Druid "form" macro
Return to board index
I've been looking for a specific macro for switching druid forms. I'm a feral druid looking for a macro that will:
If I'm already in any form whatsoever, cancel the form and return to normal.
If I'm out of combat, outdoors, and in a flyable area, switch to Flight Form.
If I'm out of combat, outdoors, but not in a flyable area, switch to Travel Form.
If I'm in combat OR indoors, switch to Cat Form.
Is this doable?
Edit: Forgot about aquatic form: If I'm in water (whether I'm in combat or not), switch to Aquatic Form.
Ok, so this will do most of what you want (assuming I got all the bits right, WOW is down, so I can't test on my druid).
/cast Aquatic Form Flight Form; Travel Form; Cat Form
Personally, I use a different style of forms:
Ctrl 1 button has the following macro:
\\cast Aquatic Form; Bear Form
Capslock has this:
\\cast Cat Form; Prowl; Shadowmeld
(Yeah, I'm a night elf) This macro allows me to double tap to get from anything to stealthed kitty, and if I'm in combat, just puts me right into shadowmeld when I try to stealth.
Ctrl 5 has the following:
\\cast Flight Form; (Mount Name Here); Travel Form
(This selects the fastest movement method available at any time).
If you want to stop having to deal with macros to accomplish this, go grab Livestock. It manages all the druid form stuff internally so you don't have to deal with macros. I was going to list out all the conditions, but that's a pain getting them straight. Suffice it to say that it covers everything you'd do in a macro including Dalaran/Wintergrasp with the exception for the Krasus's Landing sub-zone. It also includes functionality to choose a mount if you're in a
but choose a form if you're in
when you press it. Kind of neat.
I wouldn't dream of going back to managing some stupid massive macro after getting Livestock.
This one will do everything you asked:
/cast Aquatic Form;Cat form;Flight Form;Travel Form
The only place you will have problems is a place like Dalaran that comes back as flyable, but actually isn't, or in Northrend when you don't have cold weather flying yet This is why I added the initial Travel Form option. If you're in one of those problem areas, you can force travel form by holding down the alt key.\\
(edit: Shortened it, still does the same thing)
Thanks for the replies guys.
pelf, I've given livestock a try recently but without much success. The addon loads but doesn't seem to function at all. But thats a topic for another discussion...
RedwoodElf, thanks for your suggestion. I'll give that macro a try.
