Opener Help

Hunter
Hi,

I have been having some troubles with my opener. My guild just downed Elegon, but my opener on this fight (and others) is very inconsistent.

I begin the fight with a pre-pot and sending my pet in to attack a second before the pull.
I use this macro for my pet to move in.

/petattack
/cast dash


When the raid leader counts down from 3 I send my pet in on 2 and pre pot on 1.
The reason I send my pet in early is so I can get the most out of BW. My pet never reaches the boss first. In fact, it doesn't help much.

I then start the fight with this macro
/castsequence reset=1.5 Rapid Fire, Stampede
/cast Bestial Wrath
/cast Lynx Rush
/cast Blood Fury
/use 10
/cast rabid


In theory, shouldn't everything go off at once, except for Stampede? I know Lynx rush sometimes doesn't because my pet might not be in range yet. But I'm noticing that all my spells aren't going off.

For instance, I start the fight with that macro and BW, Blood Fury, Rabid, and Gloves are popped, but not rapid fire or lynx rush. I then press it again and maybe rapid fire goes off. Again and maybe lynx rush goes off this time. Then finally I just have to press stampede myself. This seems to happen very frequently. I spend too much time just getting my CD's off.

Then I cast Kill Commad (which seems to be very delayed) --> Serpent's sting -> Dire Beast -> Glaive Toss -> Kill command again (if my opener isn't too screwed up at this point) -> readiness -> BW and Lynx Rush - Kill Command - > Dire Beast -> Glaive Toss - > RF when BW falls off

My biggest problem is that I can't seem to get things off. I spam the button and it takes for ever to actually go off. It shouldn't be a latency issue and is definitely not a FPS issue.

To Summarize my issue:

My spells aren't going off when I press them which is resulting in wasted GCD's.
My Opener is as follows:
Hit twice for Stampede
/castsequence reset=1.5 Rapid Fire, Stampede
/cast Bestial Wrath
/cast Lynx Rush
/cast Blood Fury
/use 10
/cast rabid


Then I cast Kill Commad (which seems to be very delayed) --> Serpent's sting -> Dire Beast -> Glaive Toss -> Kill command again (if my opener isn't too screwed up at this point) -> readiness -> BW and Lynx Rush - Kill Command - > Dire Beast -> Glaive Toss - > RF when BW falls off

Any suggestions to how I can get a better opener. I really can't explain why I am having to press the same button 3 times for it to go off.
/castsequence reset=20 Bestial Wrath, Blood Fury, Kill Command, Dire Beast, Lynx Rush, Rapid Fire, Arcane Shot, Arcane Shot, Arcane Shot, Kill Command, Readiness, Kill Command, Bestial Wrath, Dire Beast, Lynx Rush

Mash for 20 sec ??? get called bad for using this !@#$ty macro
