    soulswap macro that helps when you lost track

    Happens now and then: soulswapping those good dots around like a boss on a pack of mobs/players; then you tab too fast/click wrong, get confused / eat a short cc in an rbg (or a hunter feint death, a priests goes stealth, etc), your nameplates mess up and you want to find that mob again with the good dots on it. A nifty little macro might help you out:

    Code:
    /targetlasttarget
    /cast soul swap
    /targetlasttarget
    It basically inhales the dots off your previous target without changing your current target. Haven't seen a similar macro so figured to share it.

    example:

    - you put dots on X
    - you target Y before you could inhale the dot off X (for whatever reason)
    - hit the macro, Y is still your target
    - exhale and you can keep going without losing time/getting confused

    Interesting, but I don't think it's worth a keybind. A better configuration of UI and binds would be a better solution.
    Sometimes it happens to me, I'd rather use a mouseover macro to take dots back.

    What annoys me more is when you want to use SB:SS and you had an inhaled SS and have to wait for the buff to drop or right click it.

    This macro deals with that:
    Code:
    /cancelaura soul swap
    /cast soulburn
    /cast soul swap

    You don't really need these kind of macro's on your actionbars. You can assign a keybind to a macro directly in your macros-cache file without the need to set the keybind up in the game (i.e. without the need to bind a key to an actionbar slot).

    And if you really want to min/max you could even add, it will kill the spell you have already queued up

    Code:
    /cancelqueuedspell
    /cancelaura soul swap
    /cast soulburn
    /cast soul swap

    Thanks for these. Just remember that Soul Swap needs to be two words or it won't work.
