    Self-decursing macro

    Hi folks,

    I have a macro to debuff any pesky magic that is cast on me. The macro is as follows:

    /cast [target=player] Dispel Magic

    Yesterday, while leveling in Zul'Drak I realized that some mobs were diseasing me, and now that we can cast abolish disease while in shadowform, and as Dispel Magic doesn't trigger GCD if there isn't anything to dispel, I wanted to tune my macro in order to first try to dispel magic and then abolish disease:

    /cast [target=player] Dispell Magic
    /cast [target=player] Abolish Disease

    But when I use that, I get a "There is nothing to dispel" message, followed by a "You can't cast that yet", even if no GCD is triggered.

    Can you help me with this?

    PS: I'm not on wow now, so some terms might not be accurate, but the idea of the macro is that.

    ye, try Decursive addon, most easiest way to decurse/dispel /abolish everything

    /cast [target=mouseover] Remove Curse


    With this macro I can decurse myself and all raid very fast.

    Thank you guys for answering, but you didn't get my point.

    I know there is decursive (but I didn't use it since Blackwing Lair) and I've Smartdebuff, but what I'm looking for is a self-debuffing macro.

    I've already have a macro that dispels any magic on myself (/cast [target=player] Disipar magia), but what I want to know is if I can improve this same macro in order to try to cast on myself Dispel Magic and later Abolish Disease

    Yeah, I know I can use modifiers, Shift-click, L-click/R-click... but I'm kinda slow-motion guy, so I would prefer do it in a single click

    /castsequence Dispell Magic, Abolish Disease
    Just make sure "auto self cast" is turned on in options, or add the "target=player" clause to it.

    That ends up being:

    1st click - Dispel Magic
    2nd click - Abolish disease

    That has a little problem: If there is nothing to dispell, dispel magic is never cast, so 2nd click also attempts to cast dispel magic again and you'll never get to the Abolish one.
    I've tried it 1st disease - 2nd magic, and I decurse diseases but I stall in the 2nd click and the loop never starts again

    Re: Self-decursing macro

    /castsequence reset=5 Abolish Disease, Dispel Magic

    This isn't as effective as you want, but it will cast both and reset if it "gets stuck".

    You may also want to try:

    /cast Dispel Magic
    /stopcasting
    /cast Abolish Disease

    (with the target=player in there)

    It may solve the issue.

    Re: Self-decursing macro

    Since when does Dispel Magic NOT cause a global cooldown?

    If it wouldn't cause a GCD you would be able to cast it 100 times in 1,5 seconds...
    which you obviously cannot. Not even 2-3 times in 1,5 seconds.

    I forgot how to make it, but I had a macro with my warlock.. You need cast Sequence, so if one is cast or the other cant be cast, it wil lcast the other one..

    I forgot how to make this macro... lol It is somewhereon the warlock wow forums though.

    D'oh!

    It was late, and I was tired...
    Anyway, if a spell triggers a GCD under any condition, you cannot add a second spell to the macro, unless you use castsequence.

    This ^^

    That's also how decursive does it.

    ^true story. That method is one of the only ones that will work for this. Another one is as follows:

    /castsequence reset=2 [target=player] Abolish Disease, [target=player] Dispel Magic

    ^this should work due to abolish disease casting on a target regardless of whether or not the player has a disease effect on them. The downside is you're likely wasting mana.

    Other methods no longer work as an effort to prevent botting or the original Decursive method:

    /cast [target=player] Dispel Magic
    /stopcasting
    /cast [target=player] Cure Disease

    ^the converted way of doing this without the castrandom action is to just put a modifier key in for the dispel type. Since magical attacks are far more common than diseases, something like:

    /cast [nomod:ctrl,target=player] Dispel Magic
    /cast [mod:ctrl,target=player] Cure Disease

    Mash it for dispel magic or hit ctrl + mash it for cure disease. The castrandom method is the most brainless and easiest way to do it, though, however you do run the risk of castrandom calling dispel magic 3x in a row

    Re: Self-decursing macro

    Could just cast Cure Disease, instead of Abolish, to prevent mana waste.

    But I don't mind it for PvP.

    Thank you all for the answers

    The problem with Cure Disease is the same as having Dispel Magic at the begining of a /castsequence : If there is nothing to dispel, the spell is never cast and so, the sequence never starts and you'll never get to the second spell (Abolish / Cure Disease)

    /castsequence reset=2 [target=player] Abolish Disease, [target=player] Dispel Magic

    ^ Works, but waste of mana

    /castsequence reset=2 [target=player] Cure Disease, [target=player] Dispel Magic

    ^ Doesn't work


    Is there any conditional (like the nonchanneling for the mind flay macros) in order to determine if the target is either diseased or magic'ed ??

    Alas, no. They removed the option to check if a buff/debuff is active on an entity some patches ago.
