I want to Heal, but I've never healed before, aside from a few 5 mans way back in laste BC/Wrath.

I've decided I want to be either a Priest or a Shaman healer, how do the two compare?

Priest is roflmao easy mode healing. Resto Shamans are pretty cool, very position dependent.

If you play a priest, you get the bonus of having two healing specs to choose from. On the other hand, shamans are cooler in general, IMO.

Also Disc Priests. Atonement is a very cool thing.

Two questions.
When?
Source?

Honestly, I have more fun on my shaman. With all my utility spells, I feel a whole lot more useful than I do on my priest. I do a whole lot more for the raid than just heal.
I help manage adds with my AoE slow and AoE stun, I interrupt, I purge, I get 3 raid cooldowns, I can taunt things, I can mass dispel roots/slows and grant immunity to those effects for a few seconds, I can re-direct and absorb spells, I get Mana Tide Totem, and I heal.

I have done every single one of those things in raids, and in each situation, it was helpful when I did it.

Note: For the taunt, I sacrifice an unleash life for it, but if the situation calls for it, I'll do it. Beth'tilac is a good example of why I would want a taunt.
Note 2: I'm not saying priests can't do some of those things, just that those are all things I can do.
Note 3: I'm sure I forgot some utility I have as a shaman.

Doesn't look like much is changing in regards to healing.
