First I’d like to say thank you all for the macros, and a HUGE THANK YOU to the people who have posted them here: I have stolen everything contained in these versions, but over such a long period that I don’t even now who to credit for their origins.
If you are one of those people, all I can say is you have my sincere gratitude; without you WoW would not be enjoyable to me in any measure like it has been since I found GSE. (I don’t say that lightly. I am a vanilla player who was stuck in the auction house for WAY too long).
I’ve been a regular on this site for about three years, but never posted anything; just an end user. About six months ago I started tinkering with the macros for myself, and about four months ago it got kinda serious. In the last two months tho I have really begun maining one toon - my melee druid. At about the same time I have fallen head over heels in love with open world pvp.
Here is what I am using now, and I feel like it is polished enough to release it to you guys; not too certain how much * I * will be able to improve on it, but I hope it doesnt get abandoned even if I go afk for a few months.
This macro if for a free form melee shapeshifter. I stack Versatility as much as I can get, except for the weapon enchant sometimes. The system will work with any gear tho, if you are using it outside of the PvP venue. I also use the Conflict and Strife essence in my main slot, because Thorns is so useful to melee.
In the PvP Talent Tree, I use Adaptation, Freedom of the Herd, Leader of the Pack, and Heart of the Wild if I am in Kitty spec. The same macros will work tho if you are in Guardian instead. For that I use Relentless, Master Shapeshifter, Demoralizing Roar, Den Mother. I you use Bear spec instead of Kitty, you will need to change out “Thorns” for just the generic “Heart Essence” command, and also change “Enraged Maul” to just “Maul”
I dont know if GSE will automatically susbtitute those answers or not, but it seems to in some cases.
I try to be as useful to the group as possible, instead of focusing on my own numbers; that said, I tried to build this system to be usable in ALL environments, including solo questing.
Im not a great player; I dont handle choosing what to do in the thick of battle well. But, I have compensated, like a lot of you, by learning a LOT about how my abilities work together.
3 buttons: each will auto take you to that animal form. The Third Macro I will have to post in a follow up post because “new users are only allowed to link two items” even tho we druids flow freely between many ideas
- 3B_CAT (1322123 if you are in cat spec) will auto-stealth you, target a 100% target nearby, and then pounce with Wild Charge. The progression should be enough to keep you in energy and a few finishing points at all times, with one sure fire 5 point finishing move. It also auto-triggers Ferocious Bite and Regrowth when they are available (no, it wont take you out of cat form for regrowth).
- 3B_BEAR (3322123 if you are in bear spec) decent damage, but also good survivability. Trying to stay in the fight and buff my allies with the 15% stamina boost that I give them all, plus a LOT of utiIity moves. If you have a Clearcasting up and have just come over from cat form, then it should cast Regrowth.
