Dear blizzard,plz listen me this thread.

We're going to look into the possibility of adding more macro slots. Not something I can guarantee for 5.4, but we'll see what we can do.

On a larger scale, we'd really like to find ways to make the macro system smarter. Right now, it's not uncommon to see players with several different macros for raid markers, target switches, and so forth, and we'd like to look into some ways to address that. Again, not likely to see any major changes there in the short term, but we recognize that the macro system could use some updates. It's on our radar :)

In game system that replaced mouseover macros (a.k.a. What we currently call "Clique") would go a long way towards this.

The WoW API lets you create a near infinite number of macros.

The code for it hasn't been changed by patches for years and you can do it without addons (though you're wasting your time), so you don't need to wait for Blizzard to add more boxes for you.

If you're smart enough to make massive amounts of complicated macros, then you're probably smart enough to learn the like 5 lines of code you'd need to type to create an infinite number of macros.

There's probably even a way to make a tiny script that changed the Blizzard macro interface so that you could create endless amounts of macros too, but that depends on how they store the macros and such.

What about a system that automatically put a marker on the person carrying the taint? ;)

Built-in clique would be awesome, yeah.

And yes, addons let you have unlimited macros of unlimited size. It would be nice for the default UI to catch up. It's not like enormous macros would be exploitative, macros can't actually do much.

IIRC secure (in-combat) macros are restricted to 995 characters or something like that.

Superdupermacro addon allows macros of unlimited size. I actually haven't made a macro over 995 characters so you may be right about the in-combat restrictions, but nobody seems to have complained about it in the addon's comments.

Allow multiple focus targets.... focus1, focus2, focus3, etc.

We already have arena and boss frames to adress that.

99% of the community want more macro space. That means just do it Blizzard don't think about it, don't 'talk' it over, just listen to the customers who pay your wages and make the change. More macro space simple!

MaxMacroSlots=32

to

MaxMacroSlots=64

Don't hardcode a specific number of slots.. or make it cap out at something way higher, ie 256, 65535, etc. The macros are stored locally, so why not let us decide how many macros we want to be able to utilize? =)

Boss frames don't always show the things you'd like to be able to watch. For example, I would kill for two focus frames on Heroic Dark Animus, to be able to easily target the two Massives for Doom refreshes.

Most nameplate addons cover just that

Screw macro slots, make more void storage/bank/bag slots or make WoW housing like in skyrim to store more crap we like to keep around such as Xmog gear.
