Ok So this was taken from the EJ Forums.





In 2.3, with the introduction of the lag-free casting (queued casting), this opens the option of macroing your spells/heals with certain Librams for each individual heal. Before in 2.2 and below, swapping librams while casting caused noticable lag time and even temporary frame loss if spammed. with the "queued casting" as they call it, your spells are now queued after clicking at a certain point in the cast time, in which before casts did not queue, but only seemed liked they queued if using a stopcasting macro. What this means is that very minute operations (switching librams) can take place during the split second that the queue is up for your heal/spell cast with zero lag time.

What this means for Paladins is that we can carry around several different librams at once, each with different effects for a certain kind of heals (Libram of Absolute Truth for Holy Light only, Libram of Light for Flash of Light only), and macro them to be equipped upon the click of that spell, and continue to be swapped in with no lag time, successfully proccing that Libram effect. Here's some examples:

/equip Libram of Mending
/cast Holy Light(Rank 11)
with,
/equip Libram of Light (Souls Redeemed if the raid has BoL)
/cast Flash of Light(Rank 7)

or even this....

/equip Libram of Absolute Truth
/cast Holy Light(Rank 11)
with,
/equip Libram of Light (Souls Redeemed if the raid has BoL)
/cast Flash of Light(Rank 7)

or for those of you who picked up Libram of Grace from Fankriss in AQ40...

/equip Libram of Grace
/cast Cleanse

These macros can effectively be used for any spec of Paladin, Holy, Protection, or Retribution, you just have to know which Libram works with which spells of course.

Druids and Shamans can do this too with their relics, potentionally creating a new use for Relics that might have been inferior to another.

There Is some Debate about it Triggering the GCD WHILE In Combat... Its tricky but can be done. OR it can be done incorrectly and REally screw up your healing. Toy with at your own Risk!
