  /cast 1, /pause 20
  /pause 30, /cast 2

would cast your spell in slot #1, wait 2 seconds, then cast the spell in slot #2 and wait 3 seconds. It doesn't matter if the pause comes before or after the always takes affect after the command is executed.

Timer /timer [tenths] Use this command in a macro to keep the button depressed for the length of the timer command.
Loot Macro
/target a_, /pause 1
This macro will loot most NPC corpses within range. This can be useful if the corpse is inside a wall or otherwise can't be targeted with the mouse.
Corpse Drag Helper
/corpse, /pause 2
/corpse, /pause 2
While /corpsedrag makes this less useful this macro can still help to manually drag a corpse. The /loc is to help your determine where you lost a corpse if you get out of range.
Buff Macro
/pause 3, /cast 2
/tt Going to blow your mind, %T!
/8 Casting buff on %T
/pause 3, /cast 2
Use this macro to setup easy buffing on the last person to give you a tell. Great for raids to help others keep track of who is buffing what. The two /cast lines are to catch any fizzles on the first cast. Change the chat channel (8), spell slot (2) and messages depending on your own setup./cast 1 (1 being minor healing)
Spell Practice
/cast 1, /pause 25
/cast 1, /pause 25
/cast 1, /pause 25
/cast 1, /pause 25
/cast 1, /pause 25

Casts the spell in your first slot 5 times in a row. You may need to adjust the pause time (25) depending on which spell your casting. This is great for practicing low level spells and you can use a similar method to catch fizzles (use a lower pause).

Range Pulling
/pause 5,/bandolier activate pull
/pause 5,/autofire on
/pause5,/autofire off
/bandolier activate normal
/g Spring the trap! %t %o %r are our enemies!
To use this macro create a bandolier set named pull with a ranged item and a set named normal with your regular melee weapons. Target a mob to attack and use this macro to pull.
Bard Fade
/g Fading Memories
/attack off
/alt activate 212
A helpful macro a Bard can use to quickly fade. You can use a similar macro for many other abilities.
Double Assist
/target [main assist]
/pause 1
/pause 1
Edit the macro with the name of your main group/raid assist or simply leave it blank to use your current target. When used you do a double-assist to see who the target of your main assist is attacking.
