Potion only in a Raid

Postby kokomala » Thu Oct 25, 2012 11:41 pm

I couldn't find this anywhere so

/cast Tiger's Fury
/cast Berserk
/stopmacro [nogroup:raid]
/use Virmen's Bite

This will only use your potions when you are in a raid. Obviously I have a few more lines to this, but this is the basic macro.

Lol, my DPS Cooldown Macro doesn't have enough room for that line:

Code: Select all
#showtooltip [form:1] Berserk; Tiger's Fury
/cast [form:3] Tiger's Fury
/cast [form:1/3,mod][form:1] Berserk
/cast [form:1/3,mod][form:1] Berserking
/cast [form:1/3,mod][form:1] Nature's Vigil
/use [form:3,mod][form:1] 13
/use [form:3,mod:ctrl] item:76089

You can use /use instead of every /cast line. That will save you 4 extra chars.
Also, [form:1/3,mod][form:1] can be replaced by [form:3,mod][form:1], saving 8 extra chars.
But if you are Feral/Guardian, you are always in the appropriate forms when pressing this, you can skip the forms part altogether. Or you could do a /stopmacro [noform:1/3] in the beginning. Lots of possibilities.

Add to that, that your entire second line isn't necessary, iirc, because ; means else if... thus line 2 is simply repeating line 1's else if statement, and since TF is only usable in cat form there is no need for a form modifier on it. That's another 24-27 characters freed up.

Something to think about. You likely don't want the Potion part in your Berserk macro unless you use a shift modifier for it. Reason being you don't always want to use your only potion on your first (second if you pre pot) Berserk.

Yes, with bitw rolling, you'll want to use your pot on the last berserk for almost every fight, which means you'll need it to be a modifier.

This also means you might not even want to pop your pot with berserk, you'll want to pop it when you put up your bitw bleed, whether that lines up with berserk or not.

Last berserk? Sometimes it's true, but I'd rather save it for burn phases like Titan Gas etc. Plus, as I'm running with HotW I usually use my potion synced with it + Bloodlust.
Someday, someone will best me. But it won't be today - and it won't be you.

You have to remember that if you hit it at the start of BitW your Rip will have the benefit of the potion for almost 20% of the entire fight. Using the potion at any other time than the start of the execute phase is going to struggle to match that for effectiveness even if it is during bloodlust.

instead of using /stopmacro, you could just have /use [group:raid]virmen's bite

You can reduce the first line to simply #showtooltip

That will make the icon/tooltip show the first active action of the macro and will automatically update based on your modifiers/forms, etc.

#show works.
