Not really sure why nobody has added this, I've been using it since IV was added to the game


#showtooltip Cold Snap
/Cast Icy Veins
/Cast Cold Snap


If you haven't used IV and you cold snap, it will use it before you snap so you don't waste it, given it has no GCD and costs very little mana.

Can you please explain to me what the "!" is doing for your ae macros? I have several similar macros with no "!" and they seem to work just the same as if I click the spell not the macro.

Atimos, I can't get your macro to work

FrostFullCDs (assumes on-use trinket in slot 13 [top slot])
#showtooltip
/castsequence reset=10/combat !Freeze,Mirror Image,13,Deep Freeze,Flame Orb,Icy Veins,Cold Snap,Deep Freeze,Flame Orb,Frostbolt


I made a button for it, but when i target something, the sequence ends after freeze. I double/triple checked the macro, all CD's were full. I like the idea of the macro, but can't get it to work

Atimos (in response to thread number 46),

I had to look up "reticule" in the dictionary because I still do not have an understanding of what you are saying that the ! does in the macro.

Dictionary.com:
ret·i·cule [ret-i-kyool]
–noun
1.a small purse or bag, originally of network but later of silk, rayon, etc.
2.Optics . reticle.

Unfortunatly, this does done help me understand what you are talking about. Can you please brake it down for me using simple words that "most" wow players can understand?

What does placing ! in an ae macro do for the player? Or maybe just simplify the explanation and explain to me what a "targeting reticule" is?

They're talking about that green circle thingy that shows where you're gonna drop your spell.

With the ! in the macro, the green circle thingy doesn't disappear if you hit the button more than once.

Question for a pvp macro. Is there a way to have a macro change your armor? My thought is that if you cast counterspell, you're likely fighting a clothie and mage armor would be more appropriate, so perhaps /cast counter spell /cast mage armor. Likewise, if your casting frost nova, you're likely fighting melee, so /cast frost nova, /cast frost armor. Both armor casts would be wasted gcd if you already have those armors up, but, if not, those armors could be handy. Thoughts?

I was hoping I could just add /petattack before FB/FFB/IL etc. so whatever I'm attacking, my pet is attacking. Unfortunately every time you press any of those macros to use the abilities, the pet restarts its cast...so if you're spamming something your put just stands there.

I was hoping I didn't have to just dedicate a bind to it...I already press CTR+1 constantly to make it attack my target so I guess an easier bind would be called for but is there really no way to make /petattack or something similar spammable?

Thanks
