Issues with Havoc/ mouseover shadowburns

Sign in to follow this

Does anyone know why havocing "current target" and mouseover shadowburning adds doesnt work? Shadowburn will only land on my mouseover target and not the one I'm attacking and havoc charges won't be used.  I just noticed it after some tests on training dummy. As long as havoc is placed on a mob that is not my current target [which I'm attacking], mouse over shadowburn works just fine. Am I missing something here?

Why do people ask for help with their macro but not post their macro? Post your macro. From what you said it's hard to understand what it is that is happening.

Thought it's a havoc issue and not a macro'd shadowburn, since shadowburn clearly lands

 

Anyway, here you go :

/use [mod:shift,@mouseover,harm,nodead,exists][mod:shift,harm]Shadowburn

For example on Norushen when an add is under 20%, I want to havoc the boss and mouseover shadowburn the add, so I dont have to switch from the boss. Shadowburn on mouseover targetted add works but havoc does NOT copy the shadowburn to the boss !

Most of the time people just write the wrong macro, so it's always something to double check.

 

 

/use [mod:shift,@mouseover,harm,nodead,exists][mod:shift,harm]Shadowburn

 

 

Used it, tested it, no fucking clue what is happening. Even tried using /cast in place of /use, tried with Immolate in place of SB. It's just not copying the spell unless I untarget the target that has havoc on it. 

 

Very weird.

 

My *guess* is that it's some kind of really weird bug. I've never heard of this happening before and I know people that use macros like this.

 

Submit a bug report and rework the way you SB targets, only idea I got.

It's actually easy to miss if you don't track your havoc stacks. Going through my logs on spoils noticed none of my havoc/ shadowburns has landed, since I always have the big adds as my primary target. checked with dummy and noticed this.

I don't use macros for stuff like this because I don't trust macros, hard targeting and focus targeting has never failed me.

This has been around since the start of 5.2.

You need to add /cleartarget and /targetlasttarget either side of you shadowburn command in the macro.

Im not home until tomorrow evening, but it was discussed in detail on mmo-c if anyone needs it before then.

Wow, Just found some of those threads on mmo. One year has passed and the issue still exists. Unfortunately, adding /cleartarget and /targetlasttarget could do more harm than resolving the issue (due to spamming keys alot)! but that's just me.

 

Thanks

I use a focus macro for havoc, on my phone atm so cannot put it up but it helps me out , but if you google it I'm sure you will find it, makes fights for me easier, and I use the shadow burn macro on icy veins, it's a god damn useful macro for grouping adds that are under 20%.

#showtooltip
/stopcasting
/cleartarget [@mouseover,harm,nodead]
/use [@mouseover,harm,nodead][] Shadowburn
/targetlasttarget [@mouseover,harm,nodead]

Above is the macro I use for Shadowburn, which works around the bug with Havoc.

It would be troublesome for me because If I cast 3x shadowburns on the mouseover target back to back without delay, havoc would only copy the first SB or miss one, Unless I put a delay between each shadowburn cast. It might have something to do with lag tolerance and ability queue or my 120ms latency. I'm not sure though. At the moment, It just feels more comfortable to just switch targets manually.

I don't see how that is any different to manually selecting the target then spamming 3 shadowburns without delay, but to each his own.

 

If you need to space out the shadowburns on a secondary target, it would be much easier to maintain the boss as your target, and weave spells in between.

 

If you switch target and cant handle 3x shadowburn back to back, you're only going to waste havoc charges by casting filler spells on the non havoc'd target, or waste time waiting for latency to catch up.

Sorry, I had to be more clear. It only happens if I put mouseover shadowburn macro in between /cleartarget and /targetlasttarget and spam it. What I'm doing right now is :

 

 

Manually switching

 

- Have the boss as my focus. (eventhough he's already my target)

- Switch to the add while casting filler spells (i.e incenirate)

- Havoc the focus target (the boss) ( /cast [@mouseover,harm,exists][@focus, harm, exists][harm] Havoc) +  3x [normal]Shadowburns

 

This way I have time to switch to the other target while I'm GCD locked.

 

 

Or

 

- Havoc a random add [Galakras adds] or Boss that is not my current target ( /cast [@mouseover,harm][@focus, harm, exists][] Havoc)

- Mouseover another add/boss and 3x [macro'd mouseover] Shadowburns without delay

      So, i've been struggling with the new Demonic T21 build. I engage with Fel Rush, then Nemesis + Fury of the Illidari, then Demon Bite until i can Eye Beam, then i Meta and spam Chaos Strike until i run out of fury, Eye Beam again and keep spamming Chaos Strike. Problem is, doesn't seem to be working, my dps was about 1,6M on vari, but my SimDPS for this build is over 1,9M.

      Here's a link to my sim: https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/rdFZs5SrR7yabbQ4mAMRBf

      When i use T20 build, i hit about 1,8M, close to my SimDPS for that build, without any problems at all. So, i need someone to shed me some light on this matter xP

      Hi all, new here and just returning to WoW. I haven't played hardcore since vanilla so a lot of this info is new to me and some I don't fully understand. 
      I've been back for about 3 weeks. My iLvl is around 930 (the items listed may not be 100% updated as I am working on enchants and such as we speak but this gets you pretty close to where I'm at!), but I am continually Fury starved. I JUST ran my first clear of Antorus tonight, got zero set pieces and have ran LFR twice and also received zero set pieces. 
      I am sure my logs are trash (don't even know how to get them and actually apply the knowledge though). So is my DPS (imo anyhow). But not much I can do when I have such a hard time with Fury. I posted on the Blizz forums and got some responses telling me to get set pieces and such but short of that I think my haste is a horrible issue (11.5%). I just got the leggie ring for completing Antorus and it's a significant upgrade to one of my current rings. But since I am at 40% crit, 11.5% Haste and 38% mastery, should I socket that ring with Haste and maybe even enchant it with haste rather than crit? I know crit is the heaviest weighted stat for us (I also have a 200 agi gem in my chest which I didn't know what to get at the time so I could also switch that agi out to a 200 haste gem, so I would end up with 200 haste from chest, 400 haste from ring) but I am trying to find a happy medium to generate Fury more consistently and still crit for my Chaos Strike.
      At this point, I really don't know what to do to improve it, other than get more/better gear. Another issue with that is, just coming back I am rusty and without good gear I'm not gonna be able to get a regular guild that can run this stuff. So, it's kind of a chicken vs the egg issue. Are there any ideas/suggestions you guys can share with me?
      Any info is much appreciated. Thanks and take care all!

      Hey, so I could really use some help with this, I'm lost trying to understand the logs and I feel like there's a lot of stuff I could improve on. Any tips or pointers at all would be really appreciated. I hope this log is of a usable kind: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/kLr8fqPD9HcyTxJF

      (Mine is Qraul, the only DH in the group.)
      And really, if anyone would be kind enough to bother, I could really use a "teach a man to fish" scenario here, if you'll pardon the analogy. I've been meaning to learn to interpret and improve from logs but it has seemed like a kind of daunting thing to deal with.

      According to Kib in the Netherlight Crucible Relic Path review, the key trait to seek is CRITICAL CHAOS. Upon reading this review I saw that my 2 Fel and 1 Shadow relics - all lvl 920 Relics - led to a trait tree with NO good traits. Every trait on my tree was in the "BAD" or useless categories. So on a whim I exchanged 1 fel and 1 shadow relic for a 910 Fel and 915 Shadow relic.  That change gave me trait trees with Critical Chaos and Infusion of LIght (twice on tier 2) with Critical Chaos tier 3 and a Wide Eyes.  - but the DPS on my Twinblades went down. 
       
      So the question is: Which is more important?  
      1 the lvl of the Relic or the traits in the tree?  The provided link below has more detail with pictures describing the tree and the changes 
      http://tuathawow.blogspot.com/2017/11/netherlight-confusion.html
      Now I am confused - and it may be my 72 years of age - but I don't see any indication about what is more important. If I happen to get a higher level Fel or Shadow Relic should I change it out? When changing relics it re-rolls the the tier tree choices so I may end up with traits in the BAD or useless categories. By changing to lower lvl relics I got the "Best" or "Good" traits instead of the "BAD" or useless original traits but the DPS went down due to the lower lvl of the replaced relics.

      I have a low DPS and I'm not sure what the best build is for general questing. I get hit hard by enemies and die quite a bit especially when I get attacked by a mob. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
