Yesterday, I bashfully admitted that I don't use the /focus feature
in the default UI as much as I should -- in fact, aside from a totem dropping macro
I put together a long time ago, I haven't used macros nearly as much as I should. It's not that I don't want to -- I'm sure I could be a better player with more macros (like the ones found in our Macro Anatomy column
) -- it's just that as I said in the /focus post
, there are so many ways to use macros
that it's kind of tough to figure out just where to put them in your gameplay.
So let's talk about macros -- do you use them? If not, why not? And if so, how do you use them? Of course, we all play different classes, but within your class
, where do you find it's easier to use macros, and it's easier to play things manually?
A lot of good players could probably become great players with a few easy macros
, but for players who have no idea what macros are for, it's sometimes hard to figure out where they fit. If you do use them, how?
