    I would love to line up my different slayer instruments so that I could easily click on the appropriate instrument before working a spawn or whatnot.

    Right now, if I have 16 Lutes and 1 Ogre Slayer Lute, the Hotbar seems to register this at 17 Lutes, no matter which one I drag to the Hotbar.

    It would be excellent if I could line up my slayers on the hotbar.

    I am using the non-legacy containers because I like the autoloot, but without any kind of sorting functionality and no stacking for instruments, it gets difficult to locate that one Slayer type in my bag.

    It's not only instruments but also pet balls, jewelry, etc..

    That's rather annoying - I hope they got this one on their list (rather at the top it too).

    Have you tried making a macro specific to each slayer instrument? It'll be a bit more work, but it may keep them separate.

    I did try with rings (teleport and invis) and nope, doesn't work. just uses the one you made the first macro with for all macros.

    Decors wrote up a nice little tutorial on how to create macros for specific items:

    Not the easiest thing to do, but it should be easy enough for most people to do until we get a use-item option instead of just the use-item-type from Mythic.

    I'll have to play with that... thanks for the info!

    But yes, I hope Mythic can help us with this in a future patch.
