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 honor points and conquest points of all your characters, including weekly caps
  • Tracks seals, garrison resources, oil and other useful currencies (configurable display)
  • Tracks weekly World Boss Loots (Sha of Anger, Galleon, Oondasta, Nalak, Celestials, Ordos, Drov, Tarina, Rukhmar, Kazzak, Garrison Boss)
  • Tracks LFR bosses looted
  • Tracks holiday boss encounters
  • Tracks daily and weekly quests completed for each toon (mouseover entry to list completed quests)
  • Tracks Tanaan Jungle oil bosses: Doomroller, Deathtalon, Terrorfist, Vengeance (mouseover daily quests)
  • Tracks Garrison invasion rewards (mouseover weekly quests)
  • Tracks monthly Darkmoon Faire quests completed for each toon (mouseover weekly quests)
  • 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, Secrets of Draenor, 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 (*)
  • 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the addon is disabled, or from other computers, or before a client crash, can result in this display being temporarily out-of-date or incomplete.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.

    <3 this addon, as an altoholic, I wouldn't be ableto play without it - it's always the first addon I install whenever I wipe my WoW install! Great job and thank you!

    Small request : Would it be possible to add your Rated Battleground current rating under the conquest tooltip? Or perhaps in the tooltip under the name? That's the only thing I'm missing from this otherwise brilliant mod =)

  • #256

    Decent idea - added in 5.6.0 (currently in beta testing)

  • #251

    Hi guys, first of all: I really appreciate this addon, esp because I have quite a lot of twinks and it does make life a lot easier. Thanks a lot! :) My friends (who also love the addon) and I have been wondering if you could somehow integrate which chars have been to the farm? That would be a wonderful feature :) 

  • #254

    Addon version 5.6.0 (currently under beta testing) adds support for tracking farm planting and harvesting on Sunsong Ranch.

  • #247

    Hi. I have a request;

    For the Indicators, could you make an option to have the counter starting from one color and it would be changing the higher the counter is to reach the maximum.

    So for 1/12 the color will be red, then gradually it will eventually turn all the way to green at 12/12.

    I like this much better than just one color, or class color. Thank you!


  • #245

    Lovely addon. Unfortunately, something in the 30/04 update completely stops SatrinaBuffFrames from running, and that addon is essential to my UI and no longer supported so I'm going to have to lose this one.

    I will continue to highly recommend this addon to friends and guildies though as it is the best I've seen for displaying the info. Nice work!

  • #246

    It's very unlikely this addon would directly conflict with SatrinaBuffFrames.

    It's possible that the updated Ace3 library embedded in SavedInstances is somehow breaking the no-longer-maintained SBF, which still embeds a long-outdated version of Ace3. You could try installing this (and all other Ace3 addons) disembedded to force the use of an outdated Ace3, but the better solution would be for SBF to merge a current Ace3.

    Please direct any followups to the ticket system.

    Would it be possible to track if we have looted the Key to the Palace of Lei Shen from a rare that week?  We are limited to only one drop per week from a mob.

  • #244

    That is already tracked under weekly quests, along with the other Isle of Thunder weekly events. Hover your mouse over the weekly quest count to see the details.

  • #249

    There is a delay of up to 2-3 minutes before the server reports the quest completion flag for IoT loots.

  • #248

    Thank you for the clarification.

    Edit: Hmm, I just checked and there's no change to my weekly quests after killing a rare and looting a key.  It only shows my Mogu Runes of Fate and the weekly Raid quest Something Foul is Afoot.

    Due to popular demand, I've decided to add trade skill cooldown tracking in upcoming version 5.5 (currently under beta testing). Give it a try and tell me how much you love it!

  • #238

    Where exactly is this trade skill cooldown for 5.5.0? Did you remove the mouseover pop-up for minimap?

    Noticed that the names are hidden, is this intended? (I only play on 1 server but I think it'll be confusing for players who on multiple servers)

    Currencies weren't tracked


  • #239

    If you want to help test the trade skill support you need to install the 5.5.0 beta. Also, nothing is displayed until your toon actually has a trade skill on cd. See the screenshot for an example of how it looks.

    There are many options to customize what appears in the tooltip (/si config) - you probably have currency tracking disabled. You can also customize the display of server names. You can also hold the Alt key while the tooltip is displayed to see some hidden info.

    The minimap icon disappears every time I log out and back in. I have to go into settings, uncheck the box, then re-check it for it to show.
