Gobling
Version: 1.11
by: svartalve [More]
Need help making decisions such as whether you should buy that sweet upgrade, or say no to a random /tell asking you to heal for a pick up group? Well look no further, with gobling you can now ask your very own pocket goblin prestidigitator. Just ask him your question and through goblin cunning and trial-and-error, he will say his mind. On occasion, Gobling may even express bafflement when the challenge is not as by-the-book as it looks like.

A fun, little addon that gives you your very own Pocket Goblin to help you make decisions as only a worldy, sarcastic companion can.

Note:

For the adventurous types, you can customize Gobling's YES/MAYBE/NO responses easily by editing Localization.enUS.lua in your preferred text editor.

It's like a goblin magic 8 ball!

May I make a suggestion? In your localization file, I notice that you run the UnitName function every time you want the name in the response. Since the player's name never changes, I recommend you define the name at the top of your file and concat that variable in your sentences. This also gets rid of unnecessary function calls.

ie,
Code:
local name = UnitName("player")
...
YES_1 = name..", oh yeah!",
