Macro: Hunter Pull Shot

Fiancee is helping another player with his hunter. I promised to repost his pulling macro.

Here’s the macro I use for pulling something. Set this up in your macros with the “?” icon.

#showtooltip Distracting Shot
/clearfocus [target=focus,dead]
/clearfocus [target=focus,noexists]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]
/cast [target=focus] Distracting Shot
/stopcasting

What it does:
Show the distracting shot icon.
If my focus is dead,
or if my focus doesn’t exist,
Set me target to be my focus.
Cast distracting shot on my focus.
Then stop shotting (Ie, stop my auto-shot).

Normally you’d use this to pull something to you to put it in a freezing trap (but stop auto-shooting so you don’t break your freezing trap). This sets your target to be your focus.. so if you have the right addons (I’m thinking Quartz) setup you’ll see a timer for your trap duration.

Keep in mind that distracting shots don’t break ice traps. So if you think that the healer is getting higher than you on the trapped mob’s threat list (or if you have to feighn death) you can hit this macro again to hit your focus with another distracting shot.
