    Arcane Blast and Invokers Ward Macro

    Is there such a Thing? I have tried several ways and MY Macro Noobness is showing, any ideas?


    Thanks a bunch

    If you are trying to get your AB to cast IW on CD you can't, IW is on the GCD and the macro will just cast it over and over

    This wouldn't be a good idea even if it were possible, you need to time IW carefully for proper use not just blow it on cooldown

    Do you mean Incanter's Ward? You're mixing the spell name (Incanter's WARD) and the buff you get when it breaks (INVOKER'S Energy).

    If you do, that would be one of the silliest macros ever, nor can you even put TWO GCD abilities in one macro.

    Code:
    #showtooltip Arcane Blast
    /castsequence reset=25 Incanter's Ward, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast
    Try that ^.


    For maximum effect, after you create that macro, bind it to all the keys on your keyboard. Next, place your left cheek on the left side of your keyboard and gently roll in a clockwise direction. Then repeat, but in the other direction.

    Alternatively (for the more 'ADHD/Ritalin addict' experience), you can start by placing your face approximately 9-14 inches from the keyboard, and then proceed to rhythmically slam your face into your keyboard at oscillatory intervals of 2 seconds (plus haste).

    Though I would assume after your 5th or 6th raid with this behavior, the pain might get you to second think just macroing in IW into your ABs and spamming away, but hey, I am no one to judge. *shrugs*

    #showicon
    #showtooltip
    /cast [modifier:shift] Arcane Blast; Incanter's Ward

    Then you can see if IW is off cooldown when shift is not being held, otherwise, hold shift and AB.

    Since the IW nerf down to 15%, it's useless. DPSwise, you're better off using it as passive, never activating the shield.

    This is what I do, as I suck at RoP placement.
