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.

    Rune Strike worked for me in your 2 earlier releases (since 4.0.1) but now I appear to have the same problem as reiswind2010. What I could add is that the icon sometimes appeared when I had sound enabled, but not once when I had disabled all sound.
  • #866
    Try 4.5.1 and let me know if it's still a problem.
  • #869
    It works now~ thank you for such a quick response
  • #867
    yeah it works now, thanks!
  • #854
    Firstly, thank you for one of the most useful addons I've ever used on a variety of classes over a number of years.
    Secondly could I request an inclusion for the 5th proc of Master Marksman, ID 34487. (MM Hunter)
    I'm not sure it's me but I couldn't see how I could achieve this in the current interface.
    Again my thanks and admiration

  • #858
    I'll add this in the next release. :)
  • #850
    It would be very useful to have the proc "Hand of Light" displayed (Ret Paladin).

    And if EventAlert could generally warn if Holy Power is "fully loaded" (all Paladin specs) all of us pink plate players would be very happy, I guess!
  • #859
    I went ahead and added these as default procs. If you added it via the custom interface like the people below suggested, go ahead and remove it when you download the new version. :)
  • #868
    Actually the default procs still do not do the trick. Anyhow it worked well as a custom event, so I am fine, thanks a lot!

    Regarding the Holy Power issue: Unfortunately it does not give you a buff, so it might not be trivial for EventAlert to catch it at all.
    Anyhow, 'm using a different add-on solely for those "Paladin combo points" now, so everything is perfect for me.

    Thank you again for this great add-on!
  • #853
    add custom spell ID 90174 and it will track Ret Hand of Light Proc
    88819 will track Daybreak procs for holy

  • #852
    If there was any indecent connotation I apologize, it was merely coincidental.

    But adding these 2 events would be really great!
  • #849
    Just wanted to say thank you for very useful addon. It have helped me a lot in many situations when I've needed it.
  • #856
    You're quite welcome. :)
  • #841
    Is there a way to control font size? I thought there used to be.
