Equipment Manager

Selecting a gear set

The Equipment Manager is a tab within the paper doll that allows switching between sets of equipment.

The player can create and alter multiple sets, and switch between them at will. Each set can include a specific item for each slot, or can choose to ignore that slot. Players can also choose titles and icons for their sets. Once created, gear set icons can be added to hotkeys to enable access without opening the Equipment Manager itself.


  • The equipment manager can take items directly from the bank to the selected slot on a character, but this facility is only available when the bank inventory is open; simply standing in the bank does not work.

Example macros

Let's assume Prot is your primary spec and Ret is your secondary and you want to swap gear at the same time you swap specs, then your macro would be:

For Prot:

/equipset Prot
/usetalents 1

For Ret:

/equipset Ret
/usetalents 2

One button equipment & talent changer:

#show [spec:1] Retribution Aura; [spec:2] Devotion Aura 
/equipset [spec:1] Ret; [spec:2] Prot
/usetalents [spec:1] 2; [spec:2] 1

In this situation, the game will equip the Retribution gear then activate the Retribution build when the Protection build is active. It will alternatively equip the Protection gear then activate the Protection build when the Retribution build is active.

Again, on the /equipset macro, you have to use the exact name that you saved your gear as, and it is case-sensitive. (Modified from [1].)

Related addons

This feature has similar functionality, and is probably largely based on the popular auto-armor-equipping addons such as ItemRack and Outfitter.
