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 ho! :)
      There are two new Macros since 7.1 for Spells which you have to place with the cursor (green circle), like our Metamorphose or for example: Shaman's Healing Rain.
      The old Way:
      - Press Button
      - move green circle
      - klick to place

      NOW and much faster, there are two new ways:
       
      Way One - At Player:
      #showtooltip
      /cast [@player] Metamorphose
      If you Press the Button with this macro, there is NO cursor-move and NO click.
      You char will use Meta instant without moving a meter.
      This one is nice if you are staying in group of enemys and don't want to risk beeing out of range after using your Meta.

      Way Two - At Cursor:
      #showtooltip
      /cast [@cursor] Metamorphose
      BEFORE using this macro you have to place your cursor at your target/ground/...
      If you press the Meta-Button now there is no more to do. Your DH will Meta-Jump to the cursor-point. So there is NO click.
      This is a nice one to enter a fight.Here you can add something like /use Potion of the Old War or/and /use Chaosblades, too.

      I'm using both for the situations which I explained.

      Hope it will help you!
      Done my best with my english - hope you will understand!

      So I just got back into WoW on 12/15/2016 and I haven't played since 2011. I'm a bit confused on Macro's; as I am playing a warrior I see a few skills I want to put on a macro, but it doesn't seem to be working the way I remembered. I thought if you put procs then long cds then a basic attack, it would proc the first two if they were up, if not it would just keep regularly attacking. 
      From what I remember it was
      #showtooltip
      /cast Victory Rush
      /cast Execute
      /cast Slam (or whatever basic attack)
       
       
      But it just keeps trying to use victory rush, it won't go on to the next in the macro etc.
