    Default Macros...

    First off, I'd like to say, why will Trion not allow people to cast multiple abilities in a single macro?

    It doesn't break the game, or change the game in any way, does it?

    It makes certain classes easier to play sure, but not game breaking.

    I mean.... How great would it be to be able to press one button, and have all of your motifs be cast in the order you have them in, with a second cast time between.

    Or, maybe put all of your warrior buffs on all at once.

    Now, why don't they allow us to cast more than one ability in a macro.

    What is so bad about doing something like this:

    "/cast "Motif of Tenocity"
    /wait 1 (Which means wait one second.)
    /cast "Motif of Bravery"
    /wait 1...."

    And so on. Whats so bad about doing that?

    whats so bad about having a line of buffs like everyone else does.....

    and besides, /alias (until recently according to forum) did allow you to do exactly what you said... you were just not creative enough

    I do have a line of buffs, but pressing 5 buttons every 30 seconds does get very, very repetitive....

    id say they want more player contact, what id like for the macros is to be able to cast a skill before the one i want even if it has no cooldown ect...

    EG :
    "cast Fork" "join to"
    "cast windspear" so then it casts fork before i use my spear abilities for example even though fork is 1 sec cooldown compared to 15sec on windspear

    Download MacroGamer. It presses those buttons for you every 30 seconds.

    Cast sequence macros essentially play the game for you. I'm all for macros making life easier and honestly, I do feel for bards because they truly have it the worst. But cast sequence macros are easily exploitable for other uses. Honestly, it is a game - why are people so lazy to play it?

    So buy a keyboard that lets you assign macros....

    I've played since launch and I don't mind pressing a line of buffs... repetitive, sure... but so is masturbation... still we keep doing it.

    I'd rather not have a system that presses them for me. I still want to have it interactive. So, people actually have to remember to push the buttons, rather than just sit there and just follow the group, and have the game played for them.

    I see nothing wrong with macros being able to cast more than one ability such as buffs, and buffs alone. It will make life much easier for bards (mostly.), and other classes that have a large amount of buffs they need to put back up after a wipe, or a death.

    I play on a lap top, not a desktop. Playing on a lap top makes it much harder to do that kind of thing. Hell, I just wish I had acess to a numpad, then I'd be all set. 1-5, F1-F5, and 1-0 on the numpad would be enough to have no issues, but for lap top gamers, its quite hard to do so.

    But, there are others who would like macros that actually do that. FFXI did it really well, and to do a large amount of abilities, and gear swaps from macros, you needed to push like 3-5 button combinations.

    Have you played a bard? Pressing 5 buttons over and over, as well as healing, and debuffing is a bit repetitive.

    Get a USB keyboard. I don't have numpad on my keyboard, so I bought one, works fine.

    That sounds exactly like every other class ever.

    I do tank as well, and I love it. Its not repetitive, nor very hard.
