    Can someone help me with this macro?

    I currently have

    /target focus
    /castsequence reset=59 Redirect, Kidney Shot
    /stopwatch 24
    /stopwatch play

    But i'm running out of keybinds. I was wondering if it was possible to cast redirect kidneyshot on my target ifI have no focus.

    Thank you!

    That one actually didn't work. It redirects but doesn't cast Kidney Shot.

    any other tips?

    I may as well post my question in this topic too.
    Does anyone know of a macro for Lay on Hands, so that it wont cast if the target is dead? I'm getting very frustrated that when I'm using it on someone with say 5% - They infact die, and I waste the LoH on myself.

    Would it be something like: /cast [exists,friendly,nodead][] Lay on Hands

    First line is optional.
    Code:
    /tar [@focus,harm,nodead]
    /castsequence [@focus,harm,nodead][]reset=59 Redirect,Kidney Shot
    /sw 24
    /sw play

    Edited: Tested and both macros works as intended. As stated, the first line (target) is not necessary is you are using the using misdirect/kidney for cc purpose in arenas unless you are using to swap targets. I have also tested the second macro on Druid, Paladin, Priest, and Shaman healer using different spells and it does not cast if I do not have anyone targeted/or target is dead with Auto-Self Cast enabled. Test them for yourselves.

    Pretty sure a simple [@target] will do.

    that's not going to stop it from casting on him if the target is dead

    You don't have to use @target. The game assumes target if nothing is specified (Hence why [] just defaults to cast at the current target)

    /use [nodead]Lay on Hands

    or if you want to be more specific:

    /use [help,nodead]Lay on Hands

    /use [help,nodead]Lay on Hands
    no [] assumes true statement
    meaning if you have self cast enabled (as most do) it can cast on you if your target is dead / an enemy which he didn't want [@target] ensures he wont accidentally cast on himself

    Writing [help,nodead] is the same as writing [@target,help,nodead]
    target is implied as default.
    It's the same as what you wrote but writing help prevents from getting "You have no target" error when you don't have anything targetted (since help implies existence), and nodead helps prevent getting stuck with a glowy blue hand and an error message if target dies mid cast.
    But [] wouldn't work if he has auto self cast enabled, true, even if @target is implied, as it would default to player.

  11. #11
    As soon as any target-related conditionals such as [help] or [nodead] are specified, an implicit [@target] is assumed. The empty brackets don't specify any target-related conditionals, the same as [actionbar:x], [form:x], [spec:x] etc., which will all cast with default options.

    Replace first line with:
    Code:
    /tar [@focus,exists]focus
    Sorry about the derail.

    But you did get it answered. Newbie gave you the macro:

    /tar [@focus,exists,harm]
    /castsequence [@focus,exists,harm][]reset=59 Redirect,Kidney Shot
    /sw 24
    /sw play

    which should have worked.

    I'm fairly certain that /target doesn't abide targeting conditionals.

    Hum...the targetting portion should work. It's not checking conditions on one target and then targetting another. It's checking existing of hostile focus and then targetting the focus it if it exists.

    Interesting, I didn't know that.
