Lock stops following after using drain soul

Like the topic says. After I use drain soul my slave stops following. Is this a known issue and is there a solution? It's really annoying having to make my slave re-follow after every combat.

Re: Lock stops following after using drain soul

FAQ: Why do my guys stop auto-following when I fight something?
World of Warcraft breaks auto-follow in any of the following conditions:

  • Your character performs a melee swing
  • Your character begins channeling a spell
  • You press a movement key or use mouselook

To re-follow after combat, the default hotkey is Alt+F.

Some builds do not have this "problem", as they do not have (or can avoid using) channeled spells and do not (or can avoid doing any) melee. WoW Addons can also periodically re-follow for you automatically; an example of this is the Follow Strobing feature of the Jamba Addon. If you have the Jamba Addon already, ISBoxer provides a Mapped Key to toggle Follow Strobing (in ISB42 - Base Hotkeys, you will need to set a Hotkey for it). There is also a Jamba feature to auto-follow after combat (your mileage may vary).


Sounds like you used a channeling spell. This behavior in WoW has not changed in a long time, and sure -- it is annoying to have to re-follow after. :)

Wow thanks for such a quick reply! Sorry but I'm just coming back to multiboxing wow after years off. Where can i change the alt+f key command in isboxer? I just want to set a new key.
