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 ;)

      What stat %s should we aim for?
    • By Pandacho
      The guide was updated for Legion.
      Profile to import is here.
       
      ElvUI is a full UI replacement. It completely replaces the default Blizzard UI at every level with a new and better interface. It has multiple addons and plug-ins integrated into it, such as Dominos action bars and TidyPlates. As such, you’ll only ever have to update ElvUI and not worry too much about its individual components. This UI will arrange your interface to be more flexible and practical.
       
      DOWNLOADING AND INSTALLATION
      Download ElvUI from Tukui. The version on Curse is outdated.
      Following the above link, you will find two addons to download: Tukui and ElvUI. You need ElvUI:
       

       
      Unpack the downloaded archive to your WoW Addons folder (World of Warcraft -> Interface -> Addons)
       

       
      If you had ElvUI previously installed, you'd get a message asking to replace the current folder - click 'Yes':
       

       
      Log in to WoW. Click the 'AddOns' button in the left bottom corner of your character selection screen. Make sure that both ElvUI Config and ElvUI are enabled in the addons list:
       

       
      Press 'Enter World'. ElvUI config can be reached from the Main Menu (in game press Esc button-> press ElvUI button) or by typing /ec in chat.
      When entering the game for the first time after installing the addon, you'll get this screen :

       
      If you can't see this Installation screen, type /ec in chat and then press 'Install' button in the config window:

      You’ll now have a 8 step configuration process. Do not skip it if you don’t have ElvUI already configured on some other toon.
       
      [1] Click on ‘Continue’ to begin:
      [2] Step 2 of 8: CVars: Click on ‘Setup CVars’ → ‘Continue’
      [3] Step 3 of 8: Chat: Click on ‘Setup Chat’ → ‘Continue’
      [4] Step 4 of 8: Theme Setup: you can try all 3 buttons (Classic/Dark/Class) to see the difference and click ‘Continue’ after you decided.
      [5] Step 5 of 8: Resolution: choose ‘High Resolution’ if you have a 15 inch + monitor, otherwise choose ‘Low Resolution’ → ‘Continue’
      [6] Step 6 of 8: Layout: Choose the option you are interested in - a player / target / target of target Unit Frames will be at the bottom of the screen, not on the top and in a slightly different position for every role (You can click on every role to see the difference and to choose what you like better). If you chose a Healer role, you will get an announcement asking you to install the Clique addon, just click ‘Yes’ and ignore it, no need to install anything.

       
      Click ‘Continue’ when you’re done.
      [8] Step 7 of 8: Auras: I would advice for ‘Icons Only’ - we don’t need a million bars and timers for standard raid buffs. We all know that they are present. But you can select the ‘Aura Bars&Icons’ option too if it’s you taste. Click ‘Continue’ when you’re done.
      [10] Step 8 of 8: Installation Complete: You’re done with the basic installation, hit the ‘Finished’ button and it will reload your UI.
      After restarting, you’ll get a screen with a support announcement and tips. Check “Disable”, then press “Hide” if you don’t want these tooltips to come up. I suggest not to hide them until you’re completely familiar with ElvUI.
      Now we’re going to configure your UI a bit more.
      Typing /ec in chat will open the Config window.
       
      GENERAL:

      There are some very nice options here that make your life easier:
       
      - ‘Announce Interrupts’ dropdown menu. Set this to ‘None’ if you are using some other addon for it or set to any of the other options: Party/Raid/Say, etc.
      - Select an ‘Auto Repair’ option from the drop down menu.
      - Tick ‘Vendor Grays’ - awesome option!
      - Tick “Auto Greed/DE’ to automate rolling on greens. It’ll automatically choose Disenchant or Greed (depending on whether an enchanter is available or not). This option works only on max level so don’t be afraid to DE something useful.
      - You can disable the Order Hall Command Bar from here too. 
      - In the Objective Frame tab you can change its length.
       
      Go through the rest of options and check whatever you feel useful.
       
      MAPS:
      Before Legion it was a dropdown menu that was changed recently to a stand alone config window:

      While a 'World Map' tab is pretty obvious, you should configure properly the Minimap section:
      - Pay close attention to the Minimap Buttons menu (Garrison / Calendar / Mail / LFR Queue, etc) - you can resize, move, hide / hide in combat all the buttons.
      You should pay attention to the ‘Hide’ button. For some reason it is ticked by default so you’ll have to untick it for every button you want to see on your Minimap.
       
      DATABARS:
      Same as Maps, it was a dropdown menu in General tab and was changed recently to a stand alone config window:

      If you are still leveling or grinding Faction Reputations, you can configure here
      - XP Bar & Reputation 
      You can choose here all the standard options - move, resize, vertical / horizontal, show on mouseover.
      Tick 'Hide at Max level' for the XP bar - it's a nice option.
      Artifact Bar:
      A very useful in Legion - it shows gained/needed for the next trait AP for your currently equipped Artifact and open the Traits window on mouse click.
       
      Go through the rest of options and check whatever you feel useful.
       
      ACTION BARS

       
      - Tick ‘Enabled’
      - Tick ‘Keybind Text’. Displays bind names on the action buttons.
      - Tick ‘Macro Text’. Displays macro name on the action button so you'll be aware that pressing this button you'll run a macro and not a single ability.
      - Change ‘Font’ and ‘Font Size’ to whatever works for you.
       
      ‘Pick Up Action Key’ is the button that you must hold down in order to drag an ability to another action button - prevents from accidental messing with the buttons.
       
      Now check “Enabled” for Micro Bar (this is the one with Quests, LFR, Char Info, Spellbook, etc icons), any of the Bars 1-6, Pet Bar and Stance Bar. Actually, you can enable only Bar 1 and 2 or whatever works for you and disable all the rest.
      For every bar, there is a ‘Mouse over’ tick box - this will simply hide the bar until you mouseover it, which is useful for bars that are irrelevant during raids.
      In enabled Bars, you can choose the number of buttons per bar and vertical or horizontal style.
      - The ‘Buttons’ slider will allow you to set how many buttons a bar will have (the button cap is 12 though, you cannot have more than that in a single bar).
      - ‘Buttons Per Row’ - choose 12 if you want a horizontal bar, choose 1, if you want it vertical bar.

       
      Actually you don’t have to have exactly 12 buttons per bar. It can be any amount from 1 to 12 or even 2 rows of 6 buttons or any other configuration that you prefer.
      If you want to hide an Action Bar in a specific situation, for example during a raid, you have to type
      [vehicleui] hide; [overridebar] hide; [petbattle] hide; [nocombat] hide; show;
      in the 'Visibility State' window.
       
      Moving elements
      Now we will sort the bars on the screen. Click ‘Toggle Anchors:’

       
      You will then get this screen:

      Just mouse drag your bars to the proper position.
      If you feel that your bars are stick to something all the time, just untick ‘Sticky Frames’ option in the central Menu.
      In addition, you get a 'Nudge' menu with arrows and numbers on every bar you are clicking - you can use it for fine tuning (if you are interested in extremely precise positioning ^^)
      When you’re done, click on ‘Lock’ in the central Menu.
       
      Key Bindings
      To configure Hot Keys on your Action Bars, click on ‘Keybind Mode.’

      You will get this window pop-up:

      Tick Character specific Key Bindings only if you want different positioning of hotkeys on the bars for different characters. You’ll get an explanation of what to do on the screen. Do not forget to click ‘Save’ when you’re done.
       
      BAGS:
      Click ‘Enable,’ if you want to use ElvUI’s bag system. It’s nice, tidy and flexible in size and positioning. If you have an external bag addon, you will have to disable ElvUI’s bag system or you’ll get both of them messed up.
      I personally preferred to disable ElvUI bag system and use AdiBags addon. It’s the same graphic style but has very good smart section division by default including different gear sets - no need to configure anything. In addition you can have all the Currencies you want to track at the bottom line.
      Looks like this:

       
      BUFFS AND DEBUFFS
      Both ‘Enable’ and ‘Disabled Blizzard’ must be checked.
       
      CHAT:
      You can play here with the options or leave it untouched, move and resize chat  windows, remove / split existing or add new, add timestamps, enable chat history, etc.
      Let’s try to add a new chat window, so you’ll know how to do this.

       
      [1] Right click on the ‘General’ tab of your Chat window and select ‘Create New Window’ from the menu.
      [2] Name this window ‘Raid.’
      [3] Right-click on the newly created ‘Raid’ chat window and select ‘Settings.’
      [4] From the ‘Chat’ category, untick everything except ‘Party, Party Leader, Raid, Raid Leader, Raid Warning, Instance, Instance Leader.’
      [5] From the ‘Global Channels’ category, untick everything.
      [6] Click ‘Okay.’
      Remember that you can move chat windows - you will have to untick ‘Lock Positions’ option to do this.

       
      DATATEXTS:
      Datatexts are all the additional data that could be displayed at the bottom of chat windows, Action Bars and Minimap. 
      You can also interact with the datatexts. For example, clicking on Time will bring up Calendar, on Durability - your Character Info, on Spec - will change it to the secondary, mouseover on System - shows your addon list with the memory used, etc.
      There is a nice tab 'Currencies' where you may configure which currencies and in what format you want to see in Datatexts.

      Frankly, there are a million possibilities to try :)
       
      NAMEPLATES 
      If you are using external addon for the Nameplates, you’ll have to untick “Enable” here.
      Check “Enable” in tabs you want Nameplates on (I personally check only Enemy NPC but it's completely your choice):

      There are a lot of options to track and to choose from but they are all very user friendly so I wouldn't explain them one by one.
      Pay Attention that the Elite Icon was finally added to ElvUI so you don't need to write custom texts to track Rare and Elite mobs anymore.
       
      SKINS / TOOLTIPS / FILTERS
      Doesn’t matter. Do whatever you want here.
       
      UNITFRAMES:
      Enable only the UNIT FRAMES tabs that are relevant for you. All the rest - keep them disabled.
      You should disable all the Blizzard frames - keeping both Blizz and ElvUI frames creates unnecessary mess on your screen.
      For example as a raid healer I disable all the party/raid frames because I’m using VuhDo for it.
      You can use Clique and mouseover macros with ElvUI Unit Frames.
      ElvUI Raid Frames are very flexible: you can move and resize them, choose vertical or horizontal positioning. Any target data, buffs and debuffs could be configured separately for every kind of group. You can add and remove targets of your target, focus or pet, their cast bars, name, HP, level, raid icons, etc.
      If you are interested in tracking incoming heals or  threat, there are options for this too.

       
      PROFILES:
      The most awesome thing about ElvUI is that after you did it once, no need to configure the addon for every character. Just choose the toon or a named profile that you want to copy the settings from. If you have a viable offspec, you can also ‘Enable Dual Profile’ to configure it.
      Or you can just save different profiles for 10-man / 25-man raid or for tank / dps spec.
      Another nice option is to share your profile with other player (obviously they should have ElvUI too) when targeting them.

       
      I'm sharing my profile here for those who prefer not to start from scratch.
      Use 'Import Profile' button to import :)

      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:
