Returning Player, Macro Help

Recommended Posts

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


/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!

      I'm trying to create a macro that will allow me to use Spirit Mend with the typical focus/mouseover modifiers but also allow me to use Exhilaration with a key modifier and can't seem to make all of this work together. Here's what I have but it's acting like the ALT modifier isn't even there.
      #showtooltip /cast [mod:alt][@mouseover,help,nodead][@focus,help,nodead][@player]Spirit Mend; Exhilaration Thank you in advance for any help!

      So I know there is a feature by Blizzard to use random mount fitting to the area you're in but I wanted to make myself a macro for using this feature this way.
      /cast [nomod] <random mount>
      /cast [mod:alt] Sky Golem
      So is there a line usable in macro for random mount feature? Pressing shift and clicking on the icon does not output any line, just casts a mount summon.

      Are you tired of not getting three Blizzards off during Frozen Orb? Waste too much time having to place blizzard after you activate it? Look no further! The following Macro will cast Blizzard at your cursor (Like quick cast). No targeting reticle. No worries. Enjoy.

      /cast [@cursor] Blizzard

      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]
