24.18 Attack Behaviours

Behaviors take some of your professions' basic attacks and gives you optional messages. In order to learn a behaviour you must find a scroll that is attuned to the profession of your choice. 

For example, you may have a scroll that allows you to learn volcanic priest attacks or drunken monk attacks.

Behaviour scrolls can be traded and sold on the promo market (HELP PROMO MARKET).

The behaviour related syntax is as follows:

BEHAVIOUR LIST
This command lists all of the behavior scrolls that you have redeemed and are available to your character. You can use the activate command to switch between them.

BEHAVIOUR FOR SALE
This will return a list of behaviours currently for sale, if any.

BEHAVIOUR PURCHASE <behaviour> <type>
If you have a behaviour token, this will allow you to trade it in for a single behaviour type. See below for a list of behaviours and types.

BEHAVIOUR REDEEM <scroll>
After you have purchased a scroll, you must read and learn how to use the optional attacks offered from this scroll. This will use up the scroll and cannot be undone, but you will be able to permanently use the new attack messages.

BEHAVIOUR SCROLL LIST
This command lists any behavior scrolls your character has, but has not learned.

BEHAVIOUR <type> ACTIVATE
This command turns on the behavior pack if you have redeemed it.

BEHAVIOUR DEACTIVATE
Deactivates all behaviour messages you have activated.

BEHAVIOUR <behaviour> TYPE <type> LOOK
This command will show you what all the different types of messages look like. For example: BEHAVIOUR drunken TYPE monk_basic LOOK

BEHAVIOUR <name> SHOW
A brief description of what type of attacks are in this behavior.

BEHAVIOUR SCROLL <type> SHOW
Some of the basic information about this type of attack.

CONFIG BEHAVIOR <ON|OFF>
By default all messages are seen. If you don't want to see any of the custom messages, you can turn them off. This only hides the player-vs-player attack messages -- messages are always shown when attacking mobs.
