A few good combat rogue macros

I've scurried around the official rogue forums in search for a few useful macros for a combat specced rogue such as myself. The first one incorporates riposte into a mashable sinister strike/riposte macro. I am not overly enthustiastic about it since it relies on spamming the button. It does allow you to use riposte a wee bit more at the sacrifice of full control.

/startattack
/castsequence reset=1.5 Sinister Strike, Riposte


The next one covers blind. Using blind against multiple targets can sometimes get a bit tricky, especially if both are all over you. This macro allows you to throw blind by simply moving the mouse over your intended target and press your button.

/cast [target=mouseover] Blind


Finally the I.W.I.N. Button for combat rogues. Pressing it turns on all those killing moves and ends with a sinister strike for good measure. I've not really used this one and I am told that if evasion is on CD it will end right there.

/startattack
/castsequence reset=120 Blade Flurry, Evasion, Adrenaline Rush, Sinister Strike

Regarding macros - I very rarely use them. The only one I've used extensively was a weaponswap macro for my warrior - swapping between sword+shield and my trusty 2-hander.

How many macros do you use?

Know of any other good sites that have good rogue macro resources? I'm a dagger rogue, and would love a "stun-lock" macro..

I don't know about any stun-lock macro.. actually I think it would be impossible to create one ^^

Otherwise a great rogue macro resource is:

I have some macros i have found on the web just for my opening moves like Cheap Shot, Garrote or Sap (i'm combat rogue fist weapon specc'ed, just for fun)

/cast Pick Pocket
/stopcasting
/cast Cheap Shot

Change Cheap Shot for Ambush, Garrote or Sap for different macros.

What those macros do is try to pickpocket an enemy, before the starting attack, if it has no pockets to pick, the message telling you taht will appear, but you will do the attack anyway.

I use it because i didnt remember to pickpocket very often, but now im just happy to see my bags full of stuff without thinking much ^_^

I have got to try that one... pick pocketing is such a drag but really useful as you gather both blinding and flash powder...

if you could, would you use a macro that automatically switches your mainhand weapon to a dagger when you stealth and reequips your sword/mace when you unstealth

/cast [nostealth, button:1] Stealth
/equipslot [nostealth, button:1] 16 Hook Dagger of Power
/cast [combat, button:1] vanish

/cast [stealth, button:2] Stealth
/equipslot 16 Butcher's Slicer

this is one macro i made lets you stealth with your left button an unstealth with your right or

/cast [nostealth] Stealth
/equipslot [nostealth] 16 Hook Dagger of Power
/cast [combat] vanish
(this macro is for your unstealthed combat bar)
and
/cast [stealth] Stealth
/equipslot 16 Butcher's Slicer
(this is for the stealthed combat bar
works good only problem im having is unlss i unstealth myself and not because of combat my dagger stays out till i click my unstealth button if someone knows how to get around this please tell
