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.
