    Default Pet macro not working?

    suppressmacrofailures
    petcast Ball Lightning
    petcast Lightning Bolt

    used to work fine but now if i spam it.......it just gets interrupted. I have to wait for the 2s cast to hit the macro again else it will interrupt itself.

    any ideas?

    Try adding in the following:

    petpassive
    wait 2 (or however long your pet's longest ability cast is, rounded up)
    petcast Ball Lightning
    petcast Lightning Bolt
    petdefensive

    Trying to get the Necro mage pet to cast at the right times I experimented with pet abilities quite a bit. This should mean your pet finishes doing whatever it's doing then is not attacking so is free to cast the off CD ability. It drops a bit of DPS from if you were manually hitting the buttons of course, since you can't wait for fractions of a second, but it at least helps prevent interrupts (I'm fairly sure it should anyway) since this macro will still be active, preventing you overwriting it if you spam the button.

    Just put petattack at the end of your macro when using the air elemental. Don't try to macro in the individual abilities as it overwrites the cast.

    Hmm. Not really sure what to tell you. I just put petattack at the end of whatever macro I'm using and my pet switches to my target and starts attacking. I just leave him on passive/follow and he seems to work pretty well.

    Is there anyway to get reset a pet or have it reset by a GM? I went and checked all other pets(Necro pets) + Greater Earth elemental, Greater Water Elemental, and Lesser Air elemental and all of them are working fine when i use the attack key or type /petattack

    it is only the Greater Air Elemental that just does not do ANYTHING. It shows like its been agro'd and its trying to cast something but it just stays stuck in that not going beyond that or using any abilities. if i manually push the ability it works fine.
