About Who Pulled?

For those of you that want updates faster, I would be way more inclined if anyone actually donated.

If there's one thing pugs commonly hate it's probably those griefers
that decide to pull the boss on their team when they leave (usually
because they wiped once, HOLY CRAP it's a freaking pug ._.). Anyway
after someone did it to me with Onyxia (who you can't really run from),
now that my gear costs me like 10g to repair per death, I got pissed
enough to make this addon. I don't know who it was that pulled and
that was what pissed me off the most. So now, I will always know who
the jackass is, and I can not only alert everyone to who it is, but
remember who and why I hate them, and never have to raid with them again.

Back story aside. This is an addon that tells you who pulled the boss
(or any mob in the instance) no matter how they pull it, even if they
do it with a pet.
There are many surrounding features as well:

  • Notifies you of any pull and who it was by.
  • Allows you to recite the most recent pull, or the pull of a specific
    enemy to say, yell, party, raid, battleground (AV), guild, officer,
    raid warning, or notify with a quick command.
  • Can filter out pull notifications based on who's tanking.
  • Can filter out pull notifications based on mob names (ie. Risen Zombie)
  • Has a maintainable RAGE list of people who pulled stuff on you and you
    decided to remember them.
  • Silent mode for when the notifications are bugging you.
  • Optional automatic yelling or raid warning the name of the puller when
    someone other than the given tanks pull the boss.
  • In-game help file with /wp help An example of /wp help [topic] for
    those confused would be /wp help silent or /wp help ywho

Also if it wasn't apparent, this is only active in instances.

Testing done

  • Blames controller for MC pulls
  • Blames hunter for misdirect pulls (For the moment if you don't want to
    yell about the hunter, turn boss yelling off temporarily if you strategize
    to use this. I will make it smarter in a coming update.)
  • Blames shaman for searing totem pulls
  • Blames hunter for using Eyes of the Beast and making their pet attack.
  • Blames players that send their pet to attack, instead of their pet.
  • Blames hunter who lays a trap to pull.
  • Incorrectly blames the first person who attacks a group pulled by los, even if they're aggroed on the tank.

Configuration examples

/wp boss on - Sets it to yell on boss pulls by non-tanks.
/wp boss rw - Sets it to raidwarning on boss pulls by non-tanks (if you're raid leader or officer)
/wp boss off - Turns off boss pull yelling and boss pull raid warning.
/wp silent on - Turns silent mode on.
/wp silent off - Turns silent mode off.
/wp msg %p pulled %e! - Changes yell message to something like "SomeDick pulled Onyxia!"
/wp tanks Panzer,Steam-Khaz Modan,Sideswiper - Notes these three people as being tanks. (You can use spaces instead of commas if you want). The middle one being from the realm Khaz Modan.
/wp rage Onyxia - Saves the latest person who pulled Onyxia to your rage list. This will notify you if he ever joins your team again.
/wp forgive SomeDick - Forgives SomeDick, removing him from your rage list.
/wp list - Lists everyone on your rage list.
/wp list Akama - Lists everyone on your rage list from Akama
/wp list Onyxia - Lists everyone on your rage list that pulled Onyxia.
/wp ignore Deer - Ignores all pulls of Deer. This means it does not show a notification, but it's still recorded.

/ywho - Yells who pulled the latest mob.
/ywho Onyxia - Yells who pulled Onyxia.

    Is there an option just to echo the pull info to yourself rather then broadcasting it? As a tank, I like to know when DPS pull because they often mess up the pull and hurt the raid. But Pugs like to cry about anything and everything, including addons that post to the raid.

  • #96

    Add on isn't working for me. I have /wp boss on and /wp silent off.

    People are pulling bosses/trash in BRF and nothing is being said at all. I've got the new update and still nothing is happening.

  • #95

    Is there a way to give out a message when someone pulls the trash and is not a tank?

  • #94

    I did

    /wp silent on

    /wp boss on

    And I see nothing no yell in my chat or anything. I only want to know who pulled boss tank, dps, or healer and their name and realm

  • #93

    Why can't I put enter a mob with a dash in its name (Flesh-eating Insect, Grom'kar Man-at-Arms, etc.) into the Ignore list?

  • #90

    How do i filter it to like not annouce when its trash. I want only bosses.

  • #92

    /wp silent on

    /wp boss on

    Granted that yells it instead of just echoing it.

  • #89

    hey, any way to output this to a specific channel?

  • #88

    Big thanks for making this and even more for maintaining it now you don't even play WOW.

  • #91

    Well, I haven't been, but I'm installing WoW now and we'll see if I get to it.

  • #87

    hey i know you dont update this much or anything, but just have a little question about adding things to the ignore list, it doesnt seem to let me type the dash if a mob has one in its name, for example Shado-Pan Novice, i cant block out one of those because it doesnt recognize it any other way than by typing the dash in.

  • #85

    will there be further updates? not sure this addon works. sometimes it yells and sometimes it doesnt even though i saw a non tank pull.

  • #86

    I don't even know anything about modern WoW anymore. I may come remake my mods for WoW some day but it'd be fairer to say that I don't really plan on it. Sort of surprised no one's made a better version of this, yet.

    The thing you saw was probably a LoS pull and the guy wasn't hit.

  • #84

    Is there any way to get the announcement messages to be put in a side chat tab?  Like I have raid chat, say, emotes in one, and only this addon's announcements in the other?  Sorry if it's a question already answered, skimmed through and didn't see.

  • #83

    Is there any way to filter out all pulls that occur outside of boss fights?

    I really don't care who pulls what unless it occurs during a boss fight, unless the thing pulled IS a boss.
