Quote from latest interview:
" To give one example, in the first Darkfall, the skills that where macroed quite a lot where movement skills like run sprint and swim because of the benefits they provided to relevant passive skills. In Unholy Wars this will not be the case as movement skills can no longer be leveled up."
Ok first of all... you didn't 'macro' sprint or swim you just hit numlock and swam into a wall. That is not a macro. You didn't do it to level up swimming, you did it to raise stats. The guy didn't mention if these activities will have an impact on stats - if they do then expect to see afk swimmers. If they don't then expect to see afk melee macros to raise stats, or whatever function raises stats.
He also mentioned heal self and transfers are in, and I assume some buffs are in - all of these spells are easily macroed.
The macro question was totally dodged and the obvious answer is that, yes, people will macro their spells and stats just like in DF1.
Be prepared to get your macro on or fall behind.
