    Default Bard macro

    Hey, I have just made a bard role and am a bit confused by it all at the moment, is there anyway to a macro to cast my motifs or do I have to cast each individually? Thanks

    Individually or get a G15 keyboard to do it for you. They removed the ability to macro them some betas ago

    Is there a ingame macro for switching hotbars? If yes, then you could do:

    macro 1:
    cast motif
    swtich to hotbar 2

    macro 2:
    cast motif
    switch to hotbar 3

    macro 3:
    cast motif
    switch to hotbar 1

    put them all on the same hotkey number. then you have just to spam the one hotkey for all your motifs.

    Agreed. The Razer Naga can do this as well.

    I play on my laptop so the G15 isn't ideal but maybe I'll look into the razer. Honestly, I think at some point, the motif mechanic will be made easier but it might be 6-12 months down the road.

    You don't even need a G15 keyboard.

    Look up autohotkey. Its simple software that can do it all. It just simulates button presses and i know people that have used it since beta.

    Autohotkey works best. You can even just google - 'rift bard motif autohotkey macro' and get one set up in about 30 seconds.

    I give this advice to any bard I chat with in game, as there is nothing more painful than manaully refreshing motifs - let alone keeping track of when need refreshing in combat!
