Healbot allows you to keep the mob targeted while healing anybody in the raid. If you're going to use an add-on anyway, why not skip the whole /focus business?

This is my preferred solution as well. I can easily purge immediately and never skip a beat while healing. Similarly, on Faction Champs, I can focus the shadow priest to interrupt, and constantly be purging the raid's main dps target, all while healing as fast as I can on the people with aggro. All you have to do is install Healbot and you have all the functionality you need. I always hear people whining about how difficult it is to set up certain plugins on Grid to get all the functionality that they need in a good way. I can get Healbot running on a new healer in a matter of like 2 minutes and have all that same functionality. In fact, I would argue that functionality is better still. I don't get why it's not way more popular than it is.

I don't use healbot, but clique and grid, but they allow me the same freedom. But I still us focus on the tank. Tied in with Power Auras, I can have icons up for BoL, S. Shield, and the Flash of Light Hot, all with timers on each showing when they are gonna fall off. Not to mention I can macro my Judgments to hit the focus target, so I never have to target a mob, and in a pack, JoL is up on the Tank's Target, which, if the DPS is using focus on the tank, then can /assist focus and all will be win.Along with all that, I now have 3 places on the screen showing my tanks health, I'm usually focused on grid, but I have the focus frame in one area, and the party frames up too, so its just bonus visual aid.And yes, I can still see even with all that stuff up on my screen!

I use Healbot too and this is exactly what I was thinking. I also use Decursive for all my party dispels. Yes, I know Healbot can do it, but I prefer to have it in Decursive so that I don't accidentally miss a dispel in the confusion of Healbot.On Jaraxxus, I generally just keep him targeted and then heal whoever needs healing. Of course, we also generally have a mage who just spellsteals Nether Power instead of me needing to dispel it.
