New Guide

I recently revamped my macro guide on the UI & Macros forum and decided to post it here. I write my posts in HTML and then use a script to convert them to WoW forum format, so it was trivial to convert it to wiki as well. However, since it is just a dumb translation, there are some things that need tweaking (like internal links, and maybe it should be split into a couple different pages). I'll be paying attention to any changes made here and incorporate any content changes into my private copy and the posts on the forum. Cogwheel 19:34, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Changes to passive voice

I undid the changes made by DaAznSaN. While I agree with some of the changes and will incorporate them into another edit, I find it strange that he purposefully reworded some phrases INTO the passive voice. Cogwheel 14:18, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Combining options with , and /

The following (taken from the article) does not seem to be exact:

Note: "," combines options by boolean And; "/" combines by boolean Or; prefacing an option with "no" e.g. "nochanneling" from "channeling", negates it.

It seems that "," works as a boolean And option separator, while "/" works as a boolean Or option argument separator. Let's say I want a macro that uses the Hearthstone while not in combat; however, I want to be able to use it in certain combat situations (perhaps I'm an experienced PvP paladin ;) ), so I want to be able to use it if I hold down the Alt key, no matter my combat state. I could try the following:

/use [nocombat/modifier:alt] Hearthstone

According to the wiki, that should mean "(No (Combat)) Or (Modifier)", but what it really does is "No (Combat Or Modifier)", and this is rejected by WoW with a message stating "Unknown option combat/modifier". This allows me to conclude that "/" cannot be used as a boolean Or on options themselves.

Now, let's say I want a macro that uses the Hearthstone only when I hold both Ctrl AND Alt. (Perhaps I don't trust my unl33t clicking skills and I'm afraid of using the macro accidentally, and 10 seconds isn't long enough for me to realize I'm hearthstoning accidentally. :P ) I could try the following:

/use [modifier:alt,ctrl] Hearthstone

Well, it's pretty obvious it won't work, because "," separates options, not option arguments. So WoW rejects this with an "Unknown option ctrl" (that is, assuming I'm holding down Alt, otherwise the first condition is false and the rest of the conditions aren't even evaluated), which is expected.

I recommend modifying the article to reflect this different use between "," and "/": "," separates options with a boolean And, "/" separates option arguments (after a ":") with a boolean Or. --Dorenthas 10:56, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

Macro help

Hi can any one tell me if you can make a macro for a warrior to use execute but if the target HP isnt low enough use mortel strike? If so can you please tell me how? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Shuyin (talkcontr). 12:47, 10 May 2007 (EDT)

You cannot get a macro to do something based on mob or player health/mana. :( Try

/cast Execute[modifier:alt];Mortal Strike

This will cast execute if you press down alt; otherwise it will cast Mortal Strike


ever since the last major patch the #show has not been working with the "?" icon like it did before - how it is still stated in the manual. Is this just me or everybody? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Atola (talkcontr).
