Effectiveness of a Shield Slam/Shield Charge Macro? - Glad Warrior

4 posts in this topic

G'day everyone,


Long time lurker, first time poster. I've been playing a Gladiator Warrior this expansion because I'm not having as much fun as I used to on Fury (or pulling good dps compared to Glad) and I'm really enjoying it.


One thing I've noticed and I think it's mentioned in the guide is that Shield Charge is off the GCD just like Heroic Strike. I'm finding it a bit tough to constantly be aware of my Shield Charge recharge period and using it when Shield Slam comes off CD so would a macro of the following be good to use?


#showtooltip Shield Slam
/cast Shield Charge
/cast Shield Slam
Cheers for any replies this gets, I'm interested to know if it would be good or not to use.

I'd recommend getting or making a WeakAura to show you when your Shield Charge comes off CD. You could do the same for Shield Slam's CD or one WA that shows when both are off CD at the same time. I'll leave it to Saj or Rage to comment on the macro itself.

I would recommend against macro in them together. Reason being you can generally get 2 slams in one charge, and is rather dump that rage into HS inside the charge instead of extending the charge.

Thanks for the responses guys. I'll get WeakAura since that's recommended everywhere, even in the guide.


I know that you can get two slams in one charge and the only time that's screwed up is right at the beginning of a fight. Otherwise with the macro I've had perfect management and saw a slight dps increase in it overall simply because it's easier to manage.

      Just throwing this shower thought out there because why not.
      Would it be possible with reasonable amount of resources and time that you have available, to create couple of generic general gameplay/map guides for Heroes of the Storm? There are already a couple for other games, although mostly pretty old ones. Things like general guidelines for tanking, healing and stutter stepping as well as map guides of what heroes are which priority and how the maps play out? You already have some maps covered at the "map specific advice", but as the "new hero guide format" cuts the map specific advice part off, would adding such thing be possible. Not that I would be desperately in need of one, but if I had to guess, a lot of people would be glad to get them available.

      I am a returning player and haven't played my BM Hunter since 2011. What I liked to do when running dungeons with my guild was to make the Tank my focus, then use the following macro posted below. I know a lot has changed since 2011, but I am wondering if the macro language has evolved to the point of being able to improve the macro to only attack if the focus is actively attacking something. Could this be done, and is there any other way we can improve this macro? Thanks in Advance for any help anyone can provide!!!


      /assist focus
      /stopmacro [noharm][dead]

      Hey ho! :)
      There are two new Macros since 7.1 for Spells which you have to place with the cursor (green circle), like our Metamorphose or for example: Shaman's Healing Rain.
      The old Way:
      - Press Button
      - move green circle
      - klick to place

      NOW and much faster, there are two new ways:
      Way One - At Player:
      /cast [@player] Metamorphose
      If you Press the Button with this macro, there is NO cursor-move and NO click.
      You char will use Meta instant without moving a meter.
      This one is nice if you are staying in group of enemys and don't want to risk beeing out of range after using your Meta.

      Way Two - At Cursor:
      /cast [@cursor] Metamorphose
      BEFORE using this macro you have to place your cursor at your target/ground/...
      If you press the Meta-Button now there is no more to do. Your DH will Meta-Jump to the cursor-point. So there is NO click.
      This is a nice one to enter a fight.Here you can add something like /use Potion of the Old War or/and /use Chaosblades, too.

      I'm using both for the situations which I explained.

      Hope it will help you!
      Done my best with my english - hope you will understand!
