Mouseover-macros

13 posts in this topic

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,

Also, please both check that you have the latest version of ElvUI? :)

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 ;)

      Hello all.
      I decided yesterday to try to setup my resto spec on my shaman.  Normally, I tend to play dps specs but after an interesting encounter during an invasion yesterday, I decided to try my hand at the healing aspect of my shaman.
      Here is my current resto armory setup:  https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/kul-tiras/agneese
      I figured I should ask before I leap into this.  I currently have Elvui installed but wanted to see if Vuhdo would be a better substitution for the Elvui frames for healing.    I know I need to setup Weakauras, but have yet to do so.   Therefore, some basic questions I have are:
      1.  How to disable a conflict between Vuhdo and Eluvi frames?
      2.  If I use only Vuhdo frames and not Elvui frames, can that be set differently for dps specs too?
      3.  Since I move with my mouse, all my spells are on my G910 keyboard.  This keyboard has 9 extra "G" keys that I can put a simple macro on to use spells with or without modifyers.  I also am interested in how to setup perhaps two different skills that complement/synergize with each other on one key (even if I have to press said key twice).
      Any help would be appreciated.  Please keep in mind I am a total novice when it comes to healing so simplicity while I learn is appreciated.   Thanks in advance.  :)

      I've been playing with the ElvUI and recently started working on my Enhancement Shaman.  But I noticed that when I am in combat, practically every skill/talent I use shows up above my character bar in a series of bars, with listing each skill or talent I use.  I cannot figure out how to remove those as they tend to clutter everything up and I already know what I am using, so its unnecessary for it to be repeated in bars above my character.
      How do I remove those?  I've been trying to figure it out but the set for ElvUI is a bit confusing for me and I have tried a few things which I ended up reverting because I mucked up things.
      So have need of some assistance please.  I shall endeavor to go repeat this phenomenon and take a screen shot so you can see what I am referring to, and attach it when I get it.
       
      Edit:  Here is a screen shot showing what I am talking about.  Please note items inside yellow square on left bottom of shot.

      Just throwing this shower thought out there because why not.
      Would it be possible with reasonable amount of resources and time that you have available, to create couple of generic general gameplay/map guides for Heroes of the Storm? There are already a couple for other games, although mostly pretty old ones. Things like general guidelines for tanking, healing and stutter stepping as well as map guides of what heroes are which priority and how the maps play out? You already have some maps covered at the "map specific advice", but as the "new hero guide format" cuts the map specific advice part off, would adding such thing be possible. Not that I would be desperately in need of one, but if I had to guess, a lot of people would be glad to get them available.
