See the difference?
No one said, that he's wrong, but "99% is right", isn't right.
Did anyone said the opposite?
It's bad, because it only ticks every 4 seconds.
Not really, it's much better, than most people expect. Since Battle Fatigue is gone, percentual Healings (and even smaller healing) are good. Some are better, some not. Simple as that.
Where did i talked about ratings, etc. for ideas and/or flexiblity/possibilities?
For sure it's closed-minded.
We're discussion much here, and not only one thing.
Yeah, that's the problem if your're closed-minded.
Other Ideas, thought aren't welcome and must be ignored or killed.
I'm not going to respond to any of that. Honestly. Except for the fact that i just did.
I've played ret since early tbc and can tell you i've messed around with a thousand different specs and comps, then a thousand more after that. I'm not saying i'm an expert. I'm really not. i'm just saying i've tried a lot of different things. Some things just work, others dont.
That's the point felic is trying to make. I'm not trying to be an asshole or anything, and I'm sure plenty of people appreciate your contributions to the ret community as of late. That said, when you put shit on the internet, you're going to get varying degrees of responses, most of which probably disagree with you. Just because that is the case does not mean people are close-minded. It means you dont like being contradicted.

Two guys, who are singleminded, and don't think about possibilities/flexibility and other Stuff.
Other people read this here, so don't be so mindblocking and kill every idea or information from others.
Honestly, I haven't posted in these forums for a long time, but i had to after reading the stuff you're posting.
Basically, long story short, it comes down to what your experience is. I'm not going to be a dick and assume you're not that good, but with all of the really, really odd suggestions you make, I almost have to.
Felic is right about 99% of the stuff he/she has posted in this thread. The heals you're talking about with SoI and "turtling" and playing defensively being the best offense are hilarious. Like, honestly, man, the heal on glyph of AW and the heal on SoI are both garbage. The only reason i would personally ever use SoI in arena when playing "defensive" was for the mana gain, because i was forced to heal, not the heal on the ability itself. And we dont even get the mana anymore, so there really is no purpose for using it at all. It's not be closed-minded; it's realistic. I've played at relatively low-level arena 2300-2400 and the ideas you spew wouldn't even work there, let alone at high-level play.
Realistically, albeit sadly, there usually only is one particular spec that works well; all others tend to be gimmicky, or fly under the radar somehow without any real use. It used to be different, true. Back in bc and wrath you could substitute some abilities based on preference, but even then there were cookie-cutter builds that were just vastly superior in most situations.
I must admit, your personality and posts have really annoyed me, which is irrelevant, but i figured i'd mention it anyway.
