Addon Spotlight: Raiding essentials for healers {WoW}

Oct 9th 2011 2:35PM Default raid frames + mouseover macros;
Grid + clique;
Vuhdo;
Healbot.

They all work fine. I know I'm leaving some out. These are just the ones I've played around with.
If you get comfortable with one, you won't want to change.
But if you do change, say because the one you used previously wasn't updated for your patch day raid, then you find something in the new one that you didn't use before. So you decide this new one is better. But by the following week, the one you left behind has the new feature you like. You just don't realize it.
Basically, you just need to be able to tell from your frames: your raid members' health, maybe their mana, what hots or shields are on them, if there are incoming heals, whether they are in your range, whether they are in a cluster, whether they are dead or disconnected, whether they have aggro, whether they have a debuff you can get rid of, and maybe whether you need to rebuff them.
I use vuhdo right now, but it's mainly because I find it easiest to relearn how to configure it after I have completely forgotten.

Patch 4.3 PTR: New druid Hurricane animation {WoW}

Oct 9th 2011 2:00PM I approve of the graphics. Now if only they would make Hurricane actually worth using again.

Breakfast Topic: In-Jokes {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2010 9:05AM So we were raiding Ulduar with a ten man group. We went through our first try at Kologarn and it was a very quick wipe. The raid leader asked if there was something we could do differently for our healers since the heals seemed kind of low. Then our discipline priest says with a mouthful, "Um I will heal this time. I wasn't healing." There is a long pause. The raid leader asks her why she wasn't healing and she says, "Well I was eating cheetos and I had all that orange stuff on my fingers and I didn't want to get it all over the keyboard. Another long pause followed by a few minutes of laughter. Before the next pull, the raid leader does a "cheeto check". And from then on, when a certain disc priest is raiding, you are likely to hear a cheeto check before we engage a boss.
