Macro help needed

2 posts in this topic



I'm fairly new to wow and need some help with a few macros. I am trying to simplify a few abilities because I am a clicker and I am trying to make the progression towards playing with key-binds. 

Right now the macro I am working on looks like this:
#showtooltip Judgment

/castsequence [modifier: shift] Hammer of Wrath; Judgment, Avenger's Shield

The modifier works and I am able to cast Hammer of Wrath.
When I have both abilities ready (no cool-downs) I am able to spam the macro hotkey and it works as intended, uses Judgment and then uses Avenger's shield. However the problem is that sometimes I will proc the Grand Crusader passive (refresh cool-down of Avenger's Shield) and then my skill is available to use. However pressing the macro hotkey does not work unless both skills are on available...

I need a command that stops the cast sequence and restarts it after every second press.
As I am getting used to key-binds I'm trying to limit the number of keys I have to press by putting these 2 abilities into one button. Is this possible, can anyone provide any guidance please?

I would typically do one of two things. Either take hammer of wrath out of the macro so you can mod:shift avengers shield.That would look like this:



/castsequence [mod:shift] Avenger's Shield; Judgement, Avenger's Shield


That would allow you to use the cast sequence most of the time, but have the ability to use shift if you need to get to avenger's shield for a proc.


If you want to keep hammer of wrath in the macro, another thing you could try is



/castsequence reset=5 [mod:shift] Hammer of Wrath; Judgement, Avernger's Shield, Avenger's Shield


With that macro your cast sequence would be Judgement, Averger's Shield x2 (incase you get a proc), but after 5 seconds, which is 1 second before the cooldown of judgment, the macro resets and goes back to judgement. This would also allow you to keep the shift mod for hammer of wrath. If it's possible to get 3 or even 4 avenger's shield procs before a judgement then you just need to add more Avenger's shield casts to the sequence, but keep the reset=5 in there to go back to judgement on CD.


Also, I'd recommend just using #showtooltip , instead of #showtooltip <ability>. just keeping it as #showtooltip will allow it to update dynamically and show whatever ability is next up in your macro.

      Hi everyone,
      I've been playing hearthstone for a while now and my favorite deck is N'Zoth paladin. I can easily reach rank 10 with this deck but i am keeping track and i have a 100% lose rate against fast freeze mage, the deck with a lot of card draw and mostly spells. No matter how much board control or health i have, they always seem to be able to deal 30+ damage in 1 single turn at some point, and you know its going to happpen when they drop emperor thaurissan. I'm getting really annoyed and have tried things like the eater of secrets to stop them but so far i havent been able to beat a single one of them... I know warrior is a good matchup but is there really now possible way to beat them with N'Zoth paladin? I'm also having the same problem dealing with malygos/thaurissan combos...
      Hopefully someone can help me out!

      I recently switched from DK Tank to Paladin Tank (Similar stat prios) and I was wondering how much haste should I aim for and is Versatility more important than Haste like AskMrRobot says? 
      I raid twice a week but I mainly do M+ Content and I seem to be stuck at M+7 so if you have any advice there I will gladly take it. 
      Here's a link to my Paladin.
      I am in my raid spec currently and I switch my lvl 100 talent to Last Defender when I do M+.
      Any help is appreciated. :)
