Bitmasks of explored zones (1 bit for explored, 0 bit for unexplored)

ammoId

Template ID of the ammo item

knownTitles

Contains data about known Titles stored in 6 x 16bit integers. To calculate where a knownTitle is in one of those 6 integers you do the following: We select one of the titles from CharTitles.dbc, take Archmage title for example:

TitleID UnkRef? MaleTitle FemaleTitle InGameOrder
93 0 Archmage %s Archmage %s 61

We use the InGameOrder to calculate in which one of the 6 (16bit) integer is the title stored:

InGameOrder / 32 = X
61 / 32 = **1,90625** (1 - Do **NOT** round the value!)

so the 1st integer stores the title. Because counting starts from 0 to 5, it would be "0 TITLE_BIT 0 0 0 0".

Now which bit stores the title? We use modulo to calculate this.

InGameOrder Modulo 32 = X
61 Mod 32 = **29**

so the 29bit stores the title. This would be 2 ^ 29 = 536870912. This bit stores the Archmage title. This would mean if you only have the Archmage title, characters.knownTitles would be "0 536870912 0 0 0 0".

actionBars

1 0x00000001 Bottom Left Bar
2 0x00000002 Bottom Right Bar
