    Default Macro Help - Detonate Finisher 4 Sab

    I have multiple macros for various things on my Sab.
    When I add "cast detonate":
    1). It doesn't cast it
    2). the entire macro stops, (even if I spam).

    I tried to "add" this to some macros I have, which made sense in my warped head but does not work.

    cast rapid setup
    cast blast charge
    cast detonate

    Where ever I place "cast detonate", anywhere is the macro, the entire macro stops.

    I have the entire macro if you need to see it, but figured there is something special I need to do for Detonate.

    What am I doing wrong?

    A macro will always use the first ability in the list that is available, and nothing else. The only way that Detonate could be available and not Blast Charge is if you had combo points and enough Energy for Detonate but not Blast Charge, which is a really silly edge case.

    Think of it less as a macro and more as a priority system.

    As a general rule, never put a builder and a finisher in the same macro.

    Technically, this would work if and only if you start with 0 combo points:

    cast rapid setup
    cast detonate
    cast blast charge

    That doesn't mean it'd be advisable, though.

    I agree with you... not advisable.
    I will either:
    1). Take out rapid setup from all macros and do a separate macro for rapid setup + a charge.... I noticed I needed to click it twice. then manually hit Detonate.
    or
    2). Take out rapid setup from all macros and do it manually. It's only 3 clicks, so not a huge time killer.

    #1 seems to be a bit faster and less thinking, lol.
    I have an AoE, Boss, ST spam macro. Will possibly add a rapid setup for each as well.
    Will keep testing.

    I was in the middle of testing, pasring and modifying when the servers went down yet again Wonder if I hit save at any point while messing with the macros, lol.... /sigh

    Thanks again Crithappens!
