I heal on my shaman without any add-ons and am quite sure I can heal any content with competent raid partners (they may need add-ons to be "competent")...I also have no macro'd keybindings...It's either this, or have add-ons and then bitch that the game has gotten too easy...

Healing addons don't make the game easier. They give you the tools to be better. While I think healing without addons is an excellent way to learn to be a proficient healer, if you actually take the time to set up macros and UI improvements correctly, you will eventually find your own performance improving.And believe me, it doesn't make the game much easier. It just lets you focus on the real difficulty of the fight (the boss encounter) rather than the artificial difficulty (the interface design).

Honestly, I'm not against add-ons. Besides my jab at the small number of "elitists" who bitch about how the easy the game is but then will call you out if you don't use DBM during raids, most add-ons seem to me more like a Quality of Life thing.Personally, my shaman was my first character and I am so used to fast-twitch clicking while watching green bars go down, it would take months and lots of deaths (of my friends) to learn a new system. I'm terrified of change.But, I also hold firm that add-ons are not necessary to be better than good.
