Using GridCreat macro and copy/pasta the macro code below (replace Flash of Light with Holy Light to make the two macros)/stopcasting/cast [target=mouseover,nomodifier,exists] Holy Light; [target=mouseover,exists,modifier:ctrl] Holy Light; [target=mouseover,exists,modifier:shift] Holy LightPut macro in button. I use bongos but you can you any other bar mod. Bind the button to your choice of key or mouse button.Best way to heal. Just place mouse over the player and press the button that you bound the macro to.

I have a similar problem with my 64 elemental shammy. My mains are a mage and warlock and I've never healed anything before.I use the shammy like a mage and he does very well with crits and kills mobs with lightening before they reach him.To date I've never had to heal anything in an instance.Rydolomo

yup. that's how I do it. it's really efficient and tricks people into thinking that I'm awesome at healing raids >_>

As of 2.3 /stopcasting is not needed for macros. It has been built into the server side interaction with the client.I'm a holy paladin and have been for about 2 years, and played a resto druid prior to that. However I did level up with Ret and I can attest that it is not difficult to heal as an offspec just by switching out to some int/mp5 gear. I'm finding that my shaman is the same. She may be enhancement but I have no problems healing in instances if I just bump up my mana pool and regen.I will also say that sometimes it's better to start out your time healing by just binding the heals to a few keys (literally a very few keys for pally) and use F1-F5 to target party members and hit the keys. Once you get a feel for how the heals work then it's much easier to fold that into a mod if you like. My mods just give me the info I need (health bar/mana bar/highlighting for debuffs) and I do the rest myself cause I hate click casting.
