About GTFO

Stop standing in fire!

GTFO provides an audible alert when you're standing in something you're not supposed to be standing in. In some cases, you'll be warned before you start taking damage. This mod improves your situational awareness and is recommended for dungeon divers and raiders of all skill levels as even the most seasoned veteran sometimes needs a reminder to GTFO.

It's particularly useful for individuals that play with their spell graphics turned down as well as assisting with PvP when you can't tell who's casting the AOE.

Important Announcement: As with any new expansion or content patch, there may be alerts that are untested as well as encounter changes from Beta/PTR. Bug reports are highly appreciated!

Features

  • 4 distinct audible alerts for different types of damage
    • High Alert - Dungeon/raid encounter AOE that you want to get out of it ASAP
    • Low Alert - PvP and low damage AOE, use your best judgment whether or not to move
    • Fail Alert - AOE you should have moved out of the way of, but it's too late (e.g. KZ void zone, Sindragosa bomb)
    • Friendly Fire Alert - AOE radiating from a teammate's body, one of you needs to move
  • Tuned for dungeons and raids in original vanilla WoW, Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, and Mists of Pandaria
  • Alert you before you start taking damage (when possible, in some cases)
  • Alert you during vehicle fights when your vehicle is in danger (e.g. Malygos, Flame Leviathan)
  • Tank and non-tank specific alerts
  • Visual alerts available when used with Weak Auras or Power Auras Classic (optional)
  • Statistical information of alerts when used with Recount or Skada (optional)
  • GTFO-specific volume slider
  • Small memory footprint and very little CPU usage
  • Option to ignore alerts for trivial content
  • Option to auto-unmute sounds if you play without sound on

Slash Commands

/gtfo - Help menu

Usage

Install and you're ready to go.

You can configure the mod by typing "/gtfo options" or by navigating to Options->Interface->AddOns->GTFO.

To use the "Play sounds when muted" option and still hear GTFO sounds, your "Master Volume" slider must be set to a value higher than 0%.

Weak Auras Integration

GTFO can be set up with Weak Auras to provide visual alerts in addition to (or in lieu of) the audible alerts.

  1. Install the Weak Auras addon
  2. Type "/wa" in game to bring up the Weak Auras menu
  3. Click "Texture", "Text", or "Icon"
  4. Click the "Trigger" tab
  5. Change the "Type" to "Event"
  6. Change the "Event" to "GTFO Alert"
  7. Check "Alert Type" and select a GTFO alert type
  8. Set a short number (like .1) in Duration
  9. Use the other configuration options to fine-tune your alert

Power Auras Integration

GTFO can be set up with Power Auras to provide visual alerts in addition to (or in lieu of) the audible alerts.

  1. Install the Power Auras Classic addon
  2. Type "/powa" in game to bring up the Power Auras menu
  3. Click "Page 1" to create a character-only alert or "Global 1" to create an account-wide alert
  4. Click "new" to create a new alert
  5. Change the dropdown value for "Activation By:" to "GTFO Alert"
  6. Select your alert type: High/Low/Fail/Friendly Fire
  7. Use the other configuration options to fine-tune your alert

Recount/Skada Integration

GTFO can be set up with Recount or Skada to provide detailed statistical information of alerts.

A word of caution: the damage amount displayed on GTFO Alerts may not be fully indicative of the total damage done, especially with fail alerts. For example: if you're hit by a tornado, the damage and fail alert from the tornado picking you up could be 5k, but the fall damage when you hit the ground afterwards is 100k. The amount recorded by Recount/Skada will be 5k.

    Best mod ever. Espcially for the "Ground Effects Challenged" people like moi :)

  • #364

    v4.23.5
    Added Pandaria spells for Pandaria (world)
    Removed Pandaria spells for Throne of Thunder



    Do what now?

  • #365

    Iron Qon's "throw spear" wasn't working too well.  I need to make it so it doesn't sound alerts at times when there's no reason to run from them.

  • #361

    Can you add an alert for anima font (Dark Animus fight)?

  • #362

    I can add it as a fail alert, but I won't be able to warn you that there's a cloud at your feet and it's about to blow up on you because the game doesn't allow addons to detect that.  (Similar to Sha of Fear or Halfus)

  • #363

    Hi, I just wanted to ask for the same thing.  An alert every time I receive damage form it, would be more than enough for me, to make me avare after the first "tick" and tell me "GTFO!" ;-)

  • #359

    Blizzard did a mini patch tonight where I had to log out to patch. This mini patch fixed the sound issue. I can hear gtfo again!!! :D

  • #360

    Same here, I can hear all sounds again :)

  • #358

    Why no alert on Feed pool from boss ji-Kun??

  • #357

    https://twitter.com/Ghostcrawler/status/337333332457185281: Ghostcrawler: We "ducked" sounds not caused by our base UI, and mods unintentionally got caught up in that. We are trying to deploy a fix.

    Let's hope it's soon!

  • #356

    Help me Oprah Winfrey!  Help me Tom Cruise!  Tom Cruise use your witchcraft to make my GTFO make noise again!

    Yeah, it's really jarring to not hear GTFO sounds anymore.  I got rooted in sand traps multiple times during our CoE kill last night.  I feel so exposed...

  • #352

    As of 5.3, GTFO doesn't appear to be making any sounds. All addons seem to be suffering from this. Any idea what we should do? :( 

  • #353

    We wait until Blizzard fixes it. ;(  This is their doing.  If this was by design, they really broke GTFO. 

    Fortunately, the Weak Auras integration is still working so I'm at least seeing the visual alerts.

  • #355

    Ha, you don't realize how much you rely on an addon like GTFO - until it doesn't work and you actually have to play with skill, lol   Here's to hoping for a quick fix from Blizz.  There's a scheduled rolling restart scheduled for this morning, so hopefully there's a hotfix attached to that restart :)

  • #354

    Just so you know, other addons including DBM are experiencing sound related problems as well so I don't think this is aimed at GTFO. I hope things work out quickly. I miss GTFO!
