It's a blast!
I tried healing in WoW on my priest alt and loved it, but being that it was an alt I couldn't 'connect' with that character. Going into XIV I decided early on that I was going to heal.
It has really been a blast! I've healed the first 2 instance, Sashsta (sp?) and TTD. I loved it!
As a healer, you can still generate aggro/hate with the mobs, so you have to make sure you're not just spamming heals incessantly but you can't let health drop too low either. With cross class abilities you can also throw out a few DoT's on mobs while still healing your party.
I love it! I cannot wait to get the WHM job, still have a few levels to go and am hoping to get on later tonight!
Then again, I think it also depends on the person. I love the notion of having to keep people alive. To have a group dependent on you. The pressure that may come with a bad pull or tough encounter.
Try it out! It's really the only way to find out if it's for you or not.
i'm not saying, i'm just saying
