I can’t help but think that Square Enix is taking a rather pointed dig at its players with this little cutscene. Too on the nose — either berating bad healers or parodying whiny party members who like to dump all over healers if they get hurt. Either way… ouch.

    That scene has stuck with me longer than almost anything else in FFXIV. I feel so much empathy with that healer!

    Things like this are what make me love FFXIV.
