To ever improve the quality of life for adventurers, Square Enix has announced a new "Equipment Set" option for macros, to be implemented in the August version update of Final Fantasy XI. This feature will allow players to designate and equip multiple pieces of gear with a single command, thus reducing clutter for making macros. Twenty equipment sets will be available for registry when the content update is first implemented, with the possibility of that number increasing in the future!

[dev1223] Macro Editing Menu Addition: Equipment Sets
A new option to specify sets of equipment that may then be equipped via a single command is scheduled to be introduced with the August version update. With the introduction of this feature, players may change multiple pieces of equipment at once. As of the August update, it will be possible to register twenty different sets, with that number potentially increasing in future version updates.
- Editing Equipment Sets
Sets may be registered and edited from the "Edit Equip. Set" submenu under "Edit Macro" in the main menu.
Pieces of equipment can be registered to a set, or ones within a set can be edited, by body part via the same interface as the Equipment screen. It will also be possible to specify whether to remove a piece of equipment or keep it in the set.
Body part slots for which players wish to have equipment removed will be marked with an "X," while pieces to remain in a set will have no markings.
