    Yo, i was just wondering if theres any possible way to make a macro sequence which sequences a macro command, like: “/???sequence changeactionbar 1, changeactionbar 2” and similar stuff. Please respond ;)

    greetz! i just been writing a vrykul drinking helmet buff macro, and need to report that the ‘/cancelbuff’ command does not appear to work anymore, the alternative solution i found is to use ‘/cancelaura’, which seems to be used to cancel any buff nowadays.
