What Healing Class 5.3

85 Human Mage
4050
I'm rolling a new healer and was wondering which healer is most needed in 5.3 (and still viable for RBGS/arenas). Getting bored of my resto druid and wanting to level an alt but would like some input before I begin. Although I can get into RBG's as a resto druid they are frowned upon due to poor burst heals a lot of the time. I usually top charts in heals anyways but since I'm set on a new alt, I was wondering what class it should be.

I have begun leveling a resto shammy but am willing to hear out your opinions.

You should play what you enjoy.

Also, the "most desired" healing class is going to vary from RBG to RBG, because it's comp dependent. No class is unviable. So play what you like.

:D!

But yeah just play what you enjoy. Holy pallies always seem pretty strong but I prefer the mobility of a druid :D (and a monk too!).

If you said Shaman or Druid. Sorry. That is incorrect.

Shaman and druids are incredibly viable in PvP, so sorry, you are incorrect.

To the OP, I am currently leveling a resto shaman, and enjoying every minute of it. However, probably the best all-around healer right now, both PvE and PvP, is a holy paladin. Personally, I find them somewhat boring to play, at least compared to my druid, but they are just about indestructible in PvP (if your team knows what they are doing, of course), and they haven't been considered a "weak" healer, well, ever.

They can be a bit harder to level, if you aren't a fan of dungeon/BG spam, simply because they aren't very strong offensively if you are questing, and carrying two different sets of gear is a pain. In addition, they do not have the heirloom selection other healers do, so your poor lowbie pally will often find her/himself wearing newspapers and empty bourbon barrels while leveling.

Art imitates life? Good thing I like bourbon >.>

@OP, resto shammies are a ton of fun - you just have to learn to optimize your toolkit, just like any other class. That mastery!

But you're wrong about the class.
