Sharing my starter macro on how I would tank as WAR with /MNK on lower levels.
-Consider the party set-up- This may not be viable if you have a nuke happy player.

/ja “Provoke” <bt> (or <t>)
/wait 15 sec
/ja “Boost” <me>
/wait 15 sec
/ja “Provoke” <bt> (or <t>)
/wait 15 sec
/ja “Boost” <me>

It works correctly at my end. if you have an issue with your timer you can IRC Nasomi.

Any time I make macros for any job, I have a set of standards:


(Anything written after ## means that it is a comment, i.e. not part of the macro.)

Job abilities, magic, and anything that targets enemies:

+++ ## assist for alliances, high mob areas, dynamis, etc.
/assist <stpc>

ABILITY ## or main spell, etc
/equipset set#
/recast "Job Ability" ## If longer than a few seconds
/echo [Spell] cost: x mp ** <mp> ## of course only for spells, and only if it's 50+ mp or whatever
/ja "Job ability" <stnpc> ## I like to do things manually. If you need to just check recast, you can cancel out,
## i.e. for equipset only
## of course, use <stpc> for friendly, <st> if you need to be able to target both pc and npc


**str/dex/etc ## for stat mod ws
/equipset set#
/ws "Weapon skill" <stnpc> ## The pattern here is I prefer to have the option to cancel out of my macros

**element ## for weaponskill with elemental damage
/equipset set#
/ws "Weapon skill" <stnpc>

!non-battle-command
/map ## or whatever command you need

--range
/ra <stnpc>

(INC)
/p ***Incoming*** <lastst> ***Incoming***


and I'm sure I'll come up with more standards I use. :)

You should not voke whenever you can. You should voke when it is needed. Also usually if you press a different macro it should stop the /wait of your voke macro. That means you can only use that macro then. I think that is how it was on retail at least I think. That is why you can't really do something like a Sleep reminder for Sleep spell. Other macros will interrupt it.

hey dont forget you can put waits on the end of your macros i.e /ja provoke <bt> <wait 3> ; /ja boost <me> instead of /ja provoke <bt> ; /wait 3 ; /ja boost <me>

Yeah Warrior is usually a backup voke only. PLD and NIN are the ones who have to voke constantly and WAR only if BLM or other mages pull off of them. If you're main tanking, you should probably be voking every single time.
