Im thinking to play a shaman, but I read some guide and im no longer sure if it the right class to choose
AoE heal PvE - Classes
Resto shaman have amazing raid utility through mana tide totem and great throughput cooldowns, but only really shine on fights that don't require too much movement and allow the raid to stack.
Paladins also have amazing raid utility and are very strong healers all around (with the exception that they are somewhat lacking for heavy movement fights)
For predictable short periods of intense damage, discipline priests are unparalleled, because they have time to stack shields on the raid.
For movement-heavy fights, resto druids are amazing healers, because they rely on instant-cast abilities.
Holy priests and mistweavers are also powerful raid healers in their own right
I'd go with either a resto druid or holy priest to be honest, as they have the largest tool kit for aoe/spread mechanics
This. They have the best for "aoe raid" healing. Pallis, disc priests, and shammies tend to only be able to affect certain memebers at once. for example, disc can only aoe heal (not bubble but heal) through prayer of healing, which only works for a party. likewise, shammies can drop healing rain for all raiders, but it's only in a small aoe. Holy priests have a couple of abilities like PoM, CoH, t6 talent, etc. that can heal multiple people who are far away from each other. As for resto druids, they have hots they can blanket the raid with (like shammyjake said). it makes aoe healing pretty sweet for those two.
