Oh, and you should definitely make a macro for the felhunter to be totem stomping.


Quoted from Agnos in another thread. I know I have heard my warlock complain about totems in the past, I think this is a great piece of advice that maybe a lot of people don't know about.

Thanks Agnos

#showtooltip Unstable Affliction
/cast Unstable Affliction
/petattack [target=Healing Stream Totem]
/petattack [target=Windfury Totem]
/petattack [target=Mana]
/petattack [target=Tremor Totem]
/petattack [target=Grounding Totem]
/cast Devour Magic

That's mine. Most important totems go at the bottom.

I use it with UA since you can spam that button while running without actually casting anything, I also try to just press it during global cooldown, easier than making a button just for totems.

I only swap it in when I see a shaman though, cause it'll cause your pet to chase the wrong targets sometimes if there aren't any totems out.

/tar searing totem
/tar windfury totem
/tar tremor totem
/tar mana tide totem
/tar grounding totem
/petattack
/targetlasttarget
/assist azurewrath

Mine's less cool-looking, but generally the same macro. I have it bound to a separate hotkey from any other spell (Z), and I also spam it when I'm on global cooldown/mid cast. The thing I like about mine over the one above me, is it assist's the other DPS in my group (just remember to switch the name depending on what team you're playing on + bracket) and is usually a good thing to spam even with no totems in the arena. This way you get used to hitting it reflexively, not having to consciously think about it when fighting shamans.

Same problem as stated above, occasionally the macro will target someone with a similar name to one of those totems (going in descending order, Grumbug > Manthar > Trooth or whatever :P), and it will take the pet off who he was on originally. Just get used to hitting Ctrl+1 and it'll circumvent this occasional problem.

I'm trying to setup a totem stomping macro on my Druid... having some difficulty though.

Right now I do it similar to Agnos' and replace the /petattack with /cast Moonfire (Rank 1). I target the last totem on the list, but Moonfire never goes off. Any suggestions?

/stopcasting shouldn't do anything considering you're only casting one spell

Try this:
/cast [target=Windfury Totem] Moonfire (Rank 1)

Just to confirm. The totems on the bottom will always be targeted first, correct? Then up from there?

Right.

The macro tells the pet to attack each one in order, so it'll attack the last one as it goes thru the list.

1 thing to note.

That macro will cause your felhunter to behave uncontrolably. Because you are issuing a petattack command, your felhunter WILL attack something. That means that if there are no totems around, i will attack something with a name close to the list of the totem names you have in there. So you might wanna replace that macro with a standard immolate whenever there are no shamans around.
