Restoration Druid

Patch 7.2

Interface

To be able to play a healer well you need a good UI and especially good raid frames.

WeakAuras - An amazing addon mainly used to track cooldowns and procs.

BigWigs - Extremely useful for raiding to know when certain encounter abilities occur to plan your gameplay around.

Grid2 - I personally use grid2 but any configurable raid frame addon will do the job if you put in the time to customise it.

Important things to track are as follows:

  • Other raid cooldowns
  • External cooldowns
  • Absorbs/healing absorbs on raid frames
  • Personal defensives on raid frames
  • All relevant raid debuffs on raid frames
  • Cooldowns of other healers' dispels
  • Duration of your own spells/abilities on raid frames

Weakauras

I'm sorry to say that I don't have any weak aura's that I wish to publicly release at this time, however I've been told the Resto Druid Discord channel is a great place to get some neat weak aura strings so I would do a search for that!
