Offhand Macro?Follow

#1 Oct 02 2010 at 9:07 AM Rating: Default
So, during the CE Pre-release, I made a macro to equip my main and offhand items for DoH & DoL to quickly switch to each class when needed. However, I could NEVER get the offhand item to equip. I used the text commands properly and quadruple checked capitalization, spelling, punctuation, etc. I even tried to make two SEPARATE macro' to equip my main, and one to equip my offhand...even tried a wait command in between of varying delays. No luck. I've never been able to figure out what I am possibly doing wrong and how to get it to work.

Since SE made the post regarding equip-issues yesterday (1 Oct, 2010) and didn't mention any problems with using a macro to equip an offhand item...this makes me wonder if I am in fact messing something up trying to do this.

So, are any of you having this problem? If not...can you please point me in the right direction in getting that macro to work? Thanks in advance. Below is how I originally set up the macro when it did not work:

1st try
/equip main "Weathered Hatchet"
/equip off "Bronze Scythe"


2nd try
/equip offhand "Bronze Scythe"

3rd, 4th, 5th, 6-20...etc. etc.

I tried many, many, many ways to get it to work. I either got the "You cannot equip that item" message or no message at all, just a failure to equip the item and the string of text contained in my macro scrolled across the screen.

Any help would be appreciated!

Haha...dang. Thanks. THAT...I didn't try.

Silly me, following the text command list from the Lodestone, Hehe

Here is what is posted @ the lodestone regarding the "/equip" command just so you don't think I am an idiot (>-^)


Command string: /equip [slot] [item name] -

Explaination: Equips an item to a specified slot. If an item name is omitted, the item currently equipped to that slot will be unequipped.

>>Gear Slots: main, off, thrown, bag, pouch, head, neck, l.ear, r.ear, body, shirt, hands, l.index, r.index, l.ring, r.ring, l.wrist r.wrist, waist, legs, garment, feet


Thanks again and /cheers!
