Travel Macro for Balance

8 posts in this topic

I had a similar macro using a mount pre 5.4.x since ground mounts were still the best option in some places like Silvermoon. With the new Glyph of Travel I feel like I've really perfected the macro for Balance spec. Feedback & suggestions are always appreciated
 

#showtooltip
/cast [nostance:4] Moonkin Form; [swimming, indoors] Travel Form; [noswimming, indoors] Cat Form; [outdoors] Travel Form

 

What it does(or is supposed to do) is to switch to the fastest form of travel available if used in moonkin form then switch back to moonkin form if you're in any other shapeshift form.

Well the first problem I see is the conditional [nostance:4]. It should be either [nostance] or [stance:4] (stance:4 in this case applies to if you are in moonkin form)

 

Other wise it looks ok.

[nostance:4] will work exactly as the OP intends. The rest of it can be shortened quite a bit, however, because macros prioritize spells in the order they're listed. I'd also recommend a /stopcasting, for root removal. Pretty sure that trying to move while rooted won't interrupt a cast.

 

#showtooltip

/stopcasting

/cast [nostance:4] Moonkin Form; [swimming] Travel Form; [indoors] Cat Form; Travel Form

 

You may also want to add in a mod key for Bear Form, for survivability when taking heavy, unavoidable damage.

/stopcasting

/cast [mod] Bear Form; [nostance:4] Moonkin Form; [swimming] Travel Form; [indoors] Cat Form; Travel Form

Moving while rooted (from memory) does stop casting.

What does [nostance:4] even do?

It's true if you're not in stance 4, which is Moonkin form.

Just tested it, and trying to move while rooted does interrupts casts now. Could have sworn it didn't used to, but I dunno. So /stopcasting is optional, but probably worth keeping just on general principles. Or maybe for in case a hunter pops that buff that lets you cast while moving.

I didn't really play around with my druid in WoD till now, I think I successfully updated it for WoD, sorry if this counts as necroing.

/cast [nostance:4] Moonkin Form; [swimming, indoors] Travel Form; [noswimming, indoors] Cat Form; [swimming, outdoors] Travel Form; [outdoors, combat] Travel Form; [outdoors, nocombat, flyable] Travel Form;  Swift Spectral Tiger

I hope this helps you!
