Hydra - Multibox Leveling Helper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0.3.0
by: Phanx, Akkorian

Hydra is a multibox leveling helper that aims to minimize the number of times you need to actively control secondary characters.

Scroll down for a full list of features. Options are accessible by typing “/hydra” or by browsing to the Hydra panel in the Interface Options window. Several common commands can also be keybound in the standard Key Bindings window.

Please note that Hydra is not a replacement for key cloning software — addons can’t cast spells, target units, or perform many other actions, so you will still need some way to send your key strokes and mouse clicks to your secondary characters’ instances of WoW.
Bug Reports & Feature Requests
Post an issue on GitHub (preferred), or post a comment here on WoWInterface. If you are reporting a bug, please read this first and provide as much of the requested information as possible.
Language Support
  • Works in all languages.
  • Translated into English, Deutsch, Espańol, Français, Русский, and 한국어.
  • Add or update translations on the CurseForge project page or send me a PM.
Full Feature List
Hydra operates on the basis of “trust”. You tell it which characters you trust, whether they're your multibox characters or just your questing buddies, and features are enabled or disabled depending on whether you’re in a party with trusted characters or not. For example, whispers are only forwarded to party chat if everyone in the party is on your trusted list.

You can add or remove names to your trusted list in the options panel. There's also an option to add everyone in your current party to your trusted list, for quick setup for multiboxing groups.
Automation
  • Accepts summons and resurrections.
  • Declines duels, guilds, and arena teams.
  • Repairs equipment and sells junk to vendors.
Chat
  • Forwards whispers to secondary characters to party chat.
  • Forwards responses in party chat back to the sender as a whisper from the secondary character.
Follow
  • Notifies you when a party member starts or stops following you.
  • Type “/followme” or “/fme” to command all party members to follow you.
  • Type “/corpse accept” to make all other party members who are ghosts accept their corpse.
  • Type “/corpse release” to make all other party members who are dead release their spirit.
Mount
  • Causes other characters in the party (and in range) to mount when you mount.
Party
  • Accepts party invitations from trusted characters.
  • Request a party invitation by typing “/inviteme name”, where “name” is the target. If no target is specified, your current target unit will be used.
  • Request a promotion to party leader by typing “/promoteme”.
Quest
  • Accepts quests that another trusted party member already accepted, or all quests
  • Accepts quests shared manually or automatically (eg. escort quests) from players
  • Accepts quests started from looted items
  • Shares quests accepted from NPCs
  • Turns in completed quests (you still need to choose a reward if there’s a choice)
  • Abandons quests abandoned by trusted party members
Taxi
  • Autoselects the last taxi node selected by anyone in the party in the last 60 seconds.
  • Type “/cleartaxi” to manually clear the selection for the current character.
  • Hold the Shift key when interacting with the flight master to bypass this module’s functionality.

Limitations & Caveats

Chat module limitations:
Whispers containing a high number of “spam words” (words that commonly appear in goldselling, powerleveling, phishing, or other spam) are forwarded as “POSSIBLE SPAM” instead of the actual text, to avoid having your account appear to send spam. If you want to see the actual message, check the receiving character’s chat log.

Whisper forwarding is disabled in non-trusted parties, and there is currently no notification if someone whispers a secondary character in this situation.
Primary character detection:
Hydra currently offers two methods for detecting the primary character. By default, it assumes that the primary character is the party leader. You can use the options panel to switch to checking for applicaton focus instead, but this method will not work if you are using multiple physical machines, and may not work if you are running multiple clients in windowed mode.
Advanced Chat Usage
If whispers from multiple senders are forwarded to party chat, your responses in party chat are assumed to be directed toward the sender of the most recently forwarded whisper. You can respond to a previously forwarded whisper by prefacing your message in party chat with “@name”, where “name” is the name of your character that forwarded the whisper.

If whispers from multiple senders are forwarded by the same character, you can respond to a previous message by whispering that character with “@name message”, where “name” is the name of the person you want “message” to be whispered to. You can also use this feature to have your secondary characters send whispers to people who haven’t already whispered you.

I've pushed some API updates on GitHub, but don't really have any ability to test any group features on a trial account. If someone could grab the latest files (just unzip them into your existing Hydra addon folder without deleting it first, otherwise you'll get errors about missing libraries) and test that the Mount and Quest modules are now working correctly, that would be helpful.

1. Please start by contributing some patches on GitHub. My past experience has been that anyone who volunteers to take over an addon I've decided to stop maintaining has either (a) posted one update and then disappeared or (b) just disappeared without ever doing anything, so I'm (hopefully understandably) a bit skeptical about just handing anything over without seeing that the person is actually serious about working on the project.

2. Ideally anyone who takes over the project is willing to keep it updated on WoWInterface as well as Curse. It's hardly any work even if you upload updates by hand (and zero work if you use a script to manage it for you) and far more convenient for the people who prefer WoWI and are already used to getting updates for the addon here.

I am open to accepting patches (preferrably as pull requests on GitHub), and if someone with experience maintaining WoW addons wants to take a more active role, I'm also open to adding them on as an official maintainer or even handing over the entire project.

All issues (and comments about issues) should be posted on GitHub, please, so they're all easily viewable in one place.

HI, I would be willing to keep this updated as a side project i know a few that use it as its a lot simpler then jamba that i took over last year.


i use cruse more then wowinterfaces so that would be the place i would like to help/run to the project from there.

I don't use Git often. How do I locate your updates? I don't see any files that have been updated recently.
Thanks.

Loot-Loot.lua:35 attempt to compare nil with numbers

This is an old bug. What's weird is the toon name was not the name of either the toon I was on, or the toon I invited to party....WEIRD stuff. The toon IS on the same account as the toon I copied this error from.

Add Group - not working

Clicking the "Add Group" button is not adding any character info in the savedvariable files.
I have 5 accounts, 5 characters all on server Lightbringer.
I'm using version 6.2.0.31 dated 8/11/2015 from Curse.
I removed all addons and all savedvariable files.
Only Hydra and ISboxer addons are loaded.
I have been using a much older version Hydra up until today. The older version's "add group" does work. The older version was dated before 03/21/2015.

An assist module is/was in the works that would let you assign a keypress to have all of your secondary characters /assist your primary character. It's theoretically finished but I never got around to testing it. You can un-comment it in the TOC if you want to try it out.

I also had vague plans for a status module that would show you stuff like which characters were following you, which were targeting your target, etc. in a window but never even got started writing it. Unfortunately my interest level in WoW these days is hardly high enough for pokemon and garrison menu clicking on one account, let alone multiple...

There's a ticket for this on GitHub and I'll get around to adding it eventually. It'll probably just be a "send" button you have to click to push your current configuration to your party, rather than an automatic push of every option change.

This should be easy enough to add to the Follow module. I'd suggest posting a ticket on GitHub though.

- Marking a mob creates a /targetexact mobname macro on each character; allowing for quick target change using keypresses. Macros can be edited to crowd control.

- Configure [addon] options for all characters from just one character.

Also, I personally first used Useful Extras, which stopped being supported in 2013. The one feature I most miss is the ability to ask/have someone on your friend's list follow you, even if they weren't in party. Sometimes there's only room for one for a world boss, or you're trying to do something, but have one toon queued for something - and Blizz has yet to allow people to individually queue for PvE stuff if they're in a party.

Thanks for keeping this addon going - I'd be lost without it!

/followme seems to be broken in the latest patch. Worked fine in 6.0.2.206 for me.

Automation settings not being saved

I posted a ticket on Github.
When I have PhanxChat and/or PhanxBuffs enabled, Hydra won't save it's automation settings: it ignores what I change in interface options. Also, I cannot select "use guild funds".
