Dec 3rd 2011 1:42PM Back in 2008, I was helping power level friends' characters in Dun Morogh. When we were finished, the mage with us created a portal back up to Ironforge. Another low-level player in the area asked if s/he could use it, so we invited him to our group. The player then proceeded to JUMP into the middle of the mage portal, over and over and over, for about 5 minutes, while all of us on ventrilo cracked up.

Increases the critical effect chance of your direct healing spells by 10%, and causes your direct heals to refresh the duration of your Renew on the target.
All direct heals refresh Renew on your target, not just Heal - all except, it seems, Holy Word: Serenity.

Sep 9th 2010 11:54PM I have been using the same mouseover healing macros since Vanilla WoW along with my ZBoard (now Steelseries) Merc gaming keyboard. Clicking on people was too slow, but I couldn't handle the normal wasd and number line configuration of a normal keyboard.
We found the Merc 4 years ago and I don't think I can play without it! The gaming pad on the left is absolutely perfect for me (and others with small fingerspans /difficulty with fat-fingering regular keyboards / losing important keys in the sea of letters /etc.)
If you're looking to move to keybinding, give the Merc a look. It comes with a great utility for remapping keys, with editable packages for many games. Hate that the "Reload" button actually replies to chat in WoW? Remap it to action button 12!
A great way to train yourself to use mouseover heals without totally screwing yourself over during the transition is to make macros that work with both playstyles. Mouseovers are built into the WoW UI.
/cast [@mouseover,exists] Heal Spell; [@target] Heal Spell
will check if you have a mouseover target first, and if it exists, will heal the mouseover (a mouseover target is any player/mob/npc that gives you a tooltip). If you don't have a mouseover target (which would be true if you were over a skill, clicking on it, or in dead air somewhere), it will heal the person you have targeted instead. (The [@target] is the default option and is unnecessary here, but included for ease of understanding.)
This allows you to train yourself to hit a key instead of moving your mouse back down to click a skill. And if you forget to hit the key and click the skill instead, no harm done. And it will also work with click on a target, press keyboard to cast (as long as you aren't hovering over someone else!)
Two weeks of using this macro setup in UBRS and I was weaned off of clicking my normal spells. I have since used /cast [@mouseover,exists] Heal; [@focus,exists] Heal; Heal macros for all my healing spells and never looked back. I can't even imagine going back to click-target, click-spell healing.
I am absolutely going to try Speedy Actions.
