Help with general targetting macro questionFollow

Hello.

Seems like with multiple targets in those pesky dungeons, some, not all tanks are choosing to use mark targets with attack1, attack2 etc in order to facilitate battles. This is a great thing, but how does one work with the tank to make sure you are attacking the right mob at the right time?

I see /assist <t> where you target the tank then hit the macro which will target whatever mob he's actively attacking at the time.
I see /target <attack1> where you target the mob marked as attack1 by the tank.

These are great, but once attack1 mob is dead, can you hit the same attack1 macro and get to attack2 mob or do you need to make another macro for attack2 mob?

I don't really want to make a macro for each marked attack mob, i.e. attack1 through attack5, so 5 macros just to target the proper mob.

Is there a way to target the next marked mob after you kill the current mob using just 1 macro? i.e. does /target <attack1> target attack2 if attack1 is no longer around?

I think I figured out the solution to this problem myself.

The macro would run as follows:

/target <attack1>
/target <attack2>
/target <attack3>
/target <attack4>
/target <attack5>
/wait 2.5 or 3
/ac "Auto-attack" <t>

So if it's the first mob to attack after the tank has marked, then it should target attack1 then the rest of the lines would fail until the wait statement then auto-attack would start. If attack1 is not there, then it'd go to 2 then 3 etc.

Does this work? Looks like it would just instantly tab through all the marked mobs then wait 2.5 sec then auto attack...

/target <attack5>
/target <attack4>
/target <attack3>
/target <attack2>
/target <attack1>
/wait 2.5 or 3
/ac "Auto-attack" <t>

That would solve the tab through issue as once you have killed target one, its no longer there to target so you should land on target 2.

As a tank I just put a mark in my shield lob ability. Saves a lot of time not having to mark a bunch of stuff at the start of every pull, especially using a controller.

/macroicon "Shield Lob"
/marking attack1
/ac "Shield Lob" <t>

Then I make sure to open with it (trivial when pulling) when I switch to a new target, usually when current mob is close to death and I know I can move to next target without losing agg.
