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.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565
      To apply please visit our guild website: http://asylum-tn.enjin.com/recruitment
      __________________________________________________________________________

      Original
      Looking for a guild that is worthy of your time investment, and transfer fee? Then may we present - Original.

      Why should I join Original?
      Stability & Progress - Original has been going since 2005 in Classic WoW, consistent raiding content at the cutting edge, week-in and week-out. Over 10 years we've progressed through Classic, TBC, Wrath, Cataclysm, MoP, WoD and now Legion. 

      Unlike other Guilds we didn't cut our roster in Cataclysm and MoP - Clearing all Heroic content, leaving us going strong for Mythic Raiding for WoD and now Legion.

      What are you raid times?
      We raid on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. Invites start (Server time) at 1945. Raid starts at 2000 . Raids finish at 23.00.

      What classes are you looking for?
      Tank: Closed
      Melee Rogue/Monk/Warrior/Death Knight
      Ranged DPS: Open
      Healer: Open
      But, We will accept applications for all roles and specs, and each is judged on an individual basis..

      Do you do cross-realm tryouts?
      Any applicant must be able to come in and do a job on Mythic progression bosses. But first we will happily trial you in a heroic xrealm raid (Obviously only if you are alliance), gives us both a feel of each other. But for obvious reasons, Mythic raiding you will need to be on server.

      What is your progress?
      Currently sitting at 7/7 Mythic Nightmare - 3/3HC ToV - 10/10 HC NH - 3/10 Mythic NH
      Was 13/13 Mythic in HFC well before the pre-patch (enough to get most people mounts).

      How do I apply?
      If you've got any more questions talk to one of our officers via BattleNet

      yóni#2742 
      tipton#1663 
      blu#2850 
      luckyme#2674

      What about the social side of the guild?
      We've been around since release, Original has always been the most respected guild on Shadowsong. Known to be fair and friendly, whilst being competitive, our members are well respected in the community.

      A unique aspect of Original is the togetherness. We have an annual meet at our GM's house during the summer in sunny Surrey (UK) for up to a week, where all are welcome. Old, retired and new members all get together and have some fun. This shows how strong this guild is. People just never want to leave!

      We also have more social raids for friends, family, retired members and Alts. These take place on Tuesday, progressing though Heroic HFC with alts and friends.

      Anyway I can find out more
      You'll find a list of our streamers on the website www.original-guild.net

      And Warcraft logs, for an idea of the the performance we're expecting:
