Huge thanks to @Matenia who just spent countless amounts of hours fixing the PartyBot-Helper plugin to function correctly in 3.3.5 WOTLK. Please show some love and support any way you can!

 

I wanted to make a guide on how to get the best out of party mode. I first had a lot of issues when I used party mode, some due to myself and others due to plugins no longer working. I still have little experience and I am trying to optimize whenever and wherever I can I will keep updating as I find stuff. Not everything will be tested myself, some links I post for easy navigation on supporting plugins. If they don't function correctly please reply to the thread or send me a message and I will update/remove them from the thread.

First I will start with some problems that I had

  • Follower being left behind
  1. Usually due to the leader getting to far ahead

 

  • Follower randomly stops following
  1. Usually due to incorrect settings 
  2. Plugin compatibility
  3. Plugin no longer works

 

  • Follower not eating/drinking
  1. Party mode is very basic it does not support this on it's own

 

  • Follower not training abilities/using vendors
  1. Party mode is very basic it does not support this on it's own

 

  • Following to close/standing on top of leader
  1. Usually due to incorrect settings

 

  • Movements are very similar/suspicious 
  1. Doesn't matter if you are a follower or leader pathing is all the same

 

  • Leader out levels my follower
  1. Usually due to being left behind
  2. Using a questing profile

 

Some of the above issues I have been able to solve others not so much due to plugins no longer worker as intended.

  • Solve follower being left behind
  1. https://wrobot.eu/files/file/428-wait-party/

This is a simple alternative if you do not want the partybot helper DO NOT use both plugins at the same time as the leader needs to remain un-paused to give coordinates for followers.

  • Solve follower randomly stops following
  1. https://wrobot.eu/files/file/1645-partybot-helper/

Along with the WaitParty plugin this one will also communicate world coordinates to your other Wrobot clients plugin to ensure you stay together. Setting the stop follow distance to 1-5 seemed to work the best. 

  • Solve follower not training abilities/using vendors
  1. https://wrobot.eu/files/file/1645-partybot-helper/

Same as the previous plugin it  adds support for vending and training.

  • Solve follower not eating/drinking
  1. https://wrobot.eu/files/file/1645-partybot-helper/

Same as the previous plugin it adds support for regeneration with food and drinks!

 

  • Solve following to close/standing on top of leader

This is due to incorrect settings. The party bot plugin may solve this with the stop follow distance. I recommend setting follow distance to 15 in Wrobots party mode settings. This allows your leader/tank to go in first and get aggro then your healer or DPS follows up closer if needed. The followers path on their own, they do not use the in-game follow so you don't have to worry about them getting stuck behind something that often.

  • Solve movements are very similar/suspicious
  1. https://wrobot.eu/files/file/1547-smoothmove/

I recommend activating this plugin on your leader just to change the smoothness of how it paths that way the follower isn't exactly the same. I don't have much experience with this plugin so play around with it and see how it works for you.

  • Solve leader out levels my follower

Make sure you are only using grinding profiles, the follower will not pick up or turn in quest. If your leader is questing it will out level the follower for sure. Make sure your follower is also not being left behind.

 

 

Tips and tricks

  1. Turn of flight masters in Wrobot so your leader doesn't fly off without you
  2. Use free for all looting so only your leader loots, this prevents the follower from dragging behind. It also doesn't require you to install another plugin to roll for items that drop
  3. Be careful if you are set in healer mode on the follower it will not attack back if the leader happens to run away from combat and the aggro switches to you
  4. Unless you plan on questing by hand on specific class quest try to stick to classes that don't require special quest for abilities
  5. Only have the leader skin or mine nodes that way the follower isn't delaying the leader

 

Additional fight classes, profiles and plugins I highly recommend

  3. https://wrobot.eu/files/file/303-move-during-combat/
  4. https://wrobot.eu/files/file/1471-whatsgoingon-showing-bot-status-ingame/

 

Thanks to the following people for creating these fight classes, profiles and plugins that make all of our lives easier!

Just fyi, PartyRegen is included in the PartyHelper plugin and training cannot really be broken (or shouldn't be anyway).It just adds wRobot's training state, so if you have trainers in your wRobot database, it should go on every level up (if you've activated it). Otherwise everything will be ignored as is customary for wRobot.

Ok I will update that part of the thread to state it is included in PartyHelper plugin. As far as the training I will play around with the PartyHelper plugin again and see if I can't get it working for myself.

Thank you.
