About HunterHelper


HunterHelper is a lightweight addon that helps you, the talented hunter, by increasing your situational awareness while you're in combat. It is based on the excellent ViperNotify addon, by Angelnorn, and is essentially an extension of that addon, posted with her permission. As of v1.81, this addon is localized in English, Spanish, French and German.

HunterHelper provides the following notifications:

  • You have entered combat with a potentially harmful Aspect (Cheetah or Pack).
  • You have entered combat without a pet
  • Your pet is growling when it shouldn't be, or isn't growling when it SHOULD be
  • Your pet is set to Passive or Aggressive, both of which can cause problems in groups
  • Your pet is low on health or has died

Each of these warnings can be enabled, disabled, customized and "snoozed" (temporarily suspended for a time).

HunterHelper sits in the background and notifies you in each of these situations by displaying a message to the screen, either as combat text or as a raid-style warning. It is fully customizeable and includes a configuration interface, as well as a variety of console commands (type "/hh" for a list).

See the included "readme.txt" for more information and frequently-asked questions.

  • Updated TOC for WoW 6.2

    Would it be possible to separate the warning options for Cheetah and Pack?  When Cheetah is glyphed, it actually is not harmful and is quite useful!

  • #249

    This, i use cheetah often.

  • #247

    Can you update this addon to include lone wolf? When lonewolf is active, will give a warning when you do have a pet out. When lonewolf is not active, will give a warning when no pet is out.

  • #246

    thank you !

  • #244

    I've released my first update for HunterHelper.
    In this version I've fixed a sound issue, and made it compatible with Patch 6.1.

  • #245

    That was quick. :)  Thanks for taking care of that!

  • #243

    Hi everyone.  If you're still here and still interested in HunterHelper, I'm pleased to announce that this addon has a new Author, CBruyland.  He's graciously offered to take over development on this addon since I've retired from WoW.

    Feel free to continue posting your comments and questions here or on CurseForge.  And as always, have fun. :)

    It looks like the Hunter Helper addon will be going away as soon as the pre-exansion patch goes live in a couple of weeks. As no one has picked it up yet. I did get it enabled for beta, but with the changes to the class it is just about useless, as I am not skilled enough to make changes to it, beyond enabling it. I hope some can pick it up. I hate to see it go the same way as the Zhunter mod(best ever hunter addon).

  • #241

    Hey there.  I've come back for a little while - my wife renewed my subscription for a month (and hers as well) so we could check out the new changes and decide if we want to get into Lords of Draenor.  So since I was here, I've posted an update that fixes the latest compatibility issues.

    My hope is that HunterHelper will still be alive and well far into the future, whether I maintain it or someone else does.  Here's hoping someone will take up the mantle soon.

  • #242

    Happy that you are back at least for a little while. I was afraid this addon would go the same way as the zhunter mod. When that one wentv way I had to replace it 5 different addon.


  • #239

    Sad to see you go, I've used this addon as a must-have for my hunter for quite a while. I hope some one will take over development!

  • #237

    aww dang! I liked this addon! If anyone takes over this addon they can fiddle with this error

  • #238

    I assume there was another patch recently that broke this feature?

    Does someone actually want to take over development?  I've had no takers yet...

  • #236

    Thanks for this great addon, KeiferSkunk! It's sad to see you go, your receptivity to suggestions and your efforts to make HunterHelper better and better were fantastic! Have fun with whatever you're doing now, and good luck!

  • #235


    Just want to say thank you!  You've saved my bacon in groups/raids MANY times (i.e., switch pet, come from questing - forget to take growl off; leave raid/group and forget to turn growl back on! LOL!). Damn... another hunter retiring.... :-(

    Don't forget your friends here on Azeroth!!
