Hey guys I'm looking to make my action bar more efficient and was wondering what you consider to be essential macros for the job.

I was hoping Gnu would post his macro guide. :P

Honestly, I only use two macros on BLM:

1) Virus that has a /p line in it to coordinate with others on when to use it
2) Eye for an eye to coordinate with others on when to use it

That's it. :\ I've found it's easier to just hit every single ability/spell.

Our class isn't very macro-able, in my opinion. With the way we need to time spells precisely to get the Umbral haste on a second fire cast, I think we lose too much trying to macro even if that is the only thing we lose.

Save the macros for crafts.

I use mouseover macros for anything that targets another player: Apocdskljfkfjsdlkfdsfjksddlstasis, Physick, E4E, Intervene (ok, I know it's not named "Intervene" but I can never remember "Aetherial Manipulation"). I also have a mouseover Sleep macro that's really leftover from before getting the AoE Sleep trait. It's nice to be able to use our CC/utility stuff without losing track of the current target.

Alright. I've spent enough time at Level 50 to know which ones are critical, and which ones don't work. I will make the Guide later tonight and post it here.

The only issue is that the way I have them setup, you have to know how to use the macro to make it do what you want. Every great now and then, maybe every 200th cast, my main macro pops out a Blizzard III at the wrong time. Considering how many mistakes the macro has saved me, this is a decent trade-off in my book. I'll just have to explain that in the guide.

There was really no need to necrobump this and post the exact same thing. :)
