Thx Pastamancer for your last post, i thought about that and i decided to go back to the basics.
I redesigned my Nostromo-pad so that it allows me to use clique in a much more advanced way. This will be my solution for TBC and it will also solve the decursing-without-detox problem. (in addition with Grid)
You made me curious. Any details you could share? I purchased a N52 a week ago, and my current solution is to bind lots of keys to click-combinations, which then are handled by Clique.
That's what I've done in the past with my old n50. I really like my Logitech MX518 and started using it instead.
But I think there could be a much rounder solution in ONE Addon.
When dynamic updates aren't possible anymore with TBC, then just always display, let's say, 6 Healingtouch ranks in a special window (should look like grid ;) ). Now you got a friendly target with 1000 missing hps and the mod just alphas the rank 8 to 100% (its working like Grid somehow). Now you can click the button or use Clique for healing with the best rank > no overhealing (it's all undynamic yet). It is doing the same thing that Pasta perform with Theorycraft but enables a much faster function. (and you got a nice UI when it got the look of Grid).
You could write a Grid module that tells you what heal to use. So rather than seeing '-1.5k' in the center text, you would see 'HT6'. However, I'd much rather make the decision of what heal to cast myself instead of having an addon tell me what to do.
Factors in heal spell selection:
* health deficit
* incoming heals
* incoming damage
* in combat or not
* number of other units that need healing
* class/importance to the encounter
* personal preference (I don't heal people that don't watch their aggro)
That's way too much for me to be comfortable with an addon telling me what to cast and who to cast it on.
You don't need theorycraft if you know your heals and when to use them. I use a slow, efficient heal to top someone off or if the incoming damage is low and there isn't anyone else that I need to heal. I use a big, fast heal if there's a lot of people to heal or if the incoming damage is high. I use a big, slow heal if incoming damage is high and there are other heals incoming. If someone doesn't have aggro, they'll get a HoT or a slow, efficient heal depending on how many other people need healing.
Clique + Grid is all I need as a raid healer. Between Theorycraft for displaying my average heal for each spell and Grid telling me the health deficit, I don't need something that tells me what rank to use or who to heal.
Clique bindings for my priest in 1.12 are as follows:
