How can I switch a sword with a dagger then use Backstab and after that to switch these weapons again?
I tried this macro and so many others when I had equipped a sword 1 :
/equipslot 16 dagger
/equipslot 17 sword 2
/equipslot 16 sword 1
As a long time rogue, you don't. If you're Subtlety or Assassination specced, stick with a dagger at all times; if you're Combat specced, stick with swords at all times.
beyond that - from the technical side of things, Backstab is on the Global Cooldown. Which means any command set after it, in the same macro, will fail.
So you can do something like
/equipslot 16 someDagger
and you'll be able to switch to dagger and cast backstab with it, however, if you add anything after that - such as re-equipping your sword, it will fail.
So if you
want to do this, it's better to use the macro above, and then make a second macro for the ability you want to use swords with - such as...
/equipslot 16 someSword
/cast Sinister Strike
And that way, you should be able to switch to a dagger, use backstab, and then when you hit your SS macro, it will equip the sword, and cast sinister strike.
, like Neffi said, Subtlety and Assassination are designed for best performance with Daggers, while Combat is designed to work best with swords - so you won't gain anything - and likely lose out by doing this switcho-changeo thing. But this isn't the Rogue forums, and you asked a macro question, so I gave an answer. :p
Thank you for the information and the advices! :)
