    Im not getting into the whole " I didn't get nuttin'" spiel, or any of the lag rants. There are plenty of those threads already, please keep those comments there.

    What I do wish we could do, is get the EMs to fix a few rewards for the unsung, unrecognized heroes of some of our events. The name that I will pick on today is any version of a Zath. Always around healing and rezzing (altho in the heat of battle and B&W screens, i cant usually find anyone im looking for) and participating in whatever event is going on, without any chance of reward. I know I personally have just stood back at some of em with the big overpowering beasts, and just healed the tamers drags like a mad man. Because, as the drags go, so do we ;)

    But back on point, the healers need some thanks, and some recognition. Perhaps have them sign up as healers before the event, so you know they are doing that. If they can fight a little bit, so be it. But healing/rezzing will be their main duty, to man the aid stations.

    Just a simple something cool. A crook, a q-staff, a sash, with their name and event on it, Healer Emeritus, or some such. This lets the support and rescue crew have a reward as well.

    Post your ideas, or suggestions, and I don't know if the EMs read the boards here, with all the fussing, but if any of you have contact with them, please ask them to check this idea, and consider it.

    Not sure if you know, but a while back they put in healer looting rights. A healer has the same odds of getting drops on everything just like the fighters do. Has been like that for a couple of months or so.

    I knew that they had supposedly done that for the Fel champs...but to be honest, I've never seen it happen at the Ilsh champs, Sleeping Dragon, or any of the events. If it's sposed to be happening outside of Fel champs, someone needs to check the coding.

    Has anyone here seen healers get rights outside of Fel champs? If so, let us know.

    Can only speak from Atl experience.

    Have gotten a drop at Cora and an EM Event by only healing. EM's could have the ability to toggle healing rights on or off tho *shrugs*

    (seems I'm spending my morning with you, Kylie) at the bottom of the announcement about publish 77.0.0 landing on TC1 on June 21st you'll see bug fixes, one of which is "Fixed the issue involving healers getting looting rights properly." So I'm thinking we can assume that at this moment they are not working properly on regular shards.

    Yeah, I had noticed that also. Not sure which issue they are fixing tho. Hmmmmm, could be they were only intended for Fel champs only like Uriah is thinking and are changing them back to that. Or if they were intended for Ilsh champs too and are being adjusted to allow for that. Or 5,000 other possible situations. *shrugs* Sometimes I wish they would include more info on what "problem" they are fixin'

    Have avoided champs since the healing rights patch hit honestly. Have been into other things.

    *edit*

    Oh, and I can think of FAR worse people for me to be spending time with this morning :D

    Well, in order to get rights, you have to be in the middle of the heat, or too close to it.
    And that's definitely not a prime location to provide rezzes, with big monsters always having some sort of area effect that would kill again the recently raised dead person, and also puts the healer in danger.

    I always position myself away from the battle so people will be rezzed safely. I really don't care much for drops or prizes, for I have much fun doing that, but I will admit I was a bit bummed for not getting a trinket stating that I took part on the Exodus battle, as it was my very first big story arch event.
    Still, it's fine and live goes on. I will surely be around the next events, doing what I enjoy doing. Staying far from the battle and rezzing and healing people. :)
