PocketHelper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2-20000

PocketHelper - Helping decent rogues make a better living

PocketHelper is designed to ease the life of a rogue attempting to pick
pockets. When in stealth with an active target, it places a Pick Pocket
action button in the middle of the screen. If a target's pocket is picked
successfully, it then replaces the button with the next item from the
loot window.

Thus you can click the same place repeatedly to pick pocket and loot, this
makes the process much faster than having to move the mouse over the loot
window etc.

To work, you must have the Pick Pocket skill somewhere (anywhere, it
will find it) on your action bars.

You can use the following commands to configure the addon:

/pockethelper Get command usage and current version/config
/pockethelper enable Turn on pockethelper
/pockethelper disable Turn off pockethelper
/pockethelper scale <num> Set button scaling (default 1.25)
/pockethelper alpha <num> Set action alpha (default 0.5)
/pockethelper xoffset <num> Set X offset (default 0, can be negative)
/pockethelper yoffset <num> Set Y offset (default 0, can be negative)
/pockethelper inrange <flag> Set whether to hide if out of range (0/1)
/pockethelper reset Reset all settings

There's also a keybinding you can set to toggle whether pockethelper is
active or hidden.

If you can provide missing localizations, please email me with the
appropriate locale specific strings, at the very least with then name
the Pick Pocket spell in your locale, and what the locale is
(Email: iriel@vigilance-committee.org) and I'll update the addon accordingly.

Too many people don't understand that not everyone likes to do things exactly the way they do them; that the way they do things is the only right way or the only logical way. That is often not true. In this case, some of us LIKE to click on buttons, and DON'T LIKE to reach for a bound key. It is nice that you prefer it your way, but please be more understanding that there is a world of people out there, and although many are like sheep or lemmings, thankfully there are many who are not like everybody else.

Anyway, I have found that this still works. When I saw the PickPocket icon looking like the Attack icon, identified so by the tooltip, and not highlighting when in pickpocket range, I assumed it wasn't working. But clicking on it still opens the PickPocket loot window. So any fix needed is merely cosmetic. Apparently a matter of changing the frame attributes. Since I am only recently trying to learn LUA and XML, I am not sure if I want to take time to investigate it. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will look at it, or at least give me some more specific direction. Or at least help me to get over my fear of the unknown

The author of this mod is obviously NOT A ROGUE.

Guys really.. this mod is pointless. pickpocketing can be done :
on the move
with hotkeys
during fights

with the standard blizz interface without mods.

1 - take your pickpocket spell and put it on your action bar
2 - assign a hotkey to that actionbar button
3 - turn auto-loot on in interface options.

4 - target mob.
5 - strafe target approaching from behind, and spam the pickpocket hotkey.
6 - rejoice as you automatically (on the move) loot : poison reagents, money, fadeleaf, poison cures, locked boxen, etc etc.

done. no need to click any buttons. you dont even have to stop and loot.

Wow 2.2

I guess I shouldn't expect much, since there has been no activity here since late 2006, but I really would like to see this fixed for 2.2. Please?

Thank you for a really useful AddOn that I would not like to be without. I hope to see it back soon.

Distract button

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Add a button attached to the main button to Distract. I use distract every single time I pick pocket, and alot of time that I dont. It would be so much easier to click two buttons right next to each other in the middle of the screen than to scroll to the bars below and then back to the middle each time.

I've seen it requested sooo many times. Maybe add a slash command to hide the distract button for those that dont want the extra button.

Since you have to have a pickpocket button on your action bars for this to work (according to the description)... just think for a bit, add a hotkey for that button instead. ;P
Saves a bit of trouble and bloat unless the author reworks the addon.

Those of you having problems, are you sure you have the most recent (1.10?) version of PocketHelper? There were some changes to the game API's that required an update when 1.10 came out.

As for a 1.11 version, one will be forthcoming once 1.11 goes live and I can get at my Rogue.

Been a fan of this mod for a while now, thanks

I noticed with 1.8, the PocketHelper button is showing for most mobs, even non-humanoid mobs that can't be pickpocketed

I'm new to rogue'ing but I do like this very much.

Also maybe make the button draggable upon holding shift or something? Better for placing it where you like
