    "new updates to macros" .... ?

    If you want to bind all of the motifs to 1 key you can't do that without 3rd party software.

    Well they did have it so you could bind all of the motifs to one macro but now you cant anymore. What 3rd party software? Is there something i can download to help me speed up my bard buffs?

    There are programs that can help you string together bard buffs as if you were using a "castsequence" type macro found in other games.

    The problem is I don't think 3rd party programs are allowed. Also, people are going to be hesitant to tell you what they are anyways because the more people that use it increases the chance Trion will put and end to it.

    In other words, do some research and learn for yourself. It's there.

    No idea what their policy is cuz all i do is using ingame macro's, but you can use a software called Autohotkey that can send several key's in one stroke, easy to program scripts for it aswell.

    Probably several out there already.. Google it i guess.

    There's a full cast queue available in the interface.

    You can also add [alt] [ctrl] [shift] modifiers to a macro to cast multiple spells with one button.

    Within the game interface?

    Where are these magical tools you speak of?

    I have made a macro and used the /help wait command provided and it comes up with the "Only one ability can be used with a macro" horse****.

    Whats the sense in having a macro system that only allows "one" ability to be cast? That isnt a macro, thats an easy way to bind "Taste the rainbow *****!" to a charge ability when you are a tye dye fan.

    They did? I've never been able to put more than one instant cast/0 cooldown ability into a macro, it will just keep casting the same one over and over.

    they removed it back in beta 4-5 or something.
    only way to macro insta cast no cd (apart from gcd) skills are using 3rd party equipment.

    3rd party automated programs are a no go.
    So i got a Razor Naga and now 1 click = motif frenzy. Checked the boards on the issue, and Trion have no issues with it or the special keyboards for that matter

    I use the razor naga as well, having my right hand on the mouse while utilizing the numpad buttons keeps me mobile, and I never have a shortage of keys. I LOVE it, wouldnt want to play a bard without it. Also, much cheaper than the G15 keyboard
