    Macro via Autohotkey for Gear swap allowed?

    Hey Folks,

    I wanted to know if its allowed to swap gear and execute a skill with a Macro via Autohotkey?

    For Example:

    I want the Macro to be executed by pressing "2"
    The Macro then should swap in a 1H LI and a Offhand, execute Wild Attack and swap back to a 2H LI

    I know its possible to do that with simple Keybindings and I tried it several times, but it causes horrible lags when doing it this way. I tried Autohotkey and it works fine without any further lags.

    So before I use this Macro in general I want to know if this is allowed or not.

    I would say to swap gear, possibly, but to execute attacks, no. Macro's are a very gray area...

    if swapping becomes laggy then you need to restart the client.

    sounds legal, but shouldnt. neither swapping nor firing skills should be allowed with external programs, but firing skills with autohotkey obviously is allowed, as that kind of software is used by multiboxers everyday.

    By definition in most games using external software to gain an advantage over other players is considered cheating. However here I would only consider the firing of skills to be cheating. If you are too lazy to switch between gear manually then sure go ahead and shortcut it. Also keep in mind that lotro doesn't have any kind of mechanism to determine if you are using macros or not so it doesn't really matter.

    On the note of firing skills automatically I don't think anybody would notice or care to notice if you used it on landscape questing. It will only become an issue if you use it for PvP/raiding. But even for landscape why use it? It takes the fun out of playing the class and also makes you a poorer and less reactive player.

    I don't see how doing it manually and using AHK can cause a difference in lag?
    It's still the same key combo you're going through.
