About Druid Announces

The addon announces spells such as Innervate or Rebirth to raid-chat or whisper-targets.
At that, it is sensitive to spell-failures such as Out-of-Range or Line-of-Sight.

What it does:

  • Announce in the raid/party-chat when you cast Rebirth. (Only if the spell is actually casted, which can't be achieved with macros)
  • Whisper the spell target when you cast Innervate.
  • Whisper the targeted player when an Innervate or Rebirth failed because of Line-of-sight or Out-of-range.
  • It is possible to modify the addon to do any kind of wispers/announces on any spell (depending if it succeded or failed due to LoS/OoR)

Just copy the "DruidAnnounces" folder to your "World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns" folder.
You might have to enable out-of-date addons or update the .toc file in case the version numbers don't match.

The addon is enabled by default. It does not consume a noticible amount of system resources.
You can disable or enable the addon using the "/druidannounces" command. It will be enabled by default at restart.
To change or add announces, you can edit the "setup.lua" file. (basic understanding of the lua language required)

You can change to debug mode with "/druidannounces debug".
0 -> normal mode
1 -> silent mode (no whispers or chat messages), announces for "Healing Touch" & "Rejuvenation" will be activated (to test without cooldown)
2 -> additional debug messages

Please comment if you experience any bugs.
Add this addon to your favorites to keep you informed on updates.
Feel free to post your setup.lua changes in the comments, to give other users an idea of how spell announces can be altered.

    If you wish to update this to work with MoP do the following.

    Open Setup.lua

    The problem code is duplicated in two places.  The first is for the English localization and the second is for the German localization.

    English localization is found at lines 72, 73 and 74
    German localization is found at lines 114, 115 and 116


    local chatType = "SAY"     
    if (GetNumPartyMembers()>0) then chatType = "PARTY" end     
    if (GetNumRaidMembers()>0) then chatType = "RAID" end


    local chatType = "SAY"
    local inInstanceGroup = IsInGroup(LE_PARTY_CATEGORY_INSTANCE)
    if inInstanceGroup then
    chatType = "INSTANCE_CHAT"
    elseif IsInRaid() then
    chatType = "RAID"
    elseif IsInGroup() then 
    chatType = "PARTY"


    Open DruidAnnounces.TOC

    Pure Awesomeness. 

    Special thanks to Mr. Soupsbelly, my friend and guildie who took a look at and fixed this addon (one of my faves) since it was no longer working. :D

    is this being updated for MoP?

  • #20

    I posted a fix in the comments that seems to be working.

  • #17
    If you wish to modify this so that it does not /w your own character open Setup.lua and replace line 19.

    if (UnitName("player") ~= target) then
    DruidAnnounces.ChatMessage(DruidAnnounces.INNERVATE_SUCCESS, "WHISPER", target);

    if you would still like it to let you know if you have innervated yourself but not send yourself a /w replace it with the following.

    if (UnitName("player") ~= target) then
    DruidAnnounces.ChatMessage(DruidAnnounces.INNERVATE_SUCCESS, "WHISPER", target);
    DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(string.format("|cff33ff99 %s %s", UnitName("player"), DruidAnnounces.INNERVATE_SUCCESS));
  • #14
    change line 233 in DruidAnnounces.lua from
    spellName = GetSpellName(i, BOOKTYPE_SPELL);
    spellName = GetSpellBookItemName(i, BOOKTYPE_SPELL);

    Why oh why cant i get any sort of option menu or screen to come up, so i can turn on/off options of this addon. i use to be able to access them.
  • #12
    It still pst. innvervate when I use it, however it dosnt do it on cross server instances.

    btw Is there any way it can ignore whispering yourself?? i have a whisper addon that displays last few whisper from a target and most the time i see is myslef with Innervated X alot
  • #11
    Doesn't whipser by innervating anymore.
    Please can you try to fix this?
  • #8
    Any reason this would chew up a ton of cpu cycles, even when it hasn't been used?
    Example.. I log in, go around doing a few dailies, start to get a lot of lagging/studdering, check the resources and this shows up as about 20% of my total CPU time even though I haven't used anything that would call it.
  • #7
    There anyway to stop it from whispering yourself when you innervate yourself?
  • #9
    Yeah, I have the same question...
  • #5
    Could you add Barkskin and Survival Instincts announces (in raid or say) for feral tanks? It's good to tell to others on some encounters when these cooldowns are used.

    PS: Yes, i know i could macro these, but i'm using tons of macros, so it would be better to heave an addon for this instead.
