Re: [Raiding] UI and Addon Thread

I mean, at some point you have to use your mouse to target, either by clicking something or just by moving the cursor. Using mouseovers removes your mouse buttons from casting spells (which is probably good), but targeting is always going to be limited to the mouse only.

And I don't think there's a real way to resolve that. If your mouse buttons cause a run forward or a strafe, that will work fine with VuhDo/Healbot/etc. If you need to actually move the mouse to turn or whatever, nothing can solve that.

Bingo, there's my problem. I use L/R button to move and direct the toon/camera with the movement of the mouse. Because I use a trackball this is actually not as bad as it sounds. I've tried it with a standard mouse and it feels very cludgy.

To be fair, mouse turning is common practice, and you just get used to turning real quick and then repositioning your mouse.

I'm pretty sure you can do mouseovers in Healbot. You definitely can in VuhDo. They cover very much the same ground in terms of the basics. Give 'er a try.

I still prefer clicks+modifiers to heal personally.

Will do and thanks for the tips everyone (and feel free to send me more if you've got any other pointers). My druid (the last toon I healed on) is still only 87 and honestly I really just started leveling my toons from 85 maybe a month or so ago so I'm a bit behind anyway.
