About

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)

    Getting a bug with hunter's misdirect target. Aura applied message is showing [TARGET] instead of the target of Misdirection, but strangely the ending message correctly replaces the placeholder with my target. In my case, I'm getting this message with my pet while soloing, and it only started in the last few days.

    Thanks for the report! This has been fixed in the latest alpha.

  • #1166

    If there is someone else willing to help maintain RSA, I would be more than happy to give you rights on curseforge to do so, but as I haven't played in years, I can't really do much to keep it updated, and it seems that perhaps Jenneth is no longer able to maintain the addon. So if anyone else is willing to, feel free to PM me.

  • #1165

    Alternative to this addon?

  • #1164

    Not sure this addon is still supported. No updates since 2014. Looking to add Eternal Flame for Paladins (WOG replacement)

  • #1163

    Please add Nature's Vigil for druids to RSA

  • #1169

    Thanks for the suggestion. This has been added to the latest release.

  • #1162

    This addon doesn't work with 6.1 patch. An immediate update is highly required!

  • #1168

    Can you post more information, please? I use RSA in game daily, and it appears to work fine.

  • #1161

    I'd like to add spells to this addon, but I'm not sure how. For example, I tried adding Amplify Magic announce tracker, but I couldn't get it to work.

    If Raeli or Jenneth can help me out, maybe I can help maintain this addon.

  • #1167

    Sorry for the delay. Amplify Magic has been available in the alpha version since last October, I will make a release version today.

  • #1160

    Coud you also add support for rogue's Cloak of Shadow? (spellid 31224)

  • #1170

    Thanks for the suggestion! I've created a ticket for this: http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/rsa/tickets/293-rogue-add-cloak-of-shadow/

  • #1159

    Hi, I like the addon very much apart from 2 things.

    1. I wish it supprts hunter's "Aspect of the Fox". I'd like to annouce it when I cast it and when near its end with customizable message.

    2. I wish it supports an announcement when an interrupt spell is casted, before it becomes sucessful or missed or immuned. Sometimes ppl interrupts too early or too late to really interrupt anything but I still want that action announced.

    Thank you very much for your work in making this addon!

  • #1155

    Hi,

    as a Frost DK, I'm using "Strangulate" a lot. A day ago, I have installed the latest version of RSA but noticed that when succesfully using "Strangulate" to interrupt a boss, RSA nevertheless announces "(boss) is immune to strangulate"! Why is that? This is not the case when successfully using "Mind Freeze". Here, RSA properly cinfirms "(boss) interrupted"! Can this be fixed soon?

    Thanks!!!
