[ADDON] Warband Lead Helper

Post#1 » Thu Jun 25, 2020 10:28 am

in the last couple of weeks I worked on a little addon to make the life of warband leaders easier.
It's a simple Button grid you can click on to broadcast text messages to the chat.

Main features:
  • Countdowns to make coordinated siege pushes easier
  • Various messages to coordinate your warband
  • Looking for members helper button (NOW with AUTOSEARCH)
  • Color mode, to see the warband leader messages better



The source code of the addon can be found here: ... LeadHelper

Documentation can also be found in the first link.

Big thanks goes to the developer of Zonepoplite. I used his addon as a framework for mine. Was a big help cause I had no prior experience with ror addon developement.

Hope it's useful for some of you and leads to better organized warbands!

This will really help pug warbands to organize themselves way better than before, and thus help the community on the battlefield. Well done :)

Hi clauherb,
glad you like it.

Customization is possible but not in game, just in the addon code itself. Here is the documentation: ... LeadHelper Feel free to ask, if you need help.

/wlh it is yes. I never tried it in a macro but it should work.

You mean the position of the window? Yes of course, you can move it around freely, by clicking (and holding) on the title bar, at the very top.

Hope that helps.
