    Thanks.
    Code:
    /target [nomod] arena1
    /focus [mod:ctrl, @arena1]
    I've heard of an issue with modifiers and the razar naga, but can't remember it ;(, otherwise it should work

    Shift doesn't play well with num keys. Alt and ctrl are fine.

    This is what I use for Feng (the mouseover is so I can easily grab a debuff from another raid member, like Arcane Resonance):
    Code:
    /target [@mouseover,help][@focus]
    /click ExtraActionButton1
    /targetlastenemy
    Yours might work better like this:
    Code:
    /tar [@targettarget, exists][@OtherTanksName]
     /Click ExtraActionButton1
     /targetlastenemy
    One last thing, and I'm only mentioning this out of completeness. Shroud of Reversal is a channel, and is interrupted by movement and most likely using other abilities, so once you click this macro, you have to stand still and not do anything until the channel grabs the Fist.
    Very much appreciated!

    This would be what you wrote, but de-complicated.
    I would suggest a change though, namely replace [exists][@player]with a simple []. That way, it will cast on your normal target if no mouseover exists, and you can cast it on yourself with alt held down. The reason for the change is that now you can force-cast it on yourself with alt, whereas you would have needed to deselect your target with the original macro, in order to cast on yourself.
    Also, I suggest a "nodead" in the mouseover conditionals, hotting a dead friend is resulting in a "target is dead" error anyway; also, usually, "exists" is implied by "help"/"harm". (Also, #showtooltip usually works fine without anything).
    Resulting in
    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /cast [@mouseover,harm,nodead][@mouseover,help,nodead][] Execution Sentence
    EDIT :
    Which consequently can be reduced to
    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /cast [@mouseover,exists,nodead][] Execution Sentence
    Thanks very much for this. Can I ask, what are the [harm] and [help] conditions for then? It seems to me like you could get by without every using those. Or is it so if you macro [help] with execution sentence, you'd never be able to cast it on an enemy, only to HOT a friend?

    You're exactly right. If, say, you wanted the mouseover part to only work for friends, you'd use "help". Let's say on my druid, I have my healing spells macroed with /cast [@mouseover,help,nodead][].
    "Exists" works in this case because Exec Sent can be cast on friend or foe.
    No point mentioning these bats, I thought. The poor bastard will see them soon enough.

    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if any of you know a way that I can use a macro to announce an ability use, but, if on CD will not do/announce anything.

    For example:

    #showtooltip Barkskin
    /cast Barkskin
    /ra <- Barkskin Used - 20% red dmg for 12secs ->

    The problem is that it (ofc) announces it to /ra even if the macro is clicked and the ability was on CD. Is there any way around that? Cheers for the help!

    For this purpose, it's better to get an addon (Raeli's spell announcer for example).
    A macro can't easily detect cooldowns.

    I've actually tried it and have 2 problems

    1. Holding down ALT does not cast it on myself. I'm not sure why. In my options, I've checked that ALT is set to self-cast and the "enable auto self cast" option below that is checked. But its still not casting on myself. This is the most pressing problem.

    2. It doesn't seem to prioritize a mouseover > selected target. For example, I'm chopping down an enemy. I hover my mouse over my buddy, and hit the macro, but it casts it on my enemy instead.

    Could I get a diagnosis on whats wrong? Thanks ))

    Hey guys. I need a macro for rbgs. So, I need a macro to target my targetcaller's target. But I don't want to use assist macros. I would like the macro to work like this: Let's suppose that my target caller's name is Noob, so I want to click on the macro, and I will get noob's target. The macro can't also be used with focus targt. Can you guys please help me out? Thanks. =)

    I'm fairly certain you can use this:
    Code:
    /target [@Noob-target]

    I have no idea if this is possible but if it is, I would love a macro that did the following.
    1. Looked at my bags to see how much I had of certian items.
    2. preformed some basic math with those numbers
    3. told me the result in chat. (say is perfectly fine)

    The math I want to do is (Number of Starlight Inks in bags)+(Number of Misty Pigment/2)+(number of ink of dreams/10)+(number of shadow pigment/20)

    my scribe just hit 90 and he's been stockpiling scrolls so being able to see when I can make a new card with a quick button push would be nice. It's a quality of life macro for me, nothing I can't do on my own, would just be nice.

    1. No idea, if you're sure ALT+that keybind isn't bound anywhere.
    If you have a helpful mouseover, it'd still have priority over yourself even if you press alt. To change that, put a nomod or nomod:alt into that @mouseover bracket.

    2. It should though, if the mouseover is a "green" target. Check for spelling errors maybe.
    So that essentially means that the mouseover part is not working?

    So.. I recently started playing my Shaman again, and have now come to realise that I'd like to be able to recall specific totems, since it seems we can do that, now. Is there a way to cancel/recall only my water totem via a macro, but not any other totems?

    Been looking around and am unable to find what i am looking for :-/

    I want to make my healers aware of the debuff i get from Dark Bargain.

    #showtooltip
    /use Dark Bargain

    Then when the effect ends and i get the debuff, i'd like a /say Dark Bargain Debuff or similar.

    Is this possible?

    Currently my Stormstrike macro says this:

    #showtooltip
    /cast Stormstrike
    /startattack [harm]

    Now, I'm cleaning up my UI and button layout a bit and I'm combine skills under the same button. Using shift as the modifier button. Here would be an example:

    #showtooltip
    /cast [nomod]Stormstrike; [mod:shift]Spirit Walk
    /startattack [harm]

    The problem is, I don't want to start attacking when I cast Spirit Walk. I have no idea how to write the macro to accomplish this. I've done some searching online, but none of the tutorials address this.

    Hey all, need a little insight on druid stance macros. Basically, I want to have one button be Growl when in bear form, but be Entangling Roots in all other forms. How would one do this? (no mods)

    Code:
    /run DestroyTotem(1)
    Replace "1" with the totem you wish to destroy:

    1 - Fire
    2 - Earth
    3 - Water
    4 - Air

    I don't think you'll be able to do this with a macro, there are several addons that can do this for you.

    Here you can read more about the form conditional.

    Just a tiny addition on this one, in case he uses (in any way) ctrl or alt with this macro: I would specify /startattack [harm, nomod:shift].
