    Question Best healer for unrated BGs?

    You're a healer defending a flag in Arathi Basin, when suddenly a wild Rogue appears! There are no team mates nearby (and, this being unrated, they're unlikely to peel for you anyway), but you really want to defend this flag.

    What healer can best deal with this situation?

    Holy Pally, easily. Hpally is looking all around good for legion anyway. It's good in rated BGs, it's good in arenas, unrated bgs, etc. Either way, here's why I say holy pally:

    Holy pally has Devo aura (passive damage reduction), DP and a lot of really good honor talents to deal with that.

    For example, avenging crusader is an honor talent that makes holy Paladins do an insane amount of damage for 20 seconds and while you do that damage you also get healed for 200% of the amount of damage you deal. It's crazy. You can flip the situation your talking about around on the rogue with that. The CD on it is also 60 seconds which is really short considering it lasts for 20 seconds of that. It also reduces the CD of your damage abilities like judgement, CS, etc.

    Then we have hand of freedom. Frees us of snares, slows, etc. We can pair it with Divine Steed and get away if we need to. There's also an honor talent that increases your movement speed by 20% while it's active. We also have an artifact talent that reduces the CD of BoP and freedom, you can get it while leveling. That makes freedom even better for this situation.

    Overall we have plenty of tools to deal with the situation you presented. We can even turn it around and come out on top due to AC. You can check out Borngood on twitch if you wanna see this crazy damage/healing playstyle. He only does rated arena but you can see how well it works in there.

    Druids are not as great as they once were. Priest/shaman purging is a problem...and also when you heal the other team's mages (because they can steal a full row of hots every 15 seconds)--and there will be no shortage of mages. Also Genesis is gone, so burst healing is weaker.

    I was thinking Mercy might be the better aura, because you'll probably be doing a bit of Light of the Martyr healing.

    For the situation the Op described, devo aura would be better. If youre defending a flag and your team isnt with you and a rogue pops out it would be best to just have the passive damage reduction as the rogues poisons and such would just counter the healing mercy does in that situation.

    in random druid due to self reliance/mobility, and same concept with hpaly but instead of mobility you pop wings and smack around the rogue that ganking you and no one is supporting.
