Hi Mikeyc - I remember you from a Promy run about 6 months ago; I'm pretty sure you were BLM at the time. Hope things are going ok for you, coz they weren't that nite. :(
BLM/RDM/SMN/BRDs that think they actually are the WHM, (when there is quite clearly a bright white a red jam sandwich there) so every Silena, Cure, Erase etc is casted twice. Backup, <yes please> steal my job <No Thanks>.
As BLM, I've played the backup healer role and a few times as main healer. If it means that my party continues to xp and we can improve our chains, I will cast Divine Seal Curaga I or II, as needed. This allows the WHM (who should take a knee at the end of a fight) to get a few extra ticks of MP. As a BLM, I've got the "luxury" of resting my MP before engaging in the next fight. And just so you know, it's pretty standard at the end of a fight for the RDM or the BRD to do the curaga's - again, it allows the WHM to get some MP.
As a RDM, I am
the WHM in my parties and have been since level 25.
If it bothers you to have backup healers, talk to them, parse out the responsibilities (WHM focuses on Tank and backup Tank, BRD focuses on puller and other DD). Should make everyone happy at that point... oh and no one is trying to "steal" your job.
And why would you ask who needs Haste? If you're at a level that gives you the spell, you should have a pretty darn good idea of who should have it... I don't ask truthfully.
