O-Wheely! - Buffs and Macros on your Mousewheel
by <Damage Inc> of (EU)Draenor - email damageinc [at] theedgeofthevoid.com
What does O-Wheely! do?
Rolling your mousewheel will intelligently buff you, your target and nearby members of your party/raid automatically.
When no buffs are needed, or in-combat, macros can be defined on mousewheelup/down.
O-Wheely reminds you about missing buffs in the standard UI error frame
(where messages like "Out of Range" and "You can't do that yet" normally appear)
so you don't forget to buff yourself, your target, your party or your raid
Camera-zoom still works too, just hold the rightmousebutton when scrolling
What Buffs does O-Wheely! remind me about/cast?
O-Wheely! remembers your last Blessing,Aura,Aspect,Mage Armor,Warlock Armor,Shaman WeaponBuffs and Rogue Poisons,
reminds you when they expire and will recast them when you roll the mousewheel
O-Wheely! checks nearby party/raid members, reminds you when they need one of your buffs and casts them when you roll the mousewheel
Group buffs are used (if you have reagents) so long as at least 4 players are in range/need the buff.
Single-target buffs are used otherwise - so no wasting reagents on latecomers/when rebuffing after deaths etc.
O-Wheely! will remember when you cast certain spells on yourself or party/raid members, will remind you when they expire and recast them when you roll the mousewheel.
Self-Buffs are remindered/recast until you cancel an active buff (even after logout)
Buffs cast on others are remindered/recast until you leave party/raid or logout.
Note: "/ow sreset" clears all situational non-self-buffs (at the request of raiders!)
Mousewheeling toggles between combat and runspeed Aspects.
Mousewheeling will enable Crusader Aura when mounted and your last Aura when dismounted.
Full details of the buffs cast for your class appears on the Interface/Options screen (/ow)
What Macros does O-Wheely! cast?
Use "/ow macro" (or Interface/Addons/O-Wheely!/Macro Configuration) to access the macro configuration screen.
There are presets available for most classes or you can enter you own macros for MouseWheelUp and MouseWheelDown.
These will be called when there are no buffs required or when you're in-combat.
If no macro is defined, the following spells will be cast in-combat.
Paladins (MouseWheelDown): Last non Crusader Aura (Self)
Hunters (MouseWheelDown): Last non-runspeed Aspect (Self)
The first time you play a character, cast your favourite buffs
(Paladin: Blessing/Aura, Hunters: Aspect, Mage: Shield, Warlock: Armor, Shaman: WeaponBuffs, Rogue: Poisons).
O-Wheely! will then reminder/recast these anytime you're not "resting" (e.g. in a city).
Q - Is this an ACE/ACE2/ACE3 Mod?
A - No - partly because I'm not familiar with ACE and partly because it wouldn't greatly benefit from ACE's framework/libraries.
It's very low-cpu and low-memory - it typically uses < 60kb memory and almost no CPU.
Q - I'd like to customise the buffs I'm giving.
A - I've tried VERY hard to make buffing so simple that no configuration is required.
If you have a suggestion as to how O-Wheely! could buff 'smarter' do please let me know.
Q - I'd rather not use Group Buffs in some situations - how can I?
A - Either carry no reagents (lol!) OR hold LeftMouseButton when scrolling to prevent any group buff being used

Credit also due to Aeldra - the author of SmartBuff - without that I'd never have been inspired to create this!

Q - (Paladins and Hunters) In combat, mousewheeldown toggles my Aura/Aspect on and off - why?
A - You entered combat with Crusader Aura/Aspect of the Cheetah/Pack so the mousewheel was setup to replace it.
I can't change this until combat ends and buffing yourself with an Aura/Aspect you already have cancels it!
Q - (Paladins and Hunters) MousewheelDown isn't removing my mount/runspeed Aura/Aspect in combat
A - If you've created a macro/chosen a preset for MouseWheelDown, that will overrides this function.
To restore it, select "Do Nothing" for MouseWheelDown.
Q - I've cancelled a situational buff but O-Wheely! keeps rebuffing me with it.
A - You need to cast and then immediately cancel a buff for O-Wheely to stop rebuffing it automatically.
Q - Why isn't Shift/Control/Alt+Mousewheeling working?
A - It's possible you have specifically bound these to other functions
To check what bindings exist ow checkbindings" - a list of any mousewheel bindings will be shown.
Shift+Mousewheel is bound BY DEFAULT to Action Bar Paging
CTRL+Mousewheel is bound BY DEFAULT to Vehicle Control in WOTLK
You can override these bindings by selecting Shift/Ctrl/Alt options on the "/ow" options screen
You do NOT need to remove the camera bindings - I override these automatically.
Q - Why don't [button:1] modifiers work in OWheely macros (/ow macro)
A - WoW discards mousebutton information when you scroll the wheel - sorry about that...
Q - I've NOT selected CTRL/ALT/SHIFT+mousewheel (/ow) but it still works when I hold CTRL and scroll the wheel - why?
A - If you have NOTHING bound to CTRL/ALT/SHIFT+Mousewheel WOW just ignores the modifier entirely.
Q - I've selected CTRL/ALT/SHIFT+mousewheel (/ow) and macros with modifiers like [mod:alt] don't work?
A - WoW discards modifiers if they're specifically bound.
To use them, uncheck CTRL/ALT/SHIFT in "/ow" and remove any keybindings shown in "/ow keybindings".
