[Bot] Tyrael - A raiding botbase!PureRotation Team presents
Tyrael - A raiding botbase!
What is Tyrael?
Tyrael is a raid-bot alike alternative botbase for HonorBuddy. It is designed as a framework in which a Combat Routine executes, as quick as possible.
Who continues the Tyrael support and development?
Weischbier is the orignal author, but unfortunately has decided to leave this community. He gave permission to the PureRotation team to take over and maintain the Tyrael Project. After some struggles on the forums regarding Tyrael and its backlist it was removed from the forums once again. We started a discussion with the Pure Team and decided to keep support and maintenance of Tyrael within the Pure team and we will remove the blacklist of paid routines.
Are we happy to support paid routines?
No. Donations is acceptable, but paying or donating to receive premium versions is in the Pure teams eyes still wrong. Keep this in mind when using Tyrael.
What does the current GUI look like?
Below is a screenshot of the current graphical user interface. Via this interface, you will be able to customize the settings for this BotBase.
Special thanks go out to the following persons and teams;
- Weischbier - Original author of Tyrael and allround awesome!
- PureRotation Team <3
- Apoc for all his work and Raid Bot.
- Mirabis for his awesome work on Minify.
What should I do with the Ticks per Second?
Ticks per Second should be about equal or less of which your FrameRate (CTRL+R to view in WoW) is. If your PC can handle it, the higher the TPS the better your Routine will work. It's just very minor difference above 30 though.
So if your WoW never goes below 60 FPS, set Tyrael to 60 TPS. If your WoW never goes under 45, set it to 45. Test it in a heavy raid environment, cause flying around your FPS is probaly ALOT higher then in raids during bossfights.
What should I do with the LockSelector?
It should be enabled, as it improves the performance of your CR. If it drops the framerate too much, the combat routine you use probaly does not support a framelock. Disable it then. Prime examples of LockSelector supported routines are listed here.
How to download?
- Open your favourite browser and download and install TortoiseSVN.
- Go to the folder which HonorBuddy.exe is located.
- From there, go to the Bots folder.
- Create a new folder here with the name: Tyrael.
- On the newly created folder, do rightclick and select "Checkout".
- Under URL of repository, you enter the URL of the Tyrael repository (See below).
- Press OK. Now it will download the latest version.
- Make sure to regularly reload this folder by doing rightclick and then Update.
- Grab the zipfile! I recommend using the SVN option.
Where can I grab a copy of Tyrael?
You can grab the latest copy of Tyrael from the attachment on this post, or if you prefer a SVN ... When downloading this botbase, you acknowledge that you've agreed with, read and understood the first and second post in this thread.

Frequently asked questions
What is/does the HardLock, SoftLock, LockSelector, FrameLock and TPS (Ticks per second)?
Honorbuddy is able to inject ONE action into the WoW client per frame executed by WoW (30 times if WoW runs at 30 FPS). Framelock fixes this by keeping one frame stuck until HB is finished with it. This results in the ability to perform multiple actions per frame instead of one. The result is that HB is able to perform a LOT more actions per second with a framelock than without (as its able to run all required actions in one frame instead of in MANY).
If an action takes too long, and the frame is still locked when the next frame is ready you will have the well-known stutter/lag. This is a problem with the code running in a framelock.
A 'Tick' in Honorbuddy is one full loop of processing through all of its actions (i.e. to loop through all plugins and through the combat routine).
The TPS (ticks per second) in Tyrael is a setting to tell Honorbuddy how often to attempt to loop through all of the code every second. This is limited to the speed the plugin/CR code takes to execute.
For example, if a combat routine takes 50ms to complete a full loop with no plugins running, the maximum amount of ticks which can be performed within 1 second is 20 (1000ms in a second. 1000/50 = 20). To benefit from the full maximum of 200 TPS, all plugin and CR code must execute at a maximum of 5ms (which is near impossible).
What's the difference between HardLock and SoftLock?
There is actually a quite important difference between the both of them. Advise on which one to use, is something I will not provide. If you're serious enough to play with it, you should do a few dummy tests with one of them enabled and see what works the best for you (DPS, HPS and FPS). There is quite a difference between routines, on how they react to both locks.
Both of the options are a FrameLock method!
- Hardlock: This locks Honorbuddy, BotBase and Routine in 1 frame per tick (This should in theory provide the best DPS/HPS).
- Softlock: This does not lock Honorbuddy, but locks only the BotBase and routine in 1 frame per tick.
What is/does the HealMode in Tyrael?
The healmode allows Tyrael to heal while not in actual combat. Recommended for routines like Oracle and Leaves.
Help! My hotkeys aren't working ... why?
Something hijacked the hotkeys and/or its binding. A few known cases are listed below, but it's not limited to these programs only!
- AMD Gaming Involved Control Center (Raptr)
Is the Tyrael announcement for Pause/Unpause safe?
Yes it is, as safe as it's always been. It has nothing to do with the famous CHAT_MSG_ADDON and CHAT_MSG_* systems. Tyrael prints locally to the frame, and it doesn't trigger an event.
Can we detect if this botbase is paused?
Yes you can, you can use the public bool IsPaused to check ... True, false, you know the drill!
Is there any personal detail's being collected?
Yes. The botbase communicates with a statistics counter once every day when you use it. This is in order for me (nomnomnom) to keep track on the amount of users this botbase has (And to decide to keep it maintained or not). The only information collected is the date-time and location (City or wider). IP addresses are masked, I do not collect these. The only person with access to the statistics is me (nomnomnom). If you disagree with this, do not use this botbase. Keep in mind that when visiting a website, they collect more data then this will ever do.

some developers have premium versions of their CC's if you donate to them or pay them. It's actually messed up because they can't distinguish the difference between a donation and getting paid. I won't say names but they will have a MINUMUM donation such as $10 for a bronze version and like $40 donation for a platinum version.
Websters dictionary defines a donation:
a : the making of a gift especially to a charity or public institution
b : a free contribution : gift

But in all honesty it's not that big of a deal because they have a free version available. If you would like that extra "edge" in PvE and PvP then the paid version is the way to go. So I'm on both sides since you aren't forced to donate to them.
Take Tuanha for instance. His free CC's are AMAZING

amasing maybe a bit much as singular on a ww monk will acheive the same and usualy far better results than tuanha monk cc. And as soon as the were a charge to use the better version I stopped using it all together as personally I think it is wrong to say "Hey I have made a cc, want it to work aswell as it can well you'll have to pay me". I am fortunate enough to still have tyrael in my HB folder and have to say it works flawlessly I use lazy raider also, Tyrael is easier to setup however neither are rocket science. Thanks for bringing this back for us all however I completely support the blacklisting of certain routines, Not that my opinion on this will matter to anyone :-). Goodluck with the project and also pure rotation if it is anything as good as CLU it will be awesome.

Tyrael download is up, blacklist is removed.

So I've been wondering. What is the differences between Tyrael and LazyRaider?
