I need a weapon switching Macro

    I was grouped this weekend with a tank that knew what he was doing. But each time I watched him charge into battle, he had one of about 3 different weapons out. Either 2h sword, or 1h and shield or a 2h Axe.

    As fast as a click, he would go between the different combinations. He said it was a macro but didn't explain further.

    Can anyone give me a clue as to how to write a macro to change weapons? I know it has to do with the slots in your main bag, but thats where it ends.

    Any help would be great.

    Would definately be nice. To bad WOW doesnt have something like UO assist.

    Get the ItemRack addon.
  4. I asked my guild as I've never used the macro function in WoW and several of our Warriors said they do not use it either because with every patch they have been breaking their macro language with changes making most everyone have to rewrite their macros.

    Ya go with Itemrack.

    Itemrack allows you to A) switch weapons onto a key binding and B) rotate through gear sets with a push of a button.

    For me, I have 4 different sets right now and I can rotate into each of them with one button.

    A) Tanking Gear
    B) FR gear
    C) NR Gear
    D) 2h DPS gear

    In high end instances where your trying to cram a run in as quickly as possible, the ability to rotate through gear prior to a pull with a single button click speeds up pulls at an extremely fast rate. As an OT I normaly rotate through Tanking and DPS gear depending on the pulls. As an MT I can rotate through Tanking, FR, or NR gear extremely fast, allowing us to basicaly chain pull mobs with breif pauses so I can switch out gear.
