#############
Description :

- Scout is a little add-on that serve one purpose : Reporting PvP-enabled players of the opposite faction.

##########
Features :

- Scout does its job by sending a message to the LocalDefense channel, in which you can see the Rank, the Name, the Race, the Class, the Level of the spotted player.

It will also inform of the general location of the ennemy by displaying the Area and sub-area.

Also, for increased accuracy your own coordinates are sent. There is at the moment no way of customizing this message.

To help you get to the right 'spot' in case someone else is using this add-on, your own coordinates are displayed on the top part of your mini-map.

The reporting is done on the 'Target_Player_Change' event, that meant when you acquire a new target.


##############
Installation :

- Simply put this folder in your /interface/add-ons/ directory
- Issue a '/scout default' command to set the default values

Ganerally when the game reports a level as being ??, the target is at least 10 levels above you.
For example if the user was level 59 and the target was level 72, it might be more informative if this addon could do the math and display it as 69+ rather than ??.

This doesn't have a keylogger. As previously mentioned, there is no executable file in this. Also, want to know a way to make your WoW account COMPLETELY IMMUNE to keyloggers? Buy a Blizzard Authenticator. It makes keyloggers useless against your account. Even if your password was 123456, and you spammed your account info in the trade channel of the game, no one would be able to get into your account without the Authenticator. Well worth the $7 for it I'd say.

No it doesn't, there's no way it could. There are no executables in it, thus no way there's a keylogger in it. It's perfectly fine.
