I'm using Auctionneer
and Guild Event Manager
I'm in dire need of an easy-to-use, yet insanely efficient Healing Addon. Any suggestions?
What are your favorites?

I don't necessarily use any special add on that helps healing. When healing using HOT's I have all of my heals set up in mouseover cast macros. Then I use Grid and map my macros to key strokes like 1=LifeBloom, 2 = Rejevenation, 3=Regrowth and I just watch the buttons and hover my mouse over the grid frames. I also use DOTimer for keeping track of when my HOTs will expire. I find its the best way to keep track of most importantly the tanks when I'm healing them so I can keep my rolling lifebloom going.

I've read that Clique (I think that is the name) is a good healing addon. I thought you needed Clique in order to use Grid, guess not.
I have no first hand experience with either product, but I keep an eye out as I assume I may have to become some sort of raid healer someday.

I love grid but do not use it in conjunction with Clique, though I have been tempted to try it out. I've been healing on my shaman mainly, so I wouldn't really be able to tell you how it goes for druid healing since my druid is still feral :)

Grid + hotkeys is what I use. =/
and a couple simple macros.

try healbots. its great for 5-man to raid healing.
it has a display showing all the members of your group (even raid size) and can be configured along a ton of lines. decurse, poison, range, health deficit, class, group, etc. and it is all run by clicking on the names, with each mouse button being a specific spell, for in-combat and/or out-of. and you can save the different setups for preferred use (i.e. battleground vs. raid). all of this means it can be a bit heavy on the setup side of things, but it comes pre-disposed toward whatever class you are playing so if you don't have time/desire you don't have to fiddle.
oh and it cooperates with other users, so you can see incoming heals and rezs from the other healers.

This one is pretty cool for binding a key for shapeshifting.

What's the best "Outfit Change" Add-on?
Itemrack and Outfitter are the two I'm looking at (unless someone has a better suggestion)
Now that I'm building like 6 different gear sets.....I'm getting sick of having to equip everything by clicking on it.

I prefer Wardrobe AL (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=4471).
That, Outfitter and Itemrack are the ones most people use. Just find out what fits you best.

Closet Gnome works as well.

I use Healbot (esp on my Holy priest) and ItemRack. Both work well once setup is customized. I'm not a computer expert, and it took me a little fiddling around to get them working the way I want them, but now I couldn't imagine playing without them. Healbot is especially useful if your guild's other healers have it downloaded- they don't even have to use it, just have it installed. It automatically shows if you will overheal based on current incoming heals, assuming your current cast lands for an average (non-crit) value, so you can just cancel a heal before it lands.
