Rerolling to a healer

I have finally decided to reroll to a healer. I have been a feral Druid and lock and I want a new challenge, so healing is what I want to do. Lately all I have been doing is pvping. I do many 3's, 2's for fun and a ton of rated battlegrounds. I will do random battlegrounds for fun also. I want it to take very much skill to master, but be worth it when I finally do. I also love seeing lots of numbers flying around my screen...healing or dpsing. Obviously because I pvp so much, I want to be able to stay alive, or at least have defense cool downs. As for healing, which i will be focusing on, i want to be able to heal myself or a partner through burst scenarios. I want to be very mobile in my specs. i do not want to be OP, but i do want the specs to be viable. I am very competitive, so topping or being near the top of damage or healing is a must. I want to be wanted in groups. I don't just want a class for this patch, I want to be able to log onto this character every day and know ill have fun and not get bored, i want it to be my main for as long as I play wow. Does this sound like any healers?

Considering you're switching mains already, I don't know how much of that will hold true :P You say you have a druid already, why not just go resto on your druid? They're very mobile healers and lots of fun. Otherwise I'd say Paladin or Shaman.

All healers can top the charts fairly easily in pvp, but in the end it doesn't really matter.

I want it all on one toon, dpsing and healing. Is there a specific healer that fits my description?

resto druid is your safest bet. pallies and resto shams have derpy dps specs that in the case of a resto sham, aren't pvp viable (enhancement is barely under the bar) or in the case of a paladin, are 2 minute wonders. resto/feral is the only combo that would have a good healer AND dps spec in one package

Monks are not considered the highest in terms of healing in battlegrounds/pvp in general.

Both resto/feral are doing quite well.

Okay, so any suggestions for an absolute permanent healer? Through thick and thin

Glyphing regrowth helps that, as does popping a damage reduction cooldown or letting your lifebloom expire. It's not as bad as people say if played well, and as an added bonus, has a high skill cap with powershifting.
