) is optional. Arcane Mage: #showtooltip #show Mirror Image /cast Arcane Power /use 13 /use 14 /cast Mirror Image /script UIErrorsFrame:Clear() This casts "Arcane Power", uses any "use" trinkets you may have, then casts Mirror Image. Because of this, you cannot use a /castsequence to make a spammable macro like: Before the spell list (but always after the conditionals), you can also specify reset conditions to start the sequence over before it reaches the end. In this case you will want to use an empty set of conditions which will always evaluate to true. There are also addons that handles this, such as Raeli's Spell Announcer. We highly suggest that all of your healing spells, as well as other utility spells that can be cast on raid members … A macro is a list of slash commands. Now you will notice that the macro icon you chose has been added to the 18 boxes mentioned earlier (as much of the name as will fit is also displayed on the icon). ... By rnglbd in forum World of Warcraft Buy Sell Trade Replies: 0 Last Post: 04-29-2012, 07:25 AM. The files must follow the same guidelines for UI textures. To make this job a bit easier, we have the /castsequence command. Like /cast, its simplest form takes the name of the item you want to use: There are also a couple other forms of the /use command: This form of use allows you to use an item in the specified slot. In general, you cannot cast more than one spell with a single click of a macro. I have this fantastic all-purpose-targeting-macro for lot’s of NPCs that I want to target (and tag) quickly. Luckily the Burning Crusade patches brought us a host of new pet commands: Sends your pet to attack your target. However, this does not necessarily include the condition's parameters (described below). Unit IDs are a way to identify a particular character, mob, NPC, etc. Notice that [nohelp] does not mean the same thing as [harm]. Once you use the last entry in the list, it will reset to the beginning. This is a plus or a minus depending on your situation. Prior to patch 2.3 it was necessary to place a /stopcasting command after the instant, non-GCD spells (but not items). That last bit needs a concrete example: In this case, the key unit is focus. As shown above, MultiBarRightButton1 refers to the first button of the right-hand vertical extra action bar. To make a macro cycle through two different 'sets' of spells that should be used together, where each set can not be used at the same time (i.e trinkets with shared cooldowns) it is possible to use multiple instances of /castsequence to achieve this effect. The parameter to #show (in this case Pyroblast) works the same way as the /cast and /use commands. This also means you can put the two commands in either order and it will have the same effect. /equip simply takes an item name and will equip it to the default slot as if you had right-clicked it in one of your bags (i.e., a one-handed weapon will be equipped to your main hand). But nothing will happen when you haven't selected any target. Target Focus will, as you might guess, target the entity you have focused. You can specify any number of these conditions separated by slashes as shown. The following macro will cast Flash of Light on the unit under your mouse. Without any parameters, /focus works exactly like the key binding, setting your current target as your focus. Even if a spell fails to cast, if it would trigger the GCD, it prevents subsequent /casts in the macro from running. The following macro solves this problem: With the exception of Warriors, any class with stances (Druids, Priests with [Shadowform], Rogues with [Stealth], etc.) This assures that Arcane power and potion will be used on mirror image, while alter time will return you to a state with your procs already on. For example, you might have a really long macro that doesn't fit into 255 characters. This isn't very useful for simple macros like you've seen so far. These commands cycle through the specified type of unit. A condition like [help, nodead, @focus] means "My focus is friendly AND not dead.". The parameters depend on the command, and some commands don't take any. Since we are using [@focus], WoW will send "focus" to the /focus command. If you're happy with the spell that WoW is choosing for the feedback, you can use #showtooltip without a spell to save space in your macro. As of patch 2.3.2, the cast command toggles abilities on and off. Thats the way i'm doing this..just not with Huolon only. There can be an awful lot of confusion around how macro options work, so I will take this early opportunity to break down the general concepts behind them. For example, /target party1 will target your first party member. The value associated with the first satisfied condition will be interpreted as described below. The set of parameters begins with a colon (:) and each parameter is separated with a slash (/) that means "or." The list is split up in three parts, because it's too much to put in one macro. There is a joke about Kevin Bacon involving a macro like: Here is a brief overview of the other targeting commands: By itself, assist targets your target's target (e.g. Notice: Conditions are case-sensitive. In this case, you can specify the icon using #showtooltip as described above. to resurrect or loot them, then delete those lines). Second, you have to keep the entire script on one line. Insecure commands like chatting, emotes, etc. However, let's look at a breakdown of this macro: See that extra blank set of options and parameters? Well, simply put the cast and /p message in a macro: Note: Since the macro is executed all at once, the /p command will be issued when you start the cast, and will not care either way whether you have a valid target or whether Polymorph is on cooldown. The macro will also be automatically saved when you first try to use it or when you close the macros window. Huolon is a level 35 - 50 Rare Elite NPC that can be found in Timeless Isle. Also, TomTom doesn't automatically give you a route to follow, but it's still very useful to see exactly where all the chests are on the (mini)map. In the Serpent NPCs category. Remember that a blank set of options always evaluates to true, so that second empty parameter gets passed to /petattack if the first conditions are false. Another friend of mine, brand new to the game, decided to come along. The most basic targeting command (unsurprisingly) is /target. Write spells and items just like you see in their tooltips. Acknowledgements You must repeatedly activate the macro to use all the spells in the sequence. Note: Macros run all the commands at once. You have a command, and a set of parameters. When you are done typing your macro, click the Save button, drag the macro's icon from the grid and place it on an action button. However, these bindings don't really take full advantage of focus. In fact, you can imagine a single-spell /cast command as a macro option with one clause that has no conditions. The /cast command allows you to cast any spell from your (or your pet's) spell book by name. If you used the question mark icon, WoW will automatically update the icon to the current element of the sequence. Examples of such toggleable abilities are Stealth, Shoot or Mass Dispel (the green targeting circle). We could also have left off the "target" at the end since the /focus command defaults to your target. During the normal course of play, you aren't likely to type many slash commands that are generally useful for macros. Still, it's usually better to consistently capitalize as things appear. These commands cycle through player-controlled units. You can also append "target" to the end of any valid unit ID to arrive at that unit's target. Second, and arguably more important, there is no way to wait in a macro without freezing the game. For those of you hunting rares, here's a little help. If the target is [help] than it will use it's helpful spell. A good Hunter will only rarely need to use their melee attacks, which lets us bind all those abilities to one key that will largely go unused. 32x32, 512x128). Its main use is to implement "fall-through" logic to prevent you from continuing a macro if certain conditions are true. Open up the macro window. If you choose the question mark icon (), WoW will automatically pick an icon for your macro based on what spells or items are listed in the macro. See the previously linked references and the Mod Author Resources sticky for more information. /stopcasting removes this assumption and prevents the "Another action is in progress" error. While scripts do remain useful for quite a few purposes, you cannot use them to cast spells, use items, change your action bar page or affect your target in any way. To reiterate for clarity, the key unit is a unit you can use in [@] option that will allow you to send another unit to the command. There is. In fact, if you choose the question mark icon I mentioned earlier, the action bar will even show the icon for SW:P. "Ho, hum," you might be thinking... Why not just put the spell on your bar? Finally, it casts Polymorph on your focus. When you run this macro, the [help] condition is checked. For example, [stance] by itself means "In any stance" (useful for every class with stances except Warriors since they are always in a stance). This can be done all in one like the following: That's quite an unwieldy bit of script there. The /cancelaura command allows you to remove unwanted buffs. but with the following macro it will use selfcast when nothing is selected. For example, a Death Knight without the Horn of Winter minor glyph cannot cast Horn of Winter if a glyphed version of the buff is already on them (from another Death Knight). If the name is spelled wrong or that unit is not near you, your target will not be changed. The main point of this spell is to cast Pyroblast. Hunter attacks in World of Warcraft: Classic are separated by Melee and Ranged attacks. From the official patchnotes: /cast will toggle spells again unless the name is prefixed with an exclamation mark, e.g. Here's a simple example that uses Shield Bash in Defensive or Battle Stance, but switches into Defensive Stance if you're in Berserker: This can be simplified to pseudo-code English as "IF currently in stance 1 OR in stance 2 then use Shield Bash ELSE switch to Defensive Stance.

Once you have a focus set, you can use it as a unit ID for any other command. ... \Program Files\World of Warcraft\Cache\WDB\enGB\npccache.wdb" ... -make a macro (/tar huolon /cast moonfire) - example for druid-keybind the macro and make sure you can fire it easily You yourself are accessed by the "player" ID, and if you have a pet it would be referenced by "pet." This makes macros like the following much less useful than they might first appear. Best way to do this is have 2 clients open and when Huolon spawns just kick your other char. Like the Crimsonscale Firestorms, she will ignore players unless attacked. The macro also removes any current raid marker from your target and sets a moon raid marker on it. I believe the newest SuperMacro provides this functionality as well. That is, it is NOT given by the server. You can look through the UI code for the frame. The above macro can be shortened to: Targeting is another common task in macros. Lets say you always keep the food you want to feed your pet in the first slot of your backpack. Blizzard provides many functions (called the API) which the Lua scripts can use to control the UI. If you use that unit in your [@] option, WoW will allow you to specify another unit or will use the default unit for the command if you don't specify one. To dive right into an example, the following macro will cast Renew on a friendly target and Shadow Word: Pain on a hostile one. [harm] is just like [help] but for offensive spells. If the target is [harm] than it will use it's harmful spell. Blizzard's approach to macros (in-game or out) is that one keypress should trigger only one action. You can also specify any valid unit ID (see Targeting above) or name as a parameter to /focus: Here is an example of more advanced focusing: The first line sets your focus to your current target (or clears your focus if you don't have a target) in one of the following situations: The second line keeps the macro from proceeding if you don't have a focus. /equipslot takes an inventory slot ID and an item name, and equips the item to the specified slot. Now you can use a macro like the following to cast sheep on your focus: Note that this is not the most efficient use of the focus feature. A very common error when writing macros is to add an extra semicolon to the end, but this creates some unexpected bugs. You can view the API and other features of the UI system over at Interface Customization (if you spend any considerable time with scripts and/or addons, Wowpedia will be indispensable). Common slash commands include the following: With macros, these commands can be used from action buttons, and many of them can be used at once. Brings up a targeting reticule. Here is an illustration of this basic syntax. In-Depth of how it works When a player with the addon is near a world boss that dies, the addon registers the time of the death, and calculates the spawn time. This is my World of Warcraft Mount Farming Guide for the Pandaria World bosses. Note that this is not the time since the first spell in the sequence was cast, but rather the time since the macro was last called (to cast any of the spells in the sequence). Names for buttons on each of the standard action bars are as follows, replacing the # with an appropriate number: * The BonusActionBarFrame frame replaces the ActionBarFrame frame for all Druids, Warriors, and Rogues and /click ActionButton# and /click BonusActionButton# do the same thing for these classes. Since the spell is instant, /stopcasting does not actually cancel the cast. Namely, they must be either BLP files or 24-bit/32-bit alpha uncompressed TGA files. In fact, the secure commands are the reason macro conditions were created in the first place. This macro allows you to automatically create your maximum rank water and food without needing new buttons for new ranks, in a single button. So, what are you waiting for? The WoW UI is controlled by code written with the Lua scripting language. You can also use it to keep track of your completed quests, recipes, mounts, companion pets, and titles! The next couple sections will tie up these loose ends and hopefully give you some inspiration to start you on your way. First, there is the 255 character limit (though there is a workaround in Part III); you often need to take certain shortcuts in order to get a script to fit in a macro. The following macro (on which I based my CCWarn addon) will whisper everyone in your raid to change their targets if they have the same target as you. /castsequence takes a list of spells and/or items separated by commas. Any spell that is instant and does not trigger the GCD can be followed by another cast. At the highest level, you have a set of criteria/parameter groups separated by semicolons. You can also do things that normally wouldn't be available to macros. This fact will become much more apparent when we start dealing with the /cast command and its ilk. You can also add custom icons to the list (see the Part III). Here's a generic illustration of the syntax of a single condition where everything inside angle brackets (<>) is optional. Arcane Mage: #showtooltip #show Mirror Image /cast Arcane Power /use 13 /use 14 /cast Mirror Image /script UIErrorsFrame:Clear() This casts "Arcane Power", uses any "use" trinkets you may have, then casts Mirror Image. Because of this, you cannot use a /castsequence to make a spammable macro like: Before the spell list (but always after the conditionals), you can also specify reset conditions to start the sequence over before it reaches the end. In this case you will want to use an empty set of conditions which will always evaluate to true. There are also addons that handles this, such as Raeli's Spell Announcer. We highly suggest that all of your healing spells, as well as other utility spells that can be cast on raid members … A macro is a list of slash commands. Now you will notice that the macro icon you chose has been added to the 18 boxes mentioned earlier (as much of the name as will fit is also displayed on the icon). ... By rnglbd in forum World of Warcraft Buy Sell Trade Replies: 0 Last Post: 04-29-2012, 07:25 AM. The files must follow the same guidelines for UI textures. To make this job a bit easier, we have the /castsequence command. Like /cast, its simplest form takes the name of the item you want to use: There are also a couple other forms of the /use command: This form of use allows you to use an item in the specified slot. In general, you cannot cast more than one spell with a single click of a macro. I have this fantastic all-purpose-targeting-macro for lot’s of NPCs that I want to target (and tag) quickly. Luckily the Burning Crusade patches brought us a host of new pet commands: Sends your pet to attack your target. However, this does not necessarily include the condition's parameters (described below). Unit IDs are a way to identify a particular character, mob, NPC, etc. Notice that [nohelp] does not mean the same thing as [harm]. Once you use the last entry in the list, it will reset to the beginning. This is a plus or a minus depending on your situation. Prior to patch 2.3 it was necessary to place a /stopcasting command after the instant, non-GCD spells (but not items). That last bit needs a concrete example: In this case, the key unit is focus. As shown above, MultiBarRightButton1 refers to the first button of the right-hand vertical extra action bar. To make a macro cycle through two different 'sets' of spells that should be used together, where each set can not be used at the same time (i.e trinkets with shared cooldowns) it is possible to use multiple instances of /castsequence to achieve this effect. The parameter to #show (in this case Pyroblast) works the same way as the /cast and /use commands. This also means you can put the two commands in either order and it will have the same effect. /equip simply takes an item name and will equip it to the default slot as if you had right-clicked it in one of your bags (i.e., a one-handed weapon will be equipped to your main hand). But nothing will happen when you haven't selected any target. Target Focus will, as you might guess, target the entity you have focused. You can specify any number of these conditions separated by slashes as shown. The following macro will cast Flash of Light on the unit under your mouse. Without any parameters, /focus works exactly like the key binding, setting your current target as your focus. Even if a spell fails to cast, if it would trigger the GCD, it prevents subsequent /casts in the macro from running. The following macro solves this problem: With the exception of Warriors, any class with stances (Druids, Priests with [Shadowform], Rogues with [Stealth], etc.) This assures that Arcane power and potion will be used on mirror image, while alter time will return you to a state with your procs already on. For example, you might have a really long macro that doesn't fit into 255 characters. This isn't very useful for simple macros like you've seen so far. These commands cycle through the specified type of unit. A condition like [help, nodead, @focus] means "My focus is friendly AND not dead.". The parameters depend on the command, and some commands don't take any. Since we are using [@focus], WoW will send "focus" to the /focus command. If you're happy with the spell that WoW is choosing for the feedback, you can use #showtooltip without a spell to save space in your macro. As of patch 2.3.2, the cast command toggles abilities on and off. Thats the way i'm doing this..just not with Huolon only. There can be an awful lot of confusion around how macro options work, so I will take this early opportunity to break down the general concepts behind them. For example, /target party1 will target your first party member. The value associated with the first satisfied condition will be interpreted as described below. The set of parameters begins with a colon (:) and each parameter is separated with a slash (/) that means "or." The list is split up in three parts, because it's too much to put in one macro. There is a joke about Kevin Bacon involving a macro like: Here is a brief overview of the other targeting commands: By itself, assist targets your target's target (e.g. Notice: Conditions are case-sensitive. In this case, you can specify the icon using #showtooltip as described above. to resurrect or loot them, then delete those lines). Second, you have to keep the entire script on one line. Insecure commands like chatting, emotes, etc. However, let's look at a breakdown of this macro: See that extra blank set of options and parameters? Well, simply put the cast and /p message in a macro: Note: Since the macro is executed all at once, the /p command will be issued when you start the cast, and will not care either way whether you have a valid target or whether Polymorph is on cooldown. The macro will also be automatically saved when you first try to use it or when you close the macros window. Huolon is a level 35 - 50 Rare Elite NPC that can be found in Timeless Isle. Also, TomTom doesn't automatically give you a route to follow, but it's still very useful to see exactly where all the chests are on the (mini)map. In the Serpent NPCs category. Remember that a blank set of options always evaluates to true, so that second empty parameter gets passed to /petattack if the first conditions are false. Another friend of mine, brand new to the game, decided to come along. The most basic targeting command (unsurprisingly) is /target. Write spells and items just like you see in their tooltips. Acknowledgements You must repeatedly activate the macro to use all the spells in the sequence. Note: Macros run all the commands at once. You have a command, and a set of parameters. When you are done typing your macro, click the Save button, drag the macro's icon from the grid and place it on an action button. However, these bindings don't really take full advantage of focus. In fact, you can imagine a single-spell /cast command as a macro option with one clause that has no conditions. The /cast command allows you to cast any spell from your (or your pet's) spell book by name. If you used the question mark icon, WoW will automatically update the icon to the current element of the sequence. Examples of such toggleable abilities are Stealth, Shoot or Mass Dispel (the green targeting circle). We could also have left off the "target" at the end since the /focus command defaults to your target. During the normal course of play, you aren't likely to type many slash commands that are generally useful for macros. Still, it's usually better to consistently capitalize as things appear. These commands cycle through player-controlled units. You can also append "target" to the end of any valid unit ID to arrive at that unit's target. Second, and arguably more important, there is no way to wait in a macro without freezing the game. For those of you hunting rares, here's a little help. If the target is [help] than it will use it's helpful spell. A good Hunter will only rarely need to use their melee attacks, which lets us bind all those abilities to one key that will largely go unused. 32x32, 512x128). Its main use is to implement "fall-through" logic to prevent you from continuing a macro if certain conditions are true. Open up the macro window. If you choose the question mark icon (), WoW will automatically pick an icon for your macro based on what spells or items are listed in the macro. See the previously linked references and the Mod Author Resources sticky for more information. /stopcasting removes this assumption and prevents the "Another action is in progress" error. While scripts do remain useful for quite a few purposes, you cannot use them to cast spells, use items, change your action bar page or affect your target in any way. To reiterate for clarity, the key unit is a unit you can use in [@] option that will allow you to send another unit to the command. There is. In fact, if you choose the question mark icon I mentioned earlier, the action bar will even show the icon for SW:P. "Ho, hum," you might be thinking... Why not just put the spell on your bar? Finally, it casts Polymorph on your focus. When you run this macro, the [help] condition is checked. For example, [stance] by itself means "In any stance" (useful for every class with stances except Warriors since they are always in a stance). This can be done all in one like the following: That's quite an unwieldy bit of script there. The /cancelaura command allows you to remove unwanted buffs. but with the following macro it will use selfcast when nothing is selected. For example, a Death Knight without the Horn of Winter minor glyph cannot cast Horn of Winter if a glyphed version of the buff is already on them (from another Death Knight). If the name is spelled wrong or that unit is not near you, your target will not be changed. The main point of this spell is to cast Pyroblast. Hunter attacks in World of Warcraft: Classic are separated by Melee and Ranged attacks. From the official patchnotes: /cast will toggle spells again unless the name is prefixed with an exclamation mark, e.g. Here's a simple example that uses Shield Bash in Defensive or Battle Stance, but switches into Defensive Stance if you're in Berserker: This can be simplified to pseudo-code English as "IF currently in stance 1 OR in stance 2 then use Shield Bash ELSE switch to Defensive Stance.
