Shammie is 2nd best healer after zealot in my opinion. Shaman can kite really well. Shammie has an AoE heal.

DoK has a hatred mechanic that means you need to pray all the time to be a pure class healer.

in my eyes - Shammie is best.
Why you all talking about AOE-Heal, burst and blablabla.
Thing is. A dead Healer does zero healing. If under pressure, shammie is capable of epic kite action. You get hit? You get fast! You get hit? Auto-Detaunt! Get hit again? Double-Detaunt! Wont get hit? Splatter the place and do an AoE-Slow.

Shammie is best cause he is independend. He can look after his own arse and that is a huge thing when it gets ugly. Why should you heal ... when you can outrun your enemies or slow them.

Think smart guys. Healin is more then pushing AoE-Grp-Heal. Thats just dumb. Same as Partymembers that willingly take dmg to get the kills. Move smart, as a grp, an Shammie is best you can get.

Group healing abilities are actually quite rare. All healers have a basic group direct heal (DoK/WP has a shorter cast but heals for less) and some form of out-of group multi-person healing (Shaman has the proc to heal random people nearby, Zealot has leaping alteration which is a HoT, DoK has a self-centered short range aoe heal. The DoK also has a dedicated group HoT.

As for action points, once you get restorative burst most of your action point issues go away when spamming group heals. Double pot helps you through the times that restorative burst doesn't keep up and high level gear has AP regen randomly put on it to help out too. Struggling with AP at low levels is quite normal but later on with the gear, pots, tactics and buffs from other players healers should rarely be out of AP.

As others have mentioned, Shamans bring a load of utility to the party as well. Almost all parties have 2 healers and one of those is a DoK, but the Shaman has a very strong position in 6-man parties and in city siege warbands as the second healer in organised groups.
