "I got 80 csw wounds pots, wasn't expecting to use them on everyone else."
But I did, I slotted the spell at the first shrine, and after part 1 they were half gone. I tell them that I don't have much plat on this guy so if they want me to continue healing them, I was going to need some more pots, scrolls, wands, etc.
The leader says you have heal spells.
Yeah but they use cure potions as a spell component.
So after no donations were coming I left the group and soloed the rest of the thing with my dog lol.
Sorry bout getting long winded, but if you want a low level artificer to heal your group, you should at least ask them about it when they join.
Am I missing something here? Like I said I've been away from the game awhile.
