I have a level 70 rdruid and level 85 rshaman to choose from, dont care about healing as priest again even if its buffed because its just too gutted/boring.

Which healer has the best chance of being imba for the expansion, rdruids seem really strong right now so im leaning toward it but rshaman seems much easier to pick up and play from dpriest as its very similar healing mechanics

Shaman is still the strongest healer in most comps.

I am in the same spot, I have one recommendation. Do not go for classes with weak healing.
You'll see that resto shaman heals are just huge, holy pala instants are close with the new %30 battle fatigue resto druids will have hard time .
Considering mages got hit pretty hard, there will be a lot of melee cleaves and only thing going for resto druid is displacer beast and it's likely to get nerfed.
So the real choice is between resto shaman and holy pala, I am more inclined to pick holy paladin because they can deal with melee easily and they are just too easy to play.

Because Shamans are hard to play right? If you have a 85 Shaman the choice is easy. Shaman. They are still the best healers, and can run really strong setups.

All holy pala does is heal one guy and occasionally cc(which they got this expansion), on top of what paladins do, a  shaman has to be watching all enemy players if they gain a buff he needs to purge, all enemy casts in case he needs to ground or shock.
That said, the game is inherently easy and shaman is obviously better than pala(not by miles), but holy pala is the most brainless healer and always has been, it requires the least arena awareness because of the limited tools and design.
On topic, with the increasing amount of melee cleaves in the ladder, I feel holy pala will end up in a better spot.
