These commands are most usefull when creating macros


if you are main-tank in a group and want to announce the target you are about to pull, you
would use /g incoming %t !!

If you where currently targetting ‘Big Fat Orc’ your char would announce in group caht

“Incoming Big Fat Orc !!”

you could complicate this (although I dont know why you would want to)
lets assume you are targetting a male orc called ‘Big Fat Orc’ who has a pet called ‘fido’

/g incoming the %g %r , %t and %p pet, %m . Kill %o !!

would announce in group-chat

“Incoming the male orc , Big Fat Orc and his pet, Fido. Kill him!”
