    Default How to Make a Macro

    Could someone explain how you make a macro in the game for casting multiple anthems/motifs etc to that one key? I used to know in other games but I can't figure it out in RIFT. Sorry for the stupid question.

    I don't know how to, but I know you can't have a Macro doing more then one thing. However, you can have it so it goes After one do two, after two do three, ect.
    Find your Rift answers to FAQ here.

    They actually removed the ability to do this last Beta. Macros will only fire off with later abilities if the first ability is on cooldown.

    G15, Naga, most decent gaming mice will work for you. If you wanna learn to script, try Autoit but I really dislike it over Naga.

    If I recall, making a Macro is Rift is just like making a Macro in let's go with World of Warcraft, expect the Commands and Text and etc is just a bit different.

    For example, in World of Warcraft if you were to make a Macro that used your Trinket and then Casted a Fireball, it would look like this.

    /use Trinket
    /cast Fireball

    In Rift, it would look like this.

    use trinket
    cast fireball

    I've only managed to make 1-2 successful Macro's in Rift so far myself, but I honestly think there should be a Forum Section for Macro's and etc so people can post FAQ's and Guides, imo. Also, if you type /help In-Game, you get an entirely huge list of all the commands and stuff that you can use. I've yet to explore the huge list myself entirely, but I'm sure someone will make a guide sooner or later on how to make some good macros.

    how many macros can you sett up? can you set them up so they cast each other?
    Macro 1: Cast X, activate macro 2
    Macro 2: Cast X, activate macro 3
    Macro 3: Cast X, activate macro 4 etc.

    that would be a way around it.

    Thanks for the input, I am fine without being able to make a macro as long as my competition has to button spam too I hadn't noticed a forum for it so I thought I would bring it up. I have an old razor diamondback mouse that used to be pretty cool back in the day, but when I played WAR I couldnt get it to work, it hasn't seemed to work on qbinds since DOAC :/ I guess its because of the game not the mouse.

    You could check if the software for the mouse has been updated or a general software upgrade from Razor to allow use with more of todays games.

    thank you for setting this up, just so i inderstand in your exapmle it would make a button(icon) that you add to your hotbar which would cast Motif of Tenacity if I mouseover it? Is the complete macro text exactly what you have put in the command interface, I ask because I dont see the /cast Motif of Tenacity part in the text. Thanks. I'm sorry again for being way out of my element on this.

    Limiting macros to one ability makes them absolutely worthless.
