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.

    I'm not sure what I'm missing. Under Alert Icon Options, lock the alert frame is unchecked, but I can't move the alert frame on my screen. Any ideas? I am using the version that I downloaded the same date as my post. I noticed someone had this same issue and posted Feb. 19, 2014. This is my first time downloading this addon too.

    I am not quite sure of the specifics because I haven't moved the icons in forever, but I think you need to show the template frames before moving the alert frames around.

    If I am not mistaken, you can make them appear with the chat comand "/ea showtest".

    If that doesn't work, feel free to write again!

  • #1442

    I need ID Blood Tap.


  • #1445

    You could try with spellID "114851", but I'm not 100% sure it will work since I haven't tested it myself.

    If it doesn't work, post again and I'll look into it!

  • #1440

    Hi, Paladin Spell-ID 84963 -->"Inquisition" cooldown timer doesnt work correct... could you add this spell ass standart into your addon (of course fixed^^)

  • #1443

    I just tried a quick fix for this and it seems to be working right. I remember that there was a problem displaying the time for buffs that lasted more than 30 seconds so I cut it down so that any buff over 30 seconds wouldn't display a timer until the remaining time was under 30. (The logic at the time was that you wouldn't need to worry about it over 30 seconds anyways, oopssss...)

    I'll be posting a new version shortly.

    EDIT: New version posted (but not accepted yet, it should be available soon-ish), I didn't add it as baseline because I forgot, oops. :S It should display correctly now though.

    Thanks for the report!

    How can I fix Inquisition timer in Event alert? It shows it 30 sec cd. First I shows nothing then when the cd goes to 30 sec it starts to show cooldown timer. Default is 60 sec. Can someone help?

  • #1439

    Hi I'm having issues with move the event frames, seems recent patch isn't allowing me to change the defualt position of the frames even when they are unlock. I've even tried disabling all other addons and only having eventalert enabled. Please fix as this is a great addon. Thank you 

  • #1444

    I was not able to replicate the issue, which version of EventAlert are you using?

  • #1437

    Hi! I have a problem with Revenge on my Warri. The popup doesnt dissapear an the timer freezes on 15 for example. Any idea?

  • #1446

    Took a while, but I think I've come up with a fix that should be clean enough and fix the issue! Sorry about the long delay!

  • #1438

    I'll look into it, I know the alt item alerts (Revenge, Shadowburn, Execute, etc) are due for an overhaul. The problem with them is handling the difference between abilities that are up pretty constantly in combat but can also be refreshed by a proc and the abilities that only happen under certain conditions.

    Things like Revenge, Mangle, etc are still a bit problematic, so I'll have to figure something out.

    Thanks for the report!
