"If you display just the class color in background, you don't need to show the player's name. Names are extra information you don't need. "Not displaying names for your own personal tastes is one thing (each to their own)but stating it is something you do not need is quite another.Personally i feel showing player names especially in PVE healing is important. If you need to use a certain ability just for example battle ress on a person how are you going to find that person in 10 or 25 people with no names displayed ? especially when there is more than 1 of that class in the raid. I use class color backgrounds with my grid but I'd never in a million years step into a raid without names displayed as well. It may be an insignificant detail to some but to other healers including myself it's not. I for one don't want to be in a situation should it ever arise (it has for me) that I've been asked to switch to heal a certain person in the middle of a raid and have to say "eh sorry i can't find them as i don't know which raid frame is theirs" and before you know it the person is already dead when it could have been avoided.As i said each to their own if people don't want to use names that's their business but please when there are new healers reading these topics for tips.. state something like names on raid frames are not needed just because you think it is so.
