I would like to point out that the Dev's during the Guild Summit did talk about Mouseover healing and it is something that is in the works and they are planning on implementing. There is no ETA on it - but the point is that they are working on it, just be patient.

yeah, while i am not against mouseover healing there are much more pressing matters regarding healing that imo need to be addressed first before spending manpower on that.

things like UI displaying time left for buffs/debuffs as something actual easily readable.
UI displaying which debuffs are cleansable and which are not
healer imbalances
etc

This is one of those features, that should have launched with the game. Not something 6 months later, FFS its 2012 not 1998.

That's why I play Massively Solo! It is too painful to heal and that is my preferred role in a group. So I've been levelling alts waiting to see what shakes down the road. But to be honest, I'm running out of classes and I will soon be bored to tears! Too bad! This game had potential!

How it this any different than having a Razor Naga mouse with 14 additional mouse buttons? Left click on the frame, thumb button your heal. Either way, it's 1-handed healing.

The whole charm of clicking then healing is mistargeting? Really? In that case, I guess we should remove tab targeting from the game and force DPS to click on their desired target and also make them lose their target after every ability used. That would introduce the charm of mistargeting to DPS; sounds charming, right?

Lets make it so that when you click a heal it will automaticly heal the person needing it the most. Lets remove all the managing, there is no need to triage ppl, why would you ask something that hard from a player. Lets just make it more fun and make it a healingfest for everybody !!
Cause auto-targeting is really what people are asking for, amirite? Hell, I'm sure most people in support of mouseover healing would be against auto-targeting. That would be the most boring gameplay I could ever imagine...

There's no reason why click-to-cast has to be designed through macros. There could easily be a feature within the UI to toggle click-to-cast for individual abilities on the action bar, no macros required.

Yeah, I responded to an old post, but this post annoyed me each time I opened this thread.

I have NM kills on SOA and Kar...I learnt to play. I can deal with not having them but I would love Mouse Over healing.

Insisting on no mouse over healing = belongs in a museum = old healer. L2Evolve.

P.S. Healed stock in WoW for 8 years, only with MO macros when implemented but click to cast before it was (for almost a year if I recall) . I earned my stripes as an old school healer. Glad they are implementing it.

If you don't like it, turn it off...but it's not game changing to put in a mouse over macro. Anyone who says it is...needs to L2P cause if your only claim to elitism is winning the challenge fightinging with the UI...you got mad skillz brah.

You don't lose your target after every cast. You just have to select another player from your ops list or party list and cast on them if they need a heal. And when you are healing in a group you have a list of players you can click on. When you are DPS and there are 20 creatures surrounding you good luck trying to find out which one has the lowest health so you don't split the DPS. Try tab targeting players and healing at the same time.

I get that Mouse over healing would be great for healers because it makes their lives easier, but this is not a necessity. All it does it save you from clicking every 2 seconds and your finger getting burnt out from clicking so much.

Don't get me wrong this is something I would like to see down the line, but I think there are way more important things they need fix and update before they even touch on this subject.

we agree that old school healing is nostalgic and yeah, takes some skill.
we agree mouseover healing is convenient and we cut down on the number of keypresses.
we agree devs stated mouseover macros aren't real macros.

when i started healing swtor i keybound my heals. healing went like this: click the nameplate with my mouse, hit the 'E' key with my left hand.
then i bought a razor naga hex. 6 buttons under my thumb. it comes preset to num 1-6. easy right? i rebound my heals to 1-6. my healing was : left click the frames, click the side button with my thumb, or left hand E. easier?

How bad would it be if i wrote little macros like these:
button 1 macro: left click down, left click up, delay .020, keypress 1 down, keypress 1 up
