As it doesn't happen all that often, I thought it would be worth posting that I completely agree with Nils' analysis of hotkey/macro-based combat: When the best strategy is to spam a few buttons as fast as possible without caring what those buttons are, there is something wrong with the combat system.
And just for the record: This isn't supposed to be an "anti Rift" post. The remark applies to WoW as well, even if WoW has slightly different macro restrictions. If carefully choosing the right button to press is a bad strategy, and quickly spamming keys in more or less the right order gives a better result, that just isn't a game for me.
