And thus, the Reckstorm was Negated

[PvP] Macro Compendium

Shamelessly copied from my own post on the forums!

Hey guys, I've been given something by the community many times. It's time to give back. Here's my macro compendium for PVP'ers. Many of them will work for other classes if you just tweak the ability-names :) Note: They're not sorted by importance! 

  Table of Contents:
  • Arena Focustargeting - #AR01
  • Focus Disarm - #AR02
  • Focus Kick - #AR03
  • Kick (+ stop Spinning Crane Kick) - #AR04
  • Tiger's Lust (Freedom) - #AR05
  • Detox Party - #AR06
  • Detox Self - #AR07
  • Paralysis All-in-One - #AR08
  • Tigereye Brew (Burst Macro) - #AR09
  • Party Markers - #AR10
  • Rising Sun Kick (#engineers) - #ENG01

  • Arena Focustargeting - #AR01
    /focus [target=arenaX]
    
    
    Replace X with 1, 2 and 3 (+ 4 and 5 if you play 5v5), and keybind them all. This is a great way to focus target players on the enemy team. Another good way is to right-click their nameplates on Gladius, but if you don't use that addon, this is a great alternative. [i]I personally have them bound like this: 1: Ctrl+MouseScrollUp 2: Ctrl+MouseScrollDown 3: Ctrl+MouseScrollClick[/i] So whenever my team switches burst target, I never have to think about looking over at gladius, I just re-focus and CC or whatever needs to be done. Really handy!
  • Focus Disarm - #AR02
    #showtooltip
    /cast [target=focus] Grapple Weapon
    
    
    We have THE best disarm in the game. Along with the focus-setting macro above, this tool is insane versus melee cleaves. Remember that you have a long range (40 yds) on disarm ;)
  • Focus Kick - #AR03
    #showtooltip
    /stopcasting
    /stopcasting
    /cast [target=focus]Spear Hand Strike
    
    
    Focus Kick is extremely important.
  • Kick (+ stop Spinning Crane Kick) - #AR04
    #showtooltip
    /stopcasting
    /stopcasting
    /cast Spear Hand Strike
    
    
    Kick needs stopcasting, so you're not doing spinning crane kick, or something else, when you want to stop that important cast! You need to click it twice if you're doing spinning crane kick (once for stopping crane kick, and once for actually doing the silence). I also use this macro to stop spinning crane kick if I already found a stealther, or in PvE, if all mobs are dead ;)
  • Tiger's Lust (Freedom) - #AR05
    #showtooltip
    /cast [target=mouseover,mod:shift]Tiger's Lust;[target=player,mod:alt]Tiger's Lust;Tiger's Lust
    
    
    This macro pops freedom on you if you have an enemy target, or if you press alt and click it. If you have a mouseover target (eg. mousing over your healer in the party frames) and hold shift while clicking, you will freedom that target.
  • Detox Party - #AR06
    #showtooltip
    /cast [target=partyX] Detox
    
    
    Replace X with party members 1 and 2 (they're never you). Test this macro out before you enter the arena, so you have a feel of who is member 1, and who is member 2. For keybind, I use Shift+MouseScrollUp and Shift+MouseScrollDown to detox partymember 1 and 2.
  • Detox Self - #AR07
    #showtooltip
    /cast [mod:alt,target=player] Detox;Detox
    
    
    Replace "alt" with your self-cast modifier. Will detox your currently friendly target, or yourself if you have an enemy target. If you hold alt, it will target yourself either way.
  • Paralysis All-in-One - #AR08
    #showtooltip
    /cast [mod:shift,target=focus]Paralysis;Paralysis
    
    
    Change shift to whatever focus-modifier you'd like. If you hold shift, it will Paralysis your Focus Target, if you just hit Paralysis, it will paralyze your current target. Really handy :)
  • Tigereye Brew (Burst Macro) - #AR09
    #showtooltip Tigereye Brew
    /cast Tigereye Brew
    /use 14
    /use 10
    /cast Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger
    
    
    Pop it all! This is our version of the Swifty One Shot Macro! It pops Invoke Xuen, Tigereye Brew, PvP damage trinket (lower trinket-slot) and (for engineers) your glove enchant. The glove enchant only goes off if the PvP damage trinket is on cooldown, since they don't stack.
  • Party Markers - #AR10
    #showtooltip
    /script SetRaidTarget("party1",1);SetRaidTarget("party2",3);SetRaidTarget("player",8);
    /use 6
    
    
    Sets party markers on your party in the arena. I also added in belt-enchant for engineers (rocketboots/mind control/grenade) so 1 button serves an extra purpose :)
  • Rising Sun Kick (#engineers) - #ENG01
    #showtooltip Rising Sun Kick
    /use 10
    /cast Rising Sun Kick
    
    
    Useful for engineers. You'll want to pop your hand-enchant (Synapse Springs) as often as possible, and Rising Sun Kick is our main damage, so put it in there on your most spammed cooldown :)
