/action "Ferocity" <me>


I recommend:

/shout Hey everyone, I'm casting ferocity!
/l Self Buffing, everyone!
/p Casting a buff on myself!
/action "Ferocity" <me>
/shout I finished casting!
/l Got it!
/p Finished Buffing!

Everyone will love you for it.

You must equip it first to a slot on your bar, then you can use it. See my signature for an exceptionally detailed command guide and examples thread.

I have one macro to setup my actions and another for using them
Equip Macro (For Setting Actions to the Action Bar)
/eaction 5 "Ferocity" main

You can ommit main and it will equip it using your main hand as default.
Macro to use the Ability on yourself
/ac "Ferocity" <me>

So it doesn't matter you already have the skill equipped?

You have to equip it on the macro itself every time?

Because I have Ferocity already equipped as skill 10 (or 0 however you look at it)

Thanks for the heads up, I'll try it when I get home.

To clarify, if you already have it equipped on your bar and it's not grayed out (you can use it by hitting that hotkey) then you can use it from the macro.

/ac "Ferocity" <me>

you don't have to re-equip it for it to be valid, but you do have to make sure you had enough points left for it to be active.

I have not tested Ferocity as i don't have a lancer of that rank, but you may not need to specify <me>.

Haha thank you for the laugh! I actually knew a taru in FFXI that did this exact same thing pretty much for everything he did.

k just tried it right now..

/ac Ferocity <me>
and
/ac Ferocity

both does not work.

but

/ac Skewer <t> does

Anyone know what is wrong with the macro?

[Edit]

/eaction 10 Ferocity works. So Ferocity is the right name for the skill. :(

Look at my macro above very carefully~

There are " "s around the action.

ah thats it :)

odd that skewer does not need "" and Ferocity does.

I was under the mistaken conception that single word abilities don't need "" (since skewer didn't need it)

Also odd is that if I use autotranslated {Ferocity} in the macro it doesn't work, quotes or not. But if I type it in to the chat box it does. So weird.
