in the disc macros section it lists:


#showtooltip Shadow Word: Pain

/cast [harm,nodead][@targettarget,harm,nodead][@targettargettarget,harm,nodead][@targettargettargettarget,harm,nodead][@targettargettargettargettarget,harm,nodead]Shadow Word: Pain

 

To let you just spam shadow word pain and have it change targets.

I tried it out last night in LFR and it kept applying to the same mob over and over again, in fact in 3 5 minute attempts at zul it never changed targets for me.

That's not even remotely what the macro is supposed to do.

"This macro will search for a target to apply  Shadow Word: Pain to using the target of target system. It will keep searching for through several layers of target of target until it finds something to hit."

So, once it's able to apply, that's the end of it. The point of the macro is to not have to switch off of a friendly player to apply SW:P.

As an example, if you have a healer as your target, who has a healer as their target, who has a tank as their target, who has Zul as their target, the macro will one by one go through those conditions until it gets to a condition that is met (in this specific case it would be [@targettargettargettarget,harm,nodead]). So your SW:P only changes target if the last player in that chain changes their target.

If you want to randomly hit and cycle trough enemies with a macro, you will need to tab target in your macro with  /targetenemy.

Hi,  Could you please provide the updated, working Macro in full,  its sounds like it could be really helpful.  Thanks so much,   @eutherin

The one Eutherin posted should work as intended (which is not to randomly spam SW:P but to apply it to a target of target).

If you want to semi-randomly spam SW:P, you need to either manually tab-target or use a tab-target macro like this one:

#showtooltip
/targetenemy
/cast Shadow Word: Pain
