"We can MD multiple times per pull! In between every shot, if we want!"I can't seem to do this. I have to wait the 4 seconds after MD is finished before I can cast it again. Anyone else experiencing this?

It is, of course, a minor point - there really is no need the re-cast MD before the previous one is finished - but it's something I noticed right away in the article as something I couldn't do in the game.

Do you have the glyph of misdirection? That refreshes your MD whenever you cast it on your pet.

There's probably an unstated internal CD on the glyph.It's like the Glyph of Shadow Word: Death, which refreshes the CD of your SW:D if it doesn't kill your target. There's a 6 sec internal CD on the glyph, so even though you can press SW:D twice in a row, you can't spam it.

Obviously I have the Glyph of Misdirection, otherwise I'd be waiting for the normal misdirection cooldown and not 4 seconds.

At lvl 80, my hunter with the purchased Artisian flying skill and the 2 talent points in speed gets 451% flying speed according to Titan Speed (tried a macro and got the same). That is zippy! Only my lvl 80 Paly does better (with crusader on 492%), and my DK (410%) does worse.. PS buy Artisian skill at Valliance Keep for 4,250 Gold (revered)

#showtooltip/focus [help]/stopmacro [help]/cast [@focus,exists] Misdirection;[@pet,exists] MisdirectionThis macro or this one only for pet:#showtooltip/cast [@pet,exists] MisdirectionI have the Misdirect glyph. I noticed that the MD would indeed reset but ONLY when my pet is attacking something. Otherwise, it just times down.So I TAB (nearest enemy) tilde `(pet attack), and use the MD macro, then Chimera, arcane combo. (sorry for the repeat posts- this site takes forever for me to load comment)

While the glyph removes the CD on misdirect, since the skill's duration is 4 seconds, I'm willing to bet that there's an internal CD effect that won't let you re-cast misdirect while the first one is still active. You shouldn't need to cast 2 misdirects within 4 seconds of each other, because during those 4 seconds all your threat is getting misdirected anyway.
