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)

    Also, I'll try to have a look, and see if I can reproduce the error, but not too sure when.

    Please try loading RSA with all other addons turned off, and see if you're still getting the error. If you are, go to your WoW Folder/WTF/Account//Saved Variables/ and delete RSA.lua and RSA.lua.bak if it exists. Then log back in, and try once again without any other addons on, see if it loads correctly please. If it does, then try turning on your other addons, and see if it still works or not. Thanks :)
  • #269
    Works without addons... damn, now to find the addon conflicting with my load of them...
  • #265
    Hi there!

    For some reason, the addon doesn't announce Strangulate interrupting a cast. I get the message in my combat log, but RSA won't react. What gives?

    ty!
  • #266
    It seems somewhere along the lines, they made this spell:http://www.wowhead.com/spell=32747

    do the interrupting, so you cast Strangulate, and it casts Strangulate and this spell called "Interrupt". That's why. Several other spells work this way too, thanks for the report.
  • #280
    This was fixed in 2.541 btw.
  • #263
    Can we manually add another spell? Couldn't find how if we can
  • #264
    No, you can't do that in RSA just yet I'm afraid - and though it is something I do want to allow eventually, I fear it may make the addon a bit too complex for what it was designed, such a thing may come entirely as it's own addon, but we'll see.
  • #260
    Is there any way (and i"m sorry if this has been asked already) to add an option for GS announce, if it is actually consumed or if it just fades off.
    I know it won't change anything in a fight since there is no difference in cooldown anymore but I do like to know in a raid fight if the tank/player actually died or if the buff just ran out. It's not always easy to see when there's a lot of damage incoming and that health boost from it getting consumed gets taken away rather quickly.
  • #261
    Aye, it is something I plan on adding :)
  • #258
    Is there any chance an announcement for Divine Plea could be added? As of now I add it each time I download a new version, but having it incorporated would be much easier.

    Thanks!
  • #259
    Shouldn't be a problem.
  • #252
    For "Soothe", I guess it should be handled just like "Remove Corruption", not as "Growl" like I mentioned.
