Main Options

Brand new complete rewrite of Mounted is available as alpha

Mounted Priority Config

  • Complete redo of Mounted
  • profile based priorities
  • mounts can be grouped
  • macros sytem has been simplified (only 2 tags <primary>, <secondary>)
  • Fancy new interface which attaches itself to the Mount Journal page blizzard provides

Mounted is patched for 4.0

with the mount changes in 4.0 Mounted is due for another rewrite until then Mounted will work just like before (but since mount speeds now scale with skill they have all been set to max Mounted 3 will remove the speed selection options all together)

Please report any bugs to the ticket tracker here

Warning in order for Mounted to work properly in your local the following strings need to be translated at the very least.

  • L["SpeedFast"] = "extremely%s+fast" -< unique phrase found only in extremely fast mounts (310% flying)
  • L["SpeedMedium"] = "very%s+fast" -< unique phrase found only in fast mounts (100% ground or 280% flying)
    • Translations may be submitted here.

With the coming of WoW 3.0 we may now have as many mounts as we want since we learn them and do not have to carry them in you bags.

Thus my dilemma which mount shall i use and how can i chose them easily out of the mess of mounts found in the mounts tab.

Out of this Mounted was born. Instead of mucking about with secure code and make buttons that have to be skinned and carefully placed in your UI i instead chose to utilize the macro functions. Thus enabling you to simply use any actionbar mod.

So what does mounted actually do for you?

  • It will create a macro called Mounted in your global macro space this way you only use one slot and not one per character.
  • It will scan through all your mounts and create a list and sort them by speed.
  • It will then analyze your surroundings and edit the Mounted macro.
    • If you can fly then it will chose a random flying mount from the fastest category it will also chose a random ground mount to be used when using a modifier with the macro.
    • If you can not fly it will simply chose a random ground mount from the fastest category.
    • If you enter combat it will change the macro to a combat macro which you can edit in the Blizzard Addon options.
    • If you are indoors it will change to the indoor macro.
    • If you are swimming it will change to the swimming macro.
  • A new mount will be chosen for you every time you mount up.
  • the macros are compleatly customizable (editing of the attack macro is highly recommended)
  • macros can by customized with tags that get replaced when the macro is parsed (see below for list of available tags)
  • custom macros are saved globally so you will have access to them from all your characters (per account)
  • you can preview your macros before deciding on them
  • you can set priorities for mounts from 0-10 (0 = will never be selected, 10 will most likely be selected)
  • If you want to add a spell such as travel form you may do this from the options this will then be put into the mount linup (after you configured the spell)

Macro tags are:

Here are tags you may use to customize the above macros:
<ff> == Random Flying Mount (fastest speed increase)
<f310> == Random Flying Mount (310% speed increase)
<f280> == Random Flying Mount (280% speed increase)
<f60> == Random Flying Mount (60% speed increase)
<gf> == Random Ground Mount (fastest speed increase)
<g100> == Random Ground Mount (100% speed increase)
<g60> == Random Ground Mount (60% speed increase)
<g0> == Random Ground Mount (0% speed increase)
<ww> == Random Water Mount (defaults to <gf> if no mount was found)
<aq> == Random Ahn'Qiraj Mount
<s#> == will be replaced with the spellname of spellid (will not insert rank so will scale)[/code]

If any mounts are missclassified please let me know so i can fix the scanner. You may fix this on your end by simply editing the mount in the Mount Options

Mounted also supports the various Druid forms and the Shaman Ghost Wolf form though there may be some bugs associated with them since i don't have either character to do extensive testing on all i get is premades on the PTR when they are available. Mounted will also present you with some druid /shaman macros as appropriate.

any suggestions or improvements are most welcome please open a ticket about them.

If you want a very similar addons for your other Critters look no further and go to here.

    Relatively fringe case, 4 level range for two classes if they turn on the moving option, but Mounted threw an absolute fit when I enabled "isMoving" so I could use my standard mount keybinding to shift into travel form at level 16 on my baby second druid. Error spam went away when I disabled the non-moving mount macros (to Unassigned), but handling for that might be useful. Not critical, but it might be nice. Can post error spam if you'd like, but they were all just variations on it yelling about not being able to parse the non-existant mount list to make macros. :-P

    Appears to be working, except it doesn't appear to like not having a water mount, if I change it to Druid Water, it works, but default water mount throws this error:

    Mounted-2.0.13\Options.lua:538: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value) Mounted-2.0.13\MacroTextParser.lua:97: in function `GetRandomMountFromTable' Mounted-2.0.13\MacroTextParser.lua:60: in function `GetMount' Mounted-2.0.13\MacroTextParser.lua:30: in function `ParseMacro' Mounted-2.0.13\Core.lua:315: in function `GenerateMacro' Mounted-2.0.13\Core.lua:30: in function <Interface\AddOns\Mounted\Core.lua:26> Mounted-2.0.13\Core.lua:168: in function <Interface\AddOns\Mounted\Core.lua:166> (tail call): ?:

    I obviously don't have anything that you would consider a water mount, so that's probably confusing it. But being as it defaults to that macro, it could be an issue :)

    @Nirek: should be fixed in 2.0.7b if you want to check it out and give some feedback

    Before I updated, I went back to see if I could figure out what went wrong, created a ticket explaining, appears it's not a druid specific thing. Basically if you go thru all the steps of adding a spell, but then close instead of save, it doesn't let you ever try to create that spell again, steps in the ticket

    @Nirek: i am now on the ptr and was successfully able to create and add the druid forms. please check your mounts option pages to make sure that you didn't miss assign it on accident. also don't mess with the saved variable files if you make any changes there there is no way for me to trouble shoot the actual problem.

    i am working on adding druid support natively so that it will give you a set of macros and the forms added into the addon directly.

    if you want however delete your SV file and try to reproduce the steps and then post the steps as a ticket

    Edit: try out 2.0.5b it has druid support with some default druid macros (which will change depending on what forms you have)

    @Nirek: not sure what went wrong but i am in the process of getting on the ptr and getting a premade druid so i can see if i can write up something on how to add them (or write something that will add it automatically for druids)

    I can't seem to add swift flight form s40120, either by name or spellid, is that not working yet? The first time another window opened so I could add the speed etc, but it didnt appear in the list after, the macro doesnt switch to it, and it wont do anything when I try adding it again now.

    Edit: To add, in the savedvar lua, it added: [40120] = "instant", under mountSummonMode, but still nothing appears in any of the menus, and that is the only place it appears, as well.
