All five (or six) healers, roll call!

90 Troll Shaman

Towards the end of Cataclysm I made a thread asking some questions to those who had all the healers. Here it is:

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6368777333

It went very well and most comments were positive and interesting.

Well, now I have all five up to 90. I did not separate out disc and holy priest in the original, but I will in this one. I played holy at 90 as well as disc though I leveled as disc.

So here are your questions:

1. In what order did you level your healers from 85 to 90?

2. Which feels the most powerful?

3. Which is the most fun?

4. Which healer would you be most likely to level another one of?

5. Has your main changed since Cataclysm?

6. Which healer are you likely to play in Warlords of Draenor?

1. In what order did you level your healers from 85 to 90?

druid, disc, monk, paladin, shaman, holy

2. Which feels the most powerful?

disc in general, though in some situations druid feels very strong.

3. Which is the most fun?

In order, disc, monk, druid, paladin, holy, shaman. The long cast times of shaman seemed really irritating to me this time around for some reason. The melee healing aspect of monks is great fun, but there are plenty of fights where you can't do it. I like Atonement and shielding.

4. Which healer would you be most likely to level another one of?

I have two more priests at about 50 or 60 and a monk at 70, so I guess one of those. While paladin is effective, I found it pretty boring in this expansion.

5. Has your main changed since Cataclysm?

My main was my disc priest. I think right now my monk is slightly higher, but they are close and I don't really have a main.

6. Which healer are you likely to play in Warlords of Draenor?

For sure priest and monk, I may change this shaman to an orc if it turns out orcs have all the good stuff in Warlords of Draenor.

1) Paladin, Priest, Shaman, Monk, Druid

2) In 10 man, Disc.

3) Paladin > Holy Priest > Shaman > Druid >>> MW Monk >>>>>>> Disc

4) None. I've got 2 priests and one of every other healer class. I don't want to level another unless I absolutely need to.

5) Nope, been playing a Holy Paladin since I first started raiding in FL

6) Holy Paladin, no plans on changing my main.

1. In what order did you level your healers from 85 to 90?


Mistweaver, Iritha, shaman, 2nd priest, paladin.

2. Which feels the most powerful?


haven't raided on the MW since late T14; felt more powerful on my shaman once I brought her in. I feel most powerful on my priests, even though shaman healing is also damn lovely atm. I've barely done anything on the paladin, on whom I've never done more than LFR, and even that not since 5.4 hit (too busy).

3. Which is the most fun?


Disc priest, shaman next.

4. Which healer would you be most likely to level another one of?


Priest, for tl;dr reasons... but shaman a close second.

5. Has your main changed since Cataclysm?


ugh, yes. This was my main through the last half of Wrath & all of Cata.

At the end of Cata I decided I'd go Mistweaver for MoP because we all knew it was going to be really strong and I figured it would bring versatility to my 10man raid (we were 2 priests & a resto druid in Cata). instead, the resto druid decided "someone has to be a disc priest" and went Disc so we had 2 priests anyway, plus MW didn't end up appealing to me.

So since the resto druid had already gone Disc, and I didn't feel we should 3-heal 10man with 3 priests (lol), I grabbed my shaman and finished T14 and all of T15 on her. She's still my main on my 10man server, but that guild... is on a lonnnnnnnng break from raiding now, so I transfered Iritha to another realm and am raiding on her now.

6. Which healer are you likely to play in Warlords of Draenor?


Iritha, and my shaman.

1. In what order did you level your healers from 85 to 90?


priest, I actually don't heal on my other healers but I leveled a druid next and a paladin after that for the toons that can heal. Alts to me are nothing more than money making sluts.

2. Which feels the most powerful?


Disc. The only time it was weak blizzard overbuffed the crap out of it and other healers have suffered the entire expansion because of it.

3. Which is the most fun?


I enjoy holy a lot more, but I play disc because there is no room for holy in heroic ten man unless my raid decides to let me solo heal heroic Garrosh when we get there I suppose.

4. Which healer would you be most likely to level another one of?


I will get to my monk...eventually...maybe...if I need another money making !@#$. Dem farms for golden lotus. (sorry prolly not the best person for your thread but I'm bored.)

5. Has your main changed since Cataclysm?


Nope, priest for life, although I was a hunter main in Wrath, and switched to priest in Cata.

6. Which healer are you likely to play in Warlords of Draenor?


Priest for life. Although I hope to dear god that blizzard balances holy and disc and makes them both desirable in mythic content and then makes them both want similar stats so I don't have to carry around 2 sets of gear since we are losing reforging so I can play both specs depending on the boss fight without being gimped in one of the specs. Without an absorbtion overhaul though I'll prolly have to stick to disc.

1. Druid, Monk, Priest, Shammy, Pally

2. Monk >:D no DPS set necessary. Druid feels good again though.

3. Monk again, there's never a second I'm NOT doing something which keeps the boredom away. Then I guess Druid, Priest, Shammy, Pally in descending order.

4. Druid if I had the ambition since I have two Monks already. xD

5. Yes. Had been a Druid since late BC and stayed one till mid-T14.

6. Hopefully, crossing my fingers here, Monk still. The class just has a lot of issues that need some work and the Druid is still my second hand mantreeowl.

2. Which feels the most powerful?


Paladin

3. Which is the most fun?


Shaman by a country mile

4. Which healer would you be most likely to level another one of?


Already have two paladins, though i only leveled one to 90. Other is still at 85.

5. Has your main changed since Cataclysm?


Not since Wrath though i did play a bit of T15 as a paladin due to comp. Mained a holy paladin prior to learning the way of the shaman.

Shaman <3

That original thread makes me a tad sad. So many dark portraits :(

My monk is sitting at 13, I can't bring myself to level *another* lowbie. I'm going to use the instant 90 boost on her.

1. In what order did you level your healers from 85 to 90?

Druid, horde druid, priest, third druid, paladin, shaman, second paladin. Second shaman is locked at 85 as a bank alt.

2. Which feels the most powerful?

I haven't been raiding consistently for the last two tiers so I'm not really sure. Probably my priest since I can bypass entire mechanics on her.

3. Which is the most fun?

Enjoying both my druids and my priest.

4. Which healer would you be most likely to level another one of?

I've been tempted to level another priest but can't bring myself to go thru the leveling process yet again. If they get rid of Chakra that might be enough motivation because I love the concept of Holy but despise that mechanic.

5. Has your main changed since Cataclysm?

No. The day I quit my druid will be the day I unsub from the game.

6. Which healer are you likely to play in Warlords of Draenor?

Druid with priest as my primary alt.

1. In what order did you level your healers from 85 to 90?

Paladin, monk I think, priest, druid, shaman (88 /cry)

2. Which feels the most powerful?

Disc priest would if it were geared and I knew how to play it. Otherwise, druid.

3. Which is the most fun?

Druid. Feels very free-form, I can choose how I want to get targets up. Other specs feel very stiff - paladin especially.

4. Which healer would you be most likely to level another one of?

Druid because I can only have 2/4 specs at a time, what is this garbage

5. Has your main changed since Cataclysm?

Yes. The only healer I mained in cata was paladin and that was at the end of the expansion.

6. Which healer are you likely to play in Warlords of Draenor?

Druid/priest/shaman - going to figure out which is gonna be the most of fun in beta. Probably stick with druid.. I might want to try guardian :O

1. In what order did you level your healers from 85 to 90?


Monk, Druid, Priest. Paladin and Shaman are at 86.

2. Which feels the most powerful?


I haven't touched my priest since the middle of ToT, and my druid isn't that geared, so Monk, just because I can quest/solo stuff while still being in MW spec.

3. Which is the most fun?


Monk.

4. Which healer would you be most likely to level another one of?


I already have a level 50 monk that I level during the weekends if I'm bored.

5. Has your main changed since Cataclysm?


Yes, from druid to monk.

6. Which healer are you likely to play in Warlords of Draenor?


Monk.

    Shaman since 5.4

    3. Which is the most fun?
    Priest

    Pally cause I gave mine away and I need another one. I have 4 priests and, 2 pallys, 2 druids....(other servers, etc.)

    Yes but then it changed back. Priest > Shaman > Priest

    6. Which healer are you likely to play in Warlords of Draenor?
    Priest, but will dabble in Shaman and Druid. Likely won't touch the other 2 much beyond learning their basics.

Very interesting responses so far, thanks for keeping it positive.

So far, without doing the numbers, it feels like people are enjoying monk and druid and feeling that priest is needed in raids.

I think the "most fun" answer will be very interesting for a group of healers that has played them all. I read a lot of stuff on the forums by people who have obviously only played one or two healing classes but think they know all about all of them.

2 Disc
3 Druid
4 Shaman(mainly because I have a 2nd shaman at 85 i will level before 6.0)
5 No
6 Paladin will remain my main unless blizzard somehow totally ruined them, being say 2nd worst would not be enough.

1. Shaman>Priest (Holy)>Mistweaver. I never got around to level my holy paladin (lvl 85) to 90 nor ever felt interested to level a Druid again (had a lvl 80 in Wrath).

2. Raw throughput? Shaman and Holy priest
Pure utility? Paladin
Strongest of all? Disc.

3. Tied Shaman and Holy priest for me. I love reactive healers.

4. Shaman or Priest.

5. Nope. Still Shaman.

6. Shaman or Holy Priest.

My ears ooze with bias!

Priest; It is also the most geared, though. Monk felt strong when it was geared, too.

Priest (Holy). Hate Disc.

Monk

Used to play Rdruid / Hpriest in raids. I've dropped the druid.

Priest and Monk for sure. Haven't decided which first, though.
