Even though I'm feral I read resto4life everyday. It is definately a must read for resto druids.

She's got some good info there, as well as links to a few other detailed articles.

I made the switch to Grid from Healbot a few weeks ago, and am very happy with it's HoT tracking abilities compared to Healbot's.

Yeah! Grid Rocks! I just need to figure out how to add custom debuffs.

i definitely recomend grid over healbot, but the addon clique is a must. The interface is simple. It is the best click to heal addon i have found, it can also be programmed for offensive as well. All in all lifeboomer, grid and clique are by far the best addons yet

I've pretty much phased out Clique. Not that I don't like it - I love it - but I've found it easier to have my heals on my actions bars as mouseover macros than to press one of 5 buttons on my mouse, +/- modifier keys. I guess if I didn't use my mouse to move it might be different.
But with the main action bar mapped to the key array on my N52 it's quicker for me to mouseover my target or it's unitframe and hit the appropriate key.

I don't like clique either, it gave me tendonitis in my mouse arm.

What I do instead is a mouseover macro like the previous poster. Basically I keep my right hand on the mouse, left hand on the keyboard, move my mouse over the person to heal (I don't need to click at all) and then press the heal key with my left hand.

Here's a sample macro that I use

#show Lifebloom
/script UIErrorsFrame:Hide()
/use Ribbon of Sacrifice
/use lower city prayerbook
/use Pendant of the Violet Eye
/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear(); UIErrorsFrame:Show()
/cast [target=mouseover,help] [] lifebloom

How this works is if there is a valid mouseover target it'll hit that target, otherwise the [] says to use the default rules for targetting (current target, or yourself).

i've only been playin for a few months, and haven't explored macros to much, but i'm going to give it a shot. any recomendations for starting out with macros?

There's a macro forum at the official site that has some stickies that are worth reading. WowWiki has a lot of macro info too.
