About RSA - Raeli's Spell Announcer

Requests, Bugs & Known issues

Please use Curse's Curseforge ticket tracker to create requests, suggestions, or post bug reports:


RSA, Raeli's Spell Announcer, by Raeli of Arathor-EU (Now Maintained by Jenneth), is an addon that aims to help players with the announcement of certain spells, as well as reminding you of important missing buffs. For example, it can detect when you cast Divine Protection, and it will send a message like so:
Divine Protection Example
As you can see, it can announce when it first is cast, and then again when it ends, not only that, but you can customise the messages that are sent.

Type /rsa in game to open in game configuration, or access it through the Blizzard Interface panel.

Spell Announcements

There is the ability to create custom message announcements, you can use certain tags to say what the target is and so on:

  • [SPELL] will be replaced with the name of the spell
  • [LINK] will be replaced by a clickable spell link of the spell cast
  • [TARGET] will be replaced with the target of the spell (only works with spells that can be put on targets other than yourself)
  • [AMOUNT] will be replaced with the amount of damage or healing done (only applicable to certain spells)
  • [MISSTYPE] will be replaced with the type of spell miss (Such as Miss, Immune, Resist again, only available to certain spells)
  • [AURA] will be replaced with the buff or debuff that is removed by dispels
  • [AURALINK] will be replaced with a clickable spell link of the buff or debuff that is removed by dispels
  • [TARCAST] will be replaced by the spell that you have just interrupted
  • [TARLINK] will be replaced by a clickable spell link of the spell that you have just interrupted

Some of these are only usable for certain spells, each spell lists what is available for you to use in game.

If you want to use a percent sign in your message you need to type it twice: %% to allow it to show, else you will receive errors.

If you leave a Start or End message empty, it will simply not announce that part. So if you only want, to say, announce when Divine Protection ends, you leave the Start message empty, and only have an End message set.

You can set where to announce spells:

  • Local - This sends messages to your own chat window, or the raid warning frame or both depending on your setting
  • Raid - Sends a message to the raid chat, if you are in a raid.
  • Party - Sends a message to the party chat, if you are in a party.
  • Smart Party - Sends a message to either instance chat, raid chat or party chat, depending on group size and location.
  • Say
  • Yell
  • Whisper - only when the target it someone else than yourself.
  • Custom Channel - You can send it to a custom channel, like, say, your healing channel. This option is now unique for each spell, so you can send different spell announcements to different places.
  • You can disable Raid/Party/Say/Custom Channel announcements while you have PvP active, if you are Ungrouped, or if you are not in an instance. Whispers and Local messages will always announce if checked.

Buff Reminder Options

You can set what spell you want to track. You can also:

  • Disable reminding while you have PvP active
  • Enable or disable reminding in your primary or secondary specs
  • Set how often you want to be reminded
  • Set where you want the announcements to be sent (local only - visible only to yourself)

    Is there a way to add the option of sound announcements? (purely for personal notifications obviously). It would do wonders for those who like playing with chat hidden. I for one hide my chat during leveling and questing (I ahve an addon that plays a sound when i receive a chat message). So perhaps a sound notification indicating when the boss dips below 20%. Or what buffs you're missing before the start of a boss fight.

    Hi great addon! Any chance of getting the new Mage spell Amplify Magic added in.

  • #1137

    Hi, sure, please make a ticket at :)

  • #1135

    I'm working on it now, had patching troubles. :)

  • #1134

    I'm surprised there is no update yet, especially since there was a beta version of the addon.

    6.0 and whispers

    In 6.0, having RSA enabled causes your whisper messages to not show. Battle net friend whispers work, but in-game "pink" whispers don't work.

  • #1138

    Please check the latest version and see if you experience this issue there, too.

  • #1132

    Tried the beta version of the mod for warlords, and its giving errors.  Is there a newer version?


  • #1139

    Now there is. Please try the latest version. :)

  • #1129

    Constantly telling me that my Spear Hand Strike was resisted on a successful interrupt >.>

  • #1128

    I'm having issues with getting a hunter's Deterrence to announce in say chat.  I've tried every option available, but nothing is making it work.  I have Distracting Shot set up to announce in say chat and that works fine.  Any help?  Thanks.

  • #1127

    Just got back to WoW after a while off. For some reason now my RSA is not annoucning when I'm in a party (/p). The instance (/i) annouces are working fine. 

    Any thoughts on how to remedy this?

  • #1125

    After some testing it is Tranquil Grip causing RSA to fail to announce. It still functions if you only have Glyph of Death Grip on.

    Combat logs showing Death Grip w/ Tranq Grip's spellID as 49576, which is in the Dk.lua as death grip. Should be working >_<

    Also, could you add Gorefiend's Grasp?

     EDIT: I've fixed Death Grip and Added Gorefiend's, I moved Death Grip into the SUCCESSFUL_CAST instead of looking for the AURA, because there is no aura with Tranquil Grip, causing RSA to not announce glyphed DG. Changed Death Grip's announces from End to Start, (Otherwise it would always say the resist message on successes, although you could just change the resist message to the success message, but OCD. :D).

    This has stopped working for me on all of my characters and I am not sure why. I uninstalled it and re downloaded it and still is giving me issues.

    I tested it and can use it out in the world. But in any group it just will not work. Yes I have the boxes checked to work in the correct groups lol

  • #1121

    Have used this in the past so I understand how to configure. However, after installing this addon today there are zero spell announces, regardless of whether I am in the world, lfg, raid etc. No output at all. It appears the addon is broken.
