Macros and Commands

Once you’re comfortable with general gameplay in Lineage II, you can begin to explore the use of various chat commands, slash commands, Alt-key shortcuts, and macros. Commands provide additional actions that are not available through the in-game user interface. Chat commands and slash commands can be entered by typing them in the chat window, followed by the parameter, if required.


Chat commands

Basic Chat – To chat with other players in the nearby area, type what you wish to say and hit Enter.

Clan Chat – Type the "@" symbol and a message, and the message will be displayed to other members of your clan.

Alliance Chat – Type the "$" symbol and a message, and the message will be displayed to other members of your alliance.

Party Chat – Type the "#" symbol and a message, and the message will be displayed to all members of your current party.

Trade Chat – Type the "+" symbol before a message to send your message to the trade chat channel.

Whisper – Whisper is a private conversation between you and one other player only. Type a quotation mark (") before the name of the character you want to whisper to, then enter your message and hit Enter.

Shout – Type the "!" symbol followed by a message to shout the message to all players in a large area. There are chat filters enabled in Lineage II to help protect against spam and other abuse of Shout.

Hero – Type the "%" symbol followed by a message to broadcast the message to all players on the server. This channel can only be used by Heroes once every 10 seconds.

A macro is a function that makes it possible to perform a series of actions. To open the Macro window, press Alt + R or click Macro in the System Menu. From within the Macro menu, you may create, edit, or delete macros. Once you have created a macro, drag the macro icon to your shortcut bar to make it easily accessible. You can create and use up to 48 macros for each character.


Creating and Editing Macros

Once in the Macro window, click Add to start creating a new macro.

  • Select an icon for the macro. This is how you will refer to it when it is on your shortcut bar.
  • Name the macro. This is what you see when you mouse over the icon.
  • Give an acronym for the macro. These letters will appear over the macro icon itself to help you identify it.
  • You can choose to provide a description of the macro by clicking More Info.
  • Enter up to 12 commands. Slash (/) commands and chat symbols supported in the game can be used in macros. Substitute characters can also be used to add additional delays or input a desired name.

Substitute Characters for Macros

Substitute characters are commands for which the target's name is automatically incorporated into the macro function.

%target: The name of the current target is shown

%self: Character's own name is shown

%pet: Character's pet's name is shown

%party1  -  %party8: First through eighth party members' names are shown

Macro Commands

/delay [time]: Wait until time (sec). If this command is entered, the following command will be performed after waiting the given number of seconds.

Other slash commands that can also be used in macros:

/sit, /stand, /sitstand, /walk, /run, /walkrun, /attack, /attackforce, /exchange, /targetnext, /pickup, /assist, /invite, /leave, /partymatching, /vendor, /buy, /personalmanufacture, /mountdismount, /socialno, /socialyes, /socialbow, /socialunaware, /socialwaitinga, /sociallaugh, /socialapplause, /socialdance, /socialsad, /time, /loc, /partyinfo

Cancelling a Macro Action

If you start a macro but want to stop it from running, simply say something in chat or move your character.

Examples of some useful macros

Target Self for Heal

/target %self
/useskill Battle Heal

Pet Attack


Assist another player in combat

/target (name)

Macro Restrictions

A macro's name can be up to 12 characters, and the description can be up to 32 characters. Each individual macro has a total of 12 input (or command) rows. One slash command and its accompanying details can be typed into the input window with a maximum of 32 characters. A macro cannot be used within another macro. When using chat functions in a macro, the output is delayed automatically in the chat window to prevent excessive chat or spam. However, the buy/sell window does not require a delay.
