Best Healer Class in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth
6) Holy Priest
With its release last week, you may be wondering what the best healer class in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is stacking up to be. And while there is no definitive best or worst in WoW, some classes are performing better than others in some key areas that will help to decide what is most viable currently.
Holy Priests are great sustained healers that provide strong AoE healing. On top of this, they feature some great abilities for single target and tank healing. Most of their stronger spells require standing still to cast which means they are a fairly immobile class.
Holy Priests are more than likely the least survivable class to play as. They are extremely squishy and offer little in the way of defenses. In their current state, they are likely to be downed by raid mechanics if even a single mistake is made. This puts them at a major disadvantage to every other healing class.
Burst Healing Score: 3.5/5
Sustained Healing Score: 4/5
Survivability Score: 1/5
Total Score: 8.5
