    Paladin Macro error

    While I do alot of PvE I don't mind the odd PVP BG once in a while, I'm having some trouble with a "anti-Rogue macro" so to speak. I would like something like: Every man for himself > Hand of freedom > Sacred Shield > DF > HS.

    I figure the way i'm going wrong on my macro is probably missing some type of [target]. Here how's my macro looks at the moment:

    /use Every Man for Himself
    /castsequence Hand of Freedom, Sacred Shield, Divine Favor, Holy Shock

    Everything seems to work apart form Holy Shock at the moment. I tried [target=myname] on HS but I get the same error, HS just won't cast.

    It targets you with all those spells automagically?! I'd venture a guess that if you had a friendly targeted it would cast on them, is that what you want?

    well assuming it works the way you want [target=player] should work?

    /use Every Man for Himself
    /castsequence Hand of Freedom, Sacred Shield, Divine Favor, [target=player]Holy Shock

    That works fine. I tried something similar this morning but I didn't use the /castsequence I used /cast.

    I guess it will use the spells on my "target" but I could just fix this with [target=ToonName] right

    Thanks, I guess I must have done a small typo in the 'target' bit.

    Use [target=player] - that targets yourself. Targets for the [target=] tag are Player, Target, Focus, Pet, MouseOver. Those are the ones I'm familiar with, at least.

    Another valid target for [target=] is "targetoftarget".

    *Edit* Of course it's "targettarget" :/

    FAIL!!!

    targettarget :P
    no "of" inbetween.

    And you can do it to infinite Example: target=targettargettargettarget would target the target of the target of the target of your target.


    And I am noticing the text under your avatar... is it true?

    Oh shame on me. Just checked ingame in my own macros. "targettarget" is correct :>

    Yes, it's true but let's try not to go offtopic, PM me for something like that ;>

    Try this...
    Code:
    /use Every Man for Himself
    /castsequence [target=player]Hand of Freedom, Sacred Shield, Divine Favor, Holy Shock
    If i remember right, for /castsequence you have to declare the target/parameters for all the spells at the start.

    EG: /castsequence [parameters] spell01, spell02, spell03

    Late reply Totally forgot I made this thread :'(

    That works great. Guess I went wrong because I put the parameter qat the end (Before HS) Thanks for clearing it up 8-)
