Competitive pvp healing primarily

The 2 most appealing to me right now is shaman and paladin what does the healing community suggest and why?

Other class suggestions are welcome but please explain what makes those ones appealing too.

What do you mean by competitive? PvE? PvP? Raids (10m or 25m)?

Played well, they are all competitive (PvE), so choose the one whose style appeals to you the most.

While I always welcome a new healer, if you are looking to meters for your answer, you should probably stay dps.

Just my opinion.

There's a rank 1 resto shaman streaming right now on twitch.tv, playing with Talbadar. Check that out for an idea of what rests shaman can do in pvp.

I haven't played at 90, so this is just based on opinions from 85-89 bgs and watching streams. Paladin mana seems better, and as always they are damn hard to kill. With double freedom mobility is pretty good as well.

That's said I've been having more fun on my shaman. Fun is relative, so you may not have the same experience. I like how much I can piss off the other team. Wind Shear, frost shock root, purge spam, capacitor totem. Healing tide is like an instant cast tranquility that keeps everybody alive while I carry on with other things.

But I definitely die to warriors and dks faster on my shaman. :(

You can always level it up a little and decide if druid is what you want to do :P

I've enjoyed playing a druid in both PvE and in PvP personally :)

Which bracket are you looking at?

I looked at 3v3 for my battlegroup and a resto druid is in the #2 group.

You can probably find arena videos or live streams for a resto druid.
