Healing shortage? Yep. It exists. I'm in a guild of about 200-220 people, and while we're about on track for #'s of tanks & dps, the healers are definitely the sought-after commodity - especially for heroics/raids.

/signedWe've got a small, but talented, guild ready to run 10 mans....except we've got no healers.

I wanted to spec enhancement (shaman) to level, but every time I wanted to run an instance I couldn't get into a group (those darn DK's taking all the melee dps slots) unless I specc'd resto. So rather quickly I made it to the 50g per respec price and decided I'd just stay resto and level in instances the rest of the way. Heck I might be stuck resto-4-life now. hehe!

I will count our guild as lucky. We have 4 amazing healers (Paladin/2 druids/Priest) already at 80. We've got 3 tanks ready to go as well, and now we're just waiting on a few more dps to start taking down the 10 man raids.The key to keeping healers happy is to help them level. I will jump to help a resto-anything with a quest, no matter what I'm doing. We're lucky to have healers that love healing. Some of them so much that they don't even have an alt.

Same story with my guild about lack of healers -- 220 toons, at this point we have more DKs at 80 than healers at 80. I switched to a healer for wrath and actually like to PUG five mans, but since I dinged 80 (literally) 48 hours ago, I've spent about 9 hours in Naxx 10 and Naxx 25 with a side trip to Wintergrasp to do the raid boss there. I don't see any PUGging in my near future, just because in-guild demand for healers is so high for Naxx and heroics.
