Auto and random summon for your pets and mounts, highly customizable. With Data Broker support.
Both companions and mounts APIs were modified a lot, here is a summary on what you can expect if you was already using the add-on. If you are new to Pets and Mounts just ignore this and start reading after Features.
With the heavy modifications to the add-on databases, I have decided to add an improvement that was not planned for now. Companions and Mounts will use separate databases for their favorites, it is similar to global profiles you are used to see in a lot of add-ons. It is more robust and expandable. See how it works by reading the Sets category below.
The unique identifier for companions have changed (ex: 0x0000000000000000 to BattlePet-0-000000000000), this is what the add-on use within it database. As they are totally different your saved sets will not be usable. There is an import feature to save at least the names of you sets.
The Hybrid category as it was is gone. It is still here but you will have to choose which mounts will be in it. This can be done within the Mounts tab in the main category of the configuration panel. There is an import feature for your old global favorites and sets.
If I missed something or you find an error use the tickets system on WowAce. This is the better way as I am instantly mailed.

There is too much spells handled by the add-on to list them here, see in game. But for a quick summary, it handles every speed increase spells.
In the Set Options category you will find several tabs.
- Companions and Mounts tabs: Here you can create sets and select which one is active for edition (If it is not the Default set you have to activate it before the add-on will use it, see bellow), when selecting companions or mounts in the Mounts List or the Companions List categories it will edit their respective active set.
- Default Sets category within Companions and Mounts tabs: Here you can create the default set of sets. This is useful if you want to create several sets and just use some of them as the default one. It is not mandatory and the add-on will search for a set named Default if nothing is set here. But if you have created a set and want to use it, it have to be selected here. Remember that the add-on will not use a custom set until asked for.
- Area Companions and Area Mounts tabs: Here you can define a set of sets for a given area, the add-on will use those sets if you are in that area.
Sets are saved on a global scope, they are not tied to the current profile, editing a set on a character will modify it for all your toons using that set. This is unique and all the other options are tied to the character profile (default set of sets, area set of sets, etc).
A set will not be considered active until it have at least one favorite selected.
You can edit the mount button macro, using classic macro syntax or LUA. As this feature is for advanced users I will not make a full documentation on it. Read the summary in game.
And if you import someone else code be sure to completely trust him/her. This code will be executed when clicking the button, and even if there is not threat for your account, you can still get griefed/scammed.
There is a lot of options, and I think more will come. But every option got a description in game, you are not alone.
I will add here more information if something is reported unclear.
Here is the priority used by the add-on.
- Force one.
- Area override.
- Area (add-on forced, ex: vashj'ir, aq40). Can be disabled.
- Favorites and Area sets.
This can be altered by some items, the Magic Broom or the Haunted Memento for example. Those specifics instances can be disabled in the options panel.
Impact on the system
As every add-on relying on databases, it is using a lot of memory. Although it will not harass your CPU, especially in combat.
Some features could not be available with the release version, as I edit the description when uploading new alpha. You can find all the add-on versions here.
