I got tlc yesterday, so i can't use itemrack anymore because it switches to my spirit gear every time i get a crit (icon is the same as when evocation is activated).. what addon/makro do you use to switch to spirit gear @evocation?
I found that while this works great OOC, in-combat you must press the macro repeatedly to equip weapons. So two right clicks, to get your normal gear back. At least this was the case pre 2.1.
Nope, one click does it. The only thing you have to consider in combat is that re-equiping your normal gear will cause a GCD. The way I avoid it normally is starting to cast a fireball just after evocation has run out and then swapping weapons mid-cast. That way im not affected by the GCD and since +dmg bonuses are calculated on cast completion, it's win-win.
Ah, hadn't tried changing gear during casts. Well, Autospirit works well enough, and whats better, it works regardless of your gear choices, where as a macro needs to be updated. I'm changing specs a good deal lately (Arcane and Fire) so that's nice too, and I'm a forgetful sort, so the ... "do it for me" is nice
I actually saw this recently on another forum. Someone posted a change to ItemRack that lets it distinguish between Evocation and TLC. The only catch is you have to mod it yourself
In the ItemRack folder, open localization.lua and replace line 283 with this:
["script"] = "local evoc=arg1[\"Interface\\\\Icons\\\\Spell_Nature_Purge\"]\nlocal evocSpell = GetPlayerBuffName(\"Evocation\")\nif evocSpell and evoc and not IR_EVOC then\n EquipSet() IR_EVOC=1\nelseif not evocSpell and IR_EVOC then\n LoadSet() IR_EVOC=nil\nend\n--[[Equips a set to wear while channeling Evocation.]]"
Basically it checks whether you really have the evocation buff, and not just a spell with the same icon.
Disclaimer: I don't have a lightning capacitor (my Karazhan raid is drowning in melee drops), but others have reported that this change does work.
