    To the beta SP players: macro question

    Hi all,

    can you macro a procced MB together with a chanelled MF, and same question for Searing Nightmare and Mind Sear, like e.g.

    /cast searing nightmare
    /cast [nonchannel] mind sear

    Just off the top of my head, this might work.

    /cast [channeling:Mind Flay] Mind Blast; Mind Flay

    Since the execution order is sequential, it'll check to see if you're channeling Mind Flay, then attempt to cast Mind Blast if you are. Otherwise, it'll cast Mind Flay. However, it might actually interrupt your Mind Flay if you don't have an instant cast. I've never used the channeling conditional, assuming it's still in the game. May be channeled instead of channeling, would have to mess with it.

    This setup would likely work for Mind Sear, as well, just replace the appropriate spells in the macro.

    “It's not an endlessly expanding list of rights — the 'right' to education, the 'right' to health care, the 'right' to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery — hay and a barn for human cattle.”

    Yep, this macro is just going to work as if you're clicking your normal Mind Blast binding. It'll cast Mind Blast if it's off CD, no matter if it interrupts Mind Flay or not.

    I don't think it's actually possible to create a macro that only casts Mind Blast during Mind Flay IF it's procced, as I'm pretty sure you can't make macros behave based on buff effects.

    Searing Nightmare should be easy though, since it's only castable during Mind Sear:

    /use [channeling:Mind Sear] Searing Nightmare
    /use [nochanneling:Mind Sear] Mind Sear

    Possible that the macro can be simplified, but that should do what you want.

    Note that any kind of [channeling] macro is only going to recast the spell AFTER it's finished, meaning you're losing DPS time equal to whatever time it takes for your client to deliver the message to the server. In other words, such a macro is just gonna cost you DPS for what little convenience it offers.
