Has anyone figured this out? I wanted to try making macros for my Sch so I could quickly control the fairys cure skill but nothing I've tried works.

I've tried a bunch of variations on /ac but nothing works

/ac
/pet
/petac
/pac
/pet ac
/ac pet
/acpet
/pets

I'm **** well hoping it isn't something they left out when they added Arcanist before P4 or something.

You don't need a macro, you can pull the ability from the pet spellbook menu directly to your hotbar.

Macros are VERY MUCH needed for pet abilities.

As an example, if they were not horribly broken right now, the following macros could be used to heal party members 1 - 4 by simply tapping the corresponding button on the keyboard.

/action "Embrace" <1>
/action "Embrace" <2>
/action "Embrace" <3>
/action "Embrace" <4>

Or you could use <mo> for mouse-over healing.

This is just one example of MANY that could be used if pet commands could be put into a macro.

Sure, could be, but not necessary to use the ability. If you just want to have an ability on your bar, it doesn't need a macro, you can just pull the ability. Macros are useful for specific functions, but to just have the ability you can literally just add the ability to your bar.

Are you using K/M or a controller?
