I cannot decide whether I want to be a shaman or a priest. I just wanted to know all of your input to what would be the most fun class to play as a healer, because a great majority of my characters are damage.
Thanks!

They are all fun. Hard to say though what other people find fun.

If you want a healer that can put out damage as well disc priests and mw monks are the way to go. Tbh I love holy pallys, decent ccs, good normal and burst heals, and denounce is just awesome.

I tried playing my pally as holy but I did not like it. I'll stick with him as my tanking toon. I am currently leveling a resto druid and must say I enjoy healing as a druid so far.

I really wish I made this character holy because I love them, but I realized how fun it was too late :/

People in my guild said resto druid, but I've never actually gotten very far with them, I think the highest level one I have is 30. Maybe I'll try it again.

It's all based on personal preference in the end. A lot of people like their holy paladins and MAYBE if I would have tried playing holy on him while leveling him I would like him.... but at max level trying to learn a COMPLETELY different play style is so damn confusing and leaves you with no idea of what you are doing. That is more than likely why I can't stand playing as holy on him.

I have healed using them all. It is completely subjective but I have found the enjoyment level in the following order (the order has nothing to do with which class heals the best).
Shaman>Druid>Monk>Pally>Priest

That's my 2 cents.

Out of those two I choose priest (obv) but I honestly find all the healer classes fun to play at times. Why not both :P?

Monks are the only fun healer.

I've heard good things about monks. I'll try it.

That's true, I'll probably play both anyway.

Shaman are cooldown and burst masters, and you have a melee spec you can swap into to wreck some faces. Making everyone jump into your healing rain, or leading when you need to unleash for a giant heal are some of the more fun parts, but taking all your cooldowns can get a bit tiresome.

Priests are toolbox healers. A button for every situation, but you have to learn when to use those buttons. But it is a lot of fun murdering mobs with your healing spec (Atonement heals or Red Chakra). Priest also gives you two different heal specs if you feel like you want a change without having to level another class.

IMO, it goes Monk>Priest>Shaman>Paladin>Druid, but that's personal preference.

I'm a big fan of disc, in pve. It may sound silly, but penance is simply one of the most fun healing spells I've ever had the pleasure of casting. The sound and graphic is just so visceral. When I hear that FWOOSH FWOOSH FWOOSH I know things are stayin' alive.

Absolutely. Now that I've gotten into my mistweaver and know how to be effective as one, I'll never go back to my priest. (disc is booooring.)

I tried them all. Love druids and holy priests.

In higher level dungeons (50-90), the MOST healers I have seen are shamans and monks, in this order.
Priests not so much, and h pallys are totally missing. Hence, my respect to all you h pallys !!

I am not saying that I am correct, I am speaking based on my experience. However, I do dungeons A LOT. Let's say I am constantly queueing on my <90 toons.

P.S BEST healing spell ever remains Tranquility.

I'm in the same boat as others. I have my 90 Holy Pally who is specced for pvp and my 85 druid that I am working on. I'm trying to figure out which toon that I want to raid heal with. I'm leaning more toward leveling this guy up. Any thoughts? Sorry if its in the wrong thread. I'm just kind of stuck.

I main as a priest but I am starting to really love the challenge, wide toolkit and cooldowns that shaman provide.

There are three fun things about being a monk:
1)Chi torpedo
2)The second charge of chi torpedo
3)Doing more damage than bad dps/dps in bad gear in scenarios and dungeons.

With the right talent choice you even get a bonus chi torpedo!

I think all the healing classes are fun. I love healing and I love how it is different yet comfortably same on the various classes. Over the years I've mained a shaman, druid, and priest, often rotating between the three at max level.

I think druid is probably the most fun because of all the non healing stuff we can do. And I grudgingly admit that I am starting to really enjoy moonkin.

The only healer I haven't tried yet is monk, but I have heard they are really fun and they have the potential to blow every other healer out of the water when played well.

Answers to this question will always vary because it's really a matter of personal opinion. Everyone is different.

I've healed with all healing classes. That said, here's my order of most fun to play to least fun...

Most Fun <<--- Shaman -- Paladin -- Holy Priest -- Disc Priest -- Druid -- Monk --->> Least Fun
