It's not about taking a hit, its about pulling the mob away from the DD and Tank. People hate balls to the walls RNG and BLM for that reason. They are going to hate Cure IV spamming RDM just as much.
There's a bit of a difference between them though...
- RNG and BLM are capable of holding back if they need to pull less hate. Healers do not have that same luxury. If you apparently need that Cure 4 spamming RDM just for your frontliners to survive, what are you going to do; tell him to stop?
- RNG needs to be at a certain distance to optimize the ranged damage. Cures don't care how far their target is
At any rate, if you really need so much healing that it's going to cause enmity issues without C5/6, guess what job you (still) need to invite to your party?
And I admit I'm no enmity expert, but wouldn't there not be a whole lot of difference in enmity between 5 cures for 400 each, and 4 cures for 500 each? Edited, Mar 27th 2012 10:39am by Fynlar
