This is my first post on GW2 forums, so I’m a little bit excited:) I have a question for you.
I’m playing this game since the core game released, most of the time I take a break for 5-6 months, then return and continue my progress from where I left it. But this time, I faced some warnings (or insults most of the time) during fractal runs with my HFB.
I believe, some of my teammates wants me to become their pocket healer during fractal. For ex. Snowblind fractal, last boss fight; in a phase, boss dissepear, summon some adds and whole combat area bombarding by AoE. I believe in this phase, every team member stop dpsing and start avoiding those AoEs. Then, after bombardement ends, whole party should focus on elite add, and right there, healer should heal his/her party members, am I right? Some days ago, after we wiped on mentioned boss, 2 of my team members started to insult me that how noob and idiot I am, and whining about where is the heal. I asked, we were all spread around, if I decide to heal, which team member I should heal? They didnt answer my question and after another insult phase, they rage quit. I mean… this is not WoW, there is no spot heal in GW2. And instead of raids, most of the fractal damage is avoidable. So, every team member should avoid damage if its possible (unless its an extreme situation like last boss of Reactor, if you decide to stay on one panel and burst the boss).
Or sometimes, ppl asking me for perma Stability, but it took 5 minutes to they take down a 1-min-fight-boss, and also during this time, they want perma quickness too.
Btw, these examples are minority. Most of the time, I find a party, we get in, clear the T4 dailies without any casulities, we wish having a nice day to each other, and left.
Is my logic wrong? Or did I just faced against elitism?
