    Stop cast macro not working even with double line

    So I'm trying to create a stop cast macro for my counter shot. I've checked various places on the web and all sources say two /stopcasting lines are required, however in practice this isn't working for me.

    I've got

    #showtooltip counter shot
    /stopcasting
    /stopcasting
    /cast counter shot

    I can see it trying to use the counter shot but it's not stopping the cast no matter how many lines I put in or how many times I spam.

    Ty in advance for help.

    Code:
    #Showtooltip Counter Shot
    /stopcasting
    /stopcasting
    /stopcasting
    /stopcasting
    /cast Counter Shot
    /cast Counter Shot


    That's mine and it works, no idea why yours wouldn't

    Basically, the answer is that "it should work." And if it isn't, it's probably user error. Are you sure you're interrupting in a timely manner?

    Get rid of that show tooltip line for maximum stopcasting

    either latency issue or addon blocking the macro.

    I have 2 lines and it works every time.

    Also not sure if it makes any difference but on the #showtooltip line you don't need the spell name.

    You have to make sure you use capitals for the spells or it does not work

    Weird, it should be working.

    What's the keybind for the macro?

    This is not true.


    Likely an addon messing with stuff. Does it actually stop the cast or does it just do nothing?

    Just jump to stop casting.

    Doesn't work for hunter, steady and cobra shot can be cast while moving.

    That's the point! Very good comment.

    #showtooltip
    /stopcasting
    /stopcasting
    /cast Counter Shot
    /startattack
    /script UIErrorsFrame:Clear()
    This is proper one, only 2 times stopcasting - first to interupt yourself from casting cobra shot, second to prevent autoattacks. UIErrorsFrame to clear and stop getting things like over circling.
