I've been healing for all of two weeks, but what is Healbot doing for you if you're not using Click-to-Heal? I thought that's what Healbot was: a way to click (and right-click, and shift-click, etc.) to heal. You make it sound like a small feature. Am I missing something?

Healbot (I assume - I use Grid) also shows various debuffs that the healer may need to clean off party members. It also shows current health status AND incoming heals, so you can avoid having 3 people throw huge heals on someone only to have 2 of 'em get wasted.I also have mine set to show who has aggro, and some people have it set to show who doesn't have whatever buff they are responsable for keeping up.So it does all sorts of fancy stuff OTHER then click cast (in fact Grid doesn't do click cast, it makes a great click cast target, but it doesn't do click cast itself).

You aren't required to use healbot that way though. You can also configure it to target on click, then use keybinds for spells. I use a mix of both, click on some spells that are instant cast, while the other spells that have cast time I have keybound. There are advantages and disadvantages to doing this of course, so it's more a matter of play style. I really like healbot even when I'm not playing a healer. It's very compact and gives you a good idea of incoming heals, debuffs, who has agro and other things which are happening in the group.
