You can trim these macros down (Why? BECAUSE YOU CAN! *ahem*) by using @focus, @target, and [nomod]/[mod:alt] in the right spots.

and to add to the list, I present "Nipah's list of 'meh, they work' macros"!#showtooltip/use [mod] Hearthstone; Astral Recall#showtooltip/cast [mod] Water Shield; Lightning Shield#showtooltip/cast [@target,help,nodead,mod][@player,mod] Water Breathing/cast [@target,help,nodead][@player] Water Walking#showtooltip/cast [@mouseover,help,exists] [@target,help,nodead] [@targettarget,help,nodead] [@player] Greater Healing Wave#showtooltip/cast [nomod] Hex; Bind Elemental/focus#showtooltip /cast [mod] Flametongue Weapon; Windfury Weapon /use [mod] 17; 16 /click StaticPopup1Button1(I'll admit, this one works, but its probably old code)

Another way to trim your macros is to replace /cast with /use. /use works on everything now, and that one character can make a difference. For instance, my earth shield macro is at 3 characters shy of the limit (it sets my focus if I have none or hold control, casts ES on my mouseover if I hold shift, or casts ES on my focus, my target, or myself with no mod, depending on the state of each target). This is also important for combining all purpose mount macros to work with ghost wolf.

Do you guys have any good resource sites you can recommend for macro guides? Everything I seem to be able to find uses code that I know is outdated (like target=___ rather than @target).

Wowpedia has a fairly good macro section, but in general you have to just search for whatever kind of macro you are looking for. For instance, there are lots of resources for class specific macros, but not many places where many categories are in one resource.

Yeah, wowpedia is one of them that I was talking about. A lot of the stuff there is stuff that was just copied over from wowwiki, and a lot of that stuff was relatively dated. Searching for specific macros is probably a better idea. Thanks!

Don't forget [button:2] allows you to right click on a button.
