Balance / Moonkin Macros for Shadowlands

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! When i downloaded the recent shadowlands expansion, i noticed that my macros no longer worked =0. This is not a single target DPS  macro, this is a Help / Harm selective macro So i did some digging to find out what was goin on, An example of this would be : /cast [help] Innervate ; [harm] Entangling Roots ; Innervate.  This macro utilizes one button for a dual purpose. if i am targeted on friend i innervate them while if i and targeting a opponent it would root them in place. This structure is now broken but has also made things easier in most cases, After doing some digging i discovered some new macros and the new format. Some examples of the new way to write this would be :

/cast [help,nodead][help,nodead]innervate
/cast [harm,nodead][harm,nodead]Entangling Roots

/cast [help,nodead][help,nodead]Regrowth
/cast [harm,nodead][harm,nodead]Wrath

/cast [harm,nodead][@target,harm,nodead]Moonfire
/cast [help,nodead][@target,help,nodead]Rejuvenation

/cast [help,nodead][help,nodead]Wild Growth
/cast [harm,nodead][harm,nodead]Entangling Roots

This is what they call a fall through macro, If the first line of code is not available because of a cooldown or if the Help or Harm selection, it will fall through to the next line of code. This works especially well for balance druids, shaman, and hybrid healing classes that use a ton of buttons. You can cut the amount of keys you need press in half which saves space and prevents accidentally pressings the wrong button. I like to pair my spells by the time it takes to cast, Instant casts with instant casts. They also introduces a mouse over macro for heals and rebuffs which is really good for world PVP. One of the better macros iv'e seen is a mouse over Rebirth

 #showtooltip Rebirth
/cast [@mouseover,help]Rebirth;Rebirth

#showtooltip Remove Corruption
/cast [target=mouseover,help,nodead][target=target] Remove Corruption


If you are going to try and make your own macro, you should keep in mind

1: The Global Cool Down or GCD which is the time it takes between 2 casts and

2: Not all of your spells and trinkets share a GCD, so you are able to cast 2 or 3 spells at the exact same time as long as it doesn't share a GCD.

I hope this helps!

      According to Jeff Hamilton, Senior System Designer on Warcraft, there's almost no work being done on World of Warcraft right now.  
      Due to the ongoing lawsuit, WoW development seems to have been temporarily halted, which benefits nobody, not players, not the developers, or shareholders, according to Senior System Designer Jeff Hamilton.
      Placeholder for tweet 1419115702569472003 We are not sure at this time if this will delay Patch 9.2 or even 9.1.5, depending on what will be unveiled in the near future (likely at Gamescom).

      We've seen some crazy low boss wipes and kills, but very few on this high a level, as Club Camel have downed Sylvanas Windrunner in the Sanctum of Domination Mythic and finished the Race to World First in overall 8th place and US 3rd... with only 1 player alive! Shmeezi basically soloed the final 0.1% or so and spared the guild possibly quite a few more pulls. Congrats!

      Chica has reached level 56 without leaving Exile's Reach.
      A while ago, we covered a player that reached level 40 without leaving Exile's Reach. Although the feat is quite impressive, Chica has done the same thing and is now at level 56. 

      Chico isn't new to the game either. The player reached level 60 with their Neutral Pandaren, following in the footsteps of Doubleagent, who always reaches level cap with their Neutral Pandaren every expansion.

      Rextroy has gathered a massive army of 300 mobs and unleashed it upon the Horde!
      It's possible to recruit that many NPCs during the bonus objective "The Fallen Tree" in Ardenweald, where capture Sylvar are locked in cages. Normally, you rescue them and add one to your army, but when in a raid group, the cage will instantly reset, allowing you to keep releasing an army of Sylvar.
      The Sylvar minions come with a few limitations, though. You must remain with them in the designated quest area unless you were to finish the bonus objective. They last for 4 minutes once you free them from the cage.
      Rextroy also said the bug has been fixed by the time the video was uploaded.
