AnnoyingBuffReminder 2.14

by Wikwocket ([email protected])
Note: This AddOn is not currently being updated. It should still work overall (probably until Cataclysm changes a lot of things). Unfortunately I have not been playing WoW as regularly and I do not have the time to update my AddOns. If you have any questions, please email me at [email protected]

This AddOn displays an annoying reminder to use class buffs, armor spells, shouts, aspects, blessings, and Victory Rush.

Specifically, it will display an annoying popup on your screen (you can drag it with the mouse) if you do not have an appropriate spell up:
  • Death Knight: Any presence, Horn of Winter, Bone Shield
  • Druid: Mark/Gift of the Wild, Thorns, Omen of Clarity
  • Hunter: Any Aspect, Trueshot Aura
  • Mage: Any Armor spell, Arcane Intellect/Brilliance, Amplify/Dampen Magic
  • Paladin: Any aura (Crusader while mounted), any blessing, any seal, Righteous Fury, Sacred Shield
  • Priest: Inner Fire, Power Word/Prayer of Fortitude, Divine/Prayer of Spirit, Shadow Protection
  • Rogue: Hunger for Blood
  • Shaman: Any Shield spell, and weapon enchants
  • Warlock: Any Skin/Armor spell, Soul Link, Demonic Sacrifice, Detect Invisibility
  • Warrior: Battle Shout or Commanding Shout, Victory Rush

This AddOn will work with the English, French, German, and Spanish versions of WoW.

There are several options:

  • /abr pvp/bg to remind while in a battleground/arena.
  • /abr icons to toggle display of spell icons.
  • /abr lock|unlock to toggle window locking and click-through.
  • /abr center to reset window position to center of screen.
  • /abr <spell> to toggle reminders for the following optional spells:
    • battle|battleshout|bs - Battle Shout
    • command|commandingshout|cs - Commanding Shout
    • anyshout|shout - Any Shout
    • vr|victory|rush - Victory Rush (after each kill; on by default)
    • amp|amplify - Amplify Magic
    • damp|dampen - Dampen Magic
    • thorns - Thorns
    • omen|clarity|ooc - Omen of Clarity
    • soul|link|soullink - Soul Link
    • detect|invis - Detect Invisibility
    • demon|sacrifice - Demonic Sacrifice
    • spellstone|firestone|stone - Spellstone or Firestone weapon buff
    • tsa|trueshot - Trueshot Aura
    • crusader|ca - Crusader Aura (when mounted)
    • fury|righteous|righteousfury|rf - Righteous Fury
    • s|seal - Any Seal spell
    • sacred|sacredshield - Sacred Shield
    • shield|shieldspell - Shaman shield spells (on by default)
    • divine|spirit - Divine Spirit
    • shadow|shadowprot - Shadow Protection
    • hungerforblood|hunger|hfb - Hunger for Blood
    • bone|shield|boneshield - Bone Shield
    • horn|winter|how - Horn of Winter
    • unholy|blight|unholyblight|ub - Unholy Blight

All settings are saved across sessions, except for Warrior shout preference, since using this depends on whether you have two warriors in your party.

It will only annoy you if you have more than 50% mana or 10 rage, are not mounted, not flying, not in a capital city, and not mind controlled. It will also not bug you if you are less than level 15. It won't remind you in battlegrounds/arenas unless you tell it to. For some short-term buffs, and buffs that require rage/energy/runes to keep up, the reminder will only show up when in combat.

The popup should appear in the situations when you would want the buff up. No configuration is necessary, unless you want to also enable reminders for optional spells.

I hope you find this mod useful. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome!

    Issue: "Horn of Winter" isn't supported

    This addon works wonderfully on my Balance druid, it reminds me to apply "Mark of the Wild." Unfortunately, it does not remind me to apply "Horn of Winter" when I'm on my Unholy death knight. Also, the /abr commands do not work. When I type one of the /abr commands, it says "Type '/help' for a listing of a few commands." As I said earlier, it works on my Balance druid, so I wouldn't uninstall it, but the reason I installed it was I wanted a prompt for my Unholy death knight. Since, "Horn of Winter" has to be reapplied every 5 minutes a reminder would be nice. There is a glyph that increases the duration of this effect, but I have not added it because I prefer others in those slots.

    Finally ... someone complaining! Sorry for noticing that late, but I gave up looking for comments or tickets since it seemed to work fine for everyone which is kinda boring on my side. ;P

    I'll look into this asap.

    Merry Christmas!


    Ok, all done. Added Horn of Winter. (does only pop up in combat because it may become quite annoying in town or whereever it wont be needed with it's 5min bufftime)

    Also, the command IS working but there was a typo in the discription which is my fault. Should be /abrr. Thanks for the heads up.
