About Coconuts

Coconuts adds a button to your interface that smartly decides a random mount for you. If you're in Outland and have a flying mount, it will pick it! Also lets you dismount. Easy switching to a slower mount or to a ground mount if you need to.

To pick your next slowest mount, hold down (default) Shift and click the button. To pick your ground mount while in an area which allows flying and you have a flying mount, hold down (default) Alt. To dismount while on a flying mount, hold down Shift, Alt, or Ctrl. To use Holly on your mount if you have any, while mounted hold down (default) Ctrl.

The button action can also be bound to a key using WoW's key interface or by entering /kb into the chat then clicking the button and pressing the key you want bound to it.

Coconut also understands travel forms, including flying and aquatic!

Usage & Commands

The chat command is /coconuts or /ccn. Options can also be set by using WoW's Interface->Addons tab.

Options are:

  • gui: Opens the GUI configurator.
  • options favorFlying: Toggles if flying mounts should be favored if in an area that allows them (default: yes).
  • options favorPassenger: Toggles if passenger mounts should be favored (default: yes).
  • options showModifierItems: Toggles if items that modify mounts (such as Fresh Holly) should be selected when holding Ctrl while mounted (default: yes).
  • options suggestOnlySoulbound: Toggles if only mounts that are soulbound to you are to be suggested for use (default: yes).
  • options list: List all of your mounts.
  • options refresh: Forces Coconuts to rescan for mounts in your bags.

Some options can only be set by using WoW's Interface->Addons tab. These include setting the favor flying, show modifier items, show next slowest mount, and favor passenger modifer key (Ctrl, Alt, or Shift), favorite mounts and the zone favorite.

Coconuts supports ButtonFacade, use /bf to configure the skin and color settings for the button if you have it installed.

Coconuts supports LibKeyBound, use /kb to enter key binding mode.

Coconuts's button will stick to other frames that support LibStickyFrames.

Coconuts outputs the current item it will use using LibDataBroker-1.1. Note that clicking on the item in a Broker addon will not activate the item. You must have Coconuts bound to a key to use it in a Broker addon and hide its own button.

    This is a good idea. I'll see about making it automatically picking travel forms when moving.

    Hello, just wanted to say, since last update, the button registers me as having 'You have no mounts.' With a sad polar bear icon, even after refreshing mount list. This is quite obviously an error, being that I have 142 mounts. lol Tried reinstalling a few times. Each time it works...kinda for a very little amount of time before it does the same thing again. And I said 'kinda' 'cuz it only gives me 1 mount option, over and over. Hoping to see an update soon fixing this. Love this addon a lot, being that it's hard to choose sometimes between all my mounts. xD lol

    Thanks for the report. I have been working on this. It sounds like the error I have been resolving related to the magic broom but I have also been chasing another I just noticed.

    As to the now deleted comment, Coconuts doesn't require a list that needs updating anymore, outside of knowing what mounts support passengers and item mounts.

    I just got the same issue. There will be a fix soon! Thanks for the kind words about our addon :)


    Edited for grammar >.< I type too quick.

    some how all passanger mounts have been classified as 0% speed passanger mounts, and addon will no long pick them for use.
  • #57
    Any idea when support for the Winged Guardian will be added? It won't show up for me. Even with a fresh install and using the 'refresh mount list" button.
  • #56
    any way to add the worgen running wild?
  • #54
    I've discovered 2 issues. Not sure if they're fixable.
    1. Dire Maul area around old arena. If you are on the grass coconuts only picks land mounts even though you can fly. If you are on any of the hard surfaces coconuts will correctly choose a flying mount.
    2. Isle of Quel'Danos or where Magister's Terrace is. You apparently cannot fly there but coconuts is trying to pick a flying mount.

    Minor stuff to be sure. Love the mod.
  • #55
    I don't know about Dire Maul, but 3.0.234 still has the problem with Quel'Danos as I was riding around out there last night.
  • #52
    I can't get the travel form to show up in my button unless I'm in combat. I have the box checked for travel form instead of slower mount and I have the slower mount set to shift. But when I hit shift, the button just disappears. It doesn't show travel form OR my slower mount.
  • #51
    I just picked up this addon and it's incredible. I do get stuck when it wants to mount me on a AQ tank while I'm not in AQ though. I have to go and manually select a different mount which isn't hard but it defeats the purpose. ANother thing I wish to not use mammoths and would like to find a way to pull them out of the database if I can.
  • #53
    Go into favorites select each mount you do not want to use and turn the frequency down to 0.
  • #50
    For while I'm in Dalaran, I tried to turn off any chance that I get the travelling mammoth. I slid the bar to 0% but still get the mammoth mount. I don't want it when I'm in the sewers either. On one of my toons I only have 2 fast land mounts the mammoth and a saber. I get the mammoth more than the cat. Please tell me how to stop the mammoth from appearing or fix this.
  • #49
    The new x-52 rocket is showing as a land mount in coconuts. Is there any way to edit it's properties to fix this?
  • #45
    my button tells me i have no mounts. it works on all my alts but not my main. help please
