Warrior intercept macro

Post by Tanara » Mon Jul 30, 2007 8:31 pm

I was wondering if anyone had the ability to create a macro that enabled me to either have me target my target's target, and use the intercept ability on it. Either that or have someones name set in the macro so I would just need to push the button and intercept that persons target. Any ideas if this is possible?

/cast [target=Kalissa-target] Intercept

That would use Intercept on my target. Note the use of "-target" instead of "target", this is due to the use of a character name. Extending it further would go Kalissa-target-target-target (etc), though I doubt you would have any use for that.

Note that using names for targeting arguments only works if that person is in your group/raid.

** stolen from my super healing macro thread and modified for you **

#showtooltip
/cast [help,nodead] [target=targettarget,help,nodead] [] Intercept
It's the thought that counts, not how many people die because of it.

/cast [help,nodead] [target=targettarget,help,nodead] [] Intercept

I believe the word you are looking for is "harm" and that is needlessly complex :P

/cast [harm] [target=targettarget] Intercept

would be what he needs :)

In fact, Kalissa, the [nodead] portion of the clause avoids accidentally attempting to Intercept a dead target. However, if your current target is dead, it won't be able to also have a target, so it makes little net difference.

With mine:

Living Enemy Target: Intercept target
Dead Enemy Target: Attempt to Intercept, get "Target is dead" error message
Friendly Target with Target: Intercept Target's Target, getting appropriate error message if targettarget is invalid
Friendly Target without Target: no action

The friendly situations happen whether my target is dead or alive because dead targets actually can have targets, otherwise MT windows wouldn't be able to show postmortem targeting. :)
