    Need help on drg/mage macro

    Hi, I know the concept of drg/whm or drg/blu and have been using it for a long time. What troubles me is the macro, that lately I have been seeing inconsistent healing breath number. As usual, if my macro works the way it should, which happens about 50% of the time, my wyvern would do a 430+ healing breath, 622 with full exp and full tp without deep breathing. However, half the time, especially in place like campaign, I will see my HB heal for only 360-390ish. I wonder which part of the macro is causing that.

    I am currently using windower, and my macro goes as the follow for drg/whm and drg/blu:

    /ma "Foot Kick" <t> or /ma "Dia" <t>
    /console exec Drg solo1.txt
    /wait 4
    /console exec Drg solo.txt

    "Drg Solo1.txt" =
    input /equip head "Drachen Armet";
    input /equip legs "Drn. Brais +1";
    input /equip neck "Chanoix's Gorget";
    input /equip body "Wyvern Mail";
    input /equip hands "Ostreger Mitts";
    input /equip feet "Homam Coscailas";
    input /equip back "Gigant Mantle";
    input /equip ring2 "Bomb Queen Ring";
    input /equip waist "Ocean Sash";
    wait 1;
    input /equip head "Wyrm Armet";

    "Drg Solo.txt" =
    input /equip head "Askar Zucchetto";
    input /equip neck "Chivalrous Chain";
    input /equip body "Homam Corazza";
    input /equip hands "Homam Manopolas";
    input /equip waist "Swift Belt";
    input /equip legs "Homam Cosciales";
    input /equip feet "Homam Gambieras";
    input /equip back "Forager's Mantle";
    input /equip ring1 "Rajas Ring";
    input /equip ring2 "Ulthalam's Ring";
    input /equip ear1 "Brutal Earring";
    input /equip ear2 "Ethereal Earring";
    input /equip ammo "Smart Grenade";

    What am I doing wrong? Drn. Brais +1 not kicked in or AF2 helm? or should I change equip then cast magic? Is wait 4 ok or too long? Thank you.

    I'm guessing it's the wait 1 before Wyrm Helm.

    I dont use windower and my macro for Footkick or other fast casting spells is always /wait 2. I also equip Drachen Armet first before the spell.

    Also read somewhere that the Drachen Brais +1 can take some time for the game to compute the hp modification affecting Healing Breath so maybe thats one of the causes.

    I don't know how windower macros work but drachen armet needs to be put on before the spell goes off if you want breath to trigger at 50%+. Also there's usually a pretty big bit of lag after you put on wyvern hp gear and when the hp actually goes up(like 4 or 5 seconds). I usually put on my wyvern hp gear one or two hits before I'm going to hit my threshold to activate breath to make sure the potency is added in.

    Due to the lag period based on wyvern HP adjustments, here's the macro I've always used, that has proven effective:

    Within the DRG_Solo_1.txt, delay should be 2

    /console exec DRG_Solo_1.txt
    /ma "Foot Kick" <t>
    /wait 5 or /wait 6
    /console exec DRG_Solo.txt

    Keep in mind, the wait in the DRG_Solo_1 will not add additional wait above what is already in the FFXI macro, so it appears to be very high.

    Thank you. I have no problem triggering HB at 50% HP, after further testing, the one that goes low are usually 380-390 ish, and I am guessing that it is Drn. Brais +1 that is effecting it. 380 x 1.15 = 437, which is about right. I am going to try the /wait 2 adjustment in lag area to see if it can fix it.
