    Default Macro help - marksman

    I want empowered shot to be at the top of my CP-Builder macro, but I only want to shoot it when its instant (from hit and run)

    Is there a cancel cast or something that can be added that will prevent casting empowered shot if I'm standing still?

    Yes and no:


    1. If a casted ability is in a macro, it will be passed over if you are already moving. For example, the macro:

    cast Empowered Shot
    cast Swift Shot

    Will cast Swift Shot directly if you are moving when you press the button.

    2. This doesn't work because you stop autoattacking while moving. Significant DPS loss.

    3. General workaround:

    (a) Leave your regular spam pew pew macro alone (no Empowered Shot).

    (b) Make a macro for your Hit and Run:


    cast Hit and Run
    cast Empowered Shot


    This way you can just rollface your new "HIT AND RUN EMPOWERED SHOT ROTATION" button without burning additional keyboard real estate.

    All of those MM buttons can be overwhelming.

    You just find it to be a hassle to have Empowered Shot on its own bind. I get it too many buttons. Im curious what you CP builder Macro is without Empowered Shot.

    If having a CP builder macro and finisher macro gets to be too much for you try something like this

    Dusk to Dawn
    Blazing Strike
    Flame Thrust
    Fiery Spike
