Rhazes on the official forum has taken it upon himself to contact GMs in regards to whether using keyboard macros (available with the Logitech G13, 110, 15, and 19 keyboards). And while the response may not be what every Bard was hoping for (especially the oldschool types), it’s nice to get a definitive response to whether using keyboard macros to cast Motifs is a ban-able offense.
For those looking for an official response read below. Its is as expected as long as your at your computer and able to respond to a GM your not botting. Using long looping macros might get you a tell from a GM but as long as your there its not botting. I will still be using my advanced macros because I’m always playing my computer when they are running. When farming I never look like a bot because I’m actually playing my character so the chances of me bing reported is slime to none. I’ve used a G15 in many MMO’s and have never been asked by a GM if I’m a bot.
My petition in game.
I need an offical confirmation if using a G15 is ok and running a looping macro for my motifs while im sitting at the computer playing the game.
Thank you for contacting us regarding Rift.
It is acceptable to use macros from gaming keyboards. If you start using macros which automate multiple actions, you run the risk of botting. If you are ever away from your keyboard and unable to respond the challenge of a GM investigating a botting report, your character may be banned. You are safest in not layering your macros with multiple actions.
If you have any additional questions or concerns then please don’t hesitate to let us know. Thank you for your continued support of Trion Worlds and for playing Rift. Your reference number for this question is 110221-000113
“Often times in games, someone will come up with an idea that they believe others will enjoy. Other people will look at the idea and work to improve it until it is ready to launch. After it is released, still others will look at it and continue to refine it. While it’s easy to look at specific things in Rift and say, “Oh, that came from this game. This came from some other game,” Rift is clearly taking the best things from each game and improving upon them to create something better.”—Rift: New & Innovative or WoW clone? (via rifted)

Yay for remixes! Dave Aude is always a great producer, and this doesn’t fail to impress me. The intro/outro is subtle and catchy, but a great transition too, which is exactly what it should be. Give it a listen.
