As noted in an earlier post, I was trying some various raidframe options. I’d settled upon and have been using sRaidFrames for a while — it was darn close to being “all I wanted” in the balance of information and small load. But there’s a component missing, and I have to bid regretful farewell.
sRaidFrames doesn’t show pets. Now as a healer I don’t HAVE to heal pets, but in my humble opinion the pet’s contribution is a significant portion of the owning player’s contribution – and I serve the party very well indeed if I keep the pet alive too. I’m willing to let the pet die if the circumstances warrant (too busy, etc), but letting it die because I cannot see it – especially when I’m supposed to be group heals and I’ve got plenty of time and mana – is unacceptable.
And the kicker is that I was browsing sRaidFrames developer’s notes and discovered the pet issue is a known issue and that there are no plans to add them. Which means hunters and warlocks say goodbye. And healers who, like me, think pets are partymembers too.
Back to the decision tree…
