CLUCK! Pet Chicken Getter Helper
Version: 3.03
by: Archippus [More]
Drazulfel's CLUCK! Pet Chicken Getter Helper

There aren't many items in game that are as cool as the pet Prairie Chicken that you can acquire at Saldean's Farm in Westfall. That's probably because there aren't many items in game that are as tedious, ridiculous and monotonous to acquire. Once I was lucky and got my chicken to pay attention and lay an egg after only 6-7 /chicken emotes. Then again, I've had to repeat the emote more than 100 times on occasion. Usually, the number of clucks lies somewhere in between.

With "Drazulfel's CLUCK! Pet Chicken Getter Helper", the monotony (and embarrassment) of trying to get your pet chicken is over! Simply copy the PetChicken folder into your AddOn directory. There are no options, no controls. Simply walk to Saldean's Farm and target a chicken, and the Chicken Getter Helper will do the rest. Every time you target a new chicken, the Chicken Getter Helper will effortlessly perform the /chicken emote on the targeted foul a total of 50 times.

It shouldn’t take you more than a click or two before that little rascal stares at you quizzically, and offers you the CLUCK! Quest. Only a bag of Special Feed stands between you and a life of bliss with your new pet Prairie Chicken…

You can change the 50 to something else although I wouldn't recommend going any higher than that.
Either way you do it to get the quest going, whether it's by addon or macro, it's best to be cautious about other players around you. Blizzard defines spamming as the same message, or emote, being repeated faster than once every 30 seconds.

I used a macro that does this 200 times in one click, then I immediately dragged it off my bar when it's done to prevent it from being clicked again.

From a performance aspect, the only impact with using higher numbers is a slight lag for the next few frames as the emote commands are sent to the server and the game responds to the flood of emote events. The larger the number, the more lag you get.

/macro

make a new macro, name it whatever, icon doesn't matter.

/chicken
/chicken
/chicken
/chicken
/chicken
/chicken
/chicken
repeat enough to fit in one macro (max 255 chars)

press macro like mad

win.

this takes 30 seconds to set up ingame without any addon.

True, but some people aren't as knowledgeable about macros as other people, and some are lazy! This solves both issues, hehe.

Thanks for the comments, good and bad.

This AddOn is more of a learning experience than anything. It's the first one I've attempted to write from scratch in its entirety. It's small, a little bit silly, and not too complex - but it works! And, that's what I was going for. Proof of concept.

As a guy with a wife who is a mini-pet fanatic, and not tech-minded enough to ever think to write her own macros (a trait she has in common with a large percentage of the WoW player base... I'd put money on it), it definitely has a legitimate use for its intended audience.

I don't see why it should be, considering this is a real quest, and that it is annoying to get the chicken to give it to you in the first place. This addon should help out people trying to get the quest started.
