    Default macros for pyro/archon pvp build?

    I'm trying out the pyro/chon build for pvp. Originally had the pyro/dom and just thought the damage was sub par. I heard good things about this build I'm on my phone so can't link the build but its 51 pyro and 15 arching. I'm just looking for some good macros to efficiently use the skills necessary in pvp thanks a tins guys.

    The only one you need is this:
    #show Flame Bolt
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Flame Bolt
    cast Countdown
    cast Leeching Flames
    cast Fireball
    cast Searing Vitality

    This one helps through:
    #show Consuming Flames
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @self Consuming Flames
    cast Burning Shield

    Enjoy.

    I use the same shield buff as the post above, but my spam marcro is a little different (51pyro/9Lock/6Archon).

    #show Flame Bolt
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Inferno
    cast Flame Bolt
    cast Countdown
    cast Fireball

    Not sure searing vitality will work in the above macro as fireball doesn't have a CD.
    Best bet is to only put 1 non cd ability at in the macro.

    I have been trying out the 51/9/6.Not sure if I like it, the damage is nice but the utility is low.

    But these are the macros I use for that spec:

    #show Consuming Flames
    cast @self Consuming Flames

    I don't like to have both shields in the same macro. I just keep both on my bar, as there is no shortage of hot bar space with this spec.

    #show Flame Bolt
    cast Inferno
    cast Flame Bolt
    cast Countdown
    cast Cinder Burst
    cast Fireball
    cast Searing Vitality

    I only use it when I am on the move, so Cinder Burst will only cast on a proc and if it is on CD then fireball will shoot.

    For my standing still attacks I just hot bar my damage spells individually.

    ^^ This is the start of your problems.
    If you think Pyro/dom is low dmg in PVP you're in trouble. I find it by far the highest dmg spec I run in PVP and regularly get highest KB's. I can't run the build without decent healers though. You're not heavily dependent upon timed abilities either.

    SC/Ele requires long build up, 51 Pyro is OK but to me not a patch on Pyro/Dom if played offensively.

    It's at the bottom so when you are moving you can still spam the macro.

    Pyro/Dom subpar damage? You're doing it wrong. Or basing your dps off of target dummies, which is useless for pyrodom since you cant squirrel dummies.
