About 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 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the addon is disabled, or from other computers, or before a client crash, can result in this display being temporarily out-of-date or incomplete.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.


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.

    Thank you for this great addon!

    Holiday boss threads localized for zhtw, and also fixed KILL/TOTAL/ICON translation errors, hope an update is released soon!

  • #123

    In SavedInstances.lua 

    273line  >  elseif region == "CN" or region == "KR" or region == "TW" then -- XXX: codes unconfirmed
    374line  >   addon.resetDays["3"] = true -- thursday

    resetDays not "3"  ,Is "4".

    please fix thx.

  • #124

    Fixed in 4.5.0 beta 2 - thanks!

  • #120

    Since 1-2 weeks, I have a issue:

    TitanPanel and SavedInstances are both active.

    I rightclick the TitanPanel, and add the SavedInstances-Icon to the Panel; it seems to work fine.

    After a relog, the SavedInstances-icon isnt there anymore; I have to reactivate it every time I relog. Does anyone have the same problem?

  • #121

    This is caused by a bug in the latest version of TitanPanel with LDB addons using AddonLoader (which SavedInstances supports).

    You can vote for the issue on the TitanPanel support page

  • #122

    Thank you for this info. And yes, I use AddonLoader, too.

     PS, From the ticket:
    (3 days ago)
    The change was reverted and will be released as soon as practical.

    Edit2: The new version with this revert was just released a few few hours again.

    Great addon, thank you :)

  • #118

    SavedInstances v4.3.9 includes:

    * BUG FIX: Computer reboots with live instances could cause the instance limit tracker to get confused
    * Add an option to silence instance limit warnings for people who'd rather not see them
    * Fix an unreported bug with deserter cooldowns mysteriously disappearing

  • #112

    After few fast wipes on heroic dragon soul, savedinstances informed me that I am approaching limit of entered instances per hour ;-p

  • #117

    Fixed in 4.3.9 beta 1

  • #110

    Any chance of getting a line added that shows each character's item level?   even just the average could be useful

  • #111

    version 4.3.8 includes this already - just mouse-over the character name in the tooltip to see the item level and other information.

  • #105

    SavedInstances v4.3.8 includes:

    * NEW FEATURE (experimental): Tracking for the 5 instance per hour limit. Addon will now print informative messages when you approach/exceed the instance limit that Blizzard enforces. Mouse-over the addon name in the broker display to see your account's instance history. This feature 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.
    * NEW FEATURE: instances and characters may now be shown always, hidden always, or shown only when saved (the default)
    * NEW FEATURE: show some simple character info when mousing over a character name in the broker display
    * Add an option to show server name in tooltips
    * Reworked instance/character config screens
    * Update currencies on logout to reflect purchases
