Effectiveness of a Shield Slam/Shield Charge Macro? - Glad Warrior

4 posts in this topic

G'day everyone,

 

Long time lurker, first time poster. I've been playing a Gladiator Warrior this expansion because I'm not having as much fun as I used to on Fury (or pulling good dps compared to Glad) and I'm really enjoying it.

 

One thing I've noticed and I think it's mentioned in the guide is that Shield Charge is off the GCD just like Heroic Strike. I'm finding it a bit tough to constantly be aware of my Shield Charge recharge period and using it when Shield Slam comes off CD so would a macro of the following be good to use?

 

#showtooltip Shield Slam
/cast Shield Charge
/cast Shield Slam
 
Cheers for any replies this gets, I'm interested to know if it would be good or not to use.

I'd recommend getting or making a WeakAura to show you when your Shield Charge comes off CD. You could do the same for Shield Slam's CD or one WA that shows when both are off CD at the same time. I'll leave it to Saj or Rage to comment on the macro itself.

I would recommend against macro in them together. Reason being you can generally get 2 slams in one charge, and is rather dump that rage into HS inside the charge instead of extending the charge.

Thanks for the responses guys. I'll get WeakAura since that's recommended everywhere, even in the guide.

 

I know that you can get two slams in one charge and the only time that's screwed up is right at the beginning of a fight. Otherwise with the macro I've had perfect management and saw a slight dps increase in it overall simply because it's easier to manage.

      Hey, I'm an arms DPS and I was wondering why not macro FR and Colossus smash together? 
      Since what I've gathered you always want to follow up a CS with FR. so why not? :D

      Hi guys, sorry to ask but haven't found anything similar on this forum!
      I've tried to do /startattack /cast spell macros but the autoattack only starts after the ability ends. This bothers me more than it should cause i have to right click every single target if i dont want to miss that juicy marking targets proc. So far i've tried
       
      /cast Auto Attack /startattack /cast Barrage /startattack /cast Barrage /startattack /stopcasting /cast Barrage /targetenemy /startattack /cast Barrage /startattack /cast [talent:6/1] A Murder of Crows; [talent:6/2] Barrage /startattack /cast [nochanneling] Barrage In all these cases the macro starts off with barrage and then after the channel begins autoattacking (i've verified using a swing addon i desperately tried to find).
      The same thing applies, with more consequences, with Sidewinders. Might it be cause they are "talent" spells and not normal ones? Is this a bug? How do you behave? Thank you in advance

      Hello Shamans!
      I figured I'd share this bit of info for those who don't already know about any of this.
      I've been using a mount addon for several years now called "LiteMount". It's similar to Blizzard's recently implemented "favorite" system in their mount page. However, this addon also allows you to dictate which mounts you want to use for flying, swimming, and/or running. Going a step further, it also automatically puts you in ghost wolf if you're in a scenario in which you can't mount (indoors, not standing still, etc).
      How this addon works when you have it installed and WoW loaded, you just have to type "/litemount macro", then an action button will appear on your cursor that you can place on your action bars.
      To achieve "auto" water walking, you just need to make a small tweak to the macro. Type "/macro" to get started. Next, find the macro in question and at the bottom of the macro, type "/cast Water Walking".
      What this will do is put water walking on you when you dismount. Ideally, it would be nice to put water walking on you before you mount, but if you use the ghost wolf feature in this addon, this won't be possible as they share GCDs (where mounting doesn't). So the next best thing is casting it on you as you dismount. This way you pretty much almost always have water walking on, and refreshing it on the run is as simple as changing in and out of ghost wolf :)
      Enjoy!
