Chat Macros

Chat Macros are used to bind a shortcut key to a phrase or word that you want to say in chat without typing the whole thing. You can bind chat macros by pressing F5 or selecting it from main menu (by pressing Esc).

They can be bound to the following keys: F9, F10, F11, F12

Chat Macros are especially useful when you are in a party and instead of typing the whole thing (which could result in getting you killed) you can just press the key corresponding to the macro. On the other hand, some people just use to store 'Taunts' in their macros.
