HOW TO create macros & macro basics

Public
1. Open the "Main Menu" and under "System" select "User Macros"


2. Select an empty slot from the "User Macros" box and then give your macro a name in the "Name" field.


3. Select the empty box below the name field. This is where you'll type in your commands for your macro.


My macro named "Swiftcast Fire II T" is written like this :

/action "Swiftcast" <me>
/wait 0.5
/action "Fire II" <t>

Line 1 tells my character to use the ability "Swiftcast" on myself. <me> is a placeholder.

Line 2 tells my character to wait half a second. (this is the least amount of time my character must wait before using the next ability)

Line 3 tells my character to action the ability "Fire II" on my selected target.


4. Your macro is created and now you just have to set your new macro on a hotbar and don't forget to keybind it if it's not already.


**Note : You only have to use quotations in your macro if it is two words separated by a space.


The example macro I used above requires that you already have an enemy targeted before using it. You can use other macro commands to automatically target an enemy first if you wish.


For a full list of macro commands, you can use a search engine such as google and search for macro commands realm reborn


If you'd like me to post and explain the macro commands in my blog, I'll do so but only upon request.



*If any of the information above is incorrect, please let me know so I can update it. Thanks in advance.

**Previous blog "HOW TO move inventory items between tabs"

**My blog will consist of a series of "How To" posts to help out, so don't be shy to follow.

can I do macro on PS3 ?

Februus Beauregard

Midgardsormr (Aether)

You sure can. You would use the directions above and then when the macro is created push the square button to set the new macro to your hotbar.

Questions! (sorry) 1.How many commands could you set up in a single macro? I'm low level so I'll use what I have as an example but, could I use my entire DoT rotation in a single macro? /action "Miasma" <t>, /wait 0.5, /action "Lightning" <t>, /wait 0.5, /action "Bio" <t>. Like that? 2. Are pet commands/abilites up for macroing? Thanks for this info, macros are still a little confusing to me.

Februus Beauregard

Midgardsormr (Aether)

Questions are good. You can write very long macros, but I do advise to not make long macros for battle. If a cast is interrupted then the macro will fail. I would write your macro like this:
/action "Miasma" <t>
/wait 2.5
/action "Thunder" <t>
/wait 2.5
/action "Bio" <t>
The reason I have a wait time of 2.5 here is because it takes 2.5 seconds to finish casting Miasma and Thunder.

Pets... I suspect SE currently doesn't have a way to macro our pets yet.

Ronso Barenheim

A good Auto Sprint Macro is as follows
(1) /ac "Sprint" <me>
(2) /automove
(3) /wait 30
(1) /ac "Sprint" <me>
then repeat like so (3)(1)(3)(1) until you can't make anymore lines. i'm not sure if you can combine then and use less lines though.

Februus Beauregard

Midgardsormr (Aether)

FATEs get really crowded sometimes and it's very difficult to target enemies. Even if you customize the in game filter, you still end up targeting pets. This macro works wonders for my Black Mage when I'm FATE hunting.

/targetenemy
/facetarget
/action "Scathe" <t>

Wawami Halfpint

Midgardsormr (Aether)

I'll keep that in mind Februus. Thanks for the helpful info! Really do like that sprint macro you made there also Ronso. I'm going to have to try that one when I get in later.

Handy one I have for 40 durability craft stuff.

/action "Inner Quiet" <me>
/wait 1.5
/action "Steady Hand" <me>
/wait 1.5
/action "Standard Touch" <me>
/wait 3.0
/action "Standard Touch" <me>
/wait 3.0
/action "Standard Touch" <me>
/wait 3.0
/action "Basic Synthesis" <me>

Februus Beauregard

Midgardsormr (Aether)

This has worked wonders for me as a weaver.

/ac "Great Strides" <me>
/wait 3
/ac "Steady Hand" <me>
/wait 3
/ac "Standard Touch" <me>
/wait 3
/ac "Great Strides" <me>
/wait 3
/ac "Standard Touch" <me>
/wait 3
/ac "Great Strides" <me>
/wait 3
/ac "Standard Touch" <me>
/wait 3
/ac "Careful Synthesis" <me>

All actions have 100% success rate. Items with higher than 40 durability will need to be finished manually.

Do exist a Macro that can call any other macro?
Or a macro action that can say "repeat this macro", on internet someone says /echo, but it is incorrect.

Laetherin Oderious

Midgardsormr (Aether)

I still can't figure out how people mark (1, 2, 3, 4...) in one simple macro or do they? I see it in dungeons a lot.

Laetherin Oderious

Another tip: Your wait time has to combine the cast and recast time. For example if you want to cast Thunder then Aero like I do write it like this:

/ac "Thunder" <t>
/wait 4.98
/ac "Aero" <t>

You're going to have to wait the time it takes to cast then you'll have to wait the time it takes to recast. Took me awhile to figure that part out.

Poe Rangutan

Gilgamesh (Aether)

i thought I read somewhere that wait times are rounded up, so wait 0.5 is really just wait 1. and wait 2.5 is wait 3.

Vellexis Belvare

Hyperion (Primal)

I'm a Monk and I want to macro the few DoTs I have to some of my melee attacks to clean up my hotbar and make it easier to keep them up during fights. Any idea how I'd macro them? I tried typing it out like the example presented,but only the first ability would cast.

Dragon' Beef

Exodus (Primal)

While fighting along side some characters i notice they'll be hollering out stuff while they are fighting in a bubble above their head. I can get my character to do that in chat box threw my macro. So how do i set up a macro to show chat bubble above his head?

Doradus Pictoris

Behemoth (Primal)

Question... I am having a problem with constructing Cure Macro's that work outside of parties... Such as at Fate Locations or just random spots in the game. I have my Cures set as such;

/ac "Cure" <1>

And I have placed this on the hotbar as a way to heal just myself. I than repeated this for numbers 2-4 as well. I have not tested this in a party yet. However I want to know if there is a way to mark players with a number and set a similar macro for those targets.

Aella Xhula

Sargatanas (Aether)

Curing outside party in fates, the only macro I have found to work so far is:

/ac "Cure" <tt>

Which stands for 'target of target'. It only works for curing whoever has hate at that moment.

Ember Saissore

Adamantoise (Aether)

I use this in dungeons so i keep shadow flare up as much as possible

/ac "Shadow Flare" <t>
/wait 25
/p <se.4> re cast SF

you have to have a tgt. or it will not work

Ryler Mcross

Gilgamesh (Aether)

Hey Ember what does /p <se.4> do?

Ember Saissore

Adamantoise (Aether)

It makes a noise to hear so you know to reuse the macro

Holly King

Ragnarok (Chaos)

Can u macro the use of a macro?

Februus Beauregard

Midgardsormr (Aether)

/ac cure <1> In party before you proceed in the dungeon, you can rearrange your party list. For example, if you want tanks to be 2 and 3, then just move those tanks to the 2 and 3 slots.

Februus Beauregard

Midgardsormr (Aether)

This is the macro for targeting marked targets.
/ta <attack1>
In the example above, this targets the target marked as attack 1.

I personally like to set my F1 key for /ta <attack1>
F2 for /ta <attack2>
and so on.

Right now, I do not think there is a way to macro the use of another macro. I imagine if there were, you could create several macros that link to each other and it would end up being much like botting.

Agia Thrax

Goblin (Crystal)

Has anyone come up with a good assist macro for ps3? I've tried them and i just get errors.

Nelleigha Niraja

Diabolos (Crystal)

Ugh..Are they gonna add Syntax: /ac "Job Ability" <t> <wait 0-60> command for macros lines.. Hurry up SE! *SMH* JK :)
As in F.F.X.I the Dev.team should consider implementing this feature into the game but I am grateful we have the use of 15 lines rather then 6.

Assassin Crab

Cactuar (Aether)

This has been most helpful, thanks indeed!!

Grfn Drf

Cactuar (Aether)

Question: Is it possible to get a macro to target a specific target and not just scroll through? Say I want to have one to heal my summon, is it possible to target my carbuncle specifically and then cast cure?

<me> targets self
<pet> target active pet
<1> first party member
<2> second party member
<3> third party member
<4> fourth party member
/petaction "Sic" <t> will cast an action off the pet action bar, this example tells your pet to attack your target

Wingod Revancroft

Hyperion (Primal)

Is there a macro command for "confirm"?

Rhimna Estre

Exodus (Primal)

RE: Vellexis Belvare

If you don't already know this you can set Monk skills like this:

/action "Touch of Death"
/wait 2.5
/action "Dragon Kick"
/wait 2.5
/action "Twin Snakes"
/wait 2.5
/action "Snap Punch"

Target doesn't have to be set, the skills work as long as you're targeting an attackable enemy. I've tested it in game on my PS4, though I'm not sure if console vs PC makes a difference. Good Luck!!!

Rhimna Estre

Exodus (Primal)

Edit: /action"Skill Name" (no space). Also, make sure that when you set up your skills for Monk, that you have the right form (IE: Opo-opo/Coeurl/Raptor)before you execute. Example Bootshine before True Strike. Or if you're at high enough lvl use Perfect Balance before the skill you want to use.

Reaper Jason

How do You know how much time to wait til telling it to exccute the next command

Karri Astra

Cactuar (Aether)

Can someone help me set up a macro for PS4 to auto mark everyone on the screen...

So if i see a mob of 4 or 5 guys, just simply hit one button and it'll mark them all with numbers.

I'm running a tank and this would be so helpful.

Thanks

Hyperion (Primal)

Hello!
Could anybody help me with a macro so that it shows a phrase or text when using a specific skill? I see that a lot but I have no idea how it´s done and everybody in-game kinda wants to keep it top secret and nobody wants to teach me.
Thanks

Octavious Valiant

Cerberus (Chaos)

anyone know how to use the hotbar change function in a macro for ps4? Basically my macro is on hotbar 2, when running to fate's on chocobo i hit the macro button get lvl sync'd and dismount :) however all my skills are on hotbar 1 so hoping to add the hotbar change to make it more effective.

Silvaire Eudestand

Malboro (Crystal)

Silvaire Eudestand

Malboro (Crystal)

octavious try going into your character menu whereever you set your hotbar stuff and see if you can make it work from somewhere in there

Jammuth Miyuki

Odin (Light)

I am on Ps4, and the level sync button is sometimes costing me FATES aswell as me not getting off my chocobo :P

here is my FATE starting macro (I'm a WHM)

/ac "Mount Roulette"
/levelsync on
/ac "Cleric Stance" <me>

Jaq'rain Firesoul

Mateus (Crystal)

Can you use a macro for gathering?

Xeranos Nairogek

Coeurl (Crystal)

THANK YOU. er an the wait command be used in tandem with cast time and text? as in if I want to make it look like I'm invoking the spell while said spell is casting then be able to say the Spell name once it has finished casting?

Cj Ryder

Jenova (Aether)

I have an issue I am setting up my mdr combos but it keeps telling me that heavy swing is not a valid action no matter how I put it.

Excalibur (Primal)

I don't suppose there is a way to make a macro that does two different things depending on weather or not your weapon is drawn?

Tomatu Yukota that one is easy. To have text appear in chat window after using a macro are these commands: /say (/s)
/shout (/sh)
/yell (/y)
/party (/p)
/freecompany (/fc)
/linkshell (/L1-8)

Arcavius Wolfe

Behemoth (Primal)

So to have text appear I would do /party followed by what I want to say? Do I have to use parentheses or quotes?

Thornazerick Yuki

Cerberus (Chaos)

Hi just to answer an earlier questions yes u can macro a pet using eg /petaction/embrace
However it will see target self as target self not target your char so u have to make a /target (chars name) to target ur char i use ps3 so this might look bad
1 macro i use is
/petaction /place
Wait 3
Petaction whispering daqn
Wait 3
Petaction embrace
Wait 3
Target (your chara name )
Petaction embrace
Hope this helps any othe scholars

how do i make one that makes sounds. like for ct's and towers and such?

Nikola Tesla

Moogle (Chaos)

Is it possible to have 2 or 3 actions in one macro line?
I have tried ";" and ",". But every time it would still jump to the next line instead of finishing all the actions in the first line.
I have searched the web for this, but no one seems to know.

Ophea Valefor

Exodus (Primal)

AS far as I have seen you can only use one action per line in a macro but you have about 15 lines in a macro you can use.

How do We change lines on ps4 for macros?

E'loomis Zaurora

Louisoix (Chaos)

Is it possible that automatically jumps from one enemy to the next.
As an arcanist if I could set up a macro that just went through the list of available enemies and dps'd them it would make my job very easy.

Schander Flint

Exodus (Primal)

Hello,

When executing a macro i've made I get an error "Protect Cannot be assigned as an additional or role action" Has anyone come across this yet?
