Well I normally don't write long posts, but this one has to be. In light of Fury_Chaser not wanting to add a sticky to answer everyone's questions on Center of Being, I'm going to try my best here. Last time I tried, I got the damn html message(I don't have a clue why, I know nothing about html). Well here it goes.
Q: What is Center of Being?
A: Center of Being(CoB for the remainder of this post) is any melee professions ability to boost their Dodge/Counter Attack/Block/Defensive Accuity, depending on which melee profession you choose. Though out each respective skill tree you recieve bonuses for Efficiency and Duration. Efficiency is how well of a boost you get while Duration is how long it lasts.
Q: What is the CoB macro and how far into Fencing should I be before I use it?
A: The CoB macro is as follows:
Name this macro CoB or what ever suits you.
/ui action clearCombatQueue; - Used to clear all queued special attacks
/CenterofBeing; - Used to activate CoB
/pause 32; - Used so you don't constantly get "you are already focusing on that" message. This number comes from your CoB duration plus 1. Pause 32 for master fencer, Pause 37 for master fencer w/ master brawler.
/macro CoB; - Or what ever you named the macro.
Now as far as how far into fencer you should be before you use it, that is all preference. I would suggest not using this until you get at least a CoB Duration of 20. I also suggest not using this macro if you don't have mind buffs(well all buffed) or Vasarian Brandy/Muon, as it will continually run and run your HAM down. To stop the macro you can make a macro/or type /dump.
Well after much searching I found the toggle macro for CoB. It is as follows:
CoB Macro: Name CoB
/ui action clearCombatQueue;
Starting Macro for CoB: Name COBOn
/alias ToggleCoB /macro COBOff;
Stopping the CoB Macro: Name COBOff
/alias ToggleCoB /macro COBOn;
The Toggle Switch: Name Toggle
After assigning all these macros, type "/alias ToggleCoB /macro COBOn" and then drag the COB macro to your toolbar. The first time you press it it will turn your CoB loop on, the second time you press it it'll turn the CoB loop off.
Edited: Updated the Toggle macro so it is easier to understand as I worded it poorly.
