Troy “Aether” Hewitt forced, erm pinched convinced Lead Client Engineer Jon “Underdog” Wiesman to answer some questions for us at Wildstar Central.
There is probably not a day where I don’t get a whisper or an email about macros. The big advavntage of using macros is that they increase your focus on the game by covering easy tasks and they let you save those precious slots on action bars. The more and tighter macros you are using the more flexibility you are losing, too. It is your choice how far you want to go.
Cataclysm will be launched within a few hours, most players wait with anticipation for midnight. But what can you do till then?
A common problem for dual wielding classes is that they are using 2 weapons with the same name. The normal /equip macros usually bug or place the wrong weapons or don’t change the offhand at all. Fortunately I stumbled over a neat script sometime somewhere to return an equip itemcode for your current equipped weapons. You can use that for your own macros and it will work flawless for your macros.
Macros are the perfect way to ease mass production of Disenchanting, Milling and Prospecting materials without relying on addons. The best suited macro command for this is /use. Basically always when you get a target cursor, like when you click on disenchant you can set a target with /use item or /use itemid. This one click macro is a great time saver. The only limit that you should look out for is if you have 1-4 leftover ores or herbs, the macro will get stuck at some point. It will target material you but since the number is lower than 5 it cannot prospect/mill it. To get around this I mail uneven numbers of materials to a different character.
In case you did not know, as Retribution Paladin you might consider clicking off the Chaos Bane Buff to increase your dps. “Your melee attacks have a chance to drain a Soul Fragment granting you 30 Strength. When you have acquired 10 Soul Fragments you will unleash Chaos Bane, dealing 1900 to 2100 Shadow damage split between all enemies within 15 yards and granting you 270 Strength for 10 sec.”
Looking through recent search queries I noticed some visitors that were lead here, but probably did not find what they were looking for. “wow shaman disrupt spell Earth Shock” Since 3.2 Earth Shock does no longer interrupt spellcasting. Instead it reduces Melee Attack Speed by 10%. Interrupts are now done by Wind Shear, which is off Global Cooldown. It is 1 buton more to use, but overall the better solution. Since Wind Shear is off the global cooldown you can still use a macro like the one below to fake the old function: #showtooltip /stopcasting /cast Wind Shear /cast Earth Shock You can also change it to Frost Shock for example for PvP. “how to unmount vehicle wow” Sometimes Vehicles in WoW bug and you can’t exit them, or some fancy addon prevents the action bar change. Here is a way to get around that: /run if CanExitVehicle() then VehicleExit() end; If you haven’t changed the default key bind “NumPad5” to leave a vehicle then that might be an option for you aswell. “best enchant for off hand shaman weapon” current best Enhancement Shaman enchant for Off Hand is Berserking. Unless you mean Weapon imbues, then it would be Flame …
