CC macro for undead:#showtooltip/clearfocus [@focus,dead]/targetenemy [btn:2,noexists]/focus [btn:2][@focus,noexists]/cast [@focus] Shackle Undead1) Clears your focus if it's dead; 2) If you right-click, targets the next enemy if a target doesn't exist (not really necessary); 3) Sets your target as your focus if you have no focus, or if you right-click, sets a new focus no matter what; 4) Shackles your focus target. Basically, left-clicking will keep your focus shackled, but if you need to shackle a new target, right-click will set that up.I'm a mouseover healer, and this is the basic macro of what I use:#showtooltip/cast [btn:2, @player][@mouseover, help] HealIf you right-click, it'll self-cast, else if your mouseover target is friendly, it'll heal that, otherwise, it'll cast as normal. Works with healbot also, which I use. Personally, I use a more complicated setup that incorporates healing spells with attack spells, such as:#showtooltip/cast [btn:2, @player][@mouseover, help] Heal; [@mouseover, nodead, harm][harm] Smite; HealBasically, attack the target if it's hostile, otherwise heal. I don't necessarily recommend it since it requires some practice and understanding, but it cuts down the number of keys I have to press.Finally, I don't really understand the downside of mousovers. Movement has never been an issue, but maybe that's because I have fingers that can WASD while hotkeying and clicking all at the same time. Maybe it's because my mouseover macros allow having clicked targets too, so it's the best of both worlds. But the thing I don't like about click healing is that it's just an additional click in between targetting someone and getting off a heal. And if you accidentally move the mouse while clicking, the click turns into a drag and you won't get your target until the next corrective click.

My CC macro is slightly different. I use:#showtooltip Shackle Undead/clearfocus [button:2]/stopmacro [button:2]/focus [target=focus, noexists]; [target=focus, dead]/cast [target=focus,exists,nodead] Shackle UndeadThe first line does two things. First, if you leave the macro icon as the ? it will display the Shackle Undead icon on your macro button. Second, it provides the Shackle Undead tooltip when you place your mouse over it.When you right click on the macro button, the next two lines clear your focus if you have one selected and then stop running. This feature is for clearing your focus if you need to change your CC target, such as if something broke your CC but there is another mob firing at the group from range. Right click the button and these lines clear your focus so you're ready to set a new one. This is only necessary to do if your current focus is still alive. If it's already dead, the next line will set your new focus.Now the tricky stuff. The /focus line sets your target as your focus if you meet one of the following three conditions:1. You have no focus target2. You have a focus but it no longer exists (such as a despawned mob)3. You have a focus but it is deadWhat this means is that any time you left click the macro button, it will set your target as your focus, but ONLY if you don't have one or the one you have is dead or non-existent. If you have a living focus target, it will NOT change your focus. This is the key to why this macro is so helpful because the left click will also run the final line.The last line of the macro checks for you to have a focus, verifies it is indeed alive and then casts your CC on it, EVEN IF YOU ARE TARGETING ANOTHER MOB OR PLAYER, without changing your current target!
