I'm sure this has been asked for before but i can't find the reference to it so I'm asking for myself.
Long ago before BC there was a mod by cosmosui that was basically a mini paperdoll slot for your main/offhand. I would much prefer this to the macros cause at times i use a 2h axe, other times 2 1h weapons and other times i use a 1h and sheild.
If someone has found a suitable replacement plz let me know if not plz give me a few pointers on how to get started on writing this mod.
ItemRack allows you to create buttons on your screen for any item slots you wish. Personally I use it for trinkets and relics (shaman ranged slot things), but it would work for mainhand/offhand as well. May be a bit overkill for what you want, though.
I use outfitter, and set up outfits. outfit 1 is my 2hander only (only it is checked in the setup), outfit 2 is 1h/shield, outfit3 is dual wield, I have assigned keybinds, [ ] \ for outfits 1-3, I can switch with a single keypress.
I agree, and I am already using autobar for auto-selection of various things like bandages, potions, etc. Plus it saves me quite a bit of screen space since it compresses all my "skill" buttons into a single popup button/menu. :)
