How Can I Make A WoW Shaman Totem Macro?

I am leveling up a shaman and am enjoying it, but it gets a bit tedious clicking on 3 different buttons to cast 3 different totems before each fight. Is there a way I could make a macro that could cast all three
totems with only one click?

I can understand how tedious it can be to keep casting the same things over and over again. I just started a paladin and continuously casting Blessing of Might over and over again is a pain. Anyway there is a way to put all the common totems you use together on one single button but it still will involve the same three clicks, but just on the macro button and not 3 different buttons. Still not exactly what you want but that just shows the limits of the World of Warcraft macros.

So, anyway, I believe you will find this extremely useful and will still simplify your totem casting. Here is the code:

/castsequence Grace of Air Totem, Strength of Earth Totem, Mana Spring Totem

Now, the /castsequence actually sets these totems up in a sequence but doesn’t cast all of them with one button press. Of course, you can change what rank of totem you want to use by adding (Rank X) where X is the rank of totem you want right after the name of the totem.

The above code will cast these all in a set sequence so if you click the button twice you will cast Grace of Air Totem and Strength of Earth Totem. Then the next time you click the button (even if it is 30 minutes later) it will cast Mana Spring Totem. But as players we all know that conditions change and you may not want to cast all the totems before wanting to reset the sequence.

That is where the reset command comes in. You can change the above macro to include the reset command and this is what it would look like:

/castsequence reset=10 Grace of Air Totem, Strength of Earth Totem, Mana Spring Totem

The way it works now is if there is more than a 10 second delay between button presses of the macro it will start the sequence from the beginning. So if you hit the button twice to cast Grace of Air Totem and Strength of Earth Totem, and then wait 15 seconds before pressing the button again it will cast Grace of Air Totem.

    You may want to change the time to 110 as it is 10 seconds before the totems expire. As well as adding in Totemic Call at the end if u want to end the time off quicker, lets say just incase there is a patrol and your totems will agro them.

    I’ve got a 70 shammy and was wanting to make some macros to use during raids and has a really nice explanation on a bunch of diffrent macro set-ups if you’re interested. Helped a bunch for mine :) But I do appreciate the explanation on the “reset=10″ portion of the macro was a little confused with that
