Two macros, both alike in dignity

Except that one works, and the other one doesn't.


Polymorph Macro (Works):

#show Polymorph
/clearfocus [modifier:alt]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]; [target=focus,dead]
/clearfocus [target=focus,help]
/castrandom [target=focus,exists,harm] Polymorph(Turtle), Polymorph; Polymorph(Pig), Polymorph



Counterspell Macro (Doesn't)

#show Counterspell
/clearfocus [modifier:alt]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]; [target=focus,dead]
/clearfocus [target=focus,help]
/cast [target=focus,exists,harm] Counterspell, Counterspell



Side by side comparison here; it's a bit wide, so I didn't want to embed the image.
I don’t see a bit of difference in the parlance, if you discount therandom bit of the polymorph macro, and that shit’s only there because I want pigs and turtles.
I have been using these macros since BC, and come WOD the counterspell one is like lolnope. I’ve taken to having to switch targets each time I need to counterspell, and that annoys me. I know that there are other macros posted on the mage page, but I want to know.... Does anybody have a clue why the counterspell macro is not working??

Theres a difference between castrandom and cast



/castrandom spell, spell


You separate the list of spells with a comma "," and castrandom will select one for you.



/cast [conditions]spell ; spell





if the first condition is not met, it moves to the section after the semicolon.



Correct syntax:

/cast [target=focus,exists,harm] Counterspell; Counterspell

Oh sweet Light. Removing the second iteration of counterspell worked. Thank you.


I'd swear that I haven't changed the macros since I made them in bc. Did the way that macros are processed changed?


I did switch factions. It's entirely possible that I had to recreate them, but you'd think I'd remember having to do that.

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.
