WoW Patch 9.2: End for clique and mouseover macros - new interface features

image

With patch 9.2 of WoW Shadowlands, two new features in the standard interface will make life easier for healers in particular. Instead of having to cumbersomely cast every ability on teammates with mouseover macros or install WoW addons like Clique, click keybinds and mouseover targeting will be integrated into the standard interface.

Who needs mouseover macros?

Mouseover macros allow players to target a party member or enemy and cast an ability when the mouse cursor is over the target. This saves constant clicking around, which is especially useful for healers who need to constantly and frequently change targets. It also saves the millisecond of click time that can sometimes make the difference between virtual life and death.

Until now, players have written mouseover macros for each individual ability or used addons like Clique, which allowed abilities to be bound to the left and right mouse buttons. As wowhead's dataminers have found out, both the macros and additional addons will become obsolete thanks to two new features in the default interface.

Click Keybinds replace addons like Clique

Strings in the game files of patch 9.2 show the options for the possibility to bind abilities to mouse clicks.
