This post is not hunter specific, but it’s something I’d been meaning to share for awhile…
My Handy Dandy Fishing Macro
/equip Mastercraft Kalu’ak Fishing Pole
/equip Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat
/console Sound_EnableSFX 0
/use Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat
/console Sound_EnableSFX 1
Yes folks… I have a macro for just about everything. 😉
While this may seem needless and a bit silly, it’s actually quite practical. This macro takes care of many tasks…
- It equips all of my fishing gear.
- It automatically applies a lure when the buff falls off.
- It casts my fishing pole.
Pressing the macro for the first time will equip your fishing gear and apply a lure. After that, the macro will simply cast your fishing line. When your lure wears off, the macro will automatically reapply it when needed. There are a couple of other lines in there to mute the error spam (fishing lure not ready yet, etc.), but still allow you to still hear the whiz of the fishing reel, as well as the splash of water when you have a fish on the line.
The macro just basically makes it really easy to toss on all of your +fishing gear, equip your pole, and never forget to keep your fishing lure buff applied. Nothing super fancy, but a space-saving convenience macro nonetheless. It’s a one-button solution for fishing. 🙂
Those of you who like to do a little fishing now and again – you should try it. Be sure to replace or add any additional pieces of equipment if your fishing gear differs from mine.
I created it a few months ago when I started going after the Blacktip Shark. I haven’t had any luck catching it yet, but at least the event caused me to script this macro. 😉
