If you’re an online gaming fan looking for a community to play, share information, and hang out with, Discord is the right platform for you.
Discord has long been an online gaming favorite because of the tools and features it provides to make online gaming interactive. Discord also lets you link your account to bots, to automate specific tasks in your Discord.
Some of Discord’s most popular gaming communities are dedicated to World of Warcraft and Raid: Shadow Legends. People in these communities explore different gaming characters, tactics, and information through tools and add-ons.
One such tool is RaidBot. RaidBot is a program that simulates a game’s characters allowing users to compare gears and sets and improve the character’s performance.
But how to use RaidBot on Discord?
Using RaidBot on Discord is straightforward. The first step is to link the bot to your account. After, begin prompting simulation activities using specific commands. For example, enter “-boss ‘name’” to see the boss’s skill information. Enter “–invite” or “–buffs/debuffs’ name’.” The initial command displays a link for RaidBot, and the latter displays information about the buffs or debuffs by name.
Read to the end to learn more about RaidBot commands and how to use them on Discord.
Overview of RaidBot on Discord
As noted above, RaidBot is a program or a bot that allows users to simulate their gaming characters and compare gear, performance, encounter styles, talents, and other factors.
This bot replicates the environmental and statistical conditions of the game so users can analyze different aspects of the game and optimize their characters’ performance.
RaidBot has various tools to enable simulation. Examples include “Top Gear,” which allows gear comparisons for your character.
To use “Top Gear,” you’ll select all the talent and gear you want to compare and import to the RaidBot for comparison against various in-built combinations.
Note that you’ll need to install a SimulationCraft add-on when using RaidBot to import characters from your gaming server to the bot for simulation.
Another helpful RaidBot feature is “Talents Loadouts.” This feature helps you simulate talent combinations against different sets of gears.
Select specific builds from your saved list to use this feature and then feed the information to the “Talents Loadout.” Alternatively, use the “Generate Combinations” button.
Other RaidBot features include comparing the performance of enchants and gems against gears and finding the best gear upgrade with the “Droptimizer.”
With the “Droptimizer,” you can select a content type and see all the potential gear upgrades you can get.
Next, we’ll cover the steps to add the RaidBot bot to your account and the basic commands to operate it.
