    Default Need help with archon!

    I'm being asked to archon this weekend. Can someone tell me if there is a macro so that I can put all my buffs up at once with 1 key hit several times?

    Also, if someone uses Karuuls Alert....is there a way to set up my screen so that I can tell when an archon buff drops off?

    I'm 51 archon/ 10 lock/ 5 ele if that helps...its was given to me by a guildie, and since we've killed Akylios on our mains, I don't want to change the spec because I trust he is giving me what he thinks is the best archon spec for 1.7


    Thanks!

    You cant macro the auras, they are all instant. You can make a spam macro for the other buffs/attacks -- checkout bluedots for a starting point.

    You sure can setup Karuuls Alert, but you have to setup every single one and drag it where you want it. I switched to Karuuls but haven't spent the half hour it will take to setup all the archon stuff. It's more of a pain to setup but a lot more flexible. For a quick and dirty rebuff timer, checkout nkRebuff.

    I run another spec personally. Your role isn't dps. 11 dom, 4 lock has a lot more utility. Squirrel, silence, cleanse, etc. While silence is only useful on a handful of bosses -- a lot of trash can be basically rendered useless. Plus it helps clump up the trash casters.

    Horsemonkey has a great guide in the mage guide section, you should check that out.

    This is my Karuul Alert set for Archon:
    • Alerts for all of the five-minute buffs, Ashen Defense, Crumbling Resistance, Rockslide, Illuminate, Searing Vitality
    • A Taoist yin/yang is below the Illuminate alert. If you see Yin, Coda of Jeopardy is NOT on the mob. If you see yang, Spotter's Order is NOT on the mob.
    • Large charge alert at the top of the screen indicates you're over 85% charge. Power Drain!
    • To use this set, /karuul and then click the file tab and then "import set." Paste the text below into the window that opens and click the "import" button.

    Default Archon

    http://bluedots.org/content.php?143-...ge-Archon-Guid

    Found this helpful, Karuulalert is also helpfull, as for the auras, you only really need to set up an alert for the first one, because they are all 5 min buffs, so when the alert for the buff you set up begins its 5sec countdown, you know the rest are also ready to fade.

    ĽA Taoist yin/yang is below the Illuminate alert. If you see Yin, Coda of Jeopardy is NOT on the mob. If you see yang, Spotter's Order is NOT on the mob.
    You are adding way too much to your screen for no reason. Just make the alert for Spotter's Order and Coda of Jeopardy stack on top of your alert for Illuminate. That way you will see on your target if Spotter's or CoJ is up. No need for the yin yang coding system - just use the skills themselves and stack the image on top of each other.

    Also, you need to add Wild Growth to that stack - Spotter's, CoJ, Illuminate and WG do NOT stack.

    Better yet, here is a set of debuff tracking for Karuul Alert an old guildmate created. It has every debuff that would be on a raid mob and stacked on top of each other are the debuffs that do the same thing but don't stack (armor, magic resist, physical, etc.). It also includeds a big icon for Mind Decay if you are on Aky
