    Demo Wands

    Did they fix the wand auto shooting while in meta as Demo bug?

    @wmoyer06 I think Windsong is fixed now. Looking at the wand bug (again. Stupid wands.)

    Today the bug was not fixed. I regret even now the decission to play demo this evening.

    I love Demo, but it just sucks that the only available epic 1h upgrade is the wand from MoV(Which interrupts the GCD between your abilities in Meta)

    Wasn't fixed in our raid last night when I had to swap to demonology for AoE on Feng and not being prepared enough for it by having another weapon at hand. While I couldn't completely remove the autoattacking wand, I managed to reduce it by a lot through macroing most of my abilities and avoiding right clicking on targets. I'm sure this band aid has been posted elsewhere and known to most (I haven't been completely up to date on demo discussions), but it doesn't hurt spreading it more.
    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /stopattack
    /use Spell Name
    /stopattack
    As mentioned above I still had some issues, but it's working somewhat as a temporary band aid until they can fix their coding.

    Those macros will also stop your real demo autoattacks
    This was what I thought about Locktanking before Scumbag Greg took it away

    Just wanted to make a thread about this, but found this one. I raid mainly as affliction, so it's not that big concern for me, but this is annoying as hell when I'm questng as demo.

    I think wand IS the autoattack.
    That's why you need me.... Need someone to punish you for your sins.

    You have your own autoattack in Metamorphosis, the wand will overwrite that. With that macro you are able to stop the wand and cast again, but your old real demo autoattack won't come back anyway.
    So it's still a huge DPS loss and not a viable band aid

    Using a wand seems to prevent autoattack in metamorphosis in general. That macro will just fix some of this clunky behaviour, but right now even that is not viable, because you end up missing up to 5k DPS depending on the boss fight. (with damage increasing buffs/debuffs like Elegon even more)

    Wand design = Devs sucks.

    Fix the loot table, instead of fixing bugs. Remove all the wands from the game.
    GC : We try very hard not to monkey around with things just for the sake of changing, but it's easy to play the "I didn't see feedback on X, therefore there wasn't feedback on X" card.
