Have you ever seen a LM quickly rotate between pets and wonder how they cycle so fast? Right clicking on the pet's portrait and clicking unsummon is both timely and tedious. With how much value pets adds to survivability and group play, it is extremely important to have the ability of unsummoning and re-summoning pets on command, as efficiently as needed.
To achieve this, we can leverage a simple macro to create an "unsummon" pet hotkey.
Every time I hit "1" on my skill bar, my pet is unsummoned.
1. The normal typed command is "/pet release" (no quotations)
2. We create an alias linked to this command. In this case, we will macro the skill to ";p"
/alias ;p /pet release
3. To add this to a button or hotkey, we link the alias using:
/alias shortcut ;p [NUMBER] , in my example /alias shortcut ;p 1
Hope this helps!
As pointed out by the kin, a more efficient way to create shortcuts is:
"/shortcut 5 /pet release"
