I like to heal and aspeccially in PvP. We all know this goes fast, and it would help a lot if I could see how many health a (friendly) target has.
There are some options in game but they spam my screen or take simply to much time (have to click target then look all the way to his hud next to mine or right down in my screen)
I would like to see his health in one glimps right were the action is, on his head !! :)
What would it be great to have a little (no big spam bar)health bar on the (friendly) target simply bye just hovering above him with my mouse cursor.
Aloft would give you health bars over their heads all of the time. Or you could use a tooltip-based one. I don't recall if default UI has a health bar attached to your tooltip, but if so you could use a mod like TipWrangler to just attach it to your cursor. Or you could use TinyTip or CowTip which show health bars (CowTip's are nice and customizable). Or PitBull has a mouseover unit frame that attaches to your cursor as well.
I tried them all, some won't work. And the ones that work dont have the feature i am looking for.
The one with nameplates on all the time is a bit to much screen spam but most of all it is not showing the nameplates over 20 yards or so(have to get realy close to the place of combat, no good for my priest)
The one with the tooltip on mousecursor is prommising but it has to much info (spamming my vieuw) the info is very relevant but not in the middle of my screen, I only want a name and a little health bar!!
as u all can quess iam a total noob at scripting and all that comes with it and because i am dutch i have also a hard time to understand all the technical stuff... but....
I red on wowace some about a addon called cowtip. I believe its still under devellopment. I think it could do the trick for me, (just show a simple little health bar and perhaps dispellable buffs on mouse over 'friendly' target).
Ofcause i tried to get cowtip to work on my comp but (u can allready guess) it wont work... i hate my total lack of technical computer stuff!!!!! Knowing others have no problems getting it to work. Ok thats it ... i got it of my chest :D
Still hoping on a response of some kind witch could help me in the right direction.... ty :)
