About EventAlert

The addon will notify you in the middle of your screen with an icon, name of the spell that has procced, the time left on the proc and will make a subtle sound. EventAlert is also able to handle more than one proc at a time (this option was not available in previous versions).

I am not fond of addons that have very complicated installation and setups. The mod should work on install without any config, but if you wish to change any options use the following command: /ea options
To see a more detailed list of what options are avaiable to the mod, just check out the screenshot of the options pane.

Quick Backstory: I created this addon as a test for myself as my first "from the ground up" addon. Most of my coding in WoW LUA was taking other addons and just fixing them so they work from minor bugs or whatnot.

Anyhow, I needed a mod that was lightweight and did only what I wanted it to do, and that was warn me when one of my spells or talents procced something I needed. Thus, EventAlert was born. There are likely to be bugs, explosions and not so good things that may come from this mod. I'm sorry in advance! If you find a bug, please let me know so I can fix it.

Also, if anyone finds a spell/talent/etc that they want watched, please let me know and I will add it!

Greetings everyone, my name is Menio and I will be taking over the maintenance of this addon from CurtisTheGreat, the original author!

I'll start with an important note: If you used EventAlert before in your current WoW folder, you will need to delete the EventAlert.lua and EventAlert.lua.bak files located at:
\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\ACCOUNTNAME\SavedVariables for this addon to work.

Above is CurtisTheGreat's original description, with updated class abilities.

Bugfix: Attempted to fix an issue with alt items staying on screen after they were supposed to go away.

    Some people have not seen the fix for this addon, I'm just posting here to let people see it. Credits to floppydawg for the fix

    To fix this addon, open main.lua with a raw text editor (Notepad works fine). Location of file will be something like C:\Games or Similar\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\EventAlert\lua\main.lua Go to line 90 (in notepad, disable WordWrap to enable going to specific lines).

    The section you are looking for should look something like this:

        if (event == "COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED") then
      local EA_eventType = select(2, ...);        
      local EA_arg7 = select(7, ...);        
      local EA_arg9 = select(9, ...);        
      local EA_arg10 = select(10, ...);        
      local EA_arg13 = select(13, ...);
    If you have previously edited it, it may have different numbers after select(.
        if (event == "COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED") then
      local EA_eventType = select(2, ...); 
     local EA_arg7 = select(9, ...);        
     local EA_arg9 = select(12, ...);        
     local EA_arg10 = select(13, ...);        
     local EA_arg13 = select(16, ...);
    EventAlert works again  :D

    Re: EventAlert Sound Level

    Is it possible to change the sound level.  If I turn up the volume all the way on my speakers, I can barely hear it, and everything else blasts.


  • #1210

    i like this addon but it doesnt work with my warrior´s incite procs, what can i do?

  • #1207
    If you want to delete a custom alert you can do it manually.

    go to :

    World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\YOUR_ACCOUNT_NAME\SavedVariables\EventAlert.lua

    Then open the file with a text editor go to your class section and delete the line corresponding to the spellId you want to delete. Save the modifications.

    Then erase the repertory World of Warcraft\Cache

    Worked fine for me.

    Anyone who knows how to fix it for the new patch?
  • #1205
    I really hopes someone picks this up and makes it great again.
  • #1204
    Hi everyone ! First Curtis I want to thank you again for this great addon and I hope you'll maintain it in the future. I play with EventAlert since a couple of years and this is by far my most useful addon. Thanks.

    Then I also came here cause I'm having trouble. I play holy paladin and there is a bug with the spell denouce especially with 4.2 now it applies a debuff of the same name and when an enemy paladin cast it on me it trigger the alert "denounce".

    I hope you or someone of the community will be able to solve this issue.
  • #1203
    Good for mistake have I included an alert that I do not want podria to erase like??? In the options it puts that can resign but not to work thank you
  • #1202

  • #1200
    Someone knows the Spellid for "Harmony" (Druid Restauration).
