Macro Confusion @.@

UI and Macro
Hey, I'm new with Macros and I've been wanting to make a macro and I'm a Fire Mage that would cast Living Bomb, Inferno Blast, Combusion, Inferno Blast (In that order) with just one button, I tried doing /castsequence Living Bomb, etc, etc. but it would only cast one or two spells. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
A cast sequence requires one click per spell in the sequence.

There is no way to cast all of those with one click.
How can I make that macro then? What is the command?

Your answer. Just make a /castsequence and keep clicking that macro untill you reach the end, then repeat.

Short answer: No

Long answer: Don't macro that. Even as a castsequence it will result in failure. As a fire mage you're primarily casting five spells: Living Bomb, Inferno Blast, Combustion, Pyroblast and Fireball. The cooldowns of Inferno Blast and Combustion do not line up. The duration of Living Bomb and the cooldown of Inferno Blast do not line up either. A castsequence of those abilities would result in a huge loss in dps.

I would suggest you take advantage of modifier macros. You can easily put the core fire abilities on 3 buttons.

#showtooltip
/cast [mod:alt] Combustion; Pyroblast


#showtooltip
/cast [mod:alt] Flamestrike; Fireball


#showtooltip
/cast [mod:alt] Living Bomb; Inferno Blast


You should be able to put those macros into action buttons 2-4 and use your thumb to toggle the Left Alt key. You may not like it at first, but modifier keys are important for getting all your abilities onto your action bar.
