    Default Bards...just get a G15 type keyboard

    Just saying, it helps a lot. I macro'd all of my motifs onto one G key, in one sequence. You can set custom delays in between each motif and even set a loop so it repeats every 30 seconds to refresh buffs. The in game macro command doesn't let you stack them in one macro so this is an option to make things easier to manage.

    G15 is a great keyboard, but for people who don't want to spend that much money, there are keyboards out there for $30 that can do the same keyboard macro (although logitech and cyborg keyboards, I have found, are the easiest to actually make the macros).

    Even 3rd party software that will do it, but not sure how Trion would like that.

    G13 gamepads have this feature too as well as the G500 mouse.

    Personally I think it's worth the investment since you can apply this to any mmorpg, extra keys to map to and everything. Here's what a 4 motif macro sequence looks like on my setup.... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...ardR/macro.png

    It will be slightly faster if you remove the key down/up delays.

    Okay, possibly stupid question incoming so be prepared. There are currently in game macros and there is a wait command for those macros right? Why can't we just make a separate repeating macro for each motif so we have to press the buttons as we enter combat and they auto refresh while we fight?

    Because the wait command was removed/doesn't work.

    Does anyone know of an easy to use application similar to the Logitect/Razer ones that will let you make macros regardless of the keyboard you have?

    It's weird, I bought a G15 because I thought it'd be useful to have the macro keys for either macros or extra keypresses, but I can't bring myself to use them for games when they're not 'permitted'. Go figure.

    To be an effective smart *** you need to know what your talking about first. I highly recommend you read the TOA before talking about rules.

    Some things are just better left unsaid.

    It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.

    I'm speaking in general terms, here. I bought it back when they came out and I was playing DAoC -- didn't use the macro function there (though I did use them as extra keybinds). Same goes for when I started playing Warhammer and rolled my KotBS. Feel free to get the sand out of your mangina at any time, bud.
