Hey, I've seen people macro in tooltips to a say. How is this done?

 

I've gotten as far as

#showtooltip Amplify Magic

/say Casting Amplify Magic

/cast Amplify Magic

 

but in the second command how can I get the [ ] and mouseover?

 

Thank you!

I'm not really sure what you mean.

I think he wants it to say "Casting [Amplify Magic]" and have it linkable so people can click it in chat.

Ah, I see. I don't have an exact answer to this right now. I'm sure it's possible tho.

However, there is an alternative addon called RSA which does the same for any kind of spells. It will also not spam the chat window if the spell is clicked several times. You can also specify different messages for when you activate the speel and when it expires.

Yes! exactly what I want :)

 

I'll look into the addon, but as far as I can tell Amplify Magic is the only mage spell that would really require a raid notification so I would prefer to just macro it, but yes I can't seem to find the answer either so if anyone can help it would be much appreciated :)

If you are using Weakauras (which most people usually do anyway) you can check if there's such option. Like when you get Amplify Magic buff, you /s something. And when it expires you say something else :) it's worth a try as well.

I don't think anybody is going to read the tooltip during a boss encounter. I have an amplify magic macro and i just yell that during 6 seconds, all heals are enhanced. I think this is way enough :)

      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!!!

      Grewe

      /cleartarget
      /assist focus
      /stopmacro [noharm][dead]
      /petattack
      /startattack

      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:
      #showtooltip
      /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:
      #showtooltip
      /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!
