I just noticed that this thread does not have the correct solution posted yet.

The following encounters use a special form of possessbar:
  • Blackwing Descent, Nefarian encounter
  • Feast Fest
  • Heart of Fear, Un'Sok encounter

By default those spells for a possessed player will be displayed in the MainMenuActionBar.

But...sometimes Blizzard thinks it's funnier to plump you in a Vehicle without telling anyone. Not even the own API. Thus neither [overridebar] nor [vehicleui] wil fire. (Which is a bug imo).

The solution is to use a third condition checking for possessbar state while in a vehicle.

Lua Code:
  1. [possessbar,@vehicle,exists]
