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.

#showtooltip Cleanse

/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.

#showtooltip Judgement

/console Sound_EnableSFX 0

/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear()

/cast [combat, raid] Avenging Wrath

/use [combat, raid] Potion of Speed

/console Sound_EnableSFX 1

/cast Judgement

/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear()l


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
