Here are all the normal pet hotkeys in Vanilla macro format:

Code: Select all

PetAggressiveMode() - Set your pet in aggressive mode.
PetAttack()         - Instruct your pet to attack your target.
PetStopAttack()     - Stop the attack of the pet.
PetDefensiveMode()  - Set your pet in defensive mode.
PetFollow()         - Instruct your pet to follow you.
PetPassiveMode()    - Set your pet into passive mode.
PetWait()           - Instruct your pet to remain still.
And here's a couple of random examples of what you're asking for:

Use Wand + Pet Attack

Code: Select all

/run --CastSpellByName("Shoot")
/run PetAttack(); CastSpellByName("Shoot") end
Cycle Immolate, Corruption, and Shadow Bolt + Pet Attack

Code: Select all

/run --CastSpellByName("Immolate")
/run PetAttack(); local c=CastSpellByName; if IsShiftKeyDown() or n==0 then c("Immolate") n=1; elseif n==1 then c("Corruption") n=2 else c("Shadow Bolt") end
(You have to hold Shift to reset the "castsequence" counter on this one.)
Not currently playing. Just skulking and snarking~

I originally had my pet attack mapped to my spells but found this messed up, pulling more mobs and maintaining agro on specific ones. I ended up making the pet attack a separate button for more control.

I can see the macros being nice in dungeons though to avoid having to keep telling your pet to attack. I wish there was a way to tell the pet to attack my target if not already engaged.

stop using pet attack macro binde attack and passive to mousewheel scroll up for attack and down for passive . you will never again have a pet pull acident and you have full controll of pet. and then just ctrl up/down for camera..
