    Maelstrom Weapon Macro?

    Is there a spammable Maelstrom Weapon macro that will cast only when it is instant? something like:

    /stopcasting
    /cast Lightning Bolt

    Looking for something that will let it fly only when it's instant and have no adverse side effects like resetting GCD or swing timers (not that it's likely but gotta be sure).
    Trust the tale not the teller.

    probably not, but i can 100% guarantee you that the 1st day its available there will be an addon where a HUGE icon pops up in the middle of ur screen for 1 second or 2 to let you know that your next cast is a instant

    I hope there won't be a macro like that ... shouldn't you use Lava Bust to Trigger Elemental Devastation? ;-)

    That macro would work, I'm probably going to put Lava Burst into my already bloated Stormstrike macro.

    #showtooltip Stormstrike
    /startattack
    /use 13
    /use 14
    /use Weather Machine
    /cast Stormstrike <--- See, it's there!
    /stopcasting
    /cast Lava Burst
    /stopcasting


    EDIT: Taking a second look at the macro, if the final /stopcasting isn't included then I would say it would actually cast Lava Burst unless the macro was spammed. Can probably throw Earth Shock in there as well, I haven't tried it.

    Ok now that I understand the talent a bit better I have a new question. Should we stick to a flameshock, earthshock system, to keep lava burst critting? That coupled with elemental devastation would be sexy. ...though 3% melee crit isn't that much so maybe a full out enhancement build could perform better depending on gear.

    Ty for the macro write up

    I'm sure there will be an addon like the necrosis warning telling you it's time to fire, but I'd just like it to happen when it's available... I'm a lazy guy like that.

    actualy its 9% melee crit form 3/3 in elemental devastation, and that is pretty much

    Damn I did write 3. I was looking at the level 1 of the talent when writing, but I did in my head think 9. Just change the number my viewpoint is the same.

    EDIT: scratch that. With "ratings" getting rolled into one that's actually pretty nice. Since my spell crit rating will be as high as my melee rating (or vise versa). Sorry I'm turning into a ruminating hag here trying to think about game mechanics and talents on stuff I haven't seen in action.

    Bottom line, shammies are going to rule again..... till we get nerfed.
