About GladiatorlosSA

Important note: From now, the Chinese users have to download the additional voice pack at this address :


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. The voice sets made by TTS(text-to-speech) is Neospeech US English female Julie. The default voice changes by your locale.

Slash Command

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

For other languages

Now GladiatorlosSA support French, Korean and Chinese 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.

    fix to work on 6.0.2:

  • #289

    It does work! Thanks

  • #285

    Guys, there is a really simple fix. Just load this addon and type "/gsa" in the chat. Klick "Load Configuration", go to "Abilities" and remove every marked ability, which starts with "unknown spell, id:" in every tab. Done. HTH

  • #287

    /gsa and /gladiatorlossa are not working. at least for me.

    even goring to the interface addon tab, there is no gladiatorlossa.

    Well did you enable "out of date" addons?

  • #281

    Ok so i disabled wow sound effects, seemed to help. Guess wow sound effects and add-on sound effects are having problems.Hope this helps some people!

  • #279

    Hello, Are you going to update this addon ?

  • #273

    I got this addon updated and it's working fine on my end.

    Will keep you posted on an update, tho this is not my addon - BUT had to make it work for 6.0.2.

  • #278

    If you update all the Library files under interface\addon\GladiatorlosSA\Libs wherever you have WoW installed it should get the addon to work. I used TellMeWhen as a source for updated libraries.  This is the process I used; it assumes you have an updated TellMeWhen addon installed:

    1. Right click on the WoW launch icon on your desktop, and select Open file location
    2. Open up ...\interface\addon\gladiatorlosSA directory under your wow install directory, and make a copy of Libs directory as a backup
    3. Under ...\interace\addon\TellMeWhen\Lib directory select all files and copy them to ...\interface\addon\gladiatorlosSA\Libs directory

    This should get GladiatorlosSA to load and run. Of course, you're going to get a bunch of Lua errors for nonexistent spell ids, and any new abilities will not be represented, but atleast it will get the addon limping along.

    Note: After playing for awhile, and during PvP combat I have been experiencing occasional brief screen freeze-ups due to  Lua errors generated by GladiatolosSA, and I can assure you this is annoying as fuck and I take no responsiblity for broken computer peripherials such as keyboard or mouse. 

    I haven't been able to track down why this happens, but I've found once this starts happening, if you totally uninstall and then reinstall Gladiator and repeat the above steps it fixes the problem for a while, but then it eventually fucks up again. If you can deal with the work arounds, it will get it back online though.

    Would you mind sharing your updated spell list file with the community by chance?

  • #280

    I did what you said (copied libraries from tmw) then edited the spell list file and removed every spell that no longer exists in game.  I haven't got any LUA errors or lag and I played about an hour of skirmish.
