I don't know a lot about macros in general. I was curious though, if there were a way to put BF and AR in a macro that would allow you to use them everytime they were off cooldown in a constructive manner. I have not been able to find anything posted about this previously, so I figured that I would ask the question of the people in here who are better versed in these things than I am.
Basically, all I want is to be lazy and not have to press the corresponding number to the ability on my keyboard because I have a tendency to forget to use them. If someone is aware of a pre-made macro for this purpose just point me to it and I will be thankful. Or the inability to make a macro for this would also be appreciated.
I'm not really sure what you're asking. You still have to activate macros manually. You could put them in macro so that you have to hit one button twice instead of two buttons once. It won't show their cooldown and it won't do it automatically when the cooldown is up.
You don't want to use Blade Flurry and AR whenever they are up in all cases. You have to time AR/BF to be effective in any sort of burst or only semi-sustained situation. On the other hand, if you are forgetting to using them when they cooldown DURING boss fights, well, I'm not sure what you are paying attention to. Playing a rogue is very simple.
Yes. It is mostly during the boss fights that I become forgetful of them. From what has been shown I have to assume that I need to be more observant of my cooldown timers. Is there a mod that gives you a visual or sound notification of when your cooldowns are up again?
Erm, but seriously (I'm going off memory here, forgive me) - I have the CT "button" around my mini map. Click that, and go to the 2nd (or 3rd) tab, there is an option for CoolDownCount, and another option to scale the text of it. I believe they're on the same tab, but I can't say I'm a big fan of the CTRA interface these days. Seems like they can't figure out how to thematically organize all those mini-mods.
FWIW I've installed the CTRA "core" pack, or whatever they call it, so YMMV depending on whether you've installed the same stuff I did.
