I play PvE disc when i heal, and have been using Healbot since BC. I was wondering if there were any other recommended healing addons that are similar? I've tried looking around, but nothing i have found really feels right.
I've never personally been a big fan of Healbot, but if it works for you, it works for you.
A combination of Grid and Clique is very similar, and Grid can be customized to show a lot more than Healbot, in my opinion.
Personally, I use Grid and mouseover macros for all of my targeted heals/buffs/spells bound to my action bars. It saves me any real clicking, and makes switching targets nice and quick.
(I'm a Pally, just for the record, but I have a passing familiarity with Priest healing (more so at 70, though))
As for other addons:
-Decursive can be helpful for any healing class.
-Omen is a must have
-Quartz (or some other castbar) is really, really nice.. helps you cast more effectively (because of how it shows latency) and just having a cast bar is handy :D Can also be set up to show an enemy's cast bar, handy for boss abilities that need a specific counter-action, or anything like that.
-There are addons out there (like PoM tracker) that will track your Prayer of Mending
-Some kind of cooldown tracker can be handy, or a combat text mod that will tell you when spells are ready, if you tend to forget those kinds of things. Most of these can also track other things, like the time remaining on your renews.
-A buff mod can help you keep track of your various procs and buffs (probably slightly more applicable if you're Disc)
-SmartRez is nice if you're healing in a raid, but it's just to save time :D
-Also, if you're in a Raid, something like BigWigs or DBM (used to prefer BigWigs, then DBM started updating for Ulduar quicker, so I swapped) can help you know about important debuffs, boss actions, phase transitions, etc.
Other than that, I can't think of anything else super important or specifically healing/priest centric.
