Requesting a Guardian Druid Macro

10 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

I need a Macro for Guardian druid Trash killing, I couldn’t find a working macro that’s good for trash killing.
I’m looking for something like, Change into bear form, Wild Charge, then Mangle, Thrash, Lecerate, use Maul only when it procs, spam Lecerate, and cast Mangle on every CD, cast Savage defense on every CD.
If anyone is good with making macros please help me out.

Thanks.

You can't make a macro like this.

 

First, a one button macro is not very entertaining, and just to have it play your class for you I would never condone.  Second, Blizzard has restrictions to their macros to disallow a 'one-button-wonder' so you're forced to actually play the game.  

 

The best someone could do is make a 'cast sqeuence' macro that does things in order, but it will never know when Mangle has proced, It won't know when Tooth and Claw has procced, and it will be stuck trying to cast Savage Defense / maul when you have no rage. Which, will end up defaulting back to a mangle even if its not off CD, when you would be wanting to press Lacerate.

 

 

No, your best option would be to make a weak aura or addon that shows what you should be pressing next and then actually use those separate keybinds.

You could create a cast sequence macro, but you cannot create a conditional where you can cast x if y happens.

 

Try playing the game, you might find it enjoyable.

Replying here: I deleted the post that was reposted,because it was just that. A repost to something we already answered.

For better or for worse, WoW doesn't have any support for the kind of "if-then-else" logic that you encounter in programming languages. You can tell it what skill(s) to cast, what order to do them in, how long to delay between them, so that you're not pressing as many different buttons, and you can still intersperse things that are off the GCD like cooldowns and interrupts. But, if such a "lazy macro" could be used in such a way that it was 100% effective and managed optimal play, or even close to it, it would be abused into oblivion. I don't need to speculate, either, because it has been tried and tried and tried and when it worked well enough, Blizzard changed the rotation so it wouldn't be as effective. You can go through all 34 specs and you will not find one that really performs well with a "lazy macro" now, because they are just fixed sequences and you can't change them up based on ability or trinket procs, abilities that disrupt your sequence, or cooldowns like Berserk that completely change your priority list.

 

There is one essential macro that you should use as a bear. It's a mouseover macro for Healing Touch, so you can drop your DoC healing procs on anyone without dropping focus on your target. It also has a string in it so that it will not accidentally drop you out of Bear Form and get you killed. I will link it in order to give proper credit:

As far as making a macro on observable procs this can not be done automatically. Which others have noted. What they failed to mention is overall on a human scale it is. And just requires conditionals.

 

For example here is a old Guardian macro I had made, which essentially gave my bear a intercept ability like a warrior. This is a old macro so it may need fixing and/or updating.

 

Macro Name : Charge

 

/tar [@mouseover,@focus]
/cancelform [nomod]
/assist [mod:shift/ctrl]
/use [form:Bear Form,mod:shift]!Bear Form;[form:Cat Form,mod:ctrl]!Cat Form
/cast [mod:shift/ctrl,harm]Wild Charge;[nomod,help]Wild Charge
 
 
Its behavior was to target a certain player and move to them if shift and control were not used. If shift or control was used to assist them and attack their target. Which technically may or may not attack whats attacking them. You could change this to examine closest target instead from that point. I just left it as is. Why? Because most people getting aggro and hit in the face tend to swap to that target naturally.
 
Also Krazyito mentioned a cast sequence. Thing to note here if you want a spell to cast on every CD and wish to spam it. then cast sequence can break. This is why if you want a simple spam happy macro and its just one or two abilities stick with /cast. Or if you wish to ease off the spam use a reset very close to Mangle, I'd say 7.
 
ie
 
/cast Mangle
/cast Savage Defense
 
or
 
/cast Mangle
/cast [nomod]Savage Defense;[mod:shift]Frenzied Regeneration
 
The reason for posting the above macro I called 'Charge' is it could be modified to doing your request. While I could do it, I feel its nice for people to do a bit of discovery on their own. Doesn't mean I can't I just feel macros are simple enough. Though if after a bit you still feel you can not, I will post a workable one for you.
 
Example of macro usage:
 
Macro to check if Bear then ignore. If not to change to Bear. Hence the use of:
/use [form:Bear Form]!Bear Form
 
For Wild Charge I would apply this to a singular /castsequence with a condition on out of combat. Why a singular cast sequence over using cast? So that you can apply a combat or no combat check to it.
 
Use a sequence for Thrash, Lacerate under nomod then apply modifier for Maul.
 
Use a basic /cast for Mangle and Savage Defense. Or a /castsequence using a reset of 7.
 
The steps may be a bit out of order, just put them in the right order when creating. This idea is entirely 'doable'. While some seem to be against one button type things, this is why macros exist. and why using them can at times become amazingly useful. And also lets not forget this is for trash stuff. It is not a boss, it is not for progress .. its trash. Odd to care that someone wants a simplistic way when doing mobs that equally do not matter.

Krazyito, Paloro,

Why are you being sanctimonious jerks?

The guy asked a question, it's frankly none of your concern how he plays the game.

Who cares if you condone it?

These forums used to be much friendlier and safer....quit being elitist jerks.

Don't be corrupted by your "power" as a moderator.

Playing the game at a high level doesn't give you the right to sneer at how others play their game. They pay their sub just the same as you.

Moderate and contribute by all means, just try not to be jerks. It poisons the community.

They both stated that what he is asking for is impossible, suggested the closest alternative, then said that this is not what they think he should do. I see no problem with that response.

I'm not trying to be a jerk. I'm helping him be a better player. Take my stance for a second. I post here, and help loads of people with how to play the class, and I put all the work in to try to show people how to look at logs and show what they should be doing differently.

Now someone comes in as basically asks "Can someone make a macro that plays the game for me so I don't have to think about anything?"

To me, it's just a bit rude, but on top of that, if such a macro even existed don't you think it would be publicly avaliable EVERYWHERE?

It's rude because this person took 0 effort to learn how to play the game, or even look up if such a macro was even possible and he just wants a macro that does it all for him with one button. He also more than likely copy and pasted the same post in multiple forums hoping to get a macro.

No, I'm not being a jerk, I'm telling him that the game doesn't play itself and you need to work at it to get anything accomplished, even if it means a little bit of reading or practicing. And hell, once he learns it he might actually find it enjoyable and want to learn more and get better.

I'm all for making macro, and I love to tinker with the coding of one and we gave him the next best solution but there really is nothing he can do to get what he wants.

If there was such a macro, we wouldn't be having this conversation because I would have linked one and I would probably use it myself since it's the easiest way to do thing, but it's impossible because blizzard wants us to play their game, not faceroll through it.

Another thing I didn't mention was he could have most of those buttons in a single macro while changing with modifier keys, but from the sounds of the original post he doesn't want to have to think about what buttons to press in one combination, just a button that does it all for him.

Anywhere you go and basically ask for a shortcut when all the information is already out there on how to do things, it's just a slap in the face to everyone who's put the time and effort to figure things out or read it themselves. Take the time to learn how to play this game we all enjoy and understand how spells and effect interact with each other.

@nekros I appreciate you to make one for him, and I could have probably made one using shift mods and such, but it simply wasn't what he asked for, which somewhat put me off. I personally have many macros that change based on some conditions (like targets or modifiers) but that all still takes some thinking effort on my part to know what it will do. (such as a mouse over healing button that also uses a damaging spell on an enemy target)

For anyone else reading this, just be specific with what you want in the realm of possibilities and I can help you with a macro.

      So, I was just wondering out of curiosity if there was a way to change the weakauras trackers for sunfire and moonfire to be based on an absolute value of the maximum time sun/moonfire lasts for rather than being based on a percentage of how long the DoT has been active on the target. Basically, doing it the normal way, if you have Nature's Balance (which you should) then using solar wrath or lunar strike will extend the duration of sunfire/moonfire, respectively. However, basically all this does to the tracker is make it decrease slightly slower each time. For the sake of convenience I'm just going to refer to it as a bar because that's what I use. I want it so that when the DoT is at its maximum possible duration, the bar is completely full, and then decrease from there. That way, it's less confusing.

      I am looking for critiques of my custom stat weights.  I want to improve it and get advice if there is a better way of calculating my numbers.  If you see basic errors with my number crunching, please let me know.
       
      Naked_Normal - 4608

      Naked_Actual_Rejuv_w/o_4.8%_Mastery - 26381.6 [Calculated by (Naked_Actual_Rejuv_with_4.8%_Mastery / 104.8%) = 27648 / 1.048 = 26,381.6]

      1421_Int_Trinket_Ticks - 6
      1421_Int_Trinket_Extra_Tick - 0
      I used a 1421 Int Trinket and ignored the crit procs.  We have 4.8% Mastery, which adds 4.8% to our healing even with no gear.  I divided by 1.048 to try to get to the base healing.
      Int_Weight = (6 x (1421_Int_Trinket_Normal - Naked_Normal) / 1.048) / 1421 [1421 in the amount of Intellect on the Trinket]
      Int_Weight = (6 x (5502-4608)/1.048) / 1421
      Int_Weight = 3.602

      1165_Mastery_Ring_Ticks - 6
      1165_Mastery_Ring_Extra_Tick - 0
      I used a 1165 Mastery and crit ring and then ignored the crit procs.
      Mastery_Weight = (6 x ((1165_Mastery_Ring_Normal - Naked_Normal) / 1.048)) / 1165 [1165 is the amount of Mastery on the Ring]
      Mastery_Weight = (6 x ((4685 - 4608) / 1.048)) / 1165
      Mastery_Weight = 0.3784

      406_Leech_Ring_Normal - 83
      406_Leech_Ring_Crit - 165
      406_Leech_Ring_Ticks - 6
      406_Leech_Ring_Extra_Tick - 0
      I used a Ring with 406 Leech, 745 Mastery and 1626 Crit.
      Leech_Weight = ((6 x 406_Leech_Ring_Normal - 745 * Mastery_Weight) / 1.048) / 406 [406 is the amount of Leech on the Ring]
      Leech_Weight = ((6 x 83 - 745 * 0.3784) / 1.048) / 406 [406 is the amount of Leech on the Ring]
      Leech_Weight = 0.5079

      945_Haste_Ring_Crit - 9216
      945_Haste_Ring_Ticks - 6
      945_Haste_Ring_Extra Tick - 1
      945_Haste_Ring_Extra_Tick_Amount - 583
      I used a Ring with 945 Haste and 1626 Crit and ignored Crit procs.
      Haste_Weight = (945_Haste_Ring_Extra_Tick_Amount / 1.048) / 945 [945 is the amount of Haste on the Ring]
      Haste_Weight = (583 / 1.048) / 945
      Haste_Weight = 0.5887

      1055_Versatility_Trinket_Ticks - 6
      1055_Versatility_Trinket_Extra_Tick - 0
      I used a Trinket with 1055 Versatility and no other stats.
      Vers_Weight = (6 x ((1055_Versatility_Trinket_Normal - Naked_Normal) / 1.048)) / 1055 [1055 is the amount of Versatility on the Trinket]
      Vers_Weight = (6 x ((4710 - 4608) / 1.048)) / 1055
      Vers_Weight = 0.5535

      UI tooltip crit percentage increase for a 6518 Critical Strike with my gear before 6% bonus is 16.30%
      Crit_w_Gear - 16.3%
      Crit_Weight = 6 x (Naked_Crit - Naked_Normal) x (16.3% / 6518) [6518 is the total amount of Crit on my gear]
      Crit_Weight = 6 x (9216 - 4608) x (0.1630 / 6518)
      Crit_Weight = 0.6597

      I am going to increase my mastery weight since I primarily use HOTs and you have a 10% Mastery bonus for every HOT you have on a target.  I am going to increase my Mastery weight arbitrarily by 25% to account for this (choose your own weight as you prefer).  
      Int_Weight = 3.602
      Mastery_Weight+25% = 0.3784 * 125% = 0.4730

      Total_Weight = 3.602 + 0.4730 + 0.5079 + 0.5887 + 0.5535 + 1.0690
      Total_Weight = 6.3848

      Int = Int_Weight / Total_Weight x 100% = 3.602 / 6.3848 x 100% = 56.41
      Mastery = Mastery_Weight+25%  / Total_Weight x 100% = 0.4730 / 6.3848 x 100% = 7.41
      Leech = Leech_Weight / Total_Weight x 100% = 0.5079 / 6.3848 x 100% = 7.95
