warrior 1 shot macro? PvP

Warrior
someone said theirs a macro for warriors that can 1 shot people as a combo of attacks? any truth to this?
There was in Cata. Was in Wotlk. Not so much now. The GCD of bursting abilities get in the way just enough to where you would have to spam that macro over and over again to get it to work. But, you can just put Reck, a trinket or two, orc racial(if you're an orc) and one ability on your macro and call it good.

It's more of a loosely based term for a macro which activates all of your damage cooldowns, odds are you won't actually 1 shot someone with it.

in this case it would look something like

#showtooltip
/cast Avatar
/cast Recklessness
/cast Skull Banner
/cast Deadly Calm
/cast (trinket)
/cast Blood Fury (orc only)

And mogu potion (4k str)
on my trinket I /use

doesn't matter if /cast or /use and the mogu potion is nice - I have it on a few choice macros as well.

The final thing you could add as discussed on another thread (which I find mildly amusing):

/y I'm gonna Dook you in the Dooker!!

just for laughs

It is actually ," I'm gonna OOK you in the DOOKER!!!"

dookin in the dooker, thats just wrong.
I wouldn't really call stacking TfB to five a one-shot macro. But it is a lot of burst that, when it crits, can take at least 50% of a player's life away off the GCD.

You have to set it up, but you can definitely achieve that result.
/use recklessness
/use deadly calm
/use avatar
/use 10
/use skull banner
/use potion of mogu power
/use heroic strike
/script PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Creature\\OokOok\\VO_SB_OOK-OOK_SLAY_01.OGG")

If you are not an engineer substitute 13 or 14 for the trinket of your choice instead of 10 which is the glove tinker.

I actually have "/y OOH KILL'EM!!!" with my own sound file that plays the phrase every time I use it. It's been pretty entertaining.

A paladin posting on an over 2 year old thread on the warrior forums. GTFO son
And berserker rage and shockwave are in his macro (usually a bad idea), along with a ilvl 458 trinket. By the way, /use 13 and /use 14 will work for whatever trinkets you have in those slots so you don't have to change your macro for each trinket.
Once you have your Prideful Weapon and you're over 530ilvl you can absolutely "one shot" someone, especially with Avatar. Granted "one shot" is not actually one ability, but rather you can knock someone almost 100% to 0 in about 3 - 4 seconds (not against plate usually unless it's a holy pally).

1. Build a macro that uses every offensive cooldown you have. Do not macro in Shockwave, that is a terrible idea. What if you want to burst and not shockwave at the same time, or you want to save your shockwave for a couple seconds?

2. Make sure your target's Blink, Disengage, Displacer Beast, or whatever "get away" ability they have is on cooldown.

3. Set up the burst by going Battle Stance and get a full rage bar.

4. Mortal Strike > Colossus Smash > Cooldown Macro > Shockwave > Slam Slam Slam.

It's pretty common to get Slam crits ranging around 120k once you're at about 530ilvl. So if you get at least 2 of the three Slams to crit, that's 200k to 240k or sometimes even more in only two abilities. If you line this all up well, it is a "one-shot" type of affect as they will likely die in the duration of the shockwave (hunter's cant deterrence in a stun :]). Avatar will make this burst even better obviously, but once you're 530ilvl, the burst is really good even without Avatar.
