Items and Equipment, Lunar Guidance, Macros
With the release of the Burning Crusade expansion, several healer-oriented, on-use trinkets were added to the game. Unfortunately, using trinkets like these requires a lot of micromanagement, so much so that many players take less advantage of these items than they might otherwise. An addon like Gello’s Trinketmenu is helpful for cycling through multiple trinkets, but it can be difficult to remember to actually use your trinkets so that the addon can do its work. To ensure that you actually use your trinkets, you can add them to a macro:
/use 13 (13 = upper trinket; 14 = lower trinket)
/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear(); UIErrorsFrame:Show()
/cast [help] Lifebloom;
Note: The “/script UIErrorsFrame:Hide()” and “/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear(); UIErrorsFrame:Show()” lines above are optional but are useful for hiding the “item cannot be used” errors that automatically occur when the trinket you have equipped is on cooldown.
In the above example, trinket use is tied to the Lifebloom spell. I consider this spell ideal since you can easily opt to forego using it in any given fight should you need to save the trinket’s use for an upcoming boss fight. Using it normally, however, will result in your use of a trinket every time one is available. Once the fight is over, Trinketmenu will automatically cycle in the next in the series you have created. Adding a trinket call like this one to one of your heal buttons is an excellent way to get the most return for the inventory slots occupied by multiple trinkets.
