Lock Repeating Drain Soul Macro

#1 » Post by Hero_kris » 10 Mar 2013 19:49

Hi Guys,
So I am searching for a macro that will recast Drain Soul after its full duration finishes - I need it for Soul Shard farming from the dummies. Instead of repeatedly waiting for Drain Soul to end and cast it again simply to recast itself after its end - if not ''infinite times'' - at least as much as possible.
I am new to macros in general, I tried finding on the Net but to no avail. If someone can please make this macro for all of us locks out there ! It would be of great help as it would save a lot of time doing Soul Shard farming instead of PVP/PVE.
And also if someone can explain or give a guide to all the macro commands such as ''/cast'' and etc it would be really appreciated - I dont mean guides to creating macros because there are such guides on the Net - I mean the exact use of all the commands in the macro itself (such as ''/cast'').
Thank you and sorry for the trouble.

I don't think that's possible.There is a timer,but you can't use it for spells.

An macro for this would be cool, but i dont think its possible either.
Go for the addon instead :)

Spammable drain soul:
/cast [nochanneling] drain soul

Recast macro is not possible, since it would be simple to make 1 button rotations and macro based bots.

Well Hei - I copied this to the macro :

/aftercast /cast Drain Soul
/cast [nochannel] Drain Soul

but after trying to use it the macro doesnt do anything and gives a yellow text :
'' Unknown macro option : channel '' on the lower left in the chat panel.
Any ideas ?

/aftercast works only with the addon Aftercast
It's outdated (2006). I downloaded it but didn't test yet.

Tried it with [nochanneling] , it cast but nothing after that , as if I cast a normal Drain Soul.
Ill try again after I download and ''install'' the add-on , I am a bit busy for additional work these days so I ll probably try it after a few days, I ll report my findings , If someone tries it too - please post for us to see the result , wish me luck XD !

Sadly guys I downloaded Aftercast and tried the macro again :

''/aftercast /cast Drain Soul
/cast [nochanneling] Drain Soul ''

It cast but after it - nothing.


So Myth which add-on ?
Hei please tell us more about ace3 timers ?

It wont work dude, aftercast is an addon to do emote or say something in chat when the spell is casted. I dont know about ace3 timers but its probably the same thing, there is no legit way to make a spell recast itself.

Hmm wasn't sure if it would work with ace3

Code: Select all


#showtooltip Soul Drain
/in 10 /cast Soul Drain
/cast [nochanneling] Soul Drain

That may work if not maybe our new development Natrist who knows lua better then me can make something that will allow casting

PS I believe casting from addon is protected

/in only supports chat commands. It is impossible to make an auto-recast macro. Blizzard made sure of it.
