    windower macros - /wait???

    this is my macro for Rampage

    input /equip waist "Warwolf Belt";
    input /equip ring1 "Flame Ring";
    input /equip ring2 "Triumph Ring";
    input /equip head "Hecatomb Cap";
    input /equip feet "Fighter's Calliage";
    input /equip ear1 "Merman's Earring";
    input /equip ear2 "Minuet Earring";
    input /equip ammo "Bomb Core";
    input /equip body "Haubergeon";
    input /equip legs "Warrior's Cuisses";
    input /equip legs "Valor Breeches";
    input /equip back "Forager's Mantle";
    input /equip neck "Peacock Charm";
    input /equip hands "Enkelados's Brc.";
    input /wait 2;
    input /wait 2; <-- added this today to check to see if /wait worked
    input /ws "Rampage" <t>;
    input /echo [[Rampage]];

    and this is my TP gain gear

    input /equip waist "Life Belt";
    input /equip ring1 "Woodsman Ring";
    input /equip ring2 "Sniper's Ring";
    input /equip head "Walahra Turban";
    input /equip feet "Fighter's Calligae";
    input /equip ear1 "Suppanomimi";
    input /equip ear2 "Minuet Earring";
    input /equip ammo "Bomb Core";
    input /equip body "Haubergeon";
    input /equip legs "Warrior's Cuisses";
    input /equip back "Shadow Mantle";
    input /equip neck "Peacock Charm";
    input /equip hands "Dusk Gloves +1";
    input /echo [[Post WS macro]];


    i've always wondered if my STR gear is 'actually' being checked when i do my WS because it just seems that i should be doing more then 700~DMG on VT mobs with zerk agg and all my merits... sometimes i blast out 1400-1700 but i cant get a solid average of 1200+ (where i want/should be)

    im elvaan, lvl3 str, + everything else in sig (and more) i should consistently be hitting over 1100 on average... is there anything wrong with my /wait 2 line in the macro's? should i use /pause(does this exist?) or any other syntax???

    help me out!

    thanks

    PS used search function but couldnt find anything that actually gave me info to my question

    I've always had errors with using /wait within Windower macros. What I ended up doing, was use the Windower script to swap the equip, and then use the normal FF macro area to add the /wait and /ws portion.

    You could check this pretty easily using another WS on lvl 0 mobs. I don't use windower macros so I'm not sure about the /wait.

    "input /wait xx;" will not work.

    you need to do this:

    input /equip body "blah";wait x;input /equip legs "blah2";

    You're a melee, you got a billion free spaces for macros. Just use a different one for abilities.

    You beat me to it, but it would be nice to have one macro do all.

    waits work fine for windower macros, you can get by using /wait .5 or /wait 1 and it will figure in, as far as your ws numbers, check your tp, I noticed not alot of acc for ws, and with any multi hit ws, if you don't have enough acc, you won't get high numbers. At least that is the only thing I see with your setup, I know for Asuran Fists I stopped leaning towards so much +str on ws where I was lowering my acc gear too much and went back to keeping 35 acc for ws instead of 20 and I noticed alot more consistent ws numbers (I get 15 to 16 tp returns now instead of alot of 10s like I would before), so yeah, check your tp returns, if you are getting alot of low tp returns that would explain your low numbers.

    2 should be fine. You should be able to just swap and ws afterward without waiting, theoretically.

    Also, I'd personally use windower's "wait 2;" instead of using FFXI's "/wait 2", but that's just preference.

    If you want to get fancy, then swap equip, ws, then wait a few secs (5 if you want to see skillchain damage) and swap back all in one long macro.

    Edit: and yeah, othellojr's right about the damage. on multihits you might not want to remove all your acc if the mob is kinda evasive.

    It would be even nicer if they put more lines in games macros.

    being a melee doesnt have anything to do with it...

    i want to have at max 2 macros per WS, 1 to change gear to STR then do the WS and one to change back to ACC gear

    if i wanted to do that with 6line in game macro's i would have 5 macros over 2

    the line is pause

    input /equip Neck "Soil Gorget";
    input /equip Head "Optical Hat";
    input /equip Ring1 "Flame Ring";
    input /equip Ring2 "Rajas Ring";
    input /equip Hands "Alkyoneus's Brc.";
    input /equip Legs "Shura Haidate";
    input /equip Body "Kirin's Osode";
    input /ws "Asuran Fists" <t>;
    pause 4;
    input /equip Neck "Peacock Charm";
    input /equip Head "Walahra Turban";
    input /equip Ring1 "Sniper's Ring +1";
    input /equip Hands "Ochiudo's Kote";
    input /equip Body "Shura Togi";
    input /equip Ring2 "Sniper's Ring +1";
    input /equip Legs "Byakko's Haidate"

    im elvaan, lvl3 str, + everything else in sig (and more) i should consistently be hitting over 1100 on average...
    lol, averaging over 1100 aint happening without double minuets and a hedgehog pie dude. With bards using a single march (which does nothing for your WS obviously) and people often opting for sushi your average on WS will drop hard regardless of what you do personally.
