Equipset Macro not working in combat


85 Worgen Warrior
Having a macro that uses a equipset can't be used in combat. It does work out of combat just not in combat. Here is an example of an equipset macro:

#showtooltip Shield Wall
/equipset 1HPvP
/cast Shield Wall

Was this intended or not?

In combat, changing gear causes a GCD, therefore any use of an Equipset macro, with EQS before the spell, will require two presses.

Yes I'm aware that it takes 2 key presses for it to work but when you press it like 20 times it should of worked XD. Also I have had this macro for a long time so I know it worked before in combat.

bump for this issue, macro I had for equipset worked fine before 4.2. Now it can't be used in combat, works just fine outside of combat.

/equipset [nomod] pvp
/equipset [mod:alt] pvpshield

As if it wasn't hard enough to kill mages before.....

Blizzard changed it so that addons cannot change your gear when in combat using the equipment manager. iirc, they forgot to add /equipset to the secure list of commands and when you use it now it taints your UI and fails. I would think that this would be in the next hotfix.

I believe anything related to the UI requires an actual patch. Don't quote me on it, though.

This is a major problem on my fury warrior. I have weapon swaps macroed into my stances.

Using /equipslot 16 & 17 lines: if I switch to Defensive for shield/1h then back to Berserker for dual-wield it only equips one of my dps weapons - in the mainhand, leaves my shield in the offhand. I'm guessing this is because my dps weapons are two of the same item. If they have different names its not a problem.

With two identical weapons I have to use an /equipset line instead. Until yesterday this worked perfectly (aside from the annoying "cha-ching" noise). Now it only works if I'm out of combat.

Edit: Just tested it with my one and only addon turned off - it works fine with the Blizzard UI, but not with Bartender4.

It's still an insecure slash command in build 14333. :(

While Blizzard visits this issue, it would be a good time to allow /equip and /equipslot to handle two weapons of the same name. Give priority to weapons found in containers instead of inventory/worn, lock container slots already in the process of an equip, skip locked container slots, voila.

With addons unable to participate in weapon swaps in combat, we really need Blizzard to fix this long-standing bug.

Yah.. it sucks, but at least you can work around it by using /equip or /equipslot like:
/equip Vicious Gladiator's Slicer
/equip Vicious Gladiator's Shield
It's odd because you can change weapons in combat using the equipment manager, just not the /equipset macro.... boggle

Really annoying for fury warriors that use 2 of the same name weapon.
