    Default Question about cast [notactive]

    We use this for instance for:
    cast [notactive] Stalker Phase
    cast [notactive] Guardian Phase

    Anyone have an idea if something could be done like this for the Marksman Synergy Crystal?

    Per say, if the crystal buff isn't active, a macro with empowered in it would bypass Empowered Shot on that round?

    Just a thought.

    Thanks for any insight!

    Only works on aura like abilities(ones that show a ring around them when active). So just anthems, phases, stealth, and Instincts basically for rogues. Just checks if the aura is active or not, does not work on other buffs.

    which is really sad as it could be a quite usefull option. I hope devs will implement further use soon.

    actually works on toggles, the skills that have an icon wich work as switch on/off.

    Works with more than toggles.

    You can macro all of your buffs into it be there 20 or 2.

    no, he said auras - auras are aoe effect zones centered around the caster, like bard's and archon's buffs.

    Are you dense?

    The emphasis is mine, I hope you are able to see the things which I have attempted to emphasize. They are the parts which are in a different font, in red, in large text size, underlined, italicized, and bold.

    Does not.

    Besides the [notactive] macros are only useful to rebuff the toggles(Sorry, I couldnt think of the word and only aura was coming up) if you are only keeping one of each type up...or swapping between two linked ones.

    Interesting, this answered a question I was wanting to post about making a finisher macro for rogue tank finishers. It would be very useful if you could have a finisher like;

    cast [notactive] Rift Guard
    cast [notactive] Guarded Steel
    cast [notactive] False Blade
    cast [notactive] Annihilate

    Unless of course, someone does know a way to macro these....

    If the buff has a time duration (60m, 30s, etc) notactive will not work
