World pvp healer

Arenas
G'day mate, how's it going, alright?

I've got a Insta90 boost to use and would like to create a healer for the purposes of large scale wpvp (40v40)

I'm wondering what healer might be most effective/disruptive for that sort of pvp, keeping in mind fps tends to drop like crazy so classes with good passive healing are useful.

I'm guessing Druid will be the #1 answer but I've already got a 90 fdruid.

Much appreciated, ta
I bet you are wearing a wife beater with the Australian flag on it.
ret paladin
Probably paladin or druid.

Passive healing has been (rightly) nerfed in WoD. In MoP I would have said resto shaman- just use healing stream on cd, but that has been nerfed. I'd probably say holy priest in WoD- lightwell heals automatically and you can just use circle of healing on cooldown and blanket the raid with renews. About as passive as you're going to get in WoD.

I was also considering a holy priest, pretty keen on that..

I'm just trying to think if theres any healers with cd's that have a large impact on a 40v40 fight.

Cheers for the feedback so far.
I would say priest. Whether it's disc with holy nova and pre-shielding with spirit shell/ PW:S or holy with renews, echo of light, light well, and many other great raid healing tools you can't go wrong.
holy paladin hands down
Any reason holy paladin is recommended? I figured they were much more suited to only healing 2-3 targets rather than.. Like.. 40

I'm leaning heavily on holy priest, I figure if I die then I get a good 15~ seconds worth of huge heals at least.
They always have been decent in group healing and LOH is useable. But they lack self-peels and instants/ prehealing shields. So if even as much as 2 geared people are sitting on you with CC, interrupts and no1 helps you bye bye. One of the easiest healers to take down atm.

Priest is much more self-sufficient tanky, don't need to cast much.

And passive healing? I don't think Pallys have any except that new beacon talent at 100 I think. Druid have yseras gift but you can't rely on that. Disc has divine bulwark and focused will not necessarily a heal but defensive passive where you don't need to press a single button.
Alright I'm pretty convinced on a priest, are there any redeeming qualities for rshams or monks in a 40v40 situation?

Thanks.
