Newcomer to registering here but a have been a big fan of Tankspot for awhile. A big thank you to Chamenas for all the work in making this thread an absolte game changer for me! I have increased my effectiveness from healing in vanilla, BC, and WTLK and am doing ok in the heroics. Thank you!!!
I apologize if this was answered before, but I was hoping to get a little more guidance on few things if the healing community would be so kind:
1. Add ons - For years I have played with the typical awsd movement keys, mouse, and then my heals mapped to the 1,2,3,4 etc. so I could easily select and use kiy bindings to heal. I'm finding this to be inefficient as I try to move and heal et al. There was a TankSpot video that talked about peripheral vision on the screen, and how the healers he knew (the guy with curly hair - probably heresy I don't know him) put their buttons near to the middle of the screen to maximize peripheral vision to interact with boss mechanics appropriatley. Do you guys do that? Do you do that with Grid? For those that you Healbot do you actually heal with Healbot? I find Healbot good to show me my buffs like Beacon etc and who its on and its countdown, but not for healing and using that with a mouse and then my keys...I use X-Perl frame and fine the look nice, but have been challenged by Chamenas' suggestion of Grid. So, to summarize my question, how do you move and select targets and spells most efficiently? Would you mind sharing screen shots?
2. I need a little more help understanding how mouse over macros work (not setting them up - but how they work into how you heal). And how does Clique help with this?
3. Is there a downside to spamming Hand of Sacrifice on your tank? Does he lose threat from it?
Thanks in advance.
