WHM to BLM: "Don't Heal"Follow

#1 Sep 09 2004 at 7:51 AM Rating: Decent
I decided to get get a couple of levels on my BLM, party to catch up in levels with my friends WHM. I had to do the necessary setup work for Rank 5, so I figured why not accept any invites I get to the jungles of Khazam. I ended up getting two /tells asking for party. The first person never responded... so I accepted the second.

It takes a while for everybody to get there. That was a bit frustrating, but I gladly waited. The WHM was in Windy and needed to travel to Jeuno.

Once the WHM arrived.. we started to kill Smithies and Mandras. After the second battle... I started to help healing. The WHM scorned me and told me not to do any healing, because they regened magic faster... :( For three hours or so... I was in a party and was asked not to do any healing... it was all about NUKE, NUKE and more NUKE! This was pure bliss for us main-jobbed WHMs who like to toil as a BLM.

If the WHM can keep up(at that level it isnt hard as long as tank is equipped properly), sure don't backup heal. As long as nobody dies it is all good :)

Oh and for the record, WHM do not regen magic faster, BLM get's each clear mind regen bonus before WHM.

As long as this is mentioned, I should say I got scolded once in Qufim for casting Paralyze and Slow on mobs at the beginning of the fight by our BLM. Usually if there's a RDM in the group, I don't cast any debuffs and stick to strictly healing. If not, I always cast Paralyze and Slow at the start of the fight... and sometimes Silence if applicable. I figure the mana cost is an investment. Paralyze alone is one of my favorite spells... 6 mana to keep the foe from attacking even just once saves me the 8 mana for a Cure, and usually it sticks much longer than one attack...

My pet peeve is RDM's who Regen the primary defender. I work hard to keep Regen going strong usually on the defender and puller and if there's a RDM who wants to Regen some of the others, that's fine by me. Aside from that, though, it feels like wasted mana when I cast Regen on the Paladin and then 5 seconds later I see the mage casting Regen... maybe I just need to add something to my macro to make it more visible... though I don't like screen clutter like that...

Reason for BLM not to heal is to control the hate that nuking the mob has given to you. IF WHM can do thier job right, that give BLM more space to do damage. However, When the battle is over and WHM Mp is low and BLM still have more mp left, Its will be appreciated if you can support the After batlle Healing and let WHM to Heal mp ASAP so by the next pull is back they can be ready and BLM in other hand can rest the 1st half of the battle If mp is not sufficient. EXP party, 1st important thign is hate control... ^^

Yup.. I'm well aware of the strengths of both... I thought it was humorous, especially considering I got scolded first for healing after the battle was over.

I enjoyed not having to worry about it.. I kept my MP up all night and was never responsible for party downtime.
