Macro in 2d please.

    I use Evil Omen a lot as an intensifier for other spells. I'm pretty new to 2d and am trying to have a macro cast Evil Omen, then cast Energy Bolt with only one keypress. Is this possible and if so could someone please post something I could copy? Thanks in anticipation.

    It would be something like

    Cast spell EO
    wait for target
    last target
    cast spell EB
    wait for target
    last target

    ? can you fit that?

    With the delayed hit on Energy bolt, you could probably switch those 2 spells around in that macro. Similar to how you can cast a Flamestrike, then evil omen real quick before it hits.

    Problem with this is, if you get interrupted during this you will have some casting issues for a few seconds.

    I recommend EB and EO on 2 different buttons.

    Thank you, I can fit that in however, after casting EO I get the message that I am already casting a spell. Do I need some kind of pause between that and EB? Thanks for the help.

    You probably wont be able to do it, 2d macro system is a bit tempremental at best of times even when single spell targetting. I used to have heal target self on a macro...soon got rid of it for heal on one button. Target self on another, and last target on a diferent.

    Much...MUCH easier and less complicated

    Absolutely.

    I keep Evil omen on my spacebar. I'm always slipping that in between different spells.

    Thank you both - have reverted to my old system of one action per key as you suggest. Thanks again.

    If you have UOAssist try binding TargetSelf and TargetLast to your mousewheel. Roll the wheel towards yourself to target you and away from you to target last. This keeps one spell to one keystroke and is an extremely effective setup for mages.

    Thank you, Phsycho. Have set that up and am getting used to it (only e-bolted myself once so far!) Thanks again all.

    It takes some getting used to. Wait until you heal your opponent and e-bolt yourself! :wall: :eek: :thumbdown:

    I used to have a macro to cast heal and target self set up in UO assist. After healing an opponent and hitting myself a few times I quickly changed it back.

    I do still have a cast heal target self macro set up on my tamer however, I'm not usually casting too many offensive spells so it works much better.

    Lol. Reminds me of when I first started playing and set up macros to heal myself and cure myself with one keypress each. Would cast heal then have to manually target myself. Then would cast say, ebolt, which would immediately target ME! Stopped all that pretty quick too.

    It's always nice to get ideas from other people, but remember to make the macros that are comfortable for you.

    For spell macros I like the keep it simple aproach. I use my main offensive and defensive spells butI don't make macros for everything. Too many to remember and I get confused! :gee:

    I pull the spell images off the spell book and set them around my picture frame and use these for the spells I use that aren't as important. like recall, gate, etc...

    Hehe, I forgot to add that making macroes that cast spell X and then automatically targets the spell can be pretty hazardous (and useless) especially in PvP. You're just better off making a hotkey for all the spells you use often - and like you said click the less useful spells.

    Proper use of LastTarget and TargetSelf queueing should be practiced as well, as I've seen quite a few mages poison or damage themselves and heal me :p.
