Anyone who thinks otherwise just needs to look at the guilds who are raiding right now. All of them are stacking paladin healers. My friend's guild forced him to go holy for raiding after he spent the last 18 months as ret (and one of their top DPS). Pallies are simply the best healers by about a 10-15% margin right now.
Any guild who forces a player to switch specs a few weeks after an expac hits, before everyone is fully geared and before the impending tweaks, is a dumb guild. Fact of the matter is, this game is not balanced around us runing around in quest gear. After a few weeks when everyone is geared and pallys are still "best healers ever" then you have a right to be upset. I know druid and sham healers who are doing perfectly fine healing heroics, the only class that needs help imo are priest, every other class should spend less time crying on forums and more time learning how to heal
Yeah, I'm sure the guilds who are 9/12+ right now in raids are a bunch of dummies who have no idea how to play this game.
I'm not talking about heroics. Any healer can heal heroics, yes (although they are certainly easier for pallies). Throughput in raids is, conservatively, about 10% higher for paladins vs. other healing specs and pallies will be justifiably nerfed in the near future.
