About EavesDrop

PLEASE NOTE: Non-enUS clients may have errors or strange behavior.

What is it? - A simple combat log that displays events similar to how SCT/D would in a log, using icons to display spells/skills. It seperates incoming events (left side) from out going events (right side) from misc. events (middle).

What all can it show?
- Your hits, spells, misses, heals, etc...
- Incoming damage, spells, heals, buffs, debuffs, etc...
- Power gain
- Honor, Reputation, SKill, and Experience gain
- Mob/People you have slain
- Combat start/stop
- Timestamps and details in tooltips
- High hit stat tracking for both incoming and outgoing skills.
- Combat Summaries
- Shift+Click to paste events of history into Chat Edit Box

Where did it come from? - Original idea by Bant. Coding help/samples from Andalia`s SideCombatLog and CombatChat.

How do I use it? - Unzip EavesDrop into your interface\addons directory. For more info on installing, please read install.txt. Now just run WoW and once logged in, you will see the EavesDrop in the middle of your screen. Left click the EavesDrop Tab to drag it. Right click the EavesDrop Tab to see the options menu.

My peridoic damage is not showing up in the combat log or on the screen! How do I fix it? - You have turned off periodic damage on the Advanced Options under Interface options. Make sure the "Periodic Damage" check box is checked, even if you have Damage unchecked.

How do I reset EavesDrop or load another users settings? - EavesDrop uses the Ace2 profile system. By default all characters use the same profile. You may change this for each character using the Profile area of the option menu. You can reset the options for the current profile using the Rest option in the menu.

How do I change the fonts? - EavesDrop uses the games default fonts. You will need to use a font program like ClearFont of Fontabulous to change it.

Please post all errors and suggestions on using the provided forms.
Please post all questions and comments on the offical EavesDrop thread.

    Is there a way to filter out multistrike to reduce the spam a bit?

    Also in the description above FAQ it talks about periodic damage under an Advanced options under interface. I can't seem to find this.


    Cheers for a great addon!

    Am I the only one who's "linking" is bugged? :S I get stuff like:

    08/01/15 04:52:48, |Hunit:Player-3666-070A578B:PrusianzuYour Blackout Kick hit |Hunit:Creature-0-3666-1464-115-90482-00003CD8DE:Felsworn BerserkerFelsworn Berserker 21138 Physical. (66718 Overkill) (Critical) 

    It's not colliding with other addons, same happens if I load only Eavesdrop :(

  • #138

    One suggestion: the current settings to filter low numbers seems a bit.. well, low. It's fairly easy to change in the lua, but at least in my opinion it should be possible to set it to numbers higher than 2000.


    Otherwise: great addon, have been using it since the BC days!

  • #139

    I just updated SCT/SCTD for the slider amounts but hadn't heard such requests for Eavesdrop. I can work to add that but for now you can click on the box underneath any slider, manually type in any number you need, and then hit enter to save it.

  • #141

    Ok, I'll look to update them soon. Or maybe even make it free entry.

  • #140

    It seems to reset it to within the highest number within the limits, though. I.e. I enter "5000" into the box, hit enter and then it'll go to 2000.

    This addon really seems to lag me hard during the Ko'ragh encounter in Highmaul.

    if just there was ever an option to disable outgoing events entirely (and even incoming heals) this would be perfect for tanks.

    as it is this is more or less a 20 line spamfest where you wont see sh*t midfight and scroll through tons of uninteresting stuff afterwards to find the info you really need. more filteroptions would really make this addon awesome.

  • #135

    Any chance this will be updated for WoD?

  • #133

    Please add a simple filter option to disable/enable certain spell types and if they are from other people than myself. For example I dont want to see other heals on me, just myself as a dd.

  • #132

    Is there any way to remove my "damage done" spells from the window and keep only "damage taken" and "healing done"?

  • #131

    Is there a reason the max number of lines is limited to 20? Would it be possible to have that cap raised?

    I put the window on one side of my screen, remove the border, and make it as thin and tall as possible, since that lets me see the most amount of information. It turns the side of my screen into a little damage/healing ticker. But it's too short, because the max lines are 20. :(

    Great mod, btw.

    Server/Realm name



    Been using Eavesdrop for a long time now. However since cross realm raids, the name of the target/player + realm name takes too much space and the damage/heal value gets pushed off. I use a narrow setup and would like an option to remove the 'realm' name until I hover on the entry.

    I'm prepared to edit the LUA if needed.


    Thanks for supporting this addon through all these years.

    Any way we could get a damage filter and sliders that went up higher to say 60k or unlimited?

    The damage filter would be to elminate my dots which are very spammy and would be nice if it went very high for damage for use in fire when Ignite is ticking for around 60k.

    The healer filter needs to be higher because my Rune of Power tics every 3 seconds for 4241+ health and is very spammy.

    I'd like to be able to set it see my direct damage through Arcane Blast, Arcane Missiles and Arcane Barrage and this would be easy with those filter settings mentioned.

    battle-pet related - is it possible to have battle-pet events (damage and buffs, etc) show on eavesdrop?
