  • You can run a macro again.
    • After you've added a macro onto a shortcut bar, you can run it again by right-clicking it.
    • However, it'll stop running if you start any other actions.
    • If a macro consists of chat messages only, you can't run it again. If you're prohibited to use chat, the time counter is shown in a system message.
  • A macro can be copy-pasted with the Copy all and Paste buttons.

    • For example: /useskillforce, /useshortcutforce, /attackforce
  • You can add such a condition as stand on the same place by adding the stand postfix (like pressing Shift on the keyboard).
    • For example: /useskillstand, /useshortcutstand, /attackstand
  • you can delay running of the next macro command by using the /delay [sec.] command.
  • If you use items/ skill which have cooldown, there's ll be animation on the macro icon showing the time until the next usage. 60 sec. before the end of skill cooldown used in the macro, you'll the the times on the macro icon showing the remaining seconds. If several items/skill are used in a macro, then by default the item/skill with the biggest cooldown time is shown. However, if you use the %c command, you can show the cooldown time of the skill you want. If the %c command is used in the macro several times, you will see only the first usage of it.
    • For example: /useskill Dark Explosion %c
