Last night I decided that I was going to go heal some of the newer Heroics on my Druid as I had not done so in a while. I was also only 150 VP from getting a shiny new helmet. Well, I ended up getting a nice belt upgrade as well. Woohoo. I transmogged the helmet to the T2 Bullwinkle Helm.
One thing I noticed was just how easy healing as my Druid is. It has long been my favorite healing class, but last night just confirmed it. I love putting HoTs on people rather than spamming big direct heals.
It was a friends first time through the first two new instances (still has not yet done the third one). He had basically not really played much for the better part of a year (if not longer), so he was rocking mostly 333 blue gear.
I bought him a bunch of PvP pieces to help get him into the instances. He got a decent number of other upgrades in those two instances as well.
The ease in which I was able to heal with my Druid made me wonder....why does healing as a Disc Priest seem to take up so much more mana? My sister suggested that is may be because Disc priests are more single target healers and having to spam heals on multiple targets with no real good AOE heals on a short cooldown uses a bunch of mana.
This got me thinking of trying Holy. I have never played Holy before. I dont think it would be terribly hard to learn. Just need to go online and look up healing rotations etc. Holy will replace the Shadow Spec that I have not used since around level 40ish.
Do you have a favorite Priest healing spec? What is it and why?
