How do you create a multiple ability macro?

So I want to create a couple of macros for my Savage.

One macro would use my offensive buffs (Combat Speed, Damage Add)

The other macro would use my defensive buffs ( Parry, Evade, and possibly resists)

Would anyone be able to help me set those up? Thanks!

Re: How do you create a multiple ability macro?

dont listen to him, all you need is a program called autohotkey

as long as you only map multiple actions to one button it is totally legal on this server, jsut dont add any conditions or repeats

the video is not the best but it shows you how to write your first little script

i made it like that slam automatically equips my shield/sword before executing, same for the two hander styles the other way around

Re: How do you create a multiple ability macro?

Word of caution. Don't forget you have it running when you play other games. It's one of those programs that get flagged by anti cheat softwares. I know Blizard has openly said using it can get you banned ( https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/overwatch/t/can-i-be-banned-for-using-autohotkey/75928 ) PUBG has banned people using it, most MMOs don't allow it because it automates gameplay. Just google up AHK and being banned from games. Lots of people being banned, and game companies saying they can ban you using it. Don't have it running if you plan on playing something else. Some anticheats will even flag it being just installed.

Quick question: Does the script still run while you're chatting in game? Is it safe to bind to keys I wouldn't use while chatting?

Thanks for the warning.

I may just go with the mouse button route.

"Hey all,

The previous post was not entirely accurate and there were some places I could have phrased things better. I’m leaving it for posterity and going to link to this post in the initial post for further clarification. Sorry for any confusion caused.

Macros themselves are not the problem, but various scripts that can be run with the program are. The question here is “can I be banned for using AutoHotkey” and the answer remains “Yes.” The behavior you use it for, however, is considered when banning accounts and appealing bans. If you are using it for normal hotkeying where one button creates one basic action you could normally do with a mouse or keyboard, where you fix a click problem, where you’re binding q to your page forward button, whatever, you should be fine.

We’re not aware of any bans which have occurred due to the use of simple macros, but the fact of the matter is that usage of programs like this are going to be at your own risk and your account may be banned if we detect any ‘questionable/unfair’ scripts being run. In general if someone is banned for usage of a program like this, it’s probably because they weren’t using it for simple macros but something else entirely. If that’s the case, a mouse button issue isn’t going to be a sufficient defense. I’m not saying this is what you’re doing by asking this question, but more announcing for anybody else who might see this post as a wholesale endorsement of this software.

In the event that anyone feels the closure of an account is not accurate, you’re always welcome to appeal through customer support and they’ll give it a look, but in most cases we are extremely confident in the initial action we take. It’s not common for something like this to be overturned.

If it were me, I’d still fix or replace the mouse, but I understand sometimes you have to work with what you’ve got. If you’re going to use some kind of macro to work around it, be very careful about what scripts you select with this program."



blizzard wont ban you just for having the program installed tho ...... it sliterally written by one of their employees in the thread you posted

just dont run any scripts while playing a different game ..... opening / closing a script is like one click xD

Unfortunately with any macro software, unless you have a turn off button, it will always affect what you're typing. I have like 3-4 buttons macroed for this game. a actual macro key on the left of my keyboard, and the 1-4 keys I believe. I have the 1-4 to help with swapping between ranged and melee, but if I talk and type with numbers using it, it always comes out like "I have b1 b3 apples" when I want to type "I have 13 apples"


What keyboard do you have?

Yeah, this is just a more drawn out post of what I said. They 'CAN' ban you for it. Don't forget you have it running if you go on another game. Some companies can ban you for having it installed. Can is a word I made sure to use.
