Where do druids stand on the healing totem

83 Night Elf Druid
I've played a paladin, shaman and priest, this is my first druid and have always looked at healing as a Healing Totem Pole.

In terms of output and single player healing, ae healing and boss tank healing, and arena/pvp where do druids currently rank in all 5 terms, considering top tier gear into the factor.

1 = Best
5 = Worst

Output =
Single Player =
AE Healing =
Boss Tank Healing =
Arena/PVP =

Output =1
Single Player = N/A
AE Healing = 1
Boss Tank Healing = 2
Arena/PVP =4

When I use 1 I don't use it in terms of better than others, I use it in terms of power.I think ranking healers is foolish.

Output = 2
Single Player = ? Do you mean single target, if so 5
AE Healing = 2
Boss Tank Healing = 4-5 Tied with HPriests at the bottom
Arena/PVP = 5

They would be the best raid healers (excluding utility/cooldowns) if paladins weren't the best at everything.

If I stand on the healing stream totem, it puts me head and shoulders above the shaman. :)

Lol, exactly what I was thinking.

From what little I've experienced on my druid and my shammy (being my main):

Output = 2
Single Player = 4-5
AE Healing = 2
Boss Tank Healing = 4-5
Arena/PVP = n/a (I've never pvped on my druid before)

Huge disclaimer here: I learned how to heal on my druid in LFR. I know right?! With my shaman as my main, I do so much better at triage healing on my shaman. I'm often scared to heal 5 mans on my druid even though she's geared as good as my shaman. =P

You also want to take positioning into account as well. With people all over the place or moving (i.e. Firelands), druids probably take the top spot for AoE and Output. For standing around in piles (i.e. Dragon Soul), we do drop down to 2 or 3. Yay for Hagara's lightning phase!

I thought you were asking why druids stood on your healing stream totem.
