About XLoot

Notes about new version and the major changes made

If you are experiencing more than one problem, please make sure you completely remove XLoot and download it fresh from here or the Curse Client.

After that, please create or comment on a existing ticket with your error(s)

All options are available via /xloot or Interface -> AddOns -> XLoot (/xlm toggles Monitor's anchors, /xlg toggles Group's)

About

XLoot is a small group of addons which improve looting in WoW by replacing default frames.

XLoot Frame
Replaces the Loot Frame, adding more information and behavior/appearance options.
Adds rule-based auto-looting options
Allows you to link entire loot drops in chat
XLoot Group
Replaces Group Loot frames, modifies Loot Alerts/Bonus Roll frame
Group frames display current roll choices, the rolled numbers, and the winner.
If you experience any problems rolling on items, please disable XLoot Group and post a report with any error.
I understand this may cause you to lose out on a item, which is extremely unfortunate.
However, I am unable to debug it myself as I no longer play, but welcome any errors or volunteer debugging efforts.
The rest of XLoot can be used safely without Group.
There is a issue when you are the opener of a chest in Group Loot mode, your rolls will not be recorded nor will the events XLoot use fire. From my experience, your roll is still counted. See this bug report: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/15508091093
XLoot Monitor
Shows a "toaster" for looting items, similar to Guild Wars 2, allowing you to either more visibly see what you and others loot, or remove loot messages from your chat box all together.
XLoot Master
Provides a more convenient Master Looter menu

Any of these modules (Frame, Group, Monitor, Master) can be disabled like any other addon if you do not want their functionality.

Masque Skins

Not all Masque skins will work without adjustment.

Please see XLoot\skins.lua (Comments at the top) and then XLoot\SKIN_TWEAKS.lua (See examples and add tweak for skin here)

Old versions

I understand that these are large changes and may take adjustment. If you have suggestions as to how to improve the mod or something you want from the old version, please let me know.

If you are offended by these changes, a mop-compatible version will remain here but will not be supported: http://www.wowace.com/addons/xloot/files/429-mop-3-release/

I welcome your feedback.

    I'm having a problem where I can't use XLoot if I want to use my bonus rolls. I just killed a boss and no bonus roll window popped up for me. When I disabled XLoot and reloaded my ui the bonus roll window was there.

    I'll look into this, thanks for the report.

    Out of curiosity: You reloaded while the roll was happening, and the bonus roll window showed up for that roll?

    I don't know if I'm the only one, but I really miss the old "announce and timer" feature, since I'm using this in all my raids.

    Does anyone know if there is another loot addon giving this feature?

    Basicly what I really want is, the ability to announce a item in Raidwarning (preferably with the ability to customize text in the warning), and make a countdown like the old XLootMaster, but I want a message like this: "[ITEM] Roll MS and link your item", and then start a XX-sec timer.

    Would love to see this feature in XLoot, since the new version don't really have any benefits for me atm as a ML :/

    XLoot Master was written entirely on request, I've never been ML.

    When XLoot Frame (Known as XLoot 1.0 for a while) reached the next point, a lot of the backend had gotten rewritten. I updated the modules I used, and someone generously volunteered to port Master forward. Apparently that didn't make it.

    I agree it seems like a useful feature, and if I manage to get my hands into Master at some point restoring it is on my list. I'm sorry you're missing the functionality :\

    is there a way to extract the loot list of a raid? I'd love to extract: who got what - and if it was bonusroll or not. I just can hope, that xloot has this stuff - btw xloot is really awesome, i use it since you released it :)

    I've had some interest in writing a tracker, including what dropped and for who, etc. 

    I think there may already be other addons that do this in the meantime though.

    i would like to start saying thank you for this addon i have been using it for over a year and it is one of my fav addons.

    recently when i loot some items they dont show up on the loot monitor as being picked up and how many i have in my bag. i noticed it happens with the new ore recently (that just started happening a few days ago same with the draenic stone and timber) i have deleted the addon and redownloaded it thinking maybe an issue with the curse client messed up when i updated the addon but alas deleting the addon and redownloading did not fix the issue. 

    as i am not super tech savy with coding for addons and such i have hit a brick wall and not sure what else to try to resolve this issue. its not a major issue just wanted to see if anyone else has had the same minor issue

    I changed the default threshold for loot in Monitor, as it was too spammy for my tastes and I was suggesting it to new friends coming to wow.

    You can change the thresholds and other options under XLoot -> Monitor and -> Group, as both were raised.

    Has the group loot problem been fixed? where you couldn't roll on certain items your should be able to?

    So there's two separate issues:

    1. There were some items that were miscategorized by Blizzard. XLoot reported these correctly, and even the default roll frames would not have let you roll on them. Most of these seem fixed and were old content.

    2. C_LootHistory, the Blizzard API that Group uses to function, sometimes breaks when you are the opener of a loot chest. You can see this in action with the vanilla wow "/loot" window, it will not show you the rolls or result when it happens. From what I can tell with comparing my /loot with a friend's, your roll is counted in that situation, even though Group says you haven't rolled and /loot won't show you it either.

    Here is the bug report I have posted for #2: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/15508091093

    Ok, Thank you. I will go ahead and just use the group part of the addon. Love the addon by the way, thanks for creating it and keeping it up to date ;)

  • #922

    Is there a way to not show the "loot history" window (the one you see when you type /loot)?  I'm in Ashran a lot lately and there's constant loot rolls on the ears of the enemy players.  I've grown so tired of closing the window that I now just leave it open but as small as possibel and up in the corner.  But I'd just like to turn this off.  When I roll, let me roll, but don't show the loot history window.  It's not needed.

    This isn't part of XLoot. Interface -> Controls -> Auto Open Loot Rolls Window.

    Thanks, PassLoot works well.  Roll Need, Confirm BoP, when Zone = Ashran and I never have to click another ear.

    Quote from sola5ide »

    Speaking of ears in Ashran, is there any way to set XLoot to automatically roll need or automatically pass on those items, or other specific items?

    Yeah, I've noticed this problem farming dailies. Not yet, but it's on the table. I think there's some addons that should work alright with XLoot in the meantime, Passloot and Karni's Crap Filter are two that come to mind.
