Anyways, I'm having trouble with my Macro's and a basic understanding of them. I just got Sneak Attack and I've been doing some reading up on it. Long story short, could someone review this Macro chain and tell me if it's correct. What I'm looking for is to use the timer so I can ready a second SA in as little time as possible.
/party Readying SA and WS attack
/ja "Sneak Attack" <me>
/echo Sneak Attack is Ready
/ws "Wasp Bite" <t>
Redo your macro to:
/p (blah blah SA+WS on <t>! whatever)
/ja "Sneak Attack" <me> /wait 1
/ws "Wasp Sting" <t>
The prob was that you were firing SA...then telling the game to wait 60 seconds before using Wasp Sting, by which time your Sneak Attack would have already been used on a regular hit. ^^
Also, there is no need to /echo anything to yourself anymore. If you use any other macro before one with an /echo finishes, you won't receive the /echo. Here's what you should do instead: pick a macro spot where you want to echo your timers to yourself, and type in the following on seperate lines:
/recast "Something Or Other"
Be it a job ability, spell, 2 hour, etc., anything that is on a timer. Use the same rules for quotation marks, capitlization etc. as applies to other macros. So a THF's recast macro might include any of the following:
/recast "Sneak Attack"
/recast "Trick Attack"
/recast "Perfect Dodge"
When you hit this macro, the game will automatically echo back to you your remaining time, like so:
[Sneak Attack] 0:14
[Trick Attack] 0:15
[Perfect Dodge] 1:20:30
And so on.
One final piece of advice, I would suggest that you set up several macros for your THF abilities. These are the ones I use:
1 - main weaponskill I'll be using, on its own
2 - Sneak Attack on its own (mostly for solo use at my level ^^)
3 - Sneak and Trick Attack
4 - Sneak, Trick, and the weapon skill I'll be using stacked together
At your level you're simply trying to SA as much as possible and stack your WS with it when you can, so ignore #3 for now, and amend #4 to be SA+WS. So in your case, just hit your /recast macro to find out when you can use SA again. If you don't have TP by the time it's up, hit the SA-only macro; if you do have TP, hit the one with SA+WS. Then you're free to spam that /recast macro to find out exactly when you can SA it again. ^^
