i've had had geist once, long ago in the BC era, saw it on someones youtube video and i thought it was the most imba thing out there, perfect to replace that ever buggy auto bar, however it and i had one major discontempt that just coulnd be overcomed, it uses the same actionbars as bartender (dont remember if its the blizz standard 1-6 bars or the extra 4 bartender offers), meaning that action bars x-y will be shared by bartender and geist. since im a druid of many specs and spots i make use of those extra bars gifted by bartender as stance shifters for my many forms, truthfully i think clever use of bartender can give u just about as much functionality as geist does.presently i use Opie which i find to be MUCH more functional and dosnt overide any other bars since it creats its own limitles sets of action "bars" with tremonds configurabilty and practicality. i use it to replace my shapeshift bar (although woulnt recomed this for pvp), quick gear set change, consumables, tradeskills ring, ALL mounts ring by category with sub rigns for each mount type. So as u sugested of having a quick pop-under-the-mouse actionbar with cooldowns or a portal bar, why just settle for a 1 (one) rigid ugly looking bar when u can have the pretty ring opie offers with the added quick action function, NO CLICKING OR POINTING required, just press and release the hotkey or combo and voila!PS: sorry for the wall of text :P

oh and yes, Vuhdoo is the best healing ui out there(yes i tried them all), smart. functional. and very configurable, i higly recomend this for any resto druids as it depicts the hots much better than grid ever could, and its everthing healbot is +1 .... although configuring it probably requires u to have a collage degree XD , just kiding watch the 30 min (condensed) tutorial videos carefully and ull get the hang of it, once u know how its piece of cake (god knows how many times i had to reconfigure it from scratch DURING a actual raid cuz my stupid kid brother reset everything, while i was away at school/work)

I agree with you that Opie is a better addon than Geist. I have my consumables (ALL of my raid consumables, anyway) bound to a key that will use my lock cookie, then Runic Health Potion in order. So, one Keybind = self healing in combat.

Well, duh.Geist *has* to share the buttons with your bars. Luckily there are lots of bars. Edit the buttons file in geist to change which button ids are associated with geist, and choose unique numbers not associated with your bars.
