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.

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.

    hi , gala's problem effect me aswell so its really not a one time isolated thing and would very much like a fix to that :p , also can you make the minimap icon not always be on top of every window ? , like say i open my atlas or normal world map the icon always shows on top of it like a stain lol , both little frustrating as you can imagine :p , also i think i said this before but just in case i was mistaken lol , could it be possible to have tacts on the non 85 stuff ? , might take some time ofc but would be nice to have it since i prefer your addon above bossnotes :) , and also the little pro-active system that warn when a certain spell is cast ( aka , breath of hetiss don't stand in front ... ) being said is very interesting and should be expanded to more :D , ow about that could we get an option to choose channel ? , instead of always say , party / raid / custom / yell ( last one ofc only in a group :p ) , also coudl it be possible to make tickets so we don't spam comments like i'm currently doing xD , ty and sorry for the massive list lol

    @galapogasian interesting some players tell me that the icon stays where they pulled it and also in my version everything works very good. But i do get a few reports that the minimap icon is not where it is intended to be.. i will try to fix that but i cant tell you when that will happen

    Nice add on. Did not see an actual link here to post bugs. The Minimap button does not lock- moves every time you log out. Thanks
