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.

    i still get the drinking notice in random BGs even though i disabled it in the options (only allowed it for arenas)

     problem still exists. is it intended to do that (or only in RBGs) or is it a bug etc etc

    an answer would be nice

    I think that Gladiatorlossa causes wow to freeze (not 100% sure). This never happened to me before. Is it even possible that an addon can cause wow to freeze ?

    Anyway you can add an option for Procs as well? I sometimes miss when something procs because there is so much going on at the time and notice it right as it goes away.

    your proc? or opponents? cause if is for yours there are plenty addon that do it ;)

    also procs are anyway buffs that many time are unavoidable to react cause of many other buff up on target ;)

    Do you know of any that actually say the spell out loud, for example [3 holy power] or [hammer of wrath] (I'm a ret pally) like Gladiatorlossa does? Cause I can't find anything like that and if it doesn't exist yet it would be a really good addition to this already excellent addon.

    i still get the drinking notice in random BGs even though i disabled it in the options (only allowed it for arenas)

  • #176

    You can add Divine Favor spell. It is a paladin big cooldown burst spell. Add too Pyroblast! and Brain Freeze, it is a mage burst proc, and they can be prevent beacause it is a buff to be casted. Thank you.

    Drinking and eating alert can't be set. For exemple : Allow alerted only by ennemies eating in Arena/BG/Outdoor or only the focus/target Thank you

  • #178

    "drinking" call work only in arena

    i will add divine favor but for  brain freeze is imho usless cause when it pop many mage wil shatter combo

    Brain Freeze Your most recently applied Nether Tempest, Living Bomb, or Frost Bomb spell has a chance when it deals damage to grant you the Brain Freeze effect.

    The Brain Freeze effect causes your next Frostfire Bolt to be instant cast, cost no mana, and act as if your target were frozen for 15 sec.
  • #174

    Ok, thank you very much for your response.

    Another suggestion : Allow sound volume conrtol for all sounds, and EACH spell. It will be usefull to have a high volume sound for very important spell, and reduced volume for less important spell. Thx

    It is possible to add a spell in the spelllist.lua ? Because when I try with the exact same syntax of other spells, it don't appear in the GladiatorsSA spells list in game, I don't understand. Sorry for my bad English, thank you.
