wow macro castsequence skip if cooldown

I”m trying to make a macro that will cast Victory Rush when I have the Victorious buff (which enables Victory Rush), and cast Bloodthirst if I don”t.

The closest I”ve come up with is

/castsequence victory rush, bloodthirst

The problem is that if I don”t have the Victorious buff, the macro doesn”t do anything. Though if I do have Victorious, the macro works one time.

Is it possible to make a macro where the game checks if I can use Victory Rush, sees that I can”t and uses Bloodthrist instead?
Nope, macros cannot check to see if an ability is available or if you have a buff.

Castsequence will not continue on to the next spell until it has successfully cast the one it is waiting on.
Generally, nope. Macro”s aren”t allowed to work things out for you.
I THINK in this case though:

/cast victory rush
/cast bloodthirst

Might work. It should drop through the first if it can”t cast it and hit the second.
It is impossible to write any macros that ask a question, make a decision, and then act on the results.

That will ONLY work if Victory Rush does NOT cause a GCD. Any other situation will cause that macro to only ever cast Victory Rush when it”s available, and never Bloodthirst.
Blizzard probably doesnt want you to have this automatic casting system. The game was being way too automatic back in the day where a player would cast the best thing it was available, and the second best thing if the first was unable to be cast…you would end up with players just spamming one button for "perfect rotations" or doing stuff in pvp which should really require more thought.

In short, just bind them separately and think about what you”re doing.

just add /cast victory rush to the the start of ur rotation macro or ur spamm macro and it will cast victory rush 1st if its available if not it will cast what ever it is u usualy spamm. i think that may work like this
/cast victory rush
/stopcasting
/castsequence reset=5 (rotation spells each followed by a comma)

this may work, i need to go ingame to see, also i may have spelled some stuff wrong so check spelling in ur own macro
This is cheating but it”s possible to macro Victory Rush with another ability if it has no cooldown. Bloodthirst”s 3 second cooldown means it will not work. But tested out with a something without a cooldown it works if you spam the living hell out of it.

So for Fury I don”t know what you can do. You can try it with Slam but you probably wouldn”t use Slam nearly enough and wouldn”t want to be spamming it.

As I said above, it will only work if the first ability in the macro doesn”t cause a GCD, it has nothing to do with whether either of the abilities has a CD or not. This is how you can macro (almost) all your cooldowns and trinkets together, even if one of them is already on CD, it will still cast the others, since trinkets and (most) cooldowns do not cause a GCD.

That makes sense, having the game be too automatic. I can easily see people using macros for every thing.

Oh well, it was worth a shot.

Yes, it will. Currently, using /castsequence and /cast alternatively will allow both spells to be sent to the server. Thus, if the first GCD spell isn”t available, the second will be cast.
Not sure if /castrandom still works, but you could put that in for Victory Rush and it should (used to?) try to cast it when available, but only when bloodthirst is on CD. Otherwise, you”ll just need to add a modifier to the spell.
This used to be possible with /castrandom but they changed the way it worked in patch 3.2, now you would have to work out a /castsequence macro that triggers abilities once they are off CD. This worked well for the Prot Pally 969 rotation but since expansion a lot of things are now proc based so it”s less useful.
use power auras classic and make it pop up a big icon when u have victory rush available, then do a shift modifier macro so when u push shift it casts victory rush instead of blood thirst, or bind it to like a 3rd button on your mouse if u have that ability.
I dont believe this is possible. However one useful macro to save 1 button is to macro any melee ability along with charge/intercept. Just put /cast ability (hamstring is what I have there) after the rest of the macro (either /cast charge or if you already have a macro set to charge/intercept/intervene depending on the stance just put it at the end). The reason this works is that the game checks for if you”re far enough away for charge before executing the cast. Because of this it ignores the charge part if you are in melee range, and skips right to the melee ability.
I dont know about should or shouldnt but it does work :P. I have a macro which will charge/intercept/intervene depending on the stance, and if I am in melee range it hamstrings. Very nice for getting a quick hamstring after charge/etc bc I just have to press the same button again.
