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 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.

  • #81

    Doesn't work.  Seems to think the first attack is the pull even if mobs have been facepulled already.

  • #82

    That's exactly how it does work. It's not possible to see when it aggros someone through the combat log.  Typically speaking, a mob will punch its facepuller before someone hits it, I think. So this mod still has use for other situations. You'll notice that I did bold this fact in the description, anyway. However, I would like to investigate how the threat meter addon works to circumvent that issue.

    WoW still isn't really on my todo list right now, though.

  • #80

    I meant to myself, yeah.  I had it set with auto-yelling turned off, but I kept getting spammed by trash pulls in my chat box so I'm having to turn it off and then on when I need it.

  • #78

    Would it be possible to add an option to only announce who pulls a boss?  I really don't mind so much who pulls trash.

  • #79

    To yourself you mean? I suppose so, I'll look into it when I come back to this.

  • #76

    Any way of detecting who starts an encounter via clicking a thing (ex. Will of the Emperor console, Elegon console, Alysrazor feather, etc.)?

    Possibly, but I don't plan on paying for WoW ever again, so unless there's one of those for less than 20 I won't really be able to make/test that specifically. :/

  • #74

    I was just in an LFR group and we were pulling trash mobs. There were a few people accusing me of pulling the packs on several occasions, but I clearly waited for the tanks to pull. This addon is definately giving out false info for who pulled on trash mobs.

  • #75
    This is unable to determine group pulls, more or less. If the tank pulls, but the mob does not hit him or he does not hit the mob before you do, it will say you pulled instead. This is a very old and somewhat experimental mod I suppose. It should probably meter aggro too, if possible. I don't have time for WoW right now, and obviously I haven't touched this in like a year. I'll add a warning to the desc for you though. Sorry about that.
  • #71

    Can this be automatic to yell who pulled except the tank(s)? I'd really apprciate it!

    Those who aren't tanks should pay for their misdeads!

    Yes, that's the point of the tanks feature! It should add them automatically, at least in a raid. If it doesn't for some reason, you can use /wp tanks to add them manually.

    And of course /wp boss on to turn yelling on at all, but it sounds like you have it on?

  • #70

    I have notice it does not pick up all it is though it has a range problem or something

  • #73

    It's limited by the range of the combat log. :] I'm not sure how far that is.
