which works fine until I get a hot streak crit and i'm already halfway through a Fireball cast and hit the macro only to realize Inferno Blast isn't off CD so i've interrupted a cast for no reason and lost dps. My question is can I make a macro to not interrupt casting if the spell isn't off CD or will I have to make a weakaura to track Inferno Blast CD? How do you guys manage it?
You can finish casting the Fireball and queue up the Inferno Blast to hit instantly after and it will preempt the "landing" of the fireball even if the target is right on top of you. As to your actual question, I don't know.
Really? It doesn't increase dps to stop fireball when you get a hot streak proc to Inferno Blast then Pyro?
Not only that but when you get the hot streak from inferno blast, you only want to use the !pyro when you get another heating up proc (unless the !pyro is in danger of dropping off), check out the fire mage guide sticky, its a good read
Fireball has a travel time of 0.5 seconds and blizzard made an update stating that the HU proc will last 0.75 seconds after another spell has landed so you can sneak a Inferno blast in with that time
While bumping your post count with a load of questionably useful one liners in a load of threads is a noble endeavor, it'd help if the info was accurate.
Fireball, Pyroblast and Frostfire Bolt have a maximum travel time of 0.75 seconds (regardless of the graphic). The travel time can be less if you are nearer the target, but that is what it is capped at. Heating Up removal from a non-crit has a 0.25 second delay built in allowing you to chain cast without having to stop casting and correctly use Inferno Blast, all while being camped right on top of a boss.
