This plugin handles the casting and recasting of spells, whether they're on your spell bar, on items, or even an AA. It also handles memorization and spell lists.


  • Reliably casts spells (auto-recasts on fizzles or gate collapses). Will attempt to immobilize you before casting. Will cast immediately when a spell is available.
  • Intelligently and reliably memorizes spells and allows saving and loading of custom spell sets.
  • Clicks items and activates AAs. Will equip items in bags before clicking, and then return them once clicked.
  • Utilizes MQ2Bandolier to swap in sets of items before casting (ie. Focus items).
  • Auto-pause Stick and/or Advpath if detected and resume when complete.
  • Custom interrupt function, to interrupt spells during casting (includes dismounting).
  • Returns control to the macro immediately after it has started (ie. while the spell is casting), to allow the macro to perform other checks. Eg. while casting a heal spell, you could get the macro to check if the target has already been healed and then interrupt your spell if his HPs are above a certain amount.


Syntax Description
/castdebug [on|off] verbose output text on or off
/casting "<name>" [type] [option]... The /casting command requires only 1 argument, the name of the spell you wish to cast. If the spell is not memmed, it will try and mem it in gem5 by default. If the spell has more than one word, make sure to surround it with quotes.
  • Note: Although the [type] is optional, it's always recommended to specify if you're casting a spell (specify the gem or number), clicking an item (specify "item" or the slot name/slot number) or activating an AA (specify "alt"), since there are AAs which have the same name as spells and spells and items can have the same IDs.
/interrupt This will interrupt the current spell/item/AA that's casting.
/memorize <name> [gem] Take spell names or IDs, and can use gem# or just the numbers themselves. The gem# or number can also be appended to the end of the name. e.g.
/memorize "Minor Shielding" 1

The plugin will attempt to immobilize you before memorizing the spell(s).

/ssd <"name"> (spell set delete) This will delete a spell set from the ini file.
/ssl (spell set list) This will list all spell sets that have been saved.
/ssm <"name"> (spell set memorize) This will memorize a previously saved spell set.
/sss <"name"> [gem(s)] (spell set save) This saves your currently memorized spells into a set you name. By default, all gems (123456789ABC) will be saved. You can also specify the gems you wish to save, e.g.
/sss powerlevel 1238

Using other commands from MQ2Cast you can then load these spell sets.


The configuration file is in the server_character.ini file, and holds spells sets for memorization.

Example for a spellset called "gandalfDPS"

gandalfDPS 12=26|1 200|2
  • "gandalfDPS" is the spell set name,
  • "12=" refers to spell gems 1 and 2
  • "26|1" is spellID 26, spell gem 1

These are easier to configure via commands than direct editing of the .ini

  • ${Cast.Ready}

Returns TRUE if ready to cast a spell, item or AA

  • ${Cast.Ready[M]}

Return TRUE if ready to memorize a spell. ${Cast.Ready[#]} Return TRUE if gem # is ready to cast. ${Cast.Ready[<name or ID>]}

Return TRUE if spell, item, gem, ID, AA, etc is ready to cast. As spells and items can have the same IDs and spells and AAs can have the same names, it's a good idea to specify the type of cast to take place (ie. gem#/item/alt). See examples on DataType:Cast
Taken Return TRUE if last spell cast didn't take hold on target.
int Timing Returns the estimated number of miliseconds remaining until the spell finished casting.
spell Effect Returns the name of the spell being cast, or a NULL string if not casting.
Stored Returns the last spell that was cast, or NULL if no spell has been cast.
string Result Returns a string containing the result of the /casting command. It can be one of the following:
Result Description
CAST_ABORTED Casting Aborted (/interrupt)
CAST_CANCELLED Casting was aborted

    • A: advpath pause
    • F: stick pause
    • S: immobilize in progress
