A Real Nature's Swiftness Macro!

6 posts in this topic

Thought I'd share something Williee on MMO-Champion shared in a bear thread!

#showtooltip Nature's Swiftness

/run SetCVar("autoUnshift",0)

/cast nature's swiftness

/cast healing touch

/run SetCVar("autoUnshift",1)

No shifting NS macro for bear and cats! I've also worked it into Clique. More info on:

If you want it to cast on yourself (for a bear/cat) use:

/cast [@player] Healing Touch

EDIT: This only applies if for some reason you want to cast it on yourself and are targeting a friendly unit. If you are targeting an enemy then Tova's above macro will work fine to cast on yourself. My addition to the macro will just assure it is cast on yourself =P

Good call. Just a note it's basically the same thing for my clique custom macro just [@mouseover]

Hey. It took me ages to get to this thread, and for that I apologize.

The macro seems to work fine, and changing the autoUnshift value is very clever :)

I've updated the guides with this macro now (should be up shortly). Thank you!

That's excellent. I tried a similar macro before, but I never could find a solution that didn't shift me out of cat form. Now to think about the possibilities.

I play Feral. The Feral rotation relies on Energy banking and is not GCD locked, so sparing the time to cast Healing Touch in order to boost the damage of special attacks is a good synergy. But making it work together with Nature's Swiftness is a pain, because if you have both Nature's Swiftness and Predatory Swiftness active, using Healing Touch will consume them both with no additional benefit. So it is necessary to find a dedicated spot in the rotation for Nature's Swiftness.

Any Feral that takes DoC has become accustomed to following each 5-point finisher with a Healing Touch, to use Predatory Swiftness procs to proc DoC. Given that, it seems to me the optimal use of a NS/HT combo, in order not to conflict with PS procs, would be before applying Rip and Rake. To squeeze out even more DPS, it would probably be wisest to then use Predatory Swiftness right away, use one charge of DoC on Shred, but then wait for either an Omen of Clarity proc or full energy to use the second one on Thrash for a third concurrent 50% stronger bleed.

I think that on a boss fight, the optimal opening rotation will now look like this:

Savage Roar with 0 points (requires Glyph of Savage Roar), from stealth

Ravage, from stealth

Rake

Faerie Fire (if Weakened Armor is not provided by a tank)

Tiger's Fury + Berserk + racial cooldowns + trinket

Shred to 5 combo points

Nature's Swiftness + Healing Touch macro

Consume DoC charges with:

Rip

Refresh/reapply Rake

Healing Touch (with the PS proc)

Thrash (if Berserk is still active or with Omen of Clarity proc)

Continue with normal priority list

Update: I tried this out as Feral, and if you use this macro while Predatory Swiftness is active, it will use Nature's Swiftness first, but it will not consume the Predatory Swiftness proc.

      Hi there.

      Got in Emerald Nightmare last night and downed 6/7 normal with my guardian druid
      After the raid, the other tank and the raidleader approached me saying that I wasn't playing any good, seeing as I took alot of healing and overhealing. I was never in any real danger of dying as I had top priority on ironfur and using my cooldowns wisely.
      I tried to explain that this was because of my mastery stacking, that I do take more healing and the heals done on me does more, therefore the overhealing is high because the crits are higher. 
      Is this just me being wrong, or is this me being bad?

      So I know the stat priority but ive been curious if anyone knows exactly what thresholds we should shoot for for raiding (norm and heroic at least) and where we start to see DR on stats?

      Hi guys, long time lurker, first time poster!
      As a resto druid, I'm currently sitting on - 28% Haste, 20% Crit, 11% Mastery.
      I'm reading that while crit has a higher priority than mastery, I should be using the mastery neck enchant over the other options.
      Is there an optimal ~% haste/crit/mastery - I should be aiming for? Should I pump up my mastery and lose some crit?
      I'm not a theorycrafter, I don't run simulationss, I just play my toon and hope to play it well, based on advice from people who understand it all much better than I and enjoy that side of things!
       
      Thanks 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!
