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 :

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

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

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

#showtooltip
/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!

      We're checking back in with Mythic+ and have a fresh old face back in the top 3, with two of the classic M+ specs setting up shop at the very top, and Destruction having a look in as well.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      These past 2 weeks were:

      Fortified, Spiteful, Necrotic
      Tyrannical, Inspiring, Quaking (and Encrypted)
      All Keys
      95th percentile
      While the very top remains the same as it's been for a LONG time, with Subtlety reigning over everyone, we see a big shift in No.2 with Fire returning to the top after a long absence, pushing Destruction out of the way. Survival drops 2 spots as the AoE nerf takes effect, while Windwalkers remain steady in 5th. The numbers drop off quite a bit after the top 5, and we see Frost Mage and Demonology switch spots, as well as Fury and Havoc rise up together and push Marksmanship down into the final top 10 slot. The bottom remains pretty much identical, with Rogues, Druids and Shamans clustering up together for warmth.

      All Percentiles
      Interestingly enough, Fire is actually doing worse than last time we checked in the generalist bracket, as it drops 1 spot down to 4, with Destruction taking its place in the top 3, as Subtlety and Survival stay on top. Windwalker moves up two and claims the final top 5 spot, pushing Marksmanship and Demonology down one, while the tail end of the top 10 remains the same.

      High Keys
      +15 Keys
      Old faithful, the +15 bracket is as solid as a rock and just as interesting, as you'd need a microscope to see the differences here. Within these microscopic changes, we see Survival remain on top as Windwalker takes 2nd from Subtlety, and Arcane actually moves up quite a bit and slips into the top 10.

      Mythic+15 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      +20 Keys
      Windwalkers are making some moves in the high keys, as they take 2nd from Destruction and knock Subtlety down to 4th. Fury is moving up for a change, after a long period of stagnation all over, taking 7th and replacing Demo, while Enhancement and Assassination make some serious moves up, as they round out the top 10 four spots higher than last time we checked.

      Although the vast majority of quests surrounding Calia Menethil are encrypted in Patch 9.2.5, there's one named "Eyes of the Wolf" which isn't. This post contains mild spoilers.
      "The Eyes of the Wolf" quest isn't currently encrypted on the PTR. The player must meet Calia Menethil in Brill and spy on the Forsaken because they're gathering in Tirisfal for an unknown purpose...
      Quest Objectives
      Meet Calia Menethil in Brill, Tirisfal Glades.
      Speak to Gilnean Greymage for a teleport. Quest Description
      An alarming rumor has reached me, thanks to our spies. The Forsaken are mustering in Tirisfal Glades. For what purpose, I do not know. Notably, Calia Menethil has gone there as well. We must know more of what they are up to, now that the accursed Banshee Queen no longer unites them. Go, don a disguise and see what you can discover. Observe everything. And if there is an opportunity to gain their trust and learn more, do as they ask. I eagerly await your report.
      We saw Calia Menethil beside other Horde leaders in the Shadowlands intro experience. Will Calia Menethil lead the Forsaken in Patch 9.2.5?

      The Forsaken story remains a mystery because Blizzard uses more sophisticated encryption techniques in Patch 9.2.5 that hide entire stories, maybe even an Allied Race.

      Blizzard made some changes to the new Season 4 affix in the latest Patch 9.2.5 build. In this post, we are recapping all the information available about Shrouded so far.
      The new Season 4 affix is no longer called Disguised. It was renamed to Shrouded and the placeholder description was updated to the following:
      Shrouded - Nathrezim infiltrators have disguised themselves among enemies throughout the dungeon. Cartel Ta will reward you handsomely for assisting in their capture. How Does the Season 4 Affix Work?
      At the beginning of each Mythic+ Dungeon, there is a bounty hunter NPC who offers you Critical Strike/Haste/Mastery/Versatility buffs for each dreadlords you help capture, stacking up to 20 times.
      Bounty: Critical Strike - Critical Strike increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Haste - Haste increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Mastery - Mastery increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Versatility - Versatility increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. After you make your choice, you will be granted a 2% buff to the secondary stat of your choice.
      Nathrezim Infiltrators
      Throughout the dungeons, some NPCs will have a purple aura and the Disguised debuff. These will transform into Nathrezim Infiltrators when you enter combat. Nathrezim Infiltrators replace regular trash mobs in dungeons, so this might directly affect Mythic routes.

      When the dreadlord is captured you will receive another +2% secondary stat increase (on top of what you had at the beginning, as this buff stacks up to 20. Shortly after the dreadlord is captured, you'll receive another buff which restores 6% health and mana every second for 3 seconds.
      Restoration - Restoring 6% health and mana every 1 sec. What Abilities do Nathrezim Infiltrators Use?
      Nathrezim Infiltrators will use 3 abilities. The first one is a frontal cone which reduces healing received for a short duration, the second one heals the dreadlord for a portion of the damage inflicted and the third one puts the player into a statis.
      Vampiric Claws - Strikes the target inflicting 50 Shadow damage and healing for [ 10,000% of E1 ]% of the damage dealt. (20 yd range, 3 sec cooldown, 1.5 sec cast)
      Carrion Swarm - Inflicts 35 Shadow damage to enemies in front of the dreadlord and reduces healing received by 25% for 10 sec. (100 yd range, 3 sec cooldown, 2.5 sec cast)
      Nightmare Cloud - Creates a wandering Nightmare Cloud for until cancelled. Coming into contact with a Nightmare Cloud afflicts players with [email protected] (3 sec cooldown, 2 sec cast)
      Nathrezim Infiltrators cannot be stunned or death-gripped. The spells are not interruptible.

      Oribos has been updated with portals to three locations in Patch 9.2.5 to make traveling between the dungeons in Shadowlands Season 4 more seamless.
      Season 4 dungeon rotation includes dungeons from previous expansions, which is why Blizzard added 3 new portals on the upper floor of Oribos. The portals are located between the Flight Master and the gate to Ardenweald.

      A new NPC named Ta'piks <Exotic Portals> is surrounded by 3 portals.
      The first one leads to Gorgrond, the second one to Karazhan, and the third one will port you to Mechagon.
