What it does
Follower is a very simple addon that I developed to alleviate one of my
sources of annoyance when playing both a hunter and a priest character.
My priest is on a second computer, and I (like many other 2boxers) have
a key set up to follow my main (hunter) character. Occasionally, my
priest gets caught on scenery or lags out and fails to take a corner.
I used to carry on running and look a few minutes later to discover that
my priest is several minutes of running away from me, or road pizza to
some wandering mob.
This addon makes the following character send a whisper to a main character
whenever autofollow breaks. I find this saves me a great deal of frustration.
Unzip this package into your WoW Interface\AddOns directory.
You should have an Interface\AddOns\Follower directory that contains:
* README.TXT (this file)
When you log in, check the Addons button in the character select screen
to make sure Follower is installed and active.
Type /sgf [the character that you want autofollow break messages sent to]
Now whenever autofollow ends the specified character will be whispered to
so you can immediately take action to regather your follower.
