About
This is a Status plugin for Grid, so Grid is required to use this addon. For pet support you must have Grid r58645 or later which can be found on wowace.com.

I've seen people request bringing in the Squishy feature where it highlights the person you should be healing based on a priority system. Maia & Pastamancer's stance seemed to be to have someone else write it as a seperate module, so I made the attempt. This is my first mod so be kind.

What it does
It keeps track of the first and second priority units and highlights them with colors so you know which unit could use your healing the most.

Instructions
  1. Download and install Grid
  2. Download GridStatusHealPriority
  3. Unzip the file into the Addons folder just like any other mod (do not install it in the Grid folder).
  4. When in game, right click the Grid icon and make sure the Heal Priority: 1st and Heal Priority: 2nd status modules are enabled.
  5. Then go to frames, then border, and enable Healer: First Priority and Healer: Second Priority and disable the other statuses.

Logic
Instead of only going by health percentages, the following statuses are used to weight the unit:
  • Is In Combat (focus heals on the warrior who is trying to get aggro rather then the warlock who hasn't engaged)
  • Is In Range (filter out people you can't heal due to range)
  • Is In Party (heal people in your own groups first)
  • Is Main Tank (prioritize if the unit is a oRA/CTRA main tank)
  • Is Focus Unit (prioritize if the unit is the player's focus unit - /focus)
  • Is Out Of Mana (lower priority on healing mana users as they get close to being out of mana)
  • Has Aggro (prioritize if they have aggro since they will probably be taking more damage soon)
  • Has Incoming Heal (lower priority if they already have an incoming heal from another healer)
  • Has PW Shield (lower priority if they have a power word shield on them)
  • Has WSG Flag (prioritize for flag carriers in wsg)
  • Has Nasty Debuff (if the unit has a certain debuff, it becomes a higher priority)
  • Has healing prevention debuff (don't prioritize)
  • Has high threat

Also, to avoid healers focusing their heals all on the same target, I took the class modifier idea from Squishy but modified it a little.

Priests focus on critical raid members:
  1. Warriors
  2. Druids, Priests, Mages
  3. (raid)

Paladins & Shaman focus on raid members who typically take a lot of damage:
  1. Priests
  2. Warriors, Paladins, Shamans, Rogues
  3. (raid)

Druids focus on raid members who have a lot of health:
  1. Paladins & Shaman
  2. Warriors, Druids, Warlocks & Hunters
  3. (raid)

Subgroup prioritizing:
If group 2 has 3 healers and no tanks or melee, and group 5 has no healers but 3 rogues, then group 5 units will have a higher priority then g2 units. Basically the more healers a group has, the lower the priority, and the more tanks & melee units a group has, the higher the priority.

Credits
All credit should go to Maia for the code I borrowed from Squishy and Pastamancer and Maia for providing all the tools in Grid to be able to write this plugin.
* Added fix for Banzai error.

Right now GSHPrority can not work unless the author makes major changes to Threat2.0 library that is embedded. If the author would modify the library usage to use Blizzard's than this will work once again. I have tinkered around with the code and have it working some what but nothing of a release candidate yet. When Blizzard made their own threat library they did not use object oriented library programming, instead they based it on many things. The crew who have developed Omen have somehow mastered this without sharing a lot of their secrets on how the new threat table is supposed to work.

This is a must have for any PVP or raid healing, just wondering if there will be an update?

I will fix this today. Grid recently switched to LibBanzai-2.0 on WowAce.com, and I rely on Grid's included libraries so I don't have to include them with my addon. The tricky thing will be that I might have to support both Banzai-1.1 AND LibBanzai-2.0 until Pastamancer updates Grid on WowInterface and Curse.

Ah, I must have missed that - thanks a lot!

I know this isn't quite on topic, but I was wondering what addon enables Grid to show the name of a damaged unit and its missing health at the same time as seen in your screenshot.

GridStatusHealer now has support for IncomingHealsLib (GridStatusIncomingHealth) and VisualHeal (both Ace2 and Ace3 version). This greatly improves the incoming heal detection.

I also added pet support in anticipation of Jerry's branch version of Grid with pet support being merged Pastamancer's official version.

I'll see.
Hopefully it works on my PC, since this li'l mod to Grid looks just like what I was looking for.
Thanks for the prompt response!

Hmm

I'm at work right now, but I believe when you right click grid, "Status" is an option. In there you should see the healer: first and second priority.

Then go to Frame indicators, and make sure the border is enabled for Healer: First, etc.

Hope it helps.

Call me illiterate or stupid, probably both, but I can't find the option to turn this great addon on.
"When in game, right click the Grid icon and make sure the Healer: First Priority & Healer: Second Priority status modules are enabled."
When I right click Grid, I just can't find this option, although GSH shows up in the list of installed addons.
Any ideas? A screenshot probably?
