What is the best raid healing class.
Shamans - Great spot heals and HR is awesome raid heals when people are clumped up. Lots of synergy between their spells. Can do adequate tank heals if they have to. Totems provide lots of buffs, hero is still useful, MTT and raid CD in 4.1, still no tank CD.
Druids - Lots of instant cast goodness - so pretty mobile. Pretty good tank heals if they have to. Their HoTs can kill the meters when raid healing. But they have very little burst heals (Chimaeron is teh suck). Have B-rez, fun Tree form, and Tranq is best heal in the game - but mitigation CDs are better and prevents more damage. Still no Tank CD.
Paladins - Best tank healers. LoH, Aura Mastery, and Bubble are all uber CDs. No HoTs or Shields, but best single target heals. HR + LoD to help out raid healers, you can do some spot healing on the raid while tank gets Beacon heals.
Paladin - Best Tank heals + some support raid heals/spot heals + Tank and Raid CDs
Holy Priest - Tons of Burst Raid Heals + Spot Healing + Tank CD
Disc Priest - Burst Raid Heals + absorbs + Tank and Raid CDs
Shaman - Good Tank Heals + Spot Healing + Clumped Raid Heals + MTT, Hero and Raid CD
Druid - Good Tank Heals + Raid Heals/Buffering + HoTs + B-rez + Superbig Raid Heal
So pick what playstyle you like best, since they're all pretty balanced.
