By the way, both Horde and Alliance bitch that 'our side has no heals!! [other faction] always has more healers! For those readers who aren't healers. It is hard to keep you alive if I'm stunned, silenced, or CC'd. Please help out a healer.

Only a small donation can help a healer stay alive to prepare fighters for the oncoming battles, so please donate to the NSPCH today.

Learn to heal in battlegrounds. There's no better place to get comfortable with your spells and your UI. Better yet, people are usually too busy to worry about or notice your mistakes and you don't have to worry about getting kicked because some tank wearing tissue paper armor thinks you can't heal.Most dungeons and certainly RF are a breeze to heal after coping with the chaos of battlegrounds. So if you do want to try healing, head for the bgs first ;-)

I would second the "learn to heal in battlegrounds" strategy. This is how I learned. I decided to level a new toon with the intent to heal. But leveling alone meant starting with a dps spec, then dual-speccing a healer with PvP gear as a way to learn that role for the first time. Learning in battlegrounds is much more forgiving. I found it took the pressure off of being the only healer in a 5-person dungeon. And it was easier to see the effects of different sequences of spells, a sort of experimental laboratory, that would have been harder to observe within the chaos of a 25-person raid.If you end up with a group that's not playing to the battleground objective, then create your own objective, as in, staying at one node to heal a defender, or pick a player or small team that seems to be staying together and follow them around. And you may also discover you like battlegrounds.

i second this what TonyMCS says. Healing in battlegrounds puts you under pressure that makes you learn fast, without the social humiliation that comes in dungeons if you fail. You master your clutch heals and hotkeys and class cds like nobody's business when healthbars are yoyoing around you and a rogue is beating on you.
