Misdirect Helper

Version: 1.0.7
by: rustyboy [More]

Misdirect Helper is a small addon that simplifies using Misdirection for Hunters and Tricks of the Trade for Rogues

Installation
Place the folder into `World of Warcraft\_retail_\Interface\Addons` as you would any other addon.

It is recommended to run /mdh once after installation with a friendly player being targeted to manually create the macro so you can drag it onto your action bar.


The Macro

Code:
#showtooltip Misdirection or Tricks of the Trade
/stopcasting
/stopcasting
/use [@focus,help,nodead]Misdirection
/use [@misdirectname,party,nodead]Misdirection
/use [@pet,nodead]Misdirection
Misdirect Priority
  1. Misdirect to your current focus if set (friendly, not dead)
  2. Misdirect to your misdirect target (not dead)
  3. Misdirect to your pet (not dead) *Hunter's only
If you want to override the macro, all you need to do is set your misdirect target to your focus by either:
  • Right clicking on your misdirect targets frame and selecting 'Set Focus'
  • Mousing over or targeting your misdirect target and using a macro e.g. /focus [@mouseover,exists][]
Please Note:
  • If you set your focus to an object like a Warlock Gateway the macro will not work

Macro Creation
  • Misdirect Helper will try and create the macro in one of your Character Specific Macro slots first
  • If there are no free Character Specific Macro slots it will then try to create the macro in your General Macros (Account Wide)
  • It is preferable to use one of your Character Specific Macro slots so it's suggested to free one first if this is the case
  • This will reduce any issues when using the addon with multiple characters of the same class

Macro Name
  • Rogues: MDH_Rogue
  • Hunters: MDH_Hunter
** Please make sure that you do not already have a macro with the same name in your General Macros (Account Wide) or Character Specific Macros.


Mythic Plus Dungeons (Automatic Mode)
  • At the start of a Mythic Plus Dungeon the addon will update your misdirect to the player who is assigned the party's Tank role.

Slash Commands (Manual Mode)
  • /mdh help = Displays the in game help text
  • /mdh = Updates your misdirect if you are currently targeting a friendly player

Mouseover (Manual Mode)
  • Right click a friendly unit frame and select Assign Misdirect

It is recommended to create a macro for assigning your misdirect target (/mdh). You can then target your misdirect target and use the macro to update the assigned misdirect (Out of combat only).


Misdirect Helper Requirements
  • Friendly Player Targeted (Manual Mode) = Does not update if you do not have a friendly player targeted
  • Out of Combat = Does not update if you are in combat
  • Macro Frame Closed = Does not update if your macro addon frame is open

Lua Code:
  1. local class_info = {
  2.     [3] = {macroName = 'MDH_Hunter', spellName = GetSpellInfo(34477), iconName = 'ability_hunter_misdirection'},
  3.     [4] = {macroName = 'MDH_Rogue', spellName = GetSpellInfo(57934), iconName = 'ability_rogue_tricksofthetrade'},
  4. }

that way it's language independent
Thanks, I have updated the addon with your suggestion
