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.

      Personaly i no longer love warlocks.
      I dont think they are fun anymore and here are my reasons
      Why i wont play Warlock in Legion:
       
      - clumsy gameplay mechanics : which will not be changed until next major updates, if we're lucky
      - visual not being updated: aka Green Fire visuals
      - lazy talents : taking baseline spells to go in our talents, while other classes got new ones
      - unnecessary pruning : bye bye water walking warlock mount, bye bye Dark Soul
      - ramp up time : in demonology for example, you have at least 14 seconds before STARTING doing your average damage
      - aoe : Destruction was aoe king in Mop, now we have to gimp our solo damage to do aoe when others classes don't have to (hello to you fire mages)
      - RNG ressource gathering : a secondary ressource, necessary to our dps rotation tied to RNG (except for Demono)
      - RNG mastery : Chaos Bolt, Destruction's big hit spell, now hit like a wet noodle if you're not lucky
      - ZERO communication from Blizzard : many of these problems have been said since Alpha and there have been zero response or explanation from Blizzard, hence people getting the feeling their feedback goes in the trash can.
       
      So what do you guys think about warlocks in legion?
