    Death Pact

    I've been advancing through fights in the Brawler's Guild as Frost, and a few fights back I realized that I was only narrowly surviving because my Death Pact wasn't going off. I kept getting "target is not bound to you" errors trying to cast it, even with both Army of the Dead and Raise Dead active. One of my friends suggested that I try a "/cast [target=Risen Ally] Death Pact" macro but it didn't work either, and another friend swears up and down he's seen DKs in the Brawler's Guild using Death Pact, citing ghoul health depleting and DK health increasing.
    Am I missing something here? Am I macroing it incorrectly? Or is it just well and truly bugged?

    I do believe the macro is:
    /target Risen Ally
    /cast Death Pact
    /targetlasttarget
    Call to arms, the trumpets sound
    Hand puppets storm the base, flags up now cannons rage
    All clowns head for the rear, slingshots fire to the air
    Toy horses start the charge, Robot chessmen standing guard
    Crossfire to the marionettes, Slip into the edge of death...

    Update, if I manually target the ghoul, I can cast Death Pact, but not with the targetting string I was trying.

    I'll try this one out next, hopefully it'll work.

    I used to get that bug when I used the macro, but I stopped using any and just bound DP to another key (forgot why, probably because I hit it by accident on summoning to often >.>). Either way, if the above suggestion doesn't work, try it without a macro.

    I tried it without a macro and it still required me to manually target the ghoul to cast. :P

    This is a strange issue.

    Death pact doesn't normally require you to target anything, it should just work.

    I suggest you report this as a bug.

    I think there is something generally wrong with our pet in the arena.

    Death Pact is not working unless you target Timmy directly and Unholy-specced he doesn't even get stacks of Shadow Infusion, making it impossible to transform him.

    These bugs seem related to the fact that spectators could heal pets inside the arena. Maybe something about the classification. Seems like pets are technically not yours in there.
