DK Macro Help

Hi - I have stumbled upon some macro's on the web that are as such:

Code:
#showtooltip Icy Touch
/cast Rune Strike
/cast Icy Touch
My hope was if Rune Strike is available it will cast it, if not then Icy Touch. Seems simple, but mashing it has no effect!

Thanks for the help!

I believe Rune Strike used to be an "on next attack" ability like Heroic Strike for Warriors and Maul for Feral Druids. They are not like that anymore and are on the GCD.

Macro's cannot check for conditions. IE: if x is off cd do y else do b.

RS doesn't have a cooldown. Macros like what Flarin posted above used to work pre-4.0, as RS is a reactive ability - it was only usable after a dodge. What brotherhobbes posted is truth - I had to ditch my macros, too, and put RS on its own button.
