    Default Macros and spells off the GCD

    Can we get the cast lock out changed for spells off the GCD?

    ex:
    #show Plague Bringer
    cast Plague Bringer
    cast Soul Sickness

    I have to spam the 2x to get it to work, basically making it a GCD.

    I'm not trying to be smart here but, are you implying it takes you 1.5 seconds to hit a button twice?

    You are correct. He is complaining he can't remember to push the button twice.

    Personally, I want Trion to bring me coffee and doughnuts while I play. Priorities I guess...

    Maybe he has abilities to fire on release and is forgetting to lift his finger......

    No it's not the full length of a GCD, but it defeats the purpose of a macro as it mush register, log an error and then press the button again.

    Bottom line: the macro returns an error.
    Intended or not an error means it's not meant to work that way...
    So if you want to argue that I cannot remember to push the button 2x, then I can in turn argue you're exploiting a macro.

    Since this (and other spells) is an instant and off the GCD spell I'm asking for the restriction not apply.

    It works fine as is, but he does have a point.

    However any game I've seen that limits macros to 1 ability per press has this kind of issue. It's apparently either prohibitively difficult to make the system recognize the differences in the abilities or it's the kind of thing that is really low on their To Do List (which is probably about 7000000 items long).
