Oh those crazy mages...

Post by Heartwood » Wed Jun 11, 2008 3:36 pm

I saw this crazy thread over at the official forums.
One of our mages had his blink button next to his arcane intellect button

And while buffing before maiden, bwrewro Your behavior will not be tolerated

Maiden rampage followed

Buttons where moved to more sensible locations

He may live it down, eventually.

Damn! You caught me :shock:
Please someone, give me the knowledge to only Blink when I should.

I wonder how many mages have their teleport spells right next to their portals.

If I were building a mage, I'd set up macros for portal/teleport to save space. Example (forgive me if I have the spell names wrong):

Code: Select all

#showtooltip
/cast [mod:shift] Portal: Stormwind; Teleport: Stormwind
As a variant, you could have it reverse the effect while in a party or raid (so the default action while solo is teleport and you hold Shift to portal, while the default action in a party/raid is to portal and you hold Shift to teleport):

Code: Select all

#showtooltip
/cast [party,nomod][raid,nomod][noparty,noraid,mod:shift] Portal: Stormwind; Teleport: Stormwind
Either that or use an addon like AutoBar which groups similar spells together and gets them off your action bars entirely.

i personally use spellcraft to manage my teleports and portals. its a little button that you can put anywhere, and you click and a column for teleports and next to it a column for the portals. its pimpin imo, and you can still be a nub and click teleport instead of portal, but thats what hearth stones are for right?

spellcraft also rebuys reagents (teleport, portal and arcane dust) as well as has other great mage functions, like those wispers you get when you get on my sheep, you bastards!
