Besides the obvious of prayer max and holy bolt, what would be some good off-talents to spec into?

I was thinking along the lines of cleanse but little in meditation (get that from runeword) and maybe being able to carry down to be able to do decent FoH damage?

Just looking for some input and general suggestions, or whether or not having a healadin is even necessary and if a merc could take his place.

smite 20, holy shield 20. You can tank bosses with double healing auras. But I've made my tank to 65lvl before I quit D2. He was a very nice addition to norm baal keeping everyone alive not using holy bolt ever once.

foh for clearing undead areas, farming frozen citadel to sammy is a breeze with a nice foh and the item drops are good there

Very nice so far, will definitely pick up Holy Shield and double up as a tank and see if I can maybe get into FoH. I'll be running with friends almost all of the time though so I'm not worried about solo clearing anything.

My main priority is being support for party, so I'll probably stick with the tank route.

yeh if you are party focused you won't need to go the FoH route. It's mostly for solo farming

the tank role becomes harder to play since you simply cant regen for as much as you can heal with hb. as you go through nm you will have to sacrifice + skill gear (+prayer) for dr/life/res/sorbs/dex if you expect to tank through nm/hell.
with the removal of 1h cb id say its not worth it to smite with a healer when you can dress up in full caster gear and serve the party better than a weak wall can.
im actually going to be rebuilding my healer in the near future cause of broken salvation synergies. wasted pts ftl. this time ill be going conviction maxed then not sure. maybe 10 res fire/light and bank pts incase res cold fix comes in new patch or go max thorns for ez farm vs phys bosses. whatever route you go id put some pts in HS and try to maintain max block

sacrifice and fanatacism aren't skills this patch, conviction on a healer is very good though.

Thorns is interesting, it can be crazy in some situations

Although if you want to chip away at trash slowly with a zealer/healer build. and switch to healsetup for bosses, sure.
