MW PvP? Fun?

Monk
I was just wondering if end game PvP healing is fun. I got to 90 on my paladin and tried healing and it wasn't as *captivating* as monk healing is. I was wondering if it was just as fun endgame/geared as it is right now!
I had a trickle of fun doing Wrathion's quest, although I must admit that Random BG's suck.

Perhaps in Arenas or Rated BGs it gets better.
i love 2s as mw, have yet to try 3s
I've only started gearing up my Monk in Random Bg's, but I have to say, it's heaps of fun. I just won't die and I'm not even fully geared yet.
I love MW pvp so much that I'm doing it again on a lowbie (Whackju) because I leveled as BM/WW for pvp and came to it late. More than once I've topped both damage AND healing, but am almost always one or the other for the team

... and you can literally see the =O on low level prot warriors that wonder why they are losing to you 1v1.

It's a shame to come to it late, but glad you're here!
It's fun if you know what you're doing.
Cdew has even said that it is extremely fun when you spec, glyph, and reforge / gem the way he does.

Thanks for your responses guys! I'm really excited to get to 90 and try it out ^^

Truthfully I don't know if I like the idea of mastery, because of the multipliers associated with it on our spells it takes roughly 5-9% mastery to gain roughly a 1% increase in the spawn-rate on the orbs (Depending on the spell used).

So that means Cdew's 28% mastery is only a:
ReM = 4%
Chi Wave = 7%
Soothing Mist (Statue included) = 12%
EnV = 5.6%
Xuen/Self applied eminence = 5.6%
Statue applied eminence = 2.8%

Now I mean it could be fun, but it seems like a lot of wasted stats putting 9.5k mastery into that gear. Especially considering how much int/other stats he had to sacrifice to obtain that.

Yea I'm surprisingly hard to kill, and I'm wearing all low ilvl pve gear. Just tried it out for the first time this weekend. Yet that might be the new standard resil on everyone. I guess getting more gear would help me heal better, yet I would be taking the same amount of damage. Like I wonder how much better is a full tyran set vs like a 522 ilvl tot gear set.

It's about a 30% increase in healing due to all the PvP power on it. Cause the more stats associated with the PvE gear doesn't do anything when everything gets scaled down in instanced PvP.

if you do not mind queuing into hunters every game then sure, it's a ton of fun
MW is fun in bgs(haven't done ranked) and pretty strong in 2s, could be okay in 3s probably too but being able to spam Healing Spheres under yourself probably makes it stronger for 2s than 3s.

I am usually top healing in normal bgs.
My favorite are Rogues who can't kill me because they're dumb enough to stun me when they open up! Stunning a Mistweaver is not helpful. It only means you're going to miss for 2.5 seconds! Then there are the Warriors who charge in, Shockwave (MISS) and cry when I am able to get away!

Mistweaver is a lot of fun. DO IT!

Wait, you're a human...DON'T DO IT. (Human Monks are a disgrace in my eyes...hate em so badly)
I've been gearing this toon up for MW PVP lately, and I've found it to be fun. I love the mobility provided by Roll/Chi Torpedo. Setting up a Transcendence on high ground and baiting people to follow you when you jump down, just to port back up, is always fun. Healing sphere spam, a ranged disarm, and the CC provided through Disable, Paralysis, Spear Hand Strike, Leg Sweep etc etc
OMG Monk PVP healing is SO fun. I love it when melee tries to catch me... it makes me giggle.
@OP

Paladin healers are probably the most boring out of every healer I've endgamed- which is all of them (Cataclysm). I've been having a ton of fun with my MW monk, especially in random BGs. Once you get used to knowing every niche each of your abilities has, it's pretty easy to stay alive and heal a !@#$ ton. From what I've seen in PVP, MW's raw healing output appears to be exceptional. The key is knowing when to sphere spam (also getting used to leading people with spheres) and knowing when/how to stack your chi for blanketing focus friendlies with enveloping mists. Practicing your rotation between healingspheres/chiwave/RM/EH/ManaTeas -and- Thunder Tea>Soothing Mists> Surging Mists/EM will likely get your through even some of the bleakest situations in randoms. That's not even taking into account your life saving CDs...

That being said, I honestly don't know how they are in arenas right now.
If is very fun. Im at 1950 in RBGs right now as a MW.
