Affliction Macro

7 posts in this topic

I used to play with this macro.

/use Soulburn

/cast Soulswap

This macro instantly applied my 3 dots to my target in one GCD. With 5.1, it no longer works, /use Soulburn uses a GCD and i have to hit twice my macro for the same result.

Did you use a such kind of macro?

I use

#showtooltip Soul Swap

/stopcasting

/cast soulburn

/cast Soul Swap

so, essentially /cast instead of /use.

I'm having no such issue with a simple macro like this:

#showtooltip Soul Swap

/cast Soulburn

/cast Soul Swap

You should not be incurring a global cooldown when using Soul Burn. The stopcasting is likely a fantastic addition to avoid what happens to me occassionally where I inhale DoTs when I don't pay attention and pull DoTs off of a target instead of reapplying them all. Report this as a bug as it should not be happening.

It seems to be a macro issue.

I've read on others forums that pre 5.1 macro were not compatible and has to be recreate.

@Zagam

I don't get the point of adding /stopcasting at the beginning of the macro. What does it do ?

Moreover, i'm looking for a way, to prevent

- loosing shard if the target is out of range

- not inhale dots from my target if i have no shard left.

Any tips on that ?

I'm not sure what you mean, Zagam, I'm still getting the inhale.@ourselin: I was trying to think of a way to do this and I imagine it would have something to do with the [aura] [noaura] crap that's above my head.

Unfortunately, this still happens to me too when I'm being dumb. I'm thinking of actually ditching a macro and just doing it manually since I'm actually using soul swap more in Terrace.

Speaking of which, has anyone noticed now that you can no longer Soul Swap your dots off Lei Shi when she has her bubble up? I used to be able SS them onto one of the adds but now you have to do it BEFORE the bubbles up, which is impossible.

      Hello to All Concerned,
       
      I am new to posting topics on forums, but a veteran (since BC) in WoW. I took a break after early cata and came back in April. I will keep this short.
       
      Avg Dps (via Recount): 22-24k
      ilvl 698
       Optimized enchants toward Haste. I am utilizing PVE/PVP gear for stats.
       
      Overall, taking into concept the extra dps I could gain by using demon circ and gateway, I should not receive reports of 22k dps when I'm actually trying. I restart Recount as well as ask for others recount data and it all states the general area of 22-24k. Would someone with experienced eyes open mine.
       
      Thanks in advance
       
      S.N. Ive always wanted to be the best Warlock ever, I don't do alts because I haven't mastered my main. I feel that if I can be considered one of the top wow players I can help those who are in my position now. Make sense?

      I sometimes forget to switch seals when going from trash to a boss.
      Here are 2 macros that I found helpful:
       
       
      #showtooltip /cast [stance:1]Crusader Strike; [stance:2] Hammer of the Righteous   #showtooltip /cast [stance:1]Seal of Righteousness; [stance:2] Seal of Truth
