Hi I'm just trying to ask if there will be macros in this game. I find it terribly clunky to select a enemy target then if I need to heal someone I have to select them and lose my target then to attack once again I have to tab back to the target. the ability to use a mouseover macro would be great!

The Devs have stated many times that they are against macros in the game and have no plans to add them.

To do what you are describing, there is a mechanism called "Focus Target." It allows you to hot key to select your pre selected focus target for healing (or any buff, etc.) and then when you release the key you still have your original target selected for attacking.

They HAVE said they may do mouseover targeting in the future, but it's not in 1.2. (This is very helpful for healing in large groups.)

Macro functionality will probably always be limited compared to a game like World of Warcraft.
