What is RBM?

With Cataclysm new heroic instances came and we all know the dificulty is now much harder than it was on wotlk. Many people are forced to go 5 man heros with random groups. The problem: Some of the randoms might not know what the boss mechanics is. In Addition, it might be he is to afraid of asking because he might be kicked. To solve that you can use RBM. RBM explains the boss mechanics of the boss in front of you.

How does it work?

When you get in an instance via the dungeon finder the first boss will be loaded automatically and - if configured - the RobBossMods Window will appear Left-Click on the Minimap Icon/ Titan Panel also toggles the RobBossMods Window and you can send the tactics for the current chosen boss to either Party/Raid,Yourself,Officer or Guild. Right-Click on the Icon/TP and you will go the setting section.

In the RobBossMods Window you can choose a boss manually and send the tactics. If you target a boss who is supported by RBM then the current Boss will automaticlly set. Also, after a boss died, RBM will load the next boss automaticlly ( only works in linear instances ).

Furthermore there is the possibility to edit the pre-made tactics for each boss. Especially the raid tactics - which i did NOT deliver with this addon (because i think you need some kind of voice communication for raids ) - can be edited and then used in your random raids.

People in your party can do !boss in /p chat or whisper you !boss. In the first case you will post the current boss tactics to /p and in the other case you whisper the tactics to the player who asked.

Deutsch:

Was ist RBM?

Mit Cataclysm sind viele neue Instanzen mit Schwierigkeitsgrad "Heroisch" erschienen. VIele sind gezwungen sich mit dem LFG Tools und Randomgruppen herumzuschlagen. Das Problem: Einige der Randoms kennen die Taktik nicht oder nur unzureichend und sind verunsichert. Mit RBM kann sich das ändern. RBM erklärt schnell und auf Anfrage den Boss, den man vor sich hat.

Wie funktioniert es?

Mit Linksklick auf das Minimapsymbol kann man das RobBossMods Fenster öffnen. Mit Rechtsklick öffnet man die Einstellungen.

Im RobBossMods Fenster könnt ihr Bosse manuell auswählen. Ihr könnt dort auch die taktiken der Bosse an diverse Kanäle senden. Wenn ihr in einer Instanz seid und ihr visiert einen Boss an, wird der als aktuell geladen. Stirbt der Boss dann, wird der nächste automatisch geladen und so weiter.

Kommt ihr in eine Instanz, in der bereits Bosse tot sind, so wird automatisch der aktuelle Boss geladen.

Weiterhin habt ihr die Möglichkeit unter Optionen die Taktiken zu editieren, falls ihr der Meinung seid, dass einige Taktiken falsch oder zu oberflächlich formuliert sind. Insbesondere für Raids habe ich KEINE Taktiken mitgeliefert, da ich persönlich der Meinung bin, dass man im Raid sowieso im TS sein sollte, um so bessere Absprachen zu treffen.

    I encountered your addon for the first time tonight. I downloaded and read your notes in detail. I have one minor suggestion that might make this even better. Instead of "autoloading" the bosses. I think it would be far more effective if it reported the tactic for the targeted boss. If the person with the addon doesn't have a target then the target of the person who requested (using !boss) the tactic should be used :).

    This could be even useful in trash pulls of heroics. I agree that the raid stuff shouldn't be in this addon because the tactics for a raid are determined by the people in the raid and their abilities. Heroics are far more static and actually have a thresh hold of doable and not doable.

    all together great addon!

    "Taktiken resetten" zu machen. Bei mir gehen die deutschen Taktiken. Falls immernoch nichts kommt, mal Bugsack installieren und den Fehler posten.

    you might have answered this already but I couldn't find any comments. Is there a rob boss mod addon that goes with this one to post the boss comments in the dungeons for lich king and the classic dungeons? We have a lot of new guild members and sometimes it takes a long time to explain to each one the different things to do. It would be much easier if sometimes when we are in a hurry I could just type !boss and bam! there is the whole explanation. Also I had never done one of the dungeons in zul drak and I wasn't sure what to expect from the boss, so it would have been nice to just pop rob boss so I can know what to do too!!!

    Thank you ssooooo much for making this functional with WOW's UI. I like Spartan's UI but can't get a good feel for it. WOW's UI just feels better. This is 1 AWESOME Mod. Thanks again for the FIX
  • #92
    No big deal buddy,
    the problem was, that i use many libraries and i forgot to make them stand alone, so you could use the addon without installing any further stuff.
    i noticed that too late but now, as you mentioned, it is fixed :)
    I am happy you can use it now !

    Hey and thanks for a great addon, at the moment I just have one small question. I set it up to whisper the ones that say the command so it doesn't clutter up the party chat to much, but would it also be possible for it to listen for the !boss command in a whisper instead of the party chat. That way that single one that doesn't know the fight feels awkward when he type it in party :D

    Oh, and a second one to, can I change the thing it posts into the chat somewhere, not the tactics but the one "if you don't know the fight type !boss.." so it instead says "Whisper me with !boss to get the tactics etc."

    Apparently RobBossMods doesn't save the position of its minimap icon reliably. Most of the time when I move it, its back at the default position at the next login. Any chance you could look into this issue?

    An alternative might be adding configurable keyboard shortcuts so players can send the current boss' tactics with a hotkey without using the minimap icon at all.

    I'll try to edit french tactics and send you the new file as soon as possible.
