/whom is similar to the built-in command /who, but with several enhancements:
1. It can handle results of more than 30 players.
2. The player list is sorted and color coded, to make it easier to read. The player names are player links, so you can click them to initiate tells or access the command menu. There are extensive options to control the sorting.
3. There are options to list players in your zone, in scenarios available to you, in specific tier campaign zones, from your guild, from your alliance, from specific tiers, or to list everyone visible.
4. A table is presented showing player counts in each zone, and stats on tier and archetype breakdown for each zone. This is handy when you are trying to find where the action is. A summary is presented showing the population and archetype breakdown of each tier. Handy if you are trying to decide if you want to play an alt.
NOTE: due to the way the Warhammer handles search events, the searches /whom does to find its information will also show up in the chat window as if you were doing /who commands, and the add-on wizards tell me there is no way to suppress these. Those will be followed by /whom's results, also in the chat window, in whatever tabs that do not have System General filtered out. If you end up using /whom more than occasionally, you'll probably be a lot happier if you filter System General out of your normal chat tabs, and make a separate tab that just shows System General for viewing /whom results.
If you can't remember the options to /whom, try "/whom help". I've appended the help text below, so you can use this page as a reference if you wish.
Here are some examples:
/whom -w alliance
That will list who is online from your alliance, just showing the player list.
/whom t4 -a -r
That will list tier 4 (rank 32-40), sorting the player list by archetype (tank, mdps, rdps, healer), and within each archetype sorting by rank. The location and tier stats will be included, along with the player list. Toss in a -w if you only want the player list.
/whom sc -z -g
That will list the people in scenarios, sorting the list by zone, and within each zone sorting by guild. Only scenarios currently available in your scenario lobby are included.
Here is the in-game help text, for reference:
Usage: /whom [options]
If you give no options, default is to list all visible players
If you specify one or more of the five following options, then
only people of the given ranks will be included:
t1 show ranks 1-15
t2 show ranks 16-26
t3 show ranks 27-39
t4 show ranks 40
These options limit the search to the specified zones:
r1 tier 1 zones that contain RvR lakes
r2 tier 2 zones that conains RvR lakes
r3 tier 2 zones that conains RvR lakes
r4 tier 2 zones that conains RvR lakes
You can limit the search to your guild or your alliance with one of:
You can limit the search to your current zone with:
You can limit the search to the scenarios currently available to you with:
You can limit the seach to people flagged as advisors with:
You can ask for a detailed class breakdown by tier with:
You can specify the sort order of the player list with:
-c sort by career
-a sort by archetype
-r sort by rank
-z sort by zone
-g sort by guild
If you do not specify a sort option, players are sorted by name
If you specify one or more sort options, they are applied in
in order. For instance, -c -r would sort by career, and then
sort by rank within each career group, and then finally by
name when more than one person has the same career/rank
Here is an example:
/whom -g -a alliance sc
That would show you people in your allliance who are
currently in scenarios available to you, sorted by guild
By default, whom prints a player list, a locations list, and
statstics on archetypes and tiers. This can be changed:
-w (without -l) just show player list
-l (without -w) just show locations list
-w -l just show players list and locations list
No functional change. Just updating info to mark it is compatible
with game version 1.4.1.
Fix a couple errors in the zone lists for the r1 and r4 options.
Tiers changed to match the new level ranges in 1.4:
tier 1 1 - 15
tier 2 16 - 26
tier 3 27 - 39
tier 4 40
New options to list zones that are part of the RvR campaign:
r1 Shows the tier 1 zones
r2 Shows the tier 2 zones
r3 Shows the tier 3 zones
r4 Shows the tier 4 zones
For example, r4 would show Reikland, Praag, and Chaos wastes
from Empire/Chaos lands, Eataine, Dragonwake, and Caledor from
the Elf lands, and Kadrin Valley, Thunder Mountain, and Black Crag
from the Dwarf/Greenskin lands. Note the old fortress zones are not
Fix to work with game version 1.4 as is currently on the test
server. This version also works with 1.3.6 on the live server.
Names for careers are now obtained from one of the game's data
tables, instead of being hard coded. I think this *should* make
it so /whom can recognize career archetypes correctly in
non-English versions of the game. I have not been able to
test this, however.
Will now handle the case of 30+ characters of the same level
and class in the same zone, by searching by name if necessary
to avoid overflow
The game function to get the list of all zones omits the Necropolis,
which caused whom to overlook people in that zone. Whom now
explicitly adds Necropolis to the zone list.
Output goes to the "System General" channel now instead of the "Say"
channel, to match 1.3.5's move of /who output to there.
"/whom sc" will now only count and show players in your tier.
Before, it would count players of all ranks.
It is now a bit faster on searches that are going to find a
lot of players.
"/whom trinity" will show members of the Gaiscioch guilds.
This was actually in v2.0, but I didn't document it. This is
probably only interesting to people playing Order on Badlands.
