MillButton is a very small addon that greatly simplifies the macro a scribe uses to mill semi-large quantities of herbs. Instead of being limited by the macro's resources - character limit, what functions can be called - the new macro (instructions are further down) calls MillButton, which executes from the Addons.
- The herbs must be: in stacks of 5; multiples of 5; or at least greater than or equal to 5. The addon will not and cannot compact disparate same-type stacks. It will output the message "No more herbs in stacks of 5 or more." to your chat window.
- Make certain that only the herbs you want to mill are in your bags. The addon is not capable of differentiating between mill and don't-mill.
- If you are a scribe that does a super load of milling on a constant basis, i.e.: to create and sell lots of glyphs on the Auction House, I suggest using a different addon. MillButton is geared for scribes that perform milling in spurts.
- MillButton now mills Desecrated Herb again! Thank you Puxx and Ro.
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 MillButton 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 "MillButton". Click next to it to place a check mark (click again to remove the check mark, disabling MillButton, if you want to turn the addon off). Click "Okay".
Now log in to the character you mill 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 mill herbs, 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 "mill".
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 - as Ro put it - "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 Ro of Hyjal for creating and sharing this in the WoW Professions forum (link). (Plus, I'm really sorry that I missed giving you credit for so long, I honestly thought I'd written it in here!) I'm maintaining it on Curse so more people are aware of it and can benefit from it. Ro, you are awesome. <3
14 Sep 2013 - ToC bump and inclusion of readme.txt (just so there is off-line documentation of how to use the add-on). I also want to take this opportunity to inform users that MillButton is 100% within the rules laid down by Blizzard Entertainment for add-ons. There was incident in which a former user claimed it got his account banned and, on appeal, instead suspended. This had nothing to do with the add-on and everything to do with what the user was doing. If a player sits down and continuously mills hundreds and hundreds of herbs for hour or two then that is going to trigger an automated response by Blizzard's anti-botting system regardless of the add-on being used. I am sorry that the incident occurred but I am not responsible for its occurrence. On to a lighter note: I hope everyone is enjoying Patch 5.4 - especially all the new glyphs!
22 May 2013 - ToC bump. Everything is working (including Desecrated Herb). I hope everyone is enjoying the 5.3 patch!
17 Apr 2013 - Fixed MillButton so that it mills Desecrated Herb. Big thank you to Puxx and Ro! (Also, I noticed that I wrote the wrong year for the previous entry in the change log, so I fixed that, too.)
05 Mar 2013 - Everything still works, so I am bumping the TOC to 5.2. For those who may be interested, orchaceus posted a modified macro in the comments section of the addon page on Curse that allows you to turn autoloot on/off. ( http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/millbutton?comment=2 ) Also in the comments section is a Prospecting version of MillButton, if you are interested in that.
10 Dec 2012 - Bumping the TOC since Patch 5.1.0a made the addon show as out of date.
11 Nov 2012 - Discovered that Curseforge.com actually had accepted the addon way-back-when. So embarrassed. The only change is a bump to the TOC so that it should no longer shows as "out of date" even though it works fine. If you have recently experienced an error using MillButton, it is very likely that another addon is the actual culprit.
