Thank you guys for all the help, but I do have one more question. I was wonder which corner text grid plugin I need, seems like there's a million of them. If someone could help me that would be awesome, a link would be great too.
Has nobody tried rewatch? I really enjoy this mod it takes up a fair amount of space but is really easy to use and has timers built in as well as LB stacks. Got it from curse when i had issues with healbot. The only thing that sucks is when people are added and dropped from groups.
no question --> grid is the way to go if you only do healing --> fast, efficient, adjustable. in combo with clique the very best you can get.
i healed all the time in BC, but never got used to grid for myself. i can't help it, but i dont like coloured points in the corners...
now i'm moonkin (boonkin); sometimes i need to do some healing support; and i need to do raidbuffing. thats whiy i use healbot.
i can simply track mark of the wild and thorns, mouse-click the one to buff and finished.
someone to dispell? no prob.. healbot colours that person (my config: red and purple), and i do a mouseclick --> finished.
need sone heal? you see symbols of the cast showing left duration AND number of stacks on it - perfect!
and you keep your target! means: you can keep the boss targeted, rooted enemy in focus and are still able to heal.
the only thing i dont like is that you cannot change your target with healbot. i happened to forget to define "resurrect" for healbot...pitty me. but now its done.
finaly, if you click-heal, you MUST have at least a 5 button mouse imho. i tried 3 buttons and nearly broke my fingers using all the "alt-click", "shift-click" and other combos
I prefer sRaidFrames instead Grid.
Often you are to observe not only dispellable debuffs, but others as well. To predict that person will be getting dot damage etc.
This can be done via Grid as well, but it requires manual reconfiguring Same functionality but less to configure
Btw, i should recommend addon like Hot Candy as well. To observe all casted hot bars.
Ability using methond is quesiton of habits.
I use mouseover macroes I was using clickit for some time, but after i encountered problem of running, turning and clicking abilities with different modifiers, i've changed the way of using abilities. It took some time to get into the habit of this, but i am quite happy with this right now
Macroes have some bonuses - you can heal not only by panels, but by running pple, or even name plates, and this is usefull in case of interface crushing or logging while fight (some of my panels dont initialise in fight if i am logging in)
I think that's a big generalisation. A lot of people, myself included, have absolutely no problem at all using our little finger to activate modifiers. For me it is fluid fast painless and easy.
imho, clicking once must always be faster than pressing and holding one key + clicking afterwards...maybe you are extremely fast and it wont matter (latency), but i love to keep it simple. if i can buy comfort for very little money, i do.
and about gereralism: we ALL do it; especially when posting here :P
If anything, I prefer a hybrid method. I'm using Clique for Lifebloom, Rejuv, remove curse and abolish poison, and mouseovers for pretty much everything else. I think that in most situations this tends to give me the best of both worlds.
I'm having no luck getting lifebloom setup this way. I've tried following several different guides and most mention to click on frames then center text 2. The issue I have is that under Frame I only have Center Text and Center Icon. There is no center text 2 or 3.
Am I missing an addon perhaps? Any help is appreciated.
EDIT: Even though I looked for half an hour on how to fix this, amazingly 5 minutes after I post I find the answer. Linking it here for any who have similar issues. Thanks to Tree Bark Jacket
Having searched interface sites for a while now and finding no interesting UI's. I realized I'll have to do this myself. I was thinking of something like Grid+Clique, but I'm wondering if I need any additional plugins or addons to the side of it. As long as it doesn't cloud my UI with useless information as I'm only resto during the occasional offspec.
I don't really see a need for clique, theres nothing you can do with it that you can't accomplish with mouseover macros. Less mouse clicks to worry about, faster healing response, and less mods to worry about.
I don't think this is possible, since you can't test conditionals based on spell availability (which is different from stances) other than a brute force random /castsequence. What I have set up is binding mousewheel down for RJ and mousewheel up for SM, it works for me rather well.
Curious... I've been giving this serious consideration but I zoom-in/out a lot so have been hesitant. What do you all keybind for zoom-in/out (if it's not the default mouse-up/down)?
Or is their a way to only have mouse-up/down keybind to SM/RJ if you're hovering over the Grid panel? Now that I think about it, if you bind these in Clique I know their is a Clique option for which frames to make the keybindings active on. I will give it a whirl tonight and report back if no one else does first.
EDIT: Answered my 2nd question shortly after posting. Funny how that works.
