Give a man a fish, and he demands two more tomorrow.
Teach a man to fish, and he'll leave to find somebody who'll just give him a fish.
Beat him unconscious with the fish, and it's comedy.
@MrCow such great ideas! Mix it up in tank land and make us think!
@Mmaha I love my WF barb - don't TR him - keep him WF! WF for the cause!!!! I've healed your WF barb and he's totally fine. (Mine on the other hand... LOL )...
On my dwarf wiz, I'm not carrying reconstruct, except for kobold island.
I can heal people with heal scrolls, in hardcore emergency situation however, but you knew well what you was doing when rolling WF melee, I'm not going to spend plat on you, not to mention even more precious inventory space.
On my WF wiz however, I migth throw a reconstruction if nessesary, of course, assuming I will spot that someone needs it (very low chance).
Alright I only read the first page due to lack of time, but unless all the divines that were crying about healing WF magically changed their minds in the other two pages, then you all need to quit crying like a bunch of divas. Yes, WF are slightly more difficult to heal. That does not mean you should not heal them or you should let them die. It means you just have to heal them a bit more, all of you multiclass clerics and melee fvs need to invest a bit more heavily in sp and you'll be fine. My fvs has healed a WF tank through all raids and epics. WF melees are not the problem, healers who want to claim they have "epic dps" or "I'm better cause I have evasion" are, a healer doesn't need evasion you just make sure you have 500+ HP, toss yourself 1 heal when you take a bomb to the face, and your good. Quit pretending that the WF melees are the problem, your Gimp builds are the problem.
[Edit] and by no means do you have to be a nanny bot to heal a WF.
pure clerics will have a better caster level, and therefore more spell pen. they'll also hit for just a bit more with some of their cure/inflict spells, and have more SP. but more DC is definitely not one of the things pure clerics get.

I don't understand the fuss about WF healing either. I mean I've met plenty of awful fleshies to heal. My recent favourite is a sub 600 hp monk who insists on Horry tanking - quite nice DR but atrocious healing amp. (and a belief that dw stops disctigrate but that's a separate matter) .
It's the fleshies with nothing that get me. I think WF just get targeted because they're WF. But toss a heal and test before people say anything snipey.
It's a bit like the argument for all casters to carry reconstruct over some dps spell. Let the WF chip in some repair wands, scrolls or maybe just a few SP potions to help out the healer. The healers problem with healing WF likely comes from lack of sharing resources, seems a lot of people will horde SP pots for their own alts or to sell at high prices on auction.
Weak healers don't deserve to heal WF! Or something controversial like that...
I have a 20 FVS and 20 CLR and neither has any issue keeping anyone healed. So I hit wf for a little less than the massive overhealing that you typically see with fleshies. So what. The only quest it even comes into play on is eLOB these days.
Quit being racists and get out there and grind!

Ok it's been a few days but I read all(or most) of the replies.
1 Just because I said I don't have healing amp gear does not mean I will not get it. I am in the prosess of gringing for it. So don't jump to the conclusion that I think I shouldn't.
2 Yes I have a lvl20 pure cleric and I do just fine healing WF tanks as well. But I have never yelled at my friend the WF wizard for helping me out by reconstructing the WF in the group when he can.
3 So a random reconstruct constitutes a "nanny"? Thats all fine and well the next time your cleric/fvs gets mobbed by trash and I'm on my dps barb(that also happens to be WF) dont expect me to come running over there and pull them off you/kill them. "How many nannies do you need?"
And as for those who stopped reading at "I don't have any healing amp." I keep checking my christmas tree and my mail and for some reason the epic fairies aint dropping me any epic gear. So until I get some from grinding I won't miss you when you read no further.
