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,.

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.

      Echo is a new project guild that wants to create a friendly and progressive environment.However,during progression our members are expected to have a great deal of knowledge regarding their class and have the obligation to research encounters on their own before the raid leader goes into detail about it. When we raid we're focused! While we are sociable and enjoy a good laugh, when it's time to raid, it's time to raid! We do NOT accept selfish, rude or intolerable behavior in our guild!. After joining you will be given the rank Trialist;trial period of 1-2 weeks,depending on performance and other things we may take into consideration.

      We are currently looking for:
      - Melee ( 3 Spots Open )
      - Range ( 1 Spot Open )
      - Healer ( 1 Spot Open )

      What to expect from the guild:
      - We are a social bunch, with members always talking on our guild discord.
      - We like to link our mythic+ keys in guild chat to find fast and reliable teams.
      - A mindset to raid hardest content,with a healthy attitude towards the cause and your fellow guildies

      What we expect from you:
      - Being humble enough to accept that you can always improve and accept criticism if it's meant well.
      - You have to be reliable – meaning attend most of the raids,especially during progress period

      Raiding times: (progression times may be extended)
      - Wednesday 20:00-23:00 ST
