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).

Cheers! Posted Image

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 ;)

      So I know there is a feature by Blizzard to use random mount fitting to the area you're in but I wanted to make myself a macro for using this feature this way.
      /cast [nomod] <random mount>
      /cast [mod:alt] Sky Golem
      So is there a line usable in macro for random mount feature? Pressing shift and clicking on the icon does not output any line, just casts a mount summon.

      Are you tired of not getting three Blizzards off during Frozen Orb? Waste too much time having to place blizzard after you activate it? Look no further! The following Macro will cast Blizzard at your cursor (Like quick cast). No targeting reticle. No worries. Enjoy.

      #showtooltip
      /cast [@cursor] Blizzard

      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.

      Hi guys! 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/chamber-of-aspects/erthol   So this is my mistweaver monk here. Now I have actually managed to start raiding and do normals every week. However I have a huuuuge problem, specifically that my hps is really, really low. A good example I think would be this Aggramar fight: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jKcxbLXrQ9pknDva#fight=27&type=healing   You can see how the other monk had much higher hps than me. I do understand my leggos are subpar, but meh, bad luck one could say. What I don't understand is what I'm doing wrong. I try to use renewing mist on cd, use Vivify. I know I haven't used Effuse too much, but that's because I was trying out fistweawing. Anyways, all my other logs are basically the same. I have way too high overhealing as well. Any help would be great, because I'm lost, I love the monk, I love the style, but somehow can't get it to work as I would like it to. Please help meeeeee! Thanks for the feedback.
