    OK guys, this wont be pretty or flashy. It may be somewhere already but I have made a simple macro to swap weapons in combat. This macro depends on equipment types, ex: One-Handed Swords , Shields, Two-Handed Swords, Staves etc. You need to have your different enchants on different weapon types. So when you make your wardrobe sets, use simple names like INCIN for your incindiary ammunition on your gun and FLA for your frost laced ammunition on your bow and MAKE SURE TO IGNORE ALL SLOTS EXCEPT WEAPON on your wardrobes like the image so all your slots are red circle crossed out but your weapons, that way you dont have any issues while in combat trying to equip slots that cant be changed in combat.


    once you make your sets, use this macro and change the INCIN and other wardrobe names for yours and change the weapon types to yours.
    so in this macro, if a staff is equipped, it switches to my gun with incindiary, each press will switch to the next set.


    /equipset [equipped:Staves ]INCIN; [equipped:Gun] WC; [equipped:Bow] DWT EF; [One-Handed Swords] DS

    as long as you have a different weapon type for each enchant, this will work. you can rework this in many ways as your creativity sees fit.

    I will be working on a macro that identifies the item number so we can use the same weapon types with different enchants but this should help for those of you, like me, that have been using all the sets on different binds like this,

    and allow you to use one button to swap between them. Hope this helps, you can message me with any questions... FOR THE TWINKS!!!

    You can also use modifiers like shift/control to have at all in one button. May require a bit more to keep track of than automatically switching based on current weapon category - but thats usually not a huge deal. This will equip the wardrobe set "Set1" and if shift is pressed, it'll equip "Set2".

    Code:
    /equipset [mod:shift] Set2; Set1
    Or you can bake it into an existing action. You can only harpoon with a 2h, so this macro will use harpoon if you have the "2h" set equipped, otherwise will equip that set. Spam it to equip the set and then harpoon when the GCD is done.

    Code:
    #showtooltip Harpoon
    /equipset 2H
    /cast Harpoon
    AFAIK there is no way to use the equipped modifier to check for specific weapons. You can check item categories, whether an item slot has an item, or item subcategories.

    `equipped` and `worn` will do the same thing if you need to save on char space

    More details here: https://wowwiki.fandom.com/wiki/MACRO_equipset

    Its also probably important to note that swapping equipment sets triggers the GCD.

    yeah the "worn"is a better choice for sure, ty. I can use this for as many sets as I can fit into a macro, I currently use it for 4 sets, it is especially useful for scrubs like me that are not especially handy with the keyboard modifiers, I can barely handle the ones I have. I reworked it with the worn. What I like is, it is all in one button with no modifiers, because my skill with too many buttons turns into a piano slide,...you know this if you have ever watched my stream lol.
    I know there are some awesome players with android like reactions and precise keypresses, but this is perfect for someone that is more mashy and clunky like me.
    I use my power auras to hear and see when i get my procs that can be tracked so it is easier for me to know when to swap.
    If you set it for your slowest proc first and fastest proc last, you can get 3 procs from a good rotation.
    I use it on my surv, even with the gcds, and it does the trick. It swaps between my bow with woodchuckers, which procs slow, to my gun with Incendiary, then to my staff with dancing Steel which procs fast for my harpoon on the snare with a wing clip into a disengage, then to my dual talwars with ele force to dot spread from a distance. It is not safe to stay in too deep for long without solid heals pocketing ya so I do this one when im pugging alot.
    Ty for your contributions, here is my reworking

    /equipset [worn:bows] INCIN ; [worn:Gun] DS; [worn:staves] DWT EF; [worn:One-Handed Swords] WC

    one button, 4 wardrobe set swaps, my kinda heaven <3

    It is for specific rotations for sure but I have been looking for something that does more than one swap for a long time without having to use modifiers. I am still a nub with macros but, for other nubs like me, I hope this helps <3 suffer well brothers and sisters :) Somfas
