#4622923 Survival Macros you don't have

Posted by Zizilio on 03 January 2017 - 08:43 AM

Just wanted to share some macros I wrote that were created after the launch of Legion (we have new macro options in spreadsheet format). Do not write in any '#showtooltips', the icon will change upon entering a PvP scenario (Arena/RBG/Skirm/World PvP). The icon will remain a '?' until you enter a PvP zone.


Sharing these to alleviate the headache of constantly dragging talent changes to action bars.


Master's Call/Mending Bandage (Changes according to selected talent)
/cast [pvptalent:5/2,@zizx] Mending Bandage; [pvptalent:5/3,@zizx] Master's Call;
Change 'zizx' to your character name or the name of the desired character you want to have this for your healer and your DPS partner
Snake Hunter/Crows (Changes according to selected talent)
/cast [talent:2/1] A Murder of Crows; [talent:2/3] Snake Hunter
/use blood fury
Every Sting [Spider/Scorpid/Viper] (Changes according to selected talent)
/cast [pvptalent:4/1] Viper Sting; [pvptalent:4/2] Scorpid Sting; [pvptalent:4/3] Spider Sting
If you found any use in these macros please take the time to like/comment on my battlenet post which includes an entire list of my macros.

#4595086 Simple Demon Hunter Arena Macros

Posted by Zizilio on 03 August 2016 - 11:11 PM

Hello, Ziz here, just wanted to share some very basic arena macros I wrote for Demon Hunters. These are for people who are unfamiliar with writing macros and just wanted to copy/paste!

Imprison Arena 1-3 (must have the Detainment Honor talent) Simply change the '1' to your 2 or 3 for all 3 macros.

#showtooltip Imprison
/cast [target=arena1] Imprison

Focus Imprision

#showtooltip Imprison
/cast [target=focus] Imprison

Consume Magic Arena 1-3

#showtooltip consume magic
/cast [target=arena1] consume magic

Focus Consume Magic

#showtooltip consume magic
/cast [target=focus] consume magic

Blur (stops all current casts and casts blur)

#showtooltip Blur
/cast blur

That's all about all I have for Demon Hunter's based on Beta, feel free to share any others you've made yourselves!

#4316898 Next level plays

Posted by Zizilio on 24 December 2014 - 08:37 PM

I already have a thread for things you can do with aspect of the fox, but I think this itself deserves its own thread. You can shadow meld with fox up and run around so it's kind of like a vanish, you get dispelled u pop fox and meld and run in stealth. Pretty sick imo.

#4275238 my impression on hunters at wod

Posted by Zizilio on 25 November 2014 - 03:21 PM

Trap off roots/snares,binding shot, wyvern, or concussive shot. It is important to use your teams CC in order to land the trap, especially of you are having trouble doing it on your own. There are many globals you can spend before shooting/placing the trap to land it to increase the chances of a successful trap. I've found that because of the speed at which traps travel when using trap launcher, being closer to the trap target allows easier trapping.

Also, if you can catch a healer casting it seems like the chances are much higher if you throw/place it mid-cast.

As far as the specs go, BM is meh dmg, Surv is good dmg but doesn't have any finishing power, MM is absolutely phenomenal, aimed/Chim burst combos or even just spamming aimed with RF/Thrill procs is very good damage. 35% kill shot range is also amazing, kill shot hits like a truck now especially if it crits.

Good luck my friend.

#4274890 Which Spec?

Posted by Zizilio on 25 November 2014 - 06:14 AM

I'm really liking Marks atm. I feel like Survival just does not have enough finishing power. BM seems meh, I really really like the BM set bonus (you and your pet share DR). With Marksman, the 35% kill shot is fucking amazing. In 3s you can easily burst someone to 35% with aimed/chim combos or even just RF aimed spam. Once they're at 35% you're either getting a massive CD like block or if KIll Shot crits they might just die. I've got anywhere from 50-85k Kill Shot crits. Really like Marks.

#4254937 Aspect of the Fox Tips n' Tricks

Posted by Zizilio on 07 November 2014 - 02:11 AM

Hey guys, just wanted to throw some things out there about Aspect of the Fox in case you haven't figured them out yet. Here's a list of some things I found out when playing with this ability.

You can:
-Cap Flags
-Mount while free-falling
-Mount while moving
-Bandage while moving
-Powershot (lol)
-Run at full speed in stealth without camo glyph (first be in camo and stand still for a sec, obtain the "in stealth" buff, then activate aspect of the fox). You're now free to run around at full speed in stealth for the Aspects duration.
-Keeps the Sniper Training debuff while moving (MM Mastery), awesome for stealth openers that require movement.
- Shadowmeld and walk while in meld
Macro for Party/Raid/Instance chat announcement:
/run local f,c="172106", IsInRaid() and "RAID" or IsInGroup(1) and "PARTY" or IsInGroup(2) and "INSTANCE_CHAT"; if GetSpellCooldown(f)==0 and c then SendChatMessage("{rt1} " ..GetSpellLink(f).. " Active! {rt1}",c) end
/use Aspect of the Fox

Same macro but announces in raid warning given that you have lead/assist:

/run local f,c="172106", (UnitIsGroupLeader("player") or UnitIsGroupAssistant("player")) and "RAID_WARNING"; if GetSpellCooldown(f)==0 and c then SendChatMessage("{rt1} " ..GetSpellLink(f).. " Active! {rt1}",c) end
/use Aspect of the Fox

This is all I've found so far, credits to Resticles/Eskimz for discovering some of these with me.
If you find any other new tricks feel free to contribute, thanks.

#4151597 Hpal Beastcleave vs Thundercleave

Posted by Zizilio on 22 June 2014 - 10:26 AM

I've been running hpal Beastcleave for about two days on my new shaman and we're stuck at 1950. We're all a little undergeared, ranging from me at 541 to healer and hunter around 545. The one comp we haven't been able to ever beat, no matter what we do, is thunder cleave.

It doesn't feel like anything on their team can ever die, even if we cross CC and 1v3. They are also generally able to stop more CC and have more uptime than us. I looked this up and found a strat to hex ele, scatter+trap war, and go MW in a silence. Is this setup the only way we'll get a kill vs thunder? Is it easier or harder vs a druid healer?

Thanks in advance :)

It's all on your Hunter pretty much, I don't know what healer is in the thundercleave you're fighting but your hunter needs to be getting off his full chain, go on the shaman. Scatter the healer, silence the shaman at the same time (they're on seperate globals) to prevent grounding and trap him, try and follow up with something out of that. Honestly it might not be a bad idea to go fear vs that, the hunter could bait tremors with wyvern sting and you could end up landing full fears. It's a tough comp to fight as beast cleave. GL

im sure you could fit more names in. this is discrimination at its finest. i will be reporting immediately

In this case I have only included the players involved that have affected myself and my partners directly, I cannot speak for other players and their experiences, thats not discrimination. You are just salty because you were called out and bashed for playing with a scumlord ddoser. You play HLS and your partner ddoses, you and your partners actions speak for themselves. Nothing else needs to be said, you look bad enough already, just give up.

#4147571 Thoughts on the use of GladiatorLosa

Posted by Zizilio on 18 June 2014 - 07:48 PM

People give up their anonymity too easily these days imo, personally I'm not gonna document my offsprings childhood too much in the internet when the time comes.

Not trying to be a judgemental prick here tho.

You're probably right, I'd never put myself or any of my family in danger I just really liked that picture, love my son =p

Posted by Zizilio on 18 June 2014 - 06:35 PM

ur entire ui is addons

Posted Image

If your argument is that I am contradicting myself by the use of addons, my UI does not provide an advantage over other players and I can play with or without it any time I choose to do so. Some players can not play without GladiatorLosa, their awareness is horrible without it.

#4147292 Thoughts on the use of GladiatorLosa

Posted by Zizilio on 18 June 2014 - 06:24 PM

situation 1: someone yells scatter, priest doesn't recognize the voice because they haven't played together much or he just fatfingers the wrong macro
you actually sound worse than that dk that always posts about this addon because you actually believe this shit

Why would a priest grip a scatter without a trap?

#4147232 Thoughts on the use of GladiatorLosa

Posted by Zizilio on 18 June 2014 - 06:10 PM

Hello again, this topic has been on my mind for quite some time and I'd like to exchange opinions. The addon, as mentioned in the title, is GladiatorLosa (link provided below with information). If you don't know about the addon or what it does feel free to view the description from curse.


Ever since its release I have always despised this addon. I honestly believe it provides an unfair advantage in many arena scenarios. While some players may argue that it helps new players learn the game and develop awareness, or that it's their money that they are spending and can do what they want with it, others may see things differently and believe that it provides an unfair advantage to both veteran and other new players. Keep in mind I am speaking about ALL brackets. There are innumerable instances that the addon has saved teams from losing, and winning. I'll give a few situations in which I have experienced firsthand.

Situation 1: This took place very recently and I think it's extremely humorous. We (Hunter/Boomkin/RSham), a comp I've recently been running regularly, were fighting an RPS (Rogue/Priest/Rsham). The Spriest and Rogue would routinely swap to our Rsham and the boomkin and I were forced to peel. Unable to clone due to an offensive cloak of shadows, I instinctively scattered the rogue on blades. The second I scattered the rogue, and I kid you not, the priest grips the Shaman literally 5 yards (barely noticeable). I honestly think this was due to his GladiatorLosa calling out "Scatter Shot", and the priest was tunneling so hard that he thought his Shaman was getting trapped so he gripped him. My partners and I thought this was comical and I thought it would be a good example.

Situation 2: This happens to myself and I'm sure thousands of other players daily. The second I scatter shot, if it isn't a priest instantly life gripping, it's an ele dropping a grounding, a warrior safeguarding, or a mage blinking to eat the trap. Yes, I am sure there are copious amounts of players who do actually see the scatter shot and anticipate a trap but streams and personal experiences have led me to think otherwise. Due to this disadvantage, and I know I'm going to get flamed for calling it that, I've been forced to lay traps on the ground as this addon doesn't vocalize laid traps. Being a proficient trapper or playing around an addon; you tell me.

I could list dozens of other scenarios in which I believe and have seen from streams and both high low ratings, players are being carried by this addon. There are comments on the addons page where people are asking for Chaos Bolt and Blink to be implemented. I feel that this addon is excessively noob-ish and should be either removed from Curse and other addon sites, or somehow banned from WoW itself. There are way too many situations in which this addon has caused a team to benefit immensely from either a poly deathed, a fear interrupted, a trap eaten, or a res prevented. I'd like to know your thoughts on this addon, please take in to consideration of multiple brackets and think about how new players not only benefit from this addon, but are exceedingly carried by it.

Before posting, please take the time to listen to listen to Ayras Vocaroo here: http://vocaroo.com/i/s13s46Bi13L9

I also believe that by using this addon, it hinders a player from improving their awareness and it transforms the player into acquiring a robotic-type of playstyle. I feel if a new player improves without the addon, his awareness will increase and he/she will look for things that need to be watched for and become a better overall player where with the addon they don't need to watch for important spell/cooldown usage from the opposing team because the addon calls it out for them. THIS IS MY GREATEST CONCERN. It's kind of like training wheels, if you don't remove them, you don't have to try but you'll also never be able to ride normally and become a better bicyclist.

I think this picture is the perfect analogy, the Boating School episode from the old Spongebob series.

Well, not sure if this shaman is Kaska but he's in Kaskas guild, add him to your dodge list. I'm proxied but often I play with people who aren't, unfortunately people ddos at this low of mmr, playing HLS. Sad. Really sucks when you just want to play the game but cant queue up cause people can't play fairly.

Edit: Thanks to recent posts in this thread I have been lead to believe that it was in fact the Warlock on the enemy team that was the attacker. I was sure of the attack but unsure of which one it was. Thanks for supporting this post with useful information, I was completely unaware of this Warlock and have never queued in to him before. I know this post flared a lot of drama but now I, and other people who were unaware of this warlock can dodge him and continue to (hopefully) play the game as fairly as possible. I can't stand DDoSers in this game or in general, they're often young kids and don't realize how much it can affect someones life outside of this game. Thanks again.

Edit#2: I am now 100% sure it was the warlock, he just did it again, forgot to dodge had no idea he was queueing. Here's the first game from today, noticed how many cooldowns we used and how long the game was, jk0cdsusedwonin2min.jpg
