About HunterHelper

HunterHelper

ATTENTION: As of 4/26/2013, I have stopped playing World of Warcraft and do not intend to make any further updates to this addon. If you are interested in taking over its development, please get in touch with me and I'll happily discuss it with you.

It has been an honor serving the Hunter community. May your arrows always hit their targets.


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 no Aspect selected, or your current Aspect is Pack or Cheetah
  • 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.

v1.994
  • Updated TOC for WoW Patch 5.2.

ATTENTION: I have stopped playing WoW and will no longer be maintaining this addon. If you are interested in taking over, please send me a note on Curse.com and I'll happily chat with you about it.

It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve the Hunter community. May your arrows always hit their targets.

    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!

  • #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

    KieferSkunk,

    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!!

  • #233

    Does this addon also disable growl when u enter a dungeon/raid? I am looking for an addon that does this for me.

  • #234

    I'm afraid HunterHelper doesn't actually change your growl settings (or any other settings) - it simply notifies you when they're not what you want.  By default, it will ding at you immediately when you enter a 5-man group or a raid and your growl is turned on.  This is fully customizable.

    I don't believe addons are actually allowed to change any settings without the player clicking on a button, so the best I'd be able to do is put a button on your screen saying "Fix this" or something to that effect.  This is due to Blizzard's script security model.

  • #231

    Is this up and running for 5.1, and will it be for 5.2? Thinking of wether to get it or not, but I got a bit put off as I don't want to deal with all the bugs mentioned in the comments

  • #232

    The addon is fully up to date for 5.1, and as soon as 5.2 comes out and I have a chance to update things, it'll be up to date there as well.

    As for bugs: The vast majority of bugs reported here have long since been fixed.  There have been some reports of issues that I haven't been able to repro, but I try to be very quick about either fixing an issue or asking for more information to help track it down (such as conflicts with other addons).  The best I can say is to just try it and see if it works for you - you can always disable or uninstall it again. :)

    Re:No Combat Aspect

    The aspect reminder needs update in light of Aspect of the Fox being removed from the game. When I have Aspect of the Iron Hawk active it keeps yealing at me that I have no combat Aspect. I had to turn HH off it was such a bother.    

    it is still doing this for me. had to turn it off as well.

  • #230

    Did you update to v1.992 (just out last night)?

  • #228

    I just posted the update.  Having them remove Aspect of the Fox was totally unexpected on my part.

    Thanks for the report!

  • #223

    I done a /reloadui during a 40 man fight with lots of lag which crashed the wow client. On reentering the game the loading screen would stop. I deleted the cache/interface/wtf folders which fixed the problem. When I reinstall hunterhelper though the problem persists. Delete the addon and I can get ingame again. I really need this addon, what can I do to get it to work?.

  • #224

    Wow, that sucks!  I haven't heard of that happening before.

    Have you tried completely deleting all of your addon folders (including and especially all of the Blizzard ones) and reinstalling them from scratch?  The Blizzard addon folders get created automatically at startup, but there was some sort of bug in the Pandaria update that caused issues for some people, and just deleting the entire Addons folder seems to fix that.  I would try that first and see if it helps.

    If you're still having problems, could you give me a list of the addons you're running, in addition to HunterHelper?  The biggest source of problems I can think of would be a conflict between HunterHelper and another addon.
