Divine Shield Macro

Postby Aurica » Fri Jul 20, 2007 7:24 pm

Hi all

I tried searching for the DS macro but I can't seem to find it.
I remembered there might be one that casts DS and immediately cancels it. Does anyone know that macro?

Any help would be appreciated.

Yep, that's where I've got mine =)

I added a /cancelaura Blessing of Protection to the start of it also for maximum immunity-cancelling goodness.

It removes the specified buff.

/cancelaura Divine Shield removes divine shield...kinda like rightclicking the buff on your screen

Ahhh.. I'm new to the pala, so it's just to dispell all and then be back at normal?

It only dispells one buff (the one you specifiy). And the buff you dispell has to be a beneficial buff (aura, blessings, divine shield, PW: Fort, etc)

No I meant it's to cast Divine Shield to dispell all buffs and then dispell Divine Shield to be back at normal

First time you press it it tries to cancel your devine shield - which is not there, so nothing happens. Then it casts devine shield.

Second time you press it it will cancel your devine shield (which is now up) then try to cast devine shield - which is on cooldown so it just cancels the shield.

"/cancelaura SPELLNAME" can be used to cancel any buff - but just the one specified in the macro - it won't cancel all buffs.

aye - its our instant cleanse all, remove fear, remove crazy debuff ticket - just make sure u spam it (or at the very least realize you have to hit it twice) otherwise the boss will see you bubbled and start going on a rampage. but the second your bubble goes down he should go back to ya.

oo good call lore didnt even think about putting that on there...theres been once or twice where i accidently bop'd myself... >-> <-< and not been able to as efficiently cancel it...couldnt think fast enough to instantly rebuff another blessing >-<

Thanks SO much for this. I was searching for a while for a macro like this but gave up a while back - eventually thought you just couldn't cancel buffs this way. There really is a macro for everything :D

Speaking of stacking lines in a macro, I have one that goes

/cast Holy Shield
/cast Figurine of the Colossus

Hit it once when holy shield isn't up, and up goes HS.
Hit it when HS is up, and pop goes the trinket.

I find it useful. Have to pay attention to cooldowns to prevent accidental trinket popping, but it's handy and a better alternative to having the trinket on its own action button.

yeah actually i have that macro for that trinket as well as the adamantite one - have they changed the figurine's cd trigger? it used to trigger a 10 second cd when you popped holy shield, so i actually had mine macroed to go off *before* my hs, and havent bothered checking to see if they fixed that
