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.

    Still great Addon, can't w8 for update. Keep up good work.
  • #314
    This works with my Mage's counterspell, but is not working with my Paladins Rebuke. Would this have something to do with the new talentless ability?

    Also, the shaman has no "Spell Options" and so doesn't support Wind Shear, or anything else.
  • #315
    Sorry if this was posted already...
    The spell ID for rebuke changed, so you need to edit the Paladin.lua and change all instances of 85285 to 96231. I think there are 3.
  • #319
    I'll be putting an update on shortly, it's fixed in that version, Thanks again for spotting it, ROMAD27.
  • #312
    Hunter module is not loading correctly or is not included in the current package(?). I deleted the RSA both manually and using the Curse Client, I double checked the folders but there is no RSA_Hunter folder containing Hunter.lua or RSA_Hunter.toc. Please advise.

    On a sidenote, Thank you very much for this addon and for your hard work, I love it!
  • #313
    Apparently the Hunter stuff hasn't been added, I apologize, I thought they already had been since it was telling me in-game that the Hunter folder was not loading and I should erase the folders and re-install.
  • #318
    Sorry, that's just a generic message. I haven't added the Hunter things yet I'm afraid, no :/
  • #309
    Has Skull Bash been fixed in this patch, do you know?
  • #310
    It has!

    I'm going to correct the Druid module now to make it work \o/
  • #311
    Nice one. :)
  • #306
    Hey there, This addons looks great and can actually do pretty much everything i want it too. There is a couple of questions i have though if thats okay.

    1.) Does the addon account for all paladin specs now have rebuke? Ie; will i be able to announce it on a Holy Paladin?
    2.) I also noticed you said below that it wasn't working atm. Do you know whether it'll be fixed today? Can't get the addon set up for raiding if its not working hehe :)
  • #307
    You can use v2.552 for now, I am uploading a new version though in a moment or two, which has everything working and fixed.
  • #308
    Fantastic :) I didn't realise in what way it was broken until a few moments ago. I have been able to set everything up fine, its now just the annoucing i am keen to try :)

    I have to say though, its great to see an addon author reply so quickly to concerns, and fix problems when they arise as quickly as possible.
    If i had the option i'd rate not only this addon a 10/10 but also you as an Author 10/10.
  • #303
    As of today, patch 4.0.6, the announces are not working in anything other than whispers, and not sure why that is. I've changed all the options so it's not disabled for anything other than PvP, and still persists.
  • #304
    To follow up on this, it seems I can get it to work with crowd control (at least Hex) and interrupts (Wind Shear) but can't get it to work with anything else (Resurrections, Guardian Spirit, Lightwell) via raid, party, local, say or custom channels in raid, party or alone.
