Top Classes/specs for Healing are?
There is no "should be" for healing numbers. This isn't dps where you can say with any certainty what numbers a spec should put up on a particular fight.
For most fights, there's certain things you'd expect to see, and some things that would raise the flag of being outta whack.
Predictive heavy damage? Disc should be using SS for that. Basic healing? Probably Prayer of Healing and Divine Aegis will be up there.
HPally sees a similar weight of things like Illuminated Healing, Eternal Flame, and Beacon. When you see a "bread and butter" spell that seems to be getting low usage, something is usually off somewhere.
Generally it gives a better picture of who's doing what they should, which numbers can't. You can only heal the damage that's there, and as everyone gets better at mechanics, damage goes down, and healing also drops respectively.

A correctly-played disc priest should have:
1: Spirit Shell (@30%)
2-4: Divine Aegis, Prayer of Healing, Atonement (@15%)
5+: Prayer of Mending, Power Word: Shield, Penance, assorted misc. effects (<15%)
(note: this is changing in 5.2. PWS goes up, Spirit Shell and Divine Aegis go down, amounts to be determined.)
A correctly-played holy priest should have the following effects listed and making up the overwhelming majority of their healing, with usually no one effect accounting for more than ~20% of total healing (the order will vary):
Divine Hymn, Prayer of Healing, Echo of Light, Prayer of Mending, Circle of Healing, Renew, Lightspring/Lightwell Renew, Cascade or Divine Star
A correctly-played paladin should have:
1: Illuminated Healing (@25%)
2-4: Eternal Flame or Light of Dawn, Holy Shock, Beacon of Light (@15%)
5+: Divine Light, Holy Radiance, Light's Hammer, Holy Light, Daybreak, assorted misc. effects (<10%; HR may go up to the 15% category in 25m, DL may do the same in 10m or when tank healing)
I don't know the current iterations of shamans/druids/monks very well. I do know that shamans should usually see Healing Rain on top, monks Renewing Mist, and druids Rejuvenation, but beyond that I'll leave it to the experts.
02/03/2013 03:30 AMPosted by SherbearNormally for druids, you'll see Rejuv, Wild Growth and Lifebloom as your top 3. That's the usual order for me anyways.
Depending on the raid size, encounter, and whether the efflo and direct heal are being lumped together, swiftmend can also make it into the top 3.
You didn't like this joke response, you say? Maybe you should read replies in one of the other 10,000 identical threads to this one.
