DK Pet control guidance
Posted 02 September 2013 - 01:17 PM
So basically looking for a rundown of macros, including focus macros and general rotation to make pet use as seamless as possible.

/cast [@target] leap
/cast [@focus] leap
and for gnawing i use
/cast [@target] gnaw
/cast [@focus] gnaw
however i used to play with claw binded to scroll, which was good since you would always have energy for a stun, and you can also pool energy for x3 claw in a row, however if can be quite annoying for the ppl that you play with hearing scrolls all the time, and with 5.4 the gnaw and leap is gonna go off petGCD and it won't cost energy so your problem is solved with 5.4
for next season you can use leap+gnaw in one macro if you dont feel like doing it seperate hence the changes to the dk pet and the energy costs.
i dont have the macro to disable claw anymore tho

Festering Strike turns off Pet Auto-Cast Claw:
#showtooltip Festering Strike
/cast Festering Strike
Necrotic Strike turns it on:
#showtooltip Necrotic Strike
/cast Necrotic Strike
I have Plague Strike showing the CD of AMS, this turns on claw as well:
#showtooltip Anti-Magic Shell
/cast Plague Strike
Gnaw for my current target:
Gnaw for my Focus target:
/cast [target=focus] Gnaw
Leap for my current target:
Leap for my focus target:
/cast [target=focus] Leap
I have a separate macro that I simply press in order to pull back my pet, this displays the cooldown of my Death Pact:
#showtooltip Death Pact
And my pet defensive, this allows my pet to huddle when I heal it, because if I'm wasting the GCD in order to heal that bastard, it obviously needs damage reduction, this displays the Cooldown of Leap:
/cast [@pet] death coil

no point getting used to this anymore now, your issues with gnaw and leap are gone come 5.4
What do you mean?
edit: nvm saw nehelx's post
Yubel, what's the reasoning behind having festering turning claw off and necrotic and plague strike turning it on?
Also, is there any reason to have petattack not macroed into your abilities, just trying to understand the dk a little better, thanks.
I like the idea of having pet heal and huddle together, makes sense and saves a keybind.
