(( Greetings and salutations, fellow denizens of Cenarion Circle. As many of you are aware, many in the RP community have expressed a desire to reinstate the usage of what I lovingly refer to as the "Guild Macro of DOOOOOOOM".

I have been coordinating an effort to collect brief recruitment blurbs from our active RP guilds (see http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2592644068 for more info) and have been asked by some to share the resultant macros with others, so that the DOOOOOOOM-iness may be shared with newcomers when I am not logged in. Hence, this thread.

You will find here an archive of the macros I use, a quick rundown on the "how to" of making your own macros (Ror this specfic purpose, mind you. I do not claim to be an expert in the field of actually useful, game mechanic related macros.) so that you may use them as well, and a place to discuss the evolution and implementation of this practice.

I certainly hope you enjoy my humble offerings herein.))

    The "Why" and "How" of these macros:

    Here you will find a brief explanation of why these macros are laid out the way they are and how to implement them successfully.

  • The why:
  • Many of you will notice that each of the macros begins with "/6". The reason for this is simple. Macros can contain, at most, 255 characters. That's not a lot of real estate for a guild ad, right? Additionally, if you are in a dungeon or a BG and are popping the macro during a lull, you don't really want it showing up in /party or /bg chat, right? Takes too long to explain away the mistell at that point.

    Hence, /6. Technically, you'd want it to say either /AllianceOOC or /HordeOOC, but those take up quite a few characters on their own. I, personally, have set the global OOC channels to channel number 6 on every one of my characters. Makes it less likely that I will post something in the wrong channel (which I have done, much to my chagrin, I admit) and keeps things nice and consistent. I'm not saying that your OOC channels must also be assigned to chat channel number 6, but you'll want to change that number to the corresponding channel number for your particular set-up.

    You may also notice that most of these blurbs do not contain "contact information". This is intentional. The purpose of these macros is not to do the recruiting for the guilds listed, but to inform "new-to-CC" roleplayers of some of the available options for RP guilds.


  • The how:
  • I have set each of the guilds as their own, seperate macro, but titled all of them similarly. I use "gMac (first 4 letters of guild name)" to title each. For example, the macro for <AAMS> is titled "gMac AAMS" and the macro for <Pia Presidium> is titled "gmac PiaP". I also suggest that you use the same icon for each of the macros, but an icon that you don't use for any of your other macros. This makes it easier to quickly identify them in your macro menu.

    Now that all the macros are written and organized, it's relatively simple to drop the DOOOOOOMiness into the OOC channel.

  • 1: Simply open your macro menu (by typing "/macro" into your chat window)
  • 2: Drag the first listed macro into an empty action bar slot
  • 3: Click the icon, and "PRESTO!", the macro pops up into the OOC channel
  • 4: Drag the next macro on top of the macro you just activated
  • 5: Click elsewhere on the screen to get rid of the first macro
  • 6: Wait a few seconds (time for the interested party to read what you just posted)
  • 7: Click the newly placed macro icon for the next guild
  • 8: Repeat steps 4 through 8 until all guilds' macros have been posted

    Verogoth is out of game and unable to update this unfortunately x.x And updating it sorely needs!

    However, since this thread is not directly linked to his version of the Macro, I felt that not only could I use it as he did, but that it would be a good way to show that I am not the only one who's done this.

    I miss you, Verogoth!

    EDIT: I meant uh...you know what I mean. I use this thread too.
