I am a long time FFXI player who took complete advantage of the macro system.
I have been implementing macros in FFXIV but they just dont feel as useful as FFXI. It feels as if I should be using the hot bar. I mean they are nice because I can stack abilities before spells that otherwise might not get taken advantage of (ie dark seal before a spell)
What do you guys use, and any tips on getting used to the hot bar?
FWIW I use a gamepad to play.
