How to Use Captain’s Assistant in Swords of Legends Online

How to Use the Captain’s Assistant

By now its no secret that I’ve been playing Swords of Legends Online quite a bit, especially with my little guild in-game called ‘We the Peepo’, but one of the constant questions I get – even with videos released on my part on how to do it, is a text version of how to use Captain’s Assistant, which one could equate to that of DBM (Deadly Boss Mod) from World of Warcraft.

To start things off, Captain’s Assistant needs to be activated. To do this, you can head on over under your mini-map, and look for the icon in between the sword and the picture. It should look like a monster or demon, this is your Captain’s Assistant window.

 You should see the Captain’s Assistant System UI pop up, but that isn’t enough just yet. You need to click on the Gear icon located on the “Captain’s Assistant: Boss Ev…” title, in order to activate it. This will allow for event tracking and give permission to the system to see the timeline for bosses, monsters, players, etc. 

Now that you’ve activated the Event Monitoring History, you’ll be able to pick and choose which event you want to add for shout outs if this is what you want for your team, or simply for yourself. You can try it out on a “Drill” or “Practice” dungeon such as Frostbitten Path, and see how the boss appears. The timeline will not be in real-time if you keep it up, but you can see the skills he does in real-time in the event section. From there you can right click on a skill that the Boss has done, right click on it, and simply create an Event for this skill. 

From here, it’s pretty forward. If you click on the Event Manager button, you should now have created a “Practice – Frostbitten Path” Category, assuming you’ve followed this guide exactly as it is. If not, either way, it should have created a brand new Category for that dungeon, along with the Boss and the Skill that you’ve decided to monitor. You can now add text if you want it on your screen, along with the sound that you want it to make, if you want any sound at all – however, you can’t really hear them until you click on the Event Value Configuration. Right now there are up to 14 sounds, so to listen to each of them you’ll need to do {sound 1}, or {sound 2} and so on and so forth.

The same for Emojis, but those are easier as you can see them in the Chat Box in general, as when you select an emoji, it’ll automatically transform to the code it is. A personal favorite of mine is #52, which means the emoji code would be {emoji 52}. You can click on the “?” icon in the text chat for the configuration to learn more about what you can do with this. My recommendation is not to include emojis, but the option is there. 

The settings are pretty simple on the monitoring list, you can hide the monitoring skill from the list that will pop up when in combat, you can deactivate the event entirely, add the skill to a Priority List by putting a number above 0, so let’s say 1, 2, 3. For Order of starting HP values, you can manually add when to start monitoring a skill, if you put 90, then at 90% HP of a Boss, that skill will begin monitoring. Time of First Activation and Time Sequence are not usually needed, but for First Activation you can manually add in milliseconds when to monitor after a certain % of HP. So if you add 20000, then after 90%, after 20 seconds, it will begin monitoring. This is especially useful for certain skills that begin at specific percentages of Boss health pools, such as special mechanics at 70%, 50%, 30% and so on. The remaining value entries from Min. rate, Max rate. Avg. rate and so on, are not necessary but you can tinker with them if it is something that you feel can better the tracking of a skill.

Additionally, you can adjust the settings of the Captain’s Assistant on your end by clicking on the Gear Icon which opens up the Settings menu. You can do things like turning off all notification sounds, removing the pop-up prompts, turn off tracking, allowing for you to see other people’s captain’s assistant as the recipient, as well as turning off other people seeing your own (though this can be manually adjusted per tracker by changing the Hint Target from Team Members to Only Me). 

By clicking on the Prompts Database, you’ll be able to configure default actions when you’re tracking an action. For example, for Skill Events if you have {event}{sound 5}{target}{tracker 12 1} like I do, every time you manually add a Skill to the monitoring, it will have the text be filled with this code. 

How to Import Events

That should be as basic as it can get, and still to the point. I’ve included my own Captain’s Assistant, which you can have for yourself, below. Just simply Download the Zip file, unzip it wherever you want, and place these in your CombatEventMonitor folder that’s located in Gameforge -> Swords of Legends Online -> Interface -> Addons. When in-game, simply Right-Click on the Event Manager and click on “Import Event from File”. I’ve also included the upcoming Jade Palace Normal Mode in this.
