    Do you heal with or without addons :)

    Hi ! i have a question for all healer here
    do you heal with or without addon, and by healing, i dont talk about decursive addon, simple healing (exp: healbot/grid)

    im just curious to see the statistic here !

    i was healing with healbot since wotlk, but since pandaria, ive decided to try to healing without it and it felt great !!
    So since the end of cata i dont use any addon to heal ( only wow raid frame )

    What about you ?

    I raid hard modes and I raid with a minimal amount of addons. I don't understand how some people can clutter their screen, I think it distracts from the task at hand which is watching out for mechanic and topping off green bars.

    I actually use standard blizzard raid frames + clique for most of my healing.

    I use standard blizzard frames and nothing more. I heal, dispel, and use cooldowns by clicking on frames and using keybinds.

    Running worse than losing.

    Oh and I also use mouseover macros. I don't know how any decent or good healer can heal without them.

    Have only healed in pvp and heroics in wotlk, but I have always used the standard blizzard frames as UI.

    I use grid and mouse over macros.

    I could use the standard Blizzard raid frames, now that they've been improved, but old habits die hard (like John McLane.)

    Grid + mouseover macros. I could use blizz frames as well, but I currently use elvui, and the way grid is configured in elvui is very clean and nice, and I like it.
    Got questions about Fire mages or want your logs analyzed? Feel free to PM me.

    I used to use Healbot way back in Karazhan. Then later on, I used Grin and Clique.

    Now I use Blizzard raid frames and Clique for mouse and mouse/keybinds

    Nope.

    I use the default UI and that is it...

    No Vudho, Healbot etc and so on...funny too see how healers CRUMBLE without it "I CANT HEAL WITHOUT MY HEALBOT MAN"

    So when patch day comes, It is like nothing changed for me.

    Haven't played since early Cata but healing without healbot and grid was just useless hassle that could be avoided. On the other hand it was nice to see people fail hard and whine when addons were borked for a day or two after some patches.

    Vuhdo. I can't heal without it! Well, I can, but it's not as good, I think.

    Healium is the only healer and actually only UI add on Ive ever used.

    SuF and that's it.
    It's like crossing an intersection. There's shit going on all over the place and you don't panic and act like an idiot then do you?

    you said that you cant see any decent healer would be doing without it, i, personally dont use it, and my number are pretty neat but i dont want to prove myself here, but i had some pretty good comment in raid about my healing numbers (always top in healing done and the lowest in overhealing)

    Same here.

    I use the normal BlizzUI (all of it) with Atlasloot, Recount and some minor addons that do nothing towards raiding (NPCtracker etc).
    I just click and heal, click next target while casting on the first, and prepare the next cast. I tried playing with Healbot and it was terrible.

    Also, unless changed, Grid was basically a raid frame, like the standard Blizzard frames are right now, but easier on the eyes than the old standard one.

    I find vuhdo way easier to use than managing a bunch of mouseovers. The flexibility is very nice. The way you can handle debuffs is also very nice. I would switch to blizz frames if they had more buff/debuff options.
