By what I have saw, what Qqshamanheal said is pretty accurate. Pallies are top of the boards again, druid, monks, and shamans are fairly equal (shamans being maybe slightly behind), and priests being last. It is still just beta though and changes come out every day it seems, so it could all change once things hit live servers.

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6147285873 has a good amount of information regarding the different healers atm. (Also note that right now on Beta item level is scaling to current levels so a lot of healers are using old overpowered set bonuses.) Sadly for those playing resto shamans:Shaman regen is an unmitigated disaster in raid testing. I am using 2pc T12 + 2 pc T13 for the regen set bonuses, plus 2 Spirit trinkets (Heart of Unliving + the on use Spirit trinket from one of the MoP heroics that scales up) and still going flat OOM in under 3 minutes. Did testing tonight with a paladin/monk/shaman as the healers.. shaman was ooming so fast even being conservative we had him go dps and 2 healed it because he basically was useless after a bit into the fight. Monk wasn't nearly as bad off but still seemed to lose mana at a fairly faster rate then the paladin.

Of course Paladins are topping the boards again, and Druids are excellent.

Here's a quick cheat sheet for where we are. Even "tuned" does not mean set in stone and ready for ship.

Priest -- Shadow roughly tuned.
Warlock -- roughly tuned except for Sacrifice.
Mage -- roughly tuned except Arcane and Invocation.
Druid -- Feral and Balance tuned except for Dream of Cenarius.
Paladin -- Ret roughly tuned.
Rogue -- tuned (but we'll look at Assassination numbers posted above).
Shaman -- tuned.
Hunter -- tuned.

We are working on monk, warrior and DK next.


Notice anything missing from the list? Like just about all healing specs?

Maybe you should wait until everything is finalised before deciding what class to play in MoP.

Or you could just make all 5 healers.

Or you could dedicate your time to being a better healer. Good players will out heal average players not matter what class they play. stop blaming your short coming on class changes.

priests are pure garbage. they are literally garbage in the shape of human form. ive been pretty hardcore and stuck with priest til now but its just not a fun class to play unless you like being oom literally all the time. so glad account wide achievements are here so i can finally stop playing this class. monk/paladin are so much more enjoyable

It's still to early to make your FOTM reroll choice. Wait a little bit.

Blizz could easily just delay longer and make sure the game is a lot better on release.

Old days are over though. It's their money, and they need it NOW!

im not going to play a class that i hate and dont enjoy the play style. i liked how disc was not how its going to be so i dont want to play the class anymore. After hearing how bad shamans regen is and lack of aoe im torn between paladin or druid although they are two completly different healing styles.

I'll still be maining my priest, even though I've heard mostly negative things. If disc/holy are complete garbage right now, most likely some of the problems will be addressed before or shortly after release. Between the two specs, I'm leaning back towards Holy.

If the issues are too big and hinder my ability to raid (if groups aren't taking priests), I have a holy paladin and resto druid alt on standby :P

pallies, druid, monk, shaman, priest

Mostly what I've been hearing from friends testing as well.

You are aware that ALL the healing classes have gone through a ton of changes for MoP, right?

Also, pallies are supposed to be bugged on the beta atm.
