Hating your co-healers

90 Undead Monk
Well...let me say. Healbot the addon is good, players that have their eyes glued to it are not. Healing addons are great and fast but at times they take away from a healers awareness and their utility value.

I helped develop Castparty (on a input level) and have used healing addons ever since. Eventually I realized that I was like an aircraft controller watching so many icons, bars and timers that I had no idea what was actually going on in the fight.

The only way I cured myself of this was to play a mele class as it forced me to use keybinds and pay attention to what was going on (i.e. standing in the fire). These days I am back to healing and I am way more aware of what is going on during the fight while still able to use healing addons.

Hope this helps give you some insight on your co-healer.
