What is RBM?
With Cataclysm new heroic instances came and we all know the dificulty is now much harder than it was on wotlk. Many people are forced to go 5 man heros with random groups. The problem: Some of the randoms might not know what the boss mechanics is. In Addition, it might be he is to afraid of asking because he might be kicked. To solve that you can use RBM. RBM explains the boss mechanics of the boss in front of you.
How does it work?
When you get in an instance via the dungeon finder the first boss will be loaded automatically and - if configured - the RobBossMods Window will appear Left-Click on the Minimap Icon/ Titan Panel also toggles the RobBossMods Window and you can send the tactics for the current chosen boss to either Party/Raid,Yourself,Officer or Guild. Right-Click on the Icon/TP and you will go the setting section.
In the RobBossMods Window you can choose a boss manually and send the tactics. If you target a boss who is supported by RBM then the current Boss will automaticlly set. Also, after a boss died, RBM will load the next boss automaticlly ( only works in linear instances ).
Furthermore there is the possibility to edit the pre-made tactics for each boss. Especially the raid tactics - which i did NOT deliver with this addon (because i think you need some kind of voice communication for raids ) - can be edited and then used in your random raids.
People in your party can do !boss in /p chat or whisper you !boss. In the first case you will post the current boss tactics to /p and in the other case you whisper the tactics to the player who asked.
