I checked around and didn't really see a sticky on a Scholar macro guide so I thought it would be nice to have one maybe ^^. This guide is a basic setup for using the Books/Macro sets and "/macro book#" and "/macro set#" commands to have a relatively easy flow to the spells you would use as a Sch.

The examples I have below are for Sch/Rdm, but the setup can be the same for any subjob. Also where you see a "|| 2-- ||" or so, this is where I intentionally didn't put commands in that macro number. Mostly cause I like to try and have spaces in between some of my commands so I don't accidentally hit one command over another, but this is totally optional.

Some may feel this is a bit complex, it may be to some extent. However the main focus here is that this type of setup I mostly use for faster access to most (if not all) of the spells in the Schs **** For me its not that confusing once you get the hang of it, but for one I use a controller as well. So much easier to me, but that's cause I'm not that great a typist lol.

Here is the Guide:

    ===================================
    Macro Aid.
    "Switch": A macro which will use the alter art and send you to the “Starter Set” for that art. A rule of thumb is to keep this macro on Alt+1 for each set. Example: Player is in “Light Arts” in the “Starter Set” or a “Spell Set”, the line of code in the Alt+1 will be:

    /ja "Dark arts" <me>
    /macro book 2
    /macro set 1
    /recast "Dark arts" <me>
    /recast "Light arts" <me>


    “Spell Sets” macros i.e. (under light arts: Basic, Enfeebs/Nas, Buffs1, Buffs2 and under dark arts: Elementals, Helix, Enfeebles) send you to the corresponding sets under each book for those spells. Also use the remaining lines for equips. Example: Player is in “Light Arts” in the “Starter Set” and wants to go to the “Basic” set, player will go to macro #7. The macro line of code will be as follows:

    /macro set 2
    /equip ...
    /equip ...
    etc.

    "Back": A macro that sends you back to the “Starter Set” or a set of your choice i.e. (from the “Enfeebs/Nas” set under “Light Arts” Book, it will send you back to the “Basic” set. From the “Buffs1” or “Buffs2” it will send you back to the “Starter Set” for that Book. A rule of thumb is to keep the “Back” macro on Ctrl+1 for each set.


    A pictorial guide as well as where I got the basic setup for the macros can be found at ffxiclopedia here:

    Hope this guide helps.
