    Default make 'target' macro to rotate targets

    In HM Duke Eblius, there's a lot of Sacrificial Thrall which you cant get near to, so if you are melee the best is to rotate ranged DoTs on all of the Sacrificial Thrall.
    Clicking them is kind of inconvenient, especially if they are close to the Skirmishers.

    Is there a way for a macro like 'target Thrall' to rotate between the thralls instead of stay targetting on only one of it?

    Just press the macro more than once, it should rotate through the thralls. Another way would be to use KBMs mob watcher (or whatever it's called).

    Try this Macro:

    suppressmacrofailures
    focus Sacrificial Thrall
    target @focus
    cast xyz


    After each press you change your target to the next Thrall that was not a focus.

    You can test the Macro on the Normal Practice Dummys

    suppressmacrofailures
    focus Normal Practice Dummy
    target @focus
    cast xyz

    Never used KBM before, what does that do?

    Both don't work, stays on the same dummy.

    You must first have agro from all test dummys, because the are neutral to you
    I tested this macro with 9 Normal Practice Dummys (all agro) and it works great.

    That macro of target swapping, focus and then swapping again should work as it does on Fauxmire, quite well.

    If that doesn't work for you for some reason, then just mark them 1 through whatever and have your macro cycle through the numbers..
    tar @mark 1
    --something here
    tar @mark 2

    etc
