    Default Choosing a Healer for Mythic+

    I have tried holy priest, disc priest, and holy paladin, and so far I am really loving the holy paladin. I have not tried a mistweaver monk, restro druid or shaman yet this expansion.

    Take a look at this list of only the mythic+ healers on raider.io
    https://raider.io/mythic-plus-charac...healer#content

    Look at all those restro druids. It seems like druid is the obvious go-to healer for high mythic+

    Has anyone multiboxed with one this season? Or even this expansion? I feel like I am missing out, time to level and gear up a restro druid.

    RSHM but yeah it sucked at launch. MW is supposed to be great for the mobility and RDRU is great for the brez and mobility and decent toolkit.

    Whatever reason I'm not enjoying holy or disc. I think the RSHM toolkit is just far superior. I haven't done anything with my MW yet though plan to later on.

    Seems as though the strat now is to either kite with all snares or tank with all tanks. The latter probably less effective now.

    I also notice the Blood DK is much less popular tank.

    So they could be choosing a healer just for the brez if the tank no longer has one.

    Current meta favors PROT after the spec changes. BDK got nerfed a bit on their durability. PROT is just far more mobile and a better toolkit if someone does the knockbacks on sanguine weeks.

    RDRU has been a thing since launch though. It's just probably better to have two brez when so many other benefits exist. Balance this expansion has been in a terrible place with most teams just going BDK / FRMAG / ROG / DH / X (RDRU or HPAL) variant.

    As usual come 8.3.5 or whatever the final patch is specs will be better balanced. Only to be turned upside down in 9.0 again. I'm honestly over it.

    So Resto Druid is great, but I just couldn't get a feel for it. The hots felt like they weren't ticking for enough and couldn't get the kind of rotation I wanted. Burst healing also felt weak.

    Resto Shaman is amazing for boxing, as chain heal is powerful and a smart heal.
    Mistweaver Monk is also amazing, they have great passive aoe heals and extremely strong single target heals. On top of that they give you 5% melee damage buff, which includes hunters.

    I have not tried Priest or Paladin this season but I did do Holy paladin at the end of legion briefly and it also didn't feel smooth then.

    I am not anywhere near mythics yet but I am levelling Prot Warrior tank, x3 BM Hunters and I really love Holy Priest.

    I'm finally 120 on 2 teams (4BDK + Pal) and (4VDH + Priest).

    I leveled with Disc for the priest, but with a 4 tank team, I switched to Holy for instances as the healing toolbox is much more effective for how I play. The Holy Paladin seemed really weak healing-wise but I haven't started with instances in that group yet. I will update as my experience grows.

    Primary team - 4 Blood DK, Disc Priest (110, ilvl 880-ish)

    Are there any Updates on this in 8.3?
    What are the Multiboxers preffered healers?
    Currently dont have a Good Overview of which healers are using ground target aoe spells which is unpreferably i guess

    i havent seen a healer trend for boxers at all, it's all over the map. People either feel more comfortable boxing their preferred healer in every comp, or pick the healer that best fits a comp based on movement and casting type.

    Ground aoe's can be simple by using [@player] if your healer is on follow, but i drive from my healer so it's never an issue for me. The classes using ground aoes are Druid, Shaman, and sometimes holy priest. They arent very impactful imo you could literally never cast them and be okay.

    Right now all healers are pretty good, so it's hard to make a bad choice. I'd say pick the on that fits your playstyle.

    If i had to sort them out in my best opinion, i'd go
    Melee team = paladin
    Casters = priest
    Mixed = druid

    Second purpleflavor on this one. It comes down to playstyle. I can't think of any that you can go wrong with except potentially Disc Priest since it requires a target to do healing and has windows to burst heal. If that doesn't work out though, the same class can just go Holy which is also great.

    Further thoughts on this, the strongest Healers if your playing solo are Resto Druid (they've been dominant now for a very long time) and Holy Paladins. I wish I could make either of these work. To maximize their potential they both have melee variants are part of their rotation which is not likely unless you're also doing a melee team.
    Now Resto druid itself doesn't need to do this they can get by with just casting but the dps does take a dip. I really need to spend the time and figure out a way to macro their healing rotation at a high level.
