Help Mouse over Macro's

7 posts in this topic

Hi I'm new to the game just lvl'd my first char a disc priest to lvl 75 so far.

 

Stumbled on the Forum which I've found a lot more helpful / easier to navigate than the official forums (more fools you as I will now pain you with questions of extreme noobness).

 

So I've loaded the ElvUI interface (takes some getting used to when you first try it) but its growing on me fast and that was only 2 hrs ago.

 

I set up key bindings pretty much straight away but feel I'm at a stage where (after reading on this site :-) ) mouse over macros would help me out a lot.

 

After setting up the macros (only on 4 spells just to try it out) I realised it was not working the spells just healed my main target, now all i did was go in to macro's create new pick an icon (went for same as spell icon) copied the example off this site.

 

/cast [@mouseover,help,nodead][] Flash Heal

 

I also called the macro Flash Heal, then did the same for 4 more spells and quit the macro page.

 

Am i missing something? does the key binding to the spell know the that the macro is assigned to it just from the spell name at the end of the macro?

 

Sorry if this has been explained in more detail before if so please just point me to the thread its just I've never dealt with macro's in a game before and the above has not worked.

 

Any info will be much appreciated

 

Also sorry if this is posted in the wrong place

Creating a macro is effectively like creating a new spell entry in your spellbook, it doesn't do anything by itself.

In order to use it, you need to drag it to your bars where you would otherwise have the spell, then you can use the keybind for that bar slot as normal.

( I would also suggest at least investigating the mod "Clique", as it handles all this for you through the spellbook. Just open the Clique binding mode, then mouseover the spell in your spellbook and hit whatever key/key combination you would like bound to cast that spell. For instance, my disc priest uses shift+left click to cast Penance, and this works on the unitframes in ElvUI. )

Hello, I hope it's no problem to hijack this thread a bit :) I also have questions regarding mouse over macros for a healer.

 

RIght now I am using, for example:

#showtooltip
/cast [@mouseover,help] Rejuvenation;Rejuvenation
 
This will correctly cast Rejuvenation on mouseover, myself if I have no target and am not mousing over anything or my current target if my mouse isn't over anything. However, the ALT key no longer works to cast on myself, which I really want. Is there any way to correct this?
 
Bonus points if mouseover only applies to the party / raid frame and not game world targets, casted a few heals on a wrong target that way :)

#showtooltip

/cast [mod:alt] [@yourcharactername] Rejuvenation; [@mouseover, help, exists, nodead] Rejuvenation; Rejuvenation

 

give this a try, it should first check to see if the mod alt is being held, if it finds this to be true it will cast rejuvenation on yourself, if it does not find this to be true, it will cast rejuvenation on your friendly not dead mouseover, if you do not have a mouseover that is both friendly and alive, it will cast rejuvenation on your target.

That one only casted on me :) I did however make it work like this:

#showtooltip
/cast [mod:alt, @Beemo] Rejuvenation
/cast [nomod, @mouseover, help, exists, nodead] Rejuvenation; Rejuvenation
Now it works properly. Thank you!
 
Still, I will look into Clique, yesterday I made macros for most of my spells, got randomly disconnected while in a dungeon and when I came back I barely had anything on my action bars :D

Use [@player] to target yourself.

To shorten your macro (because I like to make them small because of the character limit) I would do this.

#showtooltip

/use [mod:alt, @player][@mouseover][] Rejuvenation

NOTE: haven't tested the macro yet as I'm not at my computer, just wrote it off the top of my head, but should work (the last [] I'm not entirely sure about)

You don't need help, exists, or nodead because Rejuv can only be casted on a friendly target that exists and is not dead,which makes those conditions redundant. And you shouldn't need nomod because it defaults to not having a modifier.
