TB Raid Helper
TB Raid Helper automatically loots gold, quest items, keys and currency items off of corpses and chests. Currency items include Emblems of Heroism, Emblems of Valor, Emblems of Conquest, Stone Keeper's Shards, and their level 70 equivalents, but also Dalaran Cooking Awards and Champion's Seals. If looting fails because the "Object is busy", TB Raid Helper will keep trying until the items are in your bags. No more leaving badges or Heroic daily quest items on corpses because Blizzard can't implement proper simultaneous looting!
TB Raid Helper implements keyword-based auto-invite, but pushes the concept a little further. If someone whispers you an auto-invite keyword, but you are not the group leader, TB Raid Helper will attempt to find someone who can invite that player. If that leader or raid officer has TB Raid Helper installed, he or she will in turn invite the player to the group! You may specify your keywords via the Blizzard Interface menu. Players who abuse this functionality may be added to your ignore list.
Players Already Grouped
If you attempt to invite a player who is already grouped, and you have at least one auto-invite keyword specified, TB Raid Helper will ask that player to drop group and whisper you your first auto-invite keyword.
TB Raid Helper provides additional auto-invite keywords during ongoing Lake Wintergrasp battles:
- invite me
- invite please
- inv me
- inv please
This option is configurable via the Blizzard Interface menu.
TB Raid Helper will automatically accept group invitations from your friends and guild mates. This feature is active if you are AFK, but not if you are flagged DND.
Calendar Event Invitation Notifications
Calendar event invitations are rather easy to miss. Did you even know the default Blizzard UI warned you 15 minutes before the start of an event? TB Raid Helper notifies you more noticeably whenever you receive a new calendar event invitation, reminds you to respond upon logon, and rings an alarm 15 minutes before an event, along with the Blizzard reminder.
TB Raid Helper filters out unnecessary announcements, and provides you with a few missing ones:
- Dungeon difficulty announcements are sometimes sent to your default chat window whenever you leave a group. TB Raid Helper will hide those.
- When the looting method is changed to Master Looter, the Blizzard UI announces it, along with the new Master Looter's name. TB Raid Helper changes this behavior so that only the new Maser Looter's name is announced.
- By default, the Blizzard UI only informs you of the deaths of party members. TB Raid Helper notifies you of the deaths of all raid members.
- TB Raid Helper will notify you whenever you are promoted to, or demoted from, raid officership.
Lastly, TB Raid Helper provides a number of slash commands which help with the management of your raid or party.
/rdisband commands disband your group. They can both be used interchangeably to disband your raid or party.
Order to Drop Group
/tdrop <name> asks the specified player to drop his or group (or makes you leave your group if no name is specified). That player needs to have TB Raid Helper installed, and either have you on his or her friends list, or be your guild mate. Players who abuse this functionality may be added to your ignore list. Flagging yourself as DND will also block this functionality.
You can use the
/tfollow <name> (or
/tf <name>) command to order the designated player to follow you, provided you are close enough to be followed. If a name is omitted, the request will be sent to your target.
/tlead command steals leadership from your party leader. In a raid,
/tlead will request raid officership. You may use
/tflead to request leadership instead of officership in a raid. Just like
/tdrop, the leader needs to have TB Raid Helper installed, and either have you on his or her friends list, or be your guild mate. Players who abuse this functionality may be added to your ignore list.Flagging yourself as DND will also block this functionality.
/pall command promotes all members of your raid to officers. This is especially helpful during ongoing Lake Wintergrasp battles, where you might want to allow everyone to invite other players to your raid.
/dall command demotes all the officers of your raid. This is especially helpful after ongoing Lake Wintergrasp battles, where you might want to be the only one allowed to invite players to clear the raid instances.

About the Author
I am a professional software engineer who plays World of WarCraft way too much and develops add-ons as a hobby (crazy, I know!). I have played the same character since the release of World of WarCraft, a hunter called Valana, in the Team BATTLE guild on the Mug'thol realm. I raid some, but my primary focus in this game is PvP.
