HELP: Macro Sprint / Nitro Boosts

Postby Sombrien » Fri Jan 09, 2015 8:18 pm

Hello, I've been trying to make a macro that uses the same key for Sprint as well as Nitro Boosts. I've tried variations of the following and to no avail. One of the abilities will trigger and the other will result in an error, or both of the abilities will trigger.

Code: Select all

#showtooltip
/use 6
/cast !Sprint

Code: Select all

#showtooltip
/use [mod:shift] 6;Sprint

Code: Select all

#showtooltip
/use [mod:shift] Sprint; [nomod] 6


Any insight?

Interesting...

Maybe-

Code: Select all

/castsequence 6, Sprint


or

Code: Select all

/castsequence reset=60 6, Sprint, Sprint


Haven't tried it. Also it probably wouldn't work in arenas.

Edit: Updated it

I updated the macros, but I don't know if it'll work.

I am so not an expert on this, but it looks to me like in your first example, Sombrien, you set it up to do both things in order. In the second and third, you're trying to /use Sprint, which I don't think will ever work.

I think if you just make sure you're trying to *cast* Sprint, you should be OK. Like:

/cast [nomod] Sprint
/use [mod:shift] 6

It was my understanding that use and cast were interchangeable. The macro did not work. However, the previously posted cast sequence macro works.

The use/cast ones will show the key press but not actually activate the key. However, a mouse click on the macro will activate it. So very odd.

Cool, then I have successfully proven my initial statement. :)

Nitro boosts share cool down with dps pot In case nobody was aware. 

Don't use those rocket boots unless you have to!

Type /use sprint and it'll work just the same as /cast sprint.

With /use and /cast, I believe they are interchangeable with spells. With items/item enhancements, I believe that only /use will work (regardless, /use is less characters :P )

The unfortunate thing is that both Sprint and Nitro boosts are off the GCD (I think), otherwise, your first option would've worked. I suggest an altered version of the castsequence macro already posted:

Code: Select all

/castsequence reset=60 Sprint, 6;

Basically, all this changes is it gives priority to Sprint, to avoid locking out your potion cd and then resets the sequence back to Sprint when its cd would be finished. Combat will find some issue with this however due to Ruthlessness reducing Sprint's cd.
