    Question Start attack move doesn't work after i charge

    I am new to fury warr so trying to make some quality of life macros to make things better/easier,

    Basicly i use this to avoid using tab to target enemies.

    "#showtooltip
    /startattack
    /cast Bloodthirst"

    This works perfectly if i just run up to an enemy/training dummy.

    But if i charge in, it doesn't work, i have to use tab to target.

    Can anyone explain to me why this happens, am i doing something wrong or is it supposed to be like that?

    Wild guess: global cooldown

    Then why can i use it if i tab target?

    And Bloodthirst was just an example, i have made start attack macros for most spells, and none work.

    Move /startattack to the bottom of the macro.

    Mine looks like this
    #show
    /cast Spellname
    /startattack
    Never had a problem in all those years of service.

    If you have issues with not being able to use white attacks after Charge, then add the following line somewhere
    /cleartarget
    /targetlasttarget

    Global cooldown means that you have to wait a small time after one skill before you can use the next. If you charge and try to cast bloodthirst while the global cooldown from charge is still going bloodthirst will not work.

    Only a few skills (like interrupting) are not on the global cooldown.

    charge isn't even on the global cooldown...

    Anyways, I'm assuming you need this because you're using a charge macro to charge something without targeting them, as you wouldn't need a target macro if you were manually selecting something to charge as you would have them targeted. Just add /target [@mouseover, harm] to your charge macro.
    Can also add /targetenemy [noharm] to your attack macro, but if you're charging an enemy and theres a closer enemy nearby in front of you when you hit it, it will select them instead of the target you charged.

    Unless you're PvPing where you're likely to lose a target (Vanish/Smeld/FD, etc), and you're on something like an energy class, you don't need startattack macros any more - your abilities auto target/start attacking, and that includes Charge and Bloodthirst.

    And no, Charge isn't on the GCD like people above seem to be thinking.

    How do you charge something without having it targeted?

    If you have nothing targeted it does not auto target, to make this happen i have used /start attack macros on every champ i play, this has worked perfectly untill i tried it on the warrior, it does work, but not after i use charge wich makes no sense to me at all.

    Will try this after i get home from work:
    /cleartarget
    /targetlasttarget

    Abilities like Bloodthirst do auto target, it's been default for a fair while now. I literally did it before hitting post on that comment to confirm it, too.

    If you desperately need something for Charge then just use /targetenemy in the macro, e.g.:

    Code:
    #showtooltip Charge
    /targetenemy
    /cancelaura Bladestorm
    /cast [@mouseover,exists,help,nodead] Intercept; Intercept
    /cast [harm,exists,nodead] Charge
    E: You can remove the intercept part, that's because my alt is Prot.
