  2. I tired making an EC macro for Trick or Treating... and could never get it to work beyond just a simple "say - Trick Or Treat" macro. Any suggestions, what am I doing wrong?

    My macro -
    Say - Trick or Treat
    Wait for Target
    Target Nearest Friendly (or Next, or any other did not work to automatically target an NPC)

    I've gone mad also with these type of macros, i think there is a conceptual (think it's the word) problem with the TARGET macros, target next/nearest blah blah and Cursor target current look close, but this is not the same, first group only change your current target, i mean, don't trigger the action, only change the target, if you want that the macro USE that target, need the last, the one Fink added.
    Devs should change this a little to evade missunderstanding.
    Did i explain myself?? ;)
    I do my best with my english, sorry

    I think, to even do a shorter macro, you dont need to open the corpse to get the essence (last part), only using the plant over corpses works, it goes straight to your backpack if you are lucky.

    Altough if you want to loot gold and so it's perfect, but most people kill the junk mobs of graveyards to get other rewards also.

    I think I understand. :)

    I feel there's something backward about targeting. More often than not I've found having the target selected before you need it works better than the more intuitive order of action first, target second. One thing I do like is, with most simple actions such as casting a spell on a current target, if there is no current target you get a target cursor.
     
  8. Ahh... this starts to make sense, thinking of it that way.
