    Useful Monk Macros

    I couldn't find any active threads containing general, useful macros for our class. So thought I'd make one!

    Here's a little list of the macros I use:

    General mouse-over macro. Casts on your mouse-over target > Actual target (if no mouse-over) > Yourself (if no target at all).
    Simply replace the three 'Detox' with the spell of your choice.
    #showtooltip
    /cast [@mouseover,help][help][]Detox

    The same mouse-over with Goblin Glider on shift + (your key).
    Use /cast [nomod] Life Cocoon (if you don't want a mouse-over)
    #showtooltip Life Cocoon
    /use [mod:shift]15 ;[@mouseover,help][help][]Life Cocoon

    Mouse-over macro for Chi Burst or Chi Wave (depending on which you have). The last line will make the tooltip work for the spell you learnt.
    Replace 'MACRONAME' on the last line with the name of the macro.
    #showtooltip
    /cast [@mouseover,help][help][]Chi Burst
    /cast [@mouseover,help][help][]Chi Wave
    /run local G=GetSpellInfo SetMacroSpell("MACRONAME", G"Chi Wave"or "Chi Burst")

    Please share if you have/have come across any other!

    Edit: Removed the redundant spells. Thanks lawomous!

    These macros can be made a bit more efficient by removing the redundant spells. Example:

    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /cast [@mouseover,help][help][]Detox
    Code:
    #showtooltip Life Cocoon
    /use [mod:shift]15 ;[@mouseover,help][help][]Life Cocoon
    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /cast [@mouseover,help][help][]Chi Burst
    /cast [@mouseover,help][help][]Chi Wave
    /run local G=GetSpellInfo SetMacroSpell("MACRONAME", G"Chi Wave"or "Chi Burst")

    Didn't know that worked. But thanks!

    Updated the macros on the main post. Thanks again!

    For my Brewmaster, I use a few macros to make my life a bit easier.

    This is the macro I use for my Tier 2 Healing talents. This macro will cast both Chi Wave and Zen Sphere on myself and will cast Chi Burst on my Black Ox Statue. The last line allows me to not have to swap targets at all for using these talents. I haven't found a good way to use #showtooltip for this macro, but it doesn't bother me since I have this on a hidden action bar and I don't use Chi Wave on cooldown anyways.

    /target Black Ox Statue
    /cast Chi Burst
    /cast [@player] Chi Wave
    /cast [@player] Zen Sphere
    /targetlasttarget

    Will adding this logic to the end of my macro allow me to use #showtooltip?

    This would change the tooltip to either Chi Wave or Zen Sphere, yes. Depending on which you use.
