Something new to grind for

Post  Droxia on Tue Oct 07, 2008 9:06 pm

Ok. The achievement system is coming out and when it does...well maybe it will revitilize a lot of old world PVP while giving us all Xbox player points.

Just admit it, that's all the achievement system is

Anyway...in waiting for the achinevement system I've decided that I want to get some more pets (for the pet achievements)

While some pets are only purchased through the card game or by buying a Dell XPS laptop (and curse you all who have bought collector WoW editions) let me link you to this

http://www.warcraftpets.com/

Something to think about if there is a specific pet you want.
On my personal wish list is still the phenoix hatchling and the baby fire elemental pet.

Ok why THIS of all things? If you haven't heard, The new patch will put all of our pets and mounts in their own tab. Which makes me wonder if something like a random pet macro can be done (and yes for all of those that know me in game, I'm already wondering how to do a random mount macro.)

Random Mount Macro (works in current patch, have not tried on PTR)

#showtooltip
/use [button:2] Hearthstone
/stopmacro [flying,nobutton:2]
/use [flyable,nomodifier:alt] item:25471
/stopmacro [flyable,nomodifier:alt]
/userandom item:19030, item:33977

-- end macro --

You can get the item number of your mount from wowhead. Search for your mount, when you find it look at the location, it should be "?item=xxxx" where xxxx is the item number.

This macro lets me hearthstone with rightclick, mounts my flyer if I can fly, and if I'm pressing alt in a flying zone or if I can't fly mounts one of my random swift mounts (brewfest ram and AV ram).
The reason I use itemnumbers instead of names is that you can only have 255 chars in each macro, and I hope to have more mounts soon :-P

I just confirmed through testing on the PTR that you can still mount randomly, but the item method no longer works (because they're not items anymore).

My new macro looks like this:
/castrandom Swift Palomino,Warhorse

(I don't have my charger or brewfest ram on the PTR and I havn't "learned" my AV mount)

Sorry Thinger, I meant for 3.0.2. I already have a random mount macro. My concern was that because they are going into their own "page" of sorts, if they'll still use the item codes that represent the mount (in my case that's 2 ground mounts and 3 different flying mounts.) I can copy and paste later my current one. I think the only thing I would change in my current macro is the hearthstone thing (although...as a shaman...astral recall ftw!)

I guess I'm wondering if they are turning mounts into "spells"

Looks like you answered while I was typing. This is what I was afraid of. Although because it uses "cast" I'm wondering if spells have "spell numbers"

Eh whatever, I like the Cenarion War hippogryph and my Sabercat better anyway.

Although...it makes me wonder if you can do something like this

#showtooltip
/use [button:2] Hearthstone
/stopmacro [flying,nobutton:2]
/castrandom [flyable,nomodifier:alt] (flyingmount)
/stopmacro [flyable,nomodifier:alt]
/castrandom (ground mount)

I need to check my macro at home, I don't remember there being all the /stopmacro 's in mine.

castrandom and userandom are actually aliases for the same function. I chose castrandom for the new one so I can throw my paladin mount in there and feel like it makes sense Razz

wait, so there is no real difference? If that's the case I'd rather use userandom just to save characters.

However my problem is with the item codes. An item code is way shorter that "Reins of the Swift Netherdrake"

Try that with 5 different mounts No

It appears that you use the name of the mount (like Swift Netherdrake) instead of the item/spell that summoned them. for example the Warhorse is created by casting "Summon Warhorse", but the macro just uses /castrandom Warhorse,...

By changing mounts to be a spell, all you have to do is change /userandom to /castrandom.

As far as casting a spell from ID, there are two things. One, it can only be done in a UI mod. Two, still you can only cast by spell name.

I'm researching it more. I might make a mod that does it, if it doesn't take too much out of me.

I found out there's already a pretty nice looking addon for random mounts/pets that is supposed to work after the patch (when the changes to the mount/pet storage go live).

eh, we'll see

The truth is the need for a flying mount won't be good until level 77 and 950g later >.<

I think cold flight is obtainable through a quest, not forking out dough. However, the passenger mounts are going to cost everyone a good 20kg ^^ woot for grinding Epic flight will feel like nothing.
