Truth be told, I found healing to be unbearable on my paladin once I hit 80.Every few trash pulls I had to drink, even using divine plea on cooldown. And it just got worse on bosses. I couldn't even last half the fight before I had to mortal strike myself for mana. Stacking int gems for bigger plea ticks and a larger pool did nothing. I eventually gave up. And that was before illumination was nerfed from 60 to 30.My shaman on the other hand has been an absolute joy. Upon hitting 80 and doing some toc 5, I could easily reach 400 mp5 in combat. Chain heal makes healing through aoe dps bearable, and the buff to healing cast times and crit you get afterwards is a godsend. On top of that I can keep a decently geared tank topped off with earth shield and riptide alone for most 5 man runs, giving me plenty of time to focus on the group. Throw in cleansing totem so I dont have to waste a global for every poison and disease on the group, and Its an absolute joy to play.
