Tired of repeating the exact same skill or action combination over and over? Aion will allow you to create Macros to automate multiple commands in a single click. These commands can be assigned to your skill bar just like any other skill or item. Currently, you can only have 12 built macros. There are tons of combinations you can create using the macro system.

Tips

Tips edit

-Dragging a skill, function, emotion, Quickbar or item icons onto the Enter Macro Command box of the Edit Macro Window enters the command automatically

- You cannot enter another macro within a macro.

- Some commands may require sufficient cooldown time between the execution of commands.

- Macros are stopped when there is not enough MP or HP to execute a skill, or when there is no target.

- You can use the Example tab to see how you can use commands.

- You cannot use macro commands in the Chat window.

- You can Cut & Paste from an external program such as Notepad. So, even though you can only have 12 built macros, you can quickly and easily switch them out if you store your Macros.

-Macros built on one character will NOT carry over to a new or different character.
