SpellCast and Med. RingFollow

I've been toying with XML all night trying to figure out how to get this to work. No matter what I've done, SpellCast still doesn't equip the ring when my HP is less than 76% and my TP less than 100 (when I hit a cure macro, of course). I'm thinking I'm missing something somehow.

I have:

<if HPPLT="76">
<equip when="midcast">
<lring>Medicine Ring</lring>
</equip>

Do I have the command wrong? I'm not aware of anything else that will work.

Any help is appreciated.

If you're using spellcast then there are a few things you can do.

A good place to start, and verify what works with your version, is:
SpellCast Variables (windower.net)

%HPP should work but might require the "advanced" method

Here's an example I found from a quick google:
someone's BRD or BLM xml wrote:
<if Advanced='%HPP &lt; 76'>

but there are lots of different versions of spellcast, so I dunno if that will work for all of them. (see link above)

----

But you don't need spellcast to fulltime Medicine Ring (speaking from my own spellcastless experience^^). It just makes it way easier.

I know you didn't ask for fulltime, but if you're using spellcast, it's just too easy...

Here's an example specific to you, Aaralyn!*
(it's kind of a crude/quick tossing gear together kinda thing, I'm sure you can optimize beyond this)

Standing gear: 856hp (so after-cast, also) 
Templar   / Numinous / _________ / Hedgehog 
Electrum  / Beak     / Antivenom / Loquac. 
Noble's   / Zenith   / Serket    / Ether 
Blue Cape / Jungle   / Blessed   / Blessed 
 
Curing gear: 1139hp (mid-cast) 
Templar   / Numinous / _________ / Hedgehog 
W.Turban  / Promise  / Insomnia  / Loquac. 
Noble's   / Cobra    / Tamas     / Medicine 
Intensify / Jungle   / Vendor's  / Blessed

This is 75.15% which is perfect, it keeps you white but activates the ring! When the spell is done, it would snap you back to 856/856hp, 100% so there's no issue with auto-regen or other people curing you.

This method (raising HP mid-cast) also makes it easy to pre-charge a Solace Holy, or if you interrupt/prevent your "aftercast" (open equip or chat, for example) then you're ready for a 1139 Devotion!** (284 instead of 214, so +70mp)

*I hope my math is right, and I dunno if you have all this gear, but I did some homework and it looks like you do. The pieces you might not have, should be pretty cheap.

**Some people call self-cure-devo a waste; others enjoy inflating the MP given to others -- I don't care which of these the reader is, but it's there if you want it :)

I haven't used it myself, but I know Aikar is very proud of his WHM xml. It's pretty advanced, but takes full advantage of convert gear and Medicine Ring. Perhaps you could take some tips from it.

Thank you very much for replying. :)

Turns out I had some command errors conflicting with each other, as well as another error that was PM'd.


Thanks again~
