I like the macro announcement idea for Efflorescence. I honestly caught myself unconsciously running out of it in the first few dungeons I did after the patch. I definitely don't blame others for getting out. I think I'll macro my Swiftmend with something like "Casting Efflorescnence around /target. Stand in the pretty green circle for heals."

Wow what a good idea. I'll have to do that too, I think. I think it should also say "THIS IS NOT BAD GREEN STUFF! DON'T MOVE OR THE TREE WILL PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE" Well, not so much a tree all the time. But maybe the T10 druid helm vine-bunny can attack them in the face.

I like the idea too... but here's the thing.I have all of my spells binded to Clique which I then incorperate onto grid. I have to raid frames, just mine, the thing I'm targeting, and the target's target. I don't need to see health bars on the side of my screen because everything is on Grid. Clique takes bindings directly from my spellbook so I'm not even sure it's possible to bind a macro using my system. If it is I'd love someone to teach me how to do it because you can't open the Macro screen while you have Clique up because that will close out your spellbook which is what the add-on is attached too. If I wanted to manually make a macro that would mean I would have to download an entirely different add on, figure out how to use it, then make said macro and make it be seperate from all my other add-ons which gives me more add-ons, which means more lag, which means less heals, which means more people dying... ALL of that just because people can't teach themselves "Hey, DBM isn't screaming at me to move out of something, I don't see any debuffs or ticks of damage floating around my screen, and I seem to be getting healed, but this must be a UI error from the patch so I gotta GTFO!!!" Yeah, no. Learn it... not that hard. I have every single role that the game offers, all geared ICC level... I think I can figure this one out on my own :P

Actually, Clique will accept macros, although you have to use the [@mouseover] qualifier to cast at what you click on. Write the macro first, then open up Clique. You should see an option somewhere to add a macro command to your list; you'll have to type the name into Clique. All of my abilities are on macros that allow me to use qualifier keys to cast at non-default targets; I've gotten away from Clique for the most part since I've gotten the Razer Naga mouse, but clever selection of qualifiers worked for me even with a normal mouse with Clique. I've even macroed abilities like Fade just so that if I ever need to change them I can without having to mess with redoing my keybindings. I'd recommend having most spells on macros, especially ones that can affect both friendly or non-friendly targets so that you can use the same binding in a variety of circumstances.
