Grey-Trash Selling Macro

I realized this long, Columbus Day weekend (yeah, I got the day off) that one of the macros that I've used for the longest time, and quite frankly, I can't live without I hadn't posted. Sure, there's plenty of mods you can use to do the same thing, but it's also as simple as creating a macro and using that button.

So, what am I describing? Everybody gets them. Some of them, like the [The Stoppable Force] are even worth over 2 gold! So, yes... I'm talking about the grey, poor quality items. If you don't save them, if you don't pick them up, you're losing out on a good chunk of change. But they can be a pain to search through your bags to find. So, what does one do? Add the following macro:
/script for bag = 0,4,1 do for slot = 1, GetContainerNumSlots(bag), 1 do local name = GetContainerItemLink(bag,slot); if name and string.find(name,"ff9d9d9d") then DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("Selling "..name); UseContainerItem(bag,slot) end; end; end
Drag the macro to an open action button. And then every time you go to a vendor, click this baby, and see all that trash sold in record time, and without you having to search for it. Giving credit where credit is due, this came from the Mage forums on all their macros.

That is seriously a useful macro. I'm not one for macros so I was a little dubious entering it in. It's great! Saves me time, gets me money, leaves me more organized, I could do late nite TV commercials for it.

The only problem I've ever had with it was last nite when I quickly tried to vendor grey items and forgot to look at the vendor's wares first . . . my dilapidated cloth hat disappeared and i could only vendor the rest of my trash when i did it right.

I finally discovered just as we were starting Maulgar that I'd been wearing a dilapidated cloth hat for the first 30 mins of the instance and not my epic headgear lol . . .

This is the best macro for the game.  Thanks I've used this since I got the game 2 years ago!
