VisualHeal is a small and simple but powerful tool for all classes that visually shows your heals to others and heals incoming to you from others by means of two information-packed, yet intuitive bars:

The PlayerBar

Whenever anyone is healing you a bar will appear, showing you your own health, how much healing will be done by this particular heal, who is healing you and when it will complete. If several people are healing you, the heals will be sorted and stacked on a third bar at the end of the first two. The information about the next incoming heal will be displayed, and the part of the bar representing the next heal will gradually change color to green indicating the time left before the heal completes. This makes is easy to determine whether or not anyone is healing you, or you should drink a potion or use bandages (or heal yourself if you are a healer).

The HealBar

Whenever you cast a healing spell a bar will appear, which shows the health of the target, the incoming heal from others that will land before yours as well as the healing you are about to cast. This makes it extremely easy and fast to determine whether or not the heal is going to overheal.

VisualHeal significantly helps cooperation in large groups by showing exactly what is going on in a compact and easy to read format that makes it possible to react to the information before it is too late. It is also useful when not in a group, because it visually shows the size of the healing your are casting in relation to the health of your healing target, and instantly makes it clear whether or not the size of the heal is adequate.

How to move the bars from default position

Type '/vh show' to show the bars and drag them around to the desired position.

Technical Stuff

VisualHeal contains an embedded cooperative heal module (LibHealComm-3.0) that silently communicates in the background whenever someone is healing. This makes it possible for VisualHeal to know exactly who is healing who and the amount of healing incoming for the next few seconds to the individual targets of the group. Ideally all healers in the group should have VisualHeal installed. VisualHeal will continue to function even if some healers don't have it, but it will not be aware of healing cast by these players. It is possible to disable both the PlayerBar and the HealBar, leaving only the cooperative heal module silently sending messages in the background to other clients. To disable the PlayerBar and HealBar, type '/vh playerbar disable' and '/vh healbar disable' respectively.
