Definitely not joking, also not taking offense. First let me say I don't raid. Nobody raids on my server during a timezone I can make. Promise line is awesome for keeping up a weaker group tank as opposed to a fully raid geared legend. Any time you get ahead on heals and have time, drop a promise on them. Your passive AAs for promise will heal them as they get hit. Repeat, I don't care if promise ever wears off and actually heals, I like the aa to fire for extra help. Or if a nontank eats a bad riposte or two and gets low, promis is a nice ch you can drop on them isince they're not really in heavy danger and it casts quickly so you can get back to tank heals faster. Maybe I'm missing something with the strategy I use but it's quite frustrating whenever I group outside my usual circle and 99% or more of the playerbase has the spell blocked and argues and refuses to unblock it because they'll forget to reblock it after and don't want to die next time they have to use a merc. Frustrating.
