Ofcourse they will notice, unless you are standing still (something only ranged can do) it will be quite obvious very quickly.

Oh and skillcapped, nice, but is far from flawless.

What if the OP doesnt want to become as pro as you, would appear to be? and just want a bit of fun with pvp, mouseover macros works fine i havent seen any evidence as i said earlier that supports your claim of it being really bad for people to use.
Clique does what you want.
"Druid must be boss, Hunter is just Drain-monkey.
Hunter scatter this rogue.
Hunter drain that priest.
Hunter where is frost trap. Bad Hunter! No banana!
Hunter where is flare? No flare, you get replaced by retarded warrior!"
Especially for the lock, mouseover is probably the best as I think he disabled totems from tab targeting (like i did).
And most of the time good mouseover macro's just work on your target if you're busy using mouse for steering and you don't have a mouseover.
But you are right you shouldn't be too dependant on it, it is nice to have it in addition.
I have mouseover for shocks in random bg and just a put on focus mouseover which both work on target if i don't have a mouseover.
In arena i tried having everything target arena123 but was asking to much focus remembering who is who in each game from me (we're mostly not sober >.<) so i went back to focus arena123 and just focus macro's
Personally I would go with tabbing amongst player targets only, and leaving totems/pets to be handled by mouseovers.
There are addons which will switch the behaviour back to all targets in non-pvp environments.
A mouseover allows you to dictate the target immediately while tab-targeting might take multiple attempts, and assuming the target is even in front of you at the time.
The only thing i ever use mouseover for is my tricks, and only when playing with strangers. My tricks macro is setup in such a way that it prefers a certain person first, then my target, then my focus, and if all of those are hostile/nonexistant targets it will go at my mouseover. Aka, last line of defense method on a sub-important ability.

Bind this to whatever key you want and you will be able to blind someone with just mouseovering him and pressing this button. Thats the most you can do with mouseover.
Mouseover macros are usually bad because they either require you to keep mousing over people and not running/clicking spells/whatever it's priority, and they are not controllable as focus macros are, since you can "mouseover" accidentally unwanted targets and waste cd's or the gcd, or you will either have to constantly be focused on not mouseovering people, which takes away the focus you should allocate to other stuff as well.
Only mouseover utilities i can think of that would be ok would be something spammable alot, dispels, heals or even wand shooting.
I personally macro many abilities to work as
Macro:And focus by tapping my mouse scrollCode:#showtooltip /use ability [@focus, mod:ctrl] [@mouseover] [ ]
-2. normally aka current target
Macro:How do top players do all these targeting things? I have seen bashing towards this mechanic, but not so much about better alternatives to it.Code:/focus [@mouseover, exists] [@target]
Geez I didn't expect there to be such a big discussion out of this. Anyways thanks for all the help, I am just fooling around at around 1700 rating, so I still have a lot to learn. Gladius was perfect for me, being able to just right click target and then blinding them was nice and after that sapping them with mouse click 3 without having to switch targets made life a lot eassier for me in arena and is definitely an improvement. Whether this is the best or not, I do not know, but it has definitely made me play faster and better
