Description
Might have issues if you install from Plugin compendium, be aware. That's because the folder is allocated in a wrong place. The right folder of PersonalStrats folder is: Lord Of The Rings Online/Plugins/SaelythPlugins/here

Detailed info and pictures in: http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.php?474176-Plugin-PersonalStrats&p=6353687#post6353687

What is about?
Well this plugin should help to those doing their "First time" (and also if you forget any specific debuff, you can easily check). In this plugin i provide an strategy for each fight (Every strategy has been tested and they work just fine) But if you don't want to use that strategy, the plugin still can be useful to check every enemy skill or even loot.

Have you ever realize how much times you need to wipe to learn a fight? how many different strategys there are over internet? how many times someone just disconnects and when you invite a new person he doesn't know the fight or the mechanics involved because is his first time there? Even if you are an excellent raider there must be a first time for every boss mechanism.

I'm not very good at speaking and i'm not english, my typos are... well, awful. but i'm proud of the work i've been doing the last weeks Raiding just to get screenshots, it makes an interesting excuse to raid and i hope someone can find this useful.

Features
- Detailed Maps.
- Detailed pulls strategies.
- Detailed enemies debuffs, special skills and buffs (and how to stop them).
- Loot tables, check what items drops from each boss right next to the chest.
- Chat commands, send to chat previously saved texts.

The future of this plugin.
- First of all i am just doing the guides with all the info.
- And later, i expect this to be not soon would be to get automatic responses to some events. (For example a boss says "Stay closer, yadda yadda" and the plugin will make that a button in the center of the screen flash, clicking that sends a message to the chat that says "AoE, run away!" with red words). It's a beta idea but i think it could work, sadly still requires that a human click on the button to send info to the chat, can't be automatic, but a good leader shouldn't have troubles with it.

Thankyou
The plugin uses a file to save the position of all the windows (including the little icon) and also the size of it. It's possible that somehow the plugin wasn't unable to Save the info of any of the values and then it launchs the error. I have 2 possible solutions for it.

1: Find the file: /PluginData/limbot/Silverlode/Kimstar/PersonalStratsSettings.plugindata
- Delete that file, the plugin should create it from scratch next time you load it.
- Don't worry about weird issues for deleting this. That file only saves the position of the windows and the only result deleting it will be: all windows size/position reset to Top Left.

2: If the error appears because it's the first time that you run this plugin, don't worry, ignore the message, there shouldn't be issues except the mentioned before (positioning of the windows). As soon as you log out the plugin will Save all the windows position values. Hence the second time loading it you should have no message.

I hope that helps with it.

Thanks for making this. You obviously have put a lot of work into it and it's very helpful. The screenshots of all the debuffs are particularly helpful. Please forgive me my lack of computer knowledge, but I tried editing the chat commands in the plugin folder, but my windows doesn't know how to open a .lua file. Is there a program I need to download to open it? I tried downloading lua from their website, but it didn't know how to open a .gz file either.
It won't be needed anymore in the next Build, i finally found a way to save and load the information right from inside the plugin. However now the issue is that i am unable to send them to chat. As soon as i sort that out i will update the plugin.

In the meantime, just in case if you want. You can open the chatcommands file with any notepad. Just do a right click in the file: open with, choose notepad.

I will consider it, Skirmishes is something that i don't have in mind yet though, since i want to finnish Rift, Helegrod and ToO tier 2 guides as priority... And after that i would do the 6-mans and finally the 3-mans.

After all that, i would do the guides for skirmishes.

love reading these guides

if you wanted to implement Pineleaf's skirmish guides, I'm pretty sure he'll let you. probably have to include him in your credits tab
