The two most popular posts on the blog are my very obscurely written more personal notes than blogging material posts on writing a macro and macro syntax. I do use quite a few macros for various things and with the changes I am planning to make to my N52te key bindings shortly, I have a feeling I will be using that many more as I will effectively loose 32 buttons.
Spell rotation macro’s are something I have avoided as I feel that they remove part of the decision making process for me that I can’t afford to loose as a healer. I want to be able to decide on the spot which spell is required and not have to worry that it’s tied up somewhere on a second or third click of a cast sequence spell rotation. I don’t think I’m ever going to use it as a healer. Mouseover spells on the other hand, I couldn’t play without.
My standard macros look like this:
/cast [target=mouseover, help] Spell name; [help] Spell name; Spell name
I use it for Lifebloom, Wild Growth, Nourish, Rejuvenation, Abolish Poison and Remove Curse. The macro allows me to cast the spell on my mouseover target, if I don’t have one it will cast the spell on my selected target and if I don’t have that either, it’ll cast it on myself. Perfect.
