Herro everyone..

I am wondering which healer I should roll for PvP (and maybe a little PvE) if I prefer to play a more defensive roll. I also generalllly prefer being ranged.

Thank you :D

Hear that? This guy wants a ranged healer. That means, no rogues, warriors, nada!

Pretty sure you answered your question with the title of your post. :P Pick a healer. Any healer will do. Seriously.

If you don't like melee don't be a monk.

If you prefer a decent healer that plays a defensive game (also known as "running away"), you can't get much better than a druid!

Definitely monk is out. They're all about the melee healing.

I disagree.. I rarely Melee Heal.. You can heal as a monk from ranged without any issues.. Dont listen to them.. Though questing sucks as you have to melee, and well I hate Melee..

You're gimping yourself, and your raid, if you never melee heal. Just ask Mist...

Melee healing is so strong... if you are healing as a Monk and are not in Melee... you are doing it quite wrong

If you don't have a strong preference, look at the styles and see which of their other skills, preemptive vs reactive vs shield, and the dual specs appeal to you.

I am a casual BG PVPer and I always feel ridiculous. I mean people just don't seem to kill me, I always have top healing by a ridiculous amount, and I have fun doing it. Most people complain about MW PVP but I just don't get what they complain about. I would like to do arenas but none of my friends want to do it.

Personaly I would recomened priest for you. You have 2 very different specs to choose from. It doesn't get more Defensive then Disc. for any of the healers. You have to plan ahead for what damage is going to come and you have a ton of Defensive abillities. If you get bored of it you can switch it up and go Holy. Between those 2 specs you can really davel between all the other healing specs and see what axpects you like best about healing.

That wasnt what I was saying..

I said you do not HAVE to melee heal..

I understand that I am no "min / Maxing" as much as I should by not really Melee Healing.. But I am not gimping my raid..

At the level I and my friends play this game.. I am perfectly fine Ranged healing.. And am very very competitive with most healers I come across, even in LFR.. Shrug..

While I do value your opinion Mist.. and I believe I agreed a lot with you back when you were a Shaman named Rain.. I think that was you..

Either way, its obvious that you play at a level beyond what I and my friends play at.. And I would imagine your far above the level that the OP posts at.. So to say that Ranged Healing for MW's is not viable is not entirely true.. I believe Ranged healing as a MW is viable even at High End raiding.. Though as you say, it is not as good as Melee healing..
