    Lightbulb various ways to make to-do list macros to keep track of your goals

    8.3 has a lot of stuff to do. Ever want an in-game to-do list to keep track of everything? These macros must stay at 255 characters or less to work. Here are some solutions:

    Solution 1:

    /run ktodo = ktodo or 0 if (ktodo == 0)then ktodo = 1 print("Do call to arms dailies & BGs for 440 weapon week 1, farm greens for alpaca mount")end
    /cast Judgment

    This macro is meant to replace a commonly used skill or spell on your bar. The FIRST time you press it after logging in, it will print a to-do list to your chat window. It never prints the message again unless you reload your ui or start a new session. You can edit this in-game and it will update without relogging.

    Solution 2:

    /run ktodo = ktodo or 0 if (ktodo == 0)then print("Do call to arms dailies & BGs for 440 weapon week 1, farm greens for alpaca mount")end;ktodo = ktodo +1;if (ktodo == 50)then ktodo = 0 end
    /cast Judgment

    This macro slightly modifies the last one. The message is sent every 50th time you press the button. The button replaces your judgment button so every 50 times you cast judgment, you get a reminder to-do list printed to chat. You can edit this in-game and it will update without relogging. You can of course change the number 50 to any number you like. If you set it to 20, it will print every 20 presses.

    Solution 3:


    /script GameTooltip:HookScript("OnTooltipSetUnit",function()GameTooltip:AddLine("To-Do list!!!!\r\n1. build Jeeves\r\n2. pally mog farm Baston of Twilight\r\n3. Boss #1 forgotten depths (belt)\r\n4. vulpera/mechagnome quests\r\n5. lesser vision")end)

    This is a different approach where we hook the tooltip function and add some text. You can edit the text but be careful to leave the \r\n between each line or it gets messy. Unfortunately, if you update the to-do list here, you'll need to reload the ui using /console reloadui to have it take effect.

    If you are having trouble keeping track of everything you need to do in 8.3, maybe making one of these to-do lists will help!

Space platforms as in Starcraft. Just a totally fantastic tileset & theme that I'd be very keen to explore. They could do some wild things.

    Or you can just make a spreadsheet in Google.
