About SavedInstances

SavedInstances

An addon that keeps track of the instance/raid lockouts saved against your characters, and related currencies and cooldowns. SavedInstances has the following features:

  • Tooltip display shows current lockouts and data for all your characters, and optionally expired lockouts
  • Secondary tooltip (per-lockout) shows lockout details including bosses available, lock status and time remaining, and can be linked into chat
  • Tracks the valor points, justice points, honor points and conquest points of all your characters, including weekly caps
  • Tracks charms of good fortune and other useful currencies (configurable display)
  • Tracks weekly World Boss Loots (Sha of Anger, Galleon, Oondasta, Nalak)
  • Tracks LFR and Flex bosses looted
  • Tracks holiday boss encounters
  • Tracks daily and weekly quests completed for each toon (mouseover entry to list completed quests)
  • Tracks monthly Darkmoon Faire quests completed for each toon
  • Tracks weekly "special" loots on the Timeless Isle and Isle of Thunder (mouseover weekly quests)
  • Tracks trade skill cooldowns (eg. Celestial cloth, Living Steel transmute, etc.)
  • Tracks farm planting and harvest on Sunsong Ranch (*)
  • Tracks data for all your characters across servers and factions
  • Can be configured to always show your favorite instances so you can use it like a shopping list
  • Tracks Blizzard's 10 instance per hour per account limit (*)
  • New in 5.8: Tracking Bonus Loot Rolls (hidden by default), to help in "gaming" the bad luck protection (*)

Known Issues

SavedInstances is pretty good, but it's still not quite perfect. There are currently a few issues:

  • When first installed, SavedInstances has no knowledge of your other characters: you'll need to log into each for their information to be recorded
  • (*) = Indicates a feature displaying data that cannot be directly queried from the server, but rather is collected by the addon while observing player actions. Actions taken while the addon is disabled, or from other computers, or before a client crash, can result in this display being temporarily out-of-date or incomplete.
  • Lockout time remaining and other features may be off by an hour when your region changes to and from Daylight Savings Time, or if you manually adjust the timezone of your computer.
  • Tracking for the 10 instance per hour limit uses heuristic detection and hence may occasionally be inaccurate (notably when another player has lead and performs explicit resets), but does a reasonable job for common cases.

Usage

SavedInstances will create a new button on the minimap, and you can use it to interact with SavedInstances just fine. The addon can also be displayed using a LibDataBroker-compatible display addon. I personally use Chocolate Bar which works quite well. Finally, you can bind a key or use "/si show" to open a detached window containing the display.

    Getting the following error upon logon.  We cleared a little of DS Heroic last night for testing purposes of new skills etc, and this comes up when I login:

    SavedInstances: ERROR: Refesh() failed to find instance: Dragon Soul : enUS : 967.

    Good, but when I'm on one character it seems to insist on showing a different alt.  I have to hold Alt to see the full list to see the one I'm actually on.

    By default the tooltip only shows characters who are saved to some lockout. You can also configure the tooltip to always show or always hide certain characters. Open the configuration and navigate to the "Characters" subpanel to control how/when each character is displayed. Alt key is the temporary override to show them all.

    Nice addon, recently installed it but It seems to change my tooltips and adds a black boarder around names of spells/items/characters. Tiptac is my tooltip addon.
    This happens after you hover over SavedInstances, tooltips are normal beforehand. Not game breaking but its a little weird. screenshot

    Thanks for the report - Fixed in 4.7.1

  • #140

    Why doesnt it save when you move the tooltip? everytime I log in a different toon the tooltip is in the middle of the screen.

  • #141

    Thanks for the report - fixed in 4.6.5.

    I just want to say this addon is a fanTASTic idea, and it's really nice to see a lockout timer that's being actively updated. Do you plan to keep updating this through MoP, I hope? Laughing

    I get an error message at every login/reload with one character complaining about missing instance.

    The exact error message is:

    ERROR: Refresh() failed to find instance:
    Höllenfeuerzitadelle : Zerschmetterte Hallen : deDE : 540
