Macroing trinkets/healthstones/off-gcd abilities

Say you have a healthstone you never use. (Who really actually uses it unless reminded, right?)
Say you have a trinket with an “on-use” ability you never use.
Say you have an off-GCD ability you never use. (Off the global cooldown. That means it does not trigger the 1-1.5 second cooldown of all your abilities.)

Here’s how to macro any or all of that in. I’ll use Paladins in this example with their avenging wrath off-GCD ability with their on-GCD ability Crusader Strike.

#showtooltip Crusader Strike
/use avenging wrath
/use crusader strike

Now let’s add in an “on-use” trinket like the Lessons of the Darkmaster. This will try to use that exact trinket (if equipped) every time you press the macro.

#showtooltip Crusader Strike
/use avenging wrath
/use lessons of the darkmaster
/use crusader strike

Now we can also use it by the equipment slot. Let’s suppose it’s in the top trinket slot. This will try to use any trinket in the top trinket slot every time you press the macro.

#showtooltip Crusader Strike
/use avenging wrath
/use 13
/use crusader strike

How let’s add in the healthstone and try to use both equipped trinkets every macro usage. WoW won’t use the healthstone unless you’re below full health so it won’t be wasted, but not using it at all which is what most people do is wasting it fully. This guarantees if your health is at least 1 hit point lower than maximum you’ll pop one of your healthstone charges whenever you press the macro.

#showtooltip Crusader Strike
/use avenging wrath
/use 13
/use 14
/use healthstone
/use crusader strike

Now we have to tackle the red error sounds and messages from macroing it this way. Blizzard has the error sounds you can uncheck. System -> Sounds -> Uncheck “Error Speech”. Next is the red error messages. 2 ways to attack this from my point of view. Either completely turn them off using Leatrix Plus or filter which ones are shown using Error Filter.

Note: Macroing off-GCD things into macros this way is not the most efficient way of using them, but if you aren’t using abilities/healthstones/trinkets right now then this is more efficient than not using them at all.
