A word on mouseover macros
Before we get into example macros to use, I wanted to briefly mention mouseover macros.
Mouseover macros allow you to put your mouse pointer over a person’s frame (or their character, running around), and heal them by pressing a keybind, without having to target them. Usually, you would put your mouse over the frame, left click to target the person, then click your heal, which is three steps. With mouseovers, you cut out that left-click, saving a small amount of time* every time you heal someone. *Note: this is the same amount of time required as click-casting, which is hover-click rather than hover-keypress, so mouseovers and click-casting are roughly equal in terms of time savings.
It also means that you do not need to switch targets in order to heal someone else, so you can be concentrating on a "main" healing target, while you heal other players. It also allows you to mouse over someone’s character if you see them standing in something bad, and heal them on their character, rather than on their player frame.
For serious players, is a big advantage, particularly in fast-paced healing environments.
For more information on mouseover macros and how they can help you, World of Matticus has a fantastic article, with examples – World of Matticus – A Guide to Mouseover Macros.
