Magistrella's Guide to SMN Macros

These are based on my (Char: Magistrella Server: Carbuncle) SMN Macros, if you find any copies using this exact guide pls PM me @ - Name: Magistrella

1. Basic knowledge

To understand how i planned my macros you have to know how to use the commands /macro set and /macro book, as well as you will
not find an easy guide here where you just press one button and get what you want, this is made for Pros not for lazy people

/macro set # brings you to a certain set in the book where you are
/macro book # brings you to a certain macro book

If you use both command lines in one macro it doesnt matter which you use first since the set # will be kept even if you change book #

Now we found a whole new system with all these fine /macro commands - Thanks to that we can make us a

2. Command Central

from where we can go everywhere and use our skills there

Explanation of Single Macros

  • Back: Contains only /macro book 1 and /macro set 1 - if you should happen to summon the wrong smn and have to go back quick
  • BPs: Contains a list of all BPs written in macros for the respective Summon, if you should ever forget where a BP is and what it does, form: /echo ALT+5-0 BPName | Description
  • II: contains /ma Cure II <t> and a /equip main "Light Staff" with a /wait 3 to change back to Fay Crozier (or respective Staff if you dont have a Fay)
  • III: Same as II just with cure III and /wait 4
  • ALT+5: Highest lvl Physical Damage BP, i.e. Avatars lvl 70 Fenrir lvl 65 BPs Diabolos and Carby dont get any good ones so Carby has Nails at ALT+5 and Diabolos got its Netherblast
  • Ward: Most used Ward respective for Summon, you can add the ward you want just make sure its all the same ALT+# so you dont get confused too easily

4. VERY Important: Regarding All BP Macros

ALL BPs have -BP gear in it - in my case three pieces Relic Horn, YY robe, Relic pants as well as a lead to Book#1 Set#2-9(one set for every avatar), which makes you change back to your original equip and the Macro book/set you came from

5. Other Tasks

Explanation of Single Macros

  • Elements: Summon Elemental for Siphon Important: Make it the same order as your ALT+# as you summon the avatars - match the elements and you wont forget where which Element is - /equip relic body if you have it (Relic Horn for Weather Perpet- is optional but i would not give up 5 smn skill from AF horn for -3 perpet less)
  • Siphon: Uses Elemental Siphon macro lines: /ja "Elemental Siphon" <me> /wait 2 /pet "Release" <me> /macro book 1 /macro set 1
  • II: Cure II
  • III: Cure III

6. Graditude to

Espc. Schneelocke, without him i never came to the idea to use /macro commands and would never be able to play SMN so fluid and professional
SM LS, for a complete SMN relic set to get even the best out of SMN
Babyj for requesting this guide, or i wouldve always been too lazy to make one
