hey guys , i am looking for a macro to help me copy dots faster , i am using at the moment :

/cast [nomod, @mouseover, exists, harm]soul swap; soul swap
/cast [mod:alt, @mouseover, exists, harm]soul swap; [mod:alt]soul swap
/tar [mod:alt]mouseover
with this macro i can copy dots to a different target without to change the main target , with 2 clicks , still on first click i cannot be with mouseover on any target .
can anyone help me to improve it or maybe have others better macros for soul swap

By "click", I really hope you don't mean you're actually clicking the ability on your bar.


I really don't understand this macro. All you have it doing is casting Soul Swap at your mouseover or on the target if you don't have a mouseover, and doing nothing at all if you have shift or control held down.


Can you be more specific what you're looking for?

Do I understand you correctly?

No mod: use soulswap on current target

alt as modifier: use soulswap on mouseover

Your original macro makes no sense trying to figure out if that's the case with mouseover all over the place. Afaik it isn't possible to soulswap twice with only one keypress, if that's something you were trying to do.

I am looking for a macro to soul swap on mouseover with a button push without to change the target


I'm assuming English isn't your first language so there might be something lost in translation here, but from what this says it sounds like you want to only use ONE key press to soulswap from one target, to another target....this cannot be done. You need at LEAST two pushes to SS from target (A) to target B This can be on one KEY, but it will still take two pushes.


Personally I don't use a macro for this, but I also don't mouse over. I hard target.


If you want to use it on mouseover then I think all you need is


/cast [target=mouseover] Soul Swap


Mouse over target (A) that has dots on it, push macro and copy DoTs.

Mouse over new target, push macro and apply DoTs.

I'm with Locky. I just hard target, but I use a focus so that I can always keep track of DoT power on that focus and start swapping from them quickly. Try this?


/cast [@focus, mod: ctrl] Soul Swap; [@mouseover, exists, harm] Soul Swap; Soul Swap


This will cast it on your focus if you hold control, or otherwise cast it on your mouseover if you have one, or simply cast it on your target as a default. None of these change your target.

Good day, have problem with one macro, first  work fine: 


/cast [@mouseover,harm,nodead][@target][spec:2] Immolate, [spec:1] Corruption

But in this: 

/cast [@mouseover,harm,nodead][@target][spec:2] Incinirate, [spec:1] Malefic Grasp


 - dont work first spell in macro (in this example not working inci, if i change order of spells  - not working grasp in affliction).

So, where i could made a mistake?

Your second macro has Incinerate not spelled correctly.  It's "Incinerate."

Sorry, i was in hurry. Problem not in spelling. First macro work, because corruption auto change on immo with respec. But same with second

/cast [spec:2,@mouseover,harm] [] Incinerate
/cast [spec:1,@mouseover,harm] [] Malefic Grasp

Another variation. First line work on target and mouseover, but second only on target. I think, where are mistake in conditions, but i cant see it ><

Darthmantis, I would advise you install an addon which changes your bars depending on which spec you play. Makes it much easier and doesn't fill up our already precious macro slots.

      A few days ago I posted a cheap priest deck. I have no idea how many actually have been interested in it but maybe we had some none registered visitors who knows. So here another deck. Again inspired by Chump but I had a similar deck before. Compared to Chumps' version I replaced 2x Twilight Summoner with 2x Spawn of N'Zoth (beause Epics are not budget :D) and I didn't want to craft Forbidden Ritual myself so I've put in 2 commons instread, Mortal Coil and Zealous Initiate.
      It's technically a Zoo but it plays differently which is a nice change to the "we know it all" stuff :)
      Total Arcane Dust Cost: 1500
      2x Flame Imp 1x Mortal Coil 2x Possessed Villager 2x Sanguine Reveler 2x Voidwalker 1x Zealous Initiate 2x Dire Wolf Alpha 2x Volatile Elemental 2x Darkshire Councilman 2x Devilsaur Egg 2x Spawn of N'Zoth 2x Unwilling Sacrifice 1x Void Terror 2x Ravenous Pterrordax 1x Cobalt Scalebane 2x Despicable Dreadlord 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAf0GBMQIxQmNrQLKywINMNkHwgi0rAL2rgKNrwLnwQKrwgK0xAKXywL3zQKmzgKJ4gIA
      This deck is basically a Zoo, you can find a well written guide here, but maybe somewhat slower and less reliable due to the fact that you need to combo with your deathrattle cards but the value you get out of them should make up for it. As with any Zoo deck you want to put early pressure on your opponent and establish board control with cheap minions and playing on curve.
      In your starting hand you want to see a couple of 1 mana minions and a 2 (and/or maybe a 3 mana cost) mana cost to put something on the board and plan for your next turns. Flame Imp is always a good choice as well as Sanguine Reveler and a 1, 2 or maybe a 3 mana deathrattle minion to combo with. Against more aggressive decks a Voidwalker could be a good choice as well, against slower decks you might consider to keep a Devilsaur Egg. To be able to play a Darkshire Councilman on turn 3 is great too.
      You have good tools to maintain board control (besides the minions you already have) like Volatile Elemental which has great synergy with your cannibal cards like Ravenous Pterrordax. Unwilling Sacrifice is a bit like Deadly Shot and needs accurate play to be not a waste but the potential value you can get out of it is great. And later in the game Despicable Dreadlord helps a lot to maintain board control.
      Have fun :)

      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration

      Hi I'm looking for an active raid guild. I am not a hardcore raider but would like to continue with normal/ heroic progression. 
      I'm looking for raid time around 6pm PST / 9pm EST start. Will consider faction change for the right fit. 

      9/9 Normal 9/9 Heroic - Multiple kills

      Hey guys,
      I'm new to playing affliction lock and ranged DPS in general really. Can someone help me see why my DPS isn't where it should be? I've changed my stats around and have been playing with my legendaries and rotation but I can't seem to improve. If someone has some ideas it would be much appreciated.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!
