Voodoo Gnomes: the ULTIMATE min(iature)/max tool??

Postby Invisusira » Tue Feb 02, 2010 4:10 am

So I was messing around with Tiny Voodoo Mask in ICC the other day, and discovered that you can pop it before you pull and then swap your regular trinket back in... while still keeping your new friends. So I made the following macro:

Code: Select all
/equip Tiny Voodoo Mask
/use Tiny Voodoo Mask
/equip Corroded Skeleton Key


It's a two-hit macro. First hit equips the gnomes. Once the trinket-swap cooldown is over, hitting it again simultaneously summons forth your powerful allies and then puts your regular trinket back on, assuming you haven't hit the boss yet.

Perhaps you are unimpressed. Perhaps you are raising your eyebrow. Well, IMAGINE:
SEVENTY-FIVE GNOMES. It is enough to bring tears to my eyes, and perhaps get a couple people disconnected. I told my raid to go start farming ZA.

Theckd, I would like a full report on the effectiveness of this strategem, preferably with pretty graphs.

Noticed this a few months ago...Always forgot to test if it works with the netherwing ally too

Think of 75 gnomes + 25 drakes.... :twisted:

Now that I think of it, I seem to remember that there's a shared cooldown between these trinkets. :?

Wowhead shows a lot of things (pumpkins and peasants included) share cooldown with the voodoos, but the netherwing allies don't seem to be on the list!

So we need a macro to equip:
Voodoo trinket
Netherwing trinket
HHM sword

and then use all three and swap back to our regular gear.

I don't really want to go back to ZA to farm the voodoo trinket though :/

But this just might be cool enough to make me do it.

Invis, I have something you must do.

When you get to arthas, you MUST summon your gnomes, and at least get a SS of you and the gnomes charing him. It MUST be done.
