Field Descriptions

guid

A unique identifier given to each creature to distinguish one creature from another. Two creatures can NOT have same GUID.

id

The ID of the template that is used when instantiating this creature.

map

The ID of the map that the creature is spawned on.

spawnMask

Controls under which difficulties the creature is spawned. The values are bit-masked, so you can add them together to combine the affects of two or more values.

Example:

4 + 8 = 12

The creature will spawn in only the 10 and 25 man heroic versions of the map that the creature is spawned on.

 

Value

Comment

0

Not spawned

1

Spawned only in 10-man-normal versions of maps (includes maps without a heroic mode)

2

Spawned only in 25-man-normal versions of maps (or heroics pre 3.2)

4

Spawned only in 10-man heroic versions of maps

8

Spawned only in 25-man-heroic versions of maps

15

Spawned in all versions of maps

phaseMask

This is a bit-mask field that describes all the phases that a creature will appear in. Aura 261 determines the phase you can see. For example, if you had this aura http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=55782, you would be able to see creatures in phase 2. If you wanted the creature to be visible in both phase 1 and phase 2, you would set the phase-mask to 3.

modelid

The model ID associated with the creature. Note that two creatures that use the same template can have different models. See creature_model_info for more information on model-specific characteristics.

Note:

This can be left at 0 and a random model from its assigned models in creature_template will be assigned by the core.

equipment_id

The ID as defined within creature_equip_template corresponding to the entry. The value essential defines the equip:

  •  -1: A random equip from the set of equips in creature_equip_template will be chosen.
  •   0: No equipment defined.
  • 1+: The individual id within creature_equip_template.

position_x

The X position of the creatures spawn point.

position_y

The Y position of the creatures spawn point.

position_z

The Z position of the creatures spawn point.

orientation

The orientation of the creatures spawn point. (North = 0.0; South = pi (3.14159))

spawntimesecs

The respawn time, in seconds, of the creature.

spawndist

The maximum distance that the creature may spawn from its spawn point. Also controls how far away the creature can walk from its spawn point if its MovementType = 1.

currentwaypoint

The current waypoint that the creature is on, if any.

curhealth

The health that the creature will spawn with.

curmana

The mana that the creature will spawn with.

MovementType

The movement type associated with the creature. Usually the same as its MovementType, but it can be different.

npcflag

Same as creature_template.npcflag .

NOTE: A creature.npcflag record will override a creature_template.npcflag record.

unit_flags

Same as creature_template.unit_flags.

Note:

A creature.unit_flags record will override a creature_template.unit_flags record.

dynamicflags

Same as creature_template.dynamicflags.

Note:

A creature.dynamicflags record will override a creature_template.dynamicflags record.
