Hello im an old school player,
raided through whole of vanilla as rogue (Naxx40 server 3rd raid-group, played pvp in a steady group with about 3 or 4 high warlords,
i only made it to rank 11 as highest (mount you know =P) my shaman friend thought it was way too easy to get to rank 11 ^^ so he teased me for it), raided BC, (raid-group broke up after Vashj and Kael'thas, we managed to kill first boss in bt).
after that i just played pvp, was gladiator season 1, 5v5, don't remember much else of bc, i never stepped foot in sunwell.
So Wrath came and with it DK:s so i abandoned my rogue at 70 (still at 70 now BTW) after having several hundreds of days played on him (i still remember when i hit 100 days, the raid group was progressing on that third boss in mc, god that was such a long time ago),
and i leveled a dk quickly i was dk number 3 or 4 on horde i was lvl 80 as quickly as my friends on their old characters.
My old raid-group was full so i joined a new one with old pvp friends, we cleared naxx easily and quickly, and then i suddenly burned out
(i was playing dk tank before blizz decided to make it ez mode with blood spec). So i stopped playing wow for awhile,
then i picked up my alt hunter (I've always loved hunters and played them from time to time
( in fact the only reason i didn't play a hunter instead of a rogue at start was my irl friend who i leveled with wanted to play hunter, so i chose rogue instead). So at the middle of wrath i talked all my irl friends into making a move to my brothers realm
( we we´re all playing on different servers on different sides) so we made us a guild and started playing together,
we played through trials raid and got ourself geared, then we all decided on quitting again, so i decided it was time i moved to another server and started playing in a guild called "the PUG" which i had read about on greedy goblin's blog (back when he played wow). So i got back in the raider mode, i was sitting my days playing my hunter and raiding whenever i could lich king raid, rest of the time i was making gold like always, and counting dps gain
by different rotations and gear upgrades i started playing over 12 hours a days and when i was at work i started by downloading rawr and optimizing everything i could, we killed the lich king and i lost interest in the game again. So i left the game and the next time
I talked my brother into making a refer a friend account and level 2 new characters through the new content,
so i made a lvl 1 Tauren warrior and my brother made a Orc shaman (he was rogue in vanilla also naxx40, but in bc he switched to draenai when they were released to alliance). So we got to 85 fairly quick i was mostly dungeon tanking after 58, and he went enhance.
So we joined Team Liquid, cause we have some friends there from starcraft 2. And after that long period of playing 1-85 almost straight and doing all dungeons to gear up (BTW 80-85 dungeons were awesome pre nerf), then we started getting pvp gear,
but as blizz fucked up the honor gain from the bridge bug, we both had full honor gear from a week.
So my brother who's a pure pvp:er by now, (gladiator with his shaman in 5v5 teams in bc several seasons) he got really bored at the game so he played some raids and quit, after he quit i also quit again.
So now for MoP I've got my brother really excited for the new expansion,
so we are probably going to play on his home server or some other place (man it would be so awesome if blizz opened a new server with no transfers).
So I've never played as a healer, ( i played rogue (for vanilla / Bc), Dk tank (for start of wrath), Hunter (for end of wrath),
Warrior Tank (for start of cata) so i really want to play this expansion as a healer (My brother has never played a tank class
(rogue and shaman) and for cata hes really excited for the changes to Druid so i think hes gonna play one,
So I've never really played a healer, oh ive played a druid resto in aq20 and dungeons, and I've played a priest to 80 dungeons healing,
and I've healed with my brothers shaman from time to time. But I've never played a healer in competitive play,
so for MoP i was excited for monk healing, but when I've looked at live stream and on all the info on monks I'm really not excited in them.
So I'm looking for a healing class for me, so far I've been thinking about shaman or priest
(i wont play paladin (4 of my irl friends only play palas so no no no).
I don't know if i´ll like shaman, my brothers been playing one for so many years too so i know shaman healing is quite nice,
but as it is right now i think I'm more inclined to play a priest, so what do you guys think whats the best option for me?
I want to play healer in heavy pve environment and maybe try it on some pvp (though i will most likely play hunter in pvp). So could you list to me what race / class combo you think is best for the classes ( we will most likely play alliance)
My brother and i will most likely use Scroll of resurrection
