Mouseover-macros

Hi guys Posted Image

Asked this in a comment to the Resto-guide, before I realized this would be a better place:

I've recently switched to using mouseover-macros on all my healers (and indeed with a great number of non-healers as well). I works wonders when I hover my mouse over friendly healthbars (the floating bars), or over the actual characters, no matter what spells I'm casting.

However when I hover over the raidframes, I'm only able to cast instant spells, which means I can't cast the majority of my heals in this most efficient way... What am I doing wrong?

I am using the ElvUI raidframes, and enjoying it, and my macros look like this:

#showtooltip

/cast [@mouseover,help,nodead] [] Healing Wave

I hope you can help me out, it's been annoying me terribly!

/Nemo

p.s. I've also tried this macro, from the Resto-guide, with the same result:

#showtooltip

/cast [@mouseover,help][@target,help][@targettarget,help][] Healing Wave

Hello Nemo!

For those spells that are not working, I would like you to tell us on which keys you have them bound.

It is possible that the keys or mouse buttons that you are using for these spells have a predefined behaviour when used while hoverving over ElvUI's raid frames. Have you tried with a different raid frame addon, such as Grid?

Hi Damien, thanks for being so quick to answer!

At first I thought it was due to some issue with the mousebuttons that I've got some of my heals bound to, but the same thing happens if I bind my heals, to any other key... As of yet I've tried binding them to 3th and 4th mousebutton, 1-4, e, q, r, f, c and all those buttons together with a modifier such as shift or ctrl. No change.

Works fine for instant spells, no matter where I put them.

Before attempting the transfer to mouseover-macros I used healbot, but I founding not to my liking for a number of reasons. Back then I just click-casted.

I have not tried Grid, and as far as I can tell it has the same functions as ElvUI's raidframes, plus the opportunity for plug-ins.

The thing is, I really like not having to spend hours setting up ElvUI's raidframes. They work so intuitive right out of the box!

Thanks for helping out, cheers!

Hi Nemo,

Could you post an example of an instant spell (like Riptide) and a casted spell (like Healing Wave) for us, so we can see for ourselves the exact code you're using in each case? The aim is to find out if there are any differences in the macro texts - once that is done, it might be that it's ElvUI's fault somehow (or another addon).

I don't normally use ElvUI's party/raid frames. I have just enabled them to do some tests on my shaman and it works just fine with any spell.

It could be that another addon is conflicting with ElvUI. Try disabling everything, except for ElvUI and try again. Does it still not worok?

Cheers,

First of: special mouse buttons don't work while hovering over unitframes I'm afraid (not with mouseover macros atleast), because the game considers pressing a special mouse button as selecting the unitframe. They do work with vuhdo and healbot I believe, but not with mouseover macros.

Second: could you give this macro a quick try? This is how my macros look like and they work for me.

#showtooltip

/cast [target=mouseover,help] Greater Healing Wave; [help] Greater Healing Wave; Greater Healing Wave

I just tested my macro on the ELVUI party frames, 10 and 25-man raid frames. They work for me. I have version 3.83 there has been an update to 3.84 that I'll install later, but there are no major changes in it.

If you want to get around the problem MadMonk stated, you could try using Clique to bind those buttons.

I use Mouse over macros on all my healers (all 6 of them!), have always used Grid and have my main heals bound to the number keys on the keyboard, as an example macro, I use this for Penance :

#showtooltip Penance

/stopcasting

/cast [target=mouseover,help][help][target=player] Penance

Hi everyone :)

Thank you all for your kind suggestions!

I have not been able to log on today, as I've been busy doing my final exam (of the year).

I'll see about changing the macro, and making sure I have the latest ElvUI version, some time tomorrow.

Is Clique, compatible with the ElvUI, raidframes? I'm sure I could manage to get used to having my heals on different keybinds, should I find a solution to the other problems, but I'd rather not have to :) I've just grown accustomed to using these keybinds, so I'd prefer not having to change them, if Clique can spare me the trouble :P

Once again, thanks for the help!

In Clique, you can bind as many or as few binds as you like. You can keep all the existing working ones and just bind the mouse buttons to Clique. I *think* that should work fine for you :)

It works :D

After reinstalling ElvUI, and adding Clique to my list of addons, I've now run a couple of dungeons, with all my macros working as intended!

I'm still not sure why it didn't work before, but it does now so I'm happy.

Thank you all for your kind help, I'm sure I wouldn't have found as good a solution without you.

Cheers :)

p.s. Wow, that a lot of different macros, that does exactly the same thing ;)

      Hi guys,

      I need some pro help to learn to heal properly with my druid.
      I started to play 3 months ago and I've tried to follow build, tips, place proper hots but I always get a very low efficiency index in raid logs with my guild (and with other people).
      My ilvl is currently 906, I have two legendaries, and my artifact is at max level. I do have two other legendaries in my bags: Prydaz and Xoni's. Below are my current stats:
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/es-es/character/dun-modr/elpocimas
      Here are a couple of logs of this week raids:
      ToS nm (only 5 bosses): https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/DWz34VPQ9aHtXp6C
      Another ToS nm (except KJ): https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/dXFnKbqAk43cahxr
      I think my HPS are rather lacking in comparison to other healers, even though I am not that far away gear-wise. It's so frustrating to see 11-20% of efficiency :(
      I'd appreciate any constructive opinion you have and thanks in advance.
      Regards

      Hello there,
      I was looking at some game play from the PTR for 7.3 and i really love the way Elvui was setup. :)
      My question for you guys is, can i find the setup somewhere or it's not shared ?!
      Thanks!
      By the way, this is the link to the video that i am talking about:

      I have the pants, gloves, bloodlust helm, chain heal ring and trinket.   The guide says pants and trinket.  I can't help but think the gloves are too good to let go.  I wish there was a way to sim for healers.  I would just like some of your thoughts and opinions on what legos you all would use.  Thanks!

      How do you increase the size of the various icons in ELVUI. i.e. the "Incombat" icon on the player frame.
      Thanks
