A quick note about your Magma Totem/Fire Nova /castsequence macro. The castsequence reset timer doesn't work the way I think you think it does... >.< If you have the reset timer at 21 seconds, it will reset 21 seconds after you last hit the button, not 21 seconds after you first hit it.Also, I'm pretty sure your FS/ES macro must be FS/ES/ES, because a /castsequence macro also resets when you get to the end of the sequence; i.e. your Magma/Nova macro would cast Magma Totem, then cast Fire Nova, then start over at Magma Totem again.Not trying to troll, I just really like my macros. =P

Ya. I tried it and it failed.think the shock also wastes 1 earth shock for me but I wasnt able to study it long since I'm in a raid.

Would you mind posting a fix to the macro? I like the idea of this macro, and would like to see yours. :)

Maybe something like this:/castsequence reset=combat/shift Magma Totem, Fire Nova, Fire Nova, Fire NovaChange the number of fire novas to whatever you can squeeze in. And if the magma totem disappears, use shift to start over.

My old macro for Magma/Nova was just a simple one.#showtooltip/cast [mod:alt] Magma Totem; Fire NovaI don't play my shaman often, so I never tried coming up with a better solution until now. Unfortunately, (either because of the limitations of macros or my lack of sheer brilliance, not sure which ;D) the solution I came up was not very elegant... It only works AUTOMATICALLY if you are the only shaman in the raid (or at least the only one dropping Magma Totem). Also, if you are targeting a friendly target it will clear your target and try to attack the nearest enemy. But, lets face it, how often will an enhance shaman target a friendly target? Especially while spamming Fire Nova... =P Anyways here it is:#showtooltip Fire Nova/cleartarget [help]/tar Magma Totem/cast [exists,help,nomod:alt] Fire Nova; Magma Totem/targetlasttarget [help]/startattackBasically it drops Magma if it isn't down already, hits Fire Nova if it is. If you're holding Alt, it will just do Magma. Also, if there is another Shaman in the party/raid dropping Magma Totem, holding Alt will still drop Magma and hitting the macro normally will still use Fire Nova if Magma is down. It just won't choose for you, which a macro isn't supposed to do anyways...

Just thought of something while re-reading my last comment. (Sure glad there's an edit button!!! Oh, wait...)It should be:#showtooltip [mod:alt] Magma Totem; Fire NovaThe reason I don't just use the standard #showtooltip is because of the complicated targeting that has to go on to check if your Magma Totem is out. If it was the normal #showtooltip, it would just show the Magma Totem tooltip, which isn't very helpful since Fire Nova is the one with the cooldown. =P And I just thought the [mod:alt] Magma Totem made it a bit more complete.
