    In the case of frost crit mages like me, you can use this to chuck a quick buffed, instant cast frostbolt after having setup the target with a frost nova. This can be modified for other similar applications.


    /script CastSpellByName("Arcane Power")
    /script SpellStopCasting()
    /script CastSpellByName("Presence of Mind")
    /script SpellStopCasting()
    /cast Frostbolt(Rank 10)

    I had to insert SpellStopCasting() after each buff because I was getting intermittant problems with the next spell not firing because it "wasn't ready." This works after these kinds of buffs because they are instant cast and do not reset the little cast timer (when the spells darken while a little clockwise hand sweeps on top).

    ooh, I could use that for PoM + Pyroblast

    There used to be a mod out there that allowed you to enter a /wait command, which you could use to wait out the universal cooldown, allowing you to script a sequence of spells. I don't know if Blizz has broken that or not, nor do I remember which mod it was.

    It stops the current cast. Think of it like moving in the middle of casting a greater heal.

    yes, and ouch. i've been hit with frostbolts over 4k due to those damn things. most mages have them both bound to the same key and just hit it then nuke away.
