It's the thought that counts, not how many people die because of it.

updated, there were some conditionals on setting and clearing focus that aren't useful in an MD macro

I'd like to put in a plug for my preferred method, which sets focus on Shift, rather than clearing it. My logic is that it's easier in a combat situation to select your intended MD target and shift-click, rather than shift-click to clear your focus, then target the person you want to MD. Less clicks/keypresses = faster response time.

Code: Select all

#showtooltip
/focus [mod:shift]
/clearfocus [target=focus,noexists][mod:shift,noexists]
/cast [target=focus,help][] Misdirection
This macro has the advantage of allowing you to choose not to set your focus, and just Misdirect on whomever you're targeting. It will also act correctly if you focus a hostile unit. You could further refine it to allow you to set your focus without casting Misdirection, perhaps using ctrl:

Code: Select all

#showtooltip
/focus [mod:shift/ctrl]
/clearfocus [target=focus,noexists][mod:shift/ctrl,noexists]
/cast [target=focus,help,nomod:ctrl][nomod:ctrl] Misdirection
