I'm not a fan of those combo macros (feels a little close to botting for me), mainly because should you miss one attack (especially the initial hit), the remaining hits are a waste of TP, as the chain does not proc.
I use Q/W/E/S for my movement, so A & D are re-bound as hotbar keys. I have A/Shift+A/Ctrl+A (and similar for D) as a combo (True Thrust -> Vorpal Thrust -> Full Thrust for A, Impulse Drive -> Disembowel -> Chaos Thrust eventually for D), so I can just slide my little finder over the modifier button, holding the ring finger over the activation button. X & Shift+X will be Heavy Thrust -> Ring of Thorns, with Ctrl+X for Doom Spike, concentrating AoE on that button.
In terms of macros, as a pure DPS class there isn't as much room/need to get fancy, say like <tt> (target of target) for CNJ's attack magic, ACN using Physick or THM cross-classing a heal. A few things I have found useful/read up on (only @ 22 atm): Attack CD macro
/ac "Life Surge" <me>
/ac "Bloodbath" <me>
/ac "Blood for Blood" <me>
/ac "Raging Strikes" <me>
... Defense CD macro
/ac "Second Wind" <me>
/ac "Keen Flurry" <me>
/ac "Featherfoot" <me>
/ac "Foresight" <me>
and so on. The order can be changed, and I keep two vertical hotbars at the side of the screen with all these abilities on there, so that a) I can keep track of CDs, and b) I can manually fire one later in the order if circumstances dictate. I have the self-healing ones up top, so I can use them as reaction buttons. In a raid, I may change the order, so I can take more advantage of Blood for Blood etc. Also, the LNC/DRG-specific ones are usually going to be more potent/longer lasting (due to Traits), so they will usually be higher in the order.
If you are not so concerned with the self-healing of Life Surge as the auto-crit it generates, stick it before your hardest-hitting attack (i.e. Full Thrust >26), with a wait for lag etc.
/ac "Life Surge" <me>
/ac "Full Thrust" <t>
On LNC, I am currently using Straight Shot from ACH (+10% crit chance). @ 40, when Heavy Thrust gets extended to 20sec duration, they have the same duration, allowing a buffing macro (Note: Heavy Thrust only buffs from the side!
). This should be separate from a standalone Heavy Thrust though, allowing the Heavy Thrust -> Ring of Thorns AoE combo to fire.

Just a few ideas - with no gear swaps, macro-writing skills won't be as important here as in XI. Also, head to http://www.eorzeareborn.com
, and read up on their Macro Overview. Very useful for all classes, as a starting point.
