WoW API < FollowByName

Start following a player by their name.

FollowByName("name", exactMatch);


Parameters Edit

ArgumentsEdit

("name", exactMatch)
name 
String - The name of the player to follow.
exactMatch 
Boolean

Example Edit

FollowByName("Norrin", true);

Details Edit

  • If the given player name isn't nearby or doesn't exist, and exactMatch isn't set, FollowByName picks the closest match from characters nearby.
  • It is not possible to stop following someone from a script. The player needs to take action (move, jump, sit, whatever). See the discussion page for FollowUnit().
