    Default Need help with trio macro for classic.

    Hi guys,

    I'm never been able to fully grasp some of the scripting with macros. I have a new Apex 350 keyboard by steel series, which gives something like 10 macro keys on the left of the keyboard, and then another second set of 12 F1-F12 style keys on the top of the keyboard. You can also toggle macro layouts, giving yourself three different setups at the click of a button.




    This seems pretty cool. I can program each key on the left to correspond to the right action bars in wow. I intend to set my mounts to the same button, set buffs, food, etc.

    I have to figure out how to make certain buffs and skills cast correctly though.

    My team will consists of a Pally, Warlock and Mage.
    I would like to be able to hit a button and the pally casts Blessing of Wisdom on the other two targets, while the mage also casts Arcane Intellect on the Pally and lock. I'm thinking a cast sequence is teh way to go, with me just tapping the key twice or telling the keyboard to do a second delayed key press.

    I need help with the cast sequence though.

    Pally macro
    /castsequence [@pally] reset=9 Blessing of Sanctuary
    /castsequence [@mage] reset=9 Blessing of Wisdom
    /castsequence [@lock] reset=9 Blessing of Wisdom

    Mage. (Thanks Ualaa
    #show Arcane Intellect
    /castsequence [target=player] reset=9 Arcane Intellect, Mage Armor, Null
    /castsequence [target=Pally] reset=9 Arcane Intellect, Null
    /castsequence [target=Lock] reset=9 Arcane Intellect, Null

    Warlock:
    #show Fel Armor
    /castsequence [target=player] reset=9 Fel Armor, Null
    /castsequence [target=pally] reset=9 See Invisible, Null
    /castsequence - somehow make my imp cast fire shield....

    If I set this macro up and bound it to the same action bar button, then linked that to the extra keyboard button, I should be able to tap that button once, or three times depending on how it's set up. Since all three toons are using a 3 sequence cast, they should all theoretically buff each other and then move on.

    Is this correct thinking or should I just hope there is a classic addon that can do this?

    I also need a macro to cast blizzard and rain of fire on top of my pally. I think that one will be easy though.

    as it is now - you can`t cast blizzard or rain of fire on top of of another play via marcos - only yourself or Cursor location.

    Target Cursor Location
    /cast [@cursor] ABILITYNAME

    Target Player Location
    /cast [@player] ABILITYNAME

    Player & Cursor Modifier
    #showtooltip Sigil of Flame
    /cast [mod:alt, @player][@cursor][] ABILITYNAME

    Help/Harm Mouseover Macro
    /cast [@mouseover,nodead,exists,harm][nodead,harm] HARM_ABILITY_NAME; [@mouseover,nodead,exists][help][]HELP_ABILITY_NAME

    Mouseover Macro
    /cast [@mouseover] ABILITYNAME

    I'll check that video out. My other option, since my main would be a holy/prot pally running into the crowd of mobs, was to target his target and cast blizzad/rof on that target. The only downside ( if it works) is that if that target dies, I believe the spell may stop channeling.

    I'm in the process of leveling alts on retail to test these ideas out. I'm at level 14 right now.

    One last option I had was to pull mobs with the warlock using instant cast corruption. I would lead them back towards my two alts and use Consecration with Righteous Fury on the pally. My hopes are that the threat from Consecrate would pull the mobs. At that point, I can just aoe on top of my group.

    -----------------------

    Hmm, in that video he uses the @player macro and it works.

    [@player] is the same as LIVE and can only be cast on "you" the player, not a target/party member

    There's no need to PM me about this (please read my signature), and it's exactly as Tin and ebony have pointed out:

    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.
