About ezInterrupt

ezInterrupt is an addon designed to simplify the task of interrupting during boss encounters.

• Shows an icon and plays a sound ("cast alert") when you can interrupt (only if your interrupt is not on cooldown and the cast is interruptible).
• Spell filtering allows you to suppress unwanted cast alerts (for Release Aberrations on Maloriak for example).
• Cast alerts are available for your target or focus (whichever you specify).
• Can announce your interrupts in a variety of ways (including whispering another player).
• The interrupt message is fully customizable.
• Zone settings allow you to control where the addon will be active (only in raids for example).
• All interrupts are supported.

Feedback and comments are appreciated. Please report bugs or problems by creating a ticket. If you want to help translating the addon into another language, please use ezInterrupt's localization page.

Planned improvements: better support for interrupt rotations, slash commands, GUI improvements.

Revision 35 adds option to flash the screen on cast alert, adds missing Moth pet interrupt, fixes the "spell removed from blacklist/whitelist" message and adds two new sounds.
Revision 34 allows you to customize each of your interrupt abilities, adds support for Strangulate and Arcane Torrent.
Revision 26 adds code to handle cast alerts properly when auras that give immunity to interrupts are cast or fade (only in PvE). This might not work correctly yet.

Slash Commands
Currently there are no slash commands available. ezInterrupt's configuration options are located in Blizzard's addon options.

Known issues
• In untranslated non-english versions of WoW, cast alerts do not work correctly with pet interrupts because translated pet types are required for the code to work.
• A few spells, such as Al'Akir's Electrocute, are erroneously flagged as being interruptible when they are not. This is a problem with Blizzard's code. I recommend adding these spells to the blacklist.

    For the love of all that is holy, someone PLEASE update this addon, its by far the best interrupt mod ever made.

  • #28

    im new to coding and ive spent some time playing around with this addon. i believe below is a quick fix for it. Not 100% sure if it completely works, but it seems to get the basic functionality back with the addon.

    In the core file (ezintterupt/core.lua) do the following:

    Line 942 change to: self.Interrupt[2].enabled = GetPrimaryTalentTree() == 2

    Line 1001 add: self:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_TARGET_CHANGED", "UpdateTarget", "target")

    If you want to include monk i believe just add the following

    Lines 84/85:  -- Monk

    [116705] = {userenabled = true, id =116705, sound = "ezInterrupt: Ding", rgb = {1, 0, 0}}, -- Spear Hand Strike

    Line 779/780:  elseif class == "MONK" then

    self:LoadInterruptSettings(1, 116705) -- Monk Interrupt


    Any suggestions / help would be greatly appreciated as i believe together we can get this addon up and running again.

    Today, in my frustration, I went digging about for a replacement.  There is Focus Interrupt Sounds and it seems to do pretty much the same thing as ez did, but without errors.

  • #25

    Does anyone know a good replacement ? It seems the creator has quit WoW (source: )

  • #24

    Hoping for an update

  • #22

    Would be nice to have this working again. I can't find any replacement

  • #23

    Same here, This was exacly what I needed. I can`t find anything with a good sound. Plus they seem more focust on telling me what I interupted. I tryed FocusInterruptSound but it alerts me on things that cant even be interrupted.

  • #19

    Any chance of a MoP update? Thanks!

  • #20

    Well, the quick fix is to remove all of the lines 931-939 (shown below), because the talent system has changed:

    if class == "PRIEST" then
    self.Interrupt[1].enabled = select(5, GetTalentInfo(3, 11, false)) > 0
    elseif class == "HUNTER" then
    self.Interrupt[1].enabled = select(5, GetTalentInfo(2, 7, false)) > 0
    elseif class == "ROGUE" then
    self.Interrupt[2].enabled = select(5, GetTalentInfo(2, 14, false)) > 0
    elseif class == "PALADIN" then
    self.Interrupt[2].enabled = GetPrimaryTalentTree() == 2

    Then ezInterrupt will be usable again with the old basic interrupt skills. But still it has to be adapted to new or changed skills.

    On r40, even if I interrupt, there is no announcement for interruption properly sometimes.

  • #16
    Update to r38 for patch 4.1 compatibility.
  • #13
    Is it possible to alert about focus and target both? Also option to reset icon to its original position would be good with option to change its size.
  • #14
    Also add support for purge spell for ele shamans.
