Rotation Overlay

Today I was trying to follow and learn a rotation and I struggled at some point. Not about the rotation, but the mechanics of learning that, and then came the idea.

I can work on an Auto Hotkey overlay that the user can "type" the rotation sequence. Imagine that I can type/set and save those informations, like a name just for fast recognition and the (opening) and (loop) rotations. Suggestions needed

Name: Weaver Fire
Opening: 5493 (the numbers/letters on the keyboard that represents the skills)
Loop: 70111431118 (same as above)

The overlay tracks it's occurence and call for a next key to press (or something like it).

To you don't start saying it's going to press the buttons for me, nope! That's not the purpose of that and that would be a hack! It's more like a "rotation learn helper".

I'd like to hear your comments, suggestions and mostly, a comment from Anet letting me know if that is allowed.


  • So you are going to make an overlay that calls out the next button for you to press? sounds interesting if its not bannable. Id get a red post comment on it before you release anything just to be safe. What ive been doing is taking images of rotations for my revenant on dhuum. I take images of the skills i need to press in ORDER per rotation and put them in sequence...all done in an image file. Here is an example of what i did:

    id go windowed fullscreen and drag the screen to where i could just see my rotation, doing this also got me more frames during dhuum
