Trinket Macros

I’m pretty sure I’ve been living under a rock.. but yesterday I -finally- figured this out.

I have several outfits that change depending on the circumstances (Outfitter does the changing). Each outfit has its own trinkets. Some of these trinkets have “Use:…” abilities and I need them to show up to remind me to use them. If I don’t see the trinket I forget to use the trinket.

Enter button macros:

#show 13
#showtooltip 13
/use 13

#show 14
#showtooltip 14
/use 14

Place each of these in a button bar. They will always show whatever trinket is in the top slot (13) or the bottom slot(14).
Mousing over each button will show the tooltip for that trinket.. sort of.. it actually seems to try and do the comparison I have setup with EquipCompare.. but at least it makes it so I can read the tooltip to figure out if I really want to trigger this trinket.
Clicking the button will trigger the “Use:…” ability of that trinket.

No matter what I’m doing.. those two buttons will always show trinket 1 and trinket 2. Happy-ness from macros.

I’m pretty sure I’ll need to setup similar macros for other armor with “Use:… ” abilities.
