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.

      Here come some big spell batching changes to the Classic PTR, with a huge rediction in the batch window:
      PTR 1.13.7 (source)
      Today, we’ve opened the WoW Classic Public Test Realm (PTR) to test version 1.13.7 of WoW Classic. In this upcoming version, we intend to reduce the spell batching delay.
      There are numerous class abilities and spells from Original World of Warcraft that were re-implemented in WoW Classic with spell batching in mind, and we initially expect bugs or adverse consequences with spell batching reduced. In this PTR, testers have an opportunity to join us in finding such issues. Raids and battlegrounds are available in this PTR to facilitate testing in a wide variety of game content.
      Initially, the spell batch window is set to 10 milliseconds on the 1.13.7 PTR, a reduction from the 1.13.6 live window of 400 milliseconds. Please use the in-game bug reporter (default hotkey: mouseover+F6) in the PTR to submit your bug reports or feedback on abilities with spell batching reduced.
      8
      When logged into the PTR, you can mouse over any item, spell, or talent and press the assigned hotkey to initiate a bug report for that item or spell. Bug reports created in this way include valuable metadata about the spell, your talents, and your player-state when the bug is submitted.
      If you’ve unbound your “Open Bug Report” hotkey, you can rebind it in Keybindings -> PTR.
      5
      If you wish to discuss class issues related to this update with other players, we’ve opened a new discussion thread in the WoW Classic Bug Report forum here 34.
      Thank you for testing WoW Classic with us!

      Salad Bakers have cleared Naxxramas in WoW Classic under 60 minutes. This is the fastest speed clear of the raid so far. Congratulations!
      Salad Bakers have beaten their own record (1 hour 3 minutes 56 seconds) by a couple of minutes and the guild cleared Naxxramas in 59 minutes and 44 seconds!

      Here's a video of their speed clear. As TehBananaBread pointed out, a boss died every 4 minutes, which is insane!

      As the Castle Nathria RWF is going on we thought it was time to share the spotlight, as another, equally as impressive and dedicated group of players has taken down the antagonist of many low level players. You can see top level raid leading, the tactics and strategies below, as things get very hairy at the end, with all cooldowns popped and the tank having to kite!
      Unfortunately for the pro group above, this isn't the World First, as it's actually been done before - by a single player:
      Whether this is "end of expansion" type activity or just some usual clean fun, it's always great to see players just doing their own thing and finding their own fun in WoW!

      After the recent survey that went out and talked about interest in the Burning Crusade Classic, we now have a fairly reliable source talking about more news on the much expected continuation of Classic coming before the end of the year!
      Nano, formerly a core staff member of the Nostalrius private server team, who had a meeting with Blizzard about how they made their server while Vanilla Classic was being developed, tweeted this yesterday:
      While he may theoretically have been referring to the survey, the tweet was posted significantly after it, so it seems more likely this is related to an actual official confirmation/announcement, especially since it refers to a schedule specifically. This comes after Nano correctly predicted/leaked the release schedule for Naxxramas, but also had a time set for the TBC Classic beta in said earlier leak:
      So this source has been pretty reliable in the past, and this tweet sure makes it sound like we won't have to wait for BlizzConline to hear about the Burning Crusade coming to Classic!

      Blizzard have timed their releases very tightly, as Classic Naxxramas also seems to hold/produce a river of souls of its own... however a very different one than the Shadowlands Maw version. In both cases souls are going to their doom, although in Classic at least they get to have their bodies back!

      Source.

      Source.
      Just in case you're not quite sure what you're looking at, that's a whoole lot of players running back to the raid after death, in a very organized fashion, and it really does look like, and to some extent is, a river of souls.
      And here's the real one from the Maw for comparison:

      Interestingly, none of the souls in retail seem to be screaming about having to go back to Naxx and the Four Horsemen.
