Just interested how you priests cope with healing now that emergency monitor doesn't work anymore (as in can't target people there). I find it hard to follow 40 (soon 25) people at the same time.

PvP raid healing is downright impossible for me with bigger raid groups. Even WSG CTRA bars are damn annoying since it changes everytime enter WSG (I know about making my own ptargets but thats very cumbersome to setup). There's always several second delay when try to find the person going low health in emergency monitor and find the right name in the CTRA bars.

Main problem with bigger raids is all the bars filling up my screen and can't see shit. (Mind you I have 19" monitor but for practical reasons have to play WoW in 1024x768 resolution). Already have to enlarge the bars alot...

What addons are you all priests using now for healing? There must be something much more practical than CTRA (+ctmod).

I really dislike this making me watch whack'a'mole all raid and not having time for anything else to enjoy the boss fights. Already took too much time concentrating on healing (and dispelling) with the previous addons (emergency monitor + /racure).

I'm using grid (http://www.wowace.com/files/) + clique (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info5108-Clique.html)

though it is pretty whack-a-mole (the author of grid has offered to make a plugin for grid to have actual moles popping up if someone can do the artwork for it)

if you lack screen space, try using grid. it also has a range check feature, which greys out the people that are at >30yds range.
