MACRO: Replacement for /startattack

Postby HinataDestiny » Sun Feb 28, 2010 5:20 pm

Looking for a command that has the same effect since they took away /startattack

The command no longer works. I tried it in every spelling and separation of the words. I did not misspell it.

Works fine here. And yes, doublechecked it with an ability that does not natively /startattack itself.

Code: Select all
#showtooltip Ability
/startattack
/cast Ability

/startattack definitely works. I keep fucking up my gouges because of it.

It is indeed Backstab. I ended up just taking it off BS and keeping it on Hemo.

Kysu, does that turn off sound whenever you use HotR?

It probably does. I find the HotR sfx to be the loudest and most annoying of all our abilities. It's like hammering a metal barrel for god's sake. What I would like to know is if that constant on-off (or off-on if you like) of the sound has any negative impact on the performance of the game.

It does not, to my knowledge, have any negative impact. My shaman uses those parameters for Stormstrike, Lava Lash, and Lightning Bolt because they are tied to my trinkets and I don't like hearing the "That Item is on Cooldown" sound over and over again.

Do you leave error speech on for other reasons?

Also I really need to replace Sindragosa's speech files with something ... non-stupid.

Not the speech, the sound. There's an annoying sound played when you try to use an item that's on cooldown. I actually have error speech and all error messages turned off.
