Keybind question with VuhDo

Sign in to follow this  

3 posts in this topic

I use a logitech G700 mouse and I bind the 4 buttons on the side to numbers on the spell bar.

When I set up VuhDo I can bind left, middle, right to spells but I need to bind more than 3 spells.

In VuhDo there is a "Mouse" section and a "Keys Global" section where numbers 1-16 can be bound do spells. I'm not entirely sure what this means but I tried binding 1 to rejuvenation but if I hover over the person I need to heal in VuHdo and either press one or the side mouse button bound to 1 it only ever casts the spell on my target ignoring VuHdo.

Is there something in VuhDo I am doing wrong or another addon that supports my in game keybinds?

One possibility I guess is to just use left, middle, and right only and then set up Shift + left, shift + middle, and shift + right or alt etc. as modifiers. I am guessing this is how other people do it? It's a bummer about not being able to use the side buttons I usually use for 1, 2, 3 etc. but this might be my only option :(

 

Edit: For other people stumbling on this I wanted to mention I created the groups/frames using the VuhDo quick start guide on the shammy forum and it helped me make sense of the ~8 panels I was looking at when I first installed the addon.

OK, so given the above this is what I decided to set up for binds:

 

Left - Rejuv
Right - Regrowth
Middle - Ironbark

Sh + left - Lifebloom
sh + right - Wild growth
Sh = Mid - Focus

ctrl + left - Nature's Cure
ctrl + mid - Tranquility
ctrl - right - Swiftmend


Left side of Mouse Buttons
1 - Rejuv <- (ignore, may bind sun/moon/wrath, thorns/cyclone or some other spell later)
2 - Lifebloom <- (ignore, may bind sun/moon/wrath, thorns/cyclone or some other spell later)
3 - Essence of G'Hnair 
4 - Eflorescence

==========================

 

My thoughts here is I put Essence of G'Hnair and Eflorescence on side buttons because the target is relevant. 

 

The main spells I will need to spam often (I think) are Rejuv, Regrowth, and Lifebloom.

I usually drop Eflorescence where I think it looks useful, roll Rejuv to everyone, Lifebloom to the tank only, and then Regrowth whoever is taking damage. Most everything else is a cooldown.

The middle mouse button is harder to reach for something I am constantly casting so that is why I have CD's on it. 

Shift is also easier for me to reach than ctrl so I tried to order spells from most common casts = easier to reach binds to less common spells are harder to reach binds.

I'll probably keep a note up with the binds in the other monitor while I get used to where things are.

I have some other binds for other things and I might tweak things a bit but I think that covers the core of my healing arsenal (Resto is a 4th spec for me so might be forgetting something important). I should probably heal a fight or 2 in LFR to test it.

how to you select ppl using your interface ? I would advise to keep the left button for selecting people, it may become handy in some situations. For instance you may have an interrupt/root/silence/stun macroed with the overmouse modifier so you need to be able to heal someone while monitoring ennemies with your mouse pointer (that's mainly for pvp tbh)

You can get rid of ironbark, it does require anticipation  so map it on the keyboard.

      Recently downloaded Vuhdo, and I'm completely lost on how to set it up. I was wondering if anyone had any restoration druid profiles they'd be willing to share along with screenshots of how it looks? Thank you in advance!

      Hi,
      I want to add Deceiver's Grand Design buff to my Vuhdo UI, but I'm not sure about how to do it.
      I've tried with a bouquet, but when I cast trinket no icon is added to panels.
      How could I do it?
      Thanks

      I recently obtained several high item level trinkets for resto, but since healing isn't supported on simcraft I have no way of telling what to use when.
      I have a 930 Amalgam's Seventh Spine, a 910 The Deceiver's Grand Design, a 905 Sea Star of the Depthmother, and a 910 Bloom of New Growth
      I'm currently using the grand design and sea star, but am wondering if any of the others are better than the star.
       
      I also have a question about ele trinkets, specifically at what number of targets I should swap my 930 Tarnished Sentinel Medallion for my 920 Spectral Thurible? My second ele trinket is a 895 Whispers in the Dark, which as far as I can tell should always be used.

      Hello All,
      I need some help!  My HPS seems a bit low, and I need some advice on how to up my healing.  My role in raids is to focus on the tank/off tank  and raid heal as I can.  I've taken up this role for two reasons: I am the most consistent healer, being that I am almost always there, and two, because my BF is the main tank, and since we live together, it's easier for us to coordinate cool downs between us.
      My ilvl is currently 890, I have two legendaries, and my artifact is maxed.  I do have two other legendaries in my bags, but they are the neck putting me in my own little bubble, and the pvp ring.  Below are my current stats.
      I realize I use Regrowth more than I should, but it generally is my "OH SHIT" button.
      What can I change to up my healing and help the raid?
      Armory: Clementie
      HPS: Raid Night

      Hello! I am Syanah. :) 
      Anyway onto the details. I'm at 904 equipped currently. My weapon is at 919 with two of the ones that makes Living Seed do more healing, and the one that increases mana regeneration. As of writing this I have 48 traits. My talents are Cenarion Ward, Displacer, Guardian Affinity, Typhoon, Cultivation, Germination, and Flourish. My haste is at 26%, my crit is at 17%, mastery at 11%, and (somehow even though I just kinda ignore it) versatility at 12%. 
      Ok. My rotation for large amounts of burst is normally wild growth, swiftmend the lowest, cenarion ward on the next lowest, then throwing rejuvs as much as i can before florishing.
      My tank rotation is just keep as many hots on them as i can, use Ironbark when it's off and when they need it a lot, and keep Cenarion on the tank taking the most damage.
      For large damage on people i immediately hit Ironbark, regrowth to stabilise if it's very bad, then other hots to get a better Swiftmend. 
      For my mana issues I first like to use what I call "manaburst". It's pretty much just a macro binding Innervate and Essence of G'hanir to work together. I also have Leytorrent potions. 
      For legendaries I currently use Essence of Infusion and Velen's Future Sight. I have The Dark Titans Advice, Pyrdaz, and X'oni's Caress. Trinkets I have Ephemeral Paradox, Etraeus' Celestial Map, and the Flask of Solemn night. I use Solemn night and Velen's.  I have my four piece in the form of cape, head, pants, and shoulders. 
      Soooo.. pretty much it'd seem like I'd be doing ok but honestly I feel like I don't do enough. (These aren't 100% accurate numbers, so be warned.) I usually seem to be around 400-600k, but it drops to mostly 200-400k at the end of fights. I raid in a heroic guild, so it's a little less important that I be the very elite of the elite, but still. There's 3 healers in all. Myself, another Resto, and a Holy priest. We have another healer, a resto shaman, who doesn't heal all that much anymore but still. Pretty much I'm always behind them the holy and the other resto. (They are really good though, so /shrug)
      Anyway I'm going to post my armory, and warcraftlogs. (I have no idea how to use logs so... here goes!) 
      Armory: 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/nordrassil/syanah
      annnd hoping it worrrrks
      Log I think if this works:
       https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/13553554/11#difficulty=4&class=Druid&spec=Restoration&metric=hps&bracket=21
       
      I think I got it to show my healing from on of our runs... I think. 
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xfKndz9P2hgHLbV3#fight=7&type=healing
      This is the most recent I can find. 
      So basically I just wanna know from some other restos how it looks, how to improve, and what I should look to do. Been worried that my healing isn't up to par with what a 904 should be so that's what mostly made me post this and because I wanna be the best i can be for my guild and our progression for Tomb. :)
      (Also I apologize if I this wrong. I have no idea what I'm doing.)
