Kologer0s is making me not like him, this is most upsetting
but seriously to state that palamuffins can't main heal is absurd, remember when Naxx was out and they were the best healers? well they got a slight nerf i believe (no more down-ranking healing spells
) but there still great healers.
I can imagine your the sort of person who also believes that druids are sucky healers too, if so please cut an onion and cry into your sleeve. Its really more about the player, not the class. Ofc priests get a slightly easier job in healing but they can't heal whilst Bouncing about in tree-form and casting hots on people (i've done this on bosses
) And they can't bubble up and heal people when they take aggro.
As for shamans, well i'll give you an update on that as my shammy isn't past 50, but she's main healed brilliantly and she's enhancment spec with as much healing gear as a toad.
Btw she's a dranei
Edit: I look forward to amant Quote-changing my post to 'tree's eat cherry pie too!!'
