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)

    tried a quick search and no results.

    Any way to track more than one buff for reminding? And alsop separate reminders for each specs?


    For example I want to track RF and BoM for my prot pally and just BoM for the Ret.

  • #1146

    For monk's, everytime my paralysis breaks the chat pops up with [MISSTYPE] instead of it giving the correct response of it being broken/ended w/e. If it's resisted or immune its fine, only gives me the [MISSTYPE] when its broken by someone or runs out on its own. Just wondering if anyone else has this issue?

  • #1145

    2-part question

    1) Is it possible to make it so Grounding totem only reports when it either gets destroyed or absorbs a spell, and not BOTH at the same time?

    2) When I use Glyph of Grounding Totem for spell reflects, RSA announces when I put it down, which it normally does not do unglyphed.  It also reports back Xzibit-style,  [Grounding Totem] absorbed [Grounding Totem]'s [Grounding Totem], which is hilarious but makes no sense. This happen to anyone else?

    Any chance of being able to add additional abilities to the spell announce section?  Gouge, Kidney Shot, Cheap Shot, Quaking Palm, etc?

  • #1143

    Is there any way i could set it to announce only succesfull spell reflection and pummel? By default it's announcing almost everything.

  • #1142

    yes pls add the cd amplify magic for mages ty.

  • #1141

    love the addon. Is there (or am I missing) a way to add the raid cd amplify magic for mages? my healers need to know when ive cast it.

    Many thanks


  • #1140

    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.

  • #1136

    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?
