This is PvE related ;x

Anyway, i've been trying to make a macro for Death Grip that prevents auto-targeting. The problem with auto-targeting is during 3D Sarth, it takes like 6 seconds or thereabouts for Shadron to actually be actionable so if I target Shadron and Death Grip to early, instead of Death Gripping Shadron, it death grips Sartharion and he breathes on the raid and that's not so good (killed 10 people lulz).

I tried adding target=exists but that didn't work. I know there's one for hunters/rogues but that only applied to spamming a macro and your current target dies.

Not quite sure what your asking, im assuming you want a macro to deathgrip "only" Shadron, but the one you made taunts Sartharion instead if you use it before Shadron becomes active.

Currently there are no [targetexact= ] syntax available for macro, only /target exact, hence I don't think you would be able to prevent DG from going off if he hasn't activated yet.

All I can think of with scripts is to target exact shadron, put him on focus, then targetlastenemy, and DG your focus, but using that would only put sartharion as your focus still if he hasn't activated.

Your problem is that death grip autotargeting enemy if you have no target. As Shyter said try to use focus target. It will look like:
/target Shadron

/focus

/cast [target=focus] Death Grip

fun times at malygos! i taunted him a dozen times because somebody was triggerhappy and killed the spark right before i gripped it.

workaround for malygos (might help at sarth too dunno)

/cleartarget
/target Power Spark
/cast [exists] Death Grip
/cast [exists] Chains of Ice
/target Malygos

I wasted alot of time retargeting the spark to check if its in range. Spamming the macro im able to dps malygos, until the spark is in range for deathgrip.

Naarf posted just what should work for it, didn't think about cleartarget+exists together :)

You could go with something like:

Quote

/cleartarget
/targetexact Shadron
/cast [exists,nodead] Death Grip
/targetlasttarget
If I didn't mess it up, that should be all you need, if Shadron didn't activate yet you'll retarget Sartharion and shouldn't cast DG.
