If you look at the top arena teams, resto shamans are better represented than resto druids.

I believe the main difference is that druids have strong HoT's and shamans have better burst heals, which are more useful in arena settings. I'm not sure about druids, but shamans also offer a lot of mobility and utility (totems, dispell, counterspell, cleanse, hex). You'll love it when a shaman slows down a mage, strips him of his shields and shut down his spells.
I'd rather have to kill a resto druid than a resto shaman. Both are susceptible to cleaves and neither synergize well with a ret pally. Overall I think a resto druid would do better because of the utility they bring and the ret paladin can make up for the lack of the resto druids defensive cooldowns. The only reason I'd bring a resto shaman is because of the snare that a ret lacks. It's dispelable though so I don't know if it's worth it.

Not sure if troll
This is 2's... be like every other Ret Paladin and run with a Unh Dk, or a Rogue. Kill clothies, get 96 rating, move on to the next game.

And Resto shaman. Everything's better than a resto druid. A ret paladin has better heals than a resto druid. Resto druids have very tough time dealing with swaps to other members because they have to put up a TON of more hots. They don't react well to burst either except for a 3 minute cooldown tree. Past that they like, die, and stuff.
