    Shadow Bolt/ToC macro

    Hi guys,

    I'am trying to write a macro that will bind my Synapse Springs to Touch of Chaos but I'am not sure how to write it.

    I currently have:

    #tooltip Shadow Bolt
    /cast Touch Of Chaos
    /use 10

    But that works as in function but not in look, I want Shadow bolt to appear as a Shadow Bolt icon and change to ToC when in Meta, what I have doesnt work.

    I need to use it as Shadow Bolt as well in caster form, when I hit Meta I then want it to use Synapse Springs when used, then revert back to Shadow Bolt when my Demonic Fury is used up.

    Any idea's?

    It should look like:

    #showtooltip Shadow Bolt

    Why don't you macro your Synapse Springs to Metamorphosis? Should fix the issue with the macro not working properly on SB.

    Pop Meta and have your Synapse Springs activated. As soon as you pop out of Meta you can still spam SB with one binding. There's actually no need to macro your filler.

    Thanks guys, I have for meta:

    #showtooltip Metamorphosis
    /cast Dark Soul
    /cast Metamorphosis

    I then usually cast Aura of the Elements, Doom, Chaos Wave then ToC.
    Ideally I'll use my Springs when I hit CW then straight into ToC but I wont macro it into CW because its not always up.

    The icon doesnt change with:

    #showtooltip shadow bolt
    /use [stance:1] 10
    /use shadow bolt

    Is there a way where the icon will change?

    #showtooltip Shadow bolt
    /use 10
    /cast Shadow bolt

    This one should work.

    to be honest I don't know if a macro can change its icon. If you find a way it could be great info ^_^

    If you don't bother using showtooltip then the icon changes on its own, at least in my experience

    just use #showtooltip and it will change. #showtooltip shadow bolt will only ever show shadow bolt tooltip. so use this

    #showtooltip
    /use [stance:1] 10
    /cast shadowbolt

    won't that just show the tooltip for the gloves?

    It shows the tooltip of Touch of Chaos when you are in meta.

    oh ok. in that case to get around the gloves issue yeah use #showtooltip shadowbolt

    i only suggest using #showtooltip instead because i have a lot of alt modifier macro's and #showtooltip allows the tooltip to change when i hold alt down

    Just use a modifier for it so it will pop when ur in demo form
