Macros and "transforming" spells question
Return to board index
been away from WoW for a few months, coming back once i get new computer.
last time i was on, they introduced Sunfire for boomkins, which was hard to work with on macros and moonfire. I found out demonology locks have "transforming" spells now too.
So my question is, is macro'ing those morphing spells still buggy? does the tooltip and icon work and update correctly?
one example of what im talking about is Shadowbolt for Demonology warlocks. iit changes to Touch of Choas in metaform. if i wanted to pair it with, say, Twilight Ward, would this work:
/cast Twilgiht Ward; Shadowbolt
or do I need to do:
/cast Twilight Ward; Touch of Chaos; Shadowbolt
or will i still have to do what i did long ago and:
/cast Twilight Ward
/click BottomLeftActionButton 1
and put the actual Shadowbolt spell on another action bar to make the macro work?
You don't need to /click anymore for any spells. Be it a form spell, a pet spell or otherwise. Pass the name of the spell to /cast and it will work.
So to clarify,
will work correctly, tooltip, icon and all, even when it changes to sunfire? Same with Shadowbolt/Touch of Chaos/Demonic Slash and others like it?
Changing to Sunfire, maybe not. Does the spell itself change into Sunfire or is it a different entry in the spellbook? If it's a different spell, it won't change and there's no way to get it to. If it's not a different spell, you'll have to test it.
You'll also have to add a #showtooltip to the top of the macro. And choose the question-mark icon. That will set the tooltip and icon to the first valid spell in the macro. (Alternately you can supply #showtooltip with a spell manually to show.)
Pretty sure the spell changes even when referenced in a macro, since the spell is transformed in the spellbook - just like the mentioned Demo spells.
