1) Arrange (laws or rules) into a systematic code.
2) Arrange according to a plan or system.
There are many ISBoxer tutorials covering the built-in wizards and quick start guides. I will link to those when relevant. With that said, this guide will address some high level concepts. I will use semantic Key Map / Mapped Key naming and provide template excerpts where possible; however, the variety of classes, abilities, and game mechanics does not allow for a single, comprehensive plug and play template.
This guide is formatted chronologically. First is basic profile maintenance such as keybinds and /slash commands. Second is character management, choosing which team to play and putting the group together. Third is general utility, buffs and spellsets, and transportation such as moving to your target or hunting grounds. Fourth is actual combat and healing.
Finally, discussion on setting up your team for various Named, Monster Missions, or Raids. Ideally, this would happen prior to buffing and combat; however, the Like a Pro Virtualization (Current link: Style: MMO - Pro) actions contained within will not make any sense without first understanding how buffs and combat stances function.
TABLE OF CONTENTS: This guide will (eventually) address:
- 1) Audio Triggers
3) /Slash commands and text strings (AAs, Bandoliers, Memspellsets, Spellcasting, and Useitems)
4) Profile Overview
5) Group Formation (Invites, Group Roles, Split Group Merc Raiding and Inactive Windows for Buff only Characters and Twinks)
6) General Utility
7) Auto-Follow, Movement, and Transportation
8) Buffs and Spellsets (temporary link)
10) Virtual Combat and the Principles of Combat (temporary link)
11) Cascading Combat Chains (AA, clicky and discipline management)
IFF (temporary link)
13) Raids, Monster Missions / Shrouds, and other Events (temporary link)
