Nice nice, rate ups for j00.

I read the whole thing, but I'm not sure, is there a way for me to say do something on my rogue like if I'm feared, charmed, or sleeped, use will of the forsaken, and either if WotF is down OR I'm polymorphed, activate my PvP Trinket instead?



And if not, how about just one that will use my Insignia when WotF is down, and vise versa?

The short answer to both is "no, not really". The slightly longer answer I'll get to in a moment.

There's no way to use a cooldown conditional (i.e. there is no [isready] conditional) that would allow you to see if X trinket is up, if not do Y. There is also no [isfeared] conditional, for example. I need to edit in a few notes about that, now that you mention it.

You can, however, jury-rig the process by using the /castrandom command - i.e. /castrandom Insignia of the Horde, Will of the Forsaken will randomly select between the two. However, since WotF can be triggered preemptively (and it may not remove the effect you want it to) this macro is far from perfect - and if you keep hitting it the macro may well use both abilities, whether you want it to or not.

I'm not sure about the sticky part, since there have been lots of great guides first put in as posts, and Alla restricts the number of stickies per forum. I'd prefer that this be submitted to Darqflame for inclusion into the "Guides" section.

Still, a rate-up!

Nice guide.

Question - is it possible to make a macro for grinding that will Sinister Strike unless I'm at 5 combo points OR my target is under 20% health?

I asked on the Macro forum but the responses I got were useless - telling me I was trying to cheat or something :(

Also, I'm guessing that you use a Mac (I do at work). I've had problems a few times where for some reason it sees a ' as a ? ... but it only ever happened to me when I was working with Word docs.

One macro I ve been playing with for a hunter is to change aspect dependant on situation used. Eg. Aspect of hawk when using bow and aspect of monkey when in combat used to use

/cast aspect of monkey; /cast attack

/cast apsect of hawk; /cast autoshot

This used to work but now when changing aspect it activates a global cooldown on all skills. Is there away of still do this or does the global cool down mean I will have to hit the button twice?

i'm pretty sure that is exactly the type of thing the new system was designed to prevent, hence the backlash on the oboards.

Sadly, no. There is no conditioner to check for combo points, although I'm hoping that one will be added, and there's no conditioner to check for the HP of your target. (If there were, an Execute macro would be considerably more... functional).

Yep, I moved it to Textpad and it's been working fine.

Well, you can use;

/cast Aspect of the Hawk
/attack

Since the /attack should now toggle between autoshot and autoattack based upon how far you are from the target automatically. Neither attack nor autoshot should be effected by the global cooldown in any way.

Very nice!

I have a small addition for everyone who is a sad panda that decursive doesn't work anymore:

/cast [target=mouseover] Remove Lesser Curse

You can replace this with Dispel Magic of course.

How to use?
Well, you simply move your mouse over the cursed people in your raid display (standard UI, X-Perl, whatever) or avatars without clicking on them. So you don't lose your current target. Then hit the macro. If a target is not cursed, you won't cast ("Nothing to dispel"), saving you the GCD and Mana. The only strange thing is, you have to click your own avatar for it to work, mouseover seems to work differently on yourself.

This macro in action on Noth looks something like this:
Noth curses a bunch of people.
"OMG! HALP!"
You move your mouse over cursed people one by one in the raid display while hammering this macro.
Done.

(And I even capitalised this post for easy addition into your nicely layouted guide)

I am looking for a macro that uses my trinket (Gri'lek's Charm of Might) and after using it, immediatly equip a different trinket. The trinket does not put you in combat, so it should be possible to equip another trinket before the fight starts. I wonder if something like this works:
/equipslot [13] Gri'lek's Charm of Might
/stopcasting
/use Gri'lek's Charm of Might
/stopcasting
/unequipslot [13] Gri'lek's Charm of Might
/stopcasting
/equipslot [13] Hand of Justice
/stopcasting
/cast Charge

/equipslot [13] Hand of Justice
/stopcasting
/cast Charge


There is no [] around the slot number... I'll have to make that more clear in my guide. It should be;

/equipslot 13 Gri'lek's Charm of Might

But you should remember that all trinkets have a 30-second 'spin-up' time before you can use them... which means that you'd have to have the Charm of Might equipped beforehand, and have a way to swap it into that slot whenever it's around 30 seconds from being ready. (I suggest relying on Itemrack for this, since I don't know of any elegant way to do that). However... that kind of a macro _should_ work.

/use Gri'lek's Charm of Might
/equipslot 13 Hand of Justice
/cast Charge

SHOULD be all you need. Let me know how it works.

two additions:

1. the decursive macro is less automated and requires more thought. but by that, i'd say it's better than decursive, not worse. because you can choose in which order you decurse, without having to set it beforehand and by situation without it being fixed.
have two decursers in the group? one does the group, the other goes cross-raid.
you can also do things like going for healers first, instead of priests and druids (which may not be healers, i.e. shadow or feral).

2. the join battlefield as a group does not work anymore. i tried it several times but it was hotfixed out with 2.0.3 or so. whichever it was on Jan 9.

Here's a macro I like on my Priest. It can be modified for any of the single target vs. group buff users such as mages and druids.

 
#show Sacred Candle 
/cast [modifier:ctrl] Prayer of Fortitude; Power Word: Fortitude 


First, it shows the number of candles I have left on the button when you drag it to your action bars.

Second, if I hold the Ctrl key while clicking, it will cast the group buff, otherwise it will cast the single target Fortitude on my current target.



Nice writeup, rateup for RpZip!

Now here's a question.

Here's my macro:

/cast Resurrection 
/s Resurrecting %t


Very simple - start casting Res and announce who it's for. However, sometimes the Res fails, because the target is out of line of sight or out of range. So I might move a few steps and click the macro again, and to me it becomes very spammish to continue announcing when only the last time I clicked the macro did the Res actually cast.

Is there a way to stop the macro using /stopmacro [conditional] if the Res doesn't actually start?

My bandage macro. Will bandage me if I'm targeting myself, no one, or an enemy, else it will bandage my friendly target (all in 1 click).

/cast [help] Heavy Runecloth Bandage; [harm,target=player] Heavy Runecloth Bandage; [target=player] Heavy Runecloth Bandage

to spice it up, i will also try to add bloodrage into it:

/use Gri'lek's Charm of Might
/equipslot 13 Hand of Justice
/cast Charge
/stopcasting
/cast Bloodrage

this should almost give me a full rage bar when I arrive at my target. I could even add a rage potion if i feel like showing of :)

Great guide RPZip, I've been sort of experimenting with /castsequence for a bit on my paladin trying to get a great grinding macro set down.

Here's what I use and it works awesome.

/castsequence [reset=8] Seal of the Crusader; [harm] Judgement; Seal of Righteousness

Since they are all instant casts I can spam the macro until all 3 spells go off, and ensure with the "reset" that I won't ever double cast the spells within the 8 seconds limit. It works out really nicely and so far I haven't noticed a bug with it.


I had a thought though. When I'm in PvP combat on warrior, I usually just spam my macros in an attempt to do as much damage as possible within a reasonable amount of time. So would something like this work?

/cast [combat,harm,Stance:1] Overpower; [combat,harm] Execute; [combat,harm] Bloodthirst
/cast [combat,harm,Stance:1] Overpower; [combat,harm] Execute; [combat,harm] Heroic Strike


Imagine those two lines are in the same macro, would it effectively Use Overpower If it could, if not switch to Execute and then on to Bloodthirst? Or will it immediately stop at Overpower and quit the macro entirely?

Anyways, great job! Smiley: boozing

It would quit the macro entirely after the Overpower. It's basically a nested If ... then ... elseif ... else ... construct w/o all the extra keywords. As soon as one condition evaluates to true, it ends the line? Since the GCD has been invoked, the 2nd line will fail. What you need to do is just eliminate the 2nd line. Another possibility would be to change it to a /castsequence instead. The only problem (and it's not really a problem, but something to work around) is that a conditional used on the first entry applies to ALL entries on that /castsequence.

That's what i needed to know, but iirc, they took out the [else] modifiers with TBC did they not?

I'm not at home to try right now, but would this macro work then?

/castsequence [combat,harm,Stance:1,reset=1.4] Overpower; [combat,harm,Stance:3] Execute; [combat,harm] Bloodthirst; [combat,harm] Heroic Strike

Lets assume that I'm in Berserker stance (3) and the enemy has more than 20% health. Will It try to cast the first two, fail, and still move on to #3 and #4? Or will it fail and not continue?

It will fail, and not continue. /CASTSEQUENCE stays on a step until it succeeds, or gets reset. The cause for failure could be - mob health not w/in limits, insufficient mana to cast that spell, invalid target (w/o target conditionals), etc. So, in that case, it would hangup on Execute.

There is one other problem the engine would have with that macro. The
Quote:
[combat,harm,Stance:1,reset=1.4]
modifier would apply to the entire /castsequence. So, the
Quote:
[combat,harm]
and
Quote:
[combat,harm,Stance:3]
and
Quote:
[combat,harm]
might actually cause it to fail outright.

Sadly no; there are no ways to determine if the spell actually goes off or even starts casting. The best you can do is something along the order of;

/cast [help,dead] Resurrection
/stopmacro [nodead/harm]
/p Casting Resurrection on %t

Which would stop the macro if your target is dead or hostile, but it can't detect if the spell is out of range. There are mods you can use to detect the spell-cast, but nothing innate about the Macro system can do it.

Nice one, and it reminds me that I totally forgot to mention the #show commands. Will have to add those in later when I get some time.

Hmm. Well, you've reminded me that I realy need to expand the castsequence section... the reset= command is an 'idle timeout' reset. If you keep hitting the button, it keeps resetting the timer... so that macro isn't quite as foolproof as it might be otherwise. Still, if you keep cycling through it the macro should work nicely.

/cast [combat,harm,Stance:1] Overpower; [combat,harm] Execute; [combat,harm] Bloodthirst

The macro should quit after it fails the first overpower check. Another thing I didn't really explain very well - if a macro tries to cast a spell and it can't, it will just quit rather than continuing onwards and trying to cast other spells later in the macro.

hmmm... i'm 300 herbs and 300 mining. it was no prob in the old world where i had my routes and knew when to switch, but in the new zones...

so i tried

/castrandom find minerals; find herbs

/castsequence find minerals; find herbs

and neither of them worked. they both cast whichever was first, herbs or minerals, no matter how many times in a row i hit it.

EDIT: the correct version

/castsequence find minerals, find herbs

with a comma, not semicolon

Updated with new information, a modified form of Thermal's macro for three classes and some better explanations for CastSequence and CastRandom.

Quote:

1. the decursive macro is less automated and requires more thought. but by that, i'd say it's better than decursive, not worse. because you can choose in which order you decurse, without having to set it beforehand and by situation without it being fixed.


The inability to effectively use Abolish is kind of a major downside to the new macro, and you could always set up decurse orders with Decursive (admittedly before-hand, but still).

Your version of my buff macro looks pretty cool and more adaptable. I'll have to give it a whirl. And I didn't know about #showtooltip, that will be very nice to add to my macros.


Thanks for the credit, too =)

A few Shaman macros:

>>Caster Group Totems<<
/castsequence Tranquil Air Totem,Stoneskin Totem,Totem of Wrath

>>Melee Group Totems<<
/castsequence Strength of Earth Totem,Grace of Air Totem

>>Tank Group Totems<<
/castsequence Stoneskin Totem,Grace of Air Totem

Because both Healing Stream and Mana Spring only last 1 minute I believe it's wiser to use those on their own, but they can be added none-the-less.

Shaman and Druid:

>>Insta-Heal<<
/castsequence Nature's Swiftness, Healing Wave

*Replace Healing Wave with "Healing Touch" if you're a Druid.

I was just thinking "Hey, my life might be easier if I started using macros," and then I found this! Great guide, I'm full of ideas I want to try now. One question though - do you know of any command that changes the language you're speaking in chat? I'm trying to find an easier way to curse at people in Dwarvish.

Would this work for a one button SPAM Heroic Strike/Overpower/Execute? :

/cast [stance:2/3] Battle Stance
/cast Heroic Strike
/cast Overpower
/cast Execute

Awesome Guide

I'm looking ot put together a smart "Righteous Defence" macro, that would cast it on my target if it is friendly, or cast it on the target of my target if it was a hostile.

Would this work?

/cast Righteous Defence [help]
/cast Righteous Defence [hostile, target=targettarget]

I apologize if this was asked earlier, but I didn't see it.

On the subject of Focus, how useful would that be for a rogue? I'm not real sure how it works still, but it seems that you can have 2 targets... would you be able to say... keep combo points on both? Seems unlikely, but could come in handy sometimes Smiley: grin.

Posted some more paladin macro's in RPZip's thread over there. I really can't see a use for the single paladin macro up there, but maybe others can:

That should be Shadowform/Spirit Form (the 31 talent in Holy).

And if not, how about just one that will use my Insignia when WotF is down, and vise versa?


I have no idea what the cooldown on WotF is. For the sake of this example, I assume it's 2 minutes. Adjust it as neccesary:

/castsequence [reset=120] Will of the Forsaken, Insignia of the Horde

If you press it, it will WotF. If you press it again within 120 seconds, it will try to use the Insignia. If you actually can use the Insignia, it'll go back to WotF, even though it might not be off cooldown yet, but since both are on CD, it shouldn't matter.

You can replace this with Dispel Magic of course.


No, you cannot. Unlike Remove Curse, Dispel Magic can also be used to remove buffs from opponents, so you want it to remain dualfunctional. The following would work:

/cast [target=mouseover,exists] Dispel Magic; [exists] Dispel Magic; [target=focus,exists] Dispel Magic; [target=player] Dispel Magic



It checks to see if you have a unit under your mouse and dispel it. If no unit there, it'll dispel your target. If you also don't have someone targeted, it'll dispel your focus. Finally, if there's no focus, it'll dispel yourself. Note that if it comes across a unit that exists, but doesn't have anything to dispel, it does NOT move on, just give an error. However, if for some reason the target is out of range, it does seem to move on (at least, it does seem to do that on my paladin for other spells, such as Cleanse and Flash of Light.

My bandage macro. Will bandage me if I'm targeting myself, no one, or an enemy, else it will bandage my friendly target (all in 1 click).

/cast [help] Heavy Runecloth Bandage; [harm,target=player] Heavy Runecloth Bandage; [target=player] Heavy Runecloth Bandage


Needlessly long. Basically you're saying "If my target is unfriendly, I'll bandage myself, else I'll bandage myself." The following does the exact same:

/cast [help] Heavy Runecloth Bandage; [target=player] Heavy Runecloth Bandage

Note that if the target you're trying to bandage is out of range, you'll waste a bandage on yourself for some reason. Units being out of range does not break the macro, but move on to the next condition. At the moment, I have no idea if that's intended. By the way, bandages are used a lot by rogues, who do not wish to change target. They might be better off with the following macro:

/cast [target=mouseover,help] Heavy Ronecloth Bandage; [help] Heavy Runecloth Bandage; [target=player] Heavy Runecloth Bandage

Which allows you to hover your mouse over a party member's frame while pressing the macro button and bandage that player while keeping your target selected, and thus retaining your combo points.

It might even be better in this one to add the #show line to it so you can keep track of bandage count

Is it possible to make a macro that switches me out of Cat Form, then casts Healing Touch choosing a friendly target first, then falls back to myself if no friendly target exists, and then switches me back into Cat Form, or will the cooldowns trip over each other?

Also, how do you control what your focus is, outside of macro controls? This post is the first time this noob has heard of focus.

Thx for the guide, this has moved to the top of my internet fav's.
