Can someone link a macro that will dispel from focus if they have something dispelable, and if they don't then it dispels from your current target instead?I use 'C' as my dispel button, and pressing alt+c will dispel my focus, but I was just thinking that there's rarely a time where I need to dispel something off of both my target and my focus, so I would think an all inclusive button would work much better. If no one has the macro off-hand I'll reply to this post later with it, if you can do that...pretty sure you can.

/cast [@focus, exists] Dispel Magic; Dispel MagicThis is probably the closest you will get, attempts to dispel your focus if you have one, and target if you dont. If you have a focus but he has nothing dispelable it will fail, however. Blizz has set it up this way intentionally to force players to remove a bit of automation and force players to make a direct decision.

No for the simple reason that this isn't possible.Macro's can't make smart decisions based on the presence of buffs and debuffs.For people interested in more Focus usage. Check:http://spotheal.wordpress.com/2009/06/30/it-helps-to-focus/Which I wrote a while ago, but it's still relevant if you're looking for other ways to make use of Focus.(For example, I use mine to track cast bars for the boss)

Changed direction mid-sentence there but yeah, you get the gist lol.
I'm pretty sure there are no conditionals corresponding to a unit's buffs/debuffs

/cast [@focus] Dispel Magic/cast Dispel MagicThe reason this works is because Dispel Magic triggers the GCD. If your focus has something dispellable, the first line of the macro will dispel it. Then, the GCD prevents the second line from executing. If your focus does not have something dispellable, the first line of the macro will return the "There is nothing to dispel" notification, then the second line of the macro will dispel your target.

@AdeanyAh, thank you very much. :DI was pretty sure it was possible somehow. I acutally posted that macro just a bit ago, but as WoW.com doesn't let you edit your posts, mine is way down at the bottom since hitting reply for some reason doesn't always work. :(
