Which is better?

2 posts in this topic

So I'm coming back to play this game and the last time I played was Cataclysm, I use to main a Tank DK and a Hunter.

 

I've made my decision on maining a healer and off speccing to be a ranged DPS and narrowed it down to Shaman and Druid, the question is, how do these classes rank in terms of healing and ranged DPS. I plan to be a healer for dungeons / raids and use ranged DPS for leveling.

 

Which class would you recommend to someone who is going to be new to healing?

Which class has the highest healing potential / which is higher ranked in terms of healing?

Which class can output the most ranged DPS?

Since you want Healer + Range DPS offspec, there are 3 classes that fit the profile: Shaman, Druid and Priest.

 

Shaman would be the best choice.

While leveling, they out-dps most classes in AoE except Hunters AND they have a self heal.

Healing is fairly simple as with Priest and Druid, and can be a huge asset to any raid due to their totems/BL/Auras

They can do the most dps out of the 3, and are pretty high among the other classes.

      restoration druid nerfs 8.1

      I saw on Wowhead that Restro druids are receiving a nerf to  Tranquility : Heals all allies within 40 yards for [(41%37% of Spell power) * 5] over 8 sec. Each heal heals the target for another 16 over 8 sec, stacking.
      Healing increased by 100% when not in a raid.

      I feel like its not necssary and are going to effect my healing in a bad way duh. (Nerfs normally do.) But as it is right now im far behind Mistweaver munks and every priest spec. 
      My Tranquility is my second higest if not the higest healing abillity i have (Thats what Details Tells me.) 

      And im unsure how the Autumn leaves changes is gonna effect me, wheter or not its for the better or worse.

      What do you guys think?

      This is my first post please no roast 👶
      friendly

      <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.
