At the very least, is there a means of clearing the blue cursor without casting the spell or hitting esc? WoW occasionally minimizes when I hit esc too quickly (to clear my target and then to clear my spell hand), and when you combine that with the fact that I'm now having trouble getting swiftmend to cast properly (when the target has a prerequisite hot on them, even), I'm suddenly running into a lot of unneccessary deaths. =(
As for the swiftmend bug in general, I do hope it gets fixed soon, it is quite frustrating.
Is this working as intended to make people frustrated with druids and reroll monks for their leather healing needs? or is this a bug?
I only use it for upcoming group heal moments when i know i have enough time to push escape or do another cast to break that stupid invalid target crap. I used to use it as a swift mend.... imagine that.
As a separate note, I isolated the issue of my client minimizing. In order to use my mouse's extra keys in WoW, I have to change them to represent keybinds (ctrl+4, etc.). So when attempting to hit escape quickly so I can try to use swiftmend again, ctrl+esc brings up my start menu, minimizing the game. I ended up downloading a program, AutoHotKey, to disable the ctrl+esc keybind in Windows, and as long as I run the script as an administrator, I have no issues with that anymore. So at least I can waste time hitting esc repeatedly, trying to get swiftmend to go off properly without risking my game minimizing. The same would go for anybody who uses the alt key as a modifier to cast their spells; alt+esc shows the Windows desktop, so if you're hitting alt too closely to spamming esc in order to clear the swiftmend stuck in your cursor, you'll risk minimizing your game as well.
It would really be much easier to just have the spell fail from the get go if the prerequisites aren't met. I've tried to slow down my casting, but if I hit swiftmend a split second before my global cooldown resets, and even a split second or so -after- my global cooldown resets, the spell gets stored. Cue esc mashing. =(
