    Surviablity Paladin>Druid>Shaman>Monk>Priest

    This is based off me doing random Rbgs.

    Shamans and paladins are the best for their respective comps. Druids work well with one comp, and disc is garbage.

    This, but I would add that while monks are as garbage as disc right now - in 5.2 Monks might end up being competitive with the top healers (hpal, rsham, rdruid). Holy priest, as always - is apparently not allowed to ever be viable in pvp.

    You're a priest, what do you expect?

    Loving my druid. I pretty much only die when I AFK for a minute or so. The other night I had my HoT's rolling on me with my Bark on.. I went to the door, let my guest in, grabbed my pizza, went to shower, walked the dog and loved my wife.. I came back & I was dead but I imagine that it took them awhile.

    Yes. Resto Druids are awesome when left alone and not attacked at all. Those hots will do wonders with no incoming damage.

    Sometimes I feel this forum would really benefit from a "Like" button next to the posts. This is one of those times.

    Monks are not that bad, I usually see people either asking for a either a druid or monk heals after they have a shaman and paladin. But on my monk I usually end up outhealing everyone else. The bad monks are really bad but if you got a good monk, they can do some work. But I think most people are seeing bad monks so...

    Your talking about RBGs though, I was thinking (and I think the implication of the thread was) about Arenas. Monks are great healers, 5.2 is going to help them a lot be even better, but in arenas currently - monks dont have as much utility or survivability as the top three. I play with a mistweaver on my 3's though and she's badass, high hopes for 5.2.

    Well the OP never asked specifically either for arena or rbgs. The only thing he mentions is being a former glad. Monk cc is still looking to be bad in 5.2, the problem is dots/aoe which with one hit kills our cc. A piece of advise for other monks, frostdk/mw is not a good combo. Though we are looking to be much better in rbgs.

    The fact you put Resto druid in the same league as disc priest, completely annihilated your credibility.
