    Cancel skull banner macro?

    I am trying to do a macro to cancel skull banner because when i burst i use skull banner.

    Now if I try to safeguard to run away while my skull banner is down, during a burst, rather then drop mocking banner it will intervene my skull banner.

    So I want a macro to cancel it so that i can put my mocking banner, I tried cancel aura but since it is not a buff it doesn't work.

    I currently use

    #showtooltip Mocking Banner
    /cleartarget
    /target Mocking Banner
    /target Demoralizing Banner
    /target Skull Banner
    /cast Safeguard
    /cast Mocking Banner

    I tried /cancelaura Skull Banner just to test if that would work.That doesn't work, it is broken, if you right click the skull banner buff, like you would with any buff it doesn't work, it doesn't have an actual timer as a buff because its a banner, you have to right click the buff under your name plate. But that doesn't work as a macro.

    Banners use the totem system so yeah, cancelling the buff wouldn't despawn it. Only clicking the totem icon under the nameplate will remove it and I don't think you can do that in a macro.

    Have you considered just removing /target Skull Banner from the macro? It might be the only way.

    Its cool i figured it out myself as usual.

    #showtooltip Mocking Banner
    /cleartarget
    /click TotemFrameTotem1 RightButton
    /target Mocking Banner
    /target Demoralizing Banner
    /target Skull Banner
    /cast Safeguard
    /cast Mocking Banner

    You are all welcome

    Now for some reason that still doesn't do what i want, it remove the banner but it intervene it before doing so...

    Okay so what actually happen is it cast safeguard at the same time it remove it, it makes sense that it all does it at once. Now because the Skull banner is only an issue when I burst then I won't need to cancel my skull banner at any other time then what I burst,I simply attached the function to my burst. So it goes like this.

    Safeguard/Banner Macro:

    #showtooltip Mocking Banner
    /cleartarget
    /target Mocking Banner
    /target Demoralizing Banner
    /target Skull Banner
    /cast Safeguard
    /cast Mocking Banner

    Burst/Cancel Skull Banner

    /cast Avatar
    /cast Malevolent Gladiator's Badge of Victory
    /cast Recklessness
    /cast Skull Banner
    /click TotemFrameTotem1 RightButton

    So basically I just have to press my burst button again if I plan to get away within that 10second period where Skull Banner is down. That works very well for me.

    Why would you run away if you're setting up a burst.

    Judging from renegades last thread, this is another troll thread...nothing to see here...

    Well, just in case... you can have only one banner up, so if you use your Mocking banner, Skull banner was disappearing. Can't see the possible issue.

    Sigh, troll thread? you kidding? This is a continuation of my old thread.

    and to Espada if you are bursting which if you burst you'll have skull banner down if you try to use mocking banner it will intervene skull banner before you can put down mocking banner, thus the problem.

    It intervenes your skull banner because you have /target skull banner and you have safeguard cast before you cast mocking banner. Probably why they assume this is a troll thread. And just looked at your other thread and its probably also because you were pretty rude to everybody trying to help you and not listening to their advice.

    Because those people did not understand the issue properly so their advice were not actual advices.

    Didn't I try to help you before and tell you that you shouldnt be using /target skull banner in that macro? I don't see any situation where you will be wanting to safeguard your skull banner. Just remove it from the damn macro and perhaps make a seperate macro on a bind youll rarely ever use.

    throwing down mocking banner would override your other banner.

    Yea that's what I'll do and the reason why ill want to intervene my skull banner? Well that would be to break roots. But its gonna work better either way by just a keybind for skull banner and my alt key to intervene it.

    By itself yes, not if your macro has /target demo banner because it will intervene before u can put it down.
