I know how to sort by downloads. popular is not always best.

I'm asking for expert opinions.
personally swear by vuhdo... all inclusive raid frames... descursive, debuffs, incoming heals, hots, dbm marks... really hits everything... customizable to include anything you'd want (mouseovers, hot keys, custom buffs/debuffs).

Its a little more memory intensive than a standard grid but less than if you use all of the grid addons... dunno works really well for me.

a looong time ago i used to heal with healbot. is that still any good?

thanks guys
i know people that use healbot, some that use grid with mouseovers.... hell ive even seen some pretty amazing old school grabbing names out of raid frame healing... its all possible if you learn it and get good at it.
I'll have to go with Nazo on this and second Vuhdo. I've been using it for... around 2 years now.
Healbot- player friendly and mostly set up for ready to go use, but a lot of set up required for personal set ups and such

Grid + clique- Best choice for me when I healed. Takes a bit of time to set up, but when it is it's pretty fantastic

Vuhdo- I hated it

Vuhdo for me as well...

If it doesn't have what you need, all you have to do is add it in (without having to go download it like with grid), if it has to much of what you need, all you have to do is take it away. None of the others have ever compared for me (healbot, Grid + clique, Grid + Mouseovers, whatever) and I've tried the main ones.
use da Vuhdo mon!

and power auras for cds/procs
Vuh'do or bust.
thanks for all the help <3
I <3 Vuhdo.

I use grid with keybinds I click on name and press button its not hard at all and I still do about 14-15k hps. Also looked at you character and am curious as to why you went haste.
I personally prefer grid+clique, but it's really personal preference.

You should also get decursive, power auras for CDs and procs, and totem timers.
I have never tried Vuh'do. I love my Grid+Clique and some mouseover macros. Some things need to be downloaded as separate extentions (e.g. GridManaBars), but overall it is easy to set up and works fine.
Grid + Clique \ Mouseover Macros.

Tried Vuh'do, it made me feel like Kip and that's never okay.

I also heal by clicking on someone in grid and pressing the heal key. Does that make me bad or just a sign that I've been play wow for way too long? :D
Stock UI and key binds for me. I have decursive but I dont really use it unless I'm dispelling 3+ people. I didn't like the way grid kept track of riptide. I'm sure there is a way to set it up better I just never got around to it. Same thing with xperl, xperl had a setting like "ultra sparkles" which was neat. I've heard good things about vuhdoo never tried it though.

I think it varies depending on how you like to play too; keybinds are just what I'm comfortable with if you like clicking you'd obviously want a different addon than me.
