There ought to be an easier macro…

So mounts changed. I noticed that even my “slow” land mounts are suddenly able to get as fast as my fastest land mount.. AND since I’d finished the “Long Strange Trip” all my flying mounts are at 310%. This gives us an interesting opportunity. I finally get to run around on whatever mount I want to fast or slow and…

Stoned

Psynister asked about cooldowns on Soulstones on twitter. Once upon a time I used Necrosis. Then it became a huge resource suck and I had to find another way to manage all the fiddly warlock things. I finally settled on using a lot of macros. I use ALOT of macros.. and they’re constantly changing as I improve them.. or change…

A beautiful macro

There’s a new tool in town. MacroExplain will puzzle apart macros and try to tell you in english what the macro is doing. Here’s my favorite macro http://www.macroexplain.com/m7 /target [help] targettarget /petattack [target=pettarget,noexists] target /cast [nochanneling] life tap(rank 1) /stopmacro [target=pettarget,noexists] /petfollow

Life Tap + Pet Attack Macro

Woot! So it turns out I can add life tap to my pet attack macro. Pet Attack: /target [help] targettarget /petattack [target=pettarget,noexists] target /cast [nochanneling] life tap(rank 1) /stopmacro [target=pettarget,noexists] /petfollow If my target is friendly to me (ie, the tank) use my target’s target and .. If I’m not currently channeling another spell, Life tap (rank 1) (because I…

Summon Random Non-Combat Pet

/run CallCompanion(“CRITTER”, random(GetNumCompanions(“CRITTER”) ) ) I didn’t write it. Sometimes good information actually -does- come from the official forums. See the official forum post for more information about “random mounts” (ie, the answer is long.. they said it well.. and i’m not going to repeat it.. except to say that the addon “livestock” looks like a very good solution).

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,…

Macro: Healthstones

[Deprecated: with the 3.0.x patch, you can only carry one healthstone. So the macro is still useful.. just not as useful as it used to be.] The following macro will allow you to have a single button for multiple healthstones. If you have all three sizes, then clicking this once will use the biggest one. Then the second click (after…

Need more RAGE^H^H^H^HMacros

So I’ve got this macro problem.. you might call it an addiction.. but that’s only if you look at it from the outside where it looks all obsessive and weird. From the insider (my view) it looks perfectly normal. Anyway.. Lilac has run out of macro slots. I know, hard to imagine.. but every single slot for a macro for…

Evolution of a Warlock Macro

So.. well.. I’m a programmer at heart. If it’s good as it is, it’d be even better if I could get a computer to do it. Last week Lilac ran Mana Tombs and I got my first taste of warlock CC. I dutifully made up a focus macro to get seduction to work. /cast [button:2, target=focus] Seduction /cast Seduction If…
