    Default Please add %MT and other Referenced Variables

    Gonna start here so others can help flesh out this idea.

    some things that would rock are %MT (MT would be designated by the raid leader when the raid is formed). Would allow us to not have to redo MT macros so damn often. Also, %1 - %6 would be great for group spells also.

    Just some things I've been wishing for. Maybe others have more ideas.

    Default Re: Please add %MT and other Referenced Variables

    Random ideas:

    %MA is the next logical step. Or %CYCLENEXT for an incrementing target counter, like casting it 6 times will run through each member of your group.

    If there were a /setraidvariable or something, you wouldn't have to ask for specific variables, and in raid chat or on joining the raid it would show what you set the value to.

    Also I remember wishing group members were sorted alphabetically in the raid window, and that the order of members displayed in my group on the raid window matched my F1-F6 assignments. And if a whole group were dead, it would explicitly say "Group Dead" or something near their names.

    they just need to copy it over from vg - flags that can be set to various raidmembers by rl.

    Don't get me started on the need for a dual-targetting system ala Vanguard.

    /agree

    For example,
    /set_alias ma player_name
    This would set the %ma alias to player_name

    Then one could have a macro:
    Macro Name: Set MA
    Macro Command: /set_alias ma %t

    You would target the MA, press that macro, and set the MA.

    Now if you have an assist macro:
    Macro Name: Assist MA
    Macro Command: /assist %ma

    Now, your assist macro will always work so long as you've set the MA. Ideally, this setting should persist between logging.

    i like the idea of having the raid leader able to set the MT/MA/SA position (both default to raid leader upon forming the raid until they are reassigned), and then the % macros would always work off that for anyone in the raid... no further work involved from anyone else
