I myself heal without any type of unit frame add-on's /raid frame add-on. But as a pally healer I just haven't had the need for it. I do use DBM and a beacon timer and ect.You would be surprised to know there are a few options that make default raid frames not bad.1. Range indicator. (under interface options)2. Hide the silly see through back ground.3. Show debuffs.4. You have many options on how you want to group you raid frames, by class, group or individual.5. Show target. (normally used on an individual, like a tank.)And yes I am a confident healer still, having killed the LK on 10 and 8/12 heroic modes.

The thing is, most of those features you mentioned were added because the addons had them first and Blizzard realized they were a good idea.

Yes, and it was implied that we're speaking of the feasability of addon-less healing with the game now, not in the past before such improvements came around. Remember addons should either1) Fill a hole2) Present an alternative style#2 will always apply, but the sooner that Blizz includes #1 so that everyone can use it, the better.

All of this has been available since the launch of wrath!The point is raid frames are doable pretty easily without add-ons, at least for some types of healers.
