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.

    When I change the default custom message to something ells it won't announce it at all.
    For example Paladins Devotion Aura. Default start= "[LINK] activated!"

    When I set it to "[LINK] activated ! Everyone 20% reduced Magic damage !" nothing get's reported.

    Edit: I think it has something to do with the length of the message?

    Edit: Guardian of Ancient Kings doesn't get reported at all. Only Smart Group is activated. (There's a "the" in the title?)

    Regarding the %, you need to write %%, that should make it work.

  • #953

    could you please add a CC break Anounce to traps/pollymorph ect, that'd be great :3

  • #952

    In 5.0.4 Blizzard added for any mage over level 70. This stops RSA announcing an interrupt as it is looking for the original Counterspell ID.

    If you could update this I would be very greatful :-)


  • #951

    i dont know what the problem is but seems i cant have anything announced in local without the addon announcing it in smartsay as well next time i relog

    I have other settings and besides it doesnt make any sense, rest of spells dont reset, only those that have local checked

    ps:it happens on savage defense and other cds

    Can you add demo shout for warriors as it is now our "barkskin". Also skull banner and mocking banner. 

    also, it wasnt whispering safeguard on target when I would yet intervene announce was enabled.

    Probably will want to add Avatar usage as well.

    Tanks...You're Welcome!

    Using Rebirth (CR) as a druid will spam the chat with 2 lines of "Casting Rebirth on..." instead of one and the second line "Sucessfuly resurrected..." will be another line of "Casting Rebirth on..." instead of what it is supposed to be.

    I have an odd question : I've been using this addon forever and since the update its been acting a little funny for me. Basically the announces work properly but I only like certain things to be announced in /raid , normally I do this by just having RAID checked - however this doesnt announce anything with it checked.

    So when I move it to "SMART GROUP" it will announce in raid but ALSO in /say ---- Is there a way to disable it from announcing in SAY? It drives me nuts. Thanks in advance for help

  • #947

    Regarding paladin's Devotion Aura.

    When the addon announces that the aura faded, my chat is getting spammed. I think its coz the addon announces that by counting the number of ppl it affected while it was active and gives me equal lines in chat.

    Just downloaded the update, so happy with this addon!! *Cheer* *Hurray* Smile


  • #945

    Would be nice if you could add

    Ancient Hysteria


    Eternal Guardian

  • #944

    Ironbark for (Restro)Druids is missing. Its an external CD like painsup. Would be nice if it had whisper option.

    thank you for all the work you are still putting into this!

  • #943

    sounds good thank you and sorry for the huge error report.

  • #941 how do we fix this?

  • #942

    Wait for an update to come through the works, I'm sure Xad is on it :P
