    That's too bad. Thanks for the help though.

    Hello everybody!

    Just started playing my (resto) druid and would like to have a macro for nature's swiftness. What this macro should do is cast nature's swiftness and then i.e. healing touch and when modified with shift it should only cast healing touch without nature's swiftness.

    If anybody has a good source of druid macros in general (especially for resto pvp) I would also be very grateful.

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    I'm assuming you are casting at your actual target. To answer your question:

    #showtooltip [mod:shift] Healing Touch; Nature's Swiftness
    /use [mod:shift] Healing Touch
    /use [nomod] Nature's Swiftness
    /use Healing Touch
    /use 1

    If you shift click this with a harmful target, nothing will happen. If you just left click with a harmful target, Nature's Swiftness will cast but no Healing Touch and no glowing hand. Macro works as advertised with a friendly target. One error sound on regular HT cast.

    If you delete the "/use 1" line, friendly targets still work, but if you EITHER left OR shift click with a harmful target, you will get a glowing hand queue for a NS+HT, which will just fire HT if NS is on cooldown. Error speech and messages. This is quirky but more useful imo. Try both, its just 6 characters lol

    TBH, both mouseover macros and clickcasting eliminate the need to switch targets to heal the group, giving a you the competitive advantage of keeping enemies targeted and CC'd while you click/mouseover raid frames, and it's one less button to push for every cast. Clickcasting in particular is nice since binding spells to shift/cntrl/alt to mouse buttons 1/2/3/4/5 frees up 15 actionbar slots and/or keybinds.

    If you're switching friendly targets because your raid frames don't have the info you need, it's time to go addon shopping - google "best healer raid frames." Be careful with the healer package addons Healbot and Vuhdo - they come with their own clickcasting and more crap you don't need. Clique for clickcasting, your favorite unitframes addon, and some cooldown tracking (coolline is the lightest no nonsenseone I know). Sorry sometimes I dont know when to shut up lol

    Thanks Corncob!
    Will also make it a mousover macro. Just wanted to have one button for healing touch and healing touch with nature's swiftness.

    Why not just (included mouseover functionality as well)
    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /cast [nomod:shift] Nature's Swiftness
    /cast [@mouseover, help, nodead][help, nodead] Healing Touch

    No point mentioning these bats, I thought. The poor bastard will see them soon enough.

    Brilliant! As a Clique user it never really occurred to me to combine them XD

    Ok, so is it allowed to have a macro that I can use to hit over and over thatll use my spell that is highest up in the prioirty rotation I set and is off cd? So say I have a list of three spells in order. Itll use spell A instead of B,C if they are all off cd. Itll use spell B if its off cd and A is not, but C is also off cd. If it is allowed, can anyone tell me a good macro set up for it? I tank so I want to clear up my action bars of at least the dps spells if I could so I could easily hit 1 button so I can focus more on my defensive cds. That way I can keybind them to keys I can more easily reach.

    Currently using this macro to Powershift on my Druid:

    #showtooltip
    /cast [swimming] !Aquatic Form; [stance:1] !Bear Form; [stance:3] !Cat Form; [stance:6] !Moonkin Form; [stance:7] !Swift Flight Form; [nostance , nocombat, noswimming, flyable][stance:7] !Swift Flight Form; !Travel Form

    It will re-cast the same form you are in for all forms, will cast appropriate travel forms for flyable, non-flyable and swimming environments. I would also like it to cast cat form for areas where travel forms are not allowed like indoors but as always keep the functionality of not over-righting an existing form ( when outside in Pandaria and out of combat, if im already in Moonkin form it won't over-right it with flight form, only when in caster form it will be casted.

    tl;dr : I want it to cast Cat form indoors without breaking the rest of the addon.

    Thanks for the answer but that breaks part of the macro.

    I came up with

    /cast [indoors, noform] Cat Form; [swimming] !Aquatic Form; [stance:1] !Bear Form; [stance:3] !Cat Form; [stance:6] !Moonkin Form; [stance:7] !Swift Flight Form; [nostance, nocombat, noswimming, flyable][stance:7] !Swift Flight Form; !Travel Form
    I removed showtooltip like you did to get space (>.< thanks for that too) and added /cast [indoors, noform] Cat Form; . It works exactly as I want it with the only issue that if I spam it in Bear form and catches a GCD it will put me in cat form, while if I spam it in Moonkin for it never breaks even on GCD. Any ideas why is that?

    That's bad if I want to powershift as Bear in a raid...

    FWIW, YayMounts has excellent Druid form support. I haven't had a shapeshift macro since TBC.

    Nope, not possible. That would be the game playing for you and would facilitate botting. Casting priorities/detecting an ability off cooldown is not possible through a macro.

    First, Excuse me if this has been asked and answered before.

    Is there a way to skip a entry in a macro if that entry is on CD?

    Example ;
    /castsequence reset=target Hand of Gul'dan, Corruption, Dark Soul: Knowledge, Hand of Gul'dan, Gloves of the Horned Nightmare, Metamorphosis, Doom, Doom, Grimoire: Felguard, Felstorm
    /petattack

    Is it possible to make it skip using Gloves of the Horned Nightmare (Synapse Springs) if it's on CD?!

    No, macros can't check for CD's, but I'm fairly certain it's off the GCD, so you could just separate it from the rest.

    Code:
    /castsequence reset=target Hand of Gul'dan, Corruption, Dark Soul: Knowledge, Hand of Gul'dan, Metamorphosis, Doom, Doom, Grimoire: Felguard, Felstorm
    /use Gloves of the Horned Nightmare
    /run UIErrorsFrame:Clear()
    /petattack

    That should do what you're looking for. It'll try to use the Gloves every time you press the macro, so "/run UIErrorsFrame:Clear()" should prevent you from getting that red text spamming your screen while using this.

    That worked just as well ! Thank you kind sir!

    The following is arguably a little better, in that instead of clearing everything currently in the error frame it will just disable error reporting (and error sounds) when attempting to use the gloves:

    Code:
    /castsequence reset=target Hand of Gul'dan, Corruption, Dark Soul: Knowledge, Hand of Gul'dan, Metamorphosis, Doom, Doom, Grimoire: Felguard, Felstorm
    /run SlashCmdList.UI_ERRORS_OFF()
    /use 10
    /run SlashCmdList.UI_ERRORS_ON()
    /petattack

    ("/use 10" attempts to use whatever item is equipped on your hands; you could just as well enter the whole item name, except then this macro would be over the limit of 255 characters.)

    (+ /use 10 still works when you get new gloves and thus is preferrable anyway )

    Hey all, I'd like to create a macro that I will be able to use to cast Strangulate on target, but also focus target if I have another target on focus. Priority would be on the focus target if possible. Thanks!!
