How To Use

To use this macro, you must have these files in your macros directory: DRShmbot.mac

To start the macro, type: /mac DRShmbot.mac __

Tank Name and Master Name are optional. They are NOT required but must be set in the INI for the bot to function correctly if not provided.

The macro will create an INI file for you to customize called, dR_ToonsName.ini, in your macro directory. (Ex. dR_Bobshaman.ini)

After the INI file is created, it will end the macro and you MUST edit the new INI file. Then you can restart the macro(You will not need to edit it after it has been set once unless you need to change a setting.

This macro DOES NOT REQUIRE ANY PLUGIN but it will use MQ2EQBC if you want it to. However, there is no support for it on this macro at this time.

Commands and Aliases

None at this time.

Dynamic Mana

More to be posted later.

Spell Gem Optimization

Add to your macro before main loop:

/declare numGem int outer
/declare OWgem int outer
/call GemOpt

Subs for use within macro

/call GemMem ${SpellGem} ${SpellName} ${SpellGemState} ${MOWState}

ex. /call GemMem ${NukeGem} ${Nuke} ${NukeStatus} TRUE
/call GemMem 4 "Ice Spear of Solist" TRUE FALSE
/call GemMem 0 "Complete Healing" FALSE ${CHAlwaysOW}
/call GemMem 9 "Ancient: Hallowed Light" ${KeepAH} ${AHOverWrite}

  • SpellNameHere must be a string, SpellGemHere must be a integer, SpellGemState must be TRUE/FALSE
  • FALSE means that the spell will stay until a spell is memmed over top of it within the macro by the user or

    manually deleted.

  • TRUE flags the gem as switchable. Spells will be memmed to the least used switchable slot

  • SpellGemHere
  • when it equals 0, means that the sub will memorize into the first switchable gem it finds that is available.
  • If no gems are available, it finds the switchable gem that has not been cast in the longest time
  • Each timer for each switchable gem is set to a default of five minutes. Lowest timer will be overwritten, or

    first in list if multiple timers are at 0 * MOWState is just a TRUE/FALSE constant that tells the sub to overwrite it if no gems can be switched and you don't

want to use the OWgem

IF you want the timer function to work correctly, you must add this line directly after casts in your macro

/if (${Macro.Return.Equal[CAST_SUCCESS]}) /call GemTimer ${Me.Gem[<${SpellThatWasCast}>]}

/call GemEdit ${SpellName - OR - SpellGem}

ex. /if (${SpGem[1,2]}) /call GemEdit 1
/call GemEdit "Complete Healing"
/call GemEdit ${QuickHeal}
/if (${Nuke.Equal[${SpGem[${NukeGem},1]}]}) /call GemEdit ${NukeGem}

  • This sub is used to switch states of memorized spells or spell gems. IF the spell name isnt found, no change will

occur. This state will be changed next time a gem will be memorized, therefore no need to mindlessly call GemFind
