Please post what you think the best healing class is for random BG's without friends or guildies to help.

OP, to answer your question... the best are the ones who can maximize their class's potential while also maintaining healing with a competent party/raid.

My post was 1 1/2 sentences.

The reading comprehension of peeps is abysmal these days.

Edit: Cut post to 1 sentence to make it easier to read.

He's talking about pvp, not pve. In a random bg any healer will suffice really if you don't plan on doing RBGs or even arena.

If I had to choose, I'd probably say paladin > shaman > druid > priest/monk

Personally I prefer a druid because of the mobility, but pvping on my paladin was my second favorite :) Their survivability is really nice, especially when alone but it's easier for a druid to get away (until displacer beast gets nerfed :P). There really isn't a "best" class for pvp when it comes to being noncompetitive, comes down to who you're running with in a random and what you enjoy.

I like holy priest in randoms.

You can't get away with the same things in arena or RBGs so your toolkit gets cut down there, but they are fun in randoms. You won't get off a Divine Hymn against a coordinated team, but in a random I do it all the time.

I go in as shadow because that is really fun, but will switch to holy if we are low on healers. Shadow PvP gear is just fine for healing as holy in randoms.
