Healing cast on the move

Hunters, Mages, Warlocks get DPS cast on the move, why not give it to healers?

Well, isn't it about balanced? I can cast pw shield, barrier, pain supp (or GS) mending, renew on the move, can do penance and holy fire if glyphed. I have to stand and hard cast flash heal, heal, greater heal, PoH, hymn of hope, divine hymn (if holy), smite etc.

I've only played mage but I know there are things they can cast while moving and others they cannot. I don't think we should be able to cast EVERYTHING while on the move.

For Hunters, Mages and Warlocks they can cast some things on the move and sometimes that's because they use a cooldown. You don't see a hunter casting Revive Pet while running. Some healing specs have similar abilities. Healers do have instant casts to use while moving.

Just a guess but you may be seeing a handicap of the click type addon healing. If they move with their mouse and click cast you will see a healer stop to cast. If they cycle through their targets with their keyboard and cast with a keybind, they can keep running.

It looks silly in PvP when a healer is chasing (or running away from) something and stops to cast an instant cast that could have been cast on the run.

EDIT: Not only can I heal on the run, I can DPS and CC on the run.

I went back to do a Firelands once. Casting Soothing Mist while moving on Alysrazor was awesome

Several healers do. Instant casts for one (druids are of course big on this, but all healers have a few) and shaman get a cd that makes them cast everything while moving too. Some could argue melee mistweaver is also mobile, though I am a bit behind in the MW community, I hear melee healing is less viable at top levels?

A resto druid can also Symbiosis a shaman to get Spirit Walker's Grace to cast on the run. Mobile Tranq is fun!

As long-time user of click-to-cast addons, I have never had this issue. The only time I have issues with moving and casting at the same time is when I have to use both my strafe keys AND my mouse at the same time.

You don't have to move with your mouse 100% of the time as a healer. You can use that drive button to get some healing out while on the run.

I can cast while moving! (for 20 seconds out of every 2 minutes)

Warlocks can cast everything on the move all the time with a level 90 talent.

This model would definitely not work for a healer, however. Remember Alysrazor? Healing it was sooo boring during the heavy movement parts. You could just use whatever you wanted all the time without worrying about whether you could get that cast off. Yes i know it also gave unlimited mana but still.

Not to mention it would take away one of the ONLY advantages resto druids have over other healers.
