My favorite macro for my hunter is the one that casts Hunter's Mark and automatically turns on or off growl and cower based on what pet I have out and whether or not I'm in group. So if I'm solo, I press my Hunter's Mark keybinding and it turns on auto growl and off cower. If I'm in a group with my tanking pet (since I run friends through low level instances) auto growl goes on and cower off, but as soon as it's time to do real groups and my dps pet comes out, growl goes off. Never any worries about stealing aggro from tanks.

I'd be very interested in seeing this macro -- or even some suggestions on where to find things like it. I've read a bit of all the various different macro things out there, and haven't yet seen something that does stuff this complex -- checking whether you're in a group or not. I don't tend to change pets often -- I tend to spend most of my time in groups -- but having something that automatically turns off growl when I'm in a group would be super nice...

I'd like to see this too please.My hunter is only level 20, but a macro to prevent those kinds of situations is the difference between a hunter and a huntard.

I'd like to add checking whether I'm in an instance: group + instance = growl off, cower on. There are times when I'm grouped (for chatting with friends) and soloing dailies.

Having read up a bit more on macros, I assume that this is just based on which pet you have out: /cast [pet:Gorilla] Whatever . In that case, it wouldn't really work for me (since I almost always use my wolf, even when questing). But still cool that it can be done.

The conditionals used to determine if you're in a group or not are simply "group" or "nogroup". Including this in a macro would look something like:/cast [group] spell/cast [nogroup] spellSo clicking this macro button will cast the first line if you're in a group and cast the second line if you're solo.
