About Livestock

Livestock: For all your companion needs

Now that your pets and mounts don't take up space in your bags, Livestock lets you manage them intelligently. This addon sorts your companions into land mounts, flying mounts, and vanity pets. Then, with the push of a button, you can randomly summon any of the three, or designate a favorite pet to have out on command.

You can also have Livestock always keep a pet by your side, and have it dismiss your vanity pet when you are in PVP battle and it would give away your position.

You can even tell Livestock to put you on a random land or flying mount depending on whether the area you're in lets you fly or not. Underwater or in combat, Livestock can also be configured to cast certain spells relating to travel, such as Path of Frost or Ghost Wolf.

You can even designate certain pets or mounts to be called in certain zones or subzones. Ride in style on a Frostwolf Howler while in Alterac Valley, and then switch to your favorite color of Mechanostrider while in Ironforge. Livestock will let you make sure that you have your good luck pet out whenever you're in Ulduar or Trial of the Crusader.

You can summon critters, land mounts, and flying mounts in various ways. See the ReadMe file for more information.

Localization Help:

Livestock currently only completely works for the enUS, deDE, eES, ruRU, and frFR clients. (The client is only localized completely for the enUS client, and assistance in localizing is always appreciated!) If you are on another client, Livestock will load but will show all English strings. If you are willing to help localize the addon for your language, please let me know - you'd only need to provide some simple translations and I'd do the rest. You can reach me through the Private Message system available here.

Slash Commands:

Slash Commands:

There are currently eight slash commands for the addon. View the ReadMe file for a more in-depth explanation. /livestock or /ls both work for commands.

  • Use "/livestock" to bring up the main menu bar.
  • Use "/livestock reset" to move the four Livestock Buttons back to their default positions.
  • Use "/livestock scale <scale>" to change the size of the Livestock Buttons.
  • Use "/livestock prefs" as a shortcut to access the preferences, described in the ReadMe.
  • Use "/livestock redo" to force Livestock to reset to default. Useful for squashing buggy behavior at the cost of having to reset your settings.
  • Use "/livestock [zone/subzone]" to designate a pet or mount for your current zone or subzone. For more information, check the ReadMe.
  • Use "/livestock [mount/nomount/pet/nopet]" to add/remove pets and mounts from the random summon list. Uses your active summon.
  • Use "/livestock debug" - Prints out useful debugging information that can assist the developers in solving problems. Use the command again to turn off the debugging output.

Livestock Options and Preferences:

You can find the options for Livestock in the Addons tab of the Blizzard Interface options menu. The "Livestock" tab has the major options, while options for pets and Smart Mounting are in sub-menus. You can read more about the preferences in the ReadMe file.

Bugs Reports and Feature Requests

If you find unexpected behavior in Livestock, especially in locales other than enUS, please check the FAQ at first to see if it has been addressed and if there is a possible fix.

Please report any bugs you find with Livestock, or feature requests you'd like to see, using the "Report Bugs" or "Feature Request" button underneath the Download button, up and to the right. I appreciate your feedback and support.

If you are reporting a bug, the following information is helpful: Any error messages that you saw, where you were (if you can give coordinates, that's excellent), what you were trying to do, what your menus looked like, and what class you play.


Well-deserved credit goes to the following people:

  • Khanthal (Uldum), for the original idea and being our MT so often!
  • A BIG thank you to Sbo (UI and Macros forum, Live) who helped me figure out what was the issue with Dalaran and Wintergrasp as well as suggesting the way to get around it.
  • Grimgear (UI and Macros forum, Live) for helping troubleshoot a bug, pointing me to keybindings, and suggesting rotation speed. Also for pointing out how best to adjust my GUI to compensate for localization.
  • Lunessa (UI and Macros forum, Live) for pointing me to Blizzard's instructions on creating panels in the Interface menu.
  • Xelron (UI and Macros forum, Live) for helping construct debug messages to get more information and indirectly convincing me to make my own dropdowns.
  • Ro (UI and Macros forum, Beta) for the 3D model viewer idea. Ro also originally suggested making my own custom dropdowns, which I thought was beyond me!
  • Elloria and Tgulics (WoWInterface) for helping spread the word and test the addon in its earliest stages and for suggesting highlighting the buttons when they're clicked.
  • The MVPs (UI and Macros forum) for providing the resources needed to accomplish this one as well as stepping in and answering my questions from time to time. Special thanks to Alestane and Iriel for helping me with secure handlers.
  • kdkunde (WoWInterface) for helping translate this mod into German so far!
  • Vastilia (WoWInterface) and Yorgl (Curse) for helping translate into French!
  • madbit (WoWInterface) for the Spanish translation.
  • simply (Curse) for the Russian localization.

    For druids, the following macro works pretty well

    /click LivestockComboButton
    /dismount [mounted]
  • #477
    Thanks very much for this. It was driving me crazy. :)
  • #475
    I can't dismount with the smartmount button. Is the author still around, or is there a decent replacement mod?
  • #474
    addon treats the X-53 Touring Rocket as a land mount after you have upgraded to a flying mount i know this is an odd issue and i still think it is on bliz because they say is scales to your skill but it does not down scale ( ie if you are in a land only area it acts as a land mount but if you are in a flying area it acts as a flying mount.)
  • #473
    Seems to be an issue when logging between characters and it corrupts the mount tables. I go from my hunter to my mage and then my mage tries to cast flying mounts in land areas.
  • #470
    Hello There,
    I love your addon. I was wondering, is there a macroable command that can turn on and off the preference of whether or not you are summoning your favorite pet vs. a random pet? Something like /run Livestock.ToggleFavoritePet() ? Thank you for your time.
  • #471
    I figure it out.

    /run LivestockPetPreferencesFrameToggleAutosummonFavorite:Click()

    Thank you again for the wonderful addon.
  • #468
    I don't know if this is a known issue with this particular mod, but I keep getting non-epic land mounts being summoned, even though there are currently no toons I have that *have* non-epic land mounts to summon. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, and reset my preferences on this addon, and the problem persists as of this last patch. However, this does not affect flying mounts; it will always summon the correct speed flying mount. This issue is regardless of using the land mount or smart mount option.
  • #469
    Also, forgot to mention, it doesn't auto-summon a pet when moving. When I do summon a pet in my specific zone/subzone, it will always summon a random pet.
  • #465
    As much as I hate to do it, do we know if the author is around any more? Half tempted to fork the add and put the updates up as the community wants them. Of course we need to get the blessing of the original author (All Rights Reserved) to fork it and make it community supported
  • #466
    No, I'm certainly still around. There don't seem to be any requested updates to features aside from using changing mounts such as the Touring Rocket, and I haven't been able to get a Headless Horseman's mount to test this out.

    I also will not be buying a Touring Rocket with another account, or a Celestial Steed with my own money.

    Fortunately, I have received a handful of donations for my other addons that may enable me to buy a Celestial Steed to be able to test some things about the variable mounts in more depth.

    If the speed of updates is not to anyone's liking, I can recommend some other mounting addons as alternatives! :)
  • #467
    I contributed a patch at that resolves the touring rocket challange and assert absoluteley open source rights to it.
  • #464
    /cancelform [mod]
    /cast [combat][mod:ctrl] Moonkin Form(Shapeshift)
    /cast [combat][mod:ctrl] Tree of Life(Shapeshift)
    /cast [mod:alt] Traveler's Tundra Mammoth
    /stopmacro [combat][mod]
    /click LivestockComboButton
    /click LivestockFlyingMountsButton

    Line 1: Cancel any form if a modifier is held down.
    Line 2: If in combat or ctrl is held, change to moonkin (requires balance spec).
    Line 3: Similar to line 2, only to tree of life. Use both if you are dual spec.
    Line 4: Summon your favorite riding mount if alt is held down. Change as needed.
    Line 5: If in combat or any modifier is held down, stop the macro.
    Line 6: Cast appropriate non-flying form.
    Line 7: Cast flying form instead if in flying area, or cast favorite flying mount if pressed twice.
  • #463
    After I posted about the warbot getting used even though it was deselected, the problem seems to have gone away. Nevertheless, considering how many comments there are about deselected mounts and pets getting used anyway, there seems to be a bug in there somewhere.
  • #462
    Kallech, if you type /livestock and right click all the names untill only your favorite mount is white, the smart macro SHOULD (look below) only summon that mount.

    however, recently ive been encountering nothing but bugs and glitches on this addon, summoning my paladin's charger in northrend using smart mount, when its not even my ground favorite mount, which should be the ARGENT charger, also my headless horseman's mount keeps getting summoned both in northrend and in azeroth, when it is neither my favorite flying (turbo-charged) nor ground (argent charger) mount. can we get an update? please?
