Well, I've gotten my mage to a high enough level to start doing a good amount of instances and raids soon. I am looking for some advice on some mage mods. At the moment I'm only using one mage specific mod, one of the radial mods. Tbh, i'm getting tired of radial mods. Any suggestions for mods that deal with portals, spells, food and water and gems, anything to clear up the clutter?
It doesn't, Tablet's not set up for secure frames.
As much as I looooved Cryolysis, I, too, got a little tired of it. You can use Geist (on WoWInterface.com) as a hidden set of buttons that will open anywhere on your screen, or use Bartender or another mod that will hide bars until mouseover. AutoBar does conjure food, etc. now, too. I suggest getting AutoBar if you don't use it already, since it will allow you to use your conjured items (along with other consumables) directly from the bar, without taking up room on your action bars. As for creating gems and portals, I use macros:
This conjures my highest gem on left click, next highest on right click, and next highest after that on middle click (replace with whichever spells you do have).
#showtooltip Conjure Mana Emerald
/cast [button:1] Conjure Mana Emerald
/cast [button:2] Conjure Mana Ruby
/cast [button:3] Conjure Mana Citrine
This macro opens a portal on left click and teleports on right click (took the idea from right-click self-cast)
This macro will set your poly target as your focus and will resheep your focus even if you have another mob targetted. I used /castrandom so that it could randomly pick between sheep or pig. If you just have sheep so far, then just do /cast and take out Polymorph: Pig
To get the sayings that Cryolysis would spit out, I use GemSay off of Curse. To mount up, you can set up AutoBar to hold your mount (and hearthstone). I use Chronometer, too, to track my spells. I've completely replaced Cryolysis and I don't have the sphere taking up room in my UI. :)
Awesome, thanks for the input guys(gals). Gonna start making macros now. Oh, and I got Autobar all set up for my portals and food and drink stuff. Any suggestions on a good dispenser mod? Or is there a macro I can create to auto trade food and water upon opening trade or something?
