I know others worked it out too, but I'll take the love, thanks :P

My initial iteration was realising after looting a corpse I would stand, even when bind wounding, so I would keep a corpse next to me while soloing to force me to stand while bandaging in a fight... later I realised I could just type /stand instead and macro was born [You must be logged in to view images.

By the way a quick way to max your BW skill is go to lavastorm by the gypsy merchant camp. There is a merchant there that sells bandages and just dip in and out of the lava.
Just don't do this while watching TV. I definitely didn't die on my rogue in lavastorm mountains at level 53. *cough*

Combat bind wound shouldn't have been possible until at *least* Kunark, because the / commands for macros weren't in the client. There was no /sit, /doability, /pause etc.

First mention I see of them is in the September 28, 2000 patch notes. It was around this time that they started enabling more client automation.

(I know because I was the guy who suggested to the dev coding this stuff, while beta testing Velious as a Guide, that we should be able to do %t for target macros when pulling mobs etc. He said it was a good idea and he'd implement it. And he did [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.])

To be fair, it's not really a small edge. Once you get BW to like 100 or so its like having a fungi, or at least an iksar regen bp

If that also spawned %O and %P and %S (objective, possessive, subjective pronouns) I'd like to personally thank you.

I had ~50 pull message macros on Live and 13 here on P99 (they're thematic so I make them as I think them up) that are all possible due to that.

Raids & XP groups are more fun when you don't always see the same pull message.

I think the dev's name was Rowyl but my memory is fuzzy now.

Yeah all that stuff went in around the same time. They tried it as @t first which was cumbersome, then switched it to %t some time after I chatted with him. We were both C programmers so it made a lot more sense to everyone I think to use that format.

I suppose I can only take partial credit on that basis... [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

/pause 2, /target "yourname"
/pause 2, /doability 1 (note: this is the second tab on actions window)
/pause 2, /stand
/pause 2, /target a (see note below)
/attack on

*if you’re fighting say “a hill giant” then the a works on line 3 of the macro. Otherwise you have to change it depending on what you’re fighting

Same when I saw it.

I actually cut my CBW macro off at the stand portion. I've had too many issues with /target a to make an automatic reestablishment of attacking go well. I just manually retarget and re-auto attack.

It changes per level but about 40 hp/tick when you're getting close to 60.

It is way better than a fungi while fighting if you have a corner to scoot your butt into or have a shaman. With regen and slow, a shaman should never have to heal a monk or warrior while exping.
