ProspectButton (based on MillButton) is a small addon that greatly simplifies the macro a jewecrafter uses to prospect semi-large quantities of ores. Instead of being limited by the macro's resources – character limit, what functions can be called – the new macro (instructions are further down) calls ProspectButton, which executes from the Addons.
- The ores must be: in stacks of 5; multiples of 5; or at least greater than or equal to 5. The addon cannot compact disparate same-type stacks. It will output the message "No more ore in stacks of 5 or more." to your chat window.
- Make certain that only the ores you want to prospect are in your bags. The addon is not capable of differentiating between prospecting and don't prospecting.
Download the addon and place it in your AddOns folder. The AddOns folder is located within the Interface folder of your World of Warcraft folder.
To give you an idea:
C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns.
If you are using the Curse client, then don't worry about this step.
Next, make certain you have ProspectButton enabled in the Addons list. Launch World of Warcraft. At the character selection screen, look at the bottom left for the AddOns button. Click the button. Scroll, if necessary, down the list until you see "ProspectButton". Click next to it to place a check mark (click again to remove the check mark, disabling ProspectButton, if you want to turn the addon off). Click "Okay".
Now log in to the character you prospecting with. Once in the game, type /macro . This shortcut command opens up your Macro page. NOTE: If you have multiple characters that you will use to prospecting ore, then stay in the General Macros tab. Otherwise, click <Character name> Specific Macros. Or not. Whichever you prefer or works best for you.
Choose an icon for the macro to use. Name it something appropriate to what you will use it for. Keep it short. In my case, I named it "prospect".
In the box labeled "Enter Macro Commands" type the following text:
Remember to click the Save button! Just in case. 🙂
Finally, click and drag the icon to any location on your action bars. Now if you want, you can "Put it on mousewheel and spin ahoy." I myself prefer to click.
I hope this is useful! If I wasn't clear on something, please let me know in the Comments section on Curse.com.
Last but never least – credit and thank you to Aliok for the addon MillButton because ProspectButton is based on it 😉
