KissAssist turns any EverQuest class into a personal assistant, like an advanced mercenary. It's a popular choice for multi-boxers due to its flexibility and easy-to-read configuration (.ini) files.

This wiki page serves as the instruction manual. The latest version of KissAssist can be downloaded on the resource page. Other useful links include the .ini library, discussion thread, discussion forum, and support forum.

Getting Started with KissAssist

Creating your KissAssist .ini

Without having a target selected, type "/mac kissassist"

KissAssist will generate an .ini file that looks like "KissAssist_Charactername.ini" in your macros folder. Once the macro ends, you can proceed to edit the .ini to your liking. You must edit the .ini for KissAssist to work, it does nothing out of the box.

KissAssist settings are editable in your KissAssist_ToonName.ini

NOTE: If you have characters on different servers with the SAME NAME, you can maintain separate ini files for each character by renaming the KissAssist_ToonName.ini file to reflect the server.
Example: Joe Blow has a mage called Megamage on Xegony and Cazic Thule servers. He would need to have two separate ini files of KissAssist_Xegony_Megamage.ini and KissAssist_Cazic_Megamage.ini.

Starting KissAssist

Basic usage

Target your main assist and type "/mac kissassist" and kissassist will automatically use your current target as the assist and use the predefined role set in your .ini. Alternately, you can make specifications on startup:

/mac kissassist [KissRole] [AssistsName] [AssistHealth%]


/mac kissassist assist Bob
/mac kissassist assist Bob 98
/mac kissassist puller BobTank
/mac kissassist tank

For tank characters, you can have them assist themselves, which will make the tank decide which mobs to target. It's generally a good idea to have your tank decide which mobs he is to tank if a real player is not going to be the main assist. Characters with Tank Roles will default to themselves as MA. You should have only 1 character in your group set in a Tank role and all other characters should be in an Assist or Puller roll.

For all other characters, assist the main assist or your tank if they are the main assist.

The optional [KissRole] startup modifier is used to define which role you will be in when starting KissAssist. If you choose not to define a role, KissAssist will default to whatever role you have selected in your .ini file.

The optional [AssistsName] startup modifier is used to declare who you will assisting. This can either be someone else, or if using either puller or tank modes, you can declare yourself the main assist. You MUST have a target selected if you choose not to declare a main assist when starting Kiss.

The optional [AssistHealth%] startup modifier is used to define specific melee assist settings. By default (without using the modifier), it will be 95, or whatever your .ini defined values are in your Melee settings. This setting only applies to melee and /petattack.

Tip: Using EQBC or DanNet you can create a social hotkey to automatically start your other characters in assist mode to assist your primary character. Simply create a hotkey with one of the following commands. EQBC: /bca //mac kissassist assist BobTank DanNet: /dgtell all /mac kissassist assist BobTank

Alternate ini files: You can also tell KissAssist to load an alternate ini file. If your wizard has a separate ini to use ice nukes instead of fire nukes or your tank wants to run a DPS setup on easier content, you can just save another ini file and load that instead of your defaults, e.g.

/mac kissassist ini kissassist_Name_IceNukes.ini
Optional Startup Paramaters
Parameter Usage Example
ini /mac kissassist ini MyCustomFileName.ini
forcealias /mac kissassist forcealias
ma /mac kissassist ma MainAssistName
assistat /mac kissassist assistat 95
parse /mac kissassist parse 60
scanini /mac kissassist scanini
path /mac kissassist path ADVPathPathName
debug /mac kissassist debug
debugall /mac kissassist debugall

KissAssist_ToonName.ini setup

Once the KissAssist_CharacterName.ini has been created in your Macros folder, edit it with your favorite text editor.

[General] Settings

Default roles can be assigned in your KissAssist_ToonName.ini or overridden at startup using the modifiers listed above

Role Values - Use the following list to determine and define your default role.

  • Role=Assist - Default role of assisting Main Tank on mobs.
  • Role=Tank - Sets up tanking feature and will target and attack any aggressive mob that comes into defined melee range. Target (or declare) yourself as MA.
  • Role=PetTank - This role allows for a pet class (Mage/Necromancer/Beastlord) to 'have their pet tank'.
  • Role=PullerPetTank - This role allows for a pet class (Mage/Necromancer/Beastlord) to BOTH 'pull and have their pet tank'.
  • Role=Puller - This role basically duplicates the oldie but goldie puller.mac. It will pull mobs within a certain radius back to camp for your party to kill. Target Main Assist for this role.
  • Role=PullerTank - This role combines pulling and tanking. The character will pull mobs back to camp then engage them when within defined melee distance. Target your self for Main Assist with this role.
  • Role=Hunter - This role duplicates the old hunter mac. It will run your character around a zone and hunt any or predefined mobs with the pull radius. Target yourself for Main Assist with this role. ** This setting will ignore any Mob HP % you may have defined in your DPS section in the .ini **
  • Role=HunterPetTank - This role duplicates the old hunter mac. This role allows for a pet class (Mage/Necromancer/Beastlord) to 'have their pet tank'. It will run your character around a zone and hunt any or predefined mobs with the pull radius.
  • Role=Petassist - This is mainly for Pallys, Rangers, Beastlords and SKs asssiting Mage pets tanking . It turns off melee so they just send in pets and cast.
  • For Manual Role/Mode see the Miscellaneous section.

[DPS] Settings

  • In the DPS section, you'll want to align your spells in order in which they cast. They don't need to be in order, but it helps to visually see which spells are going to be cast first and which spells will follow.
  • If using DPSOn=1, KissAssist will cast each spell starting when the Mob Health is less than the Spell/AA's MobHealth% and pausing for the DPSInterval timer that starts when the fist spell starts to cast and will pause casting until the timer ends. Once the Mob's Health gets below the next Spell/AA's MobHealth% number that Spell/AA is added to the rotation making a snowball of damage that gets bigger and bigger as more Spell/AA's are added to the rotation. Dot's will be reapplied when they drop off the target. If you have an order that you want the Spell/AA's to cast in, you must use a different MobHealth% for each. An example would be first spell at 99 next at 98 then later in the rotation you might have a 76, 75, 74. once the target gets below 74 all the spells will cast in order from highest MobHealth% to the lowest tying to recast a spell if it gets resisted or interrupted as to not break the sequence. --good for debuff stacking using the |Once tag. If you use spells with the %health 98,98,98 70,70 and 30,30 you will not know what order it will pick, the 2nd or 3rd spell with the same %health may cast first.
  • If using DPSOn=2, KissAssist will cast in a sequential order, a chain of Spell/AAs starting with the highest MobHealth% to the lowest, with no casting delay/pause. As soon as the chain of casting starts, the DPSInterval timer starts. If it takes 12 seconds to cast all the spells in the chain and the DPSInterval is set to 10 you will see no delay in recasting the chain. If DPSInterval is set to 20, there will be an 8 second delay/pause before the chain will recast. If the Mob dies in the middle of a chain, the chain starts over for the new target. If the |Once tag is used with a Spell/AA, it will no longer be cast and will be skipped if the chain is cast a second or third time on the same target. If the target is new, the Spell/AA will cast again, but only once for the new target. If Dot's are used in the chain and they are still ticking on the target there will be a delay in the chain as Kiss checks target for the Dot's and if present will skip it, before moving to the next Spell/AA, but if the Dot ends it will be recast as soon as the current Spell/AA finishes casting, causing the order to be out of place when the chain is cast 2 or more times.

Very Basic Syntax: DPS1=Spell/AA|MobHealth% -- There are a bunch of modifiers you can use to fine tune this, please see the #Extra section below!!!

Settings Default Values/Mods What this setting does
DPSOn 0 0/1/2 0/1/2- =0 is Off, =1 is On and cast normally by mob % health, =2 is absolute descending order using mob health % tag as order control. This will cast every spell with a health tag. This Prevents skipping spells that may occur when mobs die too fast. When set to 2, Mob HP % is only used to prioritize cast spell order
DPSSize 20 Any #? Used to control the number of DPS entries.
DPSSkip 20 1-100 Stops casting DPS spells when the mob reaches health percentage. Default 20%
DPSInterval 2 Any # Attaches a timer in seconds to DPS spells with 0 duration after they are cast. If you are nuking too fast you can slow down by increasing the interval.


Spells/Disc/Item/AA,|MobHealth% - See below for examples and details on how this works, as well as additional modifiers.

DebuffAllOn 0 0/1/2 0=Off/1=On/2=More Persistent debuffing - Enables debuffs to be cast on all targets in camp while DPSing the main target. See Below.

* If you edit your dps section often, setting the mobhealth value to 0 disables the line, example: DPS4=Markar's Discord|0


DPS1=Flaming Sword of Xuzl|99
DPS2=Bonds of Force|95|Once
DPS3=Shock of Magic|93
DPS4=Markar's Discord|30


You can apply the debuffall tag specifically to spells you want to cast debuffs on all mobs in camp. Spells without this tag will revert to the default Kiss debuffing style.

  • Syntax: DPS1=Spell/AA|MobHealth%|debuffall|slow/tash/malo/crip/snare/strip|always -- See below for examples.
    • When setting up the order of your debuffs. If you are going to use a combination of Spells and AA's. It's a good idea to stagger them, where an AA follows a Spell. The reason for this is that AA's can be cast while spells are still in a global cool down.
    • Currently, in MQ2 there is no way to test if a debuff spell will overwrite/stack/land on the mob before you cast it. Also there is no easy way to determine if spell is a slow, tash, malo, crip, snare type spell. So it is required that users specify this tag for the debuff type, if it applies.
DebuffAllOn=0 OFF. Kiss casts debuffs normally, debuffing only the primary kill target assigned by the MA. It is advised when turning off DebuffAllOn, that you set DPSOn=2 for better results.
DebuffAllOn=1 This will try and cast every buff, but will not wait for spells/AAs to become ready. If spell is ready, cast it. If spell is not ready move on to next spell/AA. rinse and repeat. After best try casting on current mob. Move on to next mob. This behavior will continue until all debuffs have been cast on all mobs. This option is considered best try and gives priority to DPS than Debuffing. Take into consideration that after trying to debuff each mob if you are a caster with DPSOn set up, That the DPS routine will be run on the MA's current target between each mob being checked for debuffs.
DebuffAllOn=2 This option will spend more time trying to make sure all debuffs are cast on each mob. This option is considered persistent and gives priority to Debuffing than DPS. There is an exception. If you have a debuff that has a long recast timer, that debuff may be skipped.

Slow/tash/malo/crip tag - is used to check mob for the current TYPE of debuff, and the "always" tag is used to know if to overwrite the current TYPE debuff.

Strip tag - is used for dispelling beneficial buffs from mobs.

Always tag - Be careful when using the always tag, because this could cause your character to spam that debuff, if your spell will not overwrite an existing debuff already on the mob.


DPS1=Regenerating Counterbias|99|debuffall|slow|always




DPS1=Enunciation of Tashan|99|debuffall|tash|always
DPS2=Dreary Deeds|98|debuffall|slow
DPS3=Demolished Consciousness|97|debuffall|crip


DPS1=Staff of Elemental Flux|99|debuffall|always


Extra DPS Flags and Modifiers What they do and how they work


This tag is used to Tell the DPS section what to do before attacking. Can be used on all Melee characters not just the Tank.
Only supports 5 entries, This will replace the BeforeCombat in the Melee section.
Example: DPS1=Slap in the face|99|ambush


Attempt to further eliminate the need for MQ2Melee
This tag will attempt to press/mash a button whenever the AA/item/disc/skill is available. DOES NOT WORK ON SPELLS.
This tag ignores all normal timing. It just uses the AA/item/disc/skill when ever it pops.
Example: DPS1=Bash|99|mash


This will cast your Feign Death type spell/ability at whatever % of the mobs health you specify, and will stand up 10 seconds later. Useful for necros to load up a bunch of DoTs then FD.
Example: DPS5=Improved Death Peace|70|feign

|once The |once flag is used to force a spell to only cast one time per fight.

Example: DPS1=Unswerving Hammer of Faith|99|once


This argument is used to "weave" in non-cooldown timer based spells/clickies while cooldown spells refresh. It is a way for you to add DPS from things like instant click nuke items, summoned clicky nuke items from mages/necros/quests. Use the |weave tag on the spell/item clicky that isn't effected by spell GCD.

Mage Example:

DPS1=Darksteel Malosenete|98
DPS3=Force of Elements|94
DPS5=Bottled Essence of Vex|90|Weave
DPS6=Remorseless Servant|88
DPS7=Bolt of Molten Shieldstone|86
DPS8=Summoned: Elemental Ice Fragment|84|Weave
DPS9=Spear of Molten Shieldstone|82
DPS10=Spear of Blistersteel|80
DPS11=Traumatize Pet|78


This supports short duration spells frequently cast during combat that targets group members.

Spells like Panther, Yaulp, short term damage shields, etc.

DPS3=Talisman of the Tiger|90|Me 
DPS4=Untamed Growth|90|MA
DPS5=Lethargy |90|MA


The first tag must be the word command:. This can also be used with the mash, weave, and ambush tags. But the mash, weave, and ambush tag must be the last tag on the entry. Examples:

DPS2=command:/removebuff levitation|99
DPS4=command:/bandolier activate shield|100

The command tag is not setup to use ${Variables} in any of the parameters. Conditionals are required.

Bandolier Example
DPS1=Command:/bandolier activate 1hander|100|Cond1
DPS2=Command:/bandolier activate 2hander|100|Cond2
Cond1=!${InvSlot[mainhand].Item.Name.Equal[Conflagrant Bastard Sword]} && ${SpawnCount[NPC radius 20 zradius 10 targetable]}>=2
Cond2=!${InvSlot[mainhand].Item.Name.Equal[Conflagrant Great Sword]} && ${SpawnCount[NPC radius 20 zradius 10 targetable]}<=1 && ${SpawnCount[NPC radius 20 zradius 10 targetable named]}==0


Dynamic Logic DPS (Deprecated)

[Buffs] Settings

KissAssist Buffing System - How it works:

  • Any character using KissAssist now writes all current and blocked buffs to the kissassist_buffs.ini file. KissAssist scans this file and compares it with the buffs that are listed in the character's Buffs section of their ini file. If another character is missing a buff, and it stacks, they will cast it on that character.
  • This addition works only with characters boxed on the same computer because it writes to a central ini file in the macro folder. The feature writes and scans every 60 seconds so there should not be any noticeable lag. The file is self cleaning so you won't end up with a 30 mb ini file.
  • To allow other macros to work see the Extras section!
  • To overcome the limitation of running all characters on the same computer. Use DanNetOn=1.

Syntax: BUFF1=Spell/AA/Item|OptionalTypeOfBuffMod|Flag/Modifier/Target -- See below for examples.

Settings Default Values/Mods What this setting does
BuffsOn 0 0/1 0=Off/1=On - Toggles the buff feature.
BuffsSize 20 Sets the number of Buff# to parse. Similar function to DPSSize. (Speculation: if BuffsSize=10, then Buff11, Buff12, etc. will be ignored.)
Buffs1-20 NULL Spell/AA/Item

What to buff.
MA, !MA, Me, Melee, Caster, Class are valid targets flags.
Kiss automatically detects self-only buffs, but single target and group buffs can apply the Me tag if you only want them cast on you. The MA flag also works out of group.
The Class tag requires an additional paramater, and must follow the Class tag. Use with single target spells only.

Buffs3=Flameshield of Ro (This will cast on everyone)
Buffs3=Flameshield of Ro|MA (This will only cast on MA)
Buffs3=Flameshield of Ro|CLASS|WAR,SK,PAL (This will only cast on Warrior, Shadow Knight, or Paladin)
RebuffOn 1 0/1

0=Off/1=On - Toggles rebuffing from spell worn off message.
If turned on and the caster get the worn off message then the caster will drop the buff from them self. This causes them to Rebuff.

CheckBuffsTimer Number in seconds to skip checking buffs/rebuffing
PowerSource NULL Specify the name of the PowerSource you want to maintain being equipped and active in your PowerSource inventory slot, as well as destroy/remove used powersources. You can maintain the PowerSource by treating it as a summoned item. (See Summon Items modifier below).
Extra Buff Flags and Modifiers What they do and how they work


The |dual modifier allows for spells that have 2 (or more) parts, where the actual buff effect has a different name than the spell or ability used to cast it. Designed for recourse type spells, or newer spells that combine buffs, but can be used for lots of things.
Example: Buffs1=Talisman of Soul's Unity|Dual|Exigent Focusing
In this example, if the DUAL syntax is not used, KissAssist will rebuff Unity every 8-12 seconds where the other 3 or 4 effects last hours.
MA, !MA, Me, Caster, Melee, and Class flags can be used with the dual modifier, but must be at the end of the line, and before the |cond tag, if used.


Used to summon items that your character needs for combat/buffs. Useful for summoning ModRods, Mage Nuke objects, arrows, and Zerker axes. The quantity flag is so you know how many to summon. Lore items should be set to 1.

Buffs6=Wand of Arcane Transvergence|summon|Rod of Arcane Transvergence|1
Buffs7=Huntsman's Ethereal Quiver|summon|Ethereal Arrow|500
Buffs8=Axe of the Savage|summon|Axe of the Savage|200
Buffs2=Sealed Pure Energeian Metal Orb|summon|Pure Energeian Orb|1
Buffs10=Mysterious Belt of Daggers|summon|Well Balanced Throwing Knife|300
Buffs11=Dusty Soriz Worker Pouch|summon|Shissar Fangs|500


Mana and Endurance spells are handled using the |mana/end or |managroup/endgroup modifiers. They will be used whenever mana or endurance levels are below the specified percent. The MinHealth%ToUse setting is only needed for spells that might kill the cast such as Canni/Death Blossom. It can be left off other spells. Examples:

Buffs1=Paragon of Spirit|mana|50
Buffs2=Focused Paragon of Spirits|endgroup|80
Buffs3=Mana Robe|mana|90|50
Buffs6=Quiet Miracle|managroup|20'''


Any of the Aura type spells should include the |aura modifier so KissAssist will treat it like an aura instead of a buff. Supports up to 2 auras for Clerics and Enchanters if they have the required AAs.
Example: Buffs7=Aura of the Poet|aura


Any mount buff should include the |mount modifier. This will tell kissasist to treat this buff as a mount.
Example: Buffs1=Verdant Hedgerow Leaf|mount


The |melee, |caster and |class flags are used to define single target buffs that you only want to cast on specific archetype classes instead of being cast on the entire group. This is important when your Monk Puller is out of range during normal buff cycles. Using the |melee tag will make sure he/she gets buffed.


Beastlord (BST) Aura example:

Buffs1=command:/alt act 3709|Cond1
Cond1=!${Me.Buff[Pact of the Wurine].ID}


The |remove flag is used to remove unwanted buffs that might be cast on you, or procced. Some spells with illusions have the illusions split now, and you can have Kiss click off the unwanted illusion to make room for other buffs.
This can be applied and combined with the dual modifier for mount blessings to dismount after getting your mount blessing buff!
Example: Buffs6=Illusion: Plaguebringer|remove


Mass Group Buff. Uses Tranquil Blessing AA Not Mass Group Buff AA.
Will Not cast Group only spells(Group_V1).
You have to be in active or resting combat state.
The Caster must NOT have the Buff.
Works with the dual tag, when used with dual tag, mgb must be the last tag on the line.


This format is used for Begging for an item or buff.

Buffing non-Kiss toons

KissAssist can buff characters that are running another macro
KissAssist characters automatically keep track of buffs they have on by constantly writing to the kissassistbuffs.inc include file in the macros folder.
If one of your characters is running a macro or plugin other than kissassist, that macro/plugin will need to write to kissassistbuffs.inc in order to receive buffs.
Thankfully it's easy to add!

Instructions to use this feature in other macros

  1. Make sure kissassistbuffs.inc exists in the macro folder.
  2. Add this line to the top of your macro with any other include files:
    include kissassistbuffs.inc
  3. Add this line the your the main loop of your macro:
    /call WriteBuffs

KissAssist_info.ini setup

MobsToPull, MobsToIgnore, MobsToBurn, MezImmune and PullLocs 1-5 settings

This file is also created when you start up KissAssist for the first time, and for each new zone you start KissAssist in, a new section is created in the .ini file. Alternately, you can predefine zones using the shortzone names by adding them using the example listed below. For Instanced zones kiss adds an "_I" to the end of the zone name. This allows for a separate setup for instanced and normal zones.
PullLocs 1-5 are used to EXCLUDE mobs in an area from being pulled. Think of it as MobsToIgnore, but using a physical area. PullLocs must use Y,X map location(s) with a range. The Y,X location is used as the center point of the range and the Range is how big of an area(Circle) around the center point you want to search. Any mob found in the area is Ignored and not pulled. You can use this function to BLOCK out areas inside/overlapping your existing Pull MaxRadius. Note: MobsToPull Entries, if found will override/ignore PullLocs.
Note: Mobs that names start with a #. You must include the # in the name for MobsToPull, MobsToIgnore.

Sample KissAssist_Info.ini file

MobsToIgnore=a sentry stone,Leaf Pile,Tyzen,Faltar,A Rabid Selyrah
MobsToBurn=List up to 10 mobs. Use full names i.e. Deathsqueak,A_Raging_Braxi,Guggles or NULL
MezImmune=List up to 10 mobs. Use full names i.e. a green snake,a blue tiger,a wide eye ooze or NULL

Advanced Settings

These settings have been added by request and are not officially supported.


You can now determine What interrupt(s) you want checked. Using 1 in the INI file turns on all Interrupts by defaulting CastingInterruptOn=30.
Each Interrupt check has been given a value:
Buffs = 2, Heals = 4, DPS = 8, and Mez = 16
By doing this you are now able to control any of the interrupts you want turned on.
To turn on more than one interrupt simply add the values together.
To Interrupt Mezzing(16) and DPS(8) set CastingInterruptOn=24
To Interrupt Buffing(2) and Heals(4) set CastingInterruptOn=6
To Interrupt Just Mezzing(16) set CastingInterruptOn=16


This requires you to manually add the section to your ini file.


KissAssist checks for this section at macro startup and will execute each of the commands. If you startup kiss and have kotkeys that you use everytime you startup kiss you can have the macro do it for you. The routine uses the MQ2 /docommand to execute each of the commands.

/mycmd and kissmycmds.inc

For those of you who have custom changes to your kissassist macro and for those who would like to add functionality that can be moved from kiss version to kiss version with little to no mods, this for you. This also allow for custom code to be easily shared among kissassit users. To enable this ability you will need to edit the macro and remove the Remark character from the line at the bottom of the macro.
|#include kissmycmds.inc

Current Usage Format:

/mycmd Command param1 param2 param3

Edit the kissmycmds_template.inc file in the macro directory for example code, To get started copy the kissmycmds_template.inc to kissmycmds.inc. Make your changes to the kissmycmds.inc file.

If you have custom routines you currently move from kiss version to kiss version, you can move the code to this file.

A detailed guide on adding custom commands can be found here.

Chain Pulling Explained

Things you need to know about chain pulling, but you never thought about.

  1. Current DPS Mobs distance from camp.
    This is important when chain pulling. If the current DPS mob is still up/alive when the next mob comes into camp, the new/incoming mob will stop and aggro the tank. If your using CC then the mob will get mezzed. The problem here is that each incoming mob gets mezzed a little farther from camp, causing a creeping effect of the tank. Gradually the Tank will be to far from camp, so there is a check for the Tank to be with in 75 units of the pullers camp location.
  2. Is there a named in camp?
    Well you guessed it. If there is a named in camp, then don't pull more mobs.
  3. Number of mobs on Xtarget/in camp.
    There is a check done to not go and pull more mobs until you are left with 1 mob in camp and/or Autohater mobs on Xtarget.
  4. Current DPS Mobs HP%
    This is extremely important and can make a big difference in how smooth your camp works. A big part of this has to do with your individual play style and your Tanks ability to maintain aggro. If your tank is having issues with keeping/maintaining aggro, it is better to have the Puller go pull your next mob sooner than later. So set your ChainPullHP to a higher number like 75 or above. This will help with keeping your puller from building up aggro. The down side to this method is it will contribute to the tank creeping out from camp more. Now if there is no issues with your Tank keeping aggro then set your ChainPullHP below 50%. You will need to play with the value to find, what you consider the sweet spot. But what you are looking for is the next mob to come into camp as the current mob is dying.
    Things to keep in mind. The character that you use for pulling, and setting up their DPS entries, to use their abilities to reduce aggro. Like classes that can feign-death. Also the Aggro section in your ini, is your BESTIST friend here. The Aggro section is not just for increasing and keeping aggro, it can also be used to reduce/loose your aggro.
  5. Current Aggro PCT on Current DPS mob.
    There is a check to NOT pull the next mob if your puller has 50% or more aggro.
    Well this should be self explanatory, but if you have 50% or more aggro on your puller and he/she takes off, out of camp, to pull another mob. Guess who is going to follow? That's right. Not only that, but all your melee characters will be chasing the mob.
    To help with this issue we added something for the tanks to use in the Aggro section. That's right the tank can now monitor the Secondary aggro level of the mob and try and do something about it. We added the "<<" tag for monitoring mobs secondary aggro level. See the kiss Beginner/Intermediate instructions for more information.
  6. How far away from camp is the next mob I am about to pull?
    Why would I care? Well you may not, but if your trying to level your puller you should care.
    There is a limit on how far away you can be from a mob for you to get experience credit. The limit is around 400 units. So if the next mob to pull is greater than your PullRange plus 400 units, then we do NOT pull them.
    Now if your pulling character is maxed out on everything, or your just into depriving the working class of their just rewards. Then there is a flag for you. You can override this check by setting the PullXPCheck to zero(0).
    Now you won't find this flag/entry in your ini file. LOL, did you run off and check your ini file before reading this? You have to either change it in the macro, or use a hot key or even better, use the new [StartupCommands] section.
    Command1=/varset PullXPCheck 0
    Command1=/togglevariable PullXPCheck 0

So now your all set to start chain pulling, but things just aren't working as expected. The puller is not running out and pulling mobs like you expect. Well your in luck, we added a way to see what the puller is doing. Or in your case, not doing.

You can now turn on/off chain pulling spam/debug messages. Use the /debug ChainP 1 to start the messages and /debug ChainP 0 to turn them off.

Chain Pull Debug

Chain Pull Failure messages explained

Chain Pull Failed 0:
Your role is not puller or you have ChainPull turned off.​
Values after Message: ${Role} ${ChainPull}​
Chain Pull Failed 1:
PullHold could be on, or there is a Named in camp or you have 2 or more mobs in camp​
Values after Message: ${PullHold} ${MobCount}<2 ${Me.XTarget[${XTSlot2}].ID} ${Target.Named}​

Values after Message: ${Macro.Return} ${PullXPCheck} ${Spawn[${ChainPullTemp}].Distance}<${Math.Calc[${PullRange}+400]} ${Me.TargetOfTarget.Name} ${Me.PctAggro}​

DPS Meter

Using the DPS meter in kiss is now dependent on the MQ2DPSAdv plugin. The plugin comes with its own UI that will load, if setup properly. See the Plugin's instructions for more information. If you want this window closed when starting kissassist. Then use the new [StartupCommands] section and add an entry to close the window.
Example: Command1=/invoke ${Window[dpsadvwnd].DoClose}

Commands with Advanced Options


Add ignore can be used to add Mob ID's to a list. In situation where the Mobs name won't work for ignoring mobs when pulling, you can tell the /addignore command to use the ID instead.

Usage Example: /addignore ${Target.ID} 1

This will tell kissassist to maintain a list of ID's in the variable named MobsToIgnoreByID. This list is dynamic and is reset every time kiss is started.


This command has 3 parameters. Action, Section, SkipErrorChecking(optional).

Action - Can be 1 of the following: load, list ,help. Currently only load is implemented. List and help are skipped.
Section - Can be 1 of the following: all, general, spells, buffs, melee, gom, gmail, ae, dps, aggro, heals, cures, pet, merc, mez, burn, pull, afktools, conditions.
SkipErrorChecking - Can be blank, 0, or 1. By default it is set to 0 so error checking is enabled.

Usage examples:
/kasettings load dps - reloads the dps section with error checking.
/kasettings load dps 0 - same as above.
/kasettings load dps 1 - reloads the dps section, but skips error checking.


This command has 2 parameters: Action and ActionID(optional).

Action - Add or remove. Will add or remove characters ID's to the ExtendedBuffList.
ActionID - Blank or a valid player character ID. If blank it uses your current Target.

This command allows you to keep a custom list of characters, by ID. You want to buff. This list is dynamic and resets every time kissassist is restarted.


This command has 3 parameters: StickOff, UseNavOnly, and IgnoreDistance

StickOff - 0/1. 1 turns stick off when you arrive at your destination. 0 stick to WhoToChase.
UseNavOnly - 0/1. 1 checks for Navigation plugin and valid Navigation Path or don't do this.
IgnoreDistance - 0/1. 1 - Ignore how far away WhoToChase is. This will run you across the zone.
0 - Use CampRadiusExceed as max distance.

Usage Examples:

/trackmedown 1 1 1
This will turn off sticking and only run to WhoToChase if there is a valid Navigation path available and not check how far away WhoToChase is away from you.

/trackmedown 0 0 0
This will leave stick on and use /moveto if a navigation path is not available, and only run to WhoToChase if they are within CampRadiusExceed range.

This command is kind of misleading in the fact that it refers to the character issuing the command. This command was always intended to be issued using eqbc or dannet, from WhoToChase.

WhoToChase would have issued the command as follows:
/bcg //trackmedown 1 1 1
/dgge /trackmedown 1 1 1

The command can still be used from an individual character that you need to run to WhoToChase. Just use the /trackmedown from the individual character using a combination of the above parameters.

Control movement in camp

The following settings and explanation only applies if UseMQ2Melee ini entry is turned off and during Combat.

  1. To keep the MA/Tank from darting/jumping out to meet the mob. Set MeleeDistance and CampRadius to the same Value. This will tell Kiss to skip any /moveto commands.
  2. To keep any melee characters (Melee0n=1) from moving. Set the StickHow ini entry to "I". That's a capital "i" for Ignore.

Buff Begging Logic(s)

This Feature was designed as an automation tool internal to kissassist and not to be a buff bot for anyone running by. The Beggar has to be a member of one of the following: Group, Fellowship, Guild, Friends List. If the beggar is NOT a member of one of the mentioned groups, then they are ignored.

For those of you who just have to have a hot key to pound on. Here are some examples that you can use to trigger the Buffer to give you what you need.

/say KABeg for ${Me.CleanName} modrodp 0
/tell TheGiver KABeg for ${Me.CleanName} modrodp 0

There are a few assumptions made when Buff begging. First assumption is the beggar only begs for the buff if he needs it. There are no additional conditions for the caster to check. If you begged for a buff, then you know what you are asking for.

Using a condition, on an entry in the buffs section that is a begfor entry, does not get checked. The condition is useless. For items, the logic checks the quantity you have against what is in the entry, and for buffs it checks if you have the buff or not.

From the casters side the buff entry is looked at as a normal buff entry.

Buffs1=Shining Aegis|dual|Shining Defense
Buffs1=Shining Aegis|dual|Shining Defense|alias|Symbol

are processed identically in the buffs routine when the caster is checking buffs. You can also use Buffs1=Shining Aegis|dual|Shining Defense|alias|Symbol|cond1 and create a condition. The condition is checked in the normal buffing routine, but is ignored when casting on a character that begged for it.
