Subject: [BUG] Coldsnap messes up cast sequence macros
Basically if i put Coldsnap in a macro it messes up everything. Here's the macro i use. Ya i know it isn't a true cast sequence macro. But it should still work.

/cast Cold Snap
/use Xi'ri's Gift
/cast Icy Veins
/cast Frostbolt(Rank 13)

If i hit that macro nothing except cold snap will work. It won't even use the trinket.

For comparison this macro works fine without coldsnap.

/use Icon of the Silver Crescent
/cast Icy Veins
/cast Frostbolt(Rank 13)

If i hit coldsnap manually i can then use either 2nd macro or the 1st macro if i removed coldsnap. But this defeats the purpose of the 1st macro. Basically i'm just trying to maximize my dps. I want to use the 2nd macro then follow it with the 1st macro. But cold snap is not not allowing me to do that. Cold snap i don't think should be breaking that macro as it doesn't cause a global cooldown. Yet in a macro it does seem to cause a hidden one and breaks the macro.

If i'm wrong please point this out. Alternatively if the macro isn't correct point that out as well.

I got way too many toons

This has nothing to do with the Global Cooldown. This is caused by client-server latency, and can easily be replicated without a macro by manually activating Cold-Snap and Icy Veins (or any other frost ability) in rapid succession.

This macro will need to be activated multiple times (spammed) to get the effect that you desire, this is a limitation of the game and one that will not be changing.
