Hey guys. My issue is that my water elemental refuses to attack any target. I can use the pet-nova, which is great but i really don't see a reason for it not to attack. I can press attack, aggressive and such but it still doesn't do anything. Just stands there beeing one of those bullied water elementals.
Have any of you mages experienced anything like this?
My Water Elemental does everything but attack. It happened on the same day I tried out three different unit frames, but even with all add on's disabled I get the same result. I put in a ticket which took about 1.5 days for a GM to respond to, and he indicated that this is a known issue. Although I do not see any reference to it on any blizz forum. As a result I'm going fire for the first time since SSC.
Yep, mine too..it's been driving me INSANE, especially when in BG's. I don't even use Macros; I want him aggressive during BG's. He just sits there and watches me die. Trying to manage him and fight is cumbersome. I can get the occasional one-shot of a frost bolt like a previous poster, but that's about it. It sucks, plain and simple. I hate my pet. I hate him. I want to see him evaporate painfully.
It does not look like he is about to start casting waterbolt. The button acts like it is auto attacking, as in it sort of highlights itself. I can even hear the sound the from his first attempt to cast. If I click waterbolt he will attack, but only once.
i came out in the arena the other day to find all of my buttons greyed out, no ccs on the elemental and i wasnt mounted. it was just following me around while i got pummeled due to the lack of an important freeze
You shouldn't macro it because every time you tell your pet to /petattack, it's "attack" is to cast Water Bolt, which has a cast time. If you keep hitting it like most people do with buttons, it will just keep retrying to cast Water Bolt every time you press it.
