  • 5 = Moonkin Form
Rogue
  • 1 = Stealth
Warrior

Returns[edit | edit source]

nil


Example[edit | edit source]

 CastShapeshiftForm(1);

Result[edit | edit source]

Shapeshifts caster into Bear Form.


Note[edit | edit source]

Note, casting the spell again changes back to caster form. So, for instance;

 if (GetNumShapeshiftForms()==1) then CastShapeshiftForm(1);end;

In this case, the script checks if you're in Bear/Dire Bear form, and if so, casts the spell to change you back to Caster form. It has the same restrictions as other casting spells in that the trigger event needs to involve a keystroke or mouse click.


To use a particular shape in a macro and avoiding error messages, use:

 /script icon, name, active = GetShapeshiftFormInfo(index);if (active==1) then CastShapeshiftForm(index);end;

where index is the number of the shape as given above.


Example[edit | edit source]

This Example shows how to return to your human form out of any other form.

 for i=1, GetNumShapeshiftForms() do
    _, name, active = GetShapeshiftFormInfo(i);
    if( active ~= nil ) then
       DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("SQS: leaving '"..name.."'");
       CastShapeshiftForm(i)
       break;
    end
 end
