    Default Ultimate Rift Macro Guide

    --Sorry guys for the very late update, i was just informed i could edit this thread!! Yey! but get ready for a MAJOR update to this guide in the next day or two!!! Thanks, BlackholeX--


    Hello guys,

    I would First like to thank everyone and Trion for helping make this guide a huge success, I have received a lot of positive feedback from it. I have not updated in a while, but now that I can edit it again I will try to keep it Up-to-date as possible! Be sure to keep posting your macros and helping anyone else out that needs it. I should have replied a few more times to my thread at the start so I had more space to work with, so I have to keep it as general as I can to conserve space. If I get the time I might make separate class macro sections and throw them in this thread as links. Thanks again for being patient with me!!! - BlackholeX

    **Advanced Macro Strings**

    Now to the bread and butter! To use the following strings you will need to create a macro. To do this you go to the options menu then select macros or simply type /macro. Here you can select a
    icon (or use the #show command to get the icon you desire) and enter the strings into the blank field. Once you create your macro you can place it on a spot on your AbilityBar. Some macros let you
    clear up AbilityBar space by organizing different spells into one macro instead of having every spell hot keyed (keep in mind those macros will only use "1" skill due to patching of stringed abilities).
    Below are a few example I have at the moment.


    *Assisting main Tank*

    target <Player Name>
    assist
    cast <name of your usual starting skill>

    *As a tank or puller let people know you are pulling while getting hate*

    party I am pulling the target %T
    cast <taunt skill or pull skill>

    *One button Follow command for a person you group with a lot*

    target <Player Name>
    follow

    *Healing – do this for all 5 group members and you have a handy 1 button heal for each, you can mess around with different skills and combinations but you get the idea*

    target <Player Name>
    cast <Healing Skill>

    *Chat warnings with skills*

    party I am Squirreling the target %T , touch him and you will get rabies!!!
    cast Transmorgrify

    *MouseOver Heal Example*

    suppressmacrofailures
    #show Basic Heal
    stopcasting
    cast [ctrl] @mouseover Heal Over Time
    cast [ctrl] Heal Over Time
    cast [alt] @mouseover Big Heal
    cast [alt] Big Heal
    cast @mouseover Basic Heal
    cast Basic Heal

    *Setting up Reactionary Skills - Be sure to put the reactants on top so it cycles correctly*

    suppressmacrofailures

    #show Flamespear (ranged ability)
    cast Furious Rage (reactive such as on block)
    cast Face Slam (melee ability with a cooldown such as 6 seconds)
    cast Reckless Strike (Melee Range Spamable)
    cast Stonespear (ranged ability with cooldown)
    cast Flamespear (ranged spamable)

    *Ever get tired of adding every planar damage item onto a bar, here is a solution!*

    suppressmacrofailures
    Use "Planar damage item 1"
    use "Planar damage item 2"
    use "Planar damage item 3"
    use "Planar damage item 4"
    Ect..
    Ect..

    *Swapping out weapon sets*

    equipslot 8 <main hand>
    equipslot 9 <off hand>
    equipslot 8 <main hand 2>
    equipslot 9 <off hand 2>

    *Example of a good stealth macro*

    #show Stealth
    suppressmacrofailures
    stopcasting
    stopattack
    cast Stealth
    cast Slip Away

    *Switching to DPS mode in a group but your tank is in danger??? try this if you are helping with heals on a tank for easy continuation of damage*

    target <Player name (tank)>
    cast <Heal spell>
    assist <---- retargets the target your tank is targeting, so you can just start casting DPS again.

    *Using chat in macros to remind you to rebuff*

    \\\Do This Step first\\\
    private # - Make a private chat

    \\\This is The Macro\\\
    #show <Motif>
    cast <Motif>
    wait 25
    <#> \\\Use the number of your chat\\\ - "Motif" is wearing off, re-cast it now!!
    party - This will switch your primary chat back to party mode for you. You can also use /say to go back to general chat.

    *Calling out Targets with group support*

    \\\Calling out a target\\\
    mark 1 @mouseover
    party Prepare to spike damage in 2 seconds
    cast @mark 1 debuff/snare

    \\\Rest of team applies damage with this double tap\\\
    cast @mark 1 Damage on a cooldown
    cast @mark 1 Spammable damage

    It's nice that your contributing, but for a sticky it'd have to be a bit more tidy/"professional". It comes over as a list of commands right now. :x I understand it but, it's not really that user friendly.

    i am literally paying for someone to tell me how to set a focus via a mouseover macro. you'd think it would be /focus @mouseover but that doesn't work.

    anybody know the solution for this?

    Thumbs down This isn't a macro guide

    Nice list of s/ash commands. However the OP is a far cry from a "Macro Guide".
    Cataclysm broke WoW, but resilience will fix it!

    hmm ...

    when I tried making a macro like this one :

    /cast “Buff spell”
    /wait 2
    /cast “Buff Spell”
    /wait 2
    /cast “group buff spell, buff spell”

    for my bard buffs, it didn't let me make 1 macro with more than one ability in it, could be a bug that will get fixed, but on last beta making a macro with more than 1 skill in it wasn't possible.

    I think i got it to work, i have to be sure to correct everything once i can gain access again, be sure the names of the skills are exact. It might be some sort of anti botting feature.

    yeah, the "wait" in there may be against the EULA, probably worth checking.

    Cheers J

    /party I am pulling the target %T

    Whats this %T, obviously I can deduce that it will put in the targets name

    however you make no mention of what it does in your guide, even tho you used it repeatedly


    or the @mouseover

    what other @ and % commands are there~!

    /Focus [name of player]

    Then use, @focus in your macro to heal your focus target, easy enough.

    Yar, after Beta 5 I believe chain macros were disabled. 1 macro = 1 ability.
