Is anyone else's equip macros broken since the last patch?

/equip ammo "Iron Arrow"

no longer works for me and returns "You are unable to change your equipped items." or something like that for me =/

Logged on last night after dl the updates, equip macros still seemed to work fine.

I switch between my sleep arrows and scorpion arrows at the moment, same with poison arrows.

It doesn't work even if I just type in /equip ammo "Iron Arrow"...

So I had to manually reload every so often last night, that was annoying ><

They changed it so using /equip blah only works when you don't have that item currently equipped.

So having Iron Arrows in your ammo slot and equipping it won't refill it. SWITCHING from arrow type to arrow type will.

Sidenote : Not sure if this is an attempt to stop fishing bots, at least they make fish gain lvls over time if they aren't killed now. Good to see SE taking steps.


EDIT : "When equipping items using the /equip command, an item will no longer be removed if the command consists of the same piece currently equipped."

Yeah, noticed that last night...

So effectively you'll end up using up one stack of arrows...and when it's gone, then it will switch to the next stack for you. All the while it will say "you can't equip ...yadda yadda"

That's if you have your normal range attack macro set to equip arrows every time....

I can live with it this way. It means I won't end up with a bunch of partial stacks each night. I just have to live with the extra spam messages.

/range <t>

or

/shoot <t>

Nothing special, standard ranged attack macros. A lot of people use harder hitting, but more expensive, arrows for weaponskills, as such :

/equip ammo "Silver Arrows"
/ws "Barrage" <t>
/equip ammo "Iron Arrows"

This macro will equip you with Silver Arrows, shoot off Barrage, then put you back to iron arrows. Of course if you have Barrage you shouldn't be using iron arrows ;)

/equip ammo "Horn Arrow"
/wait 1
/ra <t> (or <bt>)
/p Taste the tip of my arrrrows you bastarrd <t>!! <call21>

----------
The above serves as a catch-all for both equipping my arrows of choice if needed & announcing my pulls to the group.

You can separate any one of these activities of course. Like if you wanted to keep your arrow equip separate or if you wanted to keep the party announcements separate to reduce spam. I found it a chore to manage both activities in a PT situation.

I do, however, hava a separate macro for each of my WSs, Barrage, Berserk, and Sharpshot. Each pre-ceded with a similar equip statement to use Silver Arrows for these activities. In this case, I have to keep an extra macro reserved separate just for "/ra <t>" so my normal macro doesn't swap my arrows back to Horn.

Yes, I think you mixed up Barrage from the other WSs like Piercing Arrow.

If you DO end up putting equip statements in your macro, there's no need to make the last line to swap your arrow back...it's redundant.

If you precede each of your macros with the first line being the "equip ammo" statement that should take care of it.

Also, make sure your arrows are typed out in *singular form". (e.g., Silver Arrow, Horn Arrow, etc.)
