Setting up your UI as a healer is extremely important. The main things you want to pay attention to:

  • Make sure your frames are close to your character/your weakauras. Reducing the time eyes need to travel between the UI and the character tends to alleviate some of the stress that being a melee-healer brings.
  • Make sure your frames are set up: This mainly means that you see all the important debuffs, stacks and their duration, as well as important buffs such as your HoTs. A lot of different raid frames have a lot of space for customisation, it’s extremely important that you take the time to set your raid frames up properly. Ideally, clutter is limited and you only see debuffs, buffs, etc, that you truly need. VuhDo or ElvUI frames or Grid 2 are the two frame addons I would recommend, with myself using the former.
  • Make sure you have all your abilities keybound, and you either use click-to-heal, or have mouseover macros for them. Clicking on spells and frames to target an ally is suboptimal and can lead to losing a lot of downtime and a lot of wasted GCDs.
  • Make sure to use Weakauras for your spec and also an addon for tracking other raid members' Raid CD’s usage. I personally use Method Raid Tools for this.

This is my current UI using only Blizzard UI settings no addons.


Renewing Mist mouseover macro

This is an example default mouseover macro, which you should do for all your beneficial spells (or click-to-heal).

#showtooltip Renewing Mist
/cast [@mouseover,exists] Renewing Mist

Mystic Touch Mouseover Macro

/cast [@mouseover,harm,nodead] Crackling Jade Lightning
/cast Crackling Jade Lightning

A macro which will allow you to debuff an enemy that is far.


A few basic WAs I would recommend are:
