Hey,

Could anyone lend me some advice on how i would script the following situation.

I currently have a macro that tells my pet to attack my target while also firing arcane shot.

I'd like to then have a separate macro that will allow me to cast arcane shot when selecting a different target but tell my pet to ignore changing target from it's original target. I want to do this without using the Focus system as well.

It is possible to do this?

Thanks

Isn't that just a arcane shot+pet attack macro and a separate arcane shot bind?

I worked it out with help form a guildie.

I need to keep my pet always on passive so when i tell him to attack a target, he stays on that target until told otherwise. This allows me to switch about targets while my pet chases the original target.

You should not do this, just bind your pet attack separately.

Bind pet attack with kill command If you're bm :P If not, then make a separate bind for pet attack :)

explain plz?


fwiw i started out with separate binds (ctrl+1 to send in; ctrl+2 to recall), before abandoning that system in favor of a /pet attack+arcane shot macro, and lately i've been thinking that i should have stuck with the original setup. i macroed to open up bindings, which worked, but also caused the pet to behave wonkily: doing nothing for long periods, continuing to attack old targets, etc. admittedly a lot of it could probably have been avoided by macroing to something other than arcane (ie KC, as someone else suggested), because i don't arcane shot nearly as much as i would have thought. in general though if you can spare 2 extra bindings, i would, because think you're afforded much more control in terms of fixing pet fuckups

/petpassive
/petattack

I think my water ele macro has those two lines in it, might need spaces idk. Keep this order. If you want to recall the fucker just loose target and press it, telling it to attack nothing. And it will

#showtooltip Kill Commamd
/petattack
/cast Kill Command

Everytime you hit kill command or the button for it, its with the intention of attacking your target, whereas this may not be the case with your other abilities. So this is the best macro for petattack as bm.

I use this. Attacks my target if no mouseover, attacks mouseover over anything else. Good for totem killing etc. You get into the habit of pressing it whenever you switch etc. I feel like binding into any abilities can cause down time in your pet.

I use:
pet attack(shift+scroll up): /petfollow /petassist /petattack [@target]
pet call back(shift+scroll down) /petfollow /petpassiv
Pet attack this target(shift+m5): /petfollow /petpassiv /petattack [@target]

and to make sure my dumb pet isnt slacking:
#showtooltip
/stopcasting
/stopcasting
/cast Explosive Shot (or chimmaer shot)
/stopmacro [@pettarget,exists]
/petassist [nomod]
/petattack [nomod,@target]
/stopmacro [@target,exists,nodead][@target,noexists]
-setting it to assist if it has no target, (unless i hold shift, dont want it doggystyling any dk's leg)

And ye, remember to do a /petattack [@target] in KC as BM, cause other pets, voiddeamons will taunt your pet
