Raid Heals: Class/Spec and Why

I have a total of three potential healer class/specs and I would eventually like to get into raid healing. I have this priest, a resto druid, a resto shaman, and I can start a monk or paladin.

I would probably start with either LFRs or 10m. I have some experience with Priest Heals (Atonement), however I have never tried Holy. Resto healing as a druid in the early levels was fun, however I am looking for something a little more challenging. I like healing as a resto shaman, however mine is only level 80 (for now).

I find these classes equally appealing as healers as there are different situations they can be used in. However I seem to be skeptical about Holy Priest and Holy Paladins. Any thoughts?

I am incredibly biased towards resto druids, since my main is one. I've been raid healing on her for 4 years now and she's still my favorite healer (I've raided on all healing classes/specs with the exception of holy priests; never liked the play style of them).

I like the rolling HoTs, healing on the run, Treant form (tree heals ftw!), healing throughput, and tbaging gnomes in bear form. Can't go wrong there.

Tree form is quite fun... have to admit that.

And of course, druids.

Druids and priests really have one big thing in common: Easy to do "okay" with, pretty difficult to master.

I'd read over both of these and see which seems more intuitive and interesting to you. Additionally, it becomes pretty obvious if you want to do more than heal, that a druid may be more suitable because they have rdps and mdps offspecs, as well as the tank bear of awesome. If you're willing to take either another healing OS, or a rdps OS, priests may be a better fit.

Edit: I'd be wary of that guild. pst me if you're interested why.
