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.

      Hello everyone,
      I want to ask for any tips on my logs, since I think I'm doing something wrong with my resto druid.
      I have good gear (currently 958 ilvl) but I see other druids with similar or less gear do way higher HPS than me on the logs. I think I should be doing more than 900/1k hps, but rarely go above 700 in many fights.
      Here are a couple of logs of Antorus hc:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/cHZLXF1t8J7YMwBT
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/zGB27L8KYp4HXJZQ
      I searched the logs and I think one of my main problems for the lack of healing is the rejuvenations. Other druids do far more healing with same or less rejuvs, since my average casts is around 450k (and other druids go up to 750 or even 1000).
      I don't know if it's a problem with timing or overhealing (other healers snipping me), but I want to know other opinions.
      Thanks a lot for your help.

      Hello!
      I think I am doing something seriously wrong with my resto druid. I have pretty decent gear but I see other druids with similar or less gear do way higher HPS then me on my recount meter. I've run simulations that said i should be getting 900hps but that's rather rare to see. During M+ runs when we're taking high damage i've seen 1-1.2mil hps - but in Antorus I feel like I'm stuck at 400-600hps
       
      Recently I've gone up 20 item levels and gotten 3 T21 pieces but haven't seen my hps improve much. I've switched from spring blossoms to double rejuv in hopes that i could hit higher hps but today in Heroic Antorus i was still the lowest healer (sorry no logs from that)
       
      Here are some logs from a guide I've been doing normal with:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/fAaV8v4YPbk6W1tD#fight=last&type=summary&source=15
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/fAaV8v4YPbk6W1tD#fight=4&type=summary&source=15
       
      Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

      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.
