Returning Player, Macro Help

3 posts in this topic

So I just got back into WoW on 12/15/2016 and I haven't played since 2011. I'm a bit confused on Macro's; as I am playing a warrior I see a few skills I want to put on a macro, but it doesn't seem to be working the way I remembered. I thought if you put procs then long cds then a basic attack, it would proc the first two if they were up, if not it would just keep regularly attacking. 

From what I remember it was

#showtooltip

/cast Victory Rush

/cast Execute

/cast Slam (or whatever basic attack)

 

 

But it just keeps trying to use victory rush, it won't go on to the next in the macro etc.

Good evening, Leodonti;

What you're looking for, specifically, is what is called a "cast sequence" macro. I personally do not use these so, aside from telling you what you're looking for, I'm not that much help.

The reason your macro is only casting Victory Rush is because 1) it's available and 2) it's on the GCD. In your macro, if Victory Rush is not available it should then cast Execute. Likewise, if neither Victory Rush nor Execute is available, it should cast Slam. The other issue is if, theoretically, all three are available the macro will only cast Victory Rush because all three spells are on the GCD and it is not a cast sequence macro.

Of what help this is, I hope it points you in the right direction. I would do research on what makes up a cast sequence macro and go from there.

I'm not sure, but i think you can not track if something is on CD an then dicide what to do...not with a macro. What Sajakain has written is absolutely true: don't put spells on GCD (Global Cool Down) in a row, that doesn't work.

In my opinion such macros leads to a bad performance. As a Prot, i don't see any usefull castsequence macro because the dicision what to hit is based on rage, cd's and situations. As a fury about the same...and arms i don't play :-). It's what Sajakain says: use tracking-addons such as WeakAuras or TellMeWhen. There also exists profiles which you can import, you just have to google them.

Hope this helps, welcome back!

      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!

      Hey, I'm an arms DPS and I was wondering why not macro FR and Colossus smash together? 
      Since what I've gathered you always want to follow up a CS with FR. so why not? :D

      Hi guys, sorry to ask but haven't found anything similar on this forum!
      I've tried to do /startattack /cast spell macros but the autoattack only starts after the ability ends. This bothers me more than it should cause i have to right click every single target if i dont want to miss that juicy marking targets proc. So far i've tried
       
      /cast Auto Attack /startattack /cast Barrage /startattack /cast Barrage /startattack /stopcasting /cast Barrage /targetenemy /startattack /cast Barrage /startattack /cast [talent:6/1] A Murder of Crows; [talent:6/2] Barrage /startattack /cast [nochanneling] Barrage In all these cases the macro starts off with barrage and then after the channel begins autoattacking (i've verified using a swing addon i desperately tried to find).
      The same thing applies, with more consequences, with Sidewinders. Might it be cause they are "talent" spells and not normal ones? Is this a bug? How do you behave? Thank you in advance
