Version: 1.0

Description:

This is my first AddOn and its concept is very simple, it automatically summons a random companion pet everytime you login or change zone, unless you happen to be mounted or stealthed. Perfect for pet collectionists!



Features:
  • Summons a random companion pet at login or zone change (unless mounted or stealthed).
  • Automatically detects at first login whether the character owns any companion pets or not, and shuts down if none are found (if such a character later acquires companions and you wish to enable the addon, it will need to be done manually via /malarkey - Automatic detection only happens once per character).
  • When disabled the addon will be inactive but remains available via /malarkey for future use.


Known Issues:
  • This addon works on a very simple concept. It's pure RNG that selects which pet to summon and it could well be that it'll chose to summon the same pet that you currently have out. In that case, your summoned companion will instead be dismissed. The more companions you own though, the less likely this is to happen.
    I'm sorry that I haven't gotten around to preventing that from happening, but this is just a bit of an experiment at this stage. I might get around to solving this issue at some point in the future but no promisses there.
  • The only other potential issue is that it has noway of omitting special pets such as the Winter Veil ones that require a special reagent to summon, so you might occasionaly get a missing reagent error & no companion summoned.

I do not have a druid character and did not realise that druids are not considered mounted in their flight form, so that's something I'll have to add. As for the combat thing I guess there's no reason not to implement that extra check, although I think zoning always clears the in combat tag will do some tests on that.

This is my first attempt at writing an addon so I hope you will bear with me, but thanks for the feedback I appreciate it.

In combat?

I hope it doesn't summon in combat? Also, what about while flying? Druids especially have the "dismount when flying" option checked, and I can tell you from experience that if you summon a pet while flying and you AREN'T a druid....well, it's not pretty. XD
