PvE Healing Interface help for Corruption Sorcerer

Hello all! This is going to be fairly open to interpretation, but I was wondering if there were any Sorc healers with kick-*** healing interfaces set up that they wouldn't mind showing me? Just screenshots are fine.

I've been looking around and I'm having a hard time finding one that's easy to use straight away, and allows for logical switching to a solo play-style when I'm not grouped. Obviously I'd want my numbered keybindings as healing skills for group content, but often I don't need to heal as much if I'm by myself, so in that case I'd want DPS skills in place of those.

To make you aware of the gravity of the situation, I've been playing like this since launch: https://gyazo.com/36a5925a919183be1b2555e5e5da8f2a

Generally I can keep up with most healers, but it's a lot of clicking indeed.

I'm thinking that maybe a 5-bar-visible interface with the option of the main bar switching to a secondary DPS-oriented skillgroup might be best, but I'd like to hear what works best for other people first. Bearing in mind I have a standard keyboard, with 3-4 spare buttons to bind on my mouse.

I thought this looked okay, but it's set up for Merc healing: https://www.swtorui.com/downloads/in...interface.html

Also, if there's another thread on this exact topic for Game Update 5.10...feel free to direct me to that, haha

Thanks in advance!

If I remember tomorrow Iíll give you some screen shots of my interfaces and some of the other healers I know.
But for now just some advice... pretty much you just want to make clicking raid frames easier on yourself, along with monitoring then. So what Iíve found a lot of healers use is have the raid frame st the bottom with the quick bars building around it.

Yeah that's definitely the sort of thing I want to be taking into consideration. Much appreciated! Anything for comfortable and consistent rotations, haha.

On a side note - I imagine those healers would have a lot more of their keyboard buttons bound to skills as well? I've even seen people sacrificing their WASD+QE movement in favour of faster key-presses...I don't really want to go quite that far though, haha. I could rebind R, T, F, G though or something similar.

Woah, that's a cool one! Very clean. I can see what Maxitrac was saying about stacking skills around the raid frame. Good stuff.

I was playing around with Vulkk's layouts yesterday and I "think" they might work across most of my characters https://vulkk.com/2016/12/12/vulkk-s...binding-guide/

It'll require a bit of training, haha. And I'll have to figure out how to lay out my Sorc skills in place of his Operative ones on his healing layout. Still doesn't accommodate DPS skills very well when I need them, but maybe I can figure something out there.

Maybe something like this can work for you.
This isnīt a Sorc interface, but something with central Raidfraime.^^

Anything which maximizes your field of view is a good thing as a healer. My 4 man group frames go right above my main toolbar and the raid frame goes on the left middle of the screen.

I don't care who you are. I don't care if you are male, or female, black, or white, gay, or straight, religious, or non-religious, old or young. I care about 3 things. Can you tank properly? Can you DPS properly? Can you heal properly?
