it's very usefull for raidleaders and mages for distributing different items to different classes. (depending on their level, class, guildmember and whatever)
you have to ERASE ALL ITEMS in your trading-profiles, if tD's gonna trade some wrong items... (like runecloth or arcane powder instead of water)
may it would help to set up all items again.
if tradeDispenser is activated, it will trade instantly, puts the needed items into the tradewindow and may shows you an HUGE accept-button you cant miss. so even trading within combat would not interrupt you.
the auto-broadcast can be used to remember your raidmembers on long raids (MC, BWL, AQ). the broadcast timer can be configured like every other function in tradeDispenser and you can write up to 8 random-messages for spamming the channel you setup.
btw: it wont broadcast if tradeDispenser's deactivated. ItemLinks in Broadcast-Messages can be added like you add Items to your chat-channels (Shift+Click)
the config-center is cut into 3 parts (TradeProfiles, TradeControl, Settings) and is very easy to use. just open the config-center via slash-command (/td config) or OSD-button.
the OSD is a quite pretty, small frame which could be placed wherever you've got free space in your UI. (it could be rotated by 90°). the 3 buttons are 6 shortcuts to all functions you normally need.
the buttons are (leftclick and rightclick):
1) insta-broadcast / auto-broadcast toggle
2) tradeDispenser toggle / reset customer-list
3) open TradeProfiles / open full config-center
You can even trade for money!!! the customer has to pay equal or more than you have defined in the profiles to get his items.
If you're running out of items you will trade your last (may incomplete) stack - tD's gonna announce automatically 'no items left, dont trade me again' (or something similar) and disable itself.
last but not least: you can configure all options separated by your char! so it's possible to turn off all frames and functions on your priest or rouge without loosing the functions on your mage.
Additional Note about the Profiles:
You can set some TradeProfiles depending on the customers class. They can be sorted in 3 groups (sorted in order of priority)
- All Classes
- Class X (e.g. Warrior)
- Group Y (e.g. Melee)
These 3 groups are ADDITIVE. if a warlock's gonna trade you, he'll get the stuff you placed in all 3 groups (e.g. All Classes + Warlock + mana-user). healer-classes (druids, priests, pala/shami) wont get items of the 'mana-user'-group - they've got an own group: 'healer'.
there are an additional feature for the profiles: you can set up to 3 racks of trading-profiles
example: you can use 'rack 1' to trade a LOT of water (preparation for long raids), 'rack 2' to trade only a small amount of water (eg onyxia or in the middle of raids) and 'rack 3' to trade some pots. (FR, NR, mana, mungo, ...)
all you have to do is to activate the rack you want!
type /tD or /tradeDispenser to get a list of all possible commands. they could replace all 6 functions of the OSD - usefull for people who dont like this small side-frame.
