Amazing Feral druid macros PVP

The feral macro i came up with is amazing and wanted to share it. This macro is mashable and will do the following. I hope you like.

1. put you into cat form from any form
2. Prowl if not in combat
3. Feral charge
4. Pounce if stealth
5. Maim if not in stealth

(Cat form macro)
#showtooltip Feral Charge(Cat Form)
/cancelform [nostance:3]
/cast [nostance] Cat Form; [stance:3, nostealth, nocombat] Prowl
/cast [stance:3] Feral Charge(Cat Form)
/cast [stealth] Pounce(Cat Form); [nostealth] Maim(Cat Form)

This is my bear form macro that will.
1. put you into bear out of any form
2. feral charge in bear form
3. enrage and then bash if mashed

(Bear form macro)
#showtooltip Feral Charge(Bear Form)
/cancelform [nostance:1]
/cast [nostance] Bear Form; [stance:1] Feral Charge
/cast Enrage(Bear Form)
/cast Bash(Bear Form)

I also have a remove corruption macro I like to use, helps free up keybinds.
1. Roots enemy
2. removes corruption on friendly

/cast [harm] Entangling Roots; [help] Remove Corruption

This is too cool to not bump. I'll test it out with my current array of buttons-to-be-mashed and we'll see how long before I break it (because I can even break a /chicken spammer).

/cast [nostance:3] Shadowmeld(Racial)

Found these macros quite helpful, and they greatly reduce the buttons used...

Strictly for Cat Form

Opening Charge
/castsequence reset=5 Feral Charge(Cat Form), Ravage(Cat Form)

Opening Pounce
/castsequence reset=5 Pounce, Shred, Shred,

Melee Button
/castsequence reset=5 Faerie Fire (Feral)(Feral), Rake(Cat Form), Claw, Mangle(Cat Form), Ferocious Bite(Cat Form)

You will eventually run out of energy, so I keep the Tiger's Fury button close by.

If you find you are losing the fight, and need flight...

The Getaway
/castsequence reset=5 Nature's Grasp, Remove Corruption, Rejuvenation, Lifeblood, Remove Corruption, Cat Form, Survival Instincts, Dash

If not a herbalist, you will have to remove Lifeblood.

Bad. Absolutely WASTES TF, and there's no point to a skull bash right at the start usually, so extra bad. You'll be out rougly 60 total energy with that macro, counting the pounce.



Opening Charge
/castsequence reset=5 Feral Charge(Cat Form), Ravage(Cat Form)

Opening Pounce
/castsequence reset=5 Pounce, Shred, Shred,

Melee Button
/castsequence reset=5 Faerie Fire (Feral)(Feral), Rake(Cat Form), Claw, Mangle(Cat Form), Ferocious Bite(Cat Form)


The charge one isn't bad, but not really great. From there it just deteriorates.

Opening sucks, cause shred is significantly buffed once you get mangle and rip up.

Then the melee button!!!!!!!! First off, never rake before mangle. You lose 30% rake damage by doing that (for one tick only). Then claw?! CLAW?! I'm sorry, I'm just so shocked that ANYONE would SUGGEST using CLAW for feral pvp!. Then, FB. Why FB there? You don't get rip up, and you throw off the rotation.

/castsequence macros are almost always ill advised.

/cancelaura all your forms
and
focus/dispell party macros
are all you need.


Those are the more 'required' ones, but I personally have a ton of macro's just to cut down on bar space. (without macro's, I have officially used up every single button slot for bartender, with paging for forms.)

I appreciate the criticism, and will take your advice, new to macros. But what would be more helpful than the critique would be to drop some "better" macros of your own.

I have looked a few places and what I have seen posted aren't all that good.

Don't you have to get your opponent bleeding to get the maximum effect of Mangle?

Again, all you really need for serious pvp are focus macro's and cancel form macro's (or just keybound cat form/bear form, which I have at an easily clickable spot). Any cast sequence macro means you are inferior to a pvper without them, cause they really really suck for pretty much anything, especially in PvP. Here are a few of my addons:

#showtooltip
/cast [mod:shift][@focus][Form:3] Skull Bash(Cat Form)
/cast[mod:shift][@focus][Form:1] Skull Bash(Bear Form)
/cast [nomod][form:3] Skull Bash(Cat Form)
/cast [nomod][form:1] Skull Bash(Bear Form)

If you hold shift, it will interrupt your focus (HUGELY important for arena's.). If you don't, it will interrupt your target. This macro is probably one of the most important macro's you will every use for serious play.

#showtooltip
/cast [nomod] Shred; Mangle(Cat Form)

Simple macro, just hold any modifier key and it will mangle. I used this before I got my Razer Naga, and it worked great for saving a bar slot and being functional. Be careful about Shift+1 though, cause it's auto bound to switch to bar one with the basic blizzard UI. To use shift with this, you need to disable that in Key Bindings. I found this out the hard way, so don't be like me!

#showtooltip
/cast [form:1] Feral Charge(Bear Form); Feral Charge(Cat Form)

Another simple one that just saves a button, it's an all in one feral charge button.

#showtooltip
/cast [mod:shift][@focus, exists, nodead, harm] Cyclone
/cast [@mouseover]@target, exists, nodead, harm] Cyclone
/cast [mod:ctrl][@target, exists, nodead, harm] Cyclone

Basically, hold shift, and it will cyclone your focus. Don't hold anything, and it will cyclone your mouseover first, then your target, or if you hold control, only your target.

Don't you have to get your opponent bleeding to get the maximum effect of Mangle?


If the person who told you that ever makes an attempt to give you advise again, punch him in the face.

The only thing mangle does (apart from damage, which isn't effected by bleeds on the target) is apply a 30% bleed. When you rake, it 'tick's right on the application, so you lose 30% of that tick by not having mangle up.

Edit: Actually, I think you are confusing shred and mangle. To get the max shred effect, you must have the target mangled and bleeding.

You have that reversed. Mangle buffs all bleed effects (Rake/Rip)
