G15 macros are ok as long as ONE PRESS = ONE ACTION, using a button to use multiple macros is AGAINST THE RULES.

pretty much anything using in-game macros is fine. If you press a button and your character does something (e.g. cast a spell) that's cool. If you press this button and it casts and spell or another depending on something, that's ok. If you press a button and your character does things after a while (e.g. auto-chaincasting) that is automating.You can time spells in the sense of a casting rotation, like hitting it every time the gcd is up will cast a different spell, but if you hit it and it casts 4x fireball that is automating.

Okay am a warrior tank.Example of Threat cycleDevestateDevestateDevestaterevengeshield slam etc etc. etcWhat you are saying is that if i create a macro that automatically performs all these functions over and over again with just pushing the button once is a violation.But if i time the macro to perform the next available cast and keep pushing the same macro button, that is okay??? Am i correct?Thanks for your help in advanced.

To Loco:NO! Do NOT add timing to your macros! If Blizzard wanted to allow timed macros, they would have. People have been banned for G15 Keyboards for stuff simple as /cast /wait2s /cast Just don't do it! I rarely use the macro keys at all on mine.I have a G15(old version with 18 buttons) and the LCD plug in that comes with it (yeah!) for WoW scrolls through your ability scores and shows the names of incoming whispers. Totally useless, just read the whisper? The 2 features that actually make this Keyboard stand out (that the OP totally missed) are a "windows" key that you can lock out for gaming, and light up keys. so-so really.If you are going to spend $100 on a hardware peripheral, don't get this. Get an MX100 Laser mouse. 5 extra bindings for your RIGHT hand. Way more useful. Would be nice if you could bind the mouse wheel side-to-side scrolling on it, but the software doesn't allow. That's my only complaint with it.Another gadget that blows the G15 out of the water is the Egrodex (www.ergodex.com - I think these are being made under another name right now, but can't recall the new brand name. Look around if you wanna buy one) I had one of these shipped to me (get the extra 25 buttons) Makes any other game pad obsolete. Totally reconfigureable, moveable buttons. Link below is a pic of my setup, you will notice the G15 is MASSIVE. I'm gonna toss it and get something sleeker.http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/12/53/83/57/pic-2011.jpg

It's really simple to know if what you're doing is allowed.Did you make it using the built in macro editor? Did you assign the G keys to a button combo and then assigned that combo to trigger the macro? If both of these questions are "Yes", then what you did is allowed.
