I have the Naga and the nte52 (i think it's called). I understand that to use these things you must do these mouseover macro's and such. But I think I just don't get it, because I'm too use to Cligue and Healbot for healing. When I see "mouse over", it makes me think I have to hover over the player in the mass of battle and that just seems silly (and not true of course). :-)The question I have, how do you go about using say the Naga for raid healing? Do you have to click on the person you want to heal (2 step process as someone said) or is there a mod like (CT Raid or Grid) or way to make it work like Healbot where you just move over to the person and press that macro key on the Naga (1step process)?

I use Grid to give me a nice, small view of a 25 man raid. Use a couple of grid addons so I can see 4 dots per corner, so I can track my shield, weakened soul, blessed healing, renew, inspiration, grace, etc on any player.I use another addon that gives a third line of text which I use for debuffs, like Mark of the Fallen Champion or Infest.Then I just mouse over the person and press a button. For all of my 10 *must have* casts, they are on non-modifiers, so I can be *very* mobile. Sometimes, say the trash boss before Dreamwalker, I'll target the NPC tank and heal him by mousing over my target's placard. Shield, greater heal, renew, etc. it's fun.The beauty of mouse over macros is that they work on any frame that targets something. Party windows, default raid UI, healbot frames, grid frames, X-Perl, you name it. They don't require an addon to setup and manage.The only downside is that WoW's limitation on the number of macros a toon can have is too derned small.

@ SteveI very much agree with you here. Can't get enough macro slots for all the things I want to macro. It's especially a problem on hybrids where I have two or three sets of abilities. WTB more macro slots, Blizzard!
