Macro casts spells for wrong spec

So I’ve been using GSE on my BM Hunter for a few weeks now and I didn’t have this problem until recently. I’ve been using this particular macro for most of these weeks, and it only just started doing this: after I’ve been playing for a while, I never know when, all of a sudden the macro will start rapidly cycling through everything. I noticed that it is trying to cast abilities for Marksmanship spec like Wing Clip, Steady Shot, etc., in addition to BM spells. The thing is, I don’t play Marksmanship. This macro never did that before. When I checked the settings and I first go to the second tab, it shows a bunch of Marksmanship abilities combined with BM. If I click to tab 1 and then back to tab 2, it doesn’t show those anymore, but the macro continues to glitch out. I can’t figure out why it is changing itself.

What it shows the first time you click tab 2:

Sometimes it only has Wing Clip, sometimes it has a bunch of other Marksmanship spells.

Short Answer: its saving the base spell for your abilities which under the covers are MM abilities. When you change to BM WoW changes these base spells to the BM versions.

Ok, that sheds some light on it, but I’m still confused. I load into WoW as BM and it works fine for hours at a time, and then randomly starts acting up with MM spells. This problem has only been happening for about a week from new macros that I’ve gotten here. I removed and added one or two things, so maybe I put something in or removed something that’s causing it. How can I fix it? Thanks for taking the time to help

ITs not something that you need to fix - You /cast Steady Shot and WoW will automatically cast Cobra Shot as your BM. If you check your logs its using the right things.


Hmm…is there a reason it started happening just last week and that only certain macros do it while others are fine?

It will be tied to when you hit the save button.


Ok, I think I’ve got it now. Thanks for your help!
