Topic Castsequence Macro Broken Sometimes
Edited by Halister on 11/15/12 8:13 PM (PST)
I have a lot of keybinds as a Frost Mage and I depend on a simple castsequence macro to put Frost Bomb and Fire Blast on the same key because I always use them in.... wait for it... sequence. Every so often, and this does happen quite often with the massive number of dailies I do every day, I will hit my macro and it won't move down the sequence, disallowing Fire Blast to cast. I'm not sure what's causing it. I give myself a whole 5 seconds to hit it a second time and it doesn't even change.
If anybody could enlighten me on what's happening, I'd be grateful. And yes, I am hitting it a 2nd time within the 5 second reset window.

I can try that, but you'd think if that were the case, the game would have trouble casting Frost Bomb. The castsequence just isn't progressing after the first cast. I'll try Mage Bomb in my macro for a while.
EDIT: Just tried that. Putting Mage Bomb in the macro completely breaks the sequence 100% of the time, but that at least points to the spell transformation as the likely root of the problem. WTB a fix.

A modifier is not the solution to the problem; the macro should work as posted.
The usual cause of this behavior is having the spell on your action bar instead of the macro, but the fact that the macro usually works is confusing. Tell me, do you often change specs? it's possible that you have the macro on your bar on one spec and the spell on the other (this is why it's a bad idea to turn off macro text on your action bars)
If the macro has never worked properly for you (and it is the same macro posted by the OP), you probably have the Frost Bomb spell on your action bar instead of the macro.
