About RobBossMods


Video Guide (english) (german)

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.


  • /rbm
  • /rbm toggle - Toggles RBM Frame
  • /rbm resetlang - Lets you decide whether you want to set addon to german or english ( french and russian users wont get asked )
  • /rbm autor - Important Information
  • !rbminfo (in partychat) posts information on /p
  • !boss (in partychat or /w) posts tactics on /p (or /w)
  • !loot (in partychat or /w) posts loot on /p (or /w)
  • !achieve (in partychat or /w) posts achievement realted to current boss on /p (or /w)
  • !achieveall (in partychat or /w) posts achievement realted to current instance on /p (or /w)


  • Minimapicon and LDB Support (Titan Panel) premade tactics can be send to either Guild, Raid, Say, Myself or Party
  • After entering an instance you can post a hint which is telling other players that you installed this mod and that they can get tactics by typing !boss. Post that hint via RobBossMods Frame
  • Every partymember can ask for tactics by typing !boss in party chat and instantly you will post the current tactics to him ( also works with whispers )
  • Automatically loads the proper boss
  • You can edit the premade tactics and add your own raidtactic very easily
  • Whisper Mode (default disabled): Someone types !boss in partychat and you will whisper him the tactics instead of posting on partychat
  • Option (default disabled): By targeting any boss you will sent a hint to the group reminding them to ask for tactics by typing !boss


- added new Raid [Hellfire Citadel]
- corrected typo

    Re: RobBossMods Request

    I use the "post when targeting" option, which is fine.  My request is... can you provide an option to disable the "post when targeting" for LFR/Raids?  In guild runs I dont need to be the one posting tactics, and in LFRs nobody seems to care anyways... everyone is just spamming chat with stupid stuff.  Its all fine and wonderful in 5mans, but if I dont want to post in a LFR/Raids I either have to... go into RBM options and uncheck "post when targeting" or disable the addon.  I even tried erasing anything in the tactics boxes for each boss in Dragon Soul for example, thinking that would work, but it does not.. still posts to party when targeting, even though there is no tactic.

  • #237

    both of your reports should be fixed in v0.76

    i DID NOT test the post when targeting split, please do so and tell me if it is ok now, otherwise i will fix it so just tell me

    added a forward backward button to browse a little bit :)

    have fun!

    Re: RobBossMods v0.75e

    The addon is not showing Wrath bosses in the Interface window of wow, the place where you can edit boss descriptions.  I see all other expansions except for Wrath.  However through RBM pop-up window I can select Wrath bosses from dungeons.


  • #234

    would like to have a save/load profile implemented, other than that great add on.

  • #233

    i will handle that error in 0.75d  stay tuned

  • #231

    Please have a look at v0.75c:


    - tried to fix as many blizzard spell Links crazy actions as i could
    - found out new links via digging in the files, it can be faulty it can be incomplete but tactics WILL work, it just may be that i forgot some links ....
    so please report if you detect something strange.

  • #229

    I'm having a problem with it not showing some boss tactics. One of them is Ozruk.. I know the tactics are available but when I push the button to display them it says this in the chat window:

    Tactics on Ozruk:

    But fails to display them... this is happening to others as well... I disabled all my other addons to make sur there were no conflicts and it's still happening.


  • #230

    so i found the bug. 

    blizzard decided to change some spell IDs but i dont know why and to what ids. i have to find out but at the moment i am completly busy, so i added v0.75b which is a hotfix...

    instead of getting an error, robbossmods will display the old spellid without a link, so the addon works again. i will add the correct new spell ids later, but it can take some time. at last untill mop release :/

    sorry guys 

  • #226

    that doesnt help me a lot. What did you do when the error occured? Did you enter an instance? Did you target something? :)  

  • #227

    Sorry, simply entered instance.

    Edit: Hmm, or actually it could be that it poped on 1 of the bossess in HoT. Will try to catch it again... my bad.

    i know there is a bug, bugging me for a while now. so thanks for your tribute :) maybe i will find the bug soon, i could simply add a workaround but i rather prefer finding the source of the error, so if the bug pops again, tell me so :)

    Hallo! - Ich find das Addon äußerst hilfreich, aber wie ShadeofNyx schon schrieb, ist es sehr, sehr schade, dass die zuvor veränderten Erklärungen gelöscht bzw. überschrieben wurden. Zugegeben, das mit dem Editieren der Zeilen kann ich mangels Kenntnis nicht nachvollziehen. Besteht denn da für einen Laien ebenfalls die Möglichkeit, das zu ändern oder sogar rückgängig zu machen? Oder bleibt da nur übrig, alles neu zu schreiben? Frown

    (Davon ab: Ich fand das alte Aussehen angenehmer... vorrangig, weil ich einzelne Worte eindeutiger zu verstehen finde, als Bildchen. Aber das ist wohl persönlicher Geschmack Wink. )

  • #222

    Naja also die taktiken sind noch da und zwar unter


    da stehen sie drin, allerdings sind die IDs verkehrt, daher geht es auch gerade nicht. Man müsste um die Taktiken beizubehalten dort alle IDs ändern... und zwar per Hand. Die richtigen IDs habe ich als Liste ja shade bereits hier gepostet. Das dürfte halt nur etwas aufwendig werden.

    Falls du das machen willst, beachte WoW muss ausgeschalten sein, da sonst die Datei einfach wieder überschrieben wird.
