You’re healing a level 83 normal dungeon… the tank takes damage.
OMG I MUST HEAL THE TANK RIGHT NAO!
OMG HE IS GOING TO DIEEEEE!
Not in the next 5 seconds, no.
Stop. Think. You do have the time for this.
How about a Hot followed by an efficient heal.
MAYBE? NO! HE WILL DIEEEEEE WHILE I AM CASTING IT.
IT DIDN’T HEAL HIM TO FULL RIGHT AWAY!!
Hit him again with it.
THE TANK IS AT 75%! I MUST TOP HIM OFF OR HE WILL DIEEEEE!
Oh geez, no. Quit it.
OMG NOW THE RAID IS TAKING DAMAGE!
Well, how much damage?
DOES IT MATTER? IN THE NEXT GCD THEY COULD BE DEAAAAD!
Probably not. Will topping them off cause a lot of overheal?
WELL YES BUT THEY MIGHT DIEEEEE!
No, stop that. They will not die. Leave them alone for now.
BUT BUT BUT.
OMG, NOBODY IS TAKING ANY DAMAGE NOW, I SHOULD PRE-HOT EVERYONE AND REFRESH STUFF AND GET READY FOR ARMAGEDDON.
No. Stop that. Put down the renew and back away from the keybinding.
I MUST CAST! I AM TWITCHY! THINGS CAN GO WRONG IN A FRACTION OF A SECOND!
Well, if you truly have nothing to do, you can cast hymn of hope to regain mana….
OMG I HAVE TIME FOR THAT?
… or DPS…
HOORAY PEW PEWPEWPEW!!!
… if you have taken the appropriate talents so that it buffs your healing in some way…
… and it doesn’t use up the mana that you need to otherwise heal through the rest of the fight…
Just sit there until you’re needed.
BUT THAT IS BORING.
Think about puppies and kittens, then.
OH PUPPIES AND KITTENS ARE NICE.
