Tricks to condense macros, for those who play a lot of jobs or don't like having to switch between sets in battle. No third-party tools required. If any of these no longer work, let me know. I play FFXI irregularly and never play SMN anymore.

Single macro that summons and releases at will

/ja "Release" <me>
/equipset #
/ma "Fenrir" <me>

If you have an avatar out, this macro will release it; if not, it will summon Fenrir (or whichever avatar you specify).

Multiple blood pacts in one macro

/equipset #
/pet "Eclipse Bite" <t>
/pet "Flaming Crush" <t>
/pet "Mountain Buster" <t>
/pet "Spinning Dive" <t>
/pet "Predator Claws" <t>

When you don't have the right avatar out, /pet commands give you "...a command error occured." and it's treated as though there was a blank command on that line (like //). Since you only have one avatar at a time, macros with different avatars' blood pacts function as though they only have the one you need.

Ability with unrelated gear

/equipset #
/ma "Refresh" <stpt>

For example, refresh gear, or avatar melee gear. <stpt> lets you cancel the ability itself.

/smile motion <stpt>

/smile motion is a command that does absolutely nothing. /smile motion <stpt> puts a subtarget confirmation prompt wherever you want it. For example:

/ja "Release" <me>
/equipset #
/ma "Fenrir" <me>
/echo BP macros?
/smile motion <stpt>
/macro set #

Confirming the /smile motion prompt would continue the macro and activate, in this case, the change of macro set. Canceling the prompt would stop the macro and prevent everything after the <stpt>.
