    Could someone make a macro that casts Amplify Curse and casts CoA? And how can I get rid of the macro text on the icon?

    /cast Dispel Magic ArenaTeammatesName

    work? As Dispel Magic, if I recall correctly, does not cast unless there is a defuff it can clean. I just want to get away from using the mouse and have it keys only, but I dont care how thats achieved.

    The proper macro syntax for that would be:

    /cast [target=ArenaTeammatesName] Dispel Magic
    /cast [target=player] Dispel Magic

    but I think that will always stop on the first Dispel Magic regardless if it doesn't cast if there's nothing to dispell.

    /use [button:1] Ebon Gryphon; [Button:2] Swift Yellow Mechanostrider
    

    I'm guessing that these wouldn't work with castable mounts (Paladin, Warlock, Druid) without some modification... is there any way to make a macro that functions similarly, but for one of those three classes using one castable and one "reins" mount?

    These should work for cast mounts as well. /use and /cast are the same thing under the hood I believe. If it doesn't work, just swap /use with /cast because I know /cast with items works but I don't know if /use with spells does.

    For example, my personal mount macro is thus:
    #showtooltip
    /cast [swimming] Aquatic Form; [outdoors,combat] Travel Form; [outdoors,flyable] Swift Flight Form; [outdoors] Black War Kodo; Cat Form

    I was SO TYPING THIS up when you posted.

    Anyhow, I don't play Rogue, but here's a hella useful rogue blind macro:

    /cast [target=mouseover,exists] Blind
    /cast Blind

    Bind that to a key. If you have a hostile opponent targeted, it will blind them.

    If you want to blind someone you don't have targeted, then simply mouseover their toon and hit your key.

    For example: Sumrogue has me targeted, going pew pew. My backup, Leethealz, shows up to rescue me. Sumrogue mouses over Leethealz and hits his Blind key, effectively Blinding Leethealz without ever having to detarget me.

    Fucking. Over. Powered.

    Could change Blind with Fear for my warlock?
    Yes.
    Sweet. I'm gonna try this out. Should be helpful when I'm soloing and get ganged up on.

    That intervene is going to be real useful. I can't quite figure out how to make a mouseover one, though... seems like it might be a bit faster to just mouseover somebody and use it.

    Is there a way to an ability such at a click uses it on the mouseover target?

    What I'd like to do is set it up so that I can shift+click on a target, and banish that target. Clique will almost do it, but you seem to have to click on the unitframe for it to work.

    Simple priest macro that automatically uses my prayer book.

    Go into sound options. Turn off "Enable Error Speech"

    /use 14
    /cast Greater Heal(Rank 1)

    Replace Greater Heal or the rank of it with whatever heal you cast most often, and 14 with 13 if your prayer book is in the top trinket spot instead of the bottom.

    Maybe do the blind Macro, place it on your bar, and then bind a shift+click to it? I'm not sure if you can bind shift+click though, but in theory it would work.

    Also, is there a macro that 1st casts Amp. Curse and then casts Curse of Agony (like with a double key press), but if Amp. Curse is on cooldown it just casts Agony? I tried looking for it in Google and on the WoW forums, but none of the class forums has a macro thread stickied... and they used to (6 months ago?).

    Again, thanks for any info/help.


    /cast Amplify Curse
    /stopcasting
    /cast Curse of Agony

    would work.

    check out http://www.wowwiki.com/Useful_macros/Warlock for more awesome macros. (Change class name for macros for your class)


    My question is, is it possible to target by raid icon. like /target GreenTriangle

    Dude, soooooooo much <3 for this link. I gave up searching the web for a good macro site, and didnt think to check the goodness that is wowwiki. Thank you so much.

    Your SendChatMessage needs to look like this

    Taken from WowWiki:
    /clearfocus [modifier:shift] [button:2] [target=focus,dead] [target=focus,noexists]
     /focus [target=focus,noexists]
     /stopmacro [target=noharm]
     /cast [target=focus] Shackle Undead
     /raid Shackling &#37;f
    
    Am I correct in assuming that this is a one-button press to set focus and shack, and afterwards will shackle the focused target without pressing any modifier buttons? Because if it is I will bitchslap our priests into using it on Moroes.

    Edit: Moreover, I assume that the following change would dispell, for use during Romeo & Juliet:
    /clearfocus [modifier:shift] [button:2] [target=focus,dead] [target=focus,noexists]
     /focus [target=focus,noexists]

    The /stopmacro [target=noharm] lines don't make any sense. If you want it to stop if your target is friendly then it should be /stopmacro [noharm] and if you want it to stop if your focus is friendly it should be /stopmacro [target=focus,noharm]

    Sub in the name of your mounts for the two highlighted areas.
    If you can swim it will put you in sea lion.
    If you are in combat it will put you in travel form.
    If you are out of combat and can fly then it will put you in flight form.
    If you can't fly and are out of combat then it will use your ground mount.
    Right clicking uses my flying mount.

    In case noone has this yet (i might have missed it but I didnt see it so).

    /cast [target=mouseover] healingspell, /cast [target=help] healingspell

    This is a wonderful macro. It will cast a heal on whoever your mouse cursor is over, and if its not over someone, your current target. The thing I never knew about this till yesterday is, if you use this macro mouseover counts on grid characters. It might work on normal party too I'm not sure. But basically, I can target whatever I want, and just mouse over someone on my grid and it heals them. This is awesome for say, bosses you want to constantly monitor, or if you want to be watching your CC target without focus to see castbars or whatever ect. It also means much less reaction time needed clicking ect. I personally fine it easier to aim my mouse over someone on grid than clicking it first and then hitting a button. Either way, I am obsessed with this now and spot healing is no longer a chore. I also am trying to get into using it for dispels as well.

    Hi all,

    Looking for help with a little trinket macro. Been clearing up lots of button space using modifiers but having trouble with this /use macro. I'm trying to use the trinket in the lower slot if no modifier is pressed, or use the trinket in the upper slot if I hold down the control key.

    #showtooltip
    /use [modifier:ctrl] 13; 14

    The macro works for the trinket in slot 14, but not for the trinket in slot 13. The showtooltip changes dynamically (love that) when I hold down the control key, but the button press does not activate the trinket. I've also moved the trinket on my character from slot 14 to slot 13 with the same result so its not the trinket that is the issue. I haven't tried specifying the trinket by name because I want to use this same macro on the same button for all my characters.

    Also, I thought the broken shift key modifier had been fixed in 2.1 but I still can't get the shift key to work as a conditional. I've also gone through my key bindings to make sure there are no conflicts.

    Forgot to share a bunch of scripts I've adopted/modified from the Blizzard UI forum.

    #Showtooltip
    /use Dense Sharpening Stone
    /use 16

    -One button applying Blacksmith's Sharpening Stone. You can substitute the appropriate type of stone including Weightstones. Off hand weapon would be slot 17. I believe this would work with Rogue poisons if you don't use an addon.


    /castsequence reset=120 Will of the Forsaken, Insignia of the Horde

    -For Forsaken characters who also have the pvp trinket to get out of fear


    /petattack
    /petfollow [target=pettarget,exists]

    -First button press sends your pet to attack. Second button press calls you pet back.


    I'll post class specific ones separately...

    Pallies, Shammies, and Furries! (sounds like a kid's show)

    #showtooltip
    /cast [modifier:ctrl] Consecration(Rank 1); Consecration

    -Is that a rogue behind me? Use the low rank just to check and conserve mana.


    #showtooltip
    /cast [modifier:ctrl] Concentration Aura; [modifier:alt,target=player] Flash of Light; Flash of Light

    -To keep my commonly used auras within easy reach: Holding control will cast the aura (or remove it if it is active). Otherwise FoL spam away.


    #showtooltip
    /cast [modifier:ctrl] Retribution Aura; Seal of Righteousness

    -No one worth healing in this battleground? Go O with retribution. Change the Seal to whatever is your favorite.


    #showtooltip
    /cast [modifier:ctrl] Seal of Wisdom; Seal of Light

    -Just a buttonspace saver, but the two seals/judgements I usually switch between when prot grinding.


    #Showtooltip
    /cast [modifier:ctrl] Cure Disease; Disease Cleansing Totem

    -I almost always use the totem since the debuff is likely to be re-applied anyway, but sometimes you want to remove a debuff from someone not in your party.


    #Showtooltip
    /cast [modifier:ctrl] Cure Poison; Poison Cleansing Totem

    -See above.


    #Showtooltip
    /cast [modifier:ctrl] Magma Totem; [modifier:alt] Fire Nova Totem; Searing Totem

    -I rarely use any Fire totems, but three for one buttonspace is okay. I do similar things with my other totems, but you get the idea.


    #showtooltip Elemental Master
    /Cast Elemental Master
    /stopcasting
    /cast Chain Lightning

    -One button press to activate and cast. I leave EM as the tooltip so I know what the cooldown is.


    #showtooltip Healing Touch
    /cast Nature's Swiftness
    /stopcasting
    /cast Healing Touch

    -Instant health go!


    #showtooltip Moonfire
    /cast [modifier:ctrl]Moonfire(Rank 1); Moonfire

    -For killing totems or just to keep something in combat, you can use the lower rank without using too much mana.


    #showtooltip
    /cast [modifier:ctrl] Shred; [modifier:stealth] Ravage; Mangle (Cat)()

    -Since I solo in feral I rarely get to get in any shreds, but this keeps it available after a pounce. If I mess up my Ravage or the mob detects me, mangle is there so I don't keep hitting the Ravage button uselessly.

    Warlock macros: Most of these are just to save buttonspace. Necrosis is great, but I'd rather have everything hotkeyed instead of clicking buttons. It takes a bit of practice to remember what is what, but now the dynamically changing tooltips make it easy to double check on the fly.

    #showtooltip Banish
    /castsequence Curse of Shadow, Banish

    -Having trouble banishing that other lock's felpuppy? This should help.

    #showtooltip
    /cast [modifier:ctrl] Soul Fire; Shadow Bolt

    -Soul Fire is used so rarely I wouldn't even bother to put it on a button, but this makes it at least available in a pinch.

    #showtooltip
    /cast [modifier:ctrl] Curse of Shadow; Corruption

    -Didn't want to have Curse of Shadows waste any space, but still available for quickfiring.


    #showtooltip
    /cast [modifier:ctrl] Curse of the Elements; Immolate

    -Ditto.


    #showtooltip Death Coil
    /cast [modifier:ctrl] Death Coil; Fear

    -Death Coil as the tooltip to show its cooldown.


    #showtooltip
    /cast [pet:felhunter] Spell Lock; [pet:succubus] Seduction; [pet:voidwalker] Sacrifice

    -Cast Sacrifice if you have a Voidwalker out, Seduction if you have a Succubus, Spell Lock if you have your felhunter out. Three pets, one button!


    #showtooltip
    /cast [nomodifier] Drain Life; [modifier:ctrl] Drain Soul; [modifier:alt] Drain Mana

    -These three seem to fit together, so why not? Had the nomodifier option in there before they had the dynamically updating showtooltips.

    I'm currently using a very simple macro to set my focus target when banishing something but is there a way to hit the button again to auto re-cast banish onto my focus without losing my current target? I use a dot macro to cycle through siphon, corruption and agony so it's a pain when I have to switch targets since I have to then restart from my first dot on the list.

    /cast [target=focus] Banish

    Should set your focus if you don't have one or if your focus is dead then cast banish. If you do have a focus then it will just cast banish. You can right click to set a new focus. You can keep/get rid of stopcasting. Just nice because you can hit the button in the middle of a cast if you see your banish break.
