Raid Frames

To perform well as a Restoration Druid, you will need to see more HoTs on players in the group than the standard interface allows. There are multiple addons that will change your raid frames that you could use, pick any one of them:

In case you do not want to use a different raid frame addon, BigDebuffs expands the functionality of Blizzard raid frames.

To complement Grid2, ElvUI and BigDebuffs, you should either make mouseover macros as shown above or install Clique.

Boss Mods

Preparation for boss mechanics is extremely important as a Restoration Druid. You should have either BigWigs or Deadly Boss Mods installed.

WeakAuras

WeakAuras is without a doubt the most powerful addon that can perform almost any task. There are a lot of readily available WeakAuras on wago.io that will help you track procs, cooldowns, buffs, and debuffs.
