Description

Share this:

<big>Multiboxing and group leveling helper that aims to minimize the number of times you need to actively control secondary characters.</big>

The goal is that you only need to control a secondary character when it is necessary to interact with an NPC (eg. loot a quest item, turn in a quest, or take a taxi flight). Scroll down for a full list of features.

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.

Type “/hydra” for options, or browse to the Hydra panel in the standard Interface Options window. Some common commands can also be keybound in the Key Bindings window.

Recommended Addons/Programs

Use RealID Toons Fix if your WoW accounts are linked to the same Battle.net account, to make sure that RealID messages get directed to your primary character. This is a general Battle.net problem, not a multiboxing specific problem, so I probably will not duplicate this functionality in Hydra.

Language Support

Works in all languages. Translated into English, Español, Français, Русский (parital), and 한국어 (partial). To add or update translations for any language, please enter them on the AddonsWoW project page, and then send me a PM to let me know you’ve made changes.

Feedback

Post a comment on WoWInterface. If you are reporting a bug, please first make sure you have the latest version from this page, and then include detailed instructions I can follow to reproduce the bug myself, whether the bug still happens when all other addons are disabled, and the exact text of the accompanying error message (if any).

If you are requesting a new feature, please first check that it’s not on the big list of things addons cannot do.

If you do not have a WoWInterface account, and don’t want to create one, you can post on the WowAce forums with your Curse account instead.

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

  • Shares quests accepted from NPCs
  • Accepts quests shared from players
  • Accepts escort type quest starts
  • Abandons quests abandoned by trusted party members
  • Turns in completed quests (you still need to choose a reward if there’s a choice)
  • Accepts quests that another party member already accepted

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:

Real ID whispers and conversations are not currently forwarded, but you will be notified if a secondary character recieves one.

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.

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 for “true” multiboxers, and may not work if you run 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.
