Aight, so I read the forums and what do I see. "Pallys are better than shammies" "shammies pwn pallys" Well, i am here to sort this out in my own way. The contestants will be judged in three areas of expertise: Healing, melee combat, and spellcasting (offensive).
Paladin: When paladins are healing specialized, they can out-heal most holy priests. Their combination of shield and heal works. The ability to rez at level 12 is also a good thing. When It comes to it, Paladins are good healers.
Shaman: When shamans try to heal, even if they are restoration specialized, they don't do overly well. A shaman could heal for a party of five in most instances, but there would be quite a few deaths. The ability to ressurect doesn't come until level 12 as well, so no difference there.
Paladin wins healing.
Tune in next time for the melee combat event
