World Of Warcraft Bots
You are using Overseer at your own risk.
Overseer is a utility for use with World of Warcraft for educational purposes
only. Overseer allows you to track almost any creature or person in the game on
your minimap, as if you were a hunter. It may or may not be considered a "hack"
and may or may not result in your account being banned, for which I take no
This utility is designed to work with:
World of Warcraft v1.4.0 (4341). [US]
This utility may also work with:
World of Warcraft v1.3.1 (4297). [US]
World of Warcraft v1.3.0 (4284). [US]
World of Warcraft v1.2.4 (4222). [US]
World of Warcraft v1.2.3 (4211). [EU]
The following can be tracked:
Slimes / Misc
Q. The program is not allowing me to click any of the CheckBoxes, what can I do?
A. This program makes use of pointers that are sometimes very unstable. Try
walk- ing a few steps, changing zones, running indoors or outdoors, logging in
and out, closing and reopening World of Warcraft, and even restarting your
computer (in that order) if you cannot get these to work. Please contact me with
any bugs you may be experiencing, or if you are having any trouble. Contact info
is provided at the beginning of this document.
Q. What does "File -> Keep Tracking On" do?
A. Since this program only writes to WoW's memory when you check or uncheck a
checkbox it does not have to be running for the tracking abilities to be enabled.
By setting "Keep Tracking On" to On (a checkmark will appear next to the menu
item), the program will not reset your Tracking and Finding abilities to zero
when the program exits. By setting it to Off, as soon as you close the program,
you will no longer be able to track anything. This may be useful if you have to
quickly turn Tracking/Finding off to avoid detection, though I don't see that
happening anytime soon.
Q. WHat does "File -> Automatically Update Pointer" do?
A. Since the 1.3.0 (4284) patch, many users have been complaining that this
program crashes WoW frequently and without notice. By keeping this setting off,
Overseer will not continuously access WoW's memory in any way. It will find a
pointer at program start, and then you need to manually update it by either
setting a Hotkey via "File -> Hotkeys..." or by clicking "File -> Update Pointer"
each time you change continents or enter/exit an instance. It will then loop
until another valid pointer is found and re-enable Tracking/Finding. I recommend
only turning this setting on if you are using this program with any WoW Version
before 1.3.0 (4284).
Q. What does "File -> Update Pointer" do?
A. Read above.
Q. Can you please explain Hotkeys?
Hotkeys will allow you to make changes to this program quickly without
minimizing WoW. There are 16 Hotkeys available in this version:
- Toggle Tracking On/Off: Temporarily turns tracking off or restores it.
-Update Pointer: Use this to re-enable tracking after changing continents or
exiting or entering an instance.
- Close Program: This will immediately close Overseer.
- Enable All: Turns all tracking on.
- Disable All: Turns all tracking off.
- Enable All Except Critters: Turns all tracking except critters on.
- Toggle Track x: Check or uncheck the corresponding box.
To set a hotkey, go to "File -> Hotkeys..." and select the action you'd like to
hotkey from the list. Next, click the "Set Hotkey" button and then press a key
or combination of keys. The hotkey will be set when you press a key other than
Ctrl, Alt, or Shift.
For example, if I wanted to set "Close Program" to Hotkey Ctrl+Shift+F12, I
would first go to "File -> Hotkeys..." and select 'Set "Close Program" Hotkey'
from the dropdown list. Next, I would click the "Set Hotkey" button and notice
that its text changes from "Set Hotkey" to "Press Key Combination or Click to
Erase Hotkey." I would then press and hold Ctrl, press and hold Shift, and press
F12 to set the Hotkey. If I later wanted to clear that hotkey, I would select it
from the list and click the "Set Hotkey" button twice to clear it.
Q. I absolutely cannot live without this program and I would like to show you my
undying gratitude! How would I do that!?
A. Donations are always welcome, though never necessary. My paypal address is

Changelog for Overseer:
- Changed the hotkey setup, added more hotkey-able actions
- Added functionality for Wow US Client 1.4.0 (4341)
- Added Track Mechanicals
- Removed the console, for now. Will add it back later if I get a lot of
Changelog for the former WoWTracking (Overseer's father program):
- Added Hotkeys.
- Gave user option to turn off Auto-Updating of the pointer. This should make
WoW crash less. (I've been questing for the past four hours while
updating this program and have not crashed once, though I'm not sure if it is
fixed or not.)
- Reworked the OpenProcess method slightly in hopes of a fix to the crashes that
have been happening to just about everyone, lately. (Note: this has not been
tested as of the writing of this document, so this release is still considered a
beta release in need of testing.)
- Added ability to save the text residing in the Console as a *.log or *.txt
- Fixed an issue with the console adding text to the point where the user could
not scroll down.
- Added ability to keep tracking on or off after program is closed.
- Added Console
- Beefed up the reliability. It should automatically re-find a pointer and
re-enable tracking after changing instances/continents.
- Changed GUI slightly.
- Added compatibility for WoW US Client version 1.3.0 (4284).
- Bypassed WoW's new Anti-WriteProcessMemory protection (which also makes
WoW.exe not show up in TSearch).
- Added the ability to track Slimes and other "Not Specified" creatures.
- Added compatibility for WoW EU Client version 1.2.3 (4211). [Thanks to alklas]
- Will remember which Client Version you chose.
- Added About dialog.
- Fixed a bug where tracking would continue to work after program was closed.
- Added the ability to find Herbs, Minerals, and Treasure.
