    Hello everyone. As requested I have revised my Guardian macro to include a little more Maul and Swipe usage and less Moonfire spam. The new one still using Moonfire quite a bit, but I am happy with it where it is, if you however do not like it then consider increasing the loop limit of the macro considerably (it is set at 12 now, try something like 24 or 30 or more) If that does not satisfy you then you can alter the /castsequence line to hide the casting of moonfire there behind a wall of Swipe, just continue to add Swipe to the sequence until you get the desired result.

    It is very important that you understand that this macro is very offensive minded, it does not by default cast any Defensive casts outside of your artifact weapon <Rage of the Sleeper>. This means that it will not cast the very important tank buff “Ironfur” for you without you telling it to do so (Either by pressing the modifier key [shift], or by spamming a separate keybind that has ironfur on it)

    ***IMORTANT***
    This will kill you if you are not careful as it does not cast ANY defensive abilities on its own, nor does it cast Frenzied regeneration. It does cast Rage of the Sleeper

    1. Press [alt] to cast Barkskin
    2. Press [ctrl] to cast Frenzied Regeneration
    3. Press [shift] to cast Ironfur but you must have 33 Rage to cast it and beat the macro to it casting Maul. The idea is to only cast Ironfur when you are the active Tank or expect heavy damage.
    4. Survival instincts you need to manage on your own keybind

    If you don’t like using modifiers then don’t use them, put those spells on thier own keys and spam them as desired.

    On a 5 minute Training dummy test I am seeing a jump in my dps of around 100k unbuffed. I went from 973,895 to 1,090,924

    *****5/10/2018******
    I have archived the original post here if anyone still wants to use the original macro. It is a lot more defensive minded and will do a perfect job of keeping Ironfur uptime at a max. I have raided all of (H)atb to this point using just this macro and have an Orange parse on every heroic fight using it so it is still very good, but I can push out around 100k more DPS with the new one.

    Hello Everyone!
    Here is my Druid Guardian Macro. It will support any Talent selection or combination. There are 2 macros listed the first being the rotation and the second a Defensive CD rotation.

    The main macro is pretty self explaining and simple to use, though is you choose the Incarnation talent it is not in the rotation and you will need to pop it manually (If enough people really want it in there I will make a version that includes it. It also Includes the Troll Racial Berserking (If you are another race and would like for your Racial to be cast on CD, just replace “Berserking” with whatever Racial Spell that you have.

    The Defense macro is more complicated (at least the way I run it), and can be handled 3 ways as folows, It will cast in the following order:
    Bristling Fur (If you have the Talent selected talent:1/2)
    Barkskin
    Survival Instincts (1 charge)

    1. In the main macro you may notice a line that is commented out:
    --"/click [mod:shift] DarkBearDefense",
    If you don’t mind modifier buttons then you can Import the ‘DarkBearDefense’ macro as usual, create an icon and just drop it on a bar somewhere that is out of your way (it just needs a home but does not ever require you to actually click it). Prior to importing the main macro you will need to remove the 2 dashes “–” that appear before this line that makes it a comment line rather than a code line (Once imported GS ignores these commented lines and removes them from the macro).

    2. Import both macros as is and put them on separate buttons. Click the Defense one each time you want to use a Defensive.

    3. Do nothing. Import the main macro and ignore the second (you will need to use your own keybinds for Defensive CDs)

    Main Macro:

    Defense Macro:

    Good morning, this rotation will serve me for a druid guardian tauren for mythic and raid, actualy i leveling my bear but I want to have optimum for these areas and thus help my guild, I am interested in the rotations focused on survival and healing itself to maximize 🙂

    Yes it should work fine for you. I use this everyday in Mythics+ , Normal and Heroic Raid. I generally parse in the 70%-90% range on warcraftlogs depending on the fight and group comp.

    As a Tauren the only thing that I would say is that you can either replace or remove the line:
    "/cast [combat] Berserking",
    in the “keypress” section with:
    "/cast [combat] War Stomp",
    Your option is to either rewrite the line as I have said and it will War Stomp on CD (Not ideal but if you have a bad habit of not ever using your Racial stun then at least you would get some use out of it this way). Ideally you would just remove or ignore this line and manually cast your racial to optimize stuns.

    Please let me know if you have any issues or questions.

    Hi, good morning,
    I decided to put the ability to stun on a separate button as you told me that is the most optimal, now, I would like to read what are the talents that you normally use or if you have one for one occasion and others for another, Since I have an addon to create talent profiles 🙂

    I run many different talent setups depending on the fight and needs. I’ll try to break it down for you though:
    Tier 15: Brambles for DPS, Bristling Fur for High damage High Def fights (Kil’jaeden), Blood Frenzy for everything else.

    Tier 30: Guttural Roars is what most people run, Intimidating Roar I only use in Mythic+ on Necrotic weeks, Wild Charge is my personal goto as I hate not being able to charge.

    Tier 45: Balance affinity for pretty much all occasions unless you don;t intend to accidentally pull the whole instance in a tight quartered area (Court of Stars I am talking about you). No reason to ever take Feral really, and Resto only if your healers need the extra help or there are no adds to pick up where the extra range from Balance helps out.

    Tier 60: Personal pref. whichever CC you feel helps you the most in your current situation.

    Tier 75: Soul of the Forest should never be taken over the other 2 (that being said I have the SoF Ring that I use frequently for High Defense fights), Incarnation when you need an extra Defensive CD and or you need to be able to have on demand burst damage and generally a better choice for pure single target fights, Galactic Guardian for DPS and AOE/picking up adds fights.

    Tier 90: Earthwarden=never used, Guardian of Elune in almost every situation, Survival of the Fittest if you really feel your only way to live is to have more frequent access to SI and barkskin. It is also arguably better in terms of DPS if you also take Brambles as your Tier 15 talent, but for me I sim nearly the same so I generally stick with Guardian of Elune.

    Tier 100: Rend and Tear if you don’t have/use Luffa Wraps then there are probably cases that Pulverize is better, but with Luffa you are always better off with Rend and Tear. For me when I don;t have Luffas on the difference between Pulverize and Rend and Tear is so minimal in terms of survival that I generally stick with Rend and Tear anyway as it is basically passive and is one less thing to manage. You may have noticed that I did not mention Lunar Beam… Essentially I never use this talent (There are a couple of cheese mechanics that you can take advantage of with this but it is really far and between, not worth mentioning in your fledgling bear career.

    So I think that outlines my general thought process but I understand that you may still be saying “WTF? I just wanna know what talents to use!” lol. So here is a General statement and a good place to start.
    Mythic Dungeons I usually run this: 1113331
    Normal and Heroic ToS (Fights we have on farm): 1111321
    High Defensive fights or progression (absolutely run this on Kil’Jaeden): 2331221
    for a good mix of surivabilty/DPS: 3113221

    The beauty of my macro is that you can freely Talent swap any Tier and it will perform.
