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)

Fixed issue with spamming in Ashran. RSA now recognizes queued Ashran, Tol Barad, Wintergrasp, etc. as Battlegrounds, and only announces to them if Battlegrounds is checked in the options. (Ticket 304). The individual setting for Tol Barad has been removed.

    Hi there, I was wondering if there's any plans adding Demoralizing Banner? Also, for me when I place Skull Banner it does announce it, however it won't announce when it ends.

  • #985

    symbiose does not work - no posts in chat

  • #984

    I noticed that the Monk Ability "Revival" is not in this addon.. Is there any way to manually add it?  This is our only major CD for healing really..

    Dan what are you guys up to now anyway? Saw the guild site has finished so just wondered. I kept looking now and again to see how you were doing.


  • #982


    Mostly just LoL, and messing around on EVE to be honest. Contemplating trying out MoP, primarily so I can update all my addons again, but dunno if I want to spend 50Euros or whatever to get a sub and MoP when I may not even end up playing 30 days.

  • #983

    Yeah true, well keep us up to date what your doing! :)

  • #979

    Zen Meditation is bugged if you're in a LFR and get "mindcontrolled" and he uses it, it spams the chat to oblivion.

    Pala CD Guardian of the Ancient Kings is spelled wrong and will not be announced or iam too dumb to get it right - its spelled "Guardian of Ancient Kings" without the "the".


  • #976

    That's just the text , it has no effect on the spell itself. If, however, there is an issue with the spell, it's unrelated to the text that the addon displays.

  • #980

    It's not working for Guardian of Ancient Kings when prot specced. It is when Ret specced. Level 90, wearing no sets that modify the spell. Dual profile disabled. Initially set up options while in prot spec.

  • #977

    can you check this maybe if you have some time 4 this? :D

  • #974

    You've missed monks "Grapple Weapon" and possibly "Tiger's Lust" by the looks of it, would be awesome if these were in this addon as well. Awesome addon otherwise, been using it for years.

    Would greatly appitiate if buff reminder section would get an upgrade, for example, im lock and im checking if Dark intent is up, mage buff is a bit better and it overwrite sit, so it keeps sapamming that DI is missig. Also how can i set up few more buffs? Or it only works with 1 buff. Thanks in advance!

  • #973


    I did have lots of plans to improve it, specifically for things like this, and allowing multiple buffs being tracked, but it basically meant rewriting that whole section of code, and it wasn't something I got around to before I quit, now with me not playing, I'm not sure that it's something that would be very easy to accomplish, being unable to test it - Xadurk who is now maintaining and updating the addon may do this if you ask him nicely, but I have no idea honestly if he's up for that, he's mostly been bug fixing and adding new spells.
