    if plr ~= nil then
    Unit:SendChatMessage(14(yell),0(Universal lang),plr:GetName()..", you cannot resist me!")

    :MoveTo(x,y,z,o) -- pretty self explainatory. Use .gps while ingame to retrieve coords, O is just orientation.

    :CastSpell(spellid) -- Just fill in the spell id which you want to the current unit to cast. This will cast the spell on caller of this function and ignore cast time.
    function CastSpell(Unit,event)
    Unit:CastSpell(5) -- death touch xd

    :CastSpellOnTarget(spellid,target) -- first argument is spellid just like above, 2nd is target, there is a bug w/ this function that it causes it not to cast on the target.

    Use FullCastSpellOnTarget(spellid,target) if you want to cast on a target.

    :FullCastSpell(spellid) -- This does the same as castspell except with casttime.

    :SpawnCreature(entryid,x,y,z,faction,duration) -- Unlike spawngameobject, creatures use factions. This decides whether they are friendly/hated towards the player and other stuff like if you kill it what rep u get.

    Unit:SpawnCreature(randomnumberhere,Unit:GetX(),Un it:GetY(),Unit:GetZ(),14,5000(despawn after 5 secs))

    :RegisterEvent(string,delay,repeats) -- registers a function to call on the unit, note that only creatures can use this, not gameobjects.

    function KillYou(Unit,event)
    Unit:FullCastSpellOnTarget(5,Unit:GetRandomPlayer( 0))

    :RemoveEvents() -- this has no arguments and removes all registered functions.

    function OnCreatureDied(Unit,event)
    Unit:RemoveEvents()-- when the creature is dead, remove all functions so it doesn't do anything.

    :SendBroadcastMessage(string) -- this is a player only command. The player who called it, displays a message that you typed in there

    function Error(Unit,event)
    local tank = Unit:GetMainTank()
    tank:SendBroadCastMessage("You are now tanking "..Unit:GetName())

    :SendAreaTriggerMessage(stringfunc) - This sends a message across the top center of your screen. Similar like a raid warning message.
    :KnockBack() -- neither this.
    :MarkQuestObjectiveAsComplete(questid,objective) -- Never used this.
    :LearnSpell(spellid) -- This is a player only command, it teaches the player unit that it is called on the spellid

    local plr = Unit:GetClosestPlayer()
    plr:UnlearnSpell(5) -- noooes gief death touch!!

    :HasFinishedQuest(questid)-- this is a boolean like others to come. It checks whether the player has finished the quest provided w/ the id, if not, it pushes false.

    local plr = Unit:GetClosestPlayer()
    if plr:HasFinishedQuest(questid) == true then
    do this if the player has completed the quest

    :ClearThreatList() -- this maybe confused to wipethreatlist. What it does is set all threat levels to 1, This means the creature will still aggro, but aggro can be easily taken away.
    :ChangeTarget(target) -- This causes the Unit to change the target, it is basically SetNextTarget(target).
    :Emote(emoteid) -- Use this to get the unit to do a certain emote. // In Untested Branch you can give a secind argument for delay in milliseconds: Unit:Emote(18,5000) --Kneel down in 5 Seconds

    :CreateWaypoint(x,y,z,waittime,moveflags,displayid ) -- x,y,z are the coords, waittime is the delay for it to not move,moveflags are either 0 for walk, 256 for run, or 768 for fly, displayid is how you want the waypoints to look like(Like mini models).
    :*DestroyCustomWaypointMap() -- use it to destroy all waypoints that the unit has. Only works for creatures.
    :MoveToWaypoint(waypointid) -- When you create ur first waypoint, they are numberd in order start from 1. 0 and 1 do the same thing. Use it to make a unit move to various waypoints.
    :TeleportUnit(mapid,x,y,z) -- This teleport's a PLAYER only unit to the location specified.

    Unit:ChannelSpell(plr:GetGUID(),spellid) -- channel a certain spell on the player.

    :ReturnToSpawnPoint() -- makes a unit go back to its spawn point.
    :HasAura(auraid) -- this is a boolean, returns true if the unit has the auraid given, or false if not.
    :Land() -- Use this to land units that are already flying.
    :CancelSpell() -- This cancels the units current spell?

    :Strike(target,dmg,sp,adddmg,exclusivedmg,pct_dmg_ mod) -- I dono xD
    :Kill(target) -- this pretty much calls a dealdamage that deals damage equivalent to the Units hp.
    :*DealDamage(target,damage,spellid) -- Use this to deal modified dmg to the target specified.

    :PerformCharDBQuery(querystring) ---->\
