Designing a healing UI: general overview and healing styles
Welcome to the first of my guides on designing a healing UI!
This video is a general overview of making a good healing UI and a look at the various styles of healing and their pros and cons. To the right of the video you will find information and links to things mentioned within, such as a mouseover macro template and links to click-casting/mousebinding addons, as well as a list of the addons I use for my own UI.
Part 2 will look at the specifics of raid frames, including VuhDo, Grid 2, and Blizzard default.
Here is a template for a basic mouseover macro. Simply replace the spell name with the spell you want to cast.
