FL Tank Communication 101

Freelance Tank Communication 101

Synopsis

A streamlined process that addresses mob handling of all types, as well as facilitates smooth tank transitions for both single-boss and simultaneous multi-boss encounters.
  • Standardized hotkey setups to ensure clear and succinct communication.
  • Simple implementation:
  • Two hotkeys
  • Audio/Text Trigger
  • Channel(s), for multi-boss encounters
Hotkeys

Two hotkeys:  One when actively tanking.  The other when disc(s) duration is close to ending and a swap is required.

Modify actively tanking/swap hotkeys as the situation and raid assignment dictates.

Hotkey Line Syntax:  /# /channel [ optional event specific message ] -- [ Actively Tanking / Swap message ]
Remove/Replace /# when and where applicable as it reflects your raid assignment and channel setup.

The /#'s are for key efficiency:
  • Remove /#'s for /rs, /ooc, /shout, and you'll be setup for single-boss assignment.
  • Replace /# with the channel setup for multi-boss assignment as it applies to the situation.
  • Replace /# with /gs or remove it if your default chat is set to group, and you'll be setup for tanking trash adds.
  • EQ throws a little chat error for /#'s.  But you can filter this to your spam window and never see it.
  • For workaround details, refer to the Filter Unwanted Messages in EQ post
Actively Tanking: TANKING -> %T

Example:
/# TANKING -> %T
/# /say TANKING -> %T
/# /rs TANKING -> %T
/# /ooc TANKING -> %T
/# /shout TANKING -> %T


Swap: TANK SWAP!

Example:
/# TANK SWAP!
/# /say TANK SWAP!
/# /rs TANK SWAP!
/# /ooc TANK SWAP!
/# /shout TANK SWAP!


Encounters


TRASH ADDS

When part of floater tank contingent for add duty, direct your actively tanking key towards group only.  The swap key is unused. 


SINGLE-BOSS

When part of a main tank line-up; in a single-boss encounter, the process is as follows:

Actively tanking and swaps are communicated across three channels:
    /raidsay
    /ooc
    /shout
MULTI-BOSS

When part of a main tank line-up; in a multi-boss encounter, the process is isolated slightly to avoid cross-talk with other line-ups.

Operate in a unique channel created at the time that relates to the event.

Modify/direct actively tanking/swap hotkeys into the unique channel and/or as instructed.



Audio/Text Trigger
 

Pattern: TANK SWAP!

GTT Trigger File: tank_swap.gtt

Audio File: tank_swap.wav

Thanks Mistatk.

Can you adjust your /say key/portion.  Noticed in the parse last week on E6 in Conv it's set incorrectly:

[Sat May 12 23:18:00 2012] Mistatk says, 'SWAP'

That won't trigger other tanks GTT.

No space between swap and exclamation point.  You'll know it's correct when it fires your own GTT trigger.

My name is Croydan I have all but 1 piece of TBM RAID GEAR. I use gina I have triggers I was with SR left on very good terms have been told by Stell that I can reap in 3 months. 105 warrior Full aa's 12616, trials of MM complete 6/6, already adopted you hoteys for warrior class. Have Heal me HK and Tank Swap HK. Been playing for 16 years. Croydan is my main yes I do have other toons 105 shammy, wizard, enchanter, shadow Knight Fully agree even if not in MTO if Mob is loose grab it if only long enough for someone from mto to grab if all wipped TANK IT. Also Have Gamparse. I was a raid leader in a previous guild so yes know how to set up a raid if that is ever needed,always on time I do not Raid on Christmas , Easter, Thanksgiving, or Family Birthdays that is wife, daughter and son. The way I see it is if people find it important enough not to raid on supper bowl sunday which is not a holiday well enough said. I am a retired Marine and I am disabled fighting for the constitution and the right we have in this country and That will hopefully be all that I will say about politics, and religion. I will help anyone not just in raid. My spelling is not perfect all the time I do miss punctuation. I use mumble currently if there is another voice communication to be used let me know.

Croydan, good to see you read the hotkeys, etc. and you have nice gear for sure...I am sure Furro will work you into the MTO as he can...

Furro rarely (ever?) misses raids...regardless of the day...but people do what they do and Freelance just chugs along.

Freelance doesn't use voice chat but some are in vent or other chat systems...nothing official.

As for politics, etc. in FLRAIDS chat...it is basically non-existent...more focused on the raiding and helping others that raid Freelance.  There is a good deal of joking among the folks in channel at times. Some deal with it better than others but most people are just having fun and nothing is done in a mean spirited manner IMO.

Glad to see you interested in Freelance...
