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: Tried to fix bug with paladin Holy Power tracking.
Bugfix: Fixed issue with sound effects not playing.
Change: Removed unstackable Brain Freeze and replace it with Stacking Brain Freeze.

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

    But adding these 2 events would be really great!

    Is there a way to control font size? I thought there used to be.
  • #848
    There is a way to change the font size on the timer. Is that what you're wanting to do?

    Hey bud,
    Just want to say thanks for providing a great addon.
    I just wanted to inform you that there can be a few more procs that can be added. mostly for elemental shamans; Fulmination and Lava Surge. Fulmination on the 9th proc off your lightning shield and lava surge for the refresh on Lava Burst.

    Would greatly appreciate it if they were added:D

    Thank you,
  • #847
    I added the Lightning Shield proc in 4.5.0. Still trying to decide how I want to go about setting up the abilities like Lava Burst. :)

    Hi there. firstly ty for a great addon truly great work.

    noticed a little bug, as with the latest 4.4.1 i have a custom spell Thunderstuck under prot warriors or 87095
    still gets stuck at times Also can you track it so it shows the stack count & time left? i.e so the name of the spell has a shortened to TSx3 or something similar Ty

    I think Acrance Missiles! is still not being tracked too dude,

    Thanks and happy owning

    This should be working now in 4.5.0. Remove it from your custom spells so it works properly. :)

    If this is still happening when you load up 4.5.0, then close WoW, delete your EventAlert saved variables file, then load WoW up again. See if that fixes it. :)

    Works fine with my Mage, but I can´t choose a Sound. Only Shaybell works. I want my Flute back ;(
  • #844
    This should be fixed now. :)
