1.) I play a 70 shadow priest, and NO, shadow priests cannot main heal Level 70 content or raids. We do fine as a main heal with the proper gear up until then, but after, we don't have enough +heal or mana efficiency to keep up.Hard/Easy is a relative term. I play a Ret Pally. Well geared, he's not bad as a DPS or tank. (lvl 35). My Shamman (lvl 59), in the best gear I can buy/quest for can't handle multiple mobs as well as my S-Priest did, nor can he solo mobs 4+ levels higher than he is as easily. Shaman don't solo as well as other classes solo. You can tell me to L2Play as much as you want, but it won't change that fact. And as a 'hybrid' they aren't as desired in 5 man instances, so they don't get to group as much early. I'm spec'd Enhancement (0/41/8), and I do reasonable DPS, but I don't DPS as well as a Rogue or Lock. I don't have damage mitigation like a Priest or a Pally. I don't have crowd control like a mage or a hunter.I DO have a bunch of very cool, powerful group buffs, on proc group buffs, and nice on proc buffs of my own. But as they are 'group' buffs, they are toned down over 'self' buffs. Shaman are built for grouping, not solo. They are viable, just harder to play solo than other classes.
