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!

      Find out how many times you need to kill Garrosh to buy Tusks of Mannoroth and the Heirloom Weapons in MoP Remix!
      Bones of Mannoroth drops from Garrosh on Normal or higher difficulty in Siege of Orgrimmar and keep in mind all raids are on a daily lockout.
      You will receive 1 Bones of Mannoroth from killing Garrosh on Normal Difficulty. You will receive 4 Bones of Mannoroth from killing Garrosh on Heroic Difficulty. You will receive 10 Bones of Mannoroth from killing Garrosh on Mythic Difficulty. To buy Tusks of Mannoroth from Pythagorus, you must farm 38500 Bronze and 20 Bones of Mannoroth. As mentioned during soulsobreezy's interview, one Heroic clear gets you around 30,000 Bronze. You will need to kill Garrosh at least twice on Mythic Difficulty or 5 times on Heroic to have enough bones to buy the tusks.
      The Heirloom weapons are much cheaper, as they only cost 8,000 Bronze and 2 Bones of Mannoroth each.

      Take a look at the veggie weapons coming in the War Within expansion!
      Extra Large Leak
      This is a One-Hand Mace equipped in your main hand. The item comes from Cooking and the associated spell (Extra Large Leak) suggests you need to collect 999 Twined Herbs.

      Garlic Knots
      A garlic off-Hand to keep vampires at bay. We don't know how to obtain the item at this time.

      What do you think about the new weapons? Let us know in the comments!

      Blizzard has added a completely new category to the Great Vault in the War Within. Find out more about the updated requirements!
      While we can't bring up the UI on the Alpha, based on datamining, we were able to figure out that the PvP row has been completely removed and replaced with a World row, as indicated by the new global strings for Build 54675.
      GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_INCOMPLETE - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.|n|nThe item level of your reward will be based on your highest run this week.1 GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_COMPLETED_FIRST - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a second Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.1 GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_COMPLETED_SECOND - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a third Great Vault reward.

New World Category
      As you can see, you can complete delves or other world activities to unlock items in the new World row, which is cool for players who do not want to do Mythic+ or Raids.
      To unlock items in the new row, you must complete 3/6/12 delves or world activities. Completing world activities will be equivalent to completing a certain Tier of delves.
      To increase the reward's item level, you must complete Delves at a higher tier. We have 9 tiers in total with the last two being only for bragging rights (awarding cosmetics).
      Great Vault Requirements in the War Within
      Here are the updated requirements for the weekly chest in the War Within.
      Raids
      Defeat 2/4/6 raid bosses to unlock slots 1-3. Dungeons
      Complete 1/4/8 Heroic, Mythic, or Timewalking dungeons to unlock slots 1-3. World
      Complete 3/6/12 Delves or world activities to unlock slots 1-3.
