DP cuts your healing done by 50%. It says right in the tooltip :P

This is why many people have a /cancelaura Divine Plea in their word of glory macro, on the theory that if you need it enough for DP->Heal, you don't care about the longer term mana regeneration from Divine Plea.

This, I use;

I'm pretty sure that macro would have to be pressed twice to actually remove Divine Plea. The second line is being sent before Divine Plea actually becomes active.

That's the point of it actually, a single press uses DP and if it's for SotR or Inq that's all I do, free mana is free, a quick double tap of the keybind gets the HP then removes the heal debuff/mana regen aura if needed for a WoG.

Really, use this one instead. That way you can just press dp and wog regardless of circumstance. no variables.

If you do that, you have to incorporate everything that the WoG spell implies that a "/cast Word of Glory" macro doesn't, such as the ability to alt-cast it on yourself while targeting a friendly player.

I prefer the twice-to-cancel macro, myself.

Code: Select all
/cancelaura Divine Plea
/cast [@player,mod:alt]Word of Glory; [@mouseover,help,nodead]Word of Glory


So something like this then? with alt it casts on the player, else on a friendly, not dead mouseover target, after cancelling Divine Plea.

On second thoughts, could one use a castsequence macro that looks a bit like this to make it a true one-button macro?

Code: Select all
/cancelaura Divine Plea
/castsequence Divine Plea, [@player,mod:alt]Word of Glory; [@mouseover,help,nodead]Word of Glory

Suppose I was never in a situation where i targeted a friendly player and wanted to heal myself during tanking. Comes down to preference I suppose :) .

Yeah you could use alt mod in the code as well. I would advice against cast sequence, it's unreliable, or maybe I just suck at it.

"/cast Word of Glory" with no conditions works exactly like just having the spell on your bar and hitting that. Including if you have a self-cast key bound, which is what you seem to be saying.


Also, the examples above don't need to use the spell name for every condition. Waste of character space in a macro, you can just list multiple conditions.
/cast [@player,mod:alt][@mouseover,exists,help,nodead,nomod:alt][] Word of Glory

Do you really need to specify nomod:alt in the second condition?
