Now i know im new to the addons development scene. but from what i understand what blue posted int he fourms, they are going to give you some buttons you can move and assign to your party members. Likewise (if im reading correctly) you wont have to use ALL your buttons because of "Pop up" menus like i were to put a healing spell in actionbutton 1 and click it it could bring up all my healing spells and etc etc etc. I see alot of possabilites. Also if auto ranking spells is gone, couldnt someone maybe look in to making a mod that would maybe highlight the rank of the spell that woould be most suited for that target? Lest say i target PallyA and hes -344 hit points. The addon could see this while he is targeted and highlight the spell on your bar(s) that would be the best pick then YOU click and heal. Or is this an addon still thinking for you....?
ooo im at work but i think i might have a pretty good addon idea for BC. Now i am or was a Group Buttons user. I like click healingbecause i think it was easier anyway. Now that the BC nerf has come and i cant cast healing spells to auto rank i have to go reg mode for my spells which isnt the end of the world I think it will make ALL Healers better healers than they really are now, but back to topic. Maybe I could or someone could make an addon kinda like Sprocket(which is the shizzzz) but or there was a ring system out there like Secret of Mana on WI. Make it to where when you target friendly or Foe a menu you could come up next to you and using you mouse mouse over a bar or dor or square and scroll up and down quickly to select the type or rank of spell you wish to use. I know this is far fetched but it just an idea I had.
A menu like this is planned for Clique. You'll be able to bind it, and it'll pop up with all your main healing spell. It will highlight the one which has the most mana efficiency for the health deficit. You then open it up another level to select the rank (best one is highlighted).
