I am new to the forum here, and I have been reading through a few of the posts about the Macrotoolkit. I am very interested in this addon, but I have a few concerns/questions. Currently I do use some simple macros ie: /target, /cast and /use. I’ve had some folks in the game (WoW) suggest /cast sequence macros, which I have tried a few and some impressed me and others were not that great. What I’ve found to be problematic with most sequence macros is the inability to cast Proc spells within a timely manner. I did find a nice macro for my shaman on these forums that looked promising.
/targetenemy [noharm][dead] /castsequence Lightning Bolt /castsequence Lava Burst! /castsequence reset=9 Flame Shock,Unleash Elements,Lava Burst,Earth Shock,Lava Burst

The problem i have with a macro like this is:
- It does not cast “Lava Burst” on proc (it waits til it’s normal cast location in the macro)
- It will cast “Earth Shock” before the 7th stack on Lightning Shield (ex: sometimes it casts with 3 stacks and some times with 6)
- The macro does not include “Elemental Blast” ( I know this is trivial just making a note of it)
Thank you Martin for your macro post and I mean no disrespect by picking on your macro. I’m merely using it as an example.
So, I guess my main question is…
If i download this addon, will the ability to have more character spacing actually give the ability to create macros that will react to all spell procs (in a timely manner) and also be able to have an extended sequence to truely get a large rotation into one button spam?
I would hate to go through the work to save all my current macros, download the addon, re-enter all my old macros and make new macros just to find out this will not work as I am understanding it.
Thank you in advance to anyone that replys.
