I use a Logitech LX7 cordless. The only buttons that work on this mod is left and right. Is there a way i can make the wheel and other buttons set to this mod?

I have tested it through Kara and countless 5-Mans.

Now, it's possible this was changed with 2.2, or 2.3, but it wasn't any time before.
It's possible to autoscale outside of combat. In combat, it's not possible; a button can be bound to exactly one spell for any given click, and can't change spells or targets dynamically.

For some reason, while I am able to add Shaman weapon buffs as self buffs for HealBot to monitor, HealBot seems unable to detect whether those buffs are active. For example, I just got Flametoungue and it is active, but HealBot says it is missing and will re-cast it if I click my own HealBot frame.

What a load of crap! And if you use healbot yourself, I really don't understand where you ever got this idea.

Healbot doesn't auto-scale heals based on damage, because that's not possible anymore since WoW 2.x. because Blizzard made some very radical code changes to actually force people to think when they play, instead of making it easy mode! For each rank of a certain healing spell, you need to set a different key/mouse combination. It will show you the health the player has lost, but it won't adjust heals for that. So if your target has lost about 1500 health and you cast a healing spell with healbot that would normally heal for say 2500 health, then you simply overheal for 1000 health. Also when a player has lost say 2500 health and you cast a healing spell with healbot that normally heals for about 1500 health, then you simply underheal for 1000 health. So no auto-adjusting anywhere is done, and I think healbot never ever had such a feature to begin with.

I'm a little late in saying this, but this addon was mentioned to me in passing when I joined my first raid guild. I downloaded it, and fell in love from the first click-cast. Could be quite possibly the single best piece of code ever written for Warcraft.

Anyway, I'm no longer a healer, but I make it a point to mention this to every healer in my guild, because I know it helps that much.

Thanks again.

Disabling Healbot doesn't disable/hide the healbot frame

Hi, I'm using Healbot on a couple of my hybrid toons. Since they're hybrids, and I'm not always healing, I disable healbot when I'm not a, well, healbot. However, in the new version, disabling healbot will only temporarily hide the healbot frame. Soon after disabling them, they will reappear.

I've seen multiple reports of this, but even in the latest version, this bug is still there.

Try looking at the options under the "healing tab" and enable them:

=== Healing tab ===
Self: Show a bar for yourself
Group: Show bars for your group.
Tanks: Show bars for the tanks
Target: Show bars for members you target, note up to 10 raid members can be checked.
Extra: Show bars for any raid members not selected from the above, extras can be filtered on this tab.
Pets: Show bars for any pets in your party/raid
Thanks, I'd always wondered what "extra" was for!

Well I've searched and not seen anything on it. Is it true that Healbot automatically calculates the amount of health the person has when you cast a heal and downranks the heal based on that in an attempt to prevent overhealing? And if so, is there a way I can turn this off?

I've gotten some flack for using Healbot from some guild members because they feel that this is the way it works, and based on what I've seen, I'm not so inclined to disagree because they appear to be correct. We think it has actually caused some problems on major overheal fights since in the 1.5 - 2 seconds it's taking to cast the already calculated downranked heal the tank has taken a huge hit or crushing blow and the heal he got after it should have/could have been much bigger.

I'd love to continue using it, but I need to find out it this is true. Hopefully I and my guildmates are incorrect and it doesn't do this. But if it does, I'm really hoping there's an option to turn it off that I just haven't found yet. We're headed to Magtheridon for the first time tonight and I'd love to know something for sure about this before then. Hopefully someone has the answer.

I think some people are confused by the "suggested heal" box, thinking that it's going to do that when you click.

Y'know ... though it doesn't *ANYMORE*, healbot used to scale heals automatically -- and that's why it has a bad reputation. Just because they fixed it now doesn't mean that back in the day is wasn't a "noob" tool -- because it was.

This is by far the best healing addon for the weight; and it's worth it's memory usage in gold IMO. Much <3, and thanks for keeping it updated!

Strife[CUK],

Good day to you. Could we please add the ability to arange the groups as needed?

It would really help to have the Targets list amd MT targets next to each other and have them left justifed in the HB window.

Well, that's good to hear. And I can tell you exactly why I thought it - now granted I never did any extensive testing, but it seemed that on a couple different occasions that I observed, if I cast a heal at someone when they were full, I was overhealing them by significantly less than the value of what the full heal should have been, and not just a number that would have been a normal, non-crit heal. The numbers were low enough that it almost had to be a lower rank I thought. Again, no hardcore testing, just something I thought I noticed and then when people complained about it, I thought there may be something to it.

At any rate, no matter. If it is an impossible thing, then I am glad to hear it! Now I can come back to anyone wanting to argue about it and let them know they are full of it. Thanks!
it is an impossible thing during combat, out of combat the mod will cast a lower rank to conserve mana, this out of combat functionality can be switch off by turning off smartcast.

edited to add, maybe your guild mates are unhappy at your efficient healing.. i suspect some of my guild mates dislike the fact im usually the top of the effective healing and the bottom of the overhealing meters ;-)
