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.

This mod tracks the following events/procs:

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.

    Dear lovely developer :)

    I'm having problems with EventAlert. I play a Warrior and eventalert shows the following proccs:

    Overpower, Victory Rush and Revenge.

    ALL the other Proccs are not displayed. (Battle trance for example).

    I tried, to delete the WTF folder and also to reinstall WoW. Both didn't fix my problems.

    EventAlert is one of the essential Addons im using so I'd really love to get it to work again.

    getting a error when trying to remove custom spells.. anyone have any idea what to do?..
  • #1153
    Thanks a lot Atermors now it works again perfectly ;)
  • #1148
    Easy to fix:
    Lines 90 - 93 add one to the numbers.
    8 to 9
    9 to 10
    10 to 11
    13 to 14
    (don't touch the 2)
  • #1150
    does not work for me. Do you change all the numbers in that lines or only the first?
  • #1151
    local EA_arg7 = select(7, ...);
    local EA_arg9 = select(9, ...);
    local EA_arg10 = select(10, ...);
    local EA_arg13 = select(13, ...);

    local EA_arg7 = select(8, ...);
    local EA_arg9 = select(10, ...);
    local EA_arg10 = select(11, ...);
    local EA_arg13 = select(14, ...);

  • #1152
    Thanks a lot. Works now without changing the var name :)
  • #1149
    forgot to say file is main.lua in the lua dir of EventAlert.
  • #1147
    4.1 broken :(
  • #1146
    Being an arms warrior, changing stances has become a frequent thing from berserker to battle. Lambs to slaughter and taste for blood procs are NOT showing in berserker stance. They show only when i switch to battle stance. Is there anyway to make it show or can you please add it in?
  • #1144
    ok my question is can u add spell id 53365(fallen crusader proc name)and 85032(Vicious Gladiator's Insignia of Victory proc name) they would be very much help full to me and i am sure others who play dk's since it is important to follow your procs and use cd's accordingly
  • #1143
    how do i get a proc alert for Rune of the Fallen Crusader(spell id 53344) and Vicious Gladiator's Insignia of Victory. i added the spell id of fallen crusader but i don't see anything after i added it
  • #1145
    C'mon nicodemus you seriously post this question about fallen crusader RIGHT above mine saying that it worked? Oviously you are adding the wrong spell I.D. you have to ad the I.D. from the buff not for the rune. Its called unholy Strength (53365). Can anyone tell me why swordguard embroidery wont work though?
  • #1142
    Please add Swordguard Embroidery to your pre configured list. I tried to add the spell ID (55777) myself and it would not work for me :( However Unholy Strength (53365) from Rune of the Fallen Crusader did work but it procs almost all the time so it wasn't as much needed. Good addon there are alot of people looking for this addon as they should be its a great idea.
  • #1141
    Can we get a stacks of Lambs to the Slaughter with the icon please. I'd really love it. Thank you for your good work so far.
