Ok.. that was odd. Trying again...I <3 MacrosMy old 80 hunter had tons of them. And I've already made several for my new druid and shaman.I just wish Bliz would allow more than 255 chars per macro. Or allow us to assign a slash command to a macro (eg. /mycustommacro) so we can call macros from within other macros (like functions in programming).

I'm fairly certain Blizzard has specifically stated that they won't be doing this because they're worried the game will become too automated.They don't want every class to just be able to spam a Murder macro for every encounter.

"Or allow us to assign a slash command to a macro (eg. /mycustommacro) so we can call macros from within other macros (like functions in programming)."What you CAN do, IIRC, is call something IN A SPECIFIC SLOT ON AN ACTION BAR, which could be an ability or could be another macro. It's a feature I've never used, though, so they may have removed that functionality since I read about it. Worth checking out, though--at least if you have an action bar slot to spare.
