Did Blizz break Castsequence Reset Macros????

General Discussion
/castsequence reset=20 Tiger Palm, Jab, Jab, Jab, Jab, Jab, Jab

That's doesn't reset on the same target anymore

Why not?

I have to actually get off the target for it to reset. If I'm on a boss, once the castsequence runs out, it never resets.

Very frustrated need some help please.

####Edit Problem solved.....ish
Wouldn't that be reset = target?

You have reset = 20, which means it resets after 20 seconds, regardless of target.
They broke sequenced macros when 6.0 dropped.

It's nothing but priority/available stuff now.

Doh! You are right, thanks. Been pulling my hair out the last couple days over this. Thanks

######EDIT Nevermind, still doesn't work.

Sorry, I mean they broke timed/delayed macros.
I tried what snow said it doesn't work, I think this other guy is right.

Very frustrated because for my monk tank this macro is needed. I'm not a druid tank spamming 1 or 2 buttons, I'm pushing a TON of buttons

yeah, so that's ridiculous, guess its back to my pally for tanking. This is such an unnecessary change, get rid of tiger palm then blizz, we brewmasters have way more buttons to manage then every other tank, get this thing off my keybind!!!

I just googled what you said cant find anything, do you have a link or something or was this a sneaky non patch note change?
The only thing that changed with castsequences in WoD was the removal of "0" as a filler spell that always advanced the sequence.

reset=N (where N is some number) is an idle timer, meaning the sequence only resets N seconds after your most recent use of the macro.

reset=target resets the sequence when you change targets.

Regardless of your reset conditions, the sequence should reset when you cast the last spell in it. Is it not working this way for you?

I believe you can chain them too, like reset = target/combat/30 - where it would reset on any target switch or on dropping combat or after 30 seconds regardless.

No its not, the only cast sequence that's working is without timers

Not totally familiar with Brewmaster, but there are a lot of abilities that are not on the global cooldown that you can simply macro to another ability to simplfy things...if that helps.

Example: I put victory rush and shield block together.
I've been searching all over the internet for the last 30 minutes and can find nothing on this change.

This is bothering me way more than the flying vs no flying thing.

Blizz, you need to be clear about what's going on with macros in this new xpac, I'm not even sure how to write them now!
I just made a macro on my hunter:

/castsequence reset=5 steady shot, arcane shot, arcane shot, arcane shot, arcane shot, arcane shot, arcane shot

It resets itself long before I get through the full list.

I don't know what your issue is, OP. Maybe try deleting the macro, and re-entering it? Maybe something got corrupted, but creating a new macro will fix it.
So I just made a test macro and I can verify that reset macros do indeed work.

#showtooltip
/castsequence reset=6 Crusader Strike, Exorcism, Judgment

Works with no problem at all without need to swap targets, not sure why yours is not working... Have you tired adjusting the reset seconds?

Also as someone said earlier the reset counter starts from when you last use the macro, using it again refreshes it to 20 secs.

Try this, attack a training dummy 3 or 4 times with your macro then wait 20 secs just auto attacking, it should reset

Are you kidding me?

Could it something about Tiger Palm? Im going to test a macro on another char, thanks for the heads up
