    Default Error with Eldritch Armor buff Macro

    If I create a macro to engage eldritch armor as such

    cast [notactive] Eldritch Armor

    The macro ignores the notactive part of the line. Macros handle the other mage armors I tested appropriately. For example

    cast [notactive] Storm Armor

    works as it should.

    Also, Eldritch Armor is not NGCD as other armor buffs.

    The [notactive] modifier only works with toggled buffs - things like living energy. So you can't have automatically reapplying buffs whenever you get purged or they run out.

    Eldritch armor is not oGCD, and storm armor is. The reason it probably works with the storm armor is that it continuously keeps storm armor on CD (it has 5s, shared with tempest armor IIRC) and therefore carries out the other cast commands below it in your macro.

    You can get away with it with storm armor, but I wouldn't recommend it because of the mana drain and the fact you can't switch to tempest armor if your spec has it as storm armor will always be on CD.

    You are exactly right, Storm Armor also ignores the [notactive] modifier. Too bad we can't use that modifier to re-apply buffs, would be a nice change though.
