As of 9.2.5 reticle spells appear to be impacted by the Self Cast Key if Auto Self Cast is enabled. This is fine. The problem is it’s automatically being applied to macros AND handling the macro logic differently than spells taken from the spellbook.
If you cast a reticle spell macro while holding the Self Cast Key modifier, even if no
[mod:SELFCAST] condition is coded, it automatically tries to cast it at your target’s location.
/cast Door of Shadows
If you self-cast the spellbook version, it automatically tries to cast it at the player’s location.
This behavior is consistent regardless of which modifer the Self Cast Key is set to, so long as there’s no keybind conflict.
This is super janky for those of us who use macros heavily:
a) because we’re used to manually coding our self cast conditions ie
b) because the behavior is different than the spellbook version
c) it introduces functionality not previously available to, or intended for, reticle spells, essentially the ability to cast
[@target]. Think of being able to instantly drop perfect frost traps etc. on your opponents in pvp.
