Two macros, both alike in dignity

3 posts in this topic

Except that one works, and the other one doesn't.

 

Polymorph Macro (Works):

#show Polymorph
/clearfocus [modifier:alt]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]; [target=focus,dead]
/clearfocus [target=focus,help]
/stopcasting
/castrandom [target=focus,exists,harm] Polymorph(Turtle), Polymorph; Polymorph(Pig), Polymorph

 

 

Counterspell Macro (Doesn't)

#show Counterspell
/clearfocus [modifier:alt]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]; [target=focus,dead]
/clearfocus [target=focus,help]
/stopcasting
/cast [target=focus,exists,harm] Counterspell, Counterspell

 

 

Side by side comparison here; it's a bit wide, so I didn't want to embed the image.
 
I don’t see a bit of difference in the parlance, if you discount therandom bit of the polymorph macro, and that shit’s only there because I want pigs and turtles.
 
I have been using these macros since BC, and come WOD the counterspell one is like lolnope. I’ve taken to having to switch targets each time I need to counterspell, and that annoys me. I know that there are other macros posted on the mage page, but I want to know.... Does anybody have a clue why the counterspell macro is not working??

Theres a difference between castrandom and cast

 

Syntax:

/castrandom spell, spell

 

You separate the list of spells with a comma "," and castrandom will select one for you.

 

 

/cast [conditions]spell ; spell

 

 

";"

 

if the first condition is not met, it moves to the section after the semicolon.

 

 

Correct syntax:

/cast [target=focus,exists,harm] Counterspell; Counterspell

Oh sweet Light. Removing the second iteration of counterspell worked. Thank you.

 

I'd swear that I haven't changed the macros since I made them in bc. Did the way that macros are processed changed?

 

I did switch factions. It's entirely possible that I had to recreate them, but you'd think I'd remember having to do that.

      So I love this brawlers guild and have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge up until meatball. Now I'm just bitter. I'm a frost mage but I also tried arcane and I can't touch this guy. Ive tried any and ever strategy and buff I'm able to afford and haven't even got him under 50% yet. I'm 865 so I feel like it should be possible I didn't think my gear would be a problem until rank six honestly. So any advice or help or tips or whatever I'm desperate.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, Rogue, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
