Quick Mage macro help please :)

7 posts in this topic

Hey, I've seen people macro in tooltips to a say. How is this done?

 

I've gotten as far as

#showtooltip Amplify Magic

/say Casting Amplify Magic

/cast Amplify Magic

 

but in the second command how can I get the [ ] and mouseover?

 

Thank you!

I'm not really sure what you mean.

I think he wants it to say "Casting [Amplify Magic]" and have it linkable so people can click it in chat.

Ah, I see. I don't have an exact answer to this right now. I'm sure it's possible tho.

However, there is an alternative addon called RSA which does the same for any kind of spells. It will also not spam the chat window if the spell is clicked several times. You can also specify different messages for when you activate the speel and when it expires.

Yes! exactly what I want :)

 

I'll look into the addon, but as far as I can tell Amplify Magic is the only mage spell that would really require a raid notification so I would prefer to just macro it, but yes I can't seem to find the answer either so if anyone can help it would be much appreciated :)

If you are using Weakauras (which most people usually do anyway) you can check if there's such option. Like when you get Amplify Magic buff, you /s something. And when it expires you say something else :) it's worth a try as well.

I don't think anybody is going to read the tooltip during a boss encounter. I have an amplify magic macro and i just yell that during 6 seconds, all heals are enhanced. I think this is way enough :)

      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!
