Is it possible to get the instance of a Player by name?
I'd like to do this without having to target the player. I get the name of a player that is in the zone from the combat log and I'd like to determine their class. Actually, I just want to know if they are a creep or a freep. Any thoughts or direction on this would be greatly appreciated. TIA :)

Far as I know, you can only access information about the local player and the fellowship members.

Well, if you're not concerned about doing it programmatically, just use /friend add. As a plus side, you can use it to find out the classes of people on your side as well.

Hmmmm.... Thanks Moebius. The intent was to Identify Friend or Foe so your suggestion makes sense after a fashion :rolleyes:

Characters of the opposide side will show level. Like "Orcreaver, level 75". Determing classes I'd say is just getting the experience to recognise them :)
