i never use macros and i do just fine some one give me a good reason why i should

Because you're human and the tab-target system isn't intuitive.

Ahhhhh....green circle thingy = reticule.

Yes, that is correct. As for the "!", its to keep toggle spells (stealth, rain of fire, blizzard, freeze) from immediately being canceled because you're spamming the button.

I am looking a way to use the same button to cast Ice Lance and Frostfire Bolt... But i need to use Frostfire Bolt only when it instant cast...

Is there a way to create a macro to use a particular spell only when we are under the effect of a buff?

/cast Ice Lance
/Profit


Ice Lance hits for 4k, 16k crit on frozen targets without FoF, and with FoF maybe 22-25k depending on various things such as trinket procs and what not.


i can hit 21k with it :) it all depends on your hit, crit rating etc

One I like to use in PvP for arcane is

Instant Cast Polymorph


/cast Presence of Mind
/stop casting Presence of Mind
/cast Polymorph

EDIT: put a space it between "Instant Cast Polymorph" and first line of macro, so ppl don't think that's part of the macro.

I use this for every character:

With an eye icon or something

/focus [@mouseover,exists] []

This macro will focus your mouseover if you have one. If you don't, it will focus your target. If you have neither a mouseover nor a target, it clears your focus.

Same principle works for Focus targets and Polymorph or Counterspell.

Counterspell focus if exists. If not, counterspell mouseover if exists. If not, counterspell target. Same for sheep.

#showtooltip
/cast [@focus,exists][@mouseover,exists][] Counterspell



And this is the macro I've used for a water elemental forever, I don't know why you guys make it complicated

#showtooltip
/cast [pet] Freeze; Summon Water Elemental

#showtooltip I WIN
/cast roll face onto keyboard freezing the entire world of Azeroth
/cast Ice Lance
/jump (to jump a charge in case a warrior gets too close before he is frozen or in case a DK tries to Death Grip you)
/dance
/yell LOL Blizz loves me!



That's the only one you need this expansion.

I came up with a spiffy one. You start casting frostbolt and the green targetting circle for pet's freeze comes up. Land it on the target before your frostbolt is released, if you need

#showtooltip Frostbolt
/cast Freeze
/cast Frostbolt

Just put /pet attack into all your spells helps to make sure your pet isnt off bothering some healer when it should be within it's freeze spell's range.

just shift modifier presence of mind into arcane blast and polymorph, that way if you want an instant polymorph shift click ur polymorph if u want an instant arcane blast shift click arcane blast...

2 questions...

What is the significance of putting in [target=focus] in the macros...I don't really get what focuses are for exactly. Also, why put the ''!'' in front of the spell casts, I don't get the explanation that was given...''- Pet Freeze, just adds ! to any target area ability''

Actually, its not a macro and i use bartender add on wich makes this easy but i digress, I simply and my bottom most actionbarb i hotkeyed slowfall (.) and my ground mount (Ctrl, .) my OTHER ground mount (Shift,.) and my flying mount (Alt,.) Again, not a macro but it works for me at least. maybe itll work for you. :D

the mount/slowfall macro doesn't seem to work for me, unless i actually mouseclick the macro key. otherwise, it will only slowfall if mounted and shift is not held down. thoughts?
