View Full Version : Avoid target=self for BoP macro?

07-03-2008, 02:42 PM
My guild's MT turned me on to this site and I've been slowly crawling through the content and theorycrafting as I level a tankadin alt. I was happy to see that I'm using the same macros as seasoned vets. However, I do have one issue with the Blessing of Prot macro that I humbly confess has caused problems a couple times. Poked around here and Maintankadin so hoping I'm missing something.

Common macro for BoP is

/cast [target=target,help] Blessing of Protection;
[target=targettarget,help] Blessing of Protection
This, or the few variations I've tried, will unintentionally let me to BoP myself if the second I hit the macro the priest fades (or feigns or vanishes etc) and the mob turns back to me.

Is there a code snippet to make sure I'm not the target of the BoP? Equivalent of if target<>me then... Usually BoP'ing myself when I was trying to save the other sends the mob right back to the person (or other unlucky sap) before the next click to remove it.
