Ravenous Mounts  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.6.0
by: Spontyman [More]




Now looking for translators! If you speak a language other than English and would like to help, I'd be honoured if you got in touch!


Ravenous Mounts

Chooses the best Mount for the job without any set-up; it’s all based on your Mount Journal Favorites. Minimal in-game configuration to customise your summoning experience. Can even clone your target's mount (if you have the mount too)!


How does Ravenous Mounts work?

  1. The Addon creates a macro for you under General Macros called "Ravenous Mounts". Put the macro on your bars!
  2. Mark your favourite mounts in your Mount Journal as your normally would and use the macro. The Addon will act like the built-in "Summon Random Favorite Mount" button but will respond more intelligently:
    • it can more accurately detect when a zone is flyable
    • it can summon a swimming mount when you're underwater
    • it can summon Maw-specific mounts you've learned when in The Maw (likewise for Ahn'Qiraj and Vashj'ir)
    • using key-modifiers (alt, control, shift) with the macro can summon specific types of mounts (e.g. vendor mounts, passenger mounts)
    • it can even clone your target/focus' active mount if you have learned it too (great for mount-off competitions!)

If you'd rather manage your own macro, you can use the following slash-command: /ravm


Why?

The default button in the Mount Journal isn't sufficient or smart enough. Ravenous Mounts fixes issues with Blizzard's code like flying detection and adds checks for things like if your character is underwater, and if so, summon a swimming mount. It also does fun things like check when you're in Ahn'Qiraj and can summon your Qiraji Battle Tanks or clone your target/focus' mount for fast-paced mount-offs or just to flex on someone.


Usage

Ravenous Mounts comes with a small handful of commands available for you to check configuration, toggle settings, and see data about your mount lists. Here's a couple of commands illustrated:

Code:
/ravmounts help
Prints out a usage guide much like this one!

Code:
/ravmounts config
Shows you your configuration settings.

Code:
/ravmounts passenger
Forces Ravenous Mounts to call a specific type of mount, regardless of the situation you're in. Available types:

- flying
- ground
- swimming
- vendor
- flying passenger
- ground passenger
- vash'jir
- ahn'qiraj
- maw
- chauffeur

I'd like to give some more transparency to what the AddOn considers "Vendor", "Passenger", "Flex" mounts, etc., so I've added labels to the tooltips for mounts (e.g. the ones that appear in the Mount Journal) and this is available now (as of version 2.4.1).

And as always, I'm looking for translators, so please get in touch if you're able to help! Thanks!

I must have introduced an error. I've tested things with version 2.3.4 and didn't run into any errors. Hopefully it sorts things out for you too!

Available from version 2.3.0:

I finally put the work in to figure out how to create Interface Options, rather than rely on the sorta clunky slash commands the addon has been using up until now. This means that rather than toggle configuration settings by hand, you can use simple checkboxes.

You can access your configuration as before:

Code:
/ravm config
Hopefully, I haven't broken too much, and this is a positive update for Ravenous Mounts!

Turns out I had been checking the current zone wrongly for, well, probably since BfA… but thanks to this bug report it is now fixed as of version 2.2.8! Many thanks, again, for reporting it.

Blizzard default favourite system doesn't account for the maw restrictions... so even if you have the rare drop one in your favourites it'll still try cast other mounts...
I've added a check for Maw Mounts in version 2.2.6, which is now available!

Thanks for the suggestion.

Meh, that's fine. Some of them go a step further and give you a mount outdoors, travel in combat, or cat indoors. That's fine, too. Some of them even give you cat indoors, travel in outdoors combat, and a mount depending on flying/ground.

But none of the macros give you cat form vs. travel form PLUS soulshape PLUS a fully randomized mount from your entire catalog.

With Ravenous Mounts, I was finally able to build that macro for Druids! I'm so proud of it. It's my first big boy macro. It will always summon the fastest form of travel available to your current condition, including Shadowlands soul shape. Here's how it works:

1) If you can fly, always pick flight form. This is top priority.
2) If you ARE in a rest area and cannot fly, pick Soulshape because it's cool. Use flicker to blink until player status changes.
3) If you ARE NOT in a rest area and moving outdoors, pick Stag/Travel Form.
4) If you ARE NOT in a rest area and moving indoors, pick Cat Form.
5) If you are standing still outdoors, use Ravenous Mounts to summon a random mount from your full catalog.
6) If you're swimming, Swim Form.


Code:
#showtooltip
/cast [flyable] Travel Form; [resting] Soulshape
/run if (not UnitAffectingCombat("player")) and (GetUnitSpeed("player")==0) then SlashCmdList["RAVMOUNTS"]("ravm") end
/cast [indoors] Cat Form; Travel Form
Hey, fantastic work! I'm so, so pleased to hear that this AddOn is making your experience of the game even better; even more pleased to hear how you took it upon yourself to find a solution and how proud of it you are! I love hearing about things like this.

The only thing I would say is that Ravenous Mounts actually checks if you're in combat before trying to mount, so you can probably modify line 3 to read the following:

Code:
/run if (GetUnitSpeed("player")==0) then SlashCmdList["RAVMOUNTS"]("ravm") end
Thanks for sending this in—it's something I've thought about implementing into the AddOn for a while but have never seen a really clear way to do it, but it looks like you found it!

So, I added a variable to check if I was flying (flying = IsFlying() ) and check that I'm not flying before dismounting/exiting vehicle etc. Any chance of adding that permanently to the mod so I don't have to keep re-adding it myself?

Thanks!
<K>
Thanks for the kind words.

That's a fantastic idea! I've added it to release 2.2.2 which should be available now.

Hi,

I really like the ease and simplicity of what this addon does. My only issue, and I realize it's entirely due to binding to my mouse-button, is that when I'm flying and hit the hotkey bind, I dismount and fall to my death.

So, I added a variable to check if I was flying (flying = IsFlying() ) and check that I'm not flying before dismounting/exiting vehicle etc. Any chance of adding that permanently to the mod so I don't have to keep re-adding it myself?

Thanks!
<K>

I thought, "Why not?" and we're not on version 2.0.0!

This is thanks to a lot of great work from a handful of folks, and this release is dedicated to everyone who's enjoyed Ravenous Mounts over the years. I hope to be able to maintain it until it can't serve its purpose any longer; until then, thanks for all your feedback and help as we continue forth into murky territory (once again )

Another check-in from the author!

I'll be trying to get this up-to-date for Shadowlands. I hope to have the AddOn ready within a few days.

In case anyone is watching these comments for updates, I’ve added a handful of changes to account for Battle for Azeroth (finally).

Thanks for sticking it out, and please do let me know if you have any further bugfixes!
