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)

    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!!!

  • #1154

    Could you also add Amplify Magic and Time Warp from Mages? I would like to be able to announce to help out healers on situations that require intensive healing.

    What he said. <3 :)

    If possible, can you add "Aspect of the Fox" for hunters? I would like to be able to announce it so others are aware of when they can cast while moving in raids.

  • #1149

    Hi! Thanks so much for this awesome addon, I love it.

    I just have a huge favor/question to ask.

     

    Would it be possible to get Monks "Touch of Karma" added to the announced spells? I think it'd be super helpful for healers in my raid to know that they can focus less on me for a little bit when things get rough. It'd be really awesome if it could announce it like other buffs, like when I use Fortifying Brew and possibly state how long Touch of Karma will be active.

     

    Thanks so much for any help with this!

  • #1147

    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?

  • #1148

     

    This was driving me bonkers, but you can manually edit what each message shows and fix it yourself.

    esc > interface > addons > rsa (spell options) > select paralysis in the top right corner

    I haven't used it since updating it, but I changed my "end" section to  "My [LINK] has been removed from [TARGET]!".

     

    Just make sure to click "okay" next to the edited message once you're done :)

  • #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
