    Default Smart macro?

    Hi,
    Would it be possible to create this macro?

    cast Annihilate when I don't have the buff
    cast Final Blow when I do

    It would have to be able to detect wether or not I have the buff or not, don't think this is possible?

    Nope. Macro mechanics like this are not allowed.

    I actually don't think I've ever come across an MMO that would allow "if, then" macros.

    Thanks for reply, I don't know much about how to create macro's, and playing AS/NB/RS there are not a lot of ways to cut down on the key binds, at least at level 22.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I have Annihilate in one of my builds as well. It would be really nice if someday there is a UI frame that only monitors self-buffs, rather than all of your buffs from other people. It would make it so much easier to monitor things like Annihilate and Baneful Touch.

    WoW in vanilla. Later the API was changed to block the functions.

    You could mash one button and do anything you could possibly think of.

    Healer class? Drain Mana.
    No debuff? cast debuff
    missing buff? cast buff
    Health/mana low? cast heal, use potion
    Slow effect already applied? Don't use spamstring, If there isn't then cast it.
    raid member low on health? Heal them with the most efficient heal.

    More or less was a built-in bot.

    I understand why they don't want that to happen, but sometimes it's a real pita to monitor all my buffs when focusing on other things, I play bard/marksman in pvp for the moment, and every 30seconds my 4 motifs run out and have to recast all of them, I guess the queue system helps, a bit...
    Theres just so many abilities, it's overwhelming

    1) Get a mouse with more than 2 buttons
    2) Set another action bar with the commands you do all the time to those buttons on the mouse.
    3) Practice it in Warfronts or on mobs while questing.

    You should get the hang of it. I have a naga, and with the exception of the Alt+2 to = being bugged still, it's way easier to do stuff.

    Now I have 12345 on the keyboard for cooldown abilities, 1 is the spam key
    Naga 1234567890-= are all keybound to Action Bar 2 and are the buttons in rotation as I need them.
    Naga Alt+1 = either a health or mana pot, seeing as the others are broken still
    Naga Ctrl+1234567890-= are all keybound to Action Bar 3 and right now I'm using 123 for things like Poisons, Fanfares, Crit Buffs, Damage Buffs things with like 2 min. cooldowns that I can just use when I need to.

    It's very fast and efficient.
