I had some problems finding this from Safehouse, so I thought I’d make a list and put it here. This is a combination of good macros to have, and what to put on your hot button bar.
First, I always have on my main hot button for any character:
1) Melee Attack (this is an EQ default).
2) Assist – which in turn is a macro for /assist; I always use this on conjunction with an f-key for targeting a group member. Depending on Leadership AAs, you may prefer to use ‘/assist group’, or ‘/assist raid’ (which work over a longer range than plain /assist, it seems).
3) Various others depending on class.
Item clickies go on the bar, if they are commonly used, like Fabled Journeyman Boots.
Also important abilities/disciplines; so for rogue I have backstab, disarm, intimidation, range attack, sneak, hide and pick pocket.
Another macro to have is evade:
For a rogue, it’s probably worth putting an opening attack (Thief’s Vengeance, or Sneak Attack), and Deadeye on the button bar, as these are both fast reuse disciplines; possibly Nimble as well.
