BM hunter leveling macro

Hunter
Hi all just thought I'd post my macro for others to use. It's been working nicely for me while leveling up but feel free to offer advice to make it better.


#showtooltip
/petattack
/castsequence reset=target Hunter's mark, Concussive Shot, Serpent Sting, Steady Shot, Widow Venom, Kill Command, Steady Shot
/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear
I has advice! Don't use one button macro's....

Also why would you serpent sting and widow's venom on a mob that doesn't live long enough for them to matter?
Serpent sting should only be used on elite mobs or mobs with an unusual amount of health (ie something that is much higher than you). Otherwise it's not good use of focus.
Widow venom doesn't do damage and shouldn't be used unless something is constantly healing itself.
Concussive shot doesn't do damage and shouldn't be used unless you are kiting or just pulled aggro off your pet and it is running at you.

One button macros technically no longer work. Also from a PVE and PVP point of view, it isn't recommended to use since you want to use your leveling time to get to know your shots and how to play.
You will never use one button macros for PVP or PVE. Why start now?
If you have a better macro please feel free to post.

If you don't like the idea of such macros feel free to keep it to yourself or make your own thread about them but that isn't the purpose of this thread.

Thanks.
So essentially what your macro does is make it so you spam 1 ability 90% of the time while leveling.

Jee, that's gotta be loads of fun.

also...telling other people what to do on the PUBLIC forums is laughable.

A lot of new/inexperienced players frequent these forums. They need to understand that cast sequence macros are by and large a terrible idea for hunters, especially with our new focus system. It's better for players to learn to play using a priority rather than a button they spam mindlessly that isn't effective to begin with.

They may find the macro very useful.

Please define "useful" so we may better help you.
Are you looking for usefulness as in speed of leveling? Ease of button pushing? Preparing to learn your class for raiding and/or PVP?
I honestly am trying to help, but it doesn't seem you are being very receptive.
I'm under the assumption this guy is trolling. I was taking him serious until I noticed widow venom was in his macro.

So either he trolls or he's dumb. Either way, let him be.

No. It basically teaches them to bash one button, something that the should not be doing, regardless of what their end game aspirations/goals are. It's a bad strategy for both PvE and PvP. New players need to learn how to use our priority system/situational abilities. Rolling it all into one poorly constructed castsequence macro is not the answer. If you want a one button, idiot-proof rotation, roll an arcane mage.

It's useful in the sense it's easy to use. Little to no thinking involved while leveling. Target mob spam macro.

Ok, so you don't like that type of play style, fine. This thread is just not for you then. The macro works great, things die fast. Don't need to believe me, not here to convince anyone of anything.

If someone wants to use the macro then great, good luck with it. If not that's fine too. :)
You are seriously not understanding why we object to your macro, do you?

Not going to lie, I am laughing so hard right now.

It's true. So very, very true.

I thought about making a separate macro for healer mobs but honestly there wasn't much point, most mobs are dead before that debuff is cast and if it's cast so what?

I think you may need to look up the definition of trolling you may find you fit it. I'm only posting what could be helpful to some people. If you don't find it helpful then move on to the next thread instead of coming in here causing trouble.

One thing to note: note that some of the "arcane blasts" are on cooldown.

My assumption is they made a bunch of the icons look like arcane blast but actually cast arcane infusion/PoM. You see arcane potency (procced from PoM I believe) fade at one point in time.

The irony is strong with this one.

You're macro is the opposite of helpful. We're not trolling, we're pointing out the fact that though you think this is a great leveling tool, in reality it would basically teach a player all sorts of bad habits that they would have to unlearn when they hit level cap. It doesn't produce effective DPS, it doesn't increase survivability in PVP, it just allows the player to be lazy and not learn their class. We actually want people to a) learn their class and b) actually understand (somewhat) how hunters play while leveling rather than having to learn it all at once when they hit endgame.
