About Prat 3.0

Prat-3.0 is a chat enhancement addon for world of warcraft 3.0.

It is made up of 30+ smaller "modules" which each provide additional functionality, and can be enabled or disabled individually.

In game, type /prat for a menu.

Bug reports:

Forum thread:

Prat has just about every feature you can think of, and then some. Really. When I get some more time, I'll try and put together a full list (Even I have lost count)

(Thanks to Dreamsight for this partial list)

  • Change arrows, buttons, mouse scroll for chat scroll, scroll speed
  • you can add color per channel, color per lvl, color per class
  • timestamps
  • timestamp color
  • whether to show timestamp (what format the timestamp should be in)
  • whether to show players lvl
  • you can select the option for channel "stickys" (last channel you used you auto use when hitting enter, that sort of thing – or last thing someone said)
  • change the looks of the chat's editbox - as well as where it appears (you can even undock it and move it to where you'd like it to be)
  • chat fading, fading delay
  • You can change the font to a list of fonts, add an outline to it, monochrome it (if you don’t mind messing with files a bit you could prolly even add other fonts to that list)
  • change the chat frame/chat box appearance
  • set Chat history
  • set channel abbreviations
  • set brackets and color(or something instead of brackets)round player/lvl
  • alt invite option (press keyboard “alt” button and click on the player’s name to auto inv them)
  • raid icon
  • invite links
  • info keeping
  • url copying
  • full chat copying + options (html,bbcode, plain, forum) + copy button
  • allows pop-up msgs
  • enables tell target /tt
  • Alias options
  • altnames options
  • you can enable/disable all prat modules - dont have to have the ones you dont use running
  • change chat sounds (incoming and outgoing as well as per channel)

Its predecessor, Prat-2.0 has been around since the TBC release in 2006. This new version seeks to improve upon some aspects such as memory use, but still do so without creating 30+ small folders in your addon directory that you have to manage.

While trying to reduce resource utilization, it is also important to note that some people prefer the features, and don't care that an addon uses 500k more. I have been trying to isolate the most resource intensive functionality into the Prat_HighCPUUSageModules folder. You can enable or disable it per your preference.

    I used to be able to type

    /w H

    and regardless of them being online a list of names would come up with everyone in the guild who's name started with a H (for example).

    Since patch, this isn't working anymore! Please fix this!!!

  • #3678

    Font Request for Disablility

    Hello developers! Thank you for this wonderful addon. It's one of my favorites! 

    I am dyslexic (insert jokes here) and would absolutely love to see a dyslexic-friendly font addition to the addon. has a free one that works wonderfully for people like me. Thank you for your consideration! 

  • #3676

    All ingame links, items, abilites etc show the level of the one linking. How do i turn this off?

    Re: Prat 3.0 global channel

    My global channels doesn't work and it's gray in settings. How can i fix it?

  • #3671

    While Prat is very good at detecting ppls class it seems slower in detecting their levels, I have to do manual /who searches on my guildies all the time to update their level in chat.

    You can have WoW chat settings set up to show class automatically without an addon. Unfortunately, I agree about the lag in levels. Not worth it imo.

  • #3675

    Same trouble.

  • #3670

    Prat 3.0 is currently causing the chatbox to lock to a specific width (very narrow) when trying to resize it, and won't allow any incoming message types (gchat, say, etc) to be turned on. It's effectively broken for me right now. Disablind the addon resolves these issues.

  • #3672

    Have you tried deleting your settings for the addon?

    Whenever I use up/down arrows to access previously typed line a space is added in front of it making /commands being typed in chat instead of executing.

  • #3665

    Is there any way of turning off the hiding of long messages that don't fit the chat window?
