    Mouseover & Modifier macro issue

    Hey mmo-champs,

    I have a macro I'm trying to set up on my Ret Paladin, which is;

    #showtooltip
    /target [@mouseover,nomod,nodead,help]mouseover
    /use [mod:shift,@player][]Hand of Freedom

    Basically the issue is, whoever I mouseover to cast the support spell on, ends up being my target. So basically when I cast the mouseover, I lose my current enemy target which kind of defeats the purpose of the mouseover.

    Help anyone? xoxo

    [target=mouseover]

    Here is an example of one of my macro's for my Priest. Im sure there are other/better ways of doing it, but this works 100% fine for me atleast.

    #showtooltip Power Word: Shield
    /cast [mod,target=player][target=mouseover,help,nodead][help,nodead][nogroup,target=player][target=targettarget,help,nodead] Power Word: Shield
    /tar (my name)
    /cast Power word: Shield
    /targetlasttarget

    So if I dont have any friendly players (Enemy boss, for example) mouseovered, it casts it on me, if I have any friendly mouseovers at all, it casts it on them.

    It acts like a mouseover macro atleast.

    That would be because you are telling it to actually target with the /target line.

    /cast [target=mouseover] Hand if Freedom

    This will cast on your mouseover without actually swapping targets.
    Someone else will have to help you with adding in the mods as I'm not online to peek at anything I have, but that is why your current target changes.

    Thanks for that, I'll give it a shot

    Hrmm, still having some troubles. Would either of you be able to post the macro in its entirety, with the shift modifier? I get pretty flustered at macros sometimes heh

    I appreciate the input, but it's missing the shift modifier that I want to use for arena / specific targets

    Though if you want to use it as a mouseover macro but be able to use it on a targeted player as well or yourself:

    /cast [target=mouseover, help] Hand of Freedom [help] Hand of Freedom; Hand of Freedom

    I understand the basis of the mouseover macro, but is it possible to have a mouseover and shift modifier in the same macro?

    Try this:

    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /cast [mod:shift,@player][@mouseover,nodead,help][]Hand of Freedom

    Alright so, that macro works with my Hand spells, but for my Word of Glory I need to mouseover myself to be able to heal myself, if I have an enemy target selected

    Any thoughts on how to fix that?

    #showtooltip
    /cast [mod:shift,@Dolkka][@mouseover,nodead,help][]Word of Glory

    is the current macro

    I think that's the winner, just tried it out in BGs (my arena partner wasn't there) but my WoGs and FoLs casted just fine. Thanks for your help (everyone!)
