Jun 20th 2010 9:06AM Holy pally, learned to heal without addons. I wasn't bad and Kara wasn't that hard. Tried many addons for healing and settled on Healbot. I works well and gives lots of info which is really why I like addons for healing. They provide additional info that helps you make the healing priority decisions that keep the raid alive. Now I have a healer of every healing class and have Healbot customized for each.
Can I heal without it? Yes. Am I quicker with it? Definitely.
Jun 20th 2010 8:36AM I started playing in July before BC came out. I hit 60 on my warrior and he was my main until I leveled my hunter. When wrath came out I hit 80 on my warrior first, then my pally who has raided a bit, then my shaman who is my current main.
Problem is, when there is so much time between expansions it gives you a chance to try everything. I have 9 80s, no warlock yet, and since there is time I have started over on a horde server just to keep playing. I should have 2 or 3 80s there before cataclysm.
Who knows what my next main will be, maybe worgen warlock?
