Survival Macros you don't have

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. 

Survival Hunter Changes (Ideas)

01 September 2016 - 03:58 AM

Made a post on Battlenet, would greatly appreciate if you guys bumped it so us Survival Hunters get the attention and changes we desperately need.


First off, Way of the Mok Na'thal, managing these stacks on top of Mongoose fury stacks can be very tricky considering your mastery could proc a Mongoose bite at any given time. Because of the added RNG, and the very short duration that these stacks are up, AND the fact that Raptor Strike does very little damage, often leaving Flanking Strike off cd until Focus is available. I think that Raptor Strike needs a focus reduction and should be put on a seperate GCD completely. Increasing baseline Haste could also help with this issue.

Second, traps, given that many times in Arena you are rooted, snared, or slowed and don't have Harpoon or Aspect of the Cheetah up, but need to get a CC off, I think Freezing Trap should be on its own GCD. If managing stacks wasn't an issue, or if they lasted longer, specifically Mok'Nathal stacks, I don't think this would be an issue.

Third, Survivability. Something HAS to be done to Survival survivability. Exhilaration, Roar of Sacrifice, and Aspect of the Turtle is simply not enough. Honestly, I strongly believe that Aspect of the Turtle is without a doubt the worst defensive cooldown in the game. 3 minute cooldown, you cannot attack (besides traps and Dragonsfire Grenade/flare), and the Damage reduction is only 30%. My solution to this is, because I doubt there will be a new ability added, buff Versatility by 15%, or add more Armor. Walking in to a BG and getting AoE'd down by random spells from people not attacking or targeting you (usually Demon Hunters) drains any amount of fun.

Lastly, I really wish pet talents were able to be chosen, regardless of the pet you have summoned. It really bothers me having so many rare pets in the stables, but we are forced to use a healing reduction pet, and this goes for all specs (Riverbeasts, Devilsaurs, Scorpids, and Carrion Birds are our only options for most Arena Comps).

Which Faction will you be for Legion? (Poll)

07 August 2016 - 08:20 PM

Hey everyone, I just wanted to conduct a quick survey to see who is going Alliance/Horde for Legion. Trying to figure out which faction I need my characters on. Below is a link to a strawpoll, simply select which faction you'll be. Maybe this will help out the Arena community on choosing sides!


Thanks for voting!

Simple Demon Hunter Arena Macros

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!
