Hunter Attack Macro

I tweaked my Hunter’s attack macro based on the buggy piggies. This macro lets me take “Charge” off auto-cast but still uses it at the beginning of the fight. It should also prevent my piggie from breaking my (and other people’s) traps. New macro:

/target [help] targettarget
/cast Hunter’s Mark
/petattack [target=pettarget,noexists] target
/cast [pet:Boar] Charge
/stopmacro [target=pettarget,noexists]
/petfollow

To toggle or not to toggle

From Patch 2.3.2:
# /cast will toggle spells again unless the name is prefixed with an exclamation mark, e.g. /castsequence Steady Shot, !Auto Shot

I hate to let a good option go to waste.. so I’m noodling the uses for this.

Toggle-able spells I can think of:
Auto Shot (for hunter)
[name of] Aspect (for hunter)
[animal] Form (for druid)
[name of] Aura (for paladin)
Find [some trackable group of things (Herbs, Minerals, Demons, etc)] (for anyone)
Stealth (for rogues and kitty druids)

Steady Shot + Kill Command

Fiancee asked for a macro yesterday. He noticed that Kill command doesn’t trigger the global cooldown so he wants it to try and do Kill Command whenever he hits Steady Shot. This would eliminate a button from his screen… and it would make sure that he triggered Kill Command whenever it was up.

Trinket Macros

I’m pretty sure I’ve been living under a rock.. but yesterday I -finally- figured this out.

I have several outfits that change depending on the circumstances (Outfitter does the changing). Each outfit has its own trinkets. Some of these trinkets have “Use:…” abilities and I need them to show up to remind me to use them. If I don’t see the trinket I forget to use the trinket.

Warlock Amplify Curse Macro

Amplify Curse
Instant 3 min cooldown
Increases the effect of your next Curse of Doom or Curse of Agony by 50%, or your next Curse of Exhaustion by an additional 20%. Lasts 30 sec.

I spent a lot of time playing Ette over the weekend and have really come to enjoy the Warlock class. One spell that Ette got recently was Amplify Curse. The problem I’m having with it is that I constantly forget to use it. It’s on such a long cooldown that it just slips my mind.

I had an ah-hah moment and decided to write a macro to take care of this problem. Amplify Curse doesn’t trigger the global cool down so I can trigger it and another spell in the same macro.

Warlock Banish Macro

Banish
Banishes the enemy target, preventing all action but making it invulnerable for up to 20 sec. Only one target can be banished at a time. Only works on Demons and Elementals.

Much like sheeping.. but can’t be broken by hitting the mob. In fact I’ve often banished something and then set my minion on it just to build threat on the minion. Even though the banished mob isn’t taking damage they’re still tracking threat.

Useful Pally Macros (Post BC)

I didn’t write these (though in some cases I did re-write them).

Stealth Detector:
# showtooltip Consecration
/cast [combat] Consecration; [nocombat] Consecration(Rank 1)

Pally Taunt:
# showtooltip Righteous Defense
/cast [help] Righteous Defense ; [target=targettarget] Righteous Defense

Announce Resurrection:

# showtooltip Redemption
/cast Redemption
/stopmacro [nodead]
/script local C; if(GetNumRaidMembers()>0) then C = “RAID” elseif(GetNumPartyMembers()>0) then C = “PARTY” else C = “SAY” end SendChatMessage(“Resurrecting %t.”, C)

Feed Pet

I can take no credit for this Macro. Fiancee and Storm spent about 2 hours working this up.

Feeds your pet (whichever one you currently have active) food appropriate to that pet. [...]
