    Howdy folks, first, I'm a returning player who is using the EC with Pinco's UI, all running on windows 7. I use a G13 game pad.

    Few difficulties I'm running into. HONOR macro. All legacy targeting is off. I cannot get any macro to auto target my target. I've used last target, with and without delays, no luck! Used current target, with and without delays, no luck. The icon for Honor does not have targeting avail on it when you right click it. I've changed and added all kinds of stuff to try to get it to work. So what am I doing wrong?

    Kinda tied into that...when I try to manually click on the honor target, by the time I get close enough to honor my target, a bolt goes flying from my crossbow. Under user settings, under options, always attack is unchecked. Am I missing a check or uncheck somewhere?

    Thanks folks,
    Mac

    If you get no response here try posting in the EC forum! I have a macro like what you want on my abc archer but it is late for me and I am logging off soon! If you post in the EC forum I will look mine up tomorrow and post it for you!

    I used a 'honor and attack nearest enemy' macro:
    1. Target nearest enemy
    2. Honor
    3. Wait to cursor
    4. Target current
    5. Attack current

    But now I prefer to select target manually (using Tab key). So I added a 'honor and attack current' macro. IIRC:
    1. Honor
    2. Wait to cursor
    3. Target current
    4. Attack current

    I hotkeyed both: 'V' and 'B' keys.

    There are two ways:

    1. Run. Press macro key. Don't stop before you get it honored. You don't shoot while you run.

    2. Get a bow. Use 'Equip last weapon' macro or just two 'Equip item' macroes.
    Switch to bow. Honor and attack an enemy. You don't shoot becouse you haven't arrows. Switch back to your xbow.
    The only mod you need on the bow is balanced - so you could use it when you need drink a potion as well.
