    Best BG Healer?

    Hey all

    just wondering your opinions on best healers in bgs. I'm planning on doing rated bgs exclusively in cata and would like to know what healer you see in a bg that just makes you go omg yes we have that guy!

    I have a druid/paladin/shaman at 80 right now, could level a priest. So far I'm thinking Paladin for all the useful spells they have (like the hands) to help win rated bgs. What do you all think?

    Healing class ability at 80 vs. Healing class ability at 85 may be vastly different.

    this, not to mention things are still being balanced. also preference > someone elses idea of "best"

    edit: lol, ironically, my personal opinion/preference is priest. mana burn and life grip and arguably still the best dps. (ironic because priest is the only class you don't have)

    Which also answers the OP's question.

    I personally like shaman the best. Earth shield is great when you're stunned, instant wolf form to get away from those pesky rogues, your "oh-shit" macro is very powerful, heroism is great for arenas... I could go on and on.

    I have to say as a Frost DK I have no problem just demolishing Resto Shamans 1v1 and sometimes 1v2 if I can CC the DPS with HC without him/her trinketing.

    If youre trying to kill them, trees are the worst, followed by hpalas.

    If its a duel, discs are the worst.

    Blood DK is fun if you like healing. You just won't get to heal other people very much

    I have to ask, what "oh-shit" macro ?

    I would go with Resto Druid or Holy Paladin. I haven´t tried Resto at 80 yet but I´ve battled against some and yeah, they are insane.

    Holy Paladins - All you need is Holy Shock and Word of Glory tbh, if you get low, slip in a Flash of Light.

    Holy pallys never die in bg's unless theres more than like 5 people on them

    or 3 casters with blanket silence.

    Naming the most OP healer at the moment will not make the best BG healer in the future, it simply makes you the first to get nerfed.

    Paladins will be really good for BG healing in cata

    just 15 mins ago on an eos bg the alliance team had a resto druid.
    he did 3 milions healing.......
    6 ppl were nuking him

    i was( mage) using spellsteal counterspell ignite stun also one of the players on him was a prot warrior and we all know what cc they have

    the burst and substained dps on him was crazy but he didn't die .................. at a moment i was spellstealing his hots and i was able to survive 4 dps on me for like 1 min......

    he was just impossible to die even with bl we didn't take him under 30-40% i am fire mage with 1100 haste atm 44% crit and 3550 sp ( bg buffed) i can really do an insane amount of dmg when bl is up and he was just jumping around hotting him self up ignoring 6 ppl nuking him
    at the end of the bg i had 1.2 milions dmg and i can tell you that 500-600k was on that guy.

    if resto druids are like this at cataclysm we are going to see ranked bgs with 4-5 resto druids
    but i really hope they are more balanced at 85 or they will get nerfed hard

    but i am really wandering priest/mages/locks were nerfed on live and druids//warriors/ paladins got buffed why they are allowing resto druids to be so god mode.

    maybe the expansion is over now and pvp since ranked arena games are disabled doesn't mean much but we are some ppl that we like doing bgs even now and it is really unpleasant to fight against malfurion ( druid)
