@ Pyro"There has to be some numerical way to see which class is performing better, otherwise why stack holy paladins?"I am not a hardcore raider, my progression is just 2/8 HC. But my understanding is that it really isn't about hps. Druids also do insane hps - but they get sat too.Druids and holy priests don't bring much utility. Paladins bring utility - i.e. raidwide defensive CDs (holy priests don't have one of those), and tank cooldowns (druids don't have one of those). Disc Priests bring barrier, but stacking disc priests is stupid because of of weakened soul.Hps or healing done is a somewhat useful metric, but it's much much less important for comparing healers than dps is for comparing dpsers. Most of the time the hardest bit of a fight for healers is handling the big damage spikes - throwing more healers or hps at a big damage spike is much less effective than using a single PW:B, or chaining Aura Masteries/Spirit Link Totems. Hps may now record absorbs but it doesn't measure damage prevented through CDs.
