Looking for a panic macro

4 posts in this topic

So I'm not even sure if this can be done, but I'm looking for a macro I can one-click when I'm in panic mode, that casts Lay on Hands on whoever my Beacon of Light is cast on (nominally the tank) for when there are those spikes in damage that I struggle to keep up with.

Any thoughts?

Hmm... Personally, I don't even use Lay on Hands on the tank (who your beacon should be on). If you are having trouble keeping up with damage spikes, I think we need to discuss your way of handling the damage. Could you link your character, and tell me exactly what you do in the spiked damage situations? Thanks so much. I look forward to helping a fellow Healadin.

It's not so much an issue with the healing, I can keep up with that fine, I was just wondering whether it's possible to do, because it might be useful to have.

But okay, here's my character:

And normally I'd use Eternal Flame (assuming I have holy power charges up, which I normally do because of the Holy Radiance > Holy Shock proc rotation) and then Holy Shock. By this point if he's still not in the clear I'll throw a Flash of Light on him, but again it's not really a problem, and when it is, it's because it's LFR and people are clueless. Doesn't really happen in guild runs.

You can make two macros I suppose to do this


/focus [@mouseover]

/use [@mouseover] Beacon of Light


/use [@focus] Lay on Hands

The beacon of light macro will focus your mouse over target and use beacon on him. The LoH macro will LoH your focus.

If you do not like the mouse over part, another alternative is this:



/use Beacon of Light


On another note, IMO a mouse over macro is better for LoH over all. It will allow you to quickly use it on anyone in the raid.


/use [@mouseover] Lay on Hands

But that is just personal preference.

Edit: looking at your armory. DO NOT USE a nightmare tear in your helmet... Switch that to a +320 spirit gem or a +80 int/+160 spirit... Much more useful.

For you legs you should switch that to

    • Macros for Apex M800 Keyboard
      By Grandudius
      Hello all,
      i have just recieved the Steelseries Apex M800 Keyboard for christmas and really want to start inputting macros to really get the most out of it. However, macros are not my strongest subject when i comes to WoW... or any type of game for that matter.
      What macros do you use for your chars, and what are the most useful and/or common ones i should use/look out for?
      All help is greatly appreciated
    • X-post from WoW: Macro
      By Onile
      I spend most of my game directly targetting tank, then managing other heals with @mouseover macros.
      Sometimes though, you roll really well and your crew is so good you don't need to. In these circumstances i wanna spend most cooldowns casting denounce.
      The macro im having trouble with looks like this atm:
      #showtooltip Denounce
      /cast [@target, exist, help]target; [@target, exist, nodead, harm] Denounce
      The idea is that I can target ol tank directly, but denounce the boss at the same time.
      I also want to get it working for Fist of Justice (a standard stun) so that i can interrupt without messing everything up.
      any advice would be greatly appreciated!
    • PoM + AB Macro trouble
      By Lampie
      Hello everyone.
      I'm having a bit of trouble with the following PoM + AB macro: 
      #showtooltip Presence of Mind /cast [nochanneling] Presence of Mind /cast [nochanneling] Arcane Blast   The issue is when I spam the macro it keeps casting Arcane Blast, and I sort of have to move while spamming the macro in order to actually use Presence of Mind, and its really annoying cause sometimes I'm not able to squeeze in the last AB on my crystal due to this.    I have very little knowledge to how macro scripts etc actually work, I usually just copy paste the ones I find and use, so some help would be very much appreciated.    Kind Regards Lampie
