Need some macros for arcane

Mage
Hey , can someone please tell me some helpful arcane macros that will work with the current arcane rotation? =) i looked in the other macro thread.. but didnt seem to have anything up to date
#showtooltip
/cast [nochanneling] arcane blast

Make that macro for arcane missiles, nether tempest and scorch (if you use it) as well.

That way you can just mash the buttons as opposed to having to carefully time your next button press after channeling AM so as not to clip it.

You can also use the "GG" macro as some call it, which somebody just posted below me, so there you go.
This is Blatty's GG macro, use it after you have about 85% mana, six Arcane Charges, two Arcane Missile procs, and a refreshed mage bomb:

#showtooltip Alter Time
/use Mana Gem
/use Brilliant Mana Gem
/use 10
/use Arcane Power
/use Synapse Springs
/use Icy Veins
/use Berserking
/cast Presence of Mind
/cast Alter Time
/cast Pyroblast
/cast Arcane Blast
/cast Frostbolt

The macro should start you off with an Arcane Blast, let it finish casting, cast one Arcane Missile proc, another Arcane Blast, then another Arcane Missile, then Arcane Barrage before the Alter Time ends.

Edit: I should let you know that I have only tried the full AB/AM/AB/AM/ABarr rotation with a Hero out, so I am not exactly sure if you would have enough time to do it without Hero.
I noticed you're going all out haste Navius. How is that working out? Is it particularly difficult to maintain 6 stacks or are you doing the "proper" rotation where you drop stacks frequently?

I've been running full mastery and using scorch to maintain 6 stacks for the whole fight, but I've been thinking about giving full haste a shot.
the only macro i use

/cast arcane power
/cast mirror image
/use potion of jade serpent

I honestly didn't see a big enough difference to make me choose one stat configuration over the other, going all out haste makes me able to switch between Arcane and Frost freely. I am doing the rotation where I don't lose my six stacks, while fishing for AM procs with scorch, and it's been giving me good results using haste. Haste does help with mana recovery though, and I do recommend giving it a shot.
thank you guys =)
