Tank > Healer > DPS

- if tanks die, gg, raid is dead in a few seconds

- if healers die, tanks can keep the raid going a while longer, maybe enough to clutch out a victory

- if DPS dies, lol, who f***ing cares

You try downing a boss with just tanks and heals.

I'd say it depends on the context. In 5-mans, healer is usually more important than the tank; in raids, the opposite is true.

However, someone on MMO Champion once made this great post that I can't find again. This is it, paraphrased.

"Your raid is like the bowl of cereal with milk that you might eat for breakfast. The tank is the bowl. If you don't have a good bowl, everything will go everywhere and your breakfast is ruined. The healers are the milk. If the milk is bad the breakfast is ruined, and if there's not enough milk your cereal will be too dry to really enjoy. DPS are like cereal. If you don't have enough of it you'll still be hungry once you've eaten it all, and if it's gone bad your breakfast is ruined.

So everything is important, but there is an order of importance."

Uhh no. Good healers are more likely to carry bad tanks than vice versa in a raid (unless aggro/mob control comes into play)

But you're literally a 5-man hero in blues so your opinion is kinda worthless.
