This Macro requires MQ2Dannet Be Running On The SK and The Groupleader- if you have eqbc running it will Load Dannet Automatically for these 2 toons.
You need to
Create 2 Bandoliers
One Named Noripo - Ideally with 2 firebeetle eyes or Any 2 other items Like Tradeskill trophys that You cannot deal Riposite Dmg with.
A Second Called Wurm - With a Honed Wurmslayer and a shield ( anyweapon will work but WS rune makes this macro Much better)
Works great 1-75 Post 60 I would Recommend a Honed Wurmslayer.
Max Level i have been successful Running to is 85 - This was not IDEAL for the time spent it was just to see what Could be done. I still Recommend Stopping around 75 and heading to a Zone.

works great must have dannet and eqbc running
Solid macro - used it this past weekend and took my little bst from 10-60 with ease. Very few hiccups - mostly with the SK being pushed out of the zone sometimes - just play attended and you will see it happening and correct for the win.
Does the job. Good stuff. Gonna play with this one for a bit. :)
New User Review: I'm not a coder and this is one of the first add-ons that I really used...The instructions may seem intimidating, but try it - It is worth putting the time into learning. Ask questions on the forums, if you have them (I found the instructions for this a bit light). People here are super helpful, and nice, and patience. Most importantly they don't treat your questions as "dumb".

I took the time to get the Wurmslayer first for my SK - I would highly recommend doing that! I'm going to get one for every one of my SKs now.

The only step that I did not do was to map the zone first. Because watching the VV load windows, I saw that it was auto done as I entered each zone. I didn't have any issues skipping this step, and I ran this 30+- times.

Pro hint: don't use a Damage Shield (from an outside mage) until the mobs inside are higher level. I chose level 50 - YMMV. *

* by using the DS too early I didn't get credit for 90+% of the zone because they died too early. If you wait until later you shouldn't need as many runs as I did. Or, do more editing to the mac and gradually increase the DS as the mobs level.

I did have my bard dies a few times when he got aggro. My SK had a merc healer and wasn't ever in danger of dying. My party had a cleric, but the cleric didn't heal my bard. Likely that is by design (so the mobs only killed the bard and not the whole party), or I could have messed up something. Exp was so fast that I didn't bother to rez him, I just paused, released and waited 3 minutes and kept going.

The description said that it should mem spells for toons as they level. It never did for me. I just paused it every 5-10 levels and scibed them myself. As I was running CWTN files too, and had to shut those down to run this, maybe I shut down too much?

I would suggest you know how to start, stop, and pause the macro before going in - I found that super helpful.

This was very fun to watch run btw. I can't wait to do it again.
Fantastic Macro. Will use it again.
How do i start this? it isnt clear what to do to make it start doing its thing.
When you run it with a wizard, during the Cskills up...the wiz will keep rooting itself...so you may need another toon to do the PBAE...
Worked great for my bard 20-75.
