Shaman or Paladin???

Halp! I need to make a choice now about which I should level and main in Cata. These are my two favorite classes and have no idea which to choose.

I will be a main spec healer and I like Resto and Holy a lot.

Perhaps you can help me by telling me how each functions at 85? My group probably will pair me with a Resto Druid for healing (at least for fights with 2 heals)

Whichever play style you like more. If you are really undecided and can not choose which class, ask your guild which they would prefer you to lvl to help out the guilds needs.

In my personal experience it depends on if you like challenges:
Paladin healing is easier and Paladins can fill more rolls.
Shaman is much harder in both PVE and PVP as resto.

Wait what? lol.

Unfortunately OP it really is down to your preference. Healing on any class is not hard. I personally prefer my paladin over my shaman simply because it is more complex, required alot more thinking and I enjoy that. Having said that, I also enjoy my shaman because of its no BS approach.

If you want to be engaged, managing CDs and buffs and having to choose between an arsenal of spells go the paladin but if you just wanna cut the cr*p and heal, go with the shaman

Alright lol well I decided to end up rolling with my Paladin. So far it's been pretty sweet (even though Ret is still bizarre) but hopefully I made the right choice, it was very difficult to choose.
