Life through the eyes of a really bad Retribution Paladin
Additional Retadin Macros for 4.0.1 and Beyond
Patch 4.0.1 killed off most of my macros. It was disappointing because I had everything so well planned out that I was able to control pretty much all of my abilities with one macro.
The following is a collection of the Retribution macros that made it through to 4.0.1.
This one is useful for those who do not use an add-on for cleansing. You simply move your mouse over the character or their raid frame and press a button. If you don’t mouse over anything, it will cast Cleanse on you.
/cast [target=player] Cleanse;
/cast [target=mouseover,exists,help] Cleanse; [target=target,help] Cleanse;
The following is my opening attack. I always use my Judgement ability as a gap-closer and, because you don’t have to be standing in front of your target to use Judgement, it can be a useful tool for courageously running away. The /console and /script parts get rid of the errors caused by attempting to cast something on cooldown: no more, “That spell is not ready, yet”. I’ve also added conditionals for popping Avenging Wrath and Potion of Speed. These will only be triggered if you are in a raid and in combat. This was partly to minimise expense on potions and – well – having Muh pop his wings at seemingly random moments while doing dailies was doing my head in.
/console Sound_EnableSFX 0
/cast [combat, raid] Avenging Wrath
/use [combat, raid] Potion of Speed
/console Sound_EnableSFX 1
The following is simply a good macro for clearing up space:
/castsequence reset=14 Holy Wrath, Consecration
Why would I include a taunt macro for a Retribution Paladin? Because I’m evil and I like to keep tanks awake in heroics.
/cast Hand of Reckoning
