Basically I have an arena partner that can go either Resto Druid or Resto Shaman.
Which healer would be better in 2’s with Survival? And then how about Affliction Lock?
We’ve run Affliction/RDruid, Affliction/RShaman, and Survival/RDruid.
Affliction/RDruid feels like a good comp, but we were having problems with survivability and it felt like any time he needed to kite away from melee, I was chasing him around pillars (it was hard to peel for him). His heals felt good at times, but at other times it felt like the throughput wasn’t there to keep my Lock alive vs heavy damage. Obviously we could get better but that’s the issues we were having.
Affliction/RSham felt “better”, it was easier to peel because he didn’t have to kite so much. But he was more prone to getting killed in the opener than on his Druid. Once matches went beyond the opener, it felt like we had a much easier time landing kills due to his damage, Wind Shear, Grounding, etc. But any time melee jumped on him, things got hectic (especially double melee) and it felt like I couldn’t keep them off. Is this a better comp than Affliction/Rdruid?
Survival/RDruid felt decent all around, it’s kind of hard to evaluate since my Hunter’s damage is nerfed (I have no tier pieces right now). But I was wondering which healer works better with Survival too.
