tittle says all, im tired of pressing 1 for each ordinary attack, so are macros allowed in the game?

PD: im refering to the simple main attack, skills are actually well.

I don't understand what you're looking for.

There is a setting that allows you to select the nearest target when you attack, whether its a major or simple attack. Also, unlike WoW , there is no auto-attack in this game. In fact, this game plays much more like City of Heroes to me than WoW when it comes to attacking and using skills.

Maybe you can elaborate a little so I can get it through my thick head exactly what you want to do?

sorry about my bad english xD

I want to know if keyboard or mouse customisable macros are legally allowed in the game, for example a simple macro wich auto attack the target while pressing a key.

Nope, the rule of thumb is one action per keypress. Now, if you want your attacks to automatically target the next available enemy....there is a setting for that under Preferences for auto-targeting.

If you want to spare your fingers, get a Logitech G15/115. That's what I use. Besides simple macros, you can use it to hotkey all your toolbars which is very nice, especially after level 30 when it becomes impossible to keep all your necessary specials on one toolbar.
