Druid Idol Macros

7 posts in this topic

unfortunately, im not too smart when it comes to figuring out macros. i am trying to make macros to switch idols per spell or move used.

/equip Harold's Rejuvenating Broach

/cast Rejuvenation(Rank 13)

/equip Idol of the Emerald Queen

is one example. but the problem is, it isnt switching back to the idol of the emerald queen after the rejuv is cast.

it is supposed to be the same style macro as

#show Steady Shot

/equip Sharp Arrow

/cast Steady Shot

/equip Warden's Arrow

which doesv do its job of switching arrows back and forth between shots.

so i dont understand why the idol macro isnt working. anyone have a suggestion?

Im no master macro maker myself either. But since rejuvenation calls for a globalcooldown (and equipping idols?) you must klick the macro several times to execute every line.

I made macros to do these on every cast as initially it seemed to not use GCD.

However when I finally macro'd it all up they ended up messing about with the GCD and I was unable to get cast on click with Lifebloom or Rejuv, always had to click 2-3 times.

simple macro's:

/equip Harold's Rejuvenating Broach

/cast Rejuvenation

/equip Idol of the Emerald Queen

/cast Lifebloom

etc.

well, the macros for healing work just fine it seems.

but the macros iv made for cat/bear form arent working out.

/equip Idol of the Wild

/cast Mangle (Bear)(Rank 3)

/equip Idol of Brutality

/cast Maul(Rank 8)

/equip Idol of Brutality

/cast Swipe(Rank 6)

Switching weapons while in combat starts the global cooldown. Outside combat it doesn't. I think that causes your problems. :)

(Switching ammo never starts GCD but idols are regarded as your ranged weapon slot.)

^ (taken from a site) v

Macros CANNOT get around the global cooldown, don't even try. In particular, be aware that switching a weapon (i.e. anything that goes into one of the lefthand, righthand and ranged weapon slots) always trigger a 1.5 s. global cd in combat. This also includes idols.

The problem is the GCD triggered by weapon swaps. However, if the spell has a cast time, you can swap weapons while casting.

For instance

/cast healing touch

/equip Idol that buffs healing touch

will work, instants will not since they don't have a cast time. +Heaing is calculated on spell cast, so equiping idols after you start the cast time is what you want to do.
