    Enha macro

    Hey

    I'm not very good at making macros, and i don't know if this is even possible. However i would like to ask if it was possible to make this macro:

    cast magma totem
    cast fire nova
    if magma totem is down cast magma totem
    if magma totem is up cast fire nova

    would it be possible to make macro that checks if magma totem is up?

    I'm at work and I can't remember the CDs, so you'll have to develop this a bit further. But maybe this will help you:

    /castsequence reset=shift/combat/30 magma totem, fire nova, fire nova

    It does a sequence, which resets if you press shift when you click it, leave combat or don't press the button for 30 seconds (set this number to the CD of magma totem).
    The sequence does magma totem and then fire nova twice before resetting. (If you can do 3 nova's before the totem goes away add another ", fire nova".) This will work as long as you always use fire nova when it is off CD.

    (if my syntax is wrong can someone please correct me).

    No, it will only be reset/interrupted if you do one of the 3 reset conditions that are specified on the macro: press shift and click it; leave combat; don't press it for 30 seconds.

    The best solution would be to use a modifier, otherwise you're stuck with a castsequence that will make it difficult if you need to redrop your Magma totem.

    (You can use control, alt, or shift and it will redrop Magma Totem)

    #showtooltip
    /cast [mod]Magma Totem;Fire Nova

    The mod key method is likely the best way to do it.

    the castsequence works as it should, though there is a problem with the casting of magmatotem some times, but most of the time it drops it as attendet. it works very nice, since i didn't want to use the [mod].

    If you choose to use the castsequence, lower the reset number from 30 to 11 and it should fix the problem of not dropping Magma when it's supposed to.

    okay, i already set it to 12 since that's the cooldown of magma totem, will try to reduce it to 11

    I think you might be best just getting the addon ShockandAwe.
