About GladiatorlosSA


This is a special addon, it has no interface, but it can speak. It is SOUND ALERT addon leads you to become GLADIATOR, so having the name GladiatorlosSA.

This addon will alert spells using customized voice. For example, when you are in BG or arena, an enemy uses his pvp trinket, a voice of "Trinket" will come out. It can alert many spells(100+), each spell can be selected on or off. Now it has two voice sets made by TTS(text-to-speech), one is Chinese female Xiaoyan, the other is Neospeech English female Julie. The default voice changes by your locale. Now the addon only has these two voices, otherwise you may need to make a set of your own voice and modify the .lua or wait for the author to update it.

Slash Command

Type /gsa or /gladiatorlossa to config. you can select voice set, enable area and which ability to alert

For other languages

After wow5.04, it may takes a lot of work to add the sound files for other languages. We have only make the English one as example by now (Chinese is in progress). If the author of other GSA voice pack want to update it, plz hurry up.

Now GladiatorlosSA support French and German voice and maybe more other voices in the future. But avoiding to make the addon too large, other voice sets will be downloaded and installed separately by yourself. Here is the list for other voice packs. If anyone want to maintain or add new GSA plugins for other language, plz email or PM me.

Special Features

  • Alert invisible abilities such as mage's cold snap, rogue's preparation, hunter's readiness, and all interrupt spells.
  • In arena it can alert the class name when the enemy use pvp trinket.(default is off, and just alert "trinket")
  • Alert big heal for all the four healers' most powerful healing abilities(eg Divine Light, Healing Touch).
  • Alert drinking, resurrection, reviving pet and summon demons.
  • Be silent when the buff isn't at or the spell isn't used by your target or focus.(default is off)
  • Alert when friendly interrupt successfully.
  • Add your own sound file and alert easily.


Why I can't hear any sound of the addon?
  • Make sure your sound effect is open and your sound volume isn't very low.
  • Check if you have disabled your current area in the "enable area" options, check if you have disabled the spells you just want to hear.
I want to hear the addon voice only, with no other game sound, can I?
  • Yes, you can! Just turn down the volume of game sound -> sound effect, music and ambience, But NOT the master volume. Now the new beta version of GSA use the master sound channel.
How to change the addon volume with the game sound volume unchanged?
  • Addon volume is based on the game volume. Someone told me that it's too low and I make it loud enough, and you can turn it down by turn down the game master sound. However, someone want it lower but not lower the game sound. There is an alternate way to solve the problem, you can turn down the mp3 file by yourself. Using a software called "MP3Gain", It can change the volume of mp3 file.
How to add my own voice file and alert?
  • Add your own file eg. myspell.mp3 (must be .mp3 or .ogg here) in the file folder /Interface/GSASound.(by default, but you can also use any other one under your wow root)
  • Type /gsa to show the config, then select "Custom" ,add and config your sound alerts here.
How to make my own voice set?
  • If you want a voice set other than English or Chinese, try to make your voice files with the same names as the files in the folder "Voice_enUS", then copy and overwrite the original files. Select "English (female)" in game, then your own voice set works.
  • If your voice set is very good, and you want to share it with others, just email me and add your voice files as attachment.

    Love the add on but for some reason it wont say "Lichborne" when I fight a DK. However it does say "lichborne Down" when the spell is over. I have checked many times and Lichborne is checked on both the start of the ability and when it's finished.

  • #136

    Is there a way to activate this addon only for my current target and not everyone else around me? It can get quite annoying in a battleground.

    Edit: I spent 3 to 4 hours today setting up Power Auras and using the sound files from this addon. It worked just perfect!

    You should definitely put that up somewhere so I can use it too :P

  • #138

    so with power auras i can ge the same functionality as this addon? and if so i have to spend 3 hours to setup the audio for spells? :D oh boy

  • #135

    Where do I put the file once its extracted?

  • #132

    Any chance you can add combustion to the enemy spell list?

    see alot more fire mages these days and its critical that you dont let combust bring you low, so a call out for that too would be really nice! :)

  • #134

    You can add yourself combustion to the ennemy spell list really easily :)

    First record a sound for combustion and save it as ogg vorbis (you can do this easily with audacity).

    My combustion sound here with my pityful voice :

    Put it into :

    World of Warcraft\Interface\addons\GladiatorlosSA\Voice_enUS 

    and :

    World of Warcraft\Interface\addons\GladiatorlosSA\Voice

    I don't know if gladiatorlossa is case sensitive so I've put two soundfiles "Combustion.ogg" and "combustion.ogg" in the two repertories.


    Then go to : 

    World of Warcraft\Interface\addons\GladiatorlosSA\spelllist.lua

    Open it with notepad, then add in the "cast success --mage category

    [11129] = "combustion", 


    It works fine for me :)

    Hope combustion will be added in a new version, I can't bear my poor voice lol !

    thanks brotha!

  • #131

    Great Addon!

    Is it possible to use it to play a Sound when i have 5 Combo Points on my target?

  • #130

    Hi superk, how can I make it so spell_interrupt is only called on my target/focus? I tried adding or destuid.focus to the conditional but it didn't seem to work.

  • #129


    I wanted to add the "Roar of Sacrifice" spell from the hunter spells as a custom alert.

    I managed to enter the spell ID but then I need to enter a sound file, I wonder if I can find online a female voice generator like the one you are using ? In order to get her to say "Roar of Sacrifice".

    Thanks a lot, great add-on.

    It does not work with announcing Owlkin Frenzy. Its not eben an option on the buffs section. When i try and make a custom announce for it using the effect ID it still doesnt work.. Any way to get this spell announcing?

  • #123

    I like the addon, but by default there are way too many announces for me. So I disabled some of them, but when I tested it in 2s it still announced pretty much everything (not sure if it was everything tho but I remember it anouncing stuff that I disabled) I also restarted WoW before using it in the modified way. Can anyone help me with this?
