Hi all,

As a newcomer I would like to say thanks to the community in regards to all things Pally tanking. It has made my life a lot simpler when coming to raiding MoP.

I have recently been playing around with my spec and the way I play things and was hoping to see what the community thinks of this macro I've been using.

#showtooltip Shield of the Righteous
/cast Holy Avenger
/cast Shield of the Righteous
/cast Word of Glory
/cast Sacred Shield
/cast Divine Protection (optional)

I'm a haste tank so I find with the 2 set bonus I always have up a 75% block chance as I'm able to refresh on WoG every 10 secs (ie., I have 5 holy power). Plus refreshing sacred shield as far as I know isn't a bad thing. I use Divine protection because of 4 set bonus.. but I understand if people would want to use that as a oh Sh*t button.

If anyone has any questions or comments I would love to hear them. Especially if you are able to tweak this even further.

What's the whole point of that macro? SotR is off the GCD and something you should be hitting some a frequent regularity. Holy Avenger is something you can use either offensively or defensively. WoG is another OHSHI button, Sacred Shield should be used somewhat regular depending on vengeance levels, and DProt should be used for certain moments depending on the fight.

I just don't understand why you'd want to put all of those abilities into one macro (and AFAIK that macro won't work if one of them won't go off). It's not like we have THAT many buttons to press, we're not Warriors!

So with modifier macros with an ability, is there any way to make the tooltip adjust to the other ability?

For example:

#showtooltip
/start attack
/cast [nomod] Crusader Strike; [mod:shift] Hammer of the Righteous
/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear ()


When I push shift, is there a way to change the icon to show HotR?

It doesn't update on its own? I would have thought it would.

In any case, you can do all macro conditionals in #showtooltip:

Code: Select all
#showtooltip [nomod] Crusader Strike; [mod:shift] Hammer of the Righteous
/startattack
/cast [nomod] Crusader Strike; [mod:shift] Hammer of the Righteous
/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear ()


Also note that /startattack doesn't have a space.

Start attack with a space has always worked for me.

And the #showtooltip mod:shift isn't working.

#showtooltip on its own should dynamically adjust. It only doesn't if you put in what spell you show the tooltip of.

...Did you select an icon from the macros menu rather than using the "?" icon?

Also, doesn't using or attempting to use CS or HotR start autoattack on its own? Think that's the case for every melee special in game.

I used the "?" icon cause it always adjusted it with the #showtooltip syntax. However, even remaking the macro with an icon doesn't dynamically change it.

Ah..got it...

while the space in /start attack will work to cast an ability, it will not allow for dynamically changing of icons as a /startattack will.

I'm still not sure why you even need /startattack in that macro.

Bygone era I suppose. I haven't really touched these macros in years.

I got a question.

I tried
Code: Select all
/cast Righteous Fury
/cancelaura Righteous Fury


as well as:

Code: Select all
/cancelaura Righteous Fury
/cast Righteous Fury


which basically should do the same.

give me button to flawlessly put on and off RF as needed.

problem: I can't use the macro during a GCD. even tho cancelaura as well as cast RF should not be on the GCD....

a friend of mine tested it as well and nope. does not work.

now this really bugs me because on HMs you sometimes just CAN'T wait for the GCD to end to cancel/turn on RF.

I want to flawlessly play my rotation and cancel/cast at the same time.

I believe RF can't be applied during a GCD but it doesn't cause a GCD of its own, so when you want to turn RF on you'll have to hit that macro just before using your next ability then you should only waste a fraction of a second.

Last tier I used that macro but like you found it somewhat frustrating as you can't spam it.

I've now switched to having a dedicated cancel aura bind and RF macro'd in with taunt.
That's working ok though having a shift mod macro that cancels RF when pressed with shift and turns RF on when pressed without a mod might be better.

This is the macro command for the new "summon random favorite mount" button. If for whatever reason you want to include it in a macro.
Code: Select all
/script C_MountJournal.Summon(0)

I'm not sure how useful it is, being a script and not a regular macro command. It doesn't quite play well with instant cast spells.
