I was really annoyed last night in Naxx-25 having to swap back and forth between Prot and Arms.

First, I had to change my dual spec tree over, then swap gear (I use ItemRack) then change my stance. This got tedious after the dozenth time of swapping so I commited myself to finding a way to make this simpler. Today I found it.

Make 2 new macros named ActDPS and ActDef and give them the ? icon.

Give them the following Macro Text

#showtooltip
/cast Battle Stance
/script EquipSet("DPS")
/usetalents 2

and then

#showtooltip
/cast Defensive Stance
/script EquipSet("Prot")
/usetalents 1

Change the 1/2 to whichever talent spec you have set to that group.

Now, with one click of a button you can change completely from one thing to the other, no sweat. (Note that you cannot change gear or talents in combat)

To add to this tidbit -- if you're using outfiter instead of

/script EquipSet("DPS")

use

/outfitter wear DPS

Fantastic!  Love it!  I definitely would enter fights in Defensive, when I should be in Battle or Fury, and this happens quite frequently.  Will definitely get my mileage in on (probably slightly modified version of) this.
