    Flame Shock + Unleash Elements macro help

    So I found this macro
    /castsequence reset=combat/target/12 Flame Shock, Earth Shock
    And thought that I would use it for Flame Shock + Unleash Elements instead so I made it look like this
    /castsequence reset=combat/target/26 Flame Shock, Unleash Elements
    Now too the problem, after I have cast my Unleash Elements it resets back on showing my Flame Shock wich I don't want ofc.
    So anyone that could help me with this, I would be greatful.

    First, depending on which spec you play (as you didn't specified which one) Unleash will be right before a Flame shock to empower it as enhancement, but Ele requires you to cast it after a flameshock to empower your LvB. So I supposed you play Ele. The macro itself isn't too useful for ele (imo) only because the community is actually debating if it's worth a GCD or not, which will most likely be a "situational" cast when we're moving (out of Spiritwalker's Grace). I'm trying to figure out a way fix your problem, but if i'm understanding correctly you want to cast FS only once then only have Unleash Weapon, since your FS DoT will be refreshing ? If so I would recommend trying :

    /castsequence reset=combat/target/26 Flame Shock, Unleash Elements, Unleash Elements

    And adding lots of unleash elements, but that'd be completely useless. Tbh this macro wouldn't have too much utility since you're casting FS not so often... Any suggestion would be appreciated tho !

    I actually made an account just so I could post a topic on this I play Enhance and it'd be really nice to have Unleash Elements bound to my Shock button. I actually use that exact same castsequence macro for Flame Shock and Earth Shock above and it works like a charm. However, I've been tinkering with adding in Unleash Elements to the mix, and every time I do it breaks the macro. I'll keep tinkering and see what I can find. Otherwise, help!

    In theory, you would add to :

    /castsequence reset=combat/target/16 Flame Shock, Earth Shock, Earth Shock

    Unleash Elements + the CD of this spell

    /castsequence reset=combat/target/16+15(UE CD if I'm right) Unleash Elements,Flame Shock, Earth Shock, Earth Shock

    I'm not a macro specialist but I think it should be working .. might be wrong (I make errors, I'm human )

    I assumed he was Enhancement, because the theorycrafting I've seen from Beta suggested that Unleash Weapon was a DPS loss for Elemental, period. The damage from it, and from the boost to LvB, is less than an LB, with everything considered.

    I'm trying to locate some firmer data or possibly break down and do some mathing myself on it, and then I'll be updating the official FAQ.

    This doesn't mean the spell is useless for Ele; it's still good when running if you don't have a shock that needs to be fired and you don't want to/can't use Spiritwalker's Grace. It's just not the kind of thing you'd ever usually macro.

    What Endus said is right, UE is a dps loss for Elemental, it's so much situationnal that you should just stick it somewhere far from your usual keybinds :P


    Edit: Also note on my Enh comment, since UE benifits more the FS, you would most likely use FS after 1 ES since the CD on UE is 15 sec
