I have three healers. One of which is my main. I do lots and lots of M+
Do I feel like it is “fun” ? HM. No, I dont. It’s not fun. Most of the time I feel like I just had an Olympic sized workout on my mouse hand. My adrenaline is pumping and usually my nerd vein is throbbing out of control due to the increased blood pressure that is caused by: tanks who don’t know a good balance between needing to time and starving you of mana and DPS who go out of their way to get hit by every mechanic in the dungeon. Then there are the dps who get hit by not only everything but they find new exciting ways to take damage. Like oh look there is a spike studded brick wall 300 yards out of my way that we don’t even need to go close to. Let me run over there and fling myself upon it!
TLDR; do I have fun healing? Rarely fun. So why do I do it? Because it’s the role I’m best at. I’m two 15s away from my second KSM toon and done 100% through pugs because I am not a social butterfly to get into a guild etc.
I’m sure somewhere some healer is having fun with their friends in discord completing runs that don’t cause their enrage mechanic to trigger every pull. But it is not me. I suffer silently in the pig group finder that is my own personal purgatory.
And also because I’ve tried tanking and dpsing and I’m just not good at it.
The most fun I have in the game is when I do transmog runs in old legion mythics content that are still very challenging as a healer but also fall completely on my own skill to do
