    Ohai everyone.

    So, from what I've read, got feedback on from mates in Beta and I've watched, I'd say we're looking at 5 healers. This probably goes down to 4 and then 3 for Mythic. By all means, at any point, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong or you have better information, this is what it's for!

    I think as long as we have a healthy spread of healers, we'll be okay. So a resto druid, a resto shaman, a holy pala, a holy priest and a mw monk. I did not include disc because lets face it, they're seriously under performing in terms of heals. In fact, Blizz themselves have announced disc is more of a "support" role than a straight up healer in Legion.

    A healthy spread of healers will not only provide varied cooldowns but also cover roles nicely. For example, in Legion, holy pala is a great ST healer but weak AOE. Conversely, resto shaman is great aoe but weak ST. Holy priest is good at both but not top tier at either. Resto druid needs a nerf because it performs amazing on both - you see where this is going.

    So yeah I just wanted to leave this out there while we're looking at recruitment - Let's make sure we get a balanced setup!

    My advice is, pick the class you find the most fun and not just the spec. In legion flexibility is going to be a thing and loving your class and that classes complete specs goes a long way.

    From my point of view after Beta:

    In doubt bring holy paladins ;) awesome spec this time around.
    shamans/druids/monks quite okay. Priest just be shadows its better this way =D

    Holy Paladin
    4 Resto Druids

    Not even joking, maybe take 1 resto shaman to soak gear because all hunters rerolled

    Yeah resto druids perform really well. I suspect they might be slightly adjusted. Still, I think we should have a varied healer team - definitely should have a druid, a holy priest, a pala and a shaman there.

    And aren`t Elementals like ripping the shit apart? oO Mung is pretty hyped =D

    on the other hand... i really don´t see designwise a point to burden a raid with a holypriest and if you want to stack its druids anyways..if you dont want to stack it kinda doesn`t matter anyways how you fill the non pala slots.

    Hpriest is behind Resto druid (as are all other healers), but still performing very well. We won't be stacking healers.

    There will also be a balance patch before Legion is out (like with every other expansion), so we'll have to see what we get from there. Which is why we want a varied healer team anyway.

    It is not about the values with Hpriests (they have always been a good meterspecc and a very theoryspecc), but in beta the design was annoying as hell to work with as other healers, because they depend so heavy on their midrange cds (which in addition feel wrong in wow anyways but thats another thing) so the others have to play around them without giving you an real edge. I personally (and most guys/gals i talked to) found it pretty annoying to play with this spec in a team not to speak of which psychotherapist you should consult if you actually enjoy that spec ( GET HELP!) :D
