The “Oh Shit” Button

Having picked up the [Vial of the Sunwell], which doesn’t activate the global cooldown, I thought it might not be a bad idea to make up an emergency panicbutton for healing use, for those times when Lay on Hands is just overkill (or you’re going to need mana before your potion cooldown is up).

/use Vial of the Sunwell
/cast Divine Favor
/cast Holy Shock

All three items are on various cooldowns, so you may wish to add the following line to the end of the macro:

/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear()

which will suppress “Spell is not ready yet.” error messages.

Provided nothing’s on cooldown, this will deliver a crit Holy Shock and trigger the Vial of the Sunwell heal, for a total of 4200-5600 healing in one instant cast (range dependent on +heal, and whether the Vial crits). Extremely useful for spike damage situations!

(If you’re beyond 20 yards, the Holy Shock won’t proc, but the Vial still works out to 40 yards.)

  1. Nice, one comment on the errors in the macro.

    Don’t you want to hide() the error UI first, then after the actions clear() and/or show()?

    Can’t remember exactly as I am at work at the moment, but my macro for guaranteed HL crit hides the errors window then does the action then shows it again.

  2. Heh, I do wish there was an animation on this trinket. But boy do I love it. Nice macro, should think of something similar for a dr00d, I should.

  3. wouldn’t it be better for vial after shock? that was if vial isn’t full you can get an extra 200 energy if it isn’t full :)

  4. Dangerchrist – But when you use the Holy Shock, you get Global cooldown, which you dont get when using the Vial first
