@oliviadgrace The other week, I had a Pally tell the whole LFR that I wasn't doing any healing on my Shaman as my mana wasn't going down!:p- Nik W (@lostinmyminds) September 21, 2013
@oliviadgrace I asked him had he not noticed the little blue circles, the totems, and the lightning bolts jumping between players...- Nik W (@lostinmyminds) September 21, 2013
And I thought the WoW Insider readership would be a good place to ask for more meter-related melancholy. To get the ball rolling, I'll share one of my own. This was back in Cataclysm, when Dragon Soul had just launched LFR into the unexpecting populace. I was running the raid for gear on my priest, who was discipline, back before discipline was cool. I loved disc, still do, never played holy, and one of the things I loved was Atonement. So I used it a lot.
In this one LFR, thanks to my decent gear, and disc's meter strengths, I was top of the healing charts. I was also 15th for for DPS, and a warrior said "kick Lumius, they're listed as healer but DPSing". And he linked DPS. I tried to explain myself, but the vote-kick had already begun. A druid linked healing, but to no avail. I was back in Stormwind without so much as a by your leave. Thanks, meters.
So share your tales of woe. They don't have to have a healing flavor, anything you like. Have you suffered from meter abuse?
