Updated 8/1/2020. See updates section for latest patch notes.

This macro repeatedly runs the Fear Begins at Home solo mission in Shard's Landing, which rewards Fragments of Legendary Alaran History that are used to evolve The Tears of Alaris augment. It averages around 100 fragments/day depending on how camped the areas are and how fast your character runs. The macro is designed to be used solo or with a healer merc.

The point of this macro is to condense a process that used to take several weeks, months or years down to a few days. It was designed and tested this as a Rogue and generated 263 fragments in a little under 3 days (with a lot of downtime to modify the macro). The augment requires a little under 300 fragments to max. Equipping the tear while running the mission speeds up the process.

How the Macro Works (Fear Begins at Home)
  1. Creates an INI file for your character (e.g., alaristablets_you.ini)
  2. If you don't have the mission it will run to the NPC and grab it
  3. It will re-invis (if you've defined an item/spell or are a Rogue) and run to the first objective
  4. When you reach the objective, it will start searching for valid targets near you
  5. When it finds a valid target, it will run to it, kill it, then search for the next
  6. If there are no valid targets near that objective, it will move to another location
  7. Repeats until 10/10 mobs are killed
  8. It will then attempt to invis and/or run back to the quest NPC
  9. Finally, it turns in, collects the reward, then repeats until you've collected the specified numb of tablets
Commands

/mac fragmentfarm
Starts the macro and runs the mission. It will create a default INI file for your character with recommended settings if one doesn't exist.

/mac fragmentfarm setup
Resets most INI settings to default. This is mostly used if you'd like to modify the INI file before starting the mission.

/mac fragmentfarm assist
Runs the macro in assist mode. Used for additional characters in your group/raid that want mission credit. Characters in this mode handle all of their solo steps individually, then hang out at the first objective for kill credit. They do not assist or heal the main character but will attack anything hitting them.

To start with everyone in sync:
  1. Make sure no one has the task
  2. Run /mac fragmentfarm assist on the alts first and wait for them to get in position (midway down the hall)
  3. Run /mac fragmentfarm on your main character
To ensure everyone gets the tablets they need, the primary character's maxTablets number under [Options] should be a little higher than everyone else's.

works well unless someone on your server is also running it and you are fighting over alarans......lol
Was running very well, Except as a bard it wasn't accepting the use of Selo's Song of Travel as Invis, Neither does it accept Shauri's Soronous Clouding. So as soon as invis was necessary; as soon as my faction with the underground caused guards to attack me, the macro caused me to crash, 3 times.

Should be resolved with the latest update, make sure you're running the latest version. My Bard is using "invisAbilityOrItem=Shauri's Sonorous Clouding" without any issues.
Worked well.. did it as a druid. Minor tweeks. Thank you very much.
Fantastic macro, took the pain out of doing one of the worst grinds in EQ history
