/run local macro

i just came back for prepatch and wanted to knockout some of the secrets but my /run local macros that track progress don’t print out into my chat box.
i remember them working as i completed some of them back in 8.2, i’ve tried with and without chat addons and still nothing.
I’m currently onto baa’l’s darksign, using the /run local macro from wowhead.


Hi Joemonk, I’m having the same problems with my Baa’l progress macro. It looks like we need this leader on the quest flagged completed variable “thingy”. (disclaimer - I don’t know what I’m doing, i just google super hard)

The catch with the Baa’l macro is that it becomes >255 characters. So i split mine up into two macros - cause I force stuff like a putz:

/run local N,t={“SCROLL”,“1”,“2”,“3”,“4”,“5”,“6”},{52819,52809,52810,52818,52817,52816}for s,k in pairs(N)do d=C_QuestLog.IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(t[s])print(k,"=",d and “Y” or “N”)end

/run local N,t={“6”,“7”,“8”,“9”,“10”,“11”,“12”,“13”},52815,52814,52813,52812,53632,53633,53634,52827}for s,k in pairs(N)do d=C_QuestLog.IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(t[s])print(k,"=",d and “Y” or “N”)end

Good luck on your quest! Stay scrappy my friend.

/run local N,t,d={"SCROLL"},{52819,52809,52810,52818,52817,52816,52815,52814,52813,52812,53632,53633,53634,52827} for i=2,14 do N[i]=i-1 end for s,k in pairs(N)do d=C_QuestLog.IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(t[s]) print(k,"=",d and "Y" or "N")end

Should get you to a single macro. I haven’t looked at what it’s doing (the SCROLL entry looks like it serves no purpose) so…
