    I got them bound to F1-F6

    except for skull that one is bound to ALT F4. I think it is bugged, since it causes my game to crash everytime I try to skull a target.

    I think what he means is he wants to target the mob that is marked with a circle.
    I'm pretty sure that's not possible with a macro.

    That macro is impossible to do! Simply impossible.

    It is not possible to have a macro or addon target a mob by the raid target icon. It was possible back in 1.x, but the ability was removed around the original Naxx patch (1.12, I believe), to lessen the amount of automation possible.

    If you must target something specific in a hurry, and know it in advance then if its realistic to do so then set it as your focus.
    Targeting by raid symbol is unfortunatly not possible.

    replace the "8" with whatever you want.

    8 = skull
    7 = cross

    etc etc, can't remember what the circle is though
    That could work, but if I remember is reliant on someone in your raid already targeting that one.

    The issue there is you are using Windows. The alt f4 key combination is used to close a window. Rebind those keys elsewhere since the workaround for that would be too awkward. Ctrl as a modifier, or a different range of the function keys.

    And I just Icy Touch to mark a skull if it's needed, works always in party / raid. Of course you may remove and only use the initial macro.
    You're not getting what OP is asking are you? He is asking if there is a macro that will let you TARGET a mob based on it's ICON that someone already marked it with.

    To OP:

    No it's not possible and for good reasons. There is one add-on though that will sorta pick up any mob you're in combat with or someone mouse over and create a "bar" for each which you can indeed target, I'll try and find it for you. Think it also changes bar color based on if it's tanked or not ot getting CC'd. Not exactly what you were looking for though.

    http://www.wowace.com/addons/magic-targets/ I think it was/is. Doesn't seem like you can target via the mod anymore though. Haven't tested it.

    Zeven7, what you're talking about hasn't been possible since BC came out. Clickable bars/icons for targetting or spellcasting are not able to be created while in combat. Period.

    I personally use nameplates for targetting specific mobs while in combat.

    Re: Target Raid mark macro

    I'll make an assumption here and bet you need to target the one with a circle on it's head for some sort of crowd control. And every time you need to go back to crowd control that target you want a macro that will switch from your current target to your CC target to recast whatever CC you are assigned.

    If this assumption is correct, you can simply set the "circle" target as your focus by typing /focus. It will being up another unitframe as your focus target.

    Then make a macro that says the following:

    /cast [target=focus] Crowd Control

    Obviously replace the words Crowd Control with whatever spell you wish to use.

    There are more complicated focus macro's available, but this is by far the simplest one and the easiest to understand.

    And obviously if my assumption is wrong, then I hope I've at least helped someone else out.
