Two macros, both alike in dignity

Recommended Posts

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]
/stopcasting
/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]
/stopcasting
/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

 

Syntax:

/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 everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks 🙂
