Spell cast hotkey

Postby Protector » Thu Aug 15, 2013 3:29 pm

Hey I've been gone for 10 months, after a lot of help I think I have everything down except for this damn spell cast hotkey. It looked a lot like /cast spell 1 /pause 5 seconds /cast spell 2 or something like this. Does anyone have an updated version of Lvl 100?

Research multibinding. It is better than that sort of macro.

This is not a good idea. For example Summer's Squall has a .5 second delay, faster than pretty much all other Ranger damage spells. So while you are spam pushing your bind keys it won't cycle through all of your spells, instead if will cast the ones on no delay. What I am looking for is a hotkey code that takes into consideration the duration of recast with something similar to /pause 5 seconds (What I remember) which will cast all spells in a loop with out this issue.

That's why you mem it beneath all your other nukes. Multibinding is the best way for any non-boxed ranger to cycle their dps spells. There is no question about it.

So in order from highest delay to shortest?

What I on my Raid spell set:

Forecasted
Focused
Fire RoF
Fire VoA
Ice RoF
Ice VoA
Summer's

If I do not trust the tank, I leave like this. If we are doing valley 2, click off the two fire ones and summers. If I want to maintain steady dps, and not risk agro, but sort of trust the tank, click off the two VoA spells. Doing a kitchen sink burn, not worried about mana, click off the two fire and two ice spells and just go with the two arrow spells and Summers. Would love to believe the fire/ice boom spells were worth using, just can not convince my self anywhere but Valley two.
Agro-magnet, Mana sink
