    Does it make a difference where the /startattack command in a macro is? Is there a practical difference between
    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /startattack
    /cast Mutilate
    and
    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /cast Mutilate
    /startattack
    ?

    Also does /startattack reset the swing timer? I am 99.9% certain it doesn't, I just need confirmation.

    Edit: I also need a macro that uses Vanish when in combat, Stealth when out of combat but only cancels Stealth when a modifier is pressed.

    Hello macro-geniuses!

    I come to you with high hopes on this one.

    I wonder if there is some sort of macro-command that uses your currently specced tier-talent.
    I dont know if i can explain it better but i would just like to macro /cast tier15 and it will cast the talent i have specced currently.
    That way i wont have to use 3 different macros for all 3 talents.

    My current macro is this;

    #showtooltip
    /cast [nomodifier] Thunder Focus Tea; [modifier:shift] Mana Tea; [modifier:ctrl] Diffuse Magic; [modifier:alt] Cobo Cola

    I would like for my ctrl-modifier to choose between Diffuse Magic, Dampen Harm and Healing Elixirs depending on which one is specced.

    Is this possible at all?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey all. Looking for a way to condense a few macros if possible, or free up bar space I suppose. Is there a way to make a macro where Shift+Q is flash of light self, Alt+Q is flash of light for a certain player and Ctrl+Q is for another certain player, all in one macro and all while making sure Q is strafe left? Any help for this would be great thank you.

    This CAN be done but it doesn't update icons and tooltips correctly and I believe a few other quirks. This is best handled by an addon which can be found here and discusses the examples of how to do this and the problems with doing it in a macro on the main page:

    http://www.wowinterface.com/download...entMacros.html

    You could try:

    Code:
    /use [nomod]SpecChoice1;[nomod]SpecChoice2;[mod:shift]SpecChoice3;[mod:shift]SpecChoice4;[mod:ctrl]SpecChoice5;[mod:ctrl]SpecChoice6; [mod:alt]SpecChoice7;[mod:alt]SpecChoice8

    Basically, just repeat the mod choice for each possible spell you want to cast, it should cast the 1st you have specced into.

    So in your case:


    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /use [mod:shift]Mana Tea;[mod:ctrl]Diffuse Magic;[mod:ctrl]Dampen Harm;[mod:ctrl]Healing Elixirs;[mod:alt]Cobo Cola;[]Thunder Focus Tea;

    This one only works with Diffuse Magic. Probably because its the first one in the macro. It doesnt work when i spec Dampen Harm.
    I guess ill have to use 2 different macros for this one. One for Dampen and one for Diffuse.

    Thanks anyways!

    Is there any way to cast a spell at a specific named mob without target swapping or using focus?

    I tried something like /cast [target=Direhorn spirit] Ice Lance but it doesn't work.

    It should be:
    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /use [mod:shift]Mana Tea; [mod:alt]Cobo Cola; Thunder Focus Team
    /stopmacro [nomod:ctrl]
    /cast Diffuse Magic
    /cast Dampen Harm
    /cast Healing Elixirs

    Think the Thunder Focus Tea needs a [nomod] , or it will still be casted when ctrl mod is used.

    No you cant add a mob name like that.

    You can use a macro like this:

    /target Direhorn Spirit
    /cast Ice Lance
    /targetlasttarget

    This will cast Ice Lance on the Direhorn Spirit without you losing your current target.

    Still only works with the first spell listed. In this case Diffuse Magic :/

    Just tried it on my monk, seems to work fine for me.
    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /use [mod:shift] Mana Tea; [mod:alt] Cobo Cola; [nomod] Thunder Focus Tea
    /stopmacro [nomod:ctrl]
    /cast Diffuse Magic
    /cast Dampen Harm
    Removed the Healing Elixirs line since it's a passive.

    Only thing that doesn't work is the Dampen Harm icon.

    Yeah, you're right. Didn't consider that.

    Posting my old macro question again since no one answered my question so far.
    Looking for an improved version of my void tendrils macro.
    Code:
    tar void
    /castsequence Void Tendrils, Power Word: Shield
    /targetlasttarget
    tar void / targetlasttarget is obviously a hassle/supoptimal and I'm looking for a macro that pw shields my tendril without deselecting my current target.(and casts void tendrils in the first place)

    Also i would like to turn my dispel magic/purify macro into a mouse over macro. (can't get it to work for some reason)
    Code:
    /cast [help,exists] Purify; [harm,exists] Dispel Magic

    Everything in the macro gets executed before control is returned back to you, so I would be surprised if you ever saw a difference between...
    Code:
    /target focus
    /cast [help,nodead] Heal
    /targetlasttarget
    ...and...
    Code:
    /cast [@focus,help,nodead] Heal
    The latter is obviously preferred, but that's not the point I'm making . I should mention, though, that that macro will: (1) cast on anyone else's friendly tendrils as well; (2) cast on only one of the tendrils if there are multiple people rooted.

    The issue is that his macro would target his previous target even if /target failed.

    You could try something like this, but it'd run into issues if there were multiple void tendrils up:
    Code:
    #showtooltip Void Tendrils
    /cleartarget
    /targetexact Void Tendril
    /cast [noexists][harm]Void Tendrils
    /targetlasttarget [noexists][harm]
    /stopmacro [noexists][harm]
    /cast Power Word: Shield
    /targetlasttarget

    Mmm, yea. If focus is being used, then there's not much way around having to use /cleartarget and that's not always desirable. But, with yours, /targetlasttarget should actually just revert /cleartarget if no Void Tendril was found.

    That's really quite a sneaky and masterful macro.

    I guess the issues left are: (1) the "wrong" one of your tendrils is targeted by the game, (2) another friendly priest, nearby, just used Void Tendrils and you shield theirs instead of yours and also block your own cast.

    I don't think this is possible, binding 2 actions (your macro and strafing) on the same key. If you want to bind stuff without having to put it on your action bar, look into an addon called BindPad.
