I think encounters are totally designed around addons...why? Dispelling. Dispelling without a UI enhancement like Healbot or Grid is just horrible, and some debuffs need to be dispelled almost immediately after they're applied, in other words I'm pretty sure Blizzard is assuming healers are using some sort of addon in order to dispel or they'd give us a little more time to do so.Also...in before some guy responds to me saying he dispelled/dispells without any addons uphill both ways in the snow. I don't care.

I ALWAYS dispel uphill both ways in the snow WITHOUT addons. All of my raid dies, but...j/kI totally agree. There is no possible way I think I could do raid-level dispels without an addon of some sort (I use HealBot). So yeah, I think designs are made around addons, and I like that Blizzard does that. I like that they encourage people to mess with their UI, and I like that they're cool about people figuring out better ways to do stuff than they did. So kudos, Blizzard, for a job well done and the maturity to accept people who think they can do it better :)

Have you tried using the new built-in raid frames? They're surprisingly robust and display special icons on raid members with dispellable debuffs, among other options. Not nearly as customizable as most addons, but worlds better than what used to be built-in.
