Raid break macro
Return to board index
Ok so, I wanted to make a macro for raid breaks, with a countdown, my idea was the following:
/raid Break started! Be Back in 15 minutes!
/in 300 /raid 10 minutes remaining!
/in 600 /raid 5 minutes remaining!
/in 840 /raid 1 minute remaining!
/in 870 /raid 30 seconds remaining!
/in 890 /raid 10 seconds remai ning!
/in 900 /raid Breaktime over!
But is there any way I can abort the macro? For instance when we decide to move on after 10 minutes, since everyone is back and ready?
Thanks in advance,
, combined with a modifier this might work if you hit it again
just not that good with stuff like that
on a different note, are your breaks always 15 minutes? There should be raid Addons that start a cooldown bar, if everyone in your raid uses the same addon they can see the bar. That way you can save a macro slot (or more if my question made you thinking of 3 different kind of macros for different periods of time :P)
Since the /in commands were already executed, you'd need a way to tell that addon to cancel the future commands. I don't know if /in has a way to reset or not, but that's where you should look.
If you, somehow, still use an addon which uses the old
library, this script might work/run LibStub("AceEvent-2.0"):CancelAllScheduledEvents()
Yeah we just use DBM custom bars.
Ok I tried some stuff, and I noticed even the basic macro doesn't work, it just shows the first message and nothing from there on. Is there any limit to the /in command that could cause this?
Also, we don't all have the same bossmods, I personally use bigwigs because of the tiny range-radar etc. Some others do so aswell, and others use DBM.
Any additional feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Edit: Yes, the breaks are always 15 minutes, except for the occasions when everyone's ready to go earlier.
For you guys who use BigWigs, you can just type /break 0 or somehow incorporate this in the above macro. But i don't know the commands to make this kind of macro work that way.
When properly made, it should start a break timer of your choice, for example 15 min. and when you hit that button again, it should cancel it.
Would be nice that someone who's more expert with this answers it.
I'm kinda curious too but I don't mind typing /break 0.
In fact, it might be better to manually type it each time due to accidentally hitting the button twice or more times, for example when you hit it the first time, the 15 minutes start counting and then you hit it again by accident when there's let's say 11 minutes remaining.
This way everyone will get the wrong countdown and the situation could create some confusion or even stress on when to come back as it will create wrong info and they will think they got back "late" or "early", if you know what i mean.
So for me,
the best bet is to manually type it into chat and without having it on a hotkey.
