Need help - which healer do I choose?

7 posts in this topic

Hello everybody,

I started at the end of WoD after a very long break. 

Now that I reached 110 with my main (warlock affliction), I am not getting the fun out of the game.

So I started twinking with my druid as tank which is fine.

 

Now to my question: My second twink will be a healer - but which one?

I wanna go mythic+ and maybe raiding (not 100% sure about that)

 

I don't want a resto druid yet (because tanking with it is enough so far), and I don't like a paladin as a heal because I won't enjoy
tho I heard resto druid is in a weak spot right now?

So it's between:

Priest (holy I guess, even tho i heard it's very weak right now? Is that true?)
Shaman (restoration, I played that in legion and it was solid - how about now?)
Monk (mistweaver, never even switched to that specialisation, but I wouldn't mind if its good and enjoyable)

 

Anyone can give me helpful advice regarding this?

 

If these question does not belong here, please give me some help with finding something meta-related, where I can see why which healer/tank etc is good right now.

 

Sincere regards

Hello,

I'm not sure where did you hear that a resto druid is in a weak spot now because it's actually completely the opposite: resto druids are counted as the best healers together with resto shamans in raids and are the best healers for Mythic+ (in general, because different keys would let different classes to shine). :)

What you should choose, it's up to your personal preferences and play style. There are a lot of threads like this on the different WoW forums (and here on IV too) but it always come to this: if you are not raiding Mythic in Top-50, choose whatever you enjoy, otherwise there's a good chance you would be told by your RL what to play.

Definitely agree with this. As someone that tanked M+8-10 multiple times on the beta, I felt VERY comfortable with a Druid healer behind me.

Let me say it another way. I really don't like druid for PvE. I love it in PvP but I'm not enjoying it in PvE.

And I've to change my target to: Only mythic+ and NO raiding.

 

So does this changes anything of my options? I am bad at deciding ;(

 

Let's say I dont like resto-druid and holy-pala... I dont like monk either because of the other two speccs of his...

 

So there is only priest and shaman... is there a winner in regard of mythic+?

So if you like tanking on the Druid Tank, before you turn in a quest switch to Resto and turn in the quest for a second set of gear.  

I actually like Boomkin form on my Druid now as well as healing.  But I used to only tank / heal.  Play what makes you happy,.

You can pick either.

I'm maining a resto shaman and if you don't like resto druid, I'd say the shaman is a winner for M+. No other healing class has even close to a shaman's amount of utilities that would be a huge help in runs. We are the only healing class that have Hero, mass stun and a ranged interrupt on a short CD, group speed boost every 2 min, self ress (save a bress for dps) and a possibility for an additional bress (in talents). Plus our major healing CDs may be cast on move if needed.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hello everyone!

      I am searching for a WA that shows the icon of the trinket Mote of Sancification and a timer with the cooldown. I am using this trinket lately and I would like to know if it's on cooldown or not during fights.
      I looked online for a lot of them but couldn't find any that were up to date and actually works.

      Stinki Monki Finger (SMF), formed 28th April 2005, was the longest standing raiding guild on Hellscream. On Dec 15th 2016 we made the decision to transfer our guild to Tarren Mill in search of new opportunities and secure a strong future for the guild and its community. We have been around to see all of Vanilla, Burning Crusade, Wrath, Cataclysm, MoP, WoD & now time for Legion.
      We always strive for a nice and relaxed atmosphere within the guild and always show optimism for killing future bosses.

      Stinki Monki Finger is currently searching for:
      Hunter
      Shadow Priest

      Strong applications from all classes/roles will also be considered. This means Melee aswell, so dont be afraid to drop by! :)

      We require you to have previous experience at raiding Heroic or Mythic mode content and be available for atleast 2-3 raids per week.

      Current progress
      7/7 M, ToV 1/3 M.

      Main raid schedule:
      Wednesday 20:00-23:00
      Sunday 20:00-23:00
      Monday 20:00-23:00

      We are also organising Mythic dungeons outside of raid times and there is a possibility of an Alt Raid.

      We have been a guild since Vanilla and known each other for over 10 years. Our goal is to always aim for the highest difficulty while raiding in a relaxed atmosphere. We keep in contact with each other through various games and you will definitely feel the guilds comradeship when playing with us.

      If you have any questions feel free to contact Finesse or Ergunk#2122 for a chat.

      Kind regards,
      Ergunk

      Who we are
      <Hollow> is a semi-hardcore guild created by a group of friends, experienced players, that raided HC together in WOTLK. We reunited and transfered to the same realm to create a guild, or more accurately, a home. We keep a very friendly environment in and out of raids, oftenly joining discord to chat even if we aren't doing anything. Guild activities include but are not limited to mythic dungeons, mythic + and raiding.
      Our goals
      Our current progress is 4/7M and 3/3HC. Our current goal is to down mythic EN to gear up and also prepare for Nighthold!
      What we are looking for
      Recruitment currently closed for Mythic raiding with the exception of 1 Shadow Priest.
      People that want only heroics can join regardless of specs. Socials are still welcome!
      Our raiding schedule
      Our current raiding schedule is 3 raids a week for 3 hours:

      Wednesday 8pm to 11pm server time - NH Normal
      Sunday 8pm to 11pm server time - EN Mythic
      Tuesday 8pm to 11pm server time - EN Heroic / ToV Heroic
      The guild is using DKP system
      NOTE: We have added a catch up system for new recruits. When you get past the trial phase and join the ranks as a raider of our guild, you also earn 200 dkp as bonus and when you prove yourself that you are worthy of a core spot, you also get 300 dkp as bonus. We wont leave anyone behind no matter how new while at the same time, drawing a line for our core, active raiders that have been with us since the start.
