WoW Classic Addons: Azeroth Auto Pilot

Recommended Posts

CloZYIw.jpg

Azeroth Auto Pilot is an interesting addon for speed leveling in WoW Classic and in this spotlight, we're taking a closer look what it does.

Azeroth Auto Pilot

Leveling in Classic will take a long time and some players will prefer to reach the cap as fast as possible and this addon is here to help with just that.

Azeroth Auto Pilot shows creature spawns on the map.

Azeroth Auto Pilot will save your time, telling you where to go (arrow), what to do (quest objectives). On top of that, it will automatically take flight paths, talk to NPCs, auto-accept and turn in quests. Hotkeys or macros can be used for quest items.

You can adjust it to your liking by typing /aap in the chat or through Interface -> Addons.

The addon is still in development and at the time of writing, it supports the following:

Alliance Leveling

  • Nigh Elf: Level 1-20
  • Dwarf/Gnome: Level 1-20
  • Human: Level 1-20

Horde Leveling

  • Undead: Level 1-32
  • Tauren: Level 1-32
  • Orc/Troll: Level 1-32

Feel free to test it out in the next Stress Test or on Closed Beta and let us know how it went in the comments!

Been using it so far and it is pretty sweet, still, one concern is that if everyone is using it, we'll all be funneled into the same areas, causing a horrible experience with spawn times. So beware of following the crowd :)

Our aim with these spotlights is to highlight interesting Classic Addons. We realize they may ruin the "Classic experience" for someone, but at the end of the day, nobody's forcing you to use any addons and you can play the game however you want.

Ultimately it comes down to what you want your classic experience to be:

1) Go in blind as if it was a new game just coming out, which it very well might be for most of the players?

Or..

2) Use all the knowledge and experience gained on these past 15 years to utterly annihilate classic, making it more of a speed running game than an exploration one.

Both options will have adepts, that's one of the great things with Classic, it can suit a ton of playstyles :) now obviously we at Icy Veins write guides, and as such, we are focused on giving you all the info possible, which will suit 2) way, way more than 1) players.

Part of the 15 years of experience is that the leveling race can be fatal.

I hope people learned from other's mistake.

Im glad this add on has been updated for classic! I remember spending a lot of time on wowhead getting coordinates to find the specific zone/camp/location to kill a specific mob.

Well, for some classic might be more about simply doing pre-Cata content (rather than experiencing all of the old mechanics), which is no longer available in current WoW.

Personally, I use aap for alt leveling. Currently, I’m using it on retail to speed level up my Nightbourn elf for the heritage gear. I’ve actually discovered some quest lines that I’ve not done on previous toons! Who knew? 😂 So it’s no disrespect for purist toons who want to roam the world for adventure blind. I get it and also plan to go vanilla without leveling guide with my first virgin Classic toon. It is all about the adventure! 😺

Will this addon help players speed-level professions.  Because if it does, that means those of us playing without the addon are going to be way at the end of the line in maxing their professions, which is going to impact our ability to sell leather, ore, bags, etc., and other items on the AH.  And that, in turn, will impact when we'll have enough money to purchase a mount, etc.

And even if the addon doesn't directly support leveling professions, there's an indirect impact in that now we'll see level 60s running all over the place in the different areas competing for the same leather, ore, etc., that the lower levels are trying to obtain.

I wish Blizzard would restrict addons for Classic WoW to those that were available back in 2004/5, and restrict this addon to the current version of WoW.

Ugh.

So literally an addon that plays the game for you. For those players that want the "experience" of not doing the work that was Vanilla.

There's a difference between an addon and a down right cheat. 

For example, GTFO alerts you when you are standing in bad. It doesn't literally take your character and MOVE IT to a safer place.   Pet Journal Enhanced gives you more detailed info to help pick a better pet battle team - but it doesn't pick the best team for you and then perform the battle with the best spells.  Healbot lets you set up your spells so you can click a button to heal rather than move all over a toolbar, thus saving time - but it doesn't click itself. 

The bad-terrible-horrible thing about this "addon"  is that it will affect the experience of purists who are playing classic for the CLASSIC experience. It takes away the level playing field that is a major draw for a lot of people who want to really experience or re-live what Vanilla was like.

🙄🙄🙄

      The Blackwing Lair speed runs continue unabated, and there's been a few more fastest runs, with Progress claiming the most recent/current record, taking only 20 minutes and 30 seconds to get Nefarian and co. down! Their run was actually a massive jump both from the current second place holders SALAD BAKERS (1 min 10 sec) and from the last one we covered, GUSY (1 min 23 sec), so this one will probably stay up there for a while. To make things even better, they conjured up a little celebration video as well, with some of their... ahem, "fans" "cheering" them on at the start. The video itself is pretty short, with highlights of the kills and a pretty damn good soundtrack as well, so let's take a look.
      This particular speed required over half the raid to be warriors (21, in fact), and also starred 6 priests, 5 rogues, 3 paladins, 2 hunters, a warlock, a mage and a druid. Here are the current standings in the seemingly most prestigious ongoing race in Classic at the moment, with the top 10 being separated by all of 3 minutes:

      We have another South Park Live to Win champion on our hands! DrFive had taken it upon himself to ignore every non-boar mob in Classic and get to max level as close to how the boys from South Park did as possible (but obviously couldn't quite stay in Elwynn Forest only). This isn't the first time someone has taken up and completed this very weird challenge, as it was conquered on retail back in 7.3.5, but that one took a trip to Outland to finish things up.

      This Classic attempt took almost 10 days played, 10,000 boars downed, 30 deaths and 22 million damage, but it was a success in the end, so let's take a look at the final moments, as well as some details on how he got there (including a whole lot of rested XP, help in pre-clearing Razorfen Downs etc):
       
      The entire journey will be uploaded to youtube, and there's already 36 videos up there to check out if you really like to see boars die.

      In case you don't feel like checking days' worth of footage, there's this theorycrafting video from before Classic's release on the very subject, and while DrFive didn't necessarily keep to this exact path, it's still a fun video to check out!

      Congrats to DrFive on this very weird challenge, and to everyone that keeps doing weird things in all of WoW, as we love seeing things like this make the game feel more alive. Also, make sure to re-watch the Make Love, not Warcraft South Park episode that started all of this.

      It seems the crowding has been (somewhat) alleviated, as Blizzard have disabled layering on all US servers, after having enabled it for select servers around a month ago. It remains to be seen when the same will come for EU servers.
      Layers (source)
      At this time, we’re contracting from two layers to one on all realms in this region that were layered.
      As we’ve constantly watched and analyzed realm populations over the last few weeks, we’ve seen enough of a recent trend to justify returning to the intended population arrangement for each realm. At the same time, we’ve unlocked any realms that were locked for new character creation.
      All Paid Character Transfer restrictions have been left in place. We’re going to continue to use our ability to disable that service as a stopgap, and we’ll let you know when we open or close it further.

      Nefarian and co. are having a really bad month, as APES' previous speed clear record has been taken down! The previous fastest guild had already taken 26 seconds of the time we had previously reported, and the new champions GUSY have taken another 20 seconds off that, which may not sound like much, but when your clear is that fast to begin with, it's still pretty impressive.
      Shockingly, the raid had 18 warriors and 7 rogues, with the rest of the DPS classes fighting it out for 6 slots, and the priests also joined in the DPS fun with a whole lot of smites as well! Congrats to GUSY on the run, and we're sure to see even more extremely close clears, as the guilds now compete in terms of seconds.
