Summon a Random Mount based on ridding level, flying skill, location, and area. Simply create a macro containing /mnt or /rmount and it will summon a usable mount for the area you are in. For Options type /mnt help. Thanks to Hendew (the original author) for his hard work in creating this great add-on.
================IMPORTANT NOTICE================ Patch 5.4 changed flying mounts to all be allowed underwater and 6.0 broke the previous workaround. This change broke the current method of detecting whether your character is at the surface or not. The addon will no longer be able to intelligently select water mounts while underwater and flying/water-walking/ground mounts while at the surface.

v1.07.02 Added dynamic mount capability detection (thanks neotsn for submitting helpful data) Added /mnt setweight [0-1000] [pattern] command to set weights for mounts which affects how often they are chosen (default is 100) Allow all land capable mounts to be selected in AQ not just qiraji mounts Improved the logic that selects which type of mount to try Use IsSpellKnown() to check riding skills Create frame in lua instead of xml
v1.06.13 Added Grand Gryphon and Grand Armored Gryphon Based on v1.06.10
v1.06.12 Temporary nag messages to collect feedback. I am considering removing the location filtering feature and adding a way to weight how often to use each mount.

v1.06.11 Added code to mine certain data that the API provides about mounts in order to better understand it. Please open your \World of Warcraft\WTF\Account[username]\SaveVariables\RandomMountContinued.lua in a text editor and copy+paste the contents to this bug ticket: http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/random-mount/tickets/26-data-collection/ All data is appreciated but data from people with rare aquatic mounts (Reins of Poseidus, Sea Turtle, and Riding Turtle) is especially needed.

v0.9.8 /mnt: /rmount: Will summon riding/flying mounts in the appropriate areas. mnt and rmount are interchangeable /mnt help: Display help
Summoning /mnt: (No Flag) Summon a appropriate mount for the area /mnt r mountname: Summons riding mounts in flying areas /mnt f mountname: Attempt to summon a flying mount /mnt % (search Term): Summons a mount based on specified search term example: to summon a skeletal warhorse type: /mnt skeletal
Configuration /mnt config: Prints the current configuration /mnt safefly: Toggle double click to dismount while flying /mnt clear: Clears all filters /mnt title: Enable or disable random title change. /mnt icon: Enable or disable changing random mount macro icons to the last summoned mount. /mnt debug: Toggle debug printing for posting error messages
Removing Mounts /mnt rfilter: Toggle mount filtering /mnt remove %: Remove all mounts matching % if rfilter is enabled /mnt rfilters: List current filters /mnt clearrem: Clears the mount removal table
Location Filtering /mnt locfilter: Toggle filter to summon only specific mounts in specific locations /mnt addloc % (zone:mount name1, mount name2, ...): Add locations and mounts to location checking. Separate mounts with commas. /mnt removeloc % (zone:mount name1, mount name2, ...): Removes locations and mounts from location checking. Separate mounts with commas. /mnt loctable: Print the current location filtering table. /mnt clearloc: Clears location filters
Convenience Functions /mnt whereami: Prints your zone and mini-map zone.
You can now remove mounts based on spellId, useful for removing mounts that contain the same name.
Location filtering: This allows you to specify what mounts get summoned in what areas. You can specify a zone or min-map zone (case insensitive) and part or all of a mount's name. Enable location filtering with "/mnt locfilter". Add locations and mounts "/mnt addloc zone:mount1,mount2,..." zone can be a map zone and mini-map zone. Case doesn't matter, but it must be spelled correctly and with all punctuation as well. Separate with a colon ":" then specify mounts separated by commas ",". Mount names do not need to be the full name, partial names are fine, example ("wolf"). "/mnt addloc dalaran:talbuk,wolf,skeletal" "/mnt addloc krasus' landing:drake,dragonhawk" To remove a location, or mount from a location use "/mnt removeloc zone:mount1,mount2,..." "/mnt removeloc dalaran" - Removes Dalaran from the location table, "/mnt removeloc dalaran:wolf,talbuk" - Removes both wolf and talbuk from Dalaran but preserves all remaing mounts. To clear the entire location table use "/mnt clearloc " Print the current location table with "/mnt loctable"
safefly: If enabled, when you are flying you must double click the macro or button to dismount, to help prevent accidental suicide.
Mount Filtering: If you are tired of a specific type of mount, you can use a filter so it will no longer summon any of those type. For example, if you don't want to summon nether ray type "/mnt filter" to enable mount filtering and then type "/mnt remove ray" Any mounts containing "ray" in the name will no longer be summoned, be as vague or specific as you wish, if you wanted to you could remove all mounts with a "e" in them, I'm not sure I would recommend it but you could do it.
If Random Mount generates any errors please enable debug mode(/mnt debug) and post the code that it prints in your chat window in your comments. Make sure that you post what version you are using.
