Today, I’d like to share a couple of neat macros sent in by a couple of readers. These have actually been sitting in my inbox for a couple of weeks due to slackerliness, but they’re no less awesome for it!
Vreenash’s Wipe Recovery Macro
This macro was submitted by Vreenash of Dragonblight (US) and can aid in the use of Rebirth as a method of wipe recovery (as opposed to wipe prevention) by notifying the lucky recipient of your combat rez that they should wait until it’s safe to accept the rez:
/p =/\= %t has been given wipe protection =/\=
/script SendChatMessage("!!!DO NOT ACCEPT REZ YET!!! You have been give Battle Rez for party wipe recovery", "WHISPER", nil, UnitName("target"))
It may be worth noting that there was a time that I was unable to use Rebirth on a group mate without the dialog poofing if everyone in the party died. Vreenash confirms, however, that she’s successfully employed this macro as a form of wipe recovery, so give it a try!
Tildir’s Cower Macro
Tildir of Moonglade (US) points out that, with Wrath’s change to Furor, a Restoration Druid with 1 point in the ability will instantly gain 20 Energy when shifting into Cat Form. Conveniently, 20 Energy is all that is required by the Cat Form ability, Cower:
This ability permanently reduces your threat by 3474 at Rank 6. The only downside is that it requires you to be within melee range of your target. Nonetheless, it could be useful if used when a mob rockets toward you, especially if the new and improved Shadowmeld is on cooldown.
/cast [nostance] Cat Form
/castsequence Cower, Tree of Life
The above macro will pull you out of Tree of Life and switch you into Cat Form if you’re in caster form the first time it’s pressed. The second press will activate Cower, and the third will switch back into Tree of Life.
Thank you to both Vreenash and Tildir! I’m a huge fan of macros like the ones listed above!
