Macroealla...

Post by Heartwood » Wed Oct 01, 2008 12:36 pm

Lealla, I understand that macro code can't do conditionals currently or at least has very limited ability. A poster at Tankspot.com had wanted to do something along the following:

if (revenge available)
... cast revenge
... queue up HS
... if (SS available)
....... cast SS


Fairly sure it can't be done, but thought I'd bounce it off you first. It would make for incredibly efficient tanking, but would be a little mindless.

Nope, cannot be done. Spell availability (whether from cooldowns or other conditions) is not a valid macro condition. This is one of those things that Blizzard explicitly does not want us doing.

The only way you can merge these attacks in a macro is if they are not on the global cooldown. Heroic Strike is a toggle, so it can be combined with other abilities, but if Revenge and Shield Slam are on the GCD, you can't have them both in the same macro without conditionals.

Thanks.

Personally, I'm glad for this limited functionality in macros or most classes would simply be hitting a single button for most fights.

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