[Feedback] Spell from Hotkey should not count as Last Spell!

    It's pretty much the same thing as Target Self counting as Last Target.

    Currently when I cast mini heal from CTRL+B, I press my Last Spell macro hotkey and it casts... mini heal!

    It should be like this: I click on a spell icon in my screen (Poison Field). I cast a mini heal from hotkey and then I use my last spell macro hotkey -> casts poison field. In short: using the Last Spell macro should always trigger the spell which you've casted last via clicking a spell icon.

    Sorry, I don't agree with that all, Last spell should be whatever was last cast, regardless of how it was cast.

    The "last spell" in Legacy client is the last one manually selected from an icon, rather than the last one invoked by a macro/key. Seems to me if you have a spell macro'd you don't really need a last spell macro to hit it again, unless you're doing something different with targeting.

    I guess it boils down to personal preference, in which case I find a choice is always best. Perhaps "last spell (clicked)" and "last spell (any)"?

    100% in agreement. This is how the classic (2d) client works and what I think the developers should do in SA if they are serious about trying to get 2d users to make the switch. There are a number of spells that I don't want to set up a hotkey for because I don't use them that often and I already have 75+ hot keys assigned. When I need to use those spells, it isn't unusual to need to use them more than once in that situation, but interspersed with casting other spells that are on a hotkey. Knowing that odd spell that has no hotkey is temporarily assigned to "Last Spell" has always been very handy.

    The same logic should apply to the "Last Skill" action...use last skill used from an icon, not a hotkey.
