I thought a lot about this one, because there are a lot of minions I adore for different reasons : - Fat Cat, because it was gifted to me when I was in a super bad place and very down. It made me so happy.. - Nutkin, which @exkage gifted to me for my wedding with Carina ♥ . - Clockwork Barrow, Gaelikitten, Atrophied Atomos & Dwarf Rabbit, which @geisterfuchs gifted Ilwe IC (because she gave me some others OOC !). - Wind-up Tataru, @jancisstuff offered me for my birthday last year. - Wind-up Delivery Moogle, which is another gift from @exkage (did I already say how generous is Kage ?).
My favorite of them all is Morpho, I buy it myself (since I can’t drop shit to save my own life) and has a real importance ICly as it stands for Ilwe’ran’s fairy, Lurëa.. And also because I ADORE butterflies !
DAY 25 : Macro heavy or Macro light ?
Macro HEAVY, because I have some smol hands and reaching the keys can be super hard and thus I was having some cramps when playing healer and attempting to DPS. I just can’t hold the keys + CRTL or ALT and thus I had to adapt my way of playing.. Or rather I had to learn how to macro for them to be a SUPPORT and not a HINDRANCE.
Some people say that macros are just lazy and don’t allow you to be efficient as it delays your skills. This is only partly true. - Macros aren’t lazy at all so long you’re not using a full rotation in a macro and just.. Press one button and go AFK. At this point, you’re just a bot dude. - Macros don’t delay your skills so long you don’t use 2 GCD one after another with a /wait in between in the same macro. - For people like me, attempting to reach some keys to try and do some stuff between 2 GCD is very hard, so yeah, having Bloodletter in macro has been a lifesaver.. For real. - There are things macros can do better than you. It’s like that and you have to deal with it, macros are timed things and thus don’t deal with your “human” slowness at time, they are never tired or distracted, they just do their job. - Crafting macros are my things, because I become lazy when I need 3h to prepare some craft, I rather prefer pressing 2 buttons than 50 / craft. - Gathering become relaxing as soon as you associate your skills properly in macro so you use the same button to /mount and augment the gathering or to sprint and augment the quality (most efficient way to farm favors).
