Welcome to our World of Warcraft Shadowlands Healer PvP Rankings updated for the latest Shadowlands Patch 9.1 and the latest PvP Season. We check this data very often and make sure that it is accurate and up to date. The Healer classes and specs on this page are ranked by their overall performance in competitive PvP - Arena (3v3, 2v2) and Rated Battlegrounds (RBG). The data is provided from the Official Blizzard API and constantly updated.

We use our in-house custom formula to calculate these rankings - its focus is on classes and specs who are most successful in high-rated PvP (eg. 2600+ for 3v3). Then we analyze how often does a certain class/spec occur at high ratings and those who achieve the highest ratings get bonus points.
