About RSA - Raeli's Spell Announcer

Requests, Bugs & Known issues

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.

    If you're playing in the EU and you still haven't got an invite just send me a PM and I will throw you one.

    RSA will not whisper Lightwell Renew's. Does anyone know a work around this?

  • #875

    That's fixed in v2.838

  • #860

    For those of you who find their RSA is announcing a resurrection twice I think I know the course. For me a least it only started to announce it twice when I turned off the whisper option so that it wouldn't both announce as a whisper to the player and in raid/party chat. But then I also turned off the part that announces the resurrections "success" and didn't get an "echo" after that.

    So basically if you don't want it to whisper the player you're resurrecting then you must also turn off the "success" announcement part.

    Hope this helps.

    So from the looks of things, Requital hasn't posted any updates to RSA, I haven't checked here in quite a while, but it seems he's not updating it either, so I'm looking, asking for anyone that would be willing to take on RSA and maintain it. Please PM Me or even post here in reply, and we can sort something out.

    I am currently updating my wow client, however I still do not have active game time, but just in case I get one of those free 7 days emails from Blizz - if I ever do, I'll make sure to try and work through some of the more annoying bugs here. But that's just a perhaps, it's not keeping the addon up to date, so I still need someone that can do that.

    The code is fairly commented and easy to read, it shouldn't be too hard to sift through - it's not exactly coded well, but it should be easy enough to understand.

    Is There An Echo In Here?

    No matter what I do, whether I reload, reinstall, or restart the addon, whenever I resurrect a character it says I'm ressing then when complete, says I'm casting resurrection again! Why? I see a lot of other people have this issue so what's the solution?


    Thanks in advance,

  • #855

    I think you'll find that you get more help if you aren't a jerk Smile

  • #852

    For anyone having issues with RSA try downloading  RSA v2.834. I had updated to the latest, but had many issues. I've been using RSA v2.834 for months with no problems at all. To me, this is the perfect version until anything further is updated. Try it out, and make sure to check that little box in the top right corner to "load out of date addons."

    Hi, whenever I res someone I get the problem where it repeats the start text instead of the end text.


    For example, here's what I have:



    Die much, [TARGET]? 50g for a [LINK].


    I take cash only.


    Results, I cast resurrection on someone:

    Niketa: Die much, Airrah? 50g for a Resurrection.

    {resurrection is finished)

    Niketa: Die much, Airrah? 50g for a Resurrection.

    To:Airrah: Successfully resurrected. (or whatever the default whisper is


    I've also at times had it where it will repeat the start a couple times during the res, usually on my druid casting Rebirth. That may be due to using grid and clique for the res.

    I reported this problem a few times in the past, and was told to use the Alpha version instead. I did, and it didn't fix the problem - I just gave up on posting. Since I see someone else may be taking this project over, I'm here to give more info.

    This resurrection complete problem has persisted ever since it was implemented, at least for my priest it has. Usually a completed resurrection announcement is a duplicate of the start resurrection message. However, it randomly said I had Power Infused someone as my resurrection complete message once yesterday. Funny thing about that is that PI is set to never raid announce, only whisper.
