Divine Shield / Divine Sacrifice macro

Postby sherck » Mon Feb 01, 2010 11:32 pm

I know there is one in the macro sticky, but it does not seem to be working for me.

I do:

/castsequence reset=12 Divine Shield, Divine Sacrifice

On the first press, I get Divine Shield, but on the 2nd press (waiting for the GCD to go through), I get big red letters saying "you cannot do that yet."

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
sherck

Divine Sacrifice is on the GCD. You have to wait till the GCD is over to hit the button a second time. Or you could just mash it until it goes through, I guess.

There's a slightly more elegant macro if you just want the Divine Guardian effect:

Code: Select all
#show
/cast Divine Sacrifice
/in 0.5 /script CancelUnitBuff("player","Divine Sacrifice")


Alternatively, if you just want to mash the button, this will work:
Code: Select all
#show
/cancelaura Divine Sacrifice
/cast Divine Sacrifice

I just saw that macro quoted in an article on WowInsider with it attributed to you, Theckhd.

I don't know if other people find this, but in the presumption that people here are tankadins you don't need to bubble when divine sacrificing ever since the rework. The damage done to us is so small when I do it during purgent blight on festergut I don't think the healers even notice I'm taking any extra damage. I reserve bubble for hand of sacrifice on the other tank, if I need to. For that fight anyway.

But maybe the macro is for rets/healers. That would make sense for them.

Yeah, sorry. Should have stated up front that I was Holy. So I need the shield or else I get to absorb like 14k damage over 0.00001 seconds and then it breaks without the shield. :mrgreen:

So I am not positive what theckhd wrote is good for me since I need the shield first.

Are you sure you copied it correctly? That macro is exactly what I use, and it works perfectly for me.

When I get home, I'll check that I didn't make a typo here or something.

<edit> Apparently "/in" requires the Ace framework. If you don't have an Ace3 addon, it won't work properly.

pretty sure i copied it correctly.

Code: Select all
#show
/dxerb 6 Raidwall
/cast Divine Sacrifice
/in 0.5 /script CancelUnitBuff("player","Divine Sacrifice")


the only thing I built in afterwards, was the timer for Deus Vox Bossmods. With or without it. It doesn't work. Ace3 is installed and activated

Don't do what I did and freak out because it wasn't working... turns out I wasn't in a party. LOL. You have to be within the range of a party member for this to work. Just figured i'd throw this out there.

Lol, I think that just answered my original question. I was not in a party either when trying to make the macro work. The macro may be working just fine, I just did not do it at the right time (in a party).

I will try again. THANKS !
