    Ground mount + Flying Mount in 1 macro.

    I use to have a macro that would automatically pick what mount I could use at the time. Ie in BGs it would get a groundmount and anywhere were I could fly the flying mount was selected instead.

    Does anyone rememberthis macro?

    I searched the WoW wiki macro page for mounts and its not there :/

    #showtooltip (whatever)
    /cast (linked FLYING mount)
    /cast (linked GROUND mount)

    In that order. It will cast the flying mount and if you can't use a flying mount, it will cast the ground mount. I even have the seahorse as the first line in mine.

    There's also an addon called GoGoMount that does the same thing, with a very robust set of options, and you can keybind it without using up an actionbar spot.

    /cast flyingmount
    /cast[mod:whatever] ground mount

    whatever = shift, alt, ctrl, ect ect ect
    Used to be:
    (---melee---)(--frost mages--)(---------------ranged---------------)
    Now:
    (---melee---)(----corpses-----)(---------------ranged---------------)
    Frost Nova me now. I dare you.

    I doubt that macro would actually work, because for a long time now, a failed /cast would cause a macro to cease executing.

    I use the addon, GupPet. It will automatically cast a random flying mount (you can customize which ones you want to use in the options menu for the addon). If you are in a place you can't use a flying mount, it will cast a ground mount (or you can shift + click the addon button to force a ground mount selection). It will also cast an aquatic mount if you are in the water.

    http://www.wowwiki.com/Mount_macros has some great macros to use for your Mounts.

    I use a really simple one:

    /console Sound_EnableSFX 0
    /cast [nomounted] Abyssal Seahorse()
    /cast [nomounted] Purple Riding Nether Ray()
    /cast [nomounted] Black War Tiger()
    /dismount [mounted]
    /run UIErrorsFrame:Clear()
    /console Sound_EnableSFX 1
    It uses GCD to work it will try to always cast the 1st available (Seahorse in water, Flying if flying Zone, Ground Mount if else).
    How many addons/scripts/macros forget about underwater mount? The rest of the macro is to get rid of the Dings and Error Messages.

    Simple, yet is 100% guaranteed to always work regardless of any changes (which potentially could break an addon).
    The only way it could break is to remove GCD :P

    #showtooltip
    /dismount [mounted]
    /castrandom [swimming] Abyssal Seahorse; [flyable] Ironbound Proto-Drake; Raven Lord, Swift Zulian Tiger, White Polar Bear

    This macro does it job perfectly, even included the seahorse. The 3 last mounts will be randomly picked. You can do the same with the flying mount aswell by adding a comma after the protodrake

    Is there anyway to make the mecho-hog mount silent when riding it? The chuga-ga-ga noise gets annoying after a while.
