The church of Macrology!

Hmmm, this is becoming a flurry of posts.

While trolling the net yesterday, I discovered macro's to never let a single KC (or silencing shot) be longer of cooldown then 1.5s.

The trick:

#showtooltip skillname
This shows the correct tooltip
#show skillname
This shows the correct icon (don't have to set it yourself)
/cast [target=pettarget, exists]
Casts Kill Command, if your pet has a target
/cast skillname
Casts the skill
/cast Silencing Shot
Casts Silencing shot.

And now for all you who get their (and their comrades) arses freezed on Hodir:

#showtooltip Master's call
#show Master's Call
/cast [target=mouseover, exists][Target=player] Master's Call

This macro let's you safe your teammates on Mouseover, or yourself when you mouseover yourself or nothing.

And then the nuke macro: (I kinda failed here before, putting Call of the Wild on autocast, that was damn well stupid.)

#showtooltip rapid fire
#show rapid fire
/use 13 Allows you to use useable trinkets
/use 14 Second trinket slot
/cast Bestial Wrath
/cast rapid fire

/cast call of the wild

Voila these were the revelations of yesterday.

Hope you liked em!

Ignis 25 Echoes of Lordaeron

I made this little video, while doing Ignis, the quality should ensure that your are able to see which spells are being cast.

Ignis Vid


Marksman PewPew

Allright then.


Spec: 7/57/7 is the most common Cookiecutter.

Now in 3.1.3 there will be an insteresting change 300AP Hunter's mark will become 500AP. Yadda, Yadda.

Big deal you think. But no. The talent (maybe the glyph aswell) may actually be worthwile now. Atleast I think it's a good idea to have 1 hunter rolling with it in the raid.

For MM it will be a no-brainer, but it will steal points from Improved Barrage/Steady Shot depending on the build.

So u'll get: 7/55/7 +2 to spend as you wish. (You can drop the mana regen on RF)

I'm not too big a fan of ISS, so screw that talent.


Crit: Very viable for MM hunters. Our crits hit verty hard, so the more the better.
AP: Scales nicely with talents. Not as important for MM as for Bm tho.

Agi: The best thing to gem for. Combines Ap and Crit (and you'll be able to use the same gear for SV)

Haste: Has limited use for MM. With IAotH your SS will be close to the GCD anyhow.
Hit: Du-uh.
Arpen: Nice not mandatory tho. Does not benefit all shots tho (Arcane, Nature part of Chimera shot)

When in doubt Spreadsheet it (tm)

Rotation. (Fixed)

Hunter's Mark

(Kill Shot)
Chimera (first to catch ISS procs if talented)
SS*3 (*2 of not <1.5s cast)
(SS = Macro with KC, SS and Silencing shot in it.)

Rapid Fire
Wait 15s
Rapid Fire

This was a quick MM 101. I hope it was usefull.
