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the addon is disabled, or from other computers, or before a client crash, can result in this display being temporarily out-of-date or incomplete.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

Fix ticket 177/191: Intermittent reset time glitches for Oceanic players
Due to a Blizzard bug, the GetQuestResetTime() API reports wrong results for Oceanic characters in PST instances. This was causing SI to incorrectly use the US continental daily/weekly reset time for some saves on Oceanic players.
Luckily, GetGameTime() and CalendarGetDate() still seem to report correctly for the Oceanic home realm in this situation, so SI now uses a heuristic to detect the bug and adjust the time accordingly.
Add an '/si time' command to dump time debugging information

    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.

  • #235

    Please open a ticket with complete information. Include your complete list of addons.

  • #232

    It currently seems to say you are locked to Oondasta when you are saved to Nalak. 

  • #233

    You're using an outdated addon version. Addon v5.4.1 removes oondasta temporarily until Blizzard fixes the quest flag bug with that boss.

    Please help complain on the Blizzard forums to get this bug fixed.

  • #228

    The information listed in the tooltip is incorrect for me, and I can't force it to update via the Raid Information window. I open the window as suggested and the tooltip doesn't update. Any ideas?

  • #229

    Please open a ticket with complete information.

  • #224

    I often find myself playing my alts on a different computer than my main character. The issue I have with that is that SavedInstances can't keep track of all the completed weekly quests.

    I guess adding them under 'specialWeeklyQuests' or something like that would work but maybe an option to always check for user-specified quest-ids would be nice to have. Checking for weekly quests completed on other characters would eventually do the job as well.

  • #225

    I've been meaning to upgrade the quest support for awhile now. New version 5.4.0 has better support for this.
