Holy Word: Chastise

Remember how I got the holy word: chastise macro to work in all its various incarnations depending on my chakra state?

Not anymore.

Nope, now when I’m in a chakra state and hit my macro, big red letters on my screen gleefully inform me that I don’t in fact know that spell.

Wait, what?

In fact, when I’m in POH-Chakra and I hit the Holy Word Macro, I get a targeting circle, so it obviously knows what I’m trying to do. I’m obviously trying to place my floor-of-healing-goodness (that’s the technical term). But when I click my mouse to actually place the circle, “Spell not learned”. The hell it’s not!

Skinning

My skinning is 450. Apparently, I now need 470 to skin the beasts in TOC-10. Really.

Everything is Tiny

I mean wtf, I set up all my addons to make my UI the scale I want it, only to have everything shrink. Epic. Fail. (As I stayed up way too late twiddling around with my UI.)

"How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read... if they can't even fit inside the building?"

30 sec Chakra Cooldown is Hawt

On the plus side, right now the only plus side, the 30-second Chakra cooldown makes switching states a breeze, and I’m always in a chakra state if I want to be. I also don’t have to worry about hitting the spell that extends the state because, whatever, I can just re-cast it right when it expires. I can’t wait until they combine the POH and Renew chakras which will make my life MUCH easier.

  1. A friend of mine tried to engineer Flame Leviathan and ran into the same problem – he apparently needs 470 Engineering.

  2. There are work arounds for Holy Word: Chastise here:
    http://plusheal.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7379&start=20
    and they work.
    I used
    Set your mouse over the button and type/run local f = GetMouseFocus(); if f then DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(f:GetName()) end
    to find out the button name
    then I have a macro like

    #showtooltip Holy Word: Chastise
    /target mouseover
    /click BT4Button16
    /targetlasttarget

    I had a few hours of panic though once I realised it wasn’t working and everything I tried didn’t seem to want to work either.

    • Hah I got this comment as I was writing the article on the macro I had found and tested tonight. It’s basically the same as yours (more or less). Hopefully people will be able to find a version that works for them.

  3. I tried to skin lowly Cyanigosa at the end of Violet Hold and found that I needed 470 skinning as well.  Weird that there were no comments that I’d seen from blizzard about changing these requirements.
