Quick Target Macros

This project is experimental.

This project is only experimental and may change drastically between now and when it comes out of experimental status. It may even be disapproved once that happens, worst-case.

Be forewarned before downloading anything from this project.

Quickly builds /target macros for immediate use. I wrote it to help find mobs when solo questing. Too often, when a macro would've helped, I procrastinated making one because of the tedious process:

  1. /macro
  2. Find my /target macro.
  3. Edit the macro for the new target.
  4. Drag it onto my bars.

This mod reduces it to a single step:

  1. /qt mobname

Or even,

  1. /qt mobname1, mobname2, mobname3, etc.

The macro uses a temporary keybind, so you don't have to waste a real keybind on it; the bind only lasts as long as you have the macro active. I recommend binding it to your S-key, since it's easy to spam and you're unlikely to miss it for the brief time it's unavailable.

Use /qtm or /qtmacros for options, /qt or /qtname for building macros.


BTW I've learned of another mod with a name similar to this. I need a new name before I make a release version. Also I can't decide how to best present lists of names, and adding and removing of names, to the user. These are the big things keeping it as experimental.

    It would be great to take it one step more from being only a target macro to being a target/cast macro. So you can add: /qtname /cast arcane blast

    I want the user to be able to change the 2-letter alias, but I have no timeline for that except Cataclysm; I'm making this so I can tag quest mobs faster in Cata, heh.

    For now, any conflict can be gotten around by using /quartzt for Quartz Timer, which is probably a better idea anyway.

    /qt is used by Quartz timer, part of Quartz. http://www.wowace.com/addons/quartz/
