I think either I am misunderstanding what a lot of people are talking about... or possibly others are misunderstanding how some people heal.I have not yet set up any mouseover macros, but I certainly don't find a target, click to select them, THEN press a keyboard key to heal as some people are suggesting as the alternative!I simply have grid set up with clique so that left click on a grid unit frame is heal, right click is renew, and so on. This is how I thought Dawn was explaining her heals vs mouseovers. It appears that some commenters thought that it was a case of selecting a target by clicking on them, then pressing a keyboard key to heal them... which admittedly does seem like extra hassle than what is necessary.I generally have the boss targeted so that I can see the boss cast bar and click on grid to heal people as needed as I don't require to have a target selected to be able to heal them.However, one mouseover macro I am interested in using is one so that I can hover the mouse over a unit frame group in a raid and cast Prayer of Healing on that group rather than always defaulting to healing the 5 players from my own group. Would that work?Lastly for a question...Are there any good macros to be able to manage the chakra spells? Can I use Holy Word: Serenity as a normal macro so I can put it on a mousebind for clique? I currently select my target first, then press a keyboard key to cast Holy Word: Serenity which is a very inelegant way to casting it I admit!Alternatively, can I use a macro to always cast Holy Word: Serenity on a focus target if I have no other targets selected at that time and want to heal the tank with that spell 9/10 times?Anyway, thanks for these macros Dawn. I have never really used many in the past, but ones like the Shadowfiend one look ideal. My shadowfiend is often just hanging around after tickling a mob rather than attacking the next one, so will be good to force a bit of work out of the lazy bugger! :)

Actually, I think Dawn was referring to just that. I know a couple of healers that use Grid exclusively, but do not use Clique or anything else with it. They select their target, cast a heal, and move on. And these are excellent, accomplished healers, I might add. It works for them.

I use Vuhdo not Grid and Clique, and this forum post is about that, but I think it might be transportable to Grid/Clique. It might help you with your HW:Serenity http://www.plusheal.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=7989
