The Azerothian Weather Service (AWS) has confirmed a Rain of Fire in the Warlock CC Posting province. They are classifying it as a full Deluge.
As such, I've picked up a thing here or there and returned to modify some of my macros. Warlocks are, apparently, now the upper echelon of Crown Control. I wanted to pass along the changes in case you're a weather lover like I am.
I'm also honing my Spanish since we leave on a vacation to Mexico in a little less than two weeks.
I have never been a pet micro-manager. The concept is abhorrent to me. If I wanted to micro-manage a pet, I'd go demo. Or BM Hunter. (/shudder) However, with the increased emphasis on Warlock CC, I could no longer ignore the issue that my pet, on defensive, kept wanting to attack the damn CC target since I'd lead off with that. So I did what I should have done a long time ago, I added a simple "petattack" line to one of my spells. I generally lead off with Corruption, so that's where I did the work. You may want a different spell, which is fine. Also on this, you can see that I'm triggering my trinkets. I use the slot numbers so that when I switch in and out gear, the macro doesn't need updated (like if you were to use the item name).
/cast [nomod] Corruption
/cast [mod:alt] Bane of Agony
That's it. I don't need any more. This sends my pet in to attack the target I've put Corruption on until it is dead. I then leave the pet set to passive to avoid any CC-breaking unpleasantness. The only down side is that I do have to pay attention and sick him on the next target, since normally I soul swap over my DoTs. This is acceptable to me for now.
Sort of a corollary to uno, if you are an engineer, you may be looking for a clever way to macro your Nitro Boost. I used to have a button I could hit for my boots, then they switched it to belt and that broke. I had to play around with numbers to find it (a quick google search yielded no results), so I wanted to make note of it. If you're looking to use the item in your belt slot, use the following:
I even chose a speedy-looking icon. This is for my DK though, so the Warlock is a lie on this one. I wouldn't think many 'locks are engineers, but I've heard of crazier things.
Finally, I decided to further complicate my CC macro(s). I added mouseover capability. It kept happening where I'd have my CC target targeted, successfully pacify it, then fail at clicking over to skull for one reason or another. Really annoying to just have plopped Corruption on your CC target, let me tell you. If it's banish, not so bad, but if it's fear... ugh.
Mouseover solves this by letting me focus the correct guy without clicking. I also bound one of my button slots to the "F" key, and I swap in the Banish or Fear version depending on my target. Previously, I'd been clicking, but it makes it a lot nicer to not have to.
/focus [target=focus, noexists][target=focus, dead] mouseover
/cast [target=focus] Fear
The change from before is that I basically just replaced the "/focus" line with a new one that triggers on mouseover. Now the only tricky part is mousing over the correct target if I don't have a good vantage point. I think I can handle that.
Uno mas cerveza por favor. Gracias. Donde esta el bano?
