I levelled my dr00d from 1 to 80 as resto (before dual specs were a twinkle in Blizz's eye) - my main char was created on EU launch day.I have regularly raided 40-mans, I have farmed 5-mans, I have taken large WoW holidays.I went from "select party member, cast heal", to some add-on I can't even remember, to xperl and macros, to grid+clique, then included decursive, then dropped the lot and started using Vuhdo (which is, BTW, awesome).I used Bigwigs, then DBM, had an affair with BossEncounters2 and am currently settled on DXE.I do all of this because I always want to make myself more useful, as a healer, for my raid party. I am not a purist, I am a pragmatist.I am regularly told my healing is excellent, though I'm always aware it could improve.I fully respect any healer who claims to heal LK perfectly well without any healing add-ons. I would be sceptical of any healer who claims to do all this without voice prompts over Vent/TC from guildies who DO have the add-ons.I will ALWAYS believe that, no matter how good a healer is, no matter how situationally aware they are, no matter how fast their reactions are - a healer without add-ons will make themselves an even better healer if they install and learn the correct add-ons.So why not install them, if not for some misguided sense of holier-than-thou purism?
