Clique binding configuration

Clique is a simple addon that enables powerful click-casting and hover-casting on your unit frames and in the 3D game world. You can bind virtually any mouse or keyboard combination to a spell or macro. In it's normal configuration this enables you to use the bindings over your unit frames in order to cast spells directly on that unit. This allows you to more quickly select both the spell to cast, and the target of the spell without requiring an extra click.

Bugs and Support (PLEASE READ)

Unfortunately I have been forced to disable user comments on For some absurd reason the site has stopped sending me emails when you guys post a new comment, making me completely unable to provide support via this means. I am still happy to provide assistance, both on Curseforge and Wowinterface:

To begin with Clique, open your spellbook and click on the new tab that is shown there. You can also open the configuration GUI by running the /clique slash command. From this binding interface you can add, remove and alter any of your Clique bindings. You will be unable to make these changes when you are in combat due to limitations in the Blizzard API.

Binding a spell

Binding a spell is just a matter of finding the spell in your spellbook, putting your mouse over it, and performing the binding you would like to add. For example, if you'd like to set 'Regrowth' to activate on 'Shift-LeftButton', then you just find that spell in your spellbook and then Shift-LeftClick on it. You can also bind keyboard combinations, so you could do the same with Shift-R if you'd like.

Keep in mind when you are setting your bindings that they will override any bindings that are already set on the frame, for example the default bindings to 'Target unit' and 'Show unit menu'. You can override these bindings if you would like, but you should then set a new different combination that will activate the original functions

Binding the 'Target unit' or 'Show unit menu' actions

If you've rebound or lose these default bindings, you can re-bind them using the 'Bind other' button in the Clique configuration. Click on the button, and choose the correct action and you will be presented with a dialog box that allows you to set the binding for that action. Simply choose a new key combination, and you will be able to target units and open your menu again.

Binding a macro

Binding a macro can also be found on the 'Bind other' button. You'll be given a new window with instructions and suggestions about writing your macros, but other than that the process should seem very similar.

Managing click-sets

Each binding can belong to a number of binding-sets. These sets determine when the binding is active. The built-in binding-sets are as follows:

  • default - This set is always active on registered unit frames, unless overridden by another binding-set.
  • ooc - This set is only active when you are out of combat. Once you begin fighting, these bindings will no longer be active.
  • friend - This set is only active when you are activating a binding on a friendly unit, i.e. one you can assist.
  • enemy - This set is only active when you are activating a binding on an enemy unit, i.e. one you can attack.
  • hovercast - These bindings will be available whenever you are over a unit frame, or a unit in the 3D world.
  • global - These bindings will be always available. They do not specify a target for the action, so if the action requires a target, you must specify it after performing the binding.

Clique and dual talent specs
In addition Clique allows you to set up different profiles, and can automatically switch between them when your character changes talent groups. In order to set this up, click the 'Options' button, or navigate to the Clique options section of the Interface Options menu. Here you can create new profiles and change your options to activate different profiles depending on talent spec.

    Having an issue suddenly where my hovercast spells on party and unit frames will work for the initial hover but casting a second spell triggers the key binding for the action bar, almost like it's not recognizing that i'm still hovered over the unit/raid frame. clicking off the unit/raid frame and re-hovering allows for casting a new spell but same issue happens when attempting to cast 2 consecutive spells on hover.

    I'm a very new user of Clique and I use it on my Mage so excuse me if this has been answered before.

    I am currently using it by binding some fire damage spells to left, right and middle click on my mouse. The spells are fired off when clicking on a parties target unit frame.

    This seems to work fine but I have noticed it doesn't actually "target" the enemy, that is although the spells are hitting their intended target I don't seem to be targeting the enemy or have focus. Consequently when I use a spell outside of the bindings, for example one on my actionbar, it fails because WoW complains it doesn't have a target.

    I hope this makes sense I don't know how to explain it any better. What I am really asking is how can I target the enemy and cast a spell by clicking on a party members target unit frame.

    @Squalidus: Go

    That's by design, as indicated in-game and in the documentation for the addons. Hovercast and global bindings are always active.

    i have a problem with hovercasting. If I set a spell to hovercast, say to key 1, I cannot use my normal keybind that is on my actionbar bind to 1. I am hovering no player or healtbar in that case

    nothing happens (when i ctrl+rightclick), spells do not cast, no error message or anything.

    i now started to use different profiles for different specs (instead of using multi-spec bindings), it works fine this way.

    Yes, but what doesn't work? Can you be specific?

  • Avatar of Tedinys Tedinys Aug 02, 2016 at 16:08 UTC - 0 likes

    I have still problems with multispecs. It just doesn't (always) load bindings.
    Have 2 priests using 1 profile. And particularly shared binding like:

    cast Shadow Mend, default, friend, spec1, spec3 - ctrl+rightclick
    cast Flash Heal, default, friend, spec2 - ctrl+rightclick

    seem not to work. when i change something in bindings (toggle friend off/on), it starts to work
    until i do /reload or change zones with my character.

    I have the option for clique to trigger bindings on the down portion of click, however, this is not applying to global binds. I am not sure if this is because Blizzard took out the option to have binds trigger on down stroke. Am I doing something wrong or is this a known issue? So far my friend/enemy are working as intended by triggering on down portion just not the global ones.

    I guess I am experiencing same issue with hover binds. This issue for me seems fairly recent maybe with the last update?

    For those having problems with profile switching, I have been using a temp fix. Using macros to change profiles when you change specs works until multi-spec is supported. Just add this line to macro...

    /run CliqueDB3:SetProfile("NameOfYourProfile")
