About KAnnounce

While there are many addons out there that will put messages in chat channels when you personally cast a spell, there are few that will put events into chat channels no matter who casts them. Furthermore, when everyone has their own specific announcing addon, the messages aren't uniform and might output to all the wrong channels. This addon is designed for the raid leader/heal officer that wants to output CD messages to chat, or report in a channel who is interrupting what (in case you're having a problem with Release Aberrations, for example.)

By default, only some raidwide CDs and healing CDs are announced and only to the Chat Pannel, but you can easily add whatever spells you want and announce to mostly any channel you want.

This addon is not as extensive as an addon like ThatJustHappened, instead, simplicity is preferred here over customizability.

Uh oh! Devotion Aura isn't handeled the same way Aura Mastery is - using it under the SPELL_AURA_REMOVED portion will generate a message for every single raid member it's removed from!! I'll have to see if there's a better way to handle this, but for now I'm removing it from the default settings.

    Hey _karova_,

    This is a great addon, and it really seems to fill a void in the raid leader arsenal! We could really use an update to 5.3, and the upcomming 5.4 (just letting ya know folks still use this great addon! A few improvements (or maybe i just lack experience with it and these already exist..) would be nice.

    1) Allow an anouncement when any raid wide CD ends. This would be a simple timer setup so that after the amount of time the ability runs for is over it anounces that it has ended. This allows raid members to stagger their CDS and cover a greater amount of incomming damage rather than 3 people poping all at once. This option may exist with the end aura option, but I haven't played with it too much yet. 

    2) An integrated panel to show CDS of all raid members, with amount of time left until it can be used again (like the Hermes addon) would make this more rounded.

     

    thanks for a great addon!

    Really hoping this gets updated.  Addon like this helps train others of my class because I can set it up to announce to private channel every spell my class uses so I can compare when I use a spell to when anohter of my class uses theirs.

    Oh my goodness! I didn't realise people still used this addon.

     

    Expect an update within the next couple days.

    Hopefully he updates this - not looking good though, sad.

    Cool that you're back! This is definately one of the most handy addons. Can you make it possible to announce the text in Local but in other channels than the first channel?

    I use my first channel for almost everything. So it might be quite spammy. I would like to have the addon announce in Local, but in a somewhat less spammy channel.

    Love this addon, I just wish it worked in /i (instance) chat.

    Lately in LFR we have "pre-mature lusters" and I got this addon so I wouldn't have to scroll through combat logs to find out who did it. 

    If you ever make an addon just for Lust I would love to use it. This works for now and thank you for taking the time to make the addon I've been searching for since I've started raiding :)

    I have a suggestion. Can you add class colors to the names?

    Noticed this ClassColors addon that can support other addons with some codechanges. Would love if you want this.

    Sounds a lot like RSA Spell Announcer which hasn't been updated for 5.0.4 though so gonna give this one a whirl.

    It's actually very little like RSA! RSA is a personal announcer, Kannounce is an announcer that will go off whenever someone uses a spell around you.

    I suppose I could see about adding in an option to only announce your own spells.

    Ah yeah that is true...

    The option to announce your own ones would be nice.
