[v1.3.0+] Pride Goeth

I swear I remember playing an early pre-1.0.0 beta version that didn't have those half dozen or so thrice-damned rares/elites/randbosses/whatever-the-right-term is on every. single. frakking. level of the Orc Prides. A historical source dive doesn't support me on that, though; perhaps a bug elsewhere in the code that was eventually fixed?

At any rate, what I remember of those old Prides I remember fondly, so I decided to try whipping up an addon to reproduce the effect. Verdict so far? Doesn't help much, but it helps some. And so, as my humble contribution to the latest iteration of the perennial "what to do about the Orc Prides" thread, :mrgreen: I submit my new Pride Goeth addon, which prevents randbosses from spawning anywhere in the Orc Prides.

[And no, obviously this one is not a candidate for inclusion in ZOmnibus. :wink: ]

[Technical info:]

Code: Select all

Well, them and the summoned swarms of skeleton master archers and armoured skeleton warriors. And the heavy bone giants lobbing boulders at you. And the wyrms and drakes breathing in your face. And the pyromancers and cryomancers popping off spells at you from all directions. And the Battle Call-ers yanking you out of your tactical chokepoint and dropping you in the middle of a swarm of orcs. Y'know, little things like that. :roll:

No, "popcorn" is not an apt description of anything in the Orc Prides.
