    Lorgok's Starsurge macro.

    I can't find any information as to what macro he uses, but Im trying to figure it out.

    If you watch Method's heroic Durumu video, I noticed that every time he spams Wrath or Starfire, he also spams Starsurge. And it prioritizes Starsurge whenever its available. Anyone have and insight as to how this macro would be set up?

    You can occasionally sneak in a /click ActionButtonX at the start of a macro and it will fire up to two abilities on other buttons. If seen it work consistently, though sometimes there is the occasional bug.

    i think its some kind of macro where its /castsequence w.e the hell it is, then starfire or wrath
    and then after that its /cast starsurge
    could be wrong, but im semi certain thats it
    Maybe?

    Having just tested this modified macro as elemental, I would presume that you could substitute Wrath or Starfire for any spammable casted spell or ability.

    Has to be a cast cause insta casts will always be cast first (ie sunfire/moonfire), cause they are first in the macro.

    The macro manamonster posted works well, but you'll also want a stop-casting macro on a separate button for your SS procs.

    the problem with these macros is that if you get a shooting stars proc right after casting a starsurge, it'll continue with a starfire instead of that 2nd starsurge thus you still need to manually cast starsurges. Also when using such macro you cant play with eclipse meter properly, unless you have 2nd wrath macro for it

    Do you mean a stopcasting macro for your Starsurges?

    I haven't watched the video but, is it not likely he's just spamming both? I always mash '5' (ss key) while I'm casting.

    what i mean is that those macros do starfire starsurge starfire starsurge rotation even if you could do starfire starsurge starsurge starsurge, thus you need a seperate starsurge button nevertheless. Sure those macros help abit and you can just use them but using only them isnt the best solution in terms of dps

    So would you advise against a stopcasting macro for starsurge in general? As of now I use 2 buttons ... one with the macro and one with Starsurge (without stopcasting). I cast Starsurge by itself everytime it's up in place of hitting my Starfire/Starsurge macro. I don't use stopcasting on Starsurge ever. What are your thoughts?

    I generally spam SS while my cast is in progress and switch slightly before it ends to spamming the macro. It usually catches a SS proc if it occurs in that split second between stopping my SS spam and starting my Wrath/Starfire spam.

    #showtooltip Starfire
    /castsequence reset=0.5 1,Starfire
    /castsequence reset=0.5 Starsurge

    You can thank me later.

    Basically if you press the macro twice within the reset timer you get a starfire, otherwise it'll try starsurge.

    What is that supposed to do? I tried it out and found no use for it at all. When spamming that macro instead of Starfire, it chaincasted Starfires even when I had a Starsurge proc up.

    I don't see a point to using those macros anyways. At least with higher item levels, you will find often proccing Starsurge just a 0.1 second later than starting a Starfire (also, spellqueueing and stuff) and then you want to cancel the cast to use the Starsurge. I can't remember who calculated it here just recently but I believe it came out to be 0.7 seconds into Starfire cast after which it's no longer beneficial.

    Also for the stopcasting macros, can't you just move to stop the cast as you will always have an instant following it up? It leaves you with less buttons to handle or more dps as you can queue Starsurges when they happen to come off cooldown naturally.

    Don't completely spam it. Press it about 0.5 before end of cast / GCD.

    personally i dont use a stopcasting macro, moving is good enough for me.

    but the point was that with the macro you cast starfire, get a shooting stars proc during the cast. once starfire cast finishes it'll use cast starsurge and if another proc appears during that global it'll cast starfire instead another starsurge.

    Dont know if psums macro fixes it or not, cant test right now

    That macro is pretty handy, thanks psum.

    Im using the castsequence macro now and its working very well for me. There is still the need to have a starsurge button, of course. I simply wanted this so that I could keep spamming the button if I was able to. Its not an end all be all for the moonkin rotation, but Its just a nice little thing that allows me to spam my buttons harder. lol

    Also Lappe posted in my thread. I can die happy now.
