Hi all,
I'm also kinda swamped with too many actions on my gla atm. I use Ctrl and alt macros on the 2nd and 3rd action bars. Problem I have is that I want to take note on my action timers as well, and it's a hassle if it's not on the main action bar .

Any advice?

Ugh, sorry, can't help you there.

I don't think there's a solution. XD

But that's not necessarily a bad thing. I haven't even needed any additional space; I don't even use macros. It seems that there's no real need to have too many abilities -- if I can beat 30-minute leves in 6 minutes on a significantly higher difficulty setting, I don't see much need for anything but the ~10 most useful skills.

I guess kitty,

but I hope that can change because there are just so many good situational actions I want. Doesn't help when I'm such a munchkin gladiator. (I even bought a naga razor mouse for this ._.; )

I miss the FF11's macros and battle system. The macros here just seem to get in the way.

I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. If I do, it sounds like you want to know when your abilities on your alt and ctrl bars are ready. The echo system still exists in this game, although not as good as having multiple mobile action bars (ala every other mmo now).

Go into you control macros. Choose the one you want. Let's just say it's called "ability"
and it has a 60 second cool down.

/action "Ability" <t>
/wait 60
/echo Ability Ready!

Try that out for now. I'm fairly sure we're getting UI addons in the future. In which case all of this will seem completely unnecessary.

Hi transmigration,

I will give what you suggested a go but from what I tested 'last time' round, the echo after wait will bug out if another macro is executed.

Much thanks.

P.S. Yeh, I hope we'll get the UI addons soon too! this game is just more fun with more class actions :D
