Warlock Amplify Curse Macro

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.

The macro:

#show Curse of Agony
/cast Amplify Curse
/cast Curse of Agony
/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear()

Set this up and use the “?â€? icon in macros. The first line will cause the Curse of Agony icon to show up. The Second line will make it so when you mouse-over the icon the tooltip for Curse of Agnoy will show. (I’m tempted to update this so that the #show actually shows Amplify Curse just so I can see the cooldown.. but I’m not totally sold on the idea yet).

Third line casts Amplify Curse, if it’s available. If it’s not available I get a “Spell not ready” message. The fourth line allows you to jump out of the Amplify Curse cast (if that wasn’t there you’d have to click the button twice to get the macro to work). The fifth line casts Curse of Agony. The last line is supposed to suppress the “Spell not ready” message when Amplify Curse is on cooldown.

Update this same way for Curse of Exhaustion and Curse of Doom.
