EQ2 Icon Macros in EQ2

Are you making full use of the in-game macro system in EQ2? Many people use macros to add a line of text to each cast – a most annoying use of the system, if you ask me! But far fewer seem to take advantage of the ability to cast effects or to set up systems for situational spells.

We already have a whole set of guides for using macros for everything from swapping from solo to group gear to creating a quick mute button but as things can be hard to find (the gnomes are working on a new navigation system) I thought I would take the chance to highlight the posts in a single reference guide.

    I was wondering if you guys had a macro for EQ2, where if i clicked the button, it would cast a buffing spell on my pet. I have not found one out on the internet yet, no one in world chat knows, and I couldn’t find one on your site either…I want to cast Prismatic Chaos on my pet, but everytime I use “%M” as the target, it says is not in the raid or group. But the spell does work on my pet, because when I manually target the pet and cast the spell, it works just fine. Thanks, Wicks

    Hmm, I know I had pet buffing macros but I have to admit, my memory is hazy. I wonder if the problem is that %m doesn’t target, it just names the pet of your target?

    Can you do it by using /target with the explicit pet name?

    AH or actually: /target_pet
