Need help - which healer do I choose?

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.

      <Raw> - Area 52 (H) - 2day/week Mythic Progression Raid team. 
      TLDR;
      https://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/area-52/Raw (you'll find all of our recruitment needs here.)
      ________________________________________________________________________________________________________
      LEGION PROGRESSION:
      Emerald Nightmare -- 7/7H 5/7M
      Trial of Valor -- 3/3H (no mythic progression here, we were focused on EN at the time)
      Nighthold -- 10/10H 8/10M
      Small guild break (transferred from Thrall (H) to Stormage (A) )
      Tomb of Sargeras -- 9/9H 4/9M
      Antorus, the Burning Throne - 11/11H 10/11M
      BFA Pre-patch (transferred from Stormrage (A) to Area52 (H) )
      CURRENT PROGRESSION:
      Uldir -- 8/8H 2/8M
      ________________________________________________________________________________________________________
      RAID TIMES:
      Tuesdays: 8-11 Server (EST) Progression
      Thursday: 8-11 Server (EST) Progression
      Saturday: 7-9 Server (EST) Optional Farm (Normal/Heroic)
      RECRUITMENT MISSION STATEMENT:
      We are currently looking for people that can commit to all raid days. We are interested in players that will show up prepared, focused, and ready to kill bosses. 
      We understand that real life happens, but we do ask that our raiders maintain at least 90% attendance and be able to raid without frequent interruption. 
      We don't have a strict attendance policy, however it is important for us to keep our progression as strong as possible, which relies heavily on raid wide attendance. We only raid two days a week for 6 hours total, so it's imperative that we are all prompt and focused for raid. 
      RECRUITMENT NEEDS:
      At the current moment we are seeking any spec Warlock, Mage, Hunter, and a WW Monk. As always, we will are interested in ANY competitive/mythic oriented raiders despite spec/role. We're happy to talk to anyone interested.  
      Prefer:
      Ranged -- MM/BM Hunter / Mage / Warlock!
      Melee -- Arms War / Surv Hunter / WW Monk
      MYTHIC+:
      For our 20m roster we have four 5m mythic+ teams that do one max level key a week. These teams are made up randomly and will be mixed up every two weeks. This system allows for us to make sure that our raiders are staying up to date with gear/Azerite,  and it also helps build chemistry within the core. These are 100% MANDATORY and will be conducted after raid on raid days. Same attendance requirements as raid days. 
      EXPECTATIONS:
      We expect all raiders to come to raids prepared. This means: 
      - Having the correct gems and enchants. 
      - Class knowledge.
      - Raid preparation. 

      We only raid 6 hours a week, so it is important to us that we don't waste time. All underpreforming players, regardless of rank or class, will be benched until performance can be brought up to par for the current content.  We are not interested in carrying anyone, and if you cannot perform raid mechanics, then we are not the guild for you. Flask and food is something that the guild will eventually be supplying. With prices and demand here on A52, it's been tough getting those donations.  We do try our best to take care of our guild members when it comes to raid mats, this is primarily done through donations. One team one dream.. we all have to donate a little to help the team as a whole. Our guild is a small community and we all pitch in to get things done.
      LOOT SYSTEM:
      Not a lot to this really. Personal loot is Personal loot. At this current time we have no structured system for non-upgrades. You're welcome to pass loot, but we will not concern ourselves with it. Our focus is killing bosses.. everyone will end up getting everything they want... eventually 😛
      PRIMARY CONTACT:
      Raid Leader - Fwansis (CrispyD#1823)
      Officer - Fruitcake (Fruit#11335)
      GM - Beanboss (funny story 😛 )
      Recruitment Officer - Mönty (moooooonty#1899)
      Anyone listed can answer any further questions you may have pertaining to the guild as well as conduct your interview in our guild discord.

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 5/8H
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING (340+ ilvl)
      Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Healer & DPS for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and fill out our app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!
