PoM Macro?

9 posts in this topic

I'm using a variant of the suggested PoM/Pyro macro suggested in your guide. It doesn't seem to work... as in with a single press, it "long" casts Pyro... what am I doing wrong?

#show Pyroblast

/script UIErrorsFrame:Hide()

/console Sound_EnableSFX 0

/use Lifeblood

/cast Prescence of Mind

/console Sound_EnableSFX 1

/run UIErrorsFrame:Clear()

/script UIErrorsFrame:Show()

/cast Pyroblast

Would it make a difference if you replaced /run UIErrorsFrame:Clear() by /script UIErrorsFrame:Clear() ?

Argh, I did NOT see that, thanks for seeing it! Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to do the trick, when I invoke the macro, PoM seems to NOT get used/cast (I put it on my bar so I could see it "cooling down" and it did not) and I have the 3+ sec cast time for the Pyro.

Not terribly familiar with macro code... but maybe it's that you can't have 2 cast commands in one macro that doesn't use "/castsequence?" Or could it be some interference w/Lifeblood? This has been a long standing macro Ive used where I just inserted the cast for PoM... can the order of commands be a factor?

And thanks for all you do!

I'm not positive, but your best bet is to test for yourself. Just put POM on your bars, use Lifeblood, and see if it puts POM on a temporary CD. If so, then they will not work together in a macro, and that is your problem.

Sorry I was being lazy thinking someone could spot the issue... took some time to find out what was going on and found that with only 2 statements in the macro, cast PoM and Pyro, it does NOT work.

THEN I realized what an idiot I am... d/oh, it's spelled Presence, not Prescence!

I'm going to go rain some fire on my own head to atone!

Always. Always. ALWAYS.

Test your macros here: Fitzcairn's Macro Explain-o-matic

This site is very useful :U

However, I noticed it doesn't want to recognize the difference between /use and /cast.

Wait, not so much the DIFFERENCE, but the fact that they are one in the same. I put in a macro that has " /use [@focus] Polymorph " into it and it said it didn't recognise the ITEM.

silly little things like this don't demean its overall usefulness at all though :P

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding. We cleared through Nighthold heroic a number of months ago and need some more people in order to jump into mythic. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - MM Hunter, Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
      Contact us:
      GM: 
      Xadel#2609, Xadel (ingame)
      Council: 
      Òops#2597, Drainphase (ingame)
      Passive#2900, Malenky (ingame)
      Ohajay#2606, Draconem (ingame)
      Hjp#21650, Phynn (ingame)

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565

      Just throwing this shower thought out there because why not.
      Would it be possible with reasonable amount of resources and time that you have available, to create couple of generic general gameplay/map guides for Heroes of the Storm? There are already a couple for other games, although mostly pretty old ones. Things like general guidelines for tanking, healing and stutter stepping as well as map guides of what heroes are which priority and how the maps play out? You already have some maps covered at the "map specific advice", but as the "new hero guide format" cuts the map specific advice part off, would adding such thing be possible. Not that I would be desperately in need of one, but if I had to guess, a lot of people would be glad to get them available.

      I am a returning player and haven't played my BM Hunter since 2011. What I liked to do when running dungeons with my guild was to make the Tank my focus, then use the following macro posted below. I know a lot has changed since 2011, but I am wondering if the macro language has evolved to the point of being able to improve the macro to only attack if the focus is actively attacking something. Could this be done, and is there any other way we can improve this macro? Thanks in Advance for any help anyone can provide!!!
