    Are you finding that it’s still firing off ok, since the 0,0 aren’t in sequence?

    If so, this could give a lot more tweaking to most macros, related to their order of spells.

    I’ll test when I get home and tell you the numbers.

    I don’t tend to use A Murder of Crows personally. I use Blink Strike, while I admit A Murder of Crows is superior overall, that requires using more than once during a fight. From what I’ve found, unless the macro includes a 2nd Cobra Shot, you will rarely be over 60 focus. I would recommend something like this…

    
    /castsequence reset=target Serpent Sting,null
    /castsequence reset=0.5 0,Explosive Shot
    /castsequence reset=0.5 0,0,0,0,Black Arrow
    /castsequence reset=0.5 0,0,0,0,0,A Murder of Crows
    /castsequence reset=0.5 0,0,0,Kill Shot
    /castsequence reset=0.5 0,0,Glaive toss
    /castsequence reset=5 Arcane Shot,Cobra Shot,Cobra Shot
    /cast [combat] Rapid Fire
    /cast [combat] A Murder of Crows
    /startattack
    

    Personally I use 2 macros, they can easily be combined into a 1 button,, but here they are..

    
    /targetenemy [noharm][dead]
    /castsequence [mod]reset=0.3 0,Multi-Shot
    /castsequence [mod]reset=0.3 Cobra Shot
    /castsequence [nomod]reset=0.3 0,0,0,0,Explosive Shot
    /castsequence [nomod]reset=0.3 0,0,0,Glaive Toss 
    /castsequence [nomod]reset=0.3 0,0,Black Arrow 
    /castsequence [nomod]reset=0.3 0,Explosive Shot 
    /castsequence [nomod]reset=combat Arcane Shot,Cobra Shot,Cobra Shot
    /mtce
    
    
    /targetenemy [noharm][dead]
    /castsequence [mod]reset=0.3 0,Multi-Shot
    /castsequence [mod]reset=0.3 Cobra Shot
    /castsequence [nomod]reset=target Serpent Sting,null
    /use Rapid Fire
    /petassist
    /mtce
    

    /mtce is just Macro Toolkit’s shortcut for clearing the error frame

    Ha, I guess I should have noticed it right off the bat. I was testing your macro, and right away of course I noticed that it doesn’t fire off Explosive Shot as often, so I can see the 60 focus thing wouldn’t be as much of a problem. I know for my toon/playstyle (iLvL 522) it was a significant loss in dps for me. But I had no issue with it hanging up or anything. Like that, I too tend to take macros off here and tweak them to my own playstyle or iLvL at the time. With every class/spec being a lot more gear dependent then ever, and iLvL changes, you kinda have too anyway.

    I assume I’m supposed to spam this, so when I do that, it will quit using Cobra Shot.

    Is this a latency issue? My ping is usually 60-90 depending.

    /castsequence reset=target Serpent Sting,null
    /castsequence reset=0.5 0,Explosive Shot
    /castsequence reset=0.5 0,0,0,0,Black Arrow
    /castsequence reset=0.5 0,0,0,0,0,A Murder of Crows
    /castsequence reset=0.5 0,0,0,Kill Shot
    /castsequence reset=0.5 0,0,Glaive toss
    /castsequence reset=5 Arcane Shot,Cobra Shot
    /cast [combat] Rapid Fire
    /cast [combat] A Murder of Crows
    /startattack

    I tried your Macro, how on earth are you getting 200,000 to 160,000 DPS? Your macro is a massive DPS loss for me. =/

    I honestly think it boils down to play style, I say that because with your macro, I get about 110k. I really find myself taking macros from here and tweaking them for my personal usage. Try changing the reset on mine from 0.3, to say 0.5 or something. See if that smooths it out. Little things can sometimes make a huge impact. Anyway, just an idea, lol.

    I get around 170k at least with my macro(s), if not 200-250. RNG is a cruel mistress.

    P.S. Curious, do you use Dire Beast or TotH? Ongoing argument in my guild, I think Thrill is far superior!!! lol

    P.S.S. – My talents are 3,3,2,3,2,1, I say that because I think in some cases it can have a definite impact on what results you get from a macro too.

    I just gave your macro a try. I feel like it’s casting too much Cobra Shot and I’m always at 90-100 focus the entire fight. I feel like I could be doing more DPS.

    Also, just a question since I have no clue how to make these macros.. Since I don’t use AMoC, what if I put Arcane Shot on this line: /castsequence reset=0.5 0,0,0,0,0,A Murder of Crows to replace AMoC? This way in your macro, Cobra Shot won’t be cast more than Arcane shot.. I’m assuming all the 0s make a skill a priority to cast, no?

    I think you are speaking of the macro from the OP. I don’t have AMoC in my macro, the 2nd cobra shot suggestion was if you ARE using AMoC. It’s a 60 focus ability, so theoretically you’d want your focus >60 so you can use it on CD? If you aren’t using AMoC then it would be a waste I agree.
