    So, I'm trying to build a list of macros that could be useful, then I'll add them to the list of "Import Macros" so they will be available by default for every character.

    I want to do this mostly because people seems to have trouble making macros for what they want (or need) to do, or they just tend to make the overcomplicated :D

    For now the suggestions I got are:

    - Lumberjacking and make boards
    - Mining and smelt (with fire beetle)
    - Attack nearest enemy
    - All kill nearest enemy
    - Greater heal most damage friend/follower
    - Greater cure poisoned friend/follower
    - bandage nearest friend/follower
    - last spell -> current target

    I have a macro for mounting and dismounting my pets on my Tamer. This was life changing when I started using it.

    My other macro that I use very frequently is last spell, current target and set to repeat 10x. This is helpful for my Tamer to greater heal my pet. It’s also helpful for a group hunt if I’m spamming spells on a boss.

    All of my dexxers have a similar macro that costs Consecrate Weapon 10x with a pause in between.

    Would this eventually be available to classic client, I have no objection to EC and all its bonuses, would like the same additions to classic client so it would be the same across the board and available to everyone

    did they ever fix the bandage target macro for picking the bandages into the first aid belt? :D

    the mount dismount macro is old stuff, with my UI you can just press Z to do both :p

    the spam for consecrate weapon isn't a bit a waste of money since it's basically 100% success chance with a very low skill? :D

    It's quite possible it will never happen to CC, even the default UI is stuck at the stone age :D

    I need to stop procrastinating and download your UI.

    I have a delay on my CW cast so it casts it again when it wears off.

    ah ok, that makes sense :D
    even tho the duration changes with karma so I don't know if it's really worth making such macro...

    I'm not sure.
    I usually use CC, cause too long playing EC hurts my eyes.

    when my hubby got us new computers last Nov, I forgot to copy my files.
    And I couldn't remember how the old macro went.
    And I just keep forgetting to look for it... I found the one I used here on stratics.

    What I've been doing is just dropping the enhanced bandage into the F1 slot
    And when I first log in, I open the bag and use a bandage.
    but the last time I used it, I didn't do that & it automatically started using them.
    First Aid Belt doesn't have to be open in EC, but it does in CC.

    The macro I used was lot faster.
    something about bandage nearest follower
    and followed by cast spell, greater heal.

    I have these working now but they seem to get broke a lot and actions seem to change making them unusable.

    The lumberjacking and mining macros need to check for all accessible locations.

    I have a macro now, but it seems to only try to dig at one spot. Often there are 5 or 6 spots within reach, but the existing macros won't check those.

    Why don't just use target by resource combined with the new target ore and target fire beetle? :D

    That's what I do, target by resource. But it only digs one spot until empty. Manually I can target another 4 spots without moving, but target by resource doesn't even try to dig them.

    yeah I'm not sure where it points, but unfortunately there is no "target ground" or anything :(

    Nono, its the Enchanted Client and everyone that want to play UO in easymode.


    wtf is this? hey I want a macro that kills all people on screen meanwhile it heals all friendly players, then after its done it loots all enemies, if necessary recall to bank and back with loot or use a bos, after its done it can find an inn and log out.

    Cant believe devs accept this kind of bs, is there no end to how easy people want it. I say forget your macros and allow people to play the game instead.

    The classic client macro that I get the most use of is "Last object, Last Target".

    It's the Swiss Army Knife of macros, useful for everything from mining to fishing to vetting to cutting up the corpse you just opened for leather, and dozens of other uses.

    I'd like to have something similar in EC but I think the macro system in the EC is a lot more specific in commands, to the point where it might not be as useful.

    It works, kinda. it is very slow and you cannot hold it down and have it do things like mine or LJ as quickly, but those can be done with target by resource. the big thing that about this is the salty peters mining. it makes it a little more of a chore since it hasn't been added to teh target by resource macro.

    is there a macro or a way to put all the bods in the backpack into bulk order book? I sort a lot of bods between books, taking them out is easy but then putting them back is a dif story. Able to lock them and still use was a great idea, helped a lot, now just need a way to put them back in the book with one click. thank you for any advice

    you can use the organizers to do that, add bods to the organizer and set your bod book as default container

    @Thargor you should be able to do that with an Organizer Agent. Don't set the "Drop Container" and then click the "Add by type" and target the bod. Use the Agent and target the BoD book and it will put all the bods into the book.

    Forgive the noob, I dont think I can make it work. I added bods to organizer, renamed it , then when i click on on it asks me to target container, I do that and point to bod book but it tells me "this is not accessible container!". What i am doing wrong?

    I think I put a limitation to containers only with the last patch... I will remove it on the next patch so you can target other stuff too :D

    Ones I use frequently in addition to above:
    Attack current target,
    Honor, then attack current target,
    Bandage most damaged follower
    GHeal most damaged follower (I had trouble getting this one work in the past. May have been fixed since then)
    Escape (recall or SJ on a runebook).
    Put on and take off Stone Boots

    I am not sure what is the connection with weapon specials ( I use it for the spider webs), but I just had to adjust the timing after the the dressing nerf, and then it worked.

    Not a macro. But I love pushing "Make Max' in a crafting menu and just sitting there watching my crafter go to town with minimal clicking and I just have to wait til he or she runs out of suplies or breaks the tool. Sure beats the old days..... :D

    Consider adding normal heal and cure too. In dire circumstances, it can be advantageous to cast the quicker spells.

    This is a suggestion/question. is there a way to make a one click macro to automatically prep and fire the cannons under the new system? i want to set up a macro to fire my cannons a set number of times with one push of a button so i can minimize the use of ammo

    well the gump has only 2 buttons so it's quite simple, but it requires an action for that (better 2 1 for prep and 1 for fire...) :D

    From what I have seen since returning there must be a 300% Cannon SSI jewel out there that some folks are using. Some of the rates of fire I have seen at the beacons makes Garth look like a cannon noob. Heck I am pretty efficient on the cannons and see some that fire 3-4 shots to my 1. Something fishky there.

    Tyrath if you move your ship forward and back and turn it around you can use 4 cannons instead of just one, and the movement if put in a macro doesnt take long time to execute. Just double your firing rate by going 3 or maybe 4 times back and forward is an easy start.

    Yeah because I am total ship noob :) I am talking about them parked center of the beacon firing one cannon 3x - 4X faster that I can fire a single cannon. Not talking flipping and multi cannons....... And Cough I can use all 7 cannons on a Orc Ship using a couple of accounts, switching and macros....... if I want to put that much effort into it.

    I recall seeing something in the cannon loading dialog that you can have additional characters assist loading, i.e. if multipe people are charging the same cannon it goes faster. I never tried it though.

    I've tried it and honestly, it helps a tad... not a ton don't know if having a 3rd person help with the cannon makes it faster haven't tried that.

    Character Me starts cannon and tells pet to kill it or attacks dangerous mobs...

    Character Myself starts helping cannon and tells pet to kill it or whatever has spawned nearby that might kill other characters, waiting to hit fire while healing all other characters...

    Character I is an archer and just plucks away at the beacon... This one waits till pets have been on Beacons but will still take a good amount of damage, usually going EoO...

    Then Myself fires and instantly starts loading the cannon watching out of mobs that might kill other characters and killing them,

    Character Me then starts the assist while healing all other characters... again with being the active lookout... or sending pet to attack beacon...

    Rotate then between Me and Myself till beacon is down.

    This is the method I typically use.

    It does speed it up a bit but not that much looks like it goes about 5%- 7% faster having multiple characters on one cannon. That is just by me timing it several times using 2-3-4-10 character on one cannon and comparing to the fire rate with just one character per cannon. It appears there is zero increase after the second character. Not really worth the hassle if multi clienting. A living crew in PvP it could give a small edge to have 2 people on each cannon. I usually run 3 clients 2 on opposite forward cannons and the bow cannon and two working the 4 back cannons and just use fast switching and macros to fire.

    Whatever these folks or doing if they ran the same 4 characters firing the same cannons would still be firing their cannons 3 or 4 shots to my one per cannon. Don't really care in tram but in fel or on Siege whatever they are doing would dominate ship PvP. Thus far I have only seen 3 crews on beacons firing this fast.

    if you can make one for each so i can drop them in a macro and put a delay between them, it'd be good enough for me.
