Just a quote on an interesting (somewhat old btw) post i've found some time ago:
/cast [target=mouseover] insertspellnamehere
The above Macro is incredibly, incredibly useful. It has single handedly removed much of my guilds problems with removing debuffs since the loss of Decursive.
You make this macro, and for the fight, bind it to 1 or 2 on your bar.
Then, very simply, use your right hand to move your mouse pointer over the raid window where the person afflicted by whatever debuff you want to remove is... and use your left hand to click '1' or '2' to key the macro, and there you go, spell removed.
You can clear up an entire group VERY fast with this macro, especially if you use the Blizzard Default UI Group bars. Small enough you can just run down them spamming the removal spell every second on the groups you're assigned to.
Oh, another very big key:
ASSIGN GROUPS TO SPECIFIC PEOPLE.
This will help to no end, and prevent multiple castings of curse going to the same people and others not getting the debuff off fast enough.
Various Macros include:(Note: These are individual macros, not lines of a single macro)
Important note: No you do not have to have the (Rank 2) next to the spell. If you just put in the correct spell name, it will automatically cast the highest rank spell of that name. I've tested this. The (Rank 2) additions are for downranking.
You can make more macros using the targer=mouseover command. Healing spells. Renew. Rejuv. For PvP, you can make it Hunter's Mark or Corruption or Siphon Life, or any other instant cast spell you want to rain over multiple people in the feild/cast on a specific moused over target. That Purge macro above for Shamans is awesome for PvP. Just move your mouse around and start purging an entire field of enemies.
This, of course, makes Gnomes even more Imba then before... but we'll get over it. -grins-
Oh, and it makes Tauren EVEN MORE ANNOYING! (zomgCant!See!)
All you need to do is hold your mouse pointer over the person OR their name in the raid window to get the Mouseover macro to work and heal them.
Also, just so you all know. With the right setup and assigned groups, you can and will be able to remove debuffs FASTER then you did with Decursive. It really does. Especially as you can remove priority targets first with much more reliability.
Its more work, sure, but its also more fun.
Give it a try. It may help your raids. Best of luck.
I am very happy to see an alternative to clique, tho I love both.
However, as far as I understood, you can place macro text into the text box and bind it to a mouse key, yes ?
A simple example such as :
/cast [target=mouseover] Cure Disease
does not perform anything for me. No curing neither the message "there's nothing to dispell"
Am I doing something wrong ?. I have no errors listed in Bugsack. Everything else just works fine.
Update: Nevermind, found the error. Was my fault :)
Why not just select spell and input "Cure Disease"?
Yea, was a silly example, true. No you're right ;) I just posted some code, because , before I found out my mistake, I could use any macro (and for testing purpose I just used this short one), without making it work ;)
I also stand by my earlier comment. "It just seems that this is a duplication of effort that could possibly be best spent elsewhere."
I don't post a lot, but felt compelled to in this case.
Well, I'll take up the discussion.
The UI in C2C is *entirely* different from the UI in Clique. The targeted userbase is very different due to the learning curve of the C2C UI.While C2C targets users of FuBar, Clique is more open for all to use. I also have some features planned that takes the addon in a whole other direction.
How does this case make it different from look at, for example CTRA and all the other raid frame addons that came out later?
Also first click cast addons that comes to mind, CastParty (which I used to hack a lot on a year back), Heart, AceHeal and others-. SetAttribute is the way to do it now.
Let me attempt to clarify my thoughts. I have absolutely no issues with a competing click-casting addon. I would love to see tons of them, because it allows me (and the users) the ability to choose which one suits their needs the most, creates a larger body for standards and allows me as an author to develop mine for a specific niche, or use another addon. I am absolutely thrilled that another addon was created to provide choice.
I am absolutely and 100% appalled at the eccentric fanboisim that is currently painting itself all over this thread. From ag's initial description of the addon itself (which, I'll point out as always is mostly bullshit and complete and utter meaningless fluff. At least the word "efficient" wasn't painted all over this one like it is everything else in the community. Efficiency is now a meaningless word when it comes to this community).
If you haven't asked me personally why I don't use Ace.. then its none of your fucking business. If you don't want to use my addon because it no longer uses Ace, then that's your fucking perogative, and I honestly don't want you as one of my users. If you want to use Click2Cast because you prefer the UI or its simpler for your needs, then go ahead, I welcome it. Clique and Click2Cast respect each other, because the authors are far from selfish and willing to work together.
The users are tearing this community apart, and making the divide worse than its ever been. The Ace community has more fanbois than ever, and its more intensely hated than its ever been. The majority may have shifted over, but I hope the trend doesn't continue because its fostering so much bad practice and blood into the UI community, that it makes me sad.
All I did say in my initial post is that it **aims** to be smaller through a smaller UI, shared code... I think that's it..
Use C2C if you want to use a panel plugin/dropdown menu or slash command UI.
Use Clique if you want a drag and drop system integrated with the Blizzard spellbook.
Clique and C2C shares the same ClickCastFrames standard, which I btw helped spreading to Sage (unit frame addon) today. I am an open source/open standards guy and will always be. I chose Ace because it's easier for me. An addons efficiency (which is the first time I mention in this thread) depends only on the skill of the coder, not libraries. Both Clique and C2C aims to be as efficient possible, and as Cladhaire is a great coder, expect Clique to be very efficient.
About fanbois, people spreading wrong information, it is my personal view that they exist anywhere for any group, no matter what you say or do... I prefer to do my thing and not care so much about what fanbois on either side thinks or does. My passion is coding, not politics...
