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: Fixed timers for alerts with more than 30 seconds remaining.
Bugfix: Attempting to fix an ongoing issues with AltItem alerts.

    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!

    How do i stop soul shard from popping up? I turn it off in the options but it doesnt seem to prevent it. Its annoying as hell.

  • #1436

    Strange, I'll look into it.

    Thanks for the report!


    Forgot to mention it when I did, but I pushed a new beta release some time ago that should make sure power alerts won't fire if they are turned off.

    Edit: Well I'm back with some results but they are not very good results. Apparently it's another taint issue, the last one I ran into was eventually fixed but I had to implement a temporary fix for a few patches to get it to stop sending that warning. This time around it seems like it could be hard to fix, unless I made an alpha release that replaced the entire interface menu with slash commands. :( Seems like the best I could do would be to hide the errors as they are fired, but I'd rather leave that decision to the users. I might try to include it in an alpha release if the problem persists, however.

    For more information, read this post. There are some work arounds suggested, but most of them seem to lead to other issues, so I'd be careful about trying to use in game scripts to stop the errors. This one seems safe enough, but again, use it at your own risks.

    Thanks for the reports!

    Ah, it's working now somehow, but I have still problem with my custome spell alert. I've set it to Glyph of Rejuvenation: but it doesn't work. Only preset spells work. 

  • #1430

    It's possible that you simply got the wrong spellID, the spell triggered by the glyph can be found here:

    If this doesn't work, I'll look into it, I did make some druid specific changes in the latest alpha version.

  • #1428

    It is wierd but this addon doesn't work. I thought it could be some issue with another addon, but when I disabled all other addons, this addon still didn't work. Some suggestions?

  • #1426

    Been using this addon for ages, can't live without it! On my feral druid though, when in cat form the mangle icon works fine but if I happen to be in bear form and use mangle, the icon just stays on my screen and won't clear itself unless I do a /reload. I looked over the options but couldn't really figure out what could be causing it to not clear after the mangle proc was over. Thanks in advance! This addon is a must!

  • #1427

    I think I see the problem, it seems like the buff is being tracked as an "AltItem" instead of being tracked as a regular buff, I'm surprised it works at all.

    I'll try pushing an alpha tonight and see the feedback I get here to find out if it worked. xD I won't be able to test it in game, however. :S

    Pushed a new version that should no longer have any issues with spells that were removed from the game still being in SavedVariables or class files.

    I still recommend clearing up your EventAlert SavedVariables after installing the new version.

    If anyone notices issues with this version, just post a comment here and I'll look into it!

    Thanks to everyone who warned me about the issue with priests, bug reports are always appreciated! ;)

    I just downloaded from Curse, and I'm still getting version 5.1.10, and still getting errors even after deleting my SavedVariables.  Has the new version not been put up yet?



    Nevermind, it seems to have come up a few minutes after I posted this.  Thanks again, Menio!

    For some reason alerts won't show up on my priest but on my other characters (shaman and druid) it works like it should.

    Does anyone know what it could be?
