Single Talent Macro for Each Tier

I was working on fixing my shadowburn macro this afternoon, and decided to revisit my Talent Tier Macro's. I had found some for my other classes, but didnt find any for locks so I figured I would share them on here in case anyone was interested. 

 

These allow you to swap out your talents freely, but you don't have to drag the spell to your bars every time. It'll just change the icon and use the new talent you pick. The one issue is that the icon will only change after you use it for the first time AFTER you swap talents. 

 

To get these to work correctly, the macro name needs to match whats referenced in the macro itself.

 

MacroName: Tier2

 

#showtooltip
/use Shadowfury
/use Mortal Coil
/use Demonic Breath
/run local G=GetSpellInfo SetMacroSpell("Tier2", G"Mortal Coil" or G"Shadowfury" or "Demonic Breath")
 
MacroName: Tier3
 
#showtooltip
/use Dark Bargain
/use Sacrificial Pact
/run local G=GetSpellInfo SetMacroSpell("Tier3", G"Sacrificial Pact" or G"Dark Bargain" or "Soul Link")
 
MacroName: Tier4
 
#showtooltip
/use Burning Rush
/use Unbound Will
/use Blood Horror
/run local G=GetSpellInfo SetMacroSpell("Tier4", G"Unbound Will" or G"Burning Rush" or "Blood Horror")
 
I don't have a swappable macro for the other tiers as they either only have one active ability, or I never use anything other than one talent in that tier tongue.png
 
For Tier3, there's obivously only two active abilities, but I kept the third passive ability in the GetSpellInfo so that the icon would update if you tried to use it. I haven't used these in a while, but just after some testing they seem to be working with all of the spells. Let me know if you run into any issues or find some typos. And if anyone knows how to get the icon to update prior to hitting it for the first time, that would be much appreciated! biggrin.png

Awesome, I'll be stealing those!

 

With regard to the Tier 2 macro, I propose you add a /stopcasting clause at the top. Especially in the case of Shadowfury when you need your stuns to be on point. (Example being the first intermission on heroic garrosh).

      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!

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.
