Title: Best addons for Holy Priest?
Post by: JOBN on April 30, 2016, 05:36:22 am
I know there are a lot of good addons for priest but i don't want to use ALL of them and just have the game go nuts.  Can anyone give me maybe 5 good ones I should really use?  Also if you have any opinions on any general addons that aren't class specific that are good I would love to hear those as well. 

Thank you in advance for your tips and/or opinions.

I would just add that Grid is a raidframes addon, so usually it's up to personal preferences.
For raidframes, you can also use CT_Raidframes, Xperl Raidframes, Luna (a lot of healers like Luna) or easyRaidframes (not sure about the typo for this one).

Grid + Clique are usually used together, Clique allows to bind mouseover casting spells (so you don't actually have to click on the person you want to heal on raid frames).

Once again, try them out, it's down to personal preferences.

I would also recommend Bartender / Bongos to customize actions bars (as a healer you want to downrank some spells, so more spells needs to be added on the bars and the classic one might not be enough).

I would recommend sraidframes over grid

Downrank spells?  I assume you mean use the lower level versions to preserve mana?  I haven't raid healed in the better part of a decade so I am a bit rusty on terms
