    Seals changing during combat

    lately I have noticed that my seal will change to another or to no seal at all during combat. I run minimal addons and cannot figure out why this is happening.


    is there anyone else that is or has had this issue?

    Have you checked your macros?

    Also, any fight with mind control has a high chance to change your seal if you get hit by it.

    definitely not the mind control issue as the last time I was trying to figure out why it was happening was while farming the adds ahead of the second boss in stormstout brewery for lovely charms. as I never have the need to change from my healing seal while tanking that would be a no on macros as well, but thanks.

    If you change glyphs your seal can drop also.

    Seal keybinds are ctrl+F1,F2,F3,F4 as default. You're probably using F's right after using a ctrl+x keybind without releaseing ctrl first. That'd be my best guess. Change seal keybinds and see if it helps.

    Seals also trigger a GCD, how could you not notice manually swapping them?

    I'm curious as to this.

    It'd be hard not to notice a lost GCD each time your seal switched, no?

    As someone said, check your keybinds to your seals. Unbind them and play for a bit, and play without ANY addons, especially any bar modification addons.

    Something I do when I find things on my screen acting weird is I record it and see where XYZ could have gone wrong.

    This is probably not it...but I know Imperial Vizier changes seals during his mind control. I was wondering why my seals were changed for the longest time

    Vizier, Sha of Anger, Amber shaper.... they all change my bloody seals. As if that isn't enough, every blasted MC mechanics in the game blow BOTH wings and guardian. Every. Damn. Time.

    But... Seal of Blood has been gone for a long time!

    Badumpcha.

    Stance/seal changing mechanics are literally the worst though, the only thing which makes it worse is them blowing your CD's while they're at it.

    I remember doing Vizier and thinking man my DPS seems quite shitty, Then noticed from the MC he changed my seal to Seal of Insight and I just hadn't been paying attention to it for the remainder of the encounter which isn't that long but still long enough lol.

    Don't forget using crown control abilities on the healers also. Hammer of Justice is used every time I forget to dump it when it comes off cooldown.

    Guess I just need to pay more attention than I usually do when I am mind controlled.

    I would put money on CC mechanics such as Vizier, or you are fat fingering keybinds, and or macros. Check your macro text. And if all of this is untrue then you have some sort of nonassignable problem.
