About RaidChecklist


RaidChecklist provides an at-a-glance overview of which core buffs, debuffs, dispels and crowd control abilities are available in the raid at the moment, and what class/spec/pet could bring each.

It doesn't try to be a full-featured raid planner, but is instead targeted at those who want a more casual add-on which can assist them in putting together a balanced raid on the fly. It is also very useful for hunters wanting to pick a pet to fill a void in the abilities otherwise brought by the group.

RaidChecklist comes with a plethora of different checklists, and has checklists for each and every class, with multiple options on what to include. Check out the configuration screen for the full list!

There's also a built-in F.A.Q. page available from the add-on settings menu, hopefully answering the common questions and explaining the different colors and icons.

  • Warlords of Draenor / 6.0.2 update. This includes a number of changes to handle the internal game changes made by Blizzard, and a metric truck-ton of database updates.
  • Some languages do not have full compatibility support yet. If you can help with translations, either do so directly at project localization page, or just drop me a message here on Curse and I'll fill it in.
  • If I've missed any changes, please open a ticket to let me know.
  • Note: the mage "Improved Flamestrike" perk is recorded in RaidCheclist as being level 100, though it can, depending on RNG, be available as early as level 92. I don't have a good way to address that, sorry.


  • Compact display in color-coded list format.
  • Shows a count for each ability where it's provided by more than one player, giving even better overview with even a quick glance.
  • Mouse-over an entry brings up tooltip with information on what classes/specs/pets can bring the (de)buff.
  • Clicking an entry opens a detailed information panel on the abilities for that entry.
  • Ability to specify which groups to include in the check, while still seeing what the excluded groups could bring.
  • Hides behind a freely movable button when not wanted.
  • DataBroker integration, and an option to hide the normal button.
  • Keybinding and chat commands (/rcl or /raidchecklist) to toggle the checklist.
  • Updates automatically as pets are summoned or dismissed.
  • Inspects group members "in the background" to obtain their talent information without needing any player interaction.
  • Option to specify in which direction the list appears relative to the button. E.g. "Up, Left" or "Down, Right".
  • Since it's not possible to automatically keep talents/spec/glyphs up-to-date sensibly, RaidChecklist has a small "rescan" button in the top right corner of the checklist.
  • Notifies other RaidChecklist users of any player specialization/talent/glyph changes. This is done in the LibGroupInSpecT library, which is available for other addons to use as well. While Blizzard provides no way of detecting these changes on other players, any user of an addon with LibGroupInSpecT will have this feature! For other players, there is always the manual "rescan" button.

Class-specific Features

  • Per-class check-lists are available, showing only the abilities of that class. Use either for personal improvement, or as the raid leader to remind yourself of what abilities a particular class would bring.
  • Hunter & Warlock Pet Mode. For the hunters and warlocks who don't have to worry about full raid composition and only want to make a smart pet choice. Only shows the abilities which can be provided by a pet.
  • Also aware of a hunter's callable pets, not just the summoned one. Abilities available only from a callable pet are marked in blue. This is only applicable to the hunter himself/herself - this information is not shared to other users of RaidChecklist. To activate this feature you need to visit a stable master once.

Supported Locales

  • enUS - Fully supported.
  • ruRU - Fully supported.
  • koKR - Fully supported.
  • deDE - Functional.
  • frFR - Functional.
  • esES - Functional.

If you can help with translations, head over to the project localization page.

Known issues

  • Talent/spec information can go stale, as the game provides no notification when a group member re/un/talents. Use the "rescan" button to force a refresh.

Found a bug?

If you've found a bug that isn't listed here as a known issue, please open a ticket with the details. The notifications for comments on Curse aren't as reliable as a ticket, so I might not see it for some time (if all).

    I miss my raidchecklist so much!  It is how I determine the composition of my raids whenever I have to fill groups.  Looking forward to the update <3

  • #219

    I'll 2nd this! I feel naked leading raids without it!

  • #220

    It's been updated.  The beta version will work with WoD and should have all major changes.

  • #215

    An update for WoD has commenced!

    I'd recommend against installing any alpha packages at this point as things will be in flux for the foreseeable future (and they will only work on 6.0, not legacy MoP).

    Stay tuned!

  • #217


  • #216

    This is excellent news.  Thank you for your hard work!  I (we) appreciate it.

  • #213

    Some things I noticed when I first installed this addon:

    • Mage's Ring of Frost is a talent, but it is not marked as such. (Area Stuns)
    • Mage's Frostjaw talent is only a silence, and neither the spell tooltip nor comments on Wowhead mention that it would interrupt silence-immune targets. (Interrupts <30s CD)
    • Blood Elf Rogue line corresponding to Arcane Torrent is miscolored. (Interrupts >30s CD)
  • #210

    for some reason i can't get this to show in my datatext (ElvUI's databroker thingy)

    it worked before one of the recent updates

  • #211

    Hmm, that's no good. I've now undone the recent changes to the databroker support, and a 5.4.01beta1 version should appear here Soon(tm). When it's trickled through, could you give that a whirl and see if it's back to working in that version? Thanks!

  • #212

    its working again now :) thanks

  • #207

    Finally found this again! Used it on my Shaman in Cata when I had buff totems. LOVED it then, too! Please, please keep this updated!

  • #208

    Blizz gave me 7 days free game-time, so a release of RCL is incoming! Yell if I missed any of the changes. I *think* I went through and caught them all, but as I'm not actually playing these days, I'm not on top of the abilities like I used to.

  • #206

    In the miscellaneous section - Monks can interrupt - 15 second cooldown - Spear Hand Strike

  • #209

    Thank you! Added in (which should appear here shortly, if not already).

  • #205

    Dark intent also gives stamina, but it is not showing in the stamina tooltip (while there are two mentions of imps).

    Might be an idea to use as an example. In the past I've used that to figure out what pets our hunters should use and I believe it's accurate.

    ps. any chance the icon could be turned into a minimap icon? Would make more sense.
