I'd like to know if there are any of you who enjoy healing in PVP as Disc or Holy in general. I'm not really interested in whether you are successful or not. I'm just interested in if you enjoy it, if you find it fun and rewarding. Is it something you would do without reward? I know fun is very subjective, so obviously the discussion here will also be subjective.
My experiences in PVP as a healing Priest in cata so far has been mostly negative. I find that I am very easy to lock down and most, if not all strategies in the 3v3 arena bracket seem to be to destroy the healer as quickly as possible. Other players have many tools to prevent me from casting anything and the majority of the time I am actually not playing the character. Now of coarse, I realize that wihtout assistance from my team, I will be locked down and destroyed. The type of PVP is irrelevant, it could be Arena, Battlegrounds or World PVP, it really doesn't matter. My experience is the same. Its just not fun.
My Frost Mage however, is like looking at the flip side to this experience. It is extremely rewarding, it is fun and I would do it all day without reward. Playing a Frost Mage is extremely fun solo and even more fun with a team.
Is playing a Priest Healer only fun if people babysit you?
