  • Advanced Options: Displays the advanced options list, allowing control of all internal macro variables.
  • Run Macro: Enables macro action. Turning tank On/Off functions more like a Pause.

  • Force Buff: Use this to force a rebuff, turn the macro On/Off to Pause the buffing sequence, it will resume where it left off
  • Cancel Force Buff: Cancels a Force Buff sequence.

  • Monster Range: The maximum range at which the macro will attempt to engage targets.
  • Ring Range: The range that ring damage is expected to carry.
  • Approach Range: When navigation is enabled, the macro will run towards a monster that is within approach range until it is within monster range.
  • Follow/Nav Min: The range from a waypoint at which the macro considers the waypoint to be reached.

  • Enable Buffing: Enables the buffing subsystem. When this is disabled, no self buffs will be cast.
  • Enable Combat: Enables macro combat. When this is disabled, the macro will not attack or debuff targets. HOWEVER, the macro will continue to heal itself, navigate, and loot.

  • Enable Autostack: Automatically stacks stackable items in your inventory.
  • Enable Autocram: Automatically moves items from your main pack to side packs.
  • Use Dispel Items: Causes the macro to use Gems of Stillness/Condensed Dispel/Society Dispel/Black Potions when a level 7 vuln is present on your character.
  • Cast dispel self: Causes the macro to cast Eradicate Life Magic Self when a level 7 vuln is present on your character.

  • M. Charges when off: Allows Vtank to recharge Mana on items even if Vtank is Off.

  • Boost Nav. Priority: Causes the macro to navigate before attacking.
  • Boost Loot Priority: Loots corpses before attacking the next monster. Use this option when you care more about loot than kills, and you are not able to clear the spawn fast enough to finish looting everything.
  • Peace Mode When Idle: Switches to peace mode when not attacking. Usually used to improve regeneration rates when waiting for a respawn.
  • Rebuff When Idle: Causes the macro to recast buffs that are running low early, when it is not doing anything else. This prevents buff timers from running out in the middle of combat.

  • Summon Pets: Enables the SummonPets advanced option
  • Custom Pet Range: When Enabled, summons pets at the custom range rather than Monster Range
  • Pet Min. Monsters: The minimum number of allowed pet targets within pet range before a pet is summoned. (based on either Monster Range or Custom Pet Range)

Meta tab

See Virindi Tank Meta System


The Virindi Tank Meta system is a way to control what the macro is doing on a higher level than normal operations. The system allows you to implement a Finite-state machine. This machine consists of rules and states. For Meta to operate, the Enable Meta Actions checkbox on the Profiles tab must be checked.
