White Mage advice needed

I’ve been helping two dps friends out in clearing content by queuing as tank or healer, depending on the duty and queue time. I usually roll healer because I know I’ll help with dps if I can.

However, I’m far from the best, and I might even argue that I’m kind of flailing around when it comes to healer roles at times. I went SCH in low level dungeons in part because of how comfortable it is to almost full-time CS, but with Heavensward SCH went from comfortable to awkward for me, so I’ve been running as WHM.

Through the leveling dungeons there weren’t many issues because level sync was so tight that both friends were able to do well with the story gear, but as soon as we hit Research Facility I realized there was going to be an uphill climb for them...

Interpreting the Rising Poem

Took the pillars thing an entirely different way, granted I only had the one translation to work off and these things usually have multiple meanings anyway…

I took the Pillar of Strife to be Garlemald, with Ala Mhigo despairing underneath their heel…
Then I took the Pillar of Eddying Life (The Circle of Life?) to reference the rise of Primals… Specifically Garuda, given the mention of gales and the upcoming new dungeons… Basically, we live to die, and thus we struggle (tying back to strife) and ultimately pray for some form of salvation, allowing Primals to rise from that faith…

I still very much see the story going down the “Ascians want a world without death!” route (with that also likely being how things once were), and that bias is definitely showing with this interpretation… The Circl...

Does anyone actually like “expert” roulette?

If you do, what do you like about it? If you don’t, what do you dislike? What elements of the feature should be preserved, and what should be revised or removed? Is the process of running it fun for you, or would you prefer that the rewards were shifted to other avenues that are equally as profitable?

Let’s discuss.

For myself, I won’t say much except that I find completing expert roulette daily so mind-numbingly boring that I will take any other avenue to cap tomestones for the week, be it runs of other content like Weeping City/Nidhogg EX, Aquapolis, or Frontlines. I feel like the extremely restrictive pipelines we have for obtaining relevant ilevel gear is funneling us into this content that no one particularly enjoys, and I was curious if my opinion is in the minority...
