Code: Select all
#showtooltip cdname;
/cast Avengers Shield;
/cast cdname;

That should cast avengers shield first if it's procced or is available.
Replace cdname with the spell you want to cast.

If it fails to cast the second one (seperate global cooldown) try putting them on the same line:
Code: Select all
#showtooltip cdname;
/cast Avengers Shield /cast cdname;

I would advise against this as it stops the choice you get when you choose to wait a few more global cooldowns before casting it.

That macro will stop if the AS is not available and ignore the second cast. And if it is available it'll cast AS and nothing after unless it's an off-GCD ability.

Isnt the problem with that macro that if AS do procc, and your spamming the button, it will actually que up the other ability to the rotation (before AS atually got reset CD) and cast it anyway even if AS procced?

If AS is not available the whole macro should stop. Macros like this only work on no-GCD abilities.

Would you be able to do something with a castsequence macro that resets when AS cd is up?

I pulled this from the 4.x macro thread, and with some tweaks, maybe it could work?

Code: Select all
/castsequence reset=combat Judgement, Holy Wrath, Shield of the Righteous, Judgement, Avenger's Shield, Shield of the Righteous, Judgement, Consecration, Shield of the Righteous

It wouldn't take GC procs into account.

There used to be a way to futz this by spamming /castrandom, but I think they changed the behaviour of /castrandom to get "stuck" on any cast that failed precisely to defeat this kind of macro.

hey thanks i found one that works pretty well. might not be 100% as its from memory right now.
#showtooltip
/startattack
/castsequence reset=8 Crusader Strike, Judgement, Crusader Strike, Holy Wrath, Crusader Strike, Shield Of Righteous
/cast divine protection
/use !avengers shield
/use !hammer of wrath

i use that for most instances and take out avengers shield for when i need interupts and switch out CS for Hammer of Righteous for AOE fights

Using that macro is a terrible idea.

It also won't work. Again, it'll just stick on the first line with the castsequence, and possibly also use divine protection on cooldown (and probably never when you need it). It'll never cast AS or HoW.

Blizzard specifically designed macros not to make decision for you. Learn to play or give up.
