I didn't get much time to play this weekend, but when I hopped on yesterday evening I decided to run all of the guildhests for the bonus exp. I decided to do them as CNJ since it seemed to get instant queues and oh boy was I in for a special treat. I ran all of them twice, once solo and once with my friend. In all of those instances there was only one where I didn't end up CNJ tanking the entire time. The worst of which was the level 25 goblin one where the tank only used flash once, after I said something, on a single mob.
Now I can understand not knowing how to tank properly at level 10, and those fights are geared toward that. However I don't understand how someone can level their class to 26+ and still not know how to use fundamental skills. I know it's the beta but there is a point where that excuse just doesn't fly anymore. It isn't difficult to hold threat on everything in this game. It is a bit more involved than WoW's spam AoE threat ability and then spam other 3+ target ability and win, but it isn't that bad. In fact, I find it rather enjoyable myself. Hopefully they don't feel the need to rework threat too much to pick up this slack. I know I could just tank every time I queue up, but I enjoy healing as well.. And I suppose I do end up tanking anyway XD.
Another issue I have with the Duty Finder and dungeons in general is the Need system. It works fine for the most part, but Tanks can need on medium armor and everyone can need on any accessory. I feel like this needs to be limited somewhat so that people can't just need on everything, even if they can't use it on their current character. I know more than once I've unintentionally needed on a piece of medium armor as a tank because the tooltip glitched and showed positive green defense. And with no way of canceling my need roll I end up getting the gear without any way to trade it to the DPS. Then there are accessories. Currently anyone can need on any accessory, regardless of stats. The Accessories are usually the rarest drops in the dungeons, only randomly coming from Treasure Coffers. This can be pretty frustrating when you are CNJ and the only caster earrings currently in the game until level 29 drop and go to a half naked LNC.
I really didn't intend for this to come off as a "people suck" thread, but my experiences with the Duty Finder as a healer were not enjoyable. I have a feeling that I will end up trying my hardest to get most of a full party outside of the Duty Finder before queueing up for a dungeon. I really hope this gets better after launch, otherwise this game might become "Revenge of the Casuals". If this is the level of competent play that will be taken to max level, I sense nerf bats coming to end game content constantly.
