Worba's Guide to Staying Human (for worgen!)

#1 Unread post by Worba » Fri Jul 15, 2011 4:12 pm

This is intended as a resource for worgen players who simply prefer to remain in human form outside of combat, as much as possible - and with a minimum amount of hassle.

As some may know, there used to be addons that handled this for us, until scripts lost the ability to cast Transform() back in 4.1 - now it's just down to macros.

Worgen Mounts Macro. This is designed to work with a mount (e.g. land or flying mount - not Running Wild), and it ensures that when you mount up, you will also shift to human form, all with one click (if you are not already in human form that is - if you are already in human form, the shapeshift is omitted ... replace "ebon gryphon" with desired mount name, obv).

#showtooltip Ebon Gryphon
/cancelaura Darkflight
/use [nomounted] Running Wild
/stopcasting
/use [nomounted] Two Forms
/use Ebon Gryphon

Running Wild Macro. This ensures that when you "dismount" from Running Wild, you will also transform to human form in the same click.

#showtooltip [indoors][combat][mod][btn:2] Darkflight;Running Wild
/use [indoors][combat][mod][btn:2] Darkflight;[mounted] Two Forms;Running Wild
/dismount [mounted]

If you're in a situation where riding isn't an option (indoors, or combat), it will activate darkflight (you can also get darkflight under any circumstance by right clicking on the macro). Otherwise, if you're not mounted (remember Running Wild counts as mounted), it casts Two Forms and dismounts you; since Running Wild always puts you in wolf form, this will reliably take you out of it.

Worgen Dungeon Macro. This one is dead simple and is designed for places like dungeons, where you'd like an easy way of reverting to human form, and mounting isn't (usually) possible.

#showtooltip
/use [combat][mod] Kill Shot;Two Forms

Position is everything here - whether you prefer keybinding or clicking, a [combat] driven Kill Shot macro is a nice place for "post combat" functions like this, loot-a-rang, etc. Not quite as seamless as the above macros but it's the next best thing (for other classes, simply replace kill shot with Execute or the like).

Edited macro 1 to prevent it from reverting you to wolf form if you attempt to dismount from a flying mount while in midair.

Technical note for those interested: Running Wild actually does 2 things simultaneously: 1) casts an instant "wolf form" effect, and 2) begins channeling your running stance. If you macro /use Running Wild /stopcasting, then you get the wolf form only, without consuming a CD; no matter which form you were in previously, this provides a reliable starting point from which we can then cast Two Forms and know that it will always put us in human form. A bit roundabout but it all works in one click, and so far I haven't seen anything else that does this since 4.1...

Worgen Forms Macros for druids.

These macros were written by Imbastic and are taken from http://www.mmowned.com/forums/world-of- ... -form.html, so kudos to him for this.

Although I don't play a worgen druid (my druid is a troll), apparently regardless of what form they started in, activating a druid animal form and then canceling out of it leaves them in wolf form - another nice baseline-setter for us to follow Two Forms with, as below...

Worgen Cat Form Macro
#showtooltip
/cancelform [noform: 1/3]
/cast Cat Form(Shapeshift)
/cast Two Forms(Racial)

Worgen Bear Form Macro
#showtooltip
/cancelform [noform: 1/3]
/cast Bear Form(Shapeshift)
/cast Two Forms(Racial)

Worgen Travel Form Macro
#showtooltip
/cast Travel Form(Shapeshift)
/cast Two Forms(Racial)
/cancelform [noform: 2/3]
/cast Two Forms(Racial)

Worgen Druid Mount Macro
#showtooltip
/Cast [flyable, nocombat, noswimming] Swift Flight Form
/cancelform [noform: 1/3]
/cast Two Forms(Racial)
/cast [swimming] Aquatic Form
/cancelform [noform: 3/3]
/cast Two Forms(Racial)
/cast [noflying] (mount name)

Worba, after reading this actually makes me ponder starting up a Worgen myself.

if only they would allow cross-realm BOA's that would be a given then. I need my BOAS!

Clever, but seems silly to me. If you wanted to be in human form most of the time, why not role a human? The point of rolling a worgen is because you have to be in worgen form most of the time...

Its different than that. I think what Worba feels (as I do) is that its awesome to transform into a worgen to fight, but when you're all done fighting and the rage has gone away, perhaps it would be neat to automatically revert back to human form when you're in a "clear state of mind".

Just think of it kind of like how the dragons act usually. Queen Alex doesnt stay in dragon form all the time, only in the heat of battle. Then she returns to that super sexy elven chick.

Ooohh I see, that's fair enough! Sorry about that. :)

Now if Worba simply cannot stand Worgen in any form and detest the very essence of their being, then I would agree that its silly.

Darn it. Now you have me wanting to roll a Worgen. I don't have *time* for another alt. :x

Discovered that if you run the mount macro while Darkflight is still active, you will mount up - but remain in worgen form, as the Darkflight buff requires you to be in worgen form throughout.

Modified the mount macro to include the following - this ensures you get the form you want regardless of whether you recently triggered Darkflight:

/cancelaura Darkflight
