    seems like the macro system for ffxiv is alot like ffxi's. it made the battles so much more fluid then just hiting the spell or ability buy itself; like

    /equip "Thunder Staff"
    /equip "?? random int+ gear"
    /cast "Thunder 4"

    i know that example is off lol, its been 5 years since i even thought about macros so.. but any way... anyone have any unique macro set ups they would like to share? lol

    I sincerely hope we don't need to resort to gear switching macros. As a bard in XI, I feel like I was invisible more often than I was visible because of those damn macros.

    /wait 1
    /targetnpc
    /target <t>
    /ja "Focus"
    /ma "Thunder" <t>
    /ra
    /item "Potion"<me>
    <bt> (cast on party target)

    and if this is true I'm going to die of joy !!! spent hours on my macros don't ever remember opening my side menu in a fight... i could like get rid of the UI all together if they let me !!

    Edit for some more commands i remember

    Now regular ability/spell macros I loved. I'd just prefer we stay as far away from in-battle gear switching as possible.

    An assist macro is good for targeting what the tank is fighting. I would think you could macro your combos too. You can macro individual party member targeted Cures.

    1 Single panic emote is not enough for the ultimate dance. In FFXI I had a very long macro, I think there was about 40 /panics in that, along with other emotes. The dance takes approx 47 minutes to preform and is only for special occasions.

    I haven't found a tremendous need for macros at low levels. Certainly at higher levels they'll be handy but I think more in the vein of the modern MMO rather than all the super awesome funtime that was writing out 150 different macros for each job in XI.

    Things like /assist or /mouseover or /stopcast and the likes.

    The most use I've found for them so far is emote spamming at people :D

    Edit: My most commonly used Macros in 1.0 were the macros to switch gear and Job between battle lol. This is certainly no "XI redux" as far as macros go.

    Also I had the most epic Boost macro ever in XI. I probably have it saved in a document in one of my old PCs somewhere.

    The above was obviously only used 1 time for the lulz and then any time I wanted to bug the s**t out of people.

    This is not entirely my creation. It is something that is modified from something found on the old Windower forums, lol. Still I loved using it to be obnoxious as f**k.

    I had one that was a little different for my Chi Blast. I'll see if I can find it. It included 10 levels of boost which went on for ages.

    I also point you to this glorious macro though I can't take credit for it. http://killingifrit.com/forums/topic/158460-the-mother-of-all-booost-macros/#bottom. And now I will stop derailing. Sorry I just used to love macros in XI so much for the fun you could create with them, lol.

    I also had that boost macro to get some lulz.
