Every WoW Dragonflight Healer Ranked for Amirdrassil Patch 10.2

Which World of Warcraft Healing Classes should you bring to Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope? Here's every Dragonlight Healer Ranked!

Ranking World of Warcraft Healer Classes for Amirdrassil Raid Patch 10.2

  • There are 7 Healer Class Specs in World of Warcraft and all of them bring strengths and weaknesses to the new Amirdrassil Raid.
  • None of the Dragonflight Healing Classes are considered terrible, but their usefulness may change on a boss by boss basis in Amidrassil, the Dream’s Hope.
  • Some bosses may require specific Healers mechanics or abilities based on your raid composition, don’t be afraid to experiment.

Instead of a traditional tier list for the Dragonflight Healers in World of Warcraft, this list will outline some of the strengths of each class, as well as their potential shortcomings. This is because all of the healers are viable for Amirdrassil in some way, bringing different types of buffs and abilities to the fight.

Choose your healers based on how good your players are, how well they can communicate, lead or follow instructions and based on what you need to keep your raid alive in Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope.

Discipline Priest

Considered the top of the list by many sources, the Discipline Priest is easily the S-Tier of the seven healers in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. Except to see multiple Discipline Specs in some of the top guilds.

The main reason Discipline Priest is going to outperform other Healers is that they’re able to dish out consistent damage while also maintaining their healing duties. They also have amazing passive contributions to the raid's performance through abilities like Power Infusion combined with Twins of the Sun Priestess.

Hands down, Discipline Priests do strong healing and they back it up with strong damage.

Mistweaver Monk

Every healer has advantages and you’ll likely need multiple classes to pick up certain raid buffs. The Mistweaver Monk is a great choice for Mystic Touch inclusion since the other specs of Monk aren’t as strong in their respective classes as Mistweaver is as a healer.

Overall, Mistweaver has great heals per second and throughput and they can also dish out some good damage. A great inclusion in your raid roster for Amirdrassil.

Preservation Evoker

While Disc Priest may be considered the best because they dish out damage while healing their own raid, Preservation Evoker is the straight up GOAT for healing throughput. They can also do respectable damage as well.

Where they really bring extra utility to the raid group though is with Source of Magic. Mana concerns are big going into Amirdrassil’s raid. Having the Preservation Evoker doing their job while also keeping your other healers mana in the game is going to help keep everyone going longer-term.

Their one downside is that unlike Mistweavers Mystic Touch, or Paladin’s Auras, they don’t bring a raid-wide buff to the table.

Holy Paladin

Despite still being a solid choice as a Healer, Holy Paladin is outshined by a lot of the other classes already mentioned. The biggest reason to bring Holy Paladin’s is for the raid-wide buff in Devotion Aura, reducing all damage taken by 3% if you’re within 40 yards of the Paladin. This is further increased as a raid cooldown with Aura Mastery.

That being said, you don’t benefit from having more than one Paladin, so if you have a choice between a second Holy Paladin or something else, you’re likely choosing something else.

Holy Priest

If you have Priest in your raid, you’re much better off going Discipline since there’s no downsides to having multiple copies of it. Holy Priest is fine, but some major nerfs in 10.2 along with some buffs that Discipline Priests got, pushes Holy Priest out of the meta not because they’re weak, but because Discipline is just so much stronger.

The good news, you can easily swap back and forth between Holy and Discipline should any fights in Amidrassil call for Holy over Discipline due to something like needing extra Mana Regen from Symbol of Hope.

Restoration Shaman

In Dragonflight, Resto Shamans bring some good healing throughput to the raid, and they have the tools needed to fit into just about any situation but it requires the raid to be stacked up and depending on the boss fight this could be a huge detriment to your success.

Given this, there are some fights where Shamans really shine such as with Volcoross and Tindral Sageswift where it’s okay to be stacking up the raid.

Outside of raw healing, Restoration Shamans have a very interesting toolbox of cooldowns that make them powerful additions to your raid roster.

Restoration Druid

Druids are having a rough time during Patch 10.2 in World of Warcraft as both the Tank and Healing spec are on the bottom of their respective lists. That’s not to say that Resto Druids are terrible, but everyone else just does a much better job.

One of the great strengths of the Resto Druid is that they don't have the need to stand still so they can heal very well while on the move. But they also have very few options in terms of contributing damage to the raid. They have decent cooldowns and they also bring Mark of the Wild as a raid buff, but you could also get that from your local Balance Druid as well.
