Someone I know just picked up a gaming mouse with the ability to set macros that will send timed keystrokes into WoW. Is this a bannable offense?
To be clear, these are not using WoW’s macro system; they are essentially timing scripts that will replay a specific set of button presses with the intent of setting up a kill sequence of perfectly timed spell casts with the press of one button.
That’ll get you banned
But I want an advantage!
These aren’t the droids your looking for
Most of WoW is a testimony to your ability to play your character. Mastering a class and understanding every circumstance and nuance of every class and reacting accordingly is how you’ll achieve mastery over the game. Just as the legal /castsequence macros are legal, you will always be better off handling your class like a champ. The game (especially in pvp!) quickly loses its black and white feel to dps/healing rotations and you’re frequently required to make judgement calls. When do you pop your cooldowns? What happens if a proc occurs or a cooldown refreshes? When do you line of sight? As a gladiator my suggestion is always try and improve, your ability to react to every situation is simply non-programmable. Even a bad player with intuition will trump a timed macro (even if it wouldn’t get you instantly banned)
Cause sources are awesome
This guy got banned for using a programmable keyboard and with the current threat to blizzard (bots) they have begun to have very low tolerance.
