MOTW Ep 55 – Brewmaster Brilliance

These macros come courtesy of Sunnier, as well as the descriptions for them. Enjoy.

This macro targets yourself with Chi Wave, guaranteeing that Chi Wave will heal you on its first bounce. That’s pretty important if you want Chi Wave to be useful while tanking. Just in case you want to start the Chi Wave bounce on someone other than yourself, use it with the ctrl modifier.

#showtooltip
/use [nomod, @player] Chi Wave
/use [mod:ctrl] Chi Wave

This macro puts all your taunt functionality on the same button. Without modifiers, it simply taunts your target. With shift, it targets and taunts off your Ox Statue, which is an AoE taunt. With ctrl, it casts Leer of the Ox (assuming you have it glyphed), which taunts some mobs onto your statue.

#showtooltip
/cast [nomod] Provoke
/target [mod:shift] Black Ox Statue;
/cast [mod:shift] Provoke
/cast [mod:ctrl] Leer of the Ox

MOTW Ep 55 – World Raid Markers

Use this macro to bind world markers to your keys. To change between the various colors, simply change the last digit in the macro on the second line to the corresponding number in the table below! Thanks and hendlove to Pudkud for sending this in!

MOTW Ep 37 – Havoc & Fire and Brimstone

Hendlove is going strong for warlocks right now, so here are 2 of Hend’s favourite warlock macros.

Before the fight, set a focus target. (Try the MOTW from Ep 36!) Using the following macro will cast Havoc on that focus. If that target dies and you need to refocus and cast Havoc again, mouseover a new target and hit this. Sets as new target and casts Havoc!

#showtooltip Havoc
/focus [@mouseover,harm,nodead]
/cast [@focus,exists]Havoc

Macroexplain.com explains it like this:

If the unit your mouse is currently over is an enemy and is not dead then:
Set your focus target to the unit your mouse is currently over

If the unit saved as your focus target exists then:
Cast Havoc on the unit saved as your focus target

This gem casts your Incinerate as normal, but if you hold down SHIFT, it will cast Fire and Brimstone first. This macro can also be used for Conflagrate, Immolate, and your Curses just as effectively!

#showtooltip Incinerate
/cast [mod:shift,harm]Fire and Brimstone
/cast [mod:shift,harm]Incinerate;[harm]Incinerate

Macroexplain.com explains it like this:

If you were holding the shift key and the currently targeted unit is an enemy then:
Cast Fire and Brimstone

If you were holding the shift key and the currently targeted unit is an enemy then:
Cast Incinerate on the currently targeted unit

Else, if the currently targeted unit is an enemy then:
Cast Incinerate on the currently targeted unit

Time to blow stuff up!

Episode 39 – Better Than Nothing

The boys decide at the last minute that any show is better than no show. Listen in to this week’s mini-cast as Hendlove is slowly turning into Warlock love and Rob pulls up his soapbox to rant about LFR and gearing alts.
